Champions League Twenty20 - 5th match, Group B

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Guyana

Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 9 wickets (with 46 balls remaining)

Here we go. Travis Dowlin takes strike. Praveen Kumar will bowl. Two slips in place

5.27pm Michael Hamid: "T&T lost, lets move on... I skipped church to support my home country Guyana.. Do forgive me Lord..." We are to start shortly

5.20pm Niala Baboolal, in a reassuring show of regional solidarity, writes in: "I am Trinidadian and I am supporting Bangalore because Guyana eliminated us from qualifying here. I throwing my money behind Cameron White to do something spectacular. He is one of my favourite players." That's called neighbourly love

5.10pm For the second time in two years, Sriram Veera is being a nuisance to the South Africans. This time he is accusing his flight steward of being a pilot and a steward at the same time. In South Africa, Sriram Veera will always be remembered as the man who found the culture of smiling at and saying hello to perfect strangers evil. I am surprised they let him in the country this year. Moving on to pleasanter issues, do read Ranjith Fernando's Five Firsts

Nayan Doshi, the left-arm spinner, son of former India SLA, Dilip, is a surprise inclusion ahead of R Vinay Kumar. B Akhil is in too.

5pm Bangalore have won the toss and have put Guyana in. Anil Kumble feels these short boundaries will be difficult to defend. Their four overseas players are Kallis, Taylor, Steyn and White. Guyana would have fielded too. Sarwan seems to have forgotten, though, that they are batting first. "If we can restrict them to 150-160, it will be good," he says.

4.50pm Time for Game Five. Live. It's early-ish on a Sunday morning in Guyana, and late-ish on Sunday night in Bangalore. And some 10 minutes to go to toss. Promises to be a mismatch on paper, but Champions League has a way of its own

Guyana are surprised entrants here, winning a last-over thriller against Barbados in the Caribbean T20 final. They have a hard act to follow, after T&T warmed hearts last year and made it as far as the final. Their captain Ramnaresh Sarwan says Jonathan Foo is capable of doing a Pollard, and Peter Della Penna, our writer in America, says Lennox Cush is a vital cog. That said, Guyana are up against a formidable opposition, Royal Challengers Bangalore, who have the added advantage of a South African coach - Ray Jennings - and two South African players - Dale Steyn and Jacques Kallis - in their squad

0.1

Kumar to Dowlin, no run, starts with a short ball, into the ribs, defended

Kumar Ramnarine: "Nialla, I feel your pain, but Guyana won so get over it...........Go Guyana make all of the West Indes proud!!!! One People, One nation, One Destiny.........."

1.4

Steyn to Dowlin, no run, superb delivery, swinging away, not too much, but enough to beat the edge. wasn't driving length too

2.2

Kumar to Dowlin, 1 run, swinging in, tapped to square leg for one

2.4

Kumar to Chattergoon, 1 run, steered past slip, well controlled

Nialla again: 'It is too difficult to get over such a small defeat that we watched at home in the Queen's Park Oval. I swear, the nation of T&T was in mourning that dreadful night. Back home here I think everyone wants Mumbai Indians to win the tournament because they have two Trinis on their side, Bravo and KP"

2.5

Kumar to Dowlin, 1 run, another open-face shot, gets a single to third man

Guyana get support from unexpected quarters. "Guyana is representing South America in Cricket too. So, being a Brazilian, I'm cheering for them," says Bonizzoni. So sweet

3.1

Steyn to Dowlin, no run, back of a length, swinging away, gets squared up as he defends

just the one slip in now

3.2

Steyn to Dowlin, no run, that's a bit like Srinath. Charges down and swings. His head is looking skywards, his bat swinging feet away from the line of the ball

Gaurav: "I was just cricinfoing NAYAN DOSHI's profile..... His nationality is shown there as English....... How come he is a domestic player for RCB??" I like that by now more people are using cricinfo as a verb. Re Doshi, I think he has qualified as an Indian

