Malinga to Kallis, OUT, lovely bowling, outswinger, back of a length outside off, Kallis follows and edges. Malinga is pumped up. Out comes KP, Kevin Pietersen

JH Kallis c †Rayudu b Malinga 11 (9b 2x4 0x6) SR: 122.22

Royal Challengers Bangalore 24/1   R Dravid 13* (7b 3x4)   SL Malinga 0.4-0-5-1

Harbhajan Singh to Pietersen, 1 wide, OUT, and he has him stumped! Sees his coming down, bowls it down the leg side, it turns across him, and even though Rayudu doesn't make a clean collection, KP is too far down the pitch to make it back in time. He dives back, but in vain. Mumbai crowd goes wild. It's actually good work from Rayudu who is so far down the leg side he has to dive to flick the bails off

KP Pietersen st †Rayudu b Harbhajan Singh 19 (14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 135.71

Royal Challengers Bangalore 47/2   R Dravid 16* (14b 3x4)   Harbhajan Singh 0.1-0-3-1

Pollard to Uthappa, OUT, slower ball, huge wicket! Pollard can do no wrong tonight! It's the slower ball, and he ends up dragging it much squarer than he would have wanted to hit, and Dhawan completes the pressure catch at deep square leg

RV Uthappa c Dhawan b Pollard 26 (13b 2x4 2x6) SR: 200.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 81/3   R Dravid 23* (21b 3x4)   KA Pollard 1.3-0-7-1

Pollard to Dravid, OUT, Dravid sacrifices his wicket for Taylor! This is punched to point, straight to the fielder, Dravid takes two non-committal steps, sees Taylor charging at him, and decides to give up his wicket. He is caught way short despite a wide throw, and Pollard dives to whip the bails off

R Dravid run out 23 (22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 104.54

Royal Challengers Bangalore 81/4   LRPL Taylor 0* (0b)   KA Pollard 1.4-0-7-1

Pollard to Kohli, OUT, edged and taken! Pollard is all over Bangalore! And Kohli is not walking. Umpires consult with the third umpire, and the replays show it was caught about a foot off the ground. It was a slower ball that he looked to run to third man, but the pace variation did him in

V Kohli c †Rayudu b Pollard 9 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 128.57

Royal Challengers Bangalore 97/5   LRPL Taylor 4* (5b)   KA Pollard 2.3-0-11-2

Pollard to Pandey, OUT, and Pollard gets one more! Slower ball slogged away, Duminy at deep midwicket holds on to it head high, takes a step back, sees his inches from the rope, and then puts on the brakes very well

MK Pandey c Duminy b Pollard 5 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Royal Challengers Bangalore 108/6   LRPL Taylor 8* (9b)   KA Pollard 3.4-0-16-3

P Kumar b Harbhajan Singh 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 118/7   LRPL Taylor 17* (15b 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 4-0-44-2

R Vinay Kumar b Malinga 8 (8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 134/8   LRPL Taylor 23* (25b 1x6)   SL Malinga 4-0-24-2
