Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Aakash Chopra, 2.1 ov), 2-20 (Brad Hodge, 3.3 ov), 3-46 (Sourav Ganguly, 7.3 ov), 4-64 (David Hussey, 8.6 ov), 5-80 (Tatenda Taibu, 11.2 ov), 6-88 (Laxmi Shukla, 11.5 ov), 7-122 (Murali Kartik, 15.4 ov)
2.1 to A Chopra, gone, that's a familiar Chopra dismissal, he moves across the stumps and tries to flick it towards the leg side, Steyn keeps it straight and that would have rattled middle and leg, Chopra has been out in that fashion earlier. And he has to go now too.. 9/1
11.2 to T Taibu, short of a length and Taibu isn't quick enough on the pull, top edge flies straight in the air and Boucher comes around to take an easy catch.. 80/5
11.5 to LR Shukla, short one, rising dangerously, Shukla tries to jab it down but can only manage an inside edge onto the stumps., Steyn continues to curse the skies, pacy stuff this. 88/6
3.3 to BJ Hodge, got 'em, these dismissals are becoming commonplace in this tournament, short and Hodge waits for the pull, swivels around to smash that hard but he can't keep it on the ground, flies towards square leg where the fielder doesn't have to move. Straight into the bread-basket that as Bangalore strike again. End of Hodge. 20/2
15.4 to M Kartik, driven back to the bowler, he takes it neat and claims the catch, then he realises they are going for a run and takes the bails off, either way it's out. Replays suggesting that it's probably caught and bowled. Saha doesn't get the strike now. 122/7

Fall of wickets: 1-17 (Shivnarine Chanderpaul, 3.3 ov), 2-32 (Jagadeesh Arunkumar, 4.5 ov), 3-51 (Rahul Dravid, 9.1 ov), 4-96 (Cameron White, 14.1 ov)
3.3 to S Chanderpaul, this time he's got him, full and shaping into the batsman, Shiv tries to go over the top but can only get a thick-ish inside edge, flies straight to mid-on and Kartik is waiting for this one, Ishant has struck, Eden erupts. 17/1
9.1 to R Dravid, and he's cleaned up up, too cute from Dravid and he misses the paddle-sweep, leg stump is out of the ground and Ganguly is like Greek hero in Olympia, running through the ground as if he's won the marathon, he's loving this wicket, Dravid looks back in anguish. The Ganguly v Dravid battle is over. And there's been only one winner.. 51/3
