    6.5 Uthappa tries to smash it like Russell, getting down low and slogging across the line. The ball hits the top edge though and goes really high in the air, when it lands between square leg and midwicket, it falls into Karthik's gloves. He called for it early and judged the catch well 71/2
    3.5 caught one-handed near his head at point! Mandeep has plucked it out of the air! Gambhir got down low and scooped a full ball flat and hard towards point, Mandeep jumped up with his right hand at head height and caught it cleanly. I think Mandeep thought it was going higher than it did and ended up having to adjust, he could have taken it with both hands 33/1
    8.4 what a strike by Karthik, he's run out Russell! Ten Doeschate pulled but was beaten by another slower ball, Russell tried to get on strike by stealing a bye but Karthik was too sharp for him. He collected cleanly and threw quickly, the direct hit catching the sprinting Russell inches short. A huge lift for RCB with eight balls to go 96/3
    9.1 a good length ball, on a straight line, ten Doeschate plays a lofted flick but sort of checks his shot, he ends up chipping the ball high in the air and the fielder moving back to get under the batch is AB de Villiers, he takes it easily 102/4

    3.5 Gayle slogs the ball hard and flat towards long-on, the fielder rushing to his right to get behind the catch is Russell and he makes it! He takes the catch on the move and the force of the ball sends him toppling to the ground but he hangs on. A superb effort and Russell is pumped! 48/1
    7.2 Russell can do anything! He's got Kohli now. It was just short of a length and hurried Kohli a bit, he mis-timed the loft straight to the fielder at long-on ... 81/3
    4.4 he's bowled him! A quicker ball outside off stump, a bit on the shorter side but AB's attempt at cutting it ended up in a bottom edge on to his stumps. KKR are right back in this after a hammering early on. That was really quick from Chawla 51/2
