    3.1 the bowling change works for RCB, loose shot by Dunk, length ball angling in and Dunk was looking to chip this over mid-off, tamely lobbed it to Yuvraj at that position, wicket straightaway for Harshal 25/1
    8.5 much easier for Parthiv this time, this was a loose drive, chasing at one angling away from him outside the off stump, thick edge and taken by Parthiv 77/3
    7.5 the middle stumps is flattened and Dinda has his revenge after leaking plenty, this was coming back in, fuller ball, Rayudu playing down the wrong line 71/2

    9.4 Anderson's second attempt at clearing long-on in the same over doesn't fetch the same result, he fetched this from outside off and slogged, went high in the air and Kohli was well in front of the rope when he took it 84/4
    19.4 Starc's won this battle! Pollard moved right across his stumps to paddle that and he missed, Rohit had set off for the bye and Parthiv underarmed it to the bowler, Pollard had no option to amble out because Rohit was already at his end, Starc gestures to Pollard to come to his end and then whips off the bails aggressively 181/5

    9.5 Harbhajan's got the Big Fish and Gayle can't believe it! Harbhajan bowls round the wicket and the ball straightens, Gayle was down to slog and he was too early on the shot and the ball struck the off stump, Harbhajan is on his knee and pumps his fist and stays there 94/2
    5.1 slog and a miss, Harbhajan tosses it up from round the wicket, lands on a good length and Parthiv plays too early and the ball hits his stumps 53/1
    13.3 Anderson plucks that at long-off and Kohli has to go, this was pitched up on the off stump and Kohli aims for a flat six over long-off, Anderson moved to his right quickly and judged it well, it must have thudded onto his palm because Kohli hit that hard 119/4
    12.4 Bumrah does what Steyn couldn't do the other night! He knocks down the leg stump as AB attempts one of his audacious sweep shots, moved right across his stumps, the angle was taking it towards the leg stump, it goes for a spin and lands a few yards back 117/3
    15.3 that's a goal by Pollard! Rossouw looks to pull and gets an inside edge to the body and the ball drops in front of him, they take the single and Yuvraj was struggling, Pollard senses he wouldn't have time to pick up and throw so he settles for the kick and boots the ball towards the stumps and Yuvi was short 132/5
    18.2 scoops to cover, this was the slower ball by Malinga, Rossouw gave the charge and looked to clear the off side, chipped it to Rohit at cover 159/8
    16.4 and as many of you would have hoped for Starc's gone and with a little help from Pollard, this was fired full outside off and he tries to clear the off side and ends up scooping it to Pollard at cover 139/6
    17.3 knocks the off stump down this time, it was the off cutter, Harshal shuffled across and he wasn't too sure what he was trying, walked all around it and the ball brushed his hip and hit the off stump which lands a couple of yards back 151/7
