Praveen Kumar4145211.25112500
19.5 to V Kohli, some respite for Lions, Kohli is caught at backward square leg, and that was a stunning catch from Bravo! He went a long way across to sweep the ball to leg, but a flying DJ Bravo leapt his left to grab that with both hands. 248/2
19.6 to SR Watson, a wicket to end the innings too, Lions will take it as a dot ball. Swinging away a bit outside off, Watson drove and got an inside edge to the keeper. 248/3
Dhawal Kulkarni3033111.0073200
3.5 to CH Gayle, Gayle's gone in single digits again! He chopped the ball with hard hands on the off side, got a thick inside edge and the ball just clipped top of leg stump after a bounce. Enough to dislodge the bail. 19/1

Stuart Binny201306.5052000
Sreenath Aravind301515.0092000
1.5 to DR Smith, kept low! Aravind has struck in his first over again! Smith was camping on his back foot against a good length ball. Plays the pull and in doing so was playing across the line. The ball sneaks under his inside edge and topples off. Arr-cee-bee are on their way.. 9/1
Yuzvendra Chahal401934.75131100
4.6 to BB McCullum, caught at long-off! That's the wicket Bangalore would have wanted desperately. Chahal puts his finger on the lips and asks everyone to shush. It was a tossed up delivery on off stump, McCullum looked for a six down the ground and doesn't get enough power behind it. 37/2
7.5 to DJ Bravo, five down, Chahal traps DJ lbw! Bravo's feet were stuck in the crease as he played for the legspin, but the ball pitched around off and came in just a bit, from the back of the hand, and trapped him right in front. Easy decision, Lions going down here. 47/5
11.2 to AD Nath, third one for Chahal, bowled'm! Straighter line from Chahal with some flight, looks like it was a premeditated sweep from Nath, who missed the ball completely and lost his middle stump. 68/6
Shane Watson10303.0040010
Chris Jordan301143.66100020
6.5 to KD Karthik, can you keep him out of action? AB has taken a pretty good catch running backwards! DK came down to loft that over the covers, don't think he middled that, and it quite high. AB ran back from extra cover and made it look easy, taking it comfortably too. 44/3
6.6 to RA Jadeja, two in two for Jordan with a return catch! Lions are crumbling...Jadeja chipped the length ball straight back to the bowler and Jordan had to just raise his arms towards his right shoulder to grab that. 44/4
12.1 to P Kumar, that's the third for Jordan too, bowls PK! Fired in a full delivery at the stumps, PK wanted to put ti away to the leg side and only got an inside edge that went off his pad to the off stump. 69/7
12.5 to DS Kulkarni, drags it onto his stumps, Kulkarni as well. No. 4 for Jordan! It was a back of length ball outside off, Kulkarni didn't moves his feet while trying to chop that and got an edge onto his stumps. 74/8

Chris Gayle20301.50100001
Sachin Baby0.40426.0031000
18.3 to AJ Finch, yeah Baby, you got Finch! It was going towards the stumps, Finch slogged to the leg side and found Aravind and deep midwicket. 104/9
18.4 to S Kaushik, that's it, two in two for Baby and RCB win by a whopping 144 runs! Slightly slower through the air as it turned towards leg, Kaushik wanted to work it to leg and got an edge to midwicket where Aravind leapt forward to take it with both hands. 104/10
