View dismissal PA Patel b Pietersen 30 41 26 2 1 115.38
10.1 Will he ever? Strategy time-out has worked for Bangalore. KP bowls full and straight, and Parthiv slog-sweeps all over it, and Uthappa collects the off stumps 106/1
View dismissal ML Hayden run out (Dravid) 65 43 35 9 2 185.71
10.2 Pietersen to Raina, is this the charm of KP or what? Hayden is gone, run-out. Raina wants to get off the mark, drops it towards point, and charges off. Hayden responds, but there never was a run in there, Dravid rushes in, swoops, and throws in a single fluid motion, and hits the off stump, beating Hayden's dive 106/2
View dismissal SK Raina c Kohli b Kumar 28 31 29 1 1 96.55
18.6 slower ball, from round the stumps, angling in, and Raina goes on side, lofted shot, and can't clear Kohli at long-on... the UP bowler has the last laugh in this mini UP battle, incidentally during a match being played between two plays from South India 165/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Bishnoi b Kumar 16 17 14 0 1 114.28
15.6 finally Bangalore hold on to a catch. Samrt bowling by PK, Dhoni wants to go over long-on, PK has bowled a legcutter, and the thick outside edge takes it to Bishnoi at long-off, an absolute sitter 144/3
A Flintoff not out 22 18 13 2 1 169.23
View dismissal JA Morkel b Steyn 5 5 3 1 0 166.66
19.6 don't rile a fast man. This is full and fast and ferocious, Albie makes room, but his bat comes down after the ball has hit the off stump, an angry Steyn looks at the umpire, and gestures perhaps meaning to say, "That wasn't wide, was it?" or perhaps "So what, the wide didn't cost me much, the extra ball got me a wicket." 179/5

View dismissal P Kumar b Gony 0 1 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 full, straight, thank you PK, plays all over it, and Gony gets the leg stump. Smart bowling, two bouncers, followed by a full, slower delivery. 0 for 1 after three balls, and the opening experiment has failed for Bangalore 0/1
View dismissal RV Uthappa st †Dhoni b Muralitharan 20 38 19 2 0 105.26
7.5 Murali you beauty! Flight, draws Uthappa out, dips, keeping it short of where Uthappa expected, and then turns it away, and beats the bat, and Dhoni completes a sharp stumping, Bangalore reeling 50/5
View dismissal JH Kallis lbw b Morkel 24 22 19 5 0 126.31
5.2 Kallis improvises too much for his own good, he walks across a long way, is beaten by a straight and full delivery, pitched outside off, will be touch and go whether it hit him in line. Yepp it hit him in line, and would have taken middle and leg 40/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c & b Flintoff 1 8 4 0 0 25.00
6.5 and a frustrated Taylor plays a horrendous shot, the ball goes straight up, ending just to the right of the non-strikers' end, and Flintoff is ready there with his buckets. Superb pressure bowling, and he gets instant results 47/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen* lbw b Muralitharan 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
7.3 and he gets KP first ball for a golden duck, and KP is showing Simon Taufel the bat, this one pitched on off, and straightened up, hitting KP in line, with the bat very close to the ball. Pietersen is not a happy man 49/4
View dismissal R Dravid c Flintoff b Balaji 20 35 18 2 0 111.11
15.2 it's all over tonight for Bangalore. It was another leg-side half-volley, Dravid looks for a six over square leg, but picks Flintoff perfectly 87/10
View dismissal V Kohli c Badrinath b Joginder Sharma 11 12 13 0 1 84.61
10.5 and Jogi hits back, a touch slower, Kohli looks to loft iot, no foot movement, and it goes miles in the air, towards extra cover, Badri and Raina converge, the calling seems clear as only Badri goes for it and holds on 66/6
View dismissal R Bishnoi c Balaji b Muralitharan 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
11.1 No. 3 for Murali, flighted, on pads, and Bishnoi, making his debut, gets stuck into it. Little problem, no real elevation, and the long-on is wide, so that it falls straight into his lap 66/7
View dismissal R Vinay Kumar c Hayden b Balaji 5 5 6 0 0 83.33
12.4 fulltoss, and what does Vinay kumar do? lobs it to Hayden at midwicket, and an easy catch despite the highly distractionous [not a word, but what the heck] orange cap. Bangalore sink in further 74/8
View dismissal DW Steyn run out (Raina/†Dhoni) 0 3 0 0 0.00
13.3 from Muralitharan, And Steyn denies Murali a five-for, plays it straight to short midwicket, who is Raina, the best fielder in the side, and sets off, only to be sent back, and rightfully so, but Raina has already had his man by then. And it didn't even require a direct-hit 78/9
