Vinay Kumar to Tendulkar, no run, closer to the stumps, Tendulkar gets forward and defends it towards the off side


Vinay Kumar to Tendulkar, OUT, gone, another failure for Sachin Tendulkar, back of a length ball pitching just outside off, moves away after hitting the seam and induces an outside edge from the Little Master, simple catch for Boucher, and Bangalore are ecstatic
