7.1

Fernando to Goswami, OUT, Fernando picks up his third! Goswami tries to loft a good length delivery down the ground, he gets the direction right but not the distance, the ball goes in the air between mid-on and mid-off, Uthappa goes for the catch from mid-off and so does Nehra from mid-on, there's a collision between the two but Nehra gets to the ball before Uthappa and holds the catch, well taken

Royal Challengers Bangalore 39/3   R Dravid 1* (3b)   CRD Fernando 1.1-0-2-3

11.4

Smith to White, OUT, caught! It's that man Fernando again! White tries to loft a length ball over deep midwicket, he doesn't get under it and therefore can't get the necessary elevation to clear the boundary, he hits it in the air to deep midwicket where Fernando runs in and holds a low catch, White had played three dot balls and the pressure told on him

CL White c Fernando b Smith 26 (20b 3x4 1x6) SR: 130.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 74/4   R Dravid 8* (11b)   DR Smith 1.4-0-11-1

12.2

Nehra to Kohli, OUT, he's gone first ball! Nehra delivers an outstanding ball, he pitches it short of a length and gets it to rise sharply into Kohli who tries to run the ball down to third man, the ball gets far too big on him and he is cramped for room as well, Takawale takes the edge comfortably

V Kohli c †Takawale b Nehra 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 76/5   R Dravid 10* (14b)   A Nehra 2.2-0-15-1

13.1

Smith to Dravid, OUT, bowled him! Smith pitches on a good length on off stump and angles it into middle, Dravid stays in his crease, makes room, and tries to steer the ball from his stumps to third man, he misses completely and Smith hits

R Dravid b Smith 11 (16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 68.75

Royal Challengers Bangalore 82/6   B Akhil 5* (3b 1x4)   DR Smith 2.1-0-12-2

13.4

Smith to Akhil, OUT, Smith's got another one! He pitches the ball around off stump and slants it into the right-hander, Akhil moves across his stump, gets down on one knee and tries to play a cheeky sweep, he misses and gets hit in front of middle, that's plumb and AV Jayaprakash raises the finger in a flash

B Akhil lbw b Smith 5 (4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00
