4

to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, Smith throws his bat at it and hits it hard. Length delivery outside off stump, Smith drives uppishly between mid-off and extra-cover. First boundary of the innings

W

to Dwayne Smith, out Bowled!! What is it with and one of his team-mates scoring a hundred in the game? I remember him taking four wickets when Gayle scored a hundred against Punjab last season. He's started very well again! Nothing but a short of length delivery on the stumps, no change of pace, probably kept a little bit low than Smith expected, he was through with the pull shot early and the off pole went cartwheeling. Just the start BLR wanted. Dwayne Smith b 7(6) [4s-1]

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, now that is more like Baz! Hit hard for four. bowls full and in the slot, McCullum drills the drive hard, mid-off was very wide it raced past him to his right

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, lofted over the top, not from the middle of the bat though! Baz has changed gears! Full and outside off stump, McCullum drives it away over cover for a boundary

4

to Jadeja, FOUR, promoted to No. 3, Jaddu has to take responsibility and he's hit a lovely pull shot here. Short and on the stumps, Jadeja hits it over mid-wicket

4

to Jadeja, FOUR, googly serves the width, Jadeja frees arms and thumps it through extra cover

6

to Jadeja, SIX, take that, Chinnaswamy! loops this up bravely, Jadeja gets his bat across and sweeps it over deep mid-wicket with swagger

W

to Brendon McCullum, out Caught by de Villiers!! Too easy a catch at long-off. "That's probably the end of Gujarat," reckons Gavaskar on air. drifts this across very full on leg-stump, a backing away McCullum gets under it but was too cramped for room to life in power into the loft. The Chinnaswamy boundaries didn't prove Yoda-like and AB reverse-cupped it above his head. Brendon McCullum c de Villiers b 11(13) [4s-2]

OT

to Jadeja, 1 run, angled away to backward point, Gayle has a shy at the striker's end but misses. Direct hit would have sent Karthik back!

W

to D Karthik, out Caught by de Villiers!! de Villers is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient. Karthik looks to loft on the up, managed to slice it off the outside half and de Villiers had called it early from long-off. Sprinted across at an angle from there, the ball was always going away but then runs in an arc to pouch it. D Karthik c de Villiers b 2(4)

W

to Jadeja, out Caught&Bowled!! , he's done it! Bowls this cutter full, gets it to hold up and Jadeja was in a hurry. Pushes at it tamely, the ball pops up and snaffles it in his followthrough. He's on a hat-trick. Jadeja c and b 21(19) [4s-2 6s-1]

W

to Dwayne Bravo, out Lbw!! The good, old delivery flipper takes one more. Oh wait, it's the wrong 'un, say the replays. Pitches it on off, gets it to backspin and raps the pad - as Bravo was late on his tuck round the corner. Umpire obliges almost immediately. Looked out straightaway and would have hit the middle. Dwayne Bravo lbw b 1(2)

4

to Finch, FOUR, Finch sends one to the rope. Full and on the leg stump, Finch sends this wide of long-on and he hit the gap to perfection

4

to Finch, FOUR, continues to leak runs. Short of a length delivery on the off stump, Finch hops and tucks through backward square leg, no chance for the men in the deep

W

to Akshdeep Nath, out Bowled!! has three and GUJ have lost six now. Nothing but a flighted delivery on the stumps, with the asking rate so high, Akshdeep Nath had to play his shots and he plays one right across the line, only to miss it completely. Leg stump is disturbed and has his hands aloft. So Suresh Raina's replacement has scored a 6-ball 3. Akshdeep Nath b 3(6)

W

to P Kumar, out Bowled!! was thrashed all around in his previous games, but he has three in 13 balls in this contest. Amazing how fortunes change! Good length delivery on the stumps, PK, without feet movement looks to play on the on-side and misses. The ball brushes the pad and knocks out the off stump. P Kumar b 1(4)

W

to D Kulkarni, out Bowled!! Dragged on! GUJ are 74/8. This is going to be a massive net-run-rate boosting win for Kohli's boys. Short of a length delivery outside off stump, Kulkarni tries to run it down to third man, but gets an inside edge that crashes into the sticks. D Kulkarni b 2(3)

