TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.40)168/9
Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Robin Uthappa, 1.1 ov), 2-48 (Jesse Ryder, 5.2 ov), 3-48 (Kevin Pietersen, 5.4 ov), 4-73 (Rahul Dravid, 10.3 ov), 5-134 (Jacques Kallis, 16.3 ov), 6-142 (Virat Kohli, 17.4 ov), 7-159 (Ross Taylor, 18.4 ov), 8-162 (Praveen Kumar, 19.1 ov), 9-162 (Pankaj Singh, 19.2 ov)
1.1 to RV Uthappa, he chases a really wide delivery and Pathan gets away with a loosener, so full and wide outside off and Uthappa succumbs to temptation, the ball catches the top edge of the bat and heads to Yuvraj who cups it at first slip. 6/1
19.1 to P Kumar, Praveen takes the risk of blocking all three stumps and that made him a candidate for an lbw, Pathan bowls from over the wicket and slants it towards the leg stump, Praveen moves to the off stump and exposes the leg stump. 162/8
19.2 to Pankaj Singh, the legstump goes for an evening walk! He delivers a slanting yorker from over the wicket and Pankaj swings and misses and his leg stump takes a tumble. 162/9
5.2 to JD Ryder, that's a huge sigh of relief for Punjab! Ryder fails to pick the slower offcutter and swings across the line and misses it completely, the stumps are erect but the bails fly in different directions. 48/2
5.4 to KP Pietersen, that's a very tame dismissal and Abdulla is the toast of Kingsmead! Pietersen hangs his bat out at a delivery moving away from him and decides to check his shot, Goel takes an easy catch at short cover Pietersen could have left that ball instead of reaching out to that slower ball. 48/3
16.3 to JH Kallis, bowls the short ball and takes a lot of pace off it, that traps Kallis who goes for the pull but doesn't get the timing or the distance to clear the rope, Jayawardene takes it at deep square-leg. 134/5
18.4 to LRPL Taylor, gets across his stumps to a pitched up delivery and flicks it, he gets a lot of elevation and Jayawardene takes it easily at deep square leg. 159/7
10.3 to R Dravid, trouble for Bangalore as Dravid departs! He chips down the track to go downtown but fails to get to the pitch of the ball, the ball swirls in the air for a while and VRV Singh sprints from long-on to his left and takes it comfortably, Chawla deserves credit for cutting back on the pace and giving it more flight. 73/4
17.4 to V Kohli, hits the deck hard on a good length and Kohli tries to smack him over the on side but mistimes the shot and Bopara takes a sitter at short midwicket. 142/6

Fall of wickets: 1-52 (Karan Goel, 6.4 ov), 2-92 (Kumar Sangakkara, 12.3 ov), 3-158 (Ravi Bopara, 18.1 ov)
18.1 to RS Bopara, Kallis bowls the slower one and it's a rare blip in concentration from Bopara who fails to read it early and gets a top edge as he tries to slog, Ryder runs forward and takes it at midwicket sliding forward. 158/3
12.3 to KC Sangakkara, Sangakkara tries to loft him downtown but fails to get the desired elevation, he gets on his knee and tries to scoop it over long-off but Pankaj takes it. 92/2
