View dismissal JD Ryder c †Rawat b Mascarenhas 0 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 gone! Early damage for Bangalore, pitched on a teasing length outside off and darted back in to kiss the inside edge as Ryder came forward to push at it, and Rawat made no mistake behind the stumps 0/1
View dismissal RV Uthappa c †Rawat b Mascarenhas 3 10 0 0 30.00
4.5 Uthappa throws it away, length ball on the off and his eyes lit up, tried to waft that across the line over midwicket, got the top edge and Rawat didn't have to move much to snap that 17/3
View dismissal LRPL Taylor b Mascarenhas 0 1 0 0 0.00
0.3 Dimitri you beauty!! Timber! Landed on a good length on the off stump and moved back in, Taylor walked across to clip it fine, missed it completely and leg stump went for a walk. He's on a hat-trick now 0/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen* c NK Patel b Henderson 32 30 4 0 106.66
8.5 massive blow! Short of a length on middle, goes for the pull, replays show that was he was perhaps into the shot a little too early, mistimed it towards midwicket where Niraj Patel dived forward to pouch a good catch inches from the ground 52/4
View dismissal R Dravid c Warne b MM Patel 66 48 8 1 137.50
19.4 excellent catch, slower ball bowled short outside off, Dravid made room and struck it well, slapping it past extra cover, but Warne's right at the edge of the circle and stretches and dives to his left to pluck that superbly 125/8
View dismissal V Kohli b Warne 3 8 0 0 37.50
11.5 bowled 'im, tossed up on leg stump, inducing Kohli to step out of the crease, he tries to work it away into the leg side, misses, the ball spins back in to peg back middle 63/5
View dismissal B Akhil b Warne 9 9 1 0 100.00
15.4 genius! Got him with the flighted one, thrown up on the leg stump sucking him out of the crease, he tried to drive it through the leg side, missed, and the ball spun back in to hit middle and off 88/6
View dismissal P Kumar c & b MM Patel 8 10 0 1 80.00
19.2 the change of pace does the trick, slower ball bowled full on a length on middle and off, Praveen, predictably, tries to smash that out of Cape Town but didn't pick it well, ended up lofting it really high and Munaf had to take a few steps to his left to take a well-judged catch, took a while to come down 119/7

View dismissal GC Smith c Dravid b Kumar 2 11 0 0 18.18
2.6 Bangalore are on top, pitched it short outside off and Smith was tempted into going for the cut, he slashed at it and edged it straight to Dravid waiting at a widish first slip 7/2
View dismissal SA Asnodkar c Kohli b Kumar 0 2 0 0 0.00
0.5 terrible shot, he's just facing his third ball, good length on middle and off and has a waft at it, looking to heave it over midwicket, mistimed it and it lobbed up towards Kohli at point where he took a dolly 2/1
View dismissal NK Patel c Kumble b Ryder 4 16 0 0 25.00
6.2 trouble for Rajasthan, length ball on the off and Patel, in an act of desperation really, tries to clear mid-on but is unable to do so as there's a tall Anil Kumble guarding that area, takes it on the second attempt 14/3
View dismissal T Henderson b Ryder 11 15 0 1 73.33
8.3 the slower one does the trick, bowled at 104.8 kmph, landed on a length on middle and Henderson swung across the line, didn't pick the change in pace, missed it as he was a little early into the shot and the ball crashed into middle 28/4
View dismissal YK Pathan c Ryder b Kumble 11 14 1 0 78.57
11.1 is that the end now? Kumble pulled it short outside off and Yusuf attempted to swat it back over the bowlers head, hit the toe-end of the bat, skied it towards long-off where Ryder took a good catch running forward 47/6
View dismissal AD Mascarenhas run out (Kohli/†Uthappa) 0 1 0 0 0.00
8.4 from Ryder, run out, Rajasthan in tatters now, utter confusion out in the middle, played to point off the back foot and Dimitri sets off for a single but there's absolutely no response from the non-striker, he's more than halfway down the pitch and an accurate throw to the keeper from Kohli seals his fate 28/5
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Kohli b Kumble 11 10 0 1 110.00
11.2 That should seal it for Bangalore, gave it air this time unlike the previous one where he bowled it flat and short, Jadeja got down on one knee and tried to slog-sweep it over deep midwicket, got a lot of elevation and though it was struck well, didn't get the distance he desired, Kohli ran well to his right to take a neat catch well inside the ropes 47/7
View dismissal SK Warne* st †Uthappa b Kumble 3 9 0 0 33.33
13.3 googly, deceives Warne in the flight, he charges forward to swipe it over midwicket, misses, Uthappa takes it cleanly and clips the bails to take Bangalore to the brink here 53/8
M Rawat not out 4 7 0 0 57.14
View dismissal MM Patel c Steyn b Kumble 0 2 0 0 0.00
13.5 Kumble takes his fourth, tossed up and Munaf's eyes lit up immediately, landed on a length on middle and he had a massive swing at it, mistimed it and Steyn ran well in from long-on to cup that 53/9
View dismissal Kamran Khan c †Uthappa b Kumble 3 5 0 0 60.00
15.1 five-for for Kumble, tossed it up outside off, Rawat tried to swing it over midwicket, got a thin edge that was snapped up easily by Uthappa 58/10
