    8.6 that's a risky second and he's paid for it! slashed away to deep point and they think of two but Cameron White is quick, he unleashes an accurate throw and Gambhir is well short of his crease, Sreevats whips the bails off quickly, Gambhir doesn't even wait for a decision, runs all the way back 100/2
    6.6 what a catch! It required a moment of brlliance to end this knock. Short of a length and outside off, he rocks back and crunches it hard towards point but Chipli pulls off a sensational diving catch, lunging full-length to his left and completes the catch when still horizontal. That's the breakthrough but is it too late? 90/1
    14.2 got 'em, that's a big wicket, could there be a twist in the tale? Steyn gets one short of a length and it's speedy, too close to the stumps there and AB tries to cut one that's too close to him, top-edge flies to the keeper and Bangalore are cock-a-hoop 123/4
    13.4 brilliant bit of bowling and equally smart piece of stumping from Goswami, Dilshan tries to heave one over midwicket after dancing down the track but Kumble beats him with a legbreak that turns and bounces, Goswami plucks the ball from wide of the stumps and pulls off a quicksilver stumping. Dilshan tries to get back but the bat is in the air when the bails are whipped off. Third umpire says 'Out' and rightly so 121/3

    15.3 got 'em! another one for Kumble. This is turning into a humdinger. Loopy legbreak outside off, Karthik pushes tentatively and that's uppish, Cameron White is a fine fielder and he throws himself at cover to complete a sharp catch, Kumble gets one more. Bangalore is abuzz 132/5
