    6.1 strikes straight away, full and wide, big outside edge as Kallis tries to drive hard and that's a sharp diving catch by Dinesh Karthik behind the stumps, latches onto and important catch and Steve Davis raises his finder this time 41/2
    4.5 got 'em, he's got his man now, short one again and Chipli can't hold back from the pull, the top edge flies high and Rajat Bhatia nearly makes a meal of the skier running back towards midwicket, he slips before taking the catch but holds on despite the tumble. McGrath isn't celebrating - he tells Chipli to stay on and gestures, 'Not out, not out'. He was really peeved with that edge not being given as out. 31/1
    15.1 down the track and tries to clear the midwicket region, bit of extra bounce for Maharoof and the leading edge pops high in the air for Dilshan, at point, to take a comfortable catch. End of a fine innings 102/4
    10.6 he's got 'em, that was a quicker one and there wasn't much spin there, Dravid tries to heave it over midwicket but that's through the gate and rattles the stump, the Dilshan plan has worked 73/3

    15.6 disaster this time, fine fielding from Shoaib Malik at long-on and there's a reckless run-out for White, Misbah cracks it to long-off and Malik needed to decide whether to go for the catch or simply stop it, he decided to go for the safer option, picked up and threw it in fast, White wanted the second but Misbah hesitated, the ball went to Maharoof and he threw it to the keeper to take the bails off, White was too far down by then. This is a big wicket, he can really biff it towards the end 105/5
    17.4 another run-out, this is just not what you want at the slog, short one that Misbah can't get away, top edge trickles to extra cover, and Misbah doesn't want a run, Akhil is too far down and Maharoof completes a simple run-out 122/6
    18.5 sensational bowling this, as lovely a set-up as it gets, short one followed by yorkers, Kumar was softened up early and had no answer to this one - full and swinging into him, he's rooted to the crease and sees the base of off stump being rattled. That's why he's the master. 126/7

    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