S Chattergoon    6* (8b)      P Kumar    2-0-6-0

4.1

Kumar to Dowlin, OUT, wicket No. 1! Dowlin swings without really watching. His shimmy down the wicket is followed by a shortish delivery from PK. Dowlin goes ahead with the pull nonetheless, and gloves it to short fine leg where Steyn picks it late but holds onto it

TM Dowlin c Steyn b Kumar 10 (17m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.82

Sarwan is the new man in

4.2

Kumar to Sarwan, 1 run, and he drops this to the right of cover and runs

4.4

Kumar to Chattergoon, FOUR, and more good hitting, this time PK overpitches, and he gets under it, and lofts him over mid-off

4.5

Kumar to Chattergoon, no run, hits the in-between length, and Chatergoon stays back to push this to cover

4.6

Kumar to Chattergoon, 1 run, Rahul Dravid! He has put down a dolly! This is a slower ball that Chatergoon skies towards square leg, where Dravid is settled, waiting, waiting... waiting... and suddenly it hits hands and pops out. Went the Australian way and his hands came in front of his eyes

End of over 5 (10 runs) Guyana 27/1 (RR: 5.40)
S Chattergoon    15* (12b 2x4)      P Kumar    3-0-16-1

Kallis to bowl now

5.1

Kallis to Chattergoon, 1 run, full and wide, hit to third man for one

5.3

Kallis to Sarwan, OUT, Jacques gets his own back! The off stump has gone jogging! Smart offcutter here, Sarwan stays inside the line to look and cut, but it comes back in sharply and beats him

RR Sarwan b Kallis 7 (6m 3b 0x4 1x6) SR: 233.33

While Sid Monga grabs his dinner, this is Nitin Sundar taking over commentary duties. Guyana wobbling here.

5.4

Kallis to Deonarine, no run, length ball angling across from middle to off and tucked away off the pads to midwicket. Deonarine thought of a single and wisely changed his mind

5.5

Kallis to Deonarine, no run, back of a length on off stump, defended without really coming forward to the off side

5.6

Kallis to Deonarine, FOUR, Kallis errs in length, this one strays on to the pads and Deonarine smartly deflects it along, fine enough to beat short fine leg and through to the boundary

End of over 6 (11 runs) Guyana 38/2 (RR: 6.33)
N Deonarine    4* (3b 1x4)      JH Kallis    1-0-11-1
S Chattergoon    16* (13b 2x4)      P Kumar    3-0-16-1

Tony has this to say: "Go Guyana,only Guyana can elicit sooo much response.We're the only country that adores test match cricket!!!" Not sure how he came to that conclusion. Kumble brings himself on. Slip in.

6.1

Kumble to Chattergoon, no run, straighter one from middle, carrying on to off stump, defended off the backfoot

6.2

Kumble to Chattergoon, 1 run, full outside off and swept on the full behind square for a single

6.5

Kumble to Deonarine, 1 run, tossed up on middle and off, worked away off the pads to long on for a single. Five singles so far this over.

6.6

Kumble to Chattergoon, no run, and a dot to finish. Jumbo delivers the legspinner on leg stump and the batsman misses the sweep. Muted appeal turned down.

End of over 7 (4 runs) Guyana 42/2 (RR: 6.00)
S Chattergoon    18* (17b 2x4)      A Kumble    1-0-4-0
N Deonarine    6* (5b 1x4)      JH Kallis    1-0-11-1

SirHC clarifies: "In response to Guarav's comments, Nayan Doshi naturalized last year to become an indian citizen. In fact, in the IPL this year he played in the local category."

7.1

Kallis to Deonarine, OUT, Chattergoon is gone run out! It was bowled fuller outside off and Deonarine tapped it to Cameron White in the covers and set off for a naughty single. Poor Chattergoon paid the price for responding - at least a metre short of his ground as White threw down the stumps at the striker's end.