6

to Finch, SIX, another full toss, this is a legal delivery though. Finch slogs, not timed well, a man at deep square leg would have swallowed that but the area was unmanned

4

to Tambe, FOUR, now has given away 19 runs in 1.3 overs. Very full and outside off stump, Tambe tries to squeeze it out, gets the bottom of the bat and it runs away past the keeper

4

Baby to Finch, FOUR, Finch backs away and slogs in the gap between long-on and deep mid-wicket

W

Baby to Finch, out Caught by Aravind!! In the airrr and that's a good catch at deep mid-wicket. Finch wears a disappointed look on his face as he walks back. Such a poor show from GUJ and this must hurt them. Shortish delivery on the leg stump, Finch pulls it in the air, Aravind moves to his right and takes it just inside the rope. Finch c Aravind b Baby 37(38) [4s-3 6s-1]

W

Baby to Shivil, out Caught by Aravind!! BLR thrash GUJ by a whopping 144 runs. So Baby has two-in-two. Big smile from him. Short and down the leg-side, Shivil tries to flick, gets a leading edge that goes towards mid-wicket, where Aravind dives forward and takes a simple catch. Look at the delight in the BLR camp. Kohli pumps his fist and the entire dug-out is very happy. Everyone congratulate ABdV for his stupendous knock. Gayle has a bit of fun with Watson on the sidelines. Bravo and Jordan share a smile as well. Shivil c Aravind b Baby 0(1)

4

Kumar to Kohli, FOUR, this was coming! Not well controlled but Kohli won't mind, threw his bat on this back of a length, it was uish but away from the reach of backward oint, raced away to the fence

4

Kulkarni to Kohli, 4 runs, Kohli pats this length elivery to point, where Jaeja was reay for it. i everything right but ecie to throw unnecessarily towars the bowler's en, where the ball eflecte off the stumps an race away towars the eep mi-wicket fence

4

Kulkarni to Gayle, FOUR, nicely one by Gayle, he waite for this slower elivery an then abbe it fine away from the fieler at short thir man

W

Kulkarni to Gayle, out Bowle!! An that's the en of Gayle. He was a bit figety once again. This was a normal elivery, not a slower one an rushe onto him. Gayle wante to force it through the off-sie, choppe it into the groun, the ball just clippe the leg-bail on the bounce. Nothing else move, sa ismissal inee. Gayle b Kulkarni 6(13) [4s-1]

4

to Kohli, FOUR, this time Kaushik cannot get away with a bad delivery, was well short and wide of off, Kohli cuts it past cover, the ball races away to the fence

6

to de Villiers, SIX, hitting sixes off the back foot and hitting them well in front. Where do they teach this art? Take me there! Waits for this flatter delivery and then lofts the drive over deep extra cover, goes the distance

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, this man creates shots! Moves leg-side and then opens the face of the bat on the drive to send it through the square region on the off-side

6

to de Villiers, SIX, we have seen everything now, almost! His initial movement was towards the leg-side, forced the bowler to bowl it flat on the stumps, then moved across and lapped the pull over the fine leg fence

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, he has been hitting good deliveries out of the park and Kaushik thought he will get away with a short delivery. Was mistaken, de Villiers went back and then pulled it to beat deep mid-wicket and long-on, hit well between them

4

Bravo to de Villiers, FOUR, McCullum at mid-off almost pouched this one. de Villiers moved leg-side and then lofted the drive over mid-off, McCullum leapt high but failed to get his fingers to it

4

Smith to Kohli, FOUR, short and wide, Kohli thrashes it through cover, no chance for the fielder at sweeper cover

4

Smith to de Villiers, FOUR, and that will cap off the over in style. de Villiers uses his feet and then drives it over extra cover, the ball raced away to the fence

6

Kulkarni to Kohli, SIX, wow! Just wow! How authoritative was that? Why on earth woul you bowl length an that too to someone name Virat Kohli! Kulkarni trie to shorten his length on seeing Kohli avance, but he couln't make proper ajustment, went as a length ball in the slot, which was muscle all the way over long-on

