TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.95, 79 Mins)179/5
Fall of wickets: 1-106 (Parthiv Patel, 10.1 ov), 2-106 (Matthew Hayden, 10.2 ov), 3-144 (MS Dhoni, 15.6 ov), 4-165 (Suresh Raina, 18.6 ov), 5-179 (Albie Morkel, 19.6 ov)
15.6 to MS Dhoni, finally Bangalore hold on to a catch. Samrt bowling by PK, Dhoni wants to go over long-on, PK has bowled a legcutter, and the thick outside edge takes it to Bishnoi at long-off, an absolute sitter. 144/3
18.6 to SK Raina, slower ball, from round the stumps, angling in, and Raina goes on side, lofted shot, and can't clear Kohli at long-on... the UP bowler has the last laugh in this mini UP battle, incidentally during a match being played between two plays from South India. 165/4
19.6 to JA Morkel, don't rile a fast man. This is full and fast and ferocious, Albie makes room, but his bat comes down after the ball has hit the off stump, an angry Steyn looks at the umpire, and gestures perhaps meaning to say, "That wasn't wide, was it?" or perhaps "So what, the wide didn't cost me much, the extra ball got me a wicket.". 179/5
10.1 to PA Patel, Will he ever? Strategy time-out has worked for Bangalore. KP bowls full and straight, and Parthiv slog-sweeps all over it, and Uthappa collects the off stumps. 106/1

TOTAL15.2 Ov (RR: 5.67, 71 Mins)87
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Praveen Kumar, 0.3 ov), 2-40 (Jacques Kallis, 5.2 ov), 3-47 (Ross Taylor, 6.5 ov), 4-49 (Kevin Pietersen, 7.3 ov), 5-50 (Robin Uthappa, 7.5 ov), 6-66 (Virat Kohli, 10.5 ov), 7-66 (Rajesh Bishnoi, 11.1 ov), 8-74 (Vinay Kumar, 12.4 ov), 9-78 (Dale Steyn, 13.3 ov), 10-87 (Rahul Dravid, 15.2 ov)
0.3 to P Kumar, full, straight, thank you PK, plays all over it, and Gony gets the leg stump. Smart bowling, two bouncers, followed by a full, slower delivery. 0 for 1 after three balls, and the opening experiment has failed for Bangalore. 0/1
12.4 to R Vinay Kumar, fulltoss, and what does Vinay kumar do? lobs it to Hayden at midwicket, and an easy catch despite the highly distractionous [not a word, but what the heck] orange cap. Bangalore sink in further. 74/8
15.2 to R Dravid, it's all over tonight for Bangalore. It was another leg-side half-volley, Dravid looks for a six over square leg, but picks Flintoff perfectly. 87/10
5.2 to JH Kallis, Kallis improvises too much for his own good, he walks across a long way, is beaten by a straight and full delivery, pitched outside off, will be touch and go whether it hit him in line. Yepp it hit him in line, and would have taken middle and leg. 40/2
6.5 to LRPL Taylor, and a frustrated Taylor plays a horrendous shot, the ball goes straight up, ending just to the right of the non-strikers' end, and Flintoff is ready there with his buckets. Superb pressure bowling, and he gets instant results. 47/3
7.3 to KP Pietersen, and he gets KP first ball for a golden duck, and KP is showing Simon Taufel the bat, this one pitched on off, and straightened up, hitting KP in line, with the bat very close to the ball. Pietersen is not a happy man. 49/4
7.5 to RV Uthappa, Murali you beauty! Flight, draws Uthappa out, dips, keeping it short of where Uthappa expected, and then turns it away, and beats the bat, and Dhoni completes a sharp stumping, Bangalore reeling. 50/5
11.1 to R Bishnoi, No. 3 for Murali, flighted, on pads, and Bishnoi, making his debut, gets stuck into it. Little problem, no real elevation, and the long-on is wide, so that it falls straight into his lap. 66/7
10.5 to V Kohli, and Jogi hits back, a touch slower, Kohli looks to loft iot, no foot movement, and it goes miles in the air, towards extra cover, Badri and Raina converge, the calling seems clear as only Badri goes for it and holds on. 66/6
