0.2

Tait to Pandey, 1 leg bye, effort ball again, short on middle and leg, fends it down into the leg side for a quick single, came off the thigh

0.3

Tait to Dravid, 1 run, almost identical delivery, nips back in a hint and catches Dravid on the thigh, another single

0.4

Tait to Pandey, no run, a bit of swing there, just a hint, lands on a good length on middle, pushes it towards mid-on

0.5

Tait to Pandey, FOUR, full on middle, Pandey drives at it through the line and connects well, beautifully timed and it beats mid-on to the ropes

0.6

Tait to Pandey, OUT, hurries it outside off, too quick for Pandey who is late to latch onto it, tries to drag it over midwicket, gets the top edge, excellent judgement from the slip fielder, Harris it was, who ran back immediately after the ball made impact with the bat, kept his eyes on it throughout and clasped it comfortably with a third man running in towards him

MK Pandey c Harris b Tait 4 (3m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 6/1   SW Tait 1-0-5-1

2.1

Tait to Taylor, no run, short and Taylor is tempted into chasing it, slashes hard but can't connect

2.2

Tait to Taylor, no run, full outside off and, goes for the drive but mistimes it towards point

2.3

Tait to Taylor, 1 run, short of a good length on middle, turns the face and works it towards fine leg for a single

2.4

Tait to Dravid, no run, bangs it short outside off, flies through to the wicketkeeper as Dravid lets it go

2.5

Tait to Dravid, no run, full toss, was aiming for the yorker, Dravid, though, was not quick enough to react, tried to flick it through midwicket, got an inside edge onto the pads

2.6

Tait to Dravid, no run, short of a good length on the off, rocks back and plays it down towards extra cover

Royal Challengers Bangalore 19/2   SW Tait 2-0-6-1

8.1

Tait to Taylor, 5 wides, effort delivery, was aiming for the bouncer but it missed everything, was down the leg side and Taylor didn't even duck, too high for Manou and it races to the fine-leg boundary

8.1

Tait to Taylor, 1 leg bye, bowls it on a good length on leg stump, a touch too quick for Taylor who tries to dab it into the leg side, clips the pads

8.2

Tait to White, no run, full on the off from wide of the crease, defended with utmost respect from Cameron White

8.3

Tait to White, 1 run, short of a length on middle, gets on the back foot and turns it wide of midwicket for a single

8.4

Tait to Taylor, OUT, the bowling change works, Taylor's in the mood to score runs, went after a delivery that wasn't too wide for the cut, nor too short, got a thick edge straight to Manou who took it with ease, South Australia have struck back to upset the counterattack, perhaps a touch too quick for Taylor there

LRPL Taylor c †Manou b Tait 46 (33m 28b 8x4 1x6) SR: 164.28

8.5

Tait to Kohli, 1 wide, down the leg side, tries to glance it fine, called a wide

8.5

Tait to Kohli, no run, jumped off the pitch, short outside off and Kohli gets out of the way

8.6

Tait to Kohli, 1 run, bowls on a good length outside off, pushes it wide of mid-off for a single

Royal Challengers Bangalore 71/4   SW Tait 3-0-14-2

18.1

Tait to Vinay Kumar, 2 runs, what an effort! Back of a length outside off and Vinay backs off to try and loft it over the off side. He doesn't time it too well, spoons it in the air, seemingly just over mid off's head. But the fielder running back and diving away nearly pulled it off!

18.2

Tait to Vinay Kumar, 1 run, full but wide outside off and Vinay gets a single down to deep point. Right, Tait to White.

18.3

Tait to White, FOUR, What. A. Shot. Tries the yorker, misses the mark by a few inches. White is waiting. Stays in the crease, backs away a foot and drills it in the air, straight over Tait's head.

18.4

Tait to White, 1 run, errs on the full side this time, full toss on off stump and White gets it away between point and cover for one

18.5

Tait to Vinay Kumar, no run, a thunderbolt from the Tait book of gravity-defying bouncers. Vinay misses it by a mile as it bounces, takes off and soars well over his head.

18.6

Tait to Vinay Kumar, 1 run, Vinay backs away this time, it is not a bouncer, but is short. He connects with a fore hand crosscourt, but not much timing, down to long on.

Royal Challengers Bangalore 152/7   SW Tait 4-0-23-2
