Champions League Twenty20 - 1st semi final

Chennai Super Kings v Royal Challengers Bangalore

Chennai Super Kings won by 52 runs (D/L method)

1.1

Bollinger to Dravid, OUT, 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

R Dravid c Morkel b Bollinger 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 2/1   MK Pandey 2* (6b)   DE Bollinger 0.1-0-0-1

2.6

Morkel to Uthappa, OUT, 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

RV Uthappa c Vijay b Morkel 4 (7m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Royal Challengers Bangalore 7/2   MK Pandey 3* (10b)   JA Morkel 2-0-3-1

3.3

Bollinger to Taylor, OUT, 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

LRPL Taylor c Vijay b Bollinger 4 (3m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Royal Challengers Bangalore 12/3   MK Pandey 3* (10b)   DE Bollinger 1.3-0-9-2

7.3

Balaji to Kohli, OUT, 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.

V Kohli c Ashwin b Balaji 14 (17m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 116.66

Royal Challengers Bangalore 37/4   MK Pandey 12* (22b 1x4)   L Balaji 1.3-0-7-1

10.6

Muralitharan to White, OUT, gone. Another slog sweep, and it seeks out deep midwicket, where Srikkanth tumbles forward and takes it nicely

CL White c Anirudha b Muralitharan 13 (12m 10b 0x4 1x6) SR: 130.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 67/5   MK Pandey 27* (33b 2x4)   M Muralitharan 2-0-22-1

11.5

Ashwin to Pandey, OUT, 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

D du Preez run out 1 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 84/6   MK Pandey 38* (37b 3x4 1x6)   R Ashwin 2.5-0-26-0

13.6

Bollinger to Pandey, OUT, 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

MK Pandey b Bollinger 52 (55m 44b 4x4 2x6) SR: 118.18

Royal Challengers Bangalore 104/7   P Kumar 6* (6b 1x4)   DE Bollinger 3-0-27-3

14.6

Muralitharan to Kumar, OUT, and gone. This was a coming. Chips out, does not reach the pitch and the leading edge bubbles up into the covers

P Kumar c Morkel b Muralitharan 15 (11m 11b 1x4 1x6) SR: 136.36

Royal Challengers Bangalore 114/8   R Vinay Kumar 1* (1b)   M Muralitharan 4-0-38-2

16.2

Ashwin to Vinay Kumar, OUT, 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.

R Vinay Kumar c Anirudha b Ashwin 9 (9m 7b 0x4 1x6) SR: 128.57

Royal Challengers Bangalore 123/10   A Kumble 1* (2b)   R Ashwin 3.2-0-32-1
