2.2 the bowling change has worked. The flight has done the trick. Abdulla tosses it up generously from around the stumps, the ball drifts into middle as Uthappa looks to work it to the leg side, but ends up getting a leading edge back to the bowler who dives to his left to complete a one-handed catch. He's pumped! Big wicket that 14/1
    10.3 too much width and is lucky to get away with that, but the mix-up results in a bonus wicket for RCB. Pandey was more than halfway down the crease, when Gambhir looked towards his partner, in the end both of them were stranded at the same end as Abdulla collects Watson's throw to break the stumps at the non-striker's end. Pandey doesn't even bother looking at his captain who walks off shaking his head. They were lucky to get away couple of overs ago, not this time. 90/2
    13.4 the Pandey party is over as Arvind takes out his Karnataka teammate. Pandey makes room to go over the off side but Arvind does well to follow him and cramp him for room by bowling full on middle and leg. Pandey now looks to whip it over wide long-on but ends up hitting it a lot straighter than he wanted as AB de Villiers takes a simple catch 113/3
    14.1 turn, bounce and an appeal for stumping. Is it out? Yusuf has started walking. Coming back to the delivery, this one was generously tossed up outside off, Yusuf looks to slog that across the line over long-on and was through with the swing before the ball got to him, Rahul collects the ball and breaks the bails off even as Yusuf tries to stretch back. His backfoot was on the line when the LEDs started glowing. There was a bit of doubt in the third umpire's mind. He wanted to check if Rahul collected the ball in front of the stumps, but he was fine there 118/4
    not out
    15.2 lofted cleanly inside-out but he only ended up hitting it a little too well as Abdulla runs 20 yards or so to his left to take an excellent catch at long-off. Wonder if Surya looked to play a chip shot there. Doesn't matter, they're losing wickets in clumps and the squeeze is well and truly on 125/5
