O'Brien to Taylor, 1 wide, ooh, given a wide but that wasn't far from leg stump, pushed it quick and Taylor, trying to whip it past square leg, could not get his bat to it


O'Brien to Taylor, 1 wide, and again, quick outside leg stump, tries to work it fine this time, same result


O'Brien to Taylor, FOUR, short of a length outside off, turns away just a hint and Taylor chops it down past point, it's a quick outfield, four more

Royal Challengers Bangalore 31/2   AW O'Brien 1-0-12-0

O'Brien to Dravid, no run


O'Brien to Dravid, OUT, Dravid hasn't really had much strike this innings, O'Brien held this back just a hint, slightly short on middle and leg and Dravid tried to paddle it fine, missed it, it lobbed off something and Manou took it comfortably, we need to see if he gloved that, the umpire certainly thought so, replays show it caught him high on the pad and then ricocheted off his arm to the keeper

R Dravid c †Manou b O'Brien 4 (29m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.36


O'Brien to White, no run, bowls it on a good length on the off, pushes it on the off side


O'Brien to White, no run


O'Brien to White, 1 run, paddle again, but he plays it well, single behind square


O'Brien to Taylor, 1 run, shortish outside off, dabbed into the off side wide of cover for a single

Royal Challengers Bangalore 55/3   AW O'Brien 2-0-14-1

O'Brien to White, no run, tossed up on middle and leg, turning away and worked to the leg side


O'Brien to White, 1 run, short and wide this time, turns away and it is cut. Not fully capitalised on, that gift of a delivery


O'Brien to du Preez, 1 run, whoa, tosses it up on off, draws the batsman out and he looks to work it against the spin to the leg side, gets a leading edge which bobbles menacingly close to extra cover


O'Brien to White, 1 run, White is more at ease, stays in the crease and works it down the ground for one


O'Brien to du Preez, no run, extra bounce, caught du Preez by surprise as he reached out to defend. Takes his top hand off like he suddenly realised the rope in his hand was a snake.


O'Brien to du Preez, 1 run, drifts on to middle and leg, du Preez drives down to long on for one

Royal Challengers Bangalore 80/5   AW O'Brien 3-0-18-1

O'Brien to du Preez, no run, beauty from O'Brien! That drew the batsman out and spun away just enough to take the outside edge.. only that du Preez was playing well inside the line and escaped


O'Brien to du Preez, 2 runs, good one again, has du Preez in trouble with a full pitched ball and the sweep gets an under edge that goes agonisingly close to the stumps


O'Brien to du Preez, FOUR, You will not see a better piece of fielding on the ropes.. Ever! This is what happened - du Preez went for the slog sweep again, latched on to it well, but it went high rather than far. Harris is the man at widish long on, he runs back, dives away and is fully horizontal when he collects the ball mid-air. The momentum takes him sliding towards the ropes and he lets the ball go. The fielder tagging him fired it back to the bowler's end where there was a run-out.. If only the ball was live.. Unfortunately, he has touched the ropes, has Harris, before letting go of the ball! Called a four, but hang on, should it not be a six? Harsha Bhogle makes a valid point on air.


O'Brien to du Preez, 1 run, sanity prevails, something we see more often on a cricket ground. Taps it down to long on for a single


O'Brien to White, 1 run


O'Brien to du Preez, 2 runs, du Preez picks a couple to covers to end the over

Royal Challengers Bangalore 103/5   AW O'Brien 4-0-28-1
