View dismissal MEK Hussey c Steyn b Vinay Kumar 6 16 12 0 0 50.00
3.5 Hussey is gone. Steyn has taken a screamer, running back from mid off, but he seems to have banged his head on the turf as he fell backwards, pouching it behind him. The plan was clear, Chennai needed to make the most of the remaining Powerplay overs, Hussey looked to loft a back of length ball outside off, over long off, but it hit low on the bat and went higher than he would have wanted. Steyn back-pedalled furiously from mid off and took it well, but he is down on the ground. That must have hurt bad. He has gone off the field. 19/1
View dismissal M Vijay c Kohli b Vinay Kumar 41 55 32 4 1 128.12
11.5 at long last, Bangalore have taken a catch. Without sustaining an injury. Vijay has not had much of the strike recently, and was setting himself up for another pull-swing over the leg side. This was too short for that shot, and duly took the top edge. Straight up, and a calm Kohli runs across and takes it non-chalantly 100/2

View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b du Preez 11 11 10 2 0 110.00
13.6 and gone. Dhoni has played a hundred shots while he was out there for 11 off 10. He played another slog pull here, it was fuller than that and sneaked through to crash into the stumps. 133/3
View dismissal JA Morkel c Kohli b White 5 13 3 1 0 166.66
16.4 Morkel is gone, but things are just getting worse for Bangalore. Short and asking to be hit on leg stump, Morkel goes for the pull, top edge takes it ballooning down to deep midwicket. Kohli runs in and tumbles forward as he takes the catch.. and in the process hurts his already dodgy back, which was stopping him from bowling 170/4

  Royal Challengers Bangalore innings (target: 176 runs from 17 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MK Pandey b Bollinger 52 55 44 4 2 118.18
13.6 gone. 132 kph, not too fast, low full toss coming in towards middle and leg. And Bangalore's best batsman for the day cannot make contact. He misses and the stumps are rearranged 104/7
View dismissal R Dravid c Morkel b Bollinger 0 4 1 0 0 0.00
1.1 well, no fastest fifty or anything today. Dravid has gone first ball. Bollinger lands it back of a length outside off, Dravid was setting himself up for a drive and went through with it without any conviction. Pops up and lands in front of mid off, Albie tumbles forward, does not injure himself and pouches it easily 2/1
View dismissal RV Uthappa c Vijay b Morkel 4 7 7 1 0 57.14
2.6 there was an air of inevitability about this. Uthappa perishes as Bangalore search for the boundaries against some unplayable bowling. Back of a length, and a hint of away movement again. Uthappa moved forward, he reckoned straight bat was the way to go, but it was not full enough, so he ended up looking to work it without getting to the pitch. Big loopy top edge, straight up and Vijay takes an easy catch in the covers 7/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Vijay b Bollinger 4 3 3 1 0 133.33
3.3 another one bites the dust. Sharp bouncer from Bollinger, clearly caught Taylor by surprise, he was not on the backfoot and went for the pull out of nowehere. Straight up, straight down, and Vijay is under it once again 12/3
View dismissal V Kohli c Ashwin b Balaji 14 17 12 1 0 116.66
7.3 folks, this is just not Bangalore's day and it is geting worse by the moment. Kohli looks to flick from leg stump, it comes on slowly and he is early into the shot. It lobs up towards midwicket, but surely Ashwin running in from the boundary did not look like he was going to take it. Well, he did - a couple of big steps towards the end and a tumble forward. Kohli is gone. 37/4
View dismissal CL White c Anirudha b Muralitharan 13 12 10 0 1 130.00
10.6 gone. Another slog sweep, and it seeks out deep midwicket, where Srikkanth tumbles forward and takes it nicely 67/5
View dismissal D du Preez run out (Ashwin) 1 3 1 0 0 100.00
11.5 Ashwin to Pandey, I spoke too soon. du Preez is gone run out. Pandey drove this in the direction of mid on, du Preez backed up looking for a single, Ashwin ran across, took the ball and threw down the stumps from around 5-6 yards away. Easy as they come 84/6
View dismissal P Kumar c Morkel b Muralitharan 15 11 11 1 1 136.36
14.6 and gone. This was a coming. Chips out, does not reach the pitch and the leading edge bubbles up into the covers 114/8
View dismissal R Vinay Kumar c Anirudha b Ashwin 9 9 7 0 1 128.57
16.2 it's all over. Vinay is out, and Steyn won't bat, so Bangalore are bowled out. Vinay walks out again, Ashwin lands it in the slot again, but not so full, so Vinay ends up dragging it leg side this time, and it lands in the hands of deep midwicket. 123/10
