    4.4 another one and Aaron has paid off in his call back and how! Hurried into him with a short ball and Smith's pull skews off a top edge. AB's at cover and picks up a simple reverse-cup catch 29/2
    4.2 tees off again and when Starc is in the vicinity you'd better tuck your bat under your arms and walk off. Back of a length again from the bowler and Baz cleared his front leg to flay it over midwicket. But this time there was a man there 29/1

    14.3 do not hit it in the air to Mitchell Starc in the outfield. Period. This was a little short and Huss saw an easy escape as he pulls, but he picked the man almost perfectly 104/3
    16.2 short ball and Dhoni has slapped it straight into the hands of point. Gayle dives, and if that isn't news enough, Super Kings' trump card walks back after six balls. No finishing today. 115/4

    16.6 he's got his man, but is it one hit too late? Dupes Gayle with his length and the turn he gets as the batsman moved outside leg. He was looking for another big hit, but seeing the ball not in his arc, he looked to defend with an open face and is beaten. And to make matters worse, off stump is knocked back 110/3
    3.3 the sweep seems to be his get out of trouble shot, but this time it's caused his downfall. Ashwin gets a little more bounce and the ball loops off the back of the bat towards first slip 14/1
    14.1 saw him coming down and he fired it flat and outside off. Kohli tries to reach out as far as he could, but the pitch enables the ball to turn a lot more than he anticipated. He must have known he was in trouble halfway through his shot and though he tries his best to push that back leg of his back to safety, it gets stuck on the line. Dhoni takes care of the rest 75/2
    17.6 another twist! AB has top edged a slog sweep. The RCB fans had their heads in their hands as they saw Jaddu hustling in off the boundary. He had a lot of ground to cover and he was quick enough to make it seem a pretty straight forward catch 125/4

    19.4 flighted outside off, Rana has pummeled it into the hands of short midwicket! He had nailed that, but Baz leaps up to his right and plucked a blinder 138/5
