Sreenath Aravind301304.33100100
Iqbal Abdulla403829.50106110
1.1 to BB McCullum, Baz steps out and holes out to AB at deep cover! Abdulla strikes first ball and is mobbed by his team-mates. He tosses it on off and finds some turn to foil the timing. Baz can only miscue it to AB. He just sliced it. 2/1
1.4 to AJ Finch, Gayle catches this edge at slip. Finch and Baz gone within two overs. Dangled up on middle, he finds a hint of turn again. Finch is tempted to whip it away and edges it. He was tempted by the big gap at midwicket. Gayle takes a chest-high catch. 6/2
Shane Watson402947.25132220
3.4 to SK Raina, Watson gets the big wicket of Raina! Bounced out, again! Watson bangs a chest-high short ball on middle. Raina aims to pull. He ends up flapping it in the air. Aravind takes a smart, low catch at short fine leg. Plucked it inches from the turf. 9/3
15.5 to RA Jadeja, Watson comes back and strikes! Short and width outside off, Jadeja scythes it in the air. Gayle flings to his left at backward point and completes the catch. 107/5
18.3 to ER Dwivedi, six, six, and out! Kohli dives forward and takes a superb catch at long-on. He is pumped. He throws the ball away in anger. He belts out some expleletives. Typical Kohli celebration. The batsman is asked to wait. The RCB captain, meanwhile, sips some drinks at the edge of the boundary. The on-field umpires get together and refer it to the third umpire. Did Kohli take it cleanly? Looks like a clean catch. The TV umpire rules it out after multiple replays. Kohli doffs his hat and Alan Donald gives him a pat on the back. Cool down, captain. Dwivedi came down the track and dragged the short ball to the fielder. Kohli had gone low, getting his fingers underneath the ball. His right hand let the ball pop out, but Kohli hung onto it. 145/7
18.4 to DJ Bravo, Bravo is bowled. Umpire Dharmasena calls the TV umpire again. Is is a back foot no-ball? Back of a length, wicket-to-wicket stuff, Bravo loses his shape, slogs and Watson hits the middle and leg stumps. Eish, Has Watson cut the crease with the back leg? It looks mighty close. Looks like the toe is on the line. He gets away with it. Watson is more relieved than pleased. 145/8
Chris Jordan402626.5091120
13.5 to KD Karthik, DK drags it back onto the leg stump. The failed encore. This was full and outside off, not slow. DK shuffles across for another lap-sweep. He can only guide it back onto the stumps. Fine leg was in the deep. Questionable shot selection. But with DK, there is a love-hate relationship with these dinky shots. 94/4
19.3 to P Kumar, full on off at 143ks, not a yorker, Praveen makes room swings and misses. Jordan pings the off stump. It gets tiled back. 156/9
Yuzvendra Chahal4042110.5063300
16.3 to DR Smith, and Smith holes out to Kohli. Quicker one, short and wide outside off, gets turn as well. This means that the batsman has to fetch it from wide outside off. Drags a pull off the toe-end. It lodges into the hands of Kohli at long-on. He blows a kiss and celebrates the catch. Smith raises his bat as he walks back. 115/6

Praveen Kumar3.203209.60112220
Dhawal Kulkarni411443.50141000
1.2 to V Kohli, Kohli has chopped on for a duck, his first after 51 T20 innings. Short and wide outside off, does not come on to the batsman. Kohli has a leaden-footed slash at it. Swishes away from the body and drags it back onto the base of the off stump off the bottom edge. The ball didn't rise as much as Kohli expected. Huge wicket for Kulkarni. 12/1
3.2 to CH Gayle, Gayle is gone as well! Kulkarni roars. This was full on off, Gayle sat back for a big leg-side swipe. He can't touch it. Kulkarni rattles the off stump. 25/2
3.3 to KL Rahul, Rahul has nicked off for a duck! Good length and nips away late outside off, opens up the new batsman. He pokes and edges to slip. Smith dives to his right and takes it. Kulkarni has ripped through the RCB top order. 25/3
5.3 to Sachin Baby, fourth wicket for Kulkarni. RCB are reeling at 29 for 5. Back of a length and outside off, Baby comes forward and drives it in the air.... into the hands of Jakati at extra cover. Loose, loose shot. 29/5
Ravindra Jadeja402125.2592000
4.5 to SR Watson, Jadeja pushes it at 100ks, but this surface is slow. Watson is already through with the slog sweep. The ball grazes the cue end. Smith dives forward at slip to pouch it. 28/4
9.4 to STR Binny, Binny is out lbw! Did that hit Binny outside off? Just outside off. Slides on, Binny misses the sweep and is rapped on the front pad. Umpire AK Chaudhary raises his finger. RCB's procession continues. Kohli is on his feet in the dug out. He is furious. 68/6
