BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Johan Botha403017.50121300
15.4 to M Kaif, Caught! Kaif tries to smash it out of the stadium but does not connect it well and it goes a mile high into sky and Hodge has enough time to settle under it and gobble that up at long-on. 107/7
Pankaj Singh401824.50152000
4.4 to MA Agarwal, Caught by Owais Shah! Mayank looks to smack it out of the stadium but gets a top edge and high it goes into the dark sky, Shah does well to run to his left and cups it easily in the end, Royals draw first blood here!. 42/1
4.6 to CH Gayle, Bowled! that's the prize scalp! Gayle doesnt move his feet to a good length delivery outside off, looks to hammer it past cover but gets a thick inside edge onto his stumps, that's timber disturbed, Royals are pumped up!. 42/2
Amit Singh3.5043211.2186100
16.5 to R Vinay Kumar, Bowled! that's the sixth time the timber has been disturbed in this innings, slightly short, skips down the track and looks to heave it over midwicket but the ball nips back off the seam and knocks the top of his middle stump. 116/8
19.5 to M Muralidaran, It's all over! starts and finishes off with Rahane in action again, Murali gives room and tries to loft it over covers but it comes off the bottom of the bat and loops high and our man of the evening Rahane at cover runs back and takes a regulation catch. 136/10
Brad Hogg401914.7581000
17.2 to Z Khan, Caught at midwicket! floating length, Zaheer tries to go over midwicket with a fierce pull but hits it out straight to Rahane who takes an easy catch. 120/9
Siddharth Trivedi402546.2580110
8.4 to AB de Villiers, inside edge! Trivedi gets him with a slower ball, 107 kph, de Villiers was stuck at the crease and the ball stayed low too, big edge pegs back the middle stump. 69/3
10.3 to V Kohli, Bowled! that's the final nail in the coffin for RCB, Kohli doesnt pick the slower one as he swipes across the line and looks to pull it over midwicket but the ball goes straight through the gate and his middle stump is knocked back. 78/4
14.1 to SS Tiwary, Bowled! slower one, Tiwary doesnt move his feet and swings across the line, tries to go over midwicket but misses, ball goes crashing into the middle stump. 101/5
14.4 to DL Vettori, Bowled! one more bites the dust! Trivedi follows Vettori as he makes room and looks to drive it through covers and takes a faint inside edge and goes on to peg his leg stump back. 103/6
