Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Wasim Jaffer, 2.2 ov), 2-22 (Jacques Kallis, 4.4 ov), 3-29 (Rahul Dravid, 5.5 ov), 4-40 (Robin Uthappa, 8.1 ov), 5-52 (Mark Boucher, 10.5 ov), 6-72 (Virat Kohli, 14.1 ov), 7-85 (Roelof van der Merwe, 16.4 ov), 8-92 (Praveen Kumar, 17.2 ov), 9-103 (Dillon du Preez, 19.2 ov), 10-105 (Vinay Kumar, 19.6 ov)
2.2 to W Jaffer, caught! Amit's made up for that dropped catch, he bowled a good length ball on off stump, Jaffer tried to drive off the front foot but totally mis-timed it, he ended up spooning an easy catch to Lee Carseldine at short cover, soft dismissal that. 10/1
16.4 to RE van der Merwe, that's an outstanding change of pace! 102 kmh! Roelof was swinging across the line even before the ball pitched, he missed and the ball uprooted leg stump. 85/7
19.2 to D du Preez, caught in the deep! Amit bowled another slower ball outside off, du Preez waited for it before lofting down the ground, he may have spotted the slower one but he still didn't time it well, Niraj took an easy catch and didn't fumble it this time. 103/9
19.6 to R Vinay Kumar, Amit's bowled him with another slower one, that's his fourth wicket. It was full and straight, Vinay swung across the line and missed, all six balls in the last over were slower ones. 105/10
4.4 to JH Kallis, that's gone miles in the air and it's been caught on the second attempt! Kallis tried to pull the ball but was a touch early on the shot, the top edge swirled high in the air towards deep backward square leg, Niraj Patel went for the catch and fumbled it at first attempt, he managed to recover in time and grabbed it ten inches from the ground. 22/2
5.5 to R Dravid, caught down the leg side! Carseldine pitched the ball outside leg once again and moved the ball towards the batsman, Dravid tried to play the leg glance but the ball thudded into his glove and went towards the wicketkeeper, Naman Ojha dived to his left to take a sharp catch. 29/3
8.1 to RV Uthappa, and he's trapped Uthappa plumb in front with his first ball! Uthappa tried to close the face and play the straighter one on the leg side, he missed and got hit in front of middle, the umpire's finger was up in a flash. 40/4
10.5 to MV Boucher, bowled him! Jadeja bowls a fuller, straighter and faster ball, it's too close to cut and Boucher gets a bottom edge on to the stumps, that's a huge loss for Bangalore, their tail is a wicket away. 52/5
14.1 to V Kohli, that's a super catch! Virat cuts from outside off stump and the ball goes in the air towards short third man, it's a flat chance and Morkel bends down low to take a sharp catch, he's really tall and did well to take that just before it hit the ground. 72/6

Fall of wickets: 1-27 (Graeme Smith, 5.4 ov), 2-48 (Lee Carseldine, 8.4 ov), 3-91 (Yusuf Pathan, 13.5 ov)
5.4 to GC Smith, bowled him! Smith charges and tries to swing Kallis on the leg side, the ball pitches on a length and Smith misses it completely, the stumps are in a mess. 27/1
13.5 to YK Pathan, right, are the other bowlers watching? du Preez bowls another short one which doesn't bounce as much, Yusuf tries to pull but gets a top edge towards long leg were Jaffer takes the catch, Yusuf has looked suspect against the short balls today. 91/3