6

Kulkarni to e Villiers, SIX, he's race to 43 off 23 balls now. The iea was right from Kulkarni, to take pace off the ball, but he bowle it too short, e Villiers was on the charge an ha no problems in smashing this pull over the mi-wicket fence

4

Kulkarni to e Villiers, FOUR, now this is pure class! on't take your eyes off this one folks! K was up to the stumps to prevent e Villiers from avancing own the pitch, Kulkarni bowls short of a length on the leg stump, e Villiers was actually crampe for room a bit on the pull, looke a bit hurrie as well, but he somehow manages to time it well enough to split eep mi-wicket an long-on to perfection

4

Kulkarni to e Villiers, FOUR, that iscussion hasn't worke! I am sure Baz i not ask Kulkarni to bowl short an wie, e Villiers rocks back, waits an cuts fiercely, sweeper cover was statione but he ha no chance. A gentle raise of the bat from ABV to acknowlege the applause for his fifty

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, now that was not from the middle the bat, not a great sound from the bat as it made contact with the ball, yet, the class that he is, AB de Villiers manages to loft-drive this full delivery over cover for four

6

to de Villiers, SIX, de Villiers hit the previous ball over cover and now he goes on the other-side with a slog-sweep over mid-wicket. Again not convinced that it came off the meat of the bat, but the power, the bat swing, the bat itself is very good from the master

OT

Bravo to de Villiers, 1 run, the ultimate pair bring up another century stand. Please bowlers, please, pull up your socks and do justice to the effort that these two put in for the team. Slower ball low full toss, de Villiers was foxed by the lack of pace, but manages to drag it towards mid-wicket

OT

to Kohli, 1 run, fifth fifty of the season for Virat 'Champion' Kohli. Flighted delivery on the stumps, Kohli drives it along the ground to long-on and gets to the milestone. Gets a good round of applause from the crowd and the dressing room

6

to de Villiers, SIX, that's not a big hit but this ground is small. And they travel here as well. Flighted delivery on the stumps, de Villiers goes down on one knee and slog-sweeps it over wide long-on

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, wow! Incredible hit! He knew third man was inside the ring, hence opened the face of the bat at the last moment and hit it deliberately in the air over backward point. Great thinking from de Villiers. As soon as he saw some width on offer, he had the presence of mind to quickly think about the vacant third man region instead of going hard at the ball

6

Kumar to de Villiers, SIX, oh that has gone over the roof! AB de Villiers watched it all the way and enjoyed it thoroughly! Even catain Kohli sorts a big smile on his face. New balls lease! Low full toss, de Villiers gets down low after walking across the stums and hels it away from the middle of the bat. Gee, how good is that willow in his hands? How did it go that far, for he did not try to hit it very hard

6

Kumar to de Villiers, SIX, he's mistimed this, but this is that kind of a ground! Even mishits clear the boundary quite comfortably as this one has done! K bowls short and ays the enalty, muscled all the away over mid-wicket with a ull

4

Kumar to de Villiers, FOUR, wowwww! Even Kohli didn't move after seeing that ball race off de Villiers's bat. I say even Kohli didnt move because he is the non-striker and the non-striker generally sets off for a run as soon as the contact is made by the batsman. What timing from de Villiers! Long-on was there, but this drive rocketed ast him

6

Kumar to de Villiers, SIX, in the airrrrrrr, again a mistime from de Villiers, but's gone all the way. ABdV is on 99 now. Low full toss, de Villiers goes back on across, gets into a great osition and swings really hard so that it went all the way even though the connection wasn't great

OT

Kumar to de Villiers, 1 run, take a bow AB de Villiers. This is now his fastest hundred in the T20 League. Is there anything that this man can't do? He's not human! He's a comuter or something even better! The amazing thing is he does them so easily. de Villiers mistimes the drive towards cover and gets to the milestone. Big roar from the crowd. Kohli walks and ats ABdV

