Mascarenhas to Ryder, OUT, 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

Mascarenhas to Taylor, OUT, 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

RV Uthappa c †Rawat b Mascarenhas 3 (10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 17/3   KP Pietersen 13* (16b 1x4)   AD Mascarenhas 2.5-0-10-3

Henderson to Pietersen, OUT, 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

KP Pietersen c NK Patel b Henderson 32 (30b 4x4 0x6) SR: 106.66

Royal Challengers Bangalore 52/4   R Dravid 16* (10b 3x4)   T Henderson 0.5-0-6-1

Warne to Kohli, OUT, 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

V Kohli b Warne 3 (8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Royal Challengers Bangalore 63/5   R Dravid 24* (20b 3x4)   SK Warne 0.5-0-3-1

Warne to Akhil, OUT, 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

B Akhil b Warne 9 (9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 88/6   R Dravid 38* (34b 5x4)   SK Warne 2.4-0-10-2

MM Patel to Kumar, OUT, 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

P Kumar c & b MM Patel 8 (10b 0x4 1x6) SR: 80.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 119/7   R Dravid 60* (46b 8x4)   MM Patel 2.2-0-11-1

MM Patel to Dravid, OUT, 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

R Dravid c Warne b MM Patel 66 (48b 8x4 1x6) SR: 137.50

Royal Challengers Bangalore 125/8   R Vinay Kumar 0* (0b)   MM Patel 2.4-0-17-2
