Gony to Kallis, OUT, Kallis doesn't look very thrilled as he trudges back, the ball holds its line outside off and kallis shapes to play an off drive, there's a thin nick and both the bowler and keeper are confident, Kallis didn't look back, the stump cam picked up a nick

JH Kallis c Patel b Gony 9 (7b 2x4 0x6) SR: 128.57

Royal Challengers Bangalore 17/1   MK Pandey 8* (3b 2x4)   MS Gony 0.4-0-8-1

Morkel to van der Merwe, OUT, what a comeback and the legstump goes for a spin! van der Merwe exposes his stumps and Morkel fires a yorker on the stumps, the batsman fails to squeeze it out and watches the stump disappear, and Murali is the most relieved of the lot

RE van der Merwe b Morkel 2 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 22/2   MK Pandey 11* (5b 2x4)   JA Morkel 1.5-0-14-1

Jakati to Pandey, OUT, the arm ball foxes him! Very slow through the air and Pandey goes for the slog way too early and loses his leg stump which lands a yard back

MK Pandey b Jakati 48 (35b 7x4 0x6) SR: 137.14

Royal Challengers Bangalore 94/3   R Dravid 32* (29b 5x4)   SB Jakati 3.3-0-27-1

Muralitharan to Dravid, OUT, Is there a twist here? Murali lands it on middle and leg from round the wicket and the ball straightens, Dravid shapes to sweep but he's caught on the base of the pad, Taufel raises the finger, Hawkeye shows it hitting the middle stump

R Dravid lbw b Muralitharan 44 (39b 6x4 0x6) SR: 112.82

Royal Challengers Bangalore 110/4   V Kohli 4* (6b)   M Muralitharan 2.1-0-5-1
