    6.1 Gillespie-Waugh all over again? Klinger clings onto this steepler, but he has injured himself by colliding with Cooper. Gayle clears the front leg and pulls, the length is not quite there, and it skids too. The top edge skies towards long-off. Klinger is running back, Cooper running in. No calling, or maybe they couldn't hear each other because of the crowd. Klinger doesn't let the ball out even as they collide, but he is holding onto his leg. It's Cooper's knee that has got Klinger in the thigh. He has limped off the field 65/1

    18.2 what a gem, what a comeback, Chinnaswamy Stadium has gone deathly quiet. This is what they held Tait back for. He bowls a late inswinging yorker that takes the middle stump out. It swings in enough to beat the bat, which seemed to have the yorker covered. Dilshan walks back dejected 199/5
    14.6 Tait finally gets his man. This is not as well bowled as he earlier did to have Dilshan plumb but Tait will take it. It's a half-volley outside off, but Kohli has drilled it straight down long-on's throat. Kohli can't bear to look at the world as he walks back. Shields his eyes with his bat. What an innings he has played, though 165/2
    16.6 The short ball does it. This is short outside off, angling further away. Tiwary goes for the pull, toe-ends it to mid-on. The game is still on 183/3
    17.3 this is a superb comeback from O'Brien. He didn't fire this in. He didn't go leg side. He flighted this even higher, a touch wider. Agarwal tried to go over cover again. Early into the shot. Sliced to point. This is riveting stuff 190/4
    18.4 Has Tait won South Australia the match? The trouble with Vettori, decent lower-order batsman, is that he has just one trick against the quick bowler. Shuffle across and go fine. Twice in a row Tait has bowled wide outside off to him. This time Vettori tries to clear fine leg nonetheless, but manages just a leading edge. Caught at short fine 200/6
    18.5 An extraordinary five-for for Tait. They kept back his three overs among the last six. They kept all their eggs in the often fragile Tait basket, but he has taken five in his last three. This time he is full and straight. Bhatkal misses. The middle stump is out of the ground 200/7
