17 September 2010 - day/night match (20-over match)

Christian to Dravid, 1 run, on a good length on middle, gives Taylor the strike with a single past midwicket


Christian to Taylor, no run, didn't pick the slower one, closed the face too early, it landed on middle and leg and he was aiming at square leg, got a leading edge but was fortunate it fell well in front of the bowler


Christian to Taylor, 1 wide, misdirected this time, slow and full but down the leg side


Christian to Taylor, no run, on target this time, full on middle, defends it with a full face back to the bowler


Christian to Taylor, no run, another one down the leg side, plenty of them tonight, bowled from wide of the crease but this time it brushes his pads


Christian to Taylor, FOUR, well struck and he had picked out his gap, lands on a length, gets forward and executes a perfect cover drive, there is a fielder in the deep, a deep cover, but he has no chance


Christian to Taylor, FOUR, and again, full, in the slot for Taylor and he plays a similar shot, strikes it much harder this time and gets the desired result

Royal Challengers Bangalore 53/2   DT Christian 1-0-10-0

Christian to Taylor, 1 run, angling in towards middle and leg, flicked away towards deep square leg for a single


Christian to White, 1 run, short on the off, rocks back and drops it in front of midwicket for a single


Christian to Taylor, FOUR, straying on the pads and Taylor has no trouble sending it to the boundary, fine leg is up and he just clips it past him for an easy four


Christian to Taylor, no run, slowish, on a good length just outside off, taps it towards point


Christian to Taylor, no run, fuller, bowled at 129 kmph outside off, square drives it towards point, can't pierce the field


Christian to Taylor, 1 run, slower one bowled on a length on the off, pushes it down towards long-on for a single

Royal Challengers Bangalore 62/3   DT Christian 2-0-17-0

Christian to du Preez, 1 run, fullish on off stump and it is blaster back at fearsome pace at the bowler. He did not catch it, but I am more surprised that he is not injured


Christian to White, no run, length ball on off, works it off the front foot into the covers


Christian to White, 1 run, slides down the leg, worked off the back foot for a single behind square leg


Christian to du Preez, 1 run, short, just outside off stump, carved off the backfoot in the air into the off side. Over the covers


Christian to White, 1 run, darts in from outside off and White eases it off the pads for one


Christian to du Preez, OUT, du Preez's frenetic innings has come to a characteristic end here. Not a great ball, very short and wide outside off, he queerly decided to pull instead of go through the off side. Hits low on the bat and gets the top edge, it goes straight up and settles in the grasp of the fielder at long on

D du Preez c Harris b Christian 46 (22m 25b 1x4 4x6) SR: 184.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 134/6   DT Christian 3-0-21-1

Christian to Vinay Kumar, OUT, Vinay's gone! Looks to make contact with the almighty heave over midwicket. He is looking towards fine leg when he makes contact, so can't really blame him for not timing it well enough, or placing it. Straight into deep square leg's lap when it lands. Borgas juggled but held.

R Vinay Kumar c Borgas b Christian 6 (6m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 85.71


Christian to White, 1 run, White this time, more in control than Vinay was, but can't connect well enough with the swing to deep midwicket. On the bounce to the fielder patrolling the fence


Christian to Steyn, OUT, Steyn's stumps are straightened! Backs away, looking to scythe Christian through the covers, but he misses and off stump is on a roll!

DW Steyn b Christian 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Christian to Kumble, 1 run, full on off stump, Kumble manages to drive it out to cover and get off the mark


Christian to White, OUT, White's up and down innings has ended in characteristic fashion. He has played a lot of shots, some of them have looked really good, but the timing has not always been so. Stays back in the crease again, converts the full ball into driving length and packs a punch with the lofted drive over mid off. But not timed well enough to clear long off. Simple catch. Bangalore all out for 154. Game on.

CL White c Putland b Christian 25 (56m 29b 1x4 0x6) SR: 86.20

Royal Challengers Bangalore 154/10   DT Christian 3.5-0-23-4
