    5.4 he's not hit this well and has paid the price, straight to mid-on. This was another slower delivery from Woakes, full but way outside off, Rahane looked to hit this straight but ended up dragging it off the toe end. He's done his job though. There was intent right from the outset. 49/1
    6.5 Guess what? He's not run out, but has to go. Chahal pushes this through, gets this to drift away, there's a hint of sidespin as well. Short shapes to cut but has no room and gets the toe end of the bat as de Kock takes an excellent catch. 53/2

    12.2 he's dragged this back onto the stumps. Went for a big mow over deep square, had to fetch it from way outside off. Ended up getting a thick inside edge onto the stumps. 102/3
    18.2 right into the blockhole, he's toe-ended a lofted hit straight to mid-off. The muted celebrations in the RCB camp tell you a story. When was the last time you saw Kohli take a catch and quietly and lob the ball back to the umpire? 175/4

    0.4 rocks back and hammers this pull straight to Stokes at deep midwicket. This was hammered but it was almost as if McCullum didn't know there was a man there. Stokes made it look ridiculously easy. Timed his jump superbly and was airborne when it lodged in his bucket hands. 4/1
    7.6 he's pulled this straight to Unadkat at deep backward square leg. This kept a touch low but was asking to be hit, De Kock did just that but didn't hit this off the middle. As easy as catches come. So a half-tracker has fetched a wicket. Incredibly, a wicket has fallen and Chinnaswamy roars because AB de Villiers is striding out to the middle. 81/2
    10.2 pulled to Short who times his jump to perfection to take this leaping catch at deep midwicket. Is this the catch that turns it? Local boy Shreyas has silenced the Bengaluru crowd as he does a lap. 101/3
    12.3 first he takes out Kohli and now has AB. Absolute half-tracker down leg, AB rocks back and pulls this straight to deep square leg. Unadkat takes an excellent low catch. 114/4

    14.1 strikes, Buttler has finally taken a catch. This is slower and fuller outside off, Negi looks to work this to the leg side, but gets a thick edge as it cuts away late and this is well taken by Buttler diving to his left. 126/5
    18.5 paddles this full toss onto the middle stump. Went far too across and deflected it back. Wanted to go over the keeper's head. He's played a lovely innings though. 182/6
