run-out! Appanna makes room and scoops it down to deep point, risky second run but the throw from Rohit is accurate to Gilchrist and he whips off the bails, Tiffenn doesn't call for the third umpire
Another back to the wall performance from Deccan Chargers. Bangalore will be shell shocked at this because it was their match to lose. Dravid put them on course to another successful chase but he fell at the wrong time. Kallis slowed down for too long and out pressure on himself and the rest. Al they needed was for someone to support Uthappa but it wasn't good enough. Full credit to the way Ojha and Harmeet in particular bowled. RP too was effective, he got rid of Taylor, probably the best batsman at that stage to support Uthappa. Deccan move from seventh to fifth.
Stay with us for the presentation.
Kumble: "I thought 150 was gettable. We let them off the hook on a few occasions. Rahul gave us the initial impetus but it all fell apart after that."
Gilchrist: "I did feel that we could defend it, such a big ground, some of the Bangalore boys found out that what could have gone for six didn't go all the way. Ojha is the go-to man for a wicket."
Harmeet is the Man of the Match: "I'd like to thank my mom and dad who got me into cricket. I've been practicing the slower balls, back of the hand and under the fingers."
This was a great T20 game. Thanks for your company, goodnight!
timber! Harris fires a yorker on the off stump, the batsman makes room again and swings, the off stump is flattened
he sees the batsman making room and fires too wide outside off, no way anyone could have chased that
it's a full toss and he can only put it away to cover
fires it full and on the leg stump line, he fails to make contact and the ball nearly shaves the stump
slower ball just outside the off stump, Vinay swishes at thin air, top class over by Harmeet
Vinay leaves the ball probably thinking it would be a wide, nope it was perfectly legitimate
comes down the pitch and gets an inside edge down to short fine leg
Gilchrist goes back, bowls the slower ball and Kumble drives away from the body and misses
Harmeet Singh Bansal's on a hat-trick! Steyn goes right across his stumps and tries to sweep him, exposes all three stumps and the ball hits the back leg flush in front of the stumps, see you later!
could be the most important strike of the match! Harmeet bowls yet another leg cutter and Uthappa swishes hard and misses it completely, knocks the off stump
This is intense stuff guys! Who;s going to win this?? Harmeet now
good running from Vinay! He jams out a low full toss to long-off and he pushes for the second so that Uthappa will have strike
Dropped but he saved a boundary! Thick outside edge on the drive and Gilly flings himself to his right and gloves it down to third man
could this be the turning point! Harris bowls length again and Uthappa makes room and clubs it over wide long-on
that looked like a certain boundary but Symonds was awesome at deep cover, powerful front foot drive
a trifle wide outside off and the batsmen made room to drive, Russel Tiffen signals pretty late and Harris isnt happy with the call
now he bowls it fuller and he crashes it down to long-on, they put pressure on Sumanth and go for the second, Vinay times his dive well, third umpire takes a look
This is shaping to be a classic T20 game
this time he bowls it too short and is penalised
what a response! Harris bowls length to Uthappa and he makes room and slaps it high and far over the bowler's head
great keeping there! Vinay tries to smash it down the ground but gets an under edge and Gilchrist falls to his left and stops it
