    0.1 oh lord, whats happening! Its a first-baller! I've lost count of how many times this has happened this season! KP tosses it up outside off stump, McCullum cuts straight into the hands of the point fielder, who didn't have to move an inch 0/1
    11.2 gone! Gayle swings across to one gently flighted up, thinks he's found the gap but Goswami keeps his eyes on the ball running around from midwicket and takes the catch, falling over after doing so just for a bit of effect 70/4
    5.5 got em with the slider! Kumble flights it up on a length and the ball skids on to hit Hodge just around the knee roll, very late on the shot, and Mark Benson raises the finger 45/2
    8.3 and the short ball works again, how many times in this man's career have we seen him succumb to that, even I've lost count! After the fuller slower ball, PK changes up with a short delivery on the stumps and Ganguly makes a real mess of that, just lobbing it over the infield and straight to the man running in from the deep midwicket boundary, easiest catch he'll get 54/3

    16.3 another one to Kumble, sliding it down the pads, Saha gets too much under it and top-edges a forceful slow-sweep straight to KP, jogging to his right from backward point 110/5
    17.4 up comes Mark Benson's finger in a flash! van der Merwe flights it up slowly on the stumps, Lokhi is late on the sweep, the ball looks to have hit him pretty much in front and the umpire has few doubts 118/6

    12.4 Kallis goes, looking to follow KP with a pull shot, fetching a shorter delivery from outside off stump but he was never in position to play that and van Wyk calls for the top edge and pouches it running across to his right 77/2
    11.1 and he strikes! A needless shot from Goswami, clearing the front leg and slogging one gently floated up outside off stump, and he gets the faintest of tickles which van Wyk does well to hold onto for a smart catch standing up ... Hodge jumps up and a good innings is over 69/1
    15.6 oh what a mess this man KP has been for Bangalore! Shuffles about his crease, takes a step down and chips this up over mid-on, Saha runs in takes an easy catch 107/4
    15.4 gone! Hodge gets another with a faster one that skids through to Kohli, who gets cheeky and tries to play a late dab but only threads a thin edge to van Wyk, taking another good catch when standing up to the stumps 106/3

    18.5 another edge and a wicket! Roelof what are you doing? Ishant pitches it up on a length, Roelof shuts his eyes and plays a really bad shot, getting a thin edge through 129/5
