    8.6 Same shot, hit further and he's out. On one knee, Sohal lofting it to long-on. Twiwary is on his haunches and pouches it safely 70/2
    2.5 Dhawan holes out. It's a good ball from Khan, better line and length, but Dhawan plays a silly shot. Looking to go over the top but mis-times. It goes high and Vettori gets under it at mid-on to give Bangalore their early breakthrough. He had to back pedal a little, and fell over while taking it, but held on 20/1
    14.4 full and wide from van der Wath. Sanga a litte unsure, tries to drive, hits the ball and the ground in the same stroke. None of that puts de Villiers off and he takes the catch cleanly. Small pause from Sanga but he's off as soon as he is given out 113/3

    19.2 great catch Virat Kohli. Duminy gives that an almighty thwack over mid-wicket and it looks likes it destined to go all the way. Kohli is on the fence and leaps up to grab that. Birthday boy gone for 22. 168/4
    19.6 Zak ends the innings with a wicket. That's full and straight and strikes Christian on the back pad. He looks to run a scrambled single but Zak is already celebrating. 175/5

    4.6 Manpreet Gony ends a good in superb fashion. It's a touch shorter, rushes onto Agarwal, who is looking to hit everything out of the park. He hoicks it up to mid-on where Amit Mishra has all the time in the world to get under it. Bangalore in real trouble now. 27/3
    1.6 Hyderabad erupts! The Sri Lankan danger man is gone, caught behind by his compatriot. Sharma bowls it on a length, Dilshan gets a fine edge and Sanga makes no mistake 8/1
    2.6 That did not work for Bangalore at all. Zak makes a bit of room, full toss from Steyn and it hits middle. Great sight for the world's best bowler, accurate as always. 16/2

    17.4 It's over. Gony ges for a big hit over mid-wicket but misreads the delivery. It's a slower ball and it goes on to hit off stump. Th big man is gone, he kicks the ground in frustration as he leaves. This is a big ask for Bangalore now. 130/8
    6.4 goner! Gony has been bowling a superb line so far and this time he is rewarded. de Villiers gets a thick outside edge and Sanga does the rest. Big, big wicket for Deccan, de Villiers goes without scoring and the Hyderabad curse is slowly being broken 29/4
    11.1 too much pressure and Tiwary had to go for a big one. Tries to hit that with the turn and gets a top edge that goes straight up. Sanga gets below it takes safely. Bangalore folding. 56/5
    16.5 yorker length, Pujara wants to go over the top but doesn't get his feet moving at all, goes straight to Christian at extra cover 118/6
    16.6 but none of that tonight. Beaten for pace, van der Wath gets an outside edge and Sanga takes another catch. The Steyn remover has made the difference here 118/7
