    11.1 this is gone. Wonderful bowling from Chawla, bowls it slower and wider outside off. Rahul looks to loft it over cover, but the ball was too wide. Ends up slicing the ball to deep cover. Excellent innings 92/2
    1.3 six and out. Gayle goes. Big big wicket. Wonderful comeback for Morne. Goes back to his trusted length, the shortish length, on off. Gayle looks to pull, but fails to connect with it. the ball hustles off the pitch and hits the splice of the bat. Lobs straight up. uthappa waves all other fielders off, and completes the easy take 8/1
    16.4 gone this time. Russell won't drop those. Full and wide, Kohli looked to go straighter over cover. But got too far away from the ball, ended up reaching for it. The ball skewed off again, off the outside half. Russell takes a good low catch. Fist-pump from Gambhir. 129/4
    13.4 the very fast variation. Seam-up and gone. AB fails. That's a terrific delivery. Rushes AB and the ball may have seamed back in a tad too. AB clearly did not pick that either and tried to get his bat down in time, but the ball struck him on front of off. How big will that wicket be? 109/3
    19.6 another low full toss to finish. Another miscued drive to long-on. The throw back to the keeper is decent and Robin whips off the bails to find Watson well short. Great over for RCB again 185/7
    18.6 111 kph. Another offcutter on off, Baby looks for a scoop. Toe-ends it back to the bowler, Russell takes an easy catch. But such was his frustration with the preceding events, that he hurled the ball back at middle stump. Could have done some serious damage to that stump. 167/5
    19.5 taken this time. What a cameo though. Another low full toss, on middle and off. Binny wanted another six, went after it. But toe-ended it to long-on. Great knock 184/6

    0.6 gone. Uthappa falls. Beautiful bowling from Binny. Very full outside off, the ball moves away again. Uthappa brings out hard hands to push at the drive. Reaches out, away from his body. The direction of swings helps take the outside half of the bat. In the air and swallowed at point by Kohli 6/1
    8.6 gone this time. A well-executed yorker on off, Gambhir misses a straight ball and he knew straightaway. However, the ball struck him outside the line of off. Unlucky for Gambhir. Umpire Ravi gives him out. Decent innings, but KKR slump further. 66/3

    4.4 gone. No doubt about that. This one turned. Flight on leg, Lynn stays in the crease and pushes. But since the length was short, it allowed the ball enough room to turn. And it did. Spun past the outside edge and hit off stump. Great legspinner's dismissal. 34/2
    10.1 short and taken. Big wicket for RCB. Short on off, Pandey forehands the ball straight to long-on. Baby takes the catch. The umpire checks for the no-ball. Looks like there is a smidgen behind it. And he's given. Pandey fails today, KKR misfiring. 69/4

    17.3 would have been called wide had he left it alone, but Russell chooses to go after it and holes out. Is that the play that RCB needed? Very slow outside off, Russell stretches out for it and doesn't time the drive. Holes out to deep cover. Binny takes a pressure catch, reverse cupped. 165/5
