Indian Premier League - 56th match

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Deccan Chargers

Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 12 runs

Minutes away from the start. Deccan are in a huddle. Kallis and Manish Pandey walk out. RP Singh stretches out at the boundary, wearing his purple cap. Ryan Harris will bowl, Kallis will face

** Toss: Anil Kumble has won and will bat first. They will play the same side that beat Delhi in their last game.

Ravi Teja tore his hamstring in the game against Punjab, and Azhar Bilakhia comes back for Deccan.

Minutes away from the game, why not read Sriram Veera's piece looking back to the early 1900s and to the South African spinners who made the googly an artform.

** The semi-finalists have been all but identified, but Royal Challengers Bangalore need to complete some formalities today. Bangalore, Deccan Chargers and Kings XI Punjab are tied at same number of points, but only Deccan and Bangalore are playing this last match. Deccan have the best net run-rate, Punjab the worst. So only hope for Punjab is for Bangalore to lose badly today. But how badly? At least 70 runs or with some six-seven overs to spare. You can read the detailed analysis here.

What is more interesting is, the losers tonight will play tomorrow again, against Delhi. And the winners will play Chennai non Saturday, and if they were to win, play again on the Sunday. So back-to-back matches for both of them in the offing.

R Dravid    5* (7b)      PP Ojha    2-0-20-0

Jaspreet, not to be mistaken for Jaskaran Singh who is playing as we speak, makes a pertinent point: "Wow!! 18 runs from the Suman's over. Surely that is the record for most runs in the 11th over in this IPL where wickets have been falling right, left and centre."

RP Singh comes back

13.1

Singh to Pandey, FOUR, shot, RP digs it in short, Pandey clears his front leg, and finds the gap between mid-on and midwicket. Flat-batted that was

R Dravid c Gibbs b Ojha 6 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Ross Taylor is the new man in, but won't be on strike

14.3

Ojha to Pandey, no run, thrown up again, around off stump, and played straight towards cover

14.4

Ojha to Pandey, FOUR, this is a superb shot, because this ball dips big time, from looking like a fulltoss it becomes a length ball, and instead of his initial shape to go midwicket, Pandey goes straight down the ground, and gets the power to beat long-on

Pandey in his 80s, enough time to get to a hundred, we would think. Jaskaran to bowl

15.6

Jaskaran Singh to Pandey, no run, shot, but can't beat point, short on the stumps, creates room and cuts

17.5

Symonds to Pandey, no run, nerves boys, just outside off, back of a length, looks to dab it for one, doesn't beat gully

17.6

Symonds to Pandey, 2 runs, there it is, gets a two to wide of long-on, an unlikely centurion, the first Indian to do so in all IPL matches. An unlikely opener first of all, but what an innings - he has slogged merrily, he has also played some smart cricket. More importantly he has rode his luck. Take a bow Pandey

End of over 18 (5 runs) Royal Challengers Bangalore 139/4 (RR: 7.72)

It's a pity that TV cut into ads, and didn't show the celebrations

Right the century is out of the way. Time to open up now

Harris to bowl

18.1

Harris to Kohli, 1 run, length ball, outside off, and driven down to long-off

18.2

Harris to Pandey, 1 run, full, outside off, makes room, and plays with an open face towards sweeper-cover

18.3

Harris to Kohli, 2 runs, length ball again, on off stump, played across the line, into the cow's corner for two

18.4

Harris to Kohli, 1 leg bye, goes for the bouncer, tucks him up, he misses the pull, but gets a leg-bye

18.5

Harris to Pandey, 2 runs, another good bouncer, surprises Pandey who walks down the wicket, and pulls with one hand off the bat

18.6

Harris to Pandey, 1 run, yorker, outside off, and plays it down towards mid-off

End of over 19 (8 runs) Royal Challengers Bangalore 147/4 (RR: 7.73)
MK Pandey    105* (70b 10x4 3x6)      RJ Harris    4-0-25-0
V Kohli    5* (6b)      A Symonds    4-0-15-1

RP to bowl the last over

19.1

Singh to Pandey, 2 runs, shot, this is absolutely smoked down the ground, length ball, and hit powerfully, but Gibbs is too good at long-on, dives and saves four

19.2

Singh to Pandey, SIX, oh boss, even Gibbs can't do anything about it, this is another length ball, and he has smoked it down the ground, over Gibbs

19.3

Singh to Pandey, 1 run, back of a length, makes room, and slashes it through the covers, will be only one

19.4

Singh to Kohli, SIX, Kohli joins the party, this is short, because he is not reputed to play the bouncer well, but he rocks back and pulls it sweetly over midwicket

19.5

Singh to Kohli, 2 runs, length ball, Kohli goes leg side, gets a leading edge, but no one wants to catch the skier at cover, neither Ojha from mid-off nor Harris from sweeper-cover

19.6

Singh to Kohli, SIX, and what a way to finish, another length ball, and flicked over midwicket, not much back lift, no follow through, sweet timing, RP has been dismantled in this over

What a finish after what a start. Pandey has played superbly. And he and Kohli have taken 23 from the last over. Now Bangalore need to lose in 11.1 overs if they are to bow out of the tournament. Improbable. Bangalore bowl 68 legal deliveries, and Punjab are out.

But what is more interesting now is, whether Bangalore can take the third place on the table or no. Will be a stiff chase, this one
