    3.1 this time, the catch has been taken. Too full and sliding in on the pads, Rahane gets down to sweep but it's too early. It's a full toss so doesn't come on as low as he was expecting. Gets a top edge for pre-meditating it and it lobs to short fine leg 18/1
    8.2 fired quicker outside off. Sees some width and tries to stab it through the off side, but it does not get up as much as he expects it to. He is also slightly rushed and gets an outside edge to the wicketkeeper 58/2
    13.5 Milne takes the catch, nearly dropped it, but safe in the end. Slants it in from outside off. Smith walks across and tries to heave it away, he does not find the middle of the bat and skews it high in the air. Milne at long leg takes it clumsily 108/3

    1.6 inside edge? No, bowled, in fact. It seems as though the ball has missed everything initially. There is a noise as the ball goes to the keeper who catches it. They go up in appeal and it turns out the bail had been dislodged. Just the bail, the stumps aren't really dislodged, so not immediately visible to the naked eye. Head perishes for trying to play an ill-advised cross-batted shot. through the leg side. It was too full to do it and angling in to him as well 11/1
    17.5 gone next ball. Kohli backs away as he comes down the track and the bowler does well to take it away from him. Fires it full and Kohli has to reach out. Pace off, so no timing. Taken in the deep, at sweeper cover 84/9
    4.4 driven straight to short cover. That's a simple catch. Hit hard but straight at him. Shifts back and across slightly and goes for a big drive off this fuller ball and picks out Tiwary. This is a massive blow for RCB 32/2
    7.4 oh, dear! That is dreadful communication. Kedar Jadhav is all the way down and run out by a huge distance. Short and wide, slapped to point who stops the ball and the batsmen initially look for the single but decide against it. Kohli is some way out of his crease, so the throw is at the non-striker's end. The bowler fails to collect it cleanly and Jadhav then decides to steal a single. Kohli was deep inside the crease. He makes a start for the second, before halting in his tracks. Wasn't really looking at Jadhav. Too late by the time he does see him, Jadhav is all the way down. Dhoni takes off the bails. 44/3
    8.4 Smith is not sure if he has taken the catch. This is going to be referred upstairs. Soft signal is out. That looks out. Smith dives forward and it seems like he has fingers underneath the ball. Remember, the soft signal is out, so they need conclusive evidence to overturn this. But it seems pretty good. This will likely be out. Coming to the delivery, it was sliding in on leg and the batsman backs away outside leg and tries to flick it but can't keep it along the ground, Smith takes a smart catch at short midwicket 47/4
    9.5 holes out to deep backward square leg. Short ball does the trick. It is banged in outside off and Binny has to fetch it from there, gets big on him as well and all he can manage is a top-edge to Washington Sundar 48/5
    12.4 hit straight to long-off. Every time they try to go big, they are finding the fielders. Tahir floats it up and pushes it across outside off. It's the googly. Negi backs himself to go over long-off despite a fielder standing in front of the boundary. Can't get it anywhere over him, comes straight at him for a simple catch 61/6
    14.6 flicked uppishly and straight to Smith at short midwicket. Googly from Tahir, not picked my Milne, who flicks it uppishly and straight into the hands of the Rising Pune captain 71/7
    16.5 googly from Tahir. Floated up outside off, spinning in and beats the bat of Badree who is looking to go over the bowler's head. Ball crashes into stumps 82/8
