    1.2 needless run-out, RCB have been handed the first wicket on a platter, Kanwar did not move, he was watching the ball as Blizzard smashed a full delivery through Nannes, mid off got to it and he only had to lob the ball to the keeper, the batsmen were at the same end 10/1
    3.6 Nannes has gone through Kanwar with a 148 kph full delivery, the pace has been there for him all along, but the line hasn't been, this time it is spot-on and Kanwar is beaten for pace as he has a swing at it, two of the three stumps are disturbed rudely 24/2
    9.2 Rayudu is gone, he made room outside leg looking for the carve over extra cover but Gayle was on the edge of the circle, deep enough and tall enough to take the ball as it screamed high towards him 65/3
    14.2 another run out, the third of the innings, another well-set batsman gone, MI bringing back RCB again, Pollard had flicked wide of deep midwicket, and they were late in deciding to go for the second, the throw was largely on target at the non-striker's end, and Franklin was miles out 108/5
    13.5 appeal for a run out, and Vettori has done well to get Yadav, Franklin had pushed this one back to VEttori, Yadav had backed up too much and Vettori got down to pick up the ball, turned around and lobbed it on to the stumps, catching Yadav short, he was batting well, crucial strike for RCB 105/4
    15.1 and now even the chance of regaining it has gone, Pollard has tried to loft Vettori straight down the ground, he has found long off with precision, did not get hold of the shot at all 109/6
    18.3 Sathish holes out off the slower one, tried to reach out and go over the bowler, mishit it to Agarwal at long on 135/8
    15.3 Dharmasena has no doubt about this one, hit full on the pads in front, and he raises the finger immediately, Harbhajan's misery was short, he played all around this full toss angled in, replays show that the ball would have missed leg with the angle 109/7
    18.4 Malinga is gone this time though, he came down the track looking to go over long off, but it was bowled wider and he sliced it to short third man 135/9

    4.1 Malinga has got his Sri Lanka captain, strange shot selection from Dilshan, probably the confidence was flowing by now, he tried to swing a full delivery across the line on the leg side, missed, the line was right on off stump, which was uprooted 38/1
    5.6 Harbhajan Singh has got the big one! he has done this so many times in Tests, round the stumps to the left-hander, flighted close to off, he pushes forward playing for all that the turn, it holds its line and hits him on the pad, was that outside the line, Harbhajan appeals and appeals and eventually gets it in his favour, replays show that struck him in front of off, but about a mile down the crease as Gayle stretched a long way forward, ball tracker shows it clipping off 42/2
    11.5 this could be it for RCB, Kohli has slog-swept and found deep midwicket, tried to fetch it from off, but could not get under it enough, it flew flat to the man in the deep, Bhajji roars 73/4
    10.3 Pollard has taken the catch finally, he juggled it about thrice, Agarwal has meekly lofted straight to him at long off, could not get anything on the shot apart from the exact distance to long off 67/3
    17.3 Tiwary's struggle has ended in a futile flail to Bhajji at extra cover, there was no timing to be found, he tried to muscle this length ball out of sight, got half the required distance 98/8
    12.5 another one goes, Pollard could take two at a time with those hands, he runs in from long off and easily gobbles a mistimed loft from Karthik off a tossed up ball, they are trying to hit themselves out of pressure and falling apart 74/5
    15.1 Pollard bellows with excitement, Kaif has gone now, he had to do something, had a swing at a slow - the new gold standard - delivery and sliced it to cover 81/6
    16.2 Rayudu collects the ball cleanly for once and ends Vettori's tournament with a quick stumping, Vettori left the crease expecting to somehow connect with the swipe, it turned away from him and Rayudu did not mess it up 92/7
    19.2 that is it, Mumbai Indians have won the Champions League 2011, he has gone high in the air with the swipe and Sathish has taken a fine catch at long on 108/10
    18.5 well, full marks for effort, he had to try something, he made room and went for the reverse paddle to a full delivery on off stump, missed and Malinga has another bowled dismissal to add to the bank 108/9
