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.

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

15.1
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!

1
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.

14.5
1
Akhil to Tendulkar, 1 run

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

14.4
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

14.3
1
Akhil to Uthappa, 1 run

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

14.2
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

14.1
4
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.

just outside off and forced to right of point where White makes a neat diving stop

13.6
1w
Steyn to Tendulkar, 1 wide

hurls across a bouncer but it's too high and Goswami gathers. AV Jayaprakash, standing in his last game - he is retiring after tonight- signals it a wide

13.5
Steyn to Tendulkar, no run

outside off stump line and Tendulkar lets it go through to the 'keeper

There is some problem with the return crease. the landing area basically and SRT helps out by banging his bat on the offending area

13.4
Steyn to Tendulkar, no run

lifting delivery outside off, SRT goes back and across, watches it jump up and lets it fly past him

13.3
1
Steyn to Uthappa, 1 run

short of length, cutting in and Robin gets a inside edge to a waft and it rolls over to square leg

13.2

Steyn to Uthappa, SIX runs

What a shot! Awesome strike. Not all that short, climbing outside off, he went back and across and punched it beautifully over backward point. He has been taking lessons from Jayasuriya

13.1
Steyn to Uthappa, no run

shout for lbw but hit too hight. It cut in off a length, angling in to middle and leg, Robin tries to dab it to the onside , misses
