    2.3 Done in by the short delivery, Manish was looking to get forward but Thushara slipped in a short one just outside off, around 127 kmph only but it climbed higher than what Manish seemed to anticipate and he ended up reaching out with an attempted pull and top edged it straight up 12/1
    15.3 Kallis is run out It was pushed to right of short straightish extra cover but Raina is too quick to allow that single.. Raina threw the ball to Jakati who does the rest 117/4
    6.3 Goes for the slog sweep again but sort of checks it a bit , perhaps Jakati slowed it up a touch or because he shortened the length, and Robin finds the man at deep midwicket. Gony doesn't make any mistake this time. 54/2
    15.1 moves down the track, and swats a high full toss to long-on. Enter KP 117/3

    10.5 Vijay falls after an entertaining knock. Will RCB make him rue this shot? Adrenalin rush I guess. He went for another hit over long-on but couldn't connect as well as he wanted and couldn't clear Manish at long-on 104/2
    6.5 Whaddaplayaaaaaaa! It was the googly that did the trick for him. Hayden charged out for the big hit, Kumble flighted it, also slowed it up wonderfully, got it to dip and it broke away from Hayden, who was looking to swing to midwicket, and Robin completed the stumping. 61/1

    16.3 Done in by the short delivery. Dhoni is beaten for pace and by bounce and mistimes the attempted pull .. a simple catch to Dravid at midwicket. Kumble pumps his fist. 138/3
    17.3 Cleaned up by the slow off cutter! It landed just outside leg, turned in, Albie pushed out at it, unsure of its destination, the ball slid in to hit the front pad and fell on the stumps! And here we go again. Twist twist twist! 143/4
    18.5 Badri combusts! It was the short lifting delivery, Dhoni mistimed to midwicket and this time Badri top edges it to backward square-leg and Robin runs across to take the catch 152/5
