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

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

Royal Challengers Bangalore 49/2   LRPL Taylor 35* (19b 6x4 1x6)   DT Christian 0.5-0-6-0

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   LRPL Taylor 39* (20b 7x4 1x6)   DT Christian 1-0-10-0

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

Royal Challengers Bangalore 61/3   LRPL Taylor 45* (23b 8x4 1x6)   DT Christian 1.3-0-16-0

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.

Royal Challengers Bangalore 99/5   D du Preez 17* (11b 1x4 1x6)   AW O'Brien 3.3-0-24-1

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.

Royal Challengers Bangalore 150/7   CL White 23* (26b 1x4)   SW Tait 3.3-0-21-2
