    8.6 Bravo's slower ball strikes. Agarwal, more a drive man, sees a fullish delivery and goes for it, gets only the toe end, and holes out to long-on 65/2
    3.3 and Ashwin strikes immediately after getting hit for a six again! And this is not the first time it has happened. I am not too sure about the decision, though. This was on offbreak that pitched short of a driving length and beat Gayle's sweep. Live time, I thought there was too much bounce and turn to be sure. Simon Taufel disagreed, and raised the finger. And as it so often happens, Simon Taufel is correct. Replays show it pitched in line with leg stump, turned a little, and skidded as opposed to bouncing too much. Would have hit the leg stump 30/1

    11.5 Jakati strikes back. de Villiers charges at him, looking to go over long-on, but gets a bit too close to it and doesn't get the elevation to clear long-on. Vijay completes the simple catch 85/3
    16.4 Timber! Pomersbach had the right idea. This was a length ball, he stood tall, and looked to bosh it over midwicket. However, he swung down the wrong line, and the off stump is out of the ground 133/4

    0.6 Zak strikes! This seams in, big movement, pitches back of a length, outside off, catches Hussey on the crease, plumb in front. Rauf has no second thoughts about this. RCB are pumped 3/1
    1.3 This, though, is bad news for CSK. Both openers gone. Aravind gets close to the stumps, and full, and Vijay plays across the line, misses it, and is hit in front of the stumps. Easy call for Taufel. Even though the ball didn't swing, Aravind did himself a huge favour by getting close to the stumps, eliminating the angle. Oh oh. Hang on. The replays surprise me again. The ball pitched just outside leg. He was unfortunate in that the ball pitched outside leg, but he wanted the leg-bye to slip, and Gayle had run him out anyway 7/2

    10.6 ... and strikes immediately. Badri tries to go inside-out, with the angle, and ends up slicing it to sweeper-cover. Aravind takes a good catch running in 70/3
    16.4 He has found long-on! Bangalore pull Chennai back once again. Low full toss, Dhoni tries the helicopter shot again, slightly late into the shot, and it goes off the bottom part of the bat straight to long-on. Mithun is safe there 131/4
