    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
