    14.4 it's finally over, the nightmare is finally over for Punjab, Bangalore gives a standing ovation to Chris Gayle as he walks off after pulling a short one straight to deep midwicket, the storm has blown over, Punjab have been left wrecked 154/2
    4.5 Dilshan departs, he tried to pick a length ball over midwicket, is not in control of the shot as bat turns in the hands, the ball goes a mile to get a view of the Bangalore skyline and comes down to find PK waiting, he takes it calmly 43/1

    14.6 gone! Piyush gets another one, too full and close for the cut, but Virat went for it, the ball hurried on, and clattered in to the stumps, Virat went flat down on his back on the ground as if to ram home the point that the ball kept low, the lad gets an A for theatrics, Piyush points towards the dressing room for effect 155/3

    0.1 gone first ball! boy, what a break for Bangalore, Gilly pushed a straight ball past Zaheer, and rushed down for the single, mid on got to the ball and fired in the throw, Gilly was still lumbering in when he was found short by the direct hit 0/1
    4.3 gone! it's Gayle night at the Chinnaswamy, flighted outside leg stump, and he gets a wicket, he looked to turn it but closed the face early, getting an edge that looped tamely to square leg, Gayle does a neat jig as he celebrates 28/3
    1.6 that will be the end of Nayar, wonder what they were thinking sending him at No 3, shuffled across and flicked a full one off the pads straight to Tiwary at square leg 5/2
    5.3 and another one goes! Punjab will want to forget this evening quickly, another leading edge, looked to work a length ball on the leg side, plays it early, Aravind accepts the dolly 34/4

    8.5 Gayle has another one, goes down for the sweep, full delivery hits him on the half volley, that is straight, that is dead, that is gone, and Gayle's smile just gets broader and broader 57/6
    7.4 I had to say that, didn't I? next ball Sunny abandons his crease, he is not close to the pitch and still has a go, Pathan settles under it close to the rope at long on and takes a high well-judged catch 50/5

    18.2 Aravind gets one more, it was the slower one, he went for a mow through midwicket from the crease, and edged it on to the stumps 104/8
    10.6 Gayle continues to do different versions of his celebratory jig, saw Piyush come down the track, fired it in, and the batsman yorked himself 67/7
    18.4 it's almost over now, another wicket, goes for this slow, full and wide one outside off, ending up slicing it to short third man, now Aravind and Gayle are smiling widely together 105/9
