    15.1 gone this time, easily caught at short fine-leg! this is fuller on the off stump, and he was looking to scoop it over the short fine-leg fielder who was inside the circle, does not get it off the middle and it's gone high and to the fielder, simple catch 119/3
    6.3 and now he's gone, big, big fish and a good, good catch! Gayle was looking to repeat that stroke, only this time he was looking to play it over mid-wicket than hitting it straight, gets bit of an outside edge and it's gone very high in the air, Bhuvneshwar has to run across to his left and he takes a very good catch there, Gayle's gone for 21 36/1

    12.6 bowled him, he was looking to hit it across the line and Kohli's been castled! this was not as full as the previous one, he was looking to swipe it over mid-wicket but misses, bowled, two down now! 99/2

    17.5 and this time he's gone, an excellent innings comes to an end there. it was shorter in length and somehow it seemed stuck into the pitch, but of turn away from the bat and he was looking to play across the line, gets the outside edge and lobs up gently for RP to get the catch 159/7
    2.5 and now he's gone! Six and out! this was wider outside the off stump and he tries to repeat the same stroke, gets an inside edge and is bowled, big wicket given his form 20/1
    6.6 gone, out, run-out! shorter in length, he was looking to run it down to third-manand they try to go for the second, chancing Muralitharan's arm, it's a decent throw over the stumps and hes short there! the on-field umpire did not even call the third umpire there! 46/2
    10.1 gone this time, caught at long-on, Yuvi's gone! he was looking good and was going after anything he thought he could, was a short of length ball and wanted to pull it away, does not time it too well this time and it goes straight to the long-on fielder, easily caught 77/3
    10.5 edged and gone! Smith's caught behind! he was going down the pitch and trying to crash it through the covers, gets a thin outside edge and it's easily caught by the keeper, another one bites the dust here 81/4
    16.2 full-toss and Gayle's taken it at point! he got it on the full and Mathews wanted to crack it through the point, gets the toe end of the bat and it lobs up to the left of Gayle at point who dives and grabs it well 144/5
    17.2 full-toss and that's hit straight to long-on, tough catch made it look very easy! it was smacked hard, does not get it off the middle of the bat and de Villiers runs in and takes it low down, six down now 153/6
    18.4 and this is as easy as you like, Kohli gets a catch, RP gets a wicket and Bangalore have almost got a win...short of length and he was looking to play it over long-off, not too much timing and it's gone straight to the fielder 162/8
    19.2 and gone, Gayle's got his first wicket, lbw and that's the end of the ninth, lbw trying to hoick it over the leg side 165/9
