Sohail Tanvir401032.50180030
0.3 to J Arunkumar, caught! Bangalore make an awful start, Arunkumar tries to loft Tanvir down the ground but only succeeds in skying the ball high in the air towards mid-off where Trivedi takes the catch. 0/1
2.2 to V Kohli, bowled him! Kohli tries to cut a delivery that angles across him from over the wicket, he doesn't have the room and bottom edges the ball on to his stumps, Bangalore look listless. 5/3
18.4 to A Kumble, caught! Tanvir pitches the ball short of a length and gets it to lift sharply into Kumble who tries to run the ball to third man, but only manages a nick through to Rawat who takes an easy catch. 118/9
Munaf Patel402125.25123000
1.2 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Bangalore sink further! Misbah tries to pull Munaf but the length isn't short enough, the ball comes to him a bit too quickly and he mis-hits it straight to mid-on where the substitute Taruwar Kohli takes a sitter. 2/2
7.6 to CL White, woeful, woeful batting from Bangalore, White moves forward and across his stumps and plays a nothing shot, he merely chipped the ball with absolutely no power and it landed in Trivedi's hands at a deepish mid-on. 31/4
Shane Watson20603.0070010
Shane Warne402335.7592000
13.4 to DT Patil, caught! Patil tries to loft Warne out of the ground, the ball is quicker and flatter and he mis-hits it straight to Jadeja at long-on. 73/6
13.5 to P Kumar, and he goes first ball! He steps out of his crease and tries to clear long-off, he's hit it pretty well but not well enough, the ball goes high in the air and Kaif takes a well-judged catch a few feet inside the long-off boundary, Dravid watches helplessly from the other end. 73/7
15.2 to Z Khan, Warne's pulled off a stunner! Zaheer hammers the ball straight and hard right back at Warne, the ball flies low towards Warne's right, he bends down low and stretches out his right hand to take a one-handed catch inches off the ground, the ball was nearly past him when he took the catch, stunning, simply stunning, he is now the highest wicket-taker in the IPL. 83/8
Siddharth Trivedi2023111.5032110
10.2 to JH Kallis, caught! Kallis backs away towards leg to make room, Trivedi follows him with a short of a length ball, Kallis gets cramped for room while playing the pull and lofts it to Yusuf Pathan at deep midwicket, simple catch. 40/5
