    13.6 gone. 132 kph, not too fast, low full toss coming in towards middle and leg. And Bangalore's best batsman for the day cannot make contact. He misses and the stumps are rearranged 104/7
    1.1 well, no fastest fifty or anything today. Dravid has gone first ball. Bollinger lands it back of a length outside off, Dravid was setting himself up for a drive and went through with it without any conviction. Pops up and lands in front of mid off, Albie tumbles forward, does not injure himself and pouches it easily 2/1
    2.6 there was an air of inevitability about this. Uthappa perishes as Bangalore search for the boundaries against some unplayable bowling. Back of a length, and a hint of away movement again. Uthappa moved forward, he reckoned straight bat was the way to go, but it was not full enough, so he ended up looking to work it without getting to the pitch. Big loopy top edge, straight up and Vijay takes an easy catch in the covers 7/2
    3.3 another one bites the dust. Sharp bouncer from Bollinger, clearly caught Taylor by surprise, he was not on the backfoot and went for the pull out of nowehere. Straight up, straight down, and Vijay is under it once again 12/3
    7.3 folks, this is just not Bangalore's day and it is geting worse by the moment. Kohli looks to flick from leg stump, it comes on slowly and he is early into the shot. It lobs up towards midwicket, but surely Ashwin running in from the boundary did not look like he was going to take it. Well, he did - a couple of big steps towards the end and a tumble forward. Kohli is gone. 37/4
    10.6 gone. Another slog sweep, and it seeks out deep midwicket, where Srikkanth tumbles forward and takes it nicely 67/5
    11.5 I spoke too soon. du Preez is gone run out. Pandey drove this in the direction of mid on, du Preez backed up looking for a single, Ashwin ran across, took the ball and threw down the stumps from around 5-6 yards away. Easy as they come 84/6
    14.6 and gone. This was a coming. Chips out, does not reach the pitch and the leading edge bubbles up into the covers 114/8
    16.2 it's all over. Vinay is out, and Steyn won't bat, so Bangalore are bowled out. Vinay walks out again, Ashwin lands it in the slot again, but not so full, so Vinay ends up dragging it leg side this time, and it lands in the hands of deep midwicket. 123/10
