Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Jesse Ryder, 0.2 ov), 2-0 (Ross Taylor, 0.3 ov), 3-17 (Robin Uthappa, 4.5 ov), 4-52 (Kevin Pietersen, 8.5 ov), 5-63 (Virat Kohli, 11.5 ov), 6-88 (Balachandra Akhil, 15.4 ov), 7-119 (Praveen Kumar, 19.2 ov), 8-125 (Rahul Dravid, 19.4 ov)
0.2 to JD Ryder, gone! Early damage for Bangalore, pitched on a teasing length outside off and darted back in to kiss the inside edge as Ryder came forward to push at it, and Rawat made no mistake behind the stumps. 0/1
0.3 to LRPL Taylor, Dimitri you beauty!! Timber! Landed on a good length on the off stump and moved back in, Taylor walked across to clip it fine, missed it completely and leg stump went for a walk. He's on a hat-trick now. 0/2
4.5 to RV Uthappa, Uthappa throws it away, length ball on the off and his eyes lit up, tried to waft that across the line over midwicket, got the top edge and Rawat didn't have to move much to snap that. 17/3
19.2 to P Kumar, the change of pace does the trick, slower ball bowled full on a length on middle and off, Praveen, predictably, tries to smash that out of Cape Town but didn't pick it well, ended up lofting it really high and Munaf had to take a few steps to his left to take a well-judged catch, took a while to come down. 119/7
19.4 to R Dravid, excellent catch, slower ball bowled short outside off, Dravid made room and struck it well, slapping it past extra cover, but Warne's right at the edge of the circle and stretches and dives to his left to pluck that superbly. 125/8
8.5 to KP Pietersen, massive blow! Short of a length on middle, goes for the pull, replays show that was he was perhaps into the shot a little too early, mistimed it towards midwicket where Niraj Patel dived forward to pouch a good catch inches from the ground. 52/4
11.5 to V Kohli, bowled 'im, tossed up on leg stump, inducing Kohli to step out of the crease, he tries to work it away into the leg side, misses, the ball spins back in to peg back middle. 63/5
15.4 to B Akhil, genius! Got him with the flighted one, thrown up on the leg stump sucking him out of the crease, he tried to drive it through the leg side, missed, and the ball spun back in to hit middle and off. 88/6

Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Swapnil Asnodkar, 0.5 ov), 2-7 (Graeme Smith, 2.6 ov), 3-14 (Niraj Patel, 6.2 ov), 4-28 (Tyron Henderson, 8.3 ov), 5-28 (Dimitri Mascarenhas, 8.4 ov), 6-47 (Yusuf Pathan, 11.1 ov), 7-47 (Ravindra Jadeja, 11.2 ov), 8-53 (Shane Warne, 13.3 ov), 9-53 (Munaf Patel, 13.5 ov), 10-58 (Kamran Khan, 15.1 ov)
0.5 to SA Asnodkar, terrible shot, he's just facing his third ball, good length on middle and off and has a waft at it, looking to heave it over midwicket, mistimed it and it lobbed up towards Kohli at point where he took a dolly. 2/1
2.6 to GC Smith, Bangalore are on top, pitched it short outside off and Smith was tempted into going for the cut, he slashed at it and edged it straight to Dravid waiting at a widish first slip. 7/2
6.2 to NK Patel, trouble for Rajasthan, length ball on the off and Patel, in an act of desperation really, tries to clear mid-on but is unable to do so as there's a tall Anil Kumble guarding that area, takes it on the second attempt. 14/3
8.3 to T Henderson, the slower one does the trick, bowled at 104.8 kmph, landed on a length on middle and Henderson swung across the line, didn't pick the change in pace, missed it as he was a little early into the shot and the ball crashed into middle. 28/4
11.1 to YK Pathan, is that the end now? Kumble pulled it short outside off and Yusuf attempted to swat it back over the bowlers head, hit the toe-end of the bat, skied it towards long-off where Ryder took a good catch running forward. 47/6
11.2 to RA Jadeja, That should seal it for Bangalore, gave it air this time unlike the previous one where he bowled it flat and short, Jadeja got down on one knee and tried to slog-sweep it over deep midwicket, got a lot of elevation and though it was struck well, didn't get the distance he desired, Kohli ran well to his right to take a neat catch well inside the ropes. 47/7
13.3 to SK Warne, googly, deceives Warne in the flight, he charges forward to swipe it over midwicket, misses, Uthappa takes it cleanly and clips the bails to take Bangalore to the brink here. 53/8
13.5 to MM Patel, Kumble takes his fourth, tossed up and Munaf's eyes lit up immediately, landed on a length on middle and he had a massive swing at it, mistimed it and Steyn ran well in from long-on to cup that. 53/9
15.1 to Kamran Khan, five-for for Kumble, tossed it up outside off, Rawat tried to swing it over midwicket, got a thin edge that was snapped up easily by Uthappa. 58/10
