Bangalore end as they started: with a loss at the home ground. Mumbai go home with a win. And I believe there is a big Kingfisher party tonight for both teams. So everybody is happy. Source? Lekha Washington, the presenter with the television channel beaming the pictures. She is never wrong. On that note, good bye and good luck

Kumble to Tendulkar, FOUR runs

another sweep - that vertical sweep from the little master and it's all over. The teams shakes hands as they walk back to the pavilion.

Kumble to Tendulkar, FOUR runs

from round the stumps and Tendulkar sweeps fine to the boundary

Kumble to Tendulkar, no run
Kumble to Tendulkar, no run

short delivery and pulled to square leg region.

Kumble to Uthappa, 1 run

slower, fuller and Uthappa eases it to mid-on and rushes across for a quick single

Kumble to Uthappa, no run

short of length, outside off, cut to right of the diving white at point

Kumble to bowl. He marks his run up, has a chat with Dravid. Perhaps, about where they are going to party tonight, perhaps about this over. Who knows!

Akhil to Uthappa, 1 run

Uthappa must have faced Akhil lots of time in the Karnataka nets. He leans forward to whip a length delivery to left of deep midwicket, wants a second, Tendulkar says you remain on strike.

Akhil to Tendulkar, 1 run

similar line and this time Tendulkar twists his body and wrists it to fine leg

Akhil to Tendulkar, no run

cuts it back into Tendulkar who tries to work it to square leg, misses and it runs off the pad to the off side

Akhil to Uthappa, 1 run

leans forward, towards the line of a length delivery and places it to left of mid-off

Akhil to Uthappa, no run

fullish, on the middle stump line, keeps a tad low - at least that's the impression Uthappa gives as he crouches slightly- and pushes it to mid-on

Akhil to Uthappa, FOUR runs

Nice. Easy. No risks. On a length, outside off stump, Uthappa opens his bat face and steers it to third man boundary.
