View dismissal JH Kallis c NK Patel b MM Patel 10 14 0 1 71.42
4.4 that's gone miles in the air and it's been caught on the second attempt! Kallis tried to pull the ball but was a touch early on the shot, the top edge swirled high in the air towards deep backward square leg, Niraj Patel went for the catch and fumbled it at first attempt, he managed to recover in time and grabbed it ten inches from the ground 22/2
View dismissal W Jaffer c Carseldine b Singh 8 9 1 0 88.88
2.2 caught! Amit's made up for that dropped catch, he bowled a good length ball on off stump, Jaffer tried to drive off the front foot but totally mis-timed it, he ended up spooning an easy catch to Lee Carseldine at short cover, soft dismissal that 10/1
View dismissal RV Uthappa lbw b Jadeja 17 20 3 0 85.00
8.1 and he's trapped Uthappa plumb in front with his first ball! Uthappa tried to close the face and play the straighter one on the leg side, he missed and got hit in front of middle, the umpire's finger was up in a flash 40/4
View dismissal R Dravid c †Ojha b Carseldine 0 2 0 0 0.00
5.5 caught down the leg side! Carseldine pitched the ball outside leg once again and moved the ball towards the batsman, Dravid tried to play the leg glance but the ball thudded into his glove and went towards the wicketkeeper, Naman Ojha dived to his left to take a sharp catch 29/3
View dismissal V Kohli c Morkel b Jadeja 15 22 1 0 68.18
14.1 that's a super catch! Virat cuts from outside off stump and the ball goes in the air towards short third man, it's a flat chance and Morkel bends down low to take a sharp catch, he's really tall and did well to take that just before it hit the ground 72/6
View dismissal MV Boucher b Jadeja 6 8 0 0 75.00
10.5 bowled him! Jadeja bowls a fuller, straighter and faster ball, it's too close to cut and Boucher gets a bottom edge on to the stumps, that's a huge loss for Bangalore, their tail is a wicket away 52/5
View dismissal RE van der Merwe b Singh 15 16 1 0 93.75
16.4 that's an outstanding change of pace! 102 kmh! Roelof was swinging across the line even before the ball pitched, he missed and the ball uprooted leg stump 85/7
View dismissal D du Preez c NK Patel b Singh 10 13 0 0 76.92
19.2 caught in the deep! Amit bowled another slower ball outside off, du Preez waited for it before lofting down the ground, he may have spotted the slower one but he still didn't time it well, Niraj took an easy catch and didn't fumble it this time 103/9
View dismissal P Kumar run out (Morkel) 7 4 0 1 175.00
17.2 from Morkel, he's run him out! Morkel bowled a full and straight delivery, Praveen hit it straight back to the bowler and incredibly set off for the run, what was he thinking, Morkel took a moment, perhaps in disbelief, and then threw down the stumps at the striker's end, Praveen actually didn't know where the ball had gone after the yorker hit him on the boot 92/8
View dismissal R Vinay Kumar b Singh 12 13 0 1 92.30
19.6 Amit's bowled him with another slower one, that's his fourth wicket. It was full and straight, Vinay swung across the line and missed, all six balls in the last over were slower ones 105/10

View dismissal LA Carseldine run out (Kohli/†Boucher) 9 8 1 0 112.50
8.4 from Kumble, that's an awful mix-up and Carseldine has to go, or is it Ojha? Carseldine pushed the ball towards mid-off and set off for the single, Ojha was ball watching and Carseldine kept running, both batsmen were at the same end when Virat threw the ball to Boucher, it's Ojha who's walking off, now he's waiting, it looked as though Ojha was back in his crease, the third umpire has to decide, it looks like one of those photo finishes and it is Carseldine who is out in the end, bizarre mix-up 48/2
View dismissal YK Pathan c Jaffer b du Preez 22 19 2 0 115.78
13.5 right, are the other bowlers watching? du Preez bowls another short one which doesn't bounce as much, Yusuf tries to pull but gets a top edge towards long leg were Jaffer takes the catch, Yusuf has looked suspect against the short balls today 91/3