S Chattergoon run out 18 (31m 17b 2x4 0x6) SR: 105.88

7.2

Kallis to Barnwell, no run, back of a length outside off and defended by Barnwell into the off side

7.3

Kallis to Barnwell, no run, another inducker from Kallis, Barnwell gets behind the line and defends to the off side

7.4

Kallis to Barnwell, no run, and again, comes in with a sharp angle and Barnwell does well to read the line and keep it out to the off side

7.5

Kallis to Barnwell, 1 run, this time it darts too far down the leg and Barnwell gets inside the line to glance it to deep fine leg.

Apologies for the typo earlier! I meant White and pressed S by mistake instead of W!

7.6

Kallis to Deonarine, 1 run, driven out to long off to pick a single and retain strike

End of over 8 (2 runs) Guyana 44/3 (RR: 5.50)
N Deonarine    7* (7b 1x4)      JH Kallis    2-0-13-1
CD Barnwell    1* (4b)      A Kumble    1-0-4-0

Doshi comes on to bowl left-arm spin.

8.1

Doshi to Deonarine, 1 run, whoa, not a very good ball to start, loops the left arm spin at waist height and it is pull-swept to square leg for a single

8.2

Doshi to Barnwell, no run, better ball, flighted outside off and he opens the face to run it behind point

8.3

Doshi to Barnwell, 1 run, tossed up on middle and off, defends it off the inside edge to the leg side

8.4

Doshi to Deonarine, 1 run, tapped away off the backfoot to the leg side for a single.

Doshi to Barnwell, FOUR, flighted and Barnwell takes the challenge, tees off with the spin over long off, one bounce and into the boundary. Good positive shot.

8.6

Doshi to Barnwell, no run, good ball to finish, just back of driving length and patted with open face to the right of point.

Right, Sid Monga has finished his meal in record time and is back on now.

End of over 9 (7 runs) Guyana 51/3 (RR: 5.66)
CD Barnwell    6* (8b 1x4)      ND Doshi    1-0-7-0
N Deonarine    9* (9b 1x4)      JH Kallis    2-0-13-1

13.1

Doshi to RT Crandon, 2 runs, slogged over midwicket, not great connection but gets two

RT Crandon c Steyn b Doshi 5 (8m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

13.6

Doshi to Barnwell, 1 run, the next bowler will have to wait too as Barnwell takes a single off the last ball, retaining strike

Naitram: "Kumble should try the googly against the chinaman Foo." I knew this was a-coming

Zhi Li: "Can we not have derogatory use of Chinaman? It's the 21st century, its like me use the n word to discribe African-Americans..." Apologies chief. No hurt was intended. It's just that chinaman is now a recognised type of delivery in cricket lexicon

18.2

Kumar to Cush, 1 wide, bouncer, too short, too high

Dhaval: "@ Gaurav People call IPL team as Team of Mercenaries after one loss & people like you consider them the Best even before one inning is over haha. Any ways, IPL teams are nothing without their International players. In other words, Local / unknown faces in other teams are much more talented than in IPL."

Steyn to Barnwell, FOUR, another boundary, this one will bring the hundred up! This stays low and slow, and he has swatted it down the ground. And along the ground too. Beating long-on on his left

Steyn to Barnwell, 1 run, makes room and hits, gets a single to long-on

Steyn to EA Crandon, 1 wide, OUT, slower-ball wide down the leg side, they look to steal a bye too, but Uthappa hits the stumps direct and the No. 11 will need to walk out

EA Crandon run out 0 (7m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Steyn to Barnwell, OUT, Guyana are bowled out! Makes room again and all he manages is an edge through to Uthappa here. Steyn saw his back away, and bowled full and wide. He stretched to make contact, and edged

CD Barnwell c †Uthappa b Steyn 30 (54m 35b 2x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Ruthless performance from Bangalore, who are looking strong and not rusty at all. Guyana, it will be fair to say, seemed out of their depth. This wicket has no demons, the boundaries are small, and Guyana struggled to get to 100. Do join us for the chase. Bangalore will be looking for a smashing net-run-rate gain

End of over 20 (9 runs) Guyana 103/10
     DW Steyn    4-0-23-1