6

to de Villiers, SIX, full and in the slot, de Villiers goes off-side and goes over cover, just had enough legs to clear the fence there

6

to de Villiers, SIX, and now he goes the other side of the pitch. is not willing to flight the ball and he continues to disappear. Waits nicely in the crease and slogs it away over wide long-on

4

Bravo to Kohli, FOUR, pure power there from Kohli. What a shot! Full and outside off stump, Kohli throws everything at it, but makes sure that he doesn't lose his shape. Brilliantly lofted, rather thrashed over cover for a one-bounce four

6

Bravo to Kohli, SIX, and Kohli does it even better this time. He goes over the rope! Once again a poor delivery from Bravo, can't bowl full and outside off stump to set batsmen, Kohli lofts it flat over extra-cover

4

Bravo to de Villiers, no ball, FOUR, oopsy! Bravo fails to control the slower delivery and bowls a waist-high full toss down the leg-side, called a no-ball and the next one will be a free-hit now, de Villiers helps it away past the man at short fine leg

6

Bravo to de Villiers, SIX, my word! This is insane stuff from de Villiers! Slower delivery outside off stump, de Villiers delays his assault as Bravo took pace off the ball and managed to time it well enough to deep extra-cover

6

Bravo to de Villiers, SIX, ohhhh this is huuuggeee! Another slower ball attempted, but de Villiers has picked it. Smashes this over long-on and moves to 128 off just 51 balls

6

to Kohli, SIX, Kohli is not too far from de Villiers as well! Shortish from , Kohli camps on the back foot and with a strong bottom hand grip muscles this flat over long-off

4

to Kohli, FOUR, Kohli had to reach out to meet this ball, but somehow has managed to time it so well. How did he do it? Only he will know! bowled wide outside off stump, but was not spared, four over extra-cover

6

to Kohli, SIX, change of angle for , but it doesn't work. Second double-hundred partnership for the duo in T20 League history! tries the yorker, Kohli slogs it hard over long-on

6

to Kohli, SIX, who's going to stop this bleeding? It is common sense for any bowler that you cannot afford to bowl full ball to set batsman. This is easily lofted over long-off. Boy! What entertainment for the crowd

6

to Kohli, SIX, no! is not learning his lessons! Another full ball and again he disappears for six. Full and in the slot, Kohli loft-drives this hard over long-off. He doesn't want to show his emotions, but he is really enjoying this from inside. Into the 90s now

6

Kumar to Kohli, SIX, he did not have a T20 hundred before the start of the season, but he has scored three now. First layer to record three hundreds in a season. Friendly full toss from K, Kohli smashes it straight down the ground and into the sightscreen. Takes the helmet off, looks at the sky, swings his bat and roars like a lion. Well done sir!

6

Kumar to Kohli, SIX, now what sort of a ball was that? Kohli had to wait ages for that one to came. The slower ball bumer, came very slowly that Kohli had a lot time to adjust for the lack of ace and smash it with a ull over square leg

W

Kumar to Kohli, out Caught by Dwayne Bravo!! Oh! We have a wicket here! Needed a bit of brilliance to end this stand and Bravo has ulled off a lovely catch. No emotions from the Gujarat though. They know that the damage has been done by Kohli. What a knock. Whadaa layer! Fullish delivery outside off stum, Kohli walks across and swees, hits it in the air and Bravo times his jum to erfection at backward square leg to take it above his head. Great round of alause from the crowd as Kohli walks back with his bat raised. Kohli c Dwayne Bravo b Kumar 109(55) [4s-5 6s-8]

W

Kumar to Watson, out Caught by D Karthik!! Edged and taken! So K has had everything in this match. Bowled a maiden, got thrashed and now has two-in-two. Even Shane Watson sorts a smile. Well, he can afford to because BLR have registered the second highest team total in the history of T20 League. Slower delivery outside off stum, oh looks like Watson is batting with someone else's bat. That is surely not his normal willow. Swung hard and only managed to outside-edge it to the keeer. Watson c D Karthik b Kumar 0(1)
