Commentary

Presentation:

Sangakkara: We were not tight enough in our fielding. We should be tight in all departments. You're bound to see flatter tracks so the bowlers have to adapt."

Dravid: "Who says experience isn't required in T20? Hodge was excellent. It's the only form of the game I'm playing now so I better do well. Today we were a bit lucky with this game."

Hodge is the Man of the Match: "It's the role of the Australian to attack the best fast bowlers. T20 is really enjoyable, half the battle is trying to stay fit. I'm just trying to do exactly what Rahul wants."

Thanks for your company. You can turn your attention to the events in Bangalore now. Cheers!

End of match: Darren Lehmann is still standing in disbelief, as is Sangakkara. The Royals bench charge onto the field. You would have to say that the Chargers 'lost' this game, mainly because of their fielding towards the end. They were in control but panicked. Even Steyn couldn't do anything. Just take a look at the bowling figures.

Jegan: "If this trend continues, IPL-5 will be remembered for bowlers crumbling in death overs. Wonder what makes them to bowl so many noballs - beamers - towards the end."

Murali: "Last match Steyn conceded only 12.. This match his economy rate is 12 from 3.4 overs! What a changeover!"

Jose: "Evergreen Hodge does it for Royals!! Victoria, you bloody beauty..still dont know how Hodge ended up with not getting many opportunities in Australia's T20 and ODI teams."

The presentation will happen in a while. Stay with us for that. The toss at Bangalore is underway.
