4

to Gambhir, FOUR, short and punished. Not enough pace behind this delivery, Gambhir rolled his wrists on the pull and sends it to the deep backward square leg fence

W

to Uthappa, out Caught by Kohli!! He has struck. That will send the crowd into a frenzy. And it's his primary art that has earned the wicket. Got the ball to move away just enough outside off. Uthappa was trying to push the drive on the up. Got a thickish outside edge that carried to Kohli at backward point. Easy one there for the captain. Uthappa c Kohli b 1(4)

6

to Chris Lynn, SIX, that is more like it. Stand and deliver stuff from Lynn. The ball was a bit full and it helped him, He cleared his front leg a bit and lofted over the long-off fence

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, use of feet from the KOL skipper and it has paid its dividends. Gets closer to the pitch of the ball and then swings across. There is no one manning the deep mid-wicket fence and the ball races away to the fence

W

to Chris Lynn, out Bowled!! Peach! Presented Lynn with a fait accompli. He could not do anything about it. Quicker delivery that just turned enough to elude the bat of Lynn. Pegs the off stump back. How well does this young leggie bowls on this ground. Things looking a bit shaky for the visitors. Chris Lynn b 15(12) [6s-1]

6

Shamsi to Gambhir, SIX, Gambhir is done with his watchful approach. Clears his front leg on this tossed up delivery. Dispatches it over the cow corner fence

4

Shamsi to Gambhir, FOUR, not a great effort by Aaron at deep backward square leg. Was slow to get low to his right and that earns Gambhir a four. His previous shot had forced Shamsi to drop it short. Gambhir rocked back and pulled it to the deep backward square leg fence

OT

to M Pandey, 1 run, Gayle missed the target at the bowler's end. Had it hit, Pandey could have continued running, back to the pavilion though. Pandey moved leg-side and drove it to point, Gambhir wanted a single and Pandey had to respond. You don't run your captain out

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, why do they even call it a good length? Gambhir clears his front leg and swings across the line, finds the gap through mid-wicket

W

to Gambhir, out Lbw!! Yorker. A slow one and it has got the better of Gambhir. Marginally hit outside off. But now it does not matter for the man who matters has raised his finger and sunk Gambhir. But has he sunk the hopes of KOL too. Can's say right now. Slower yorker and Gambhir was deceived by it as he tried to flay the shot through the on-side, the ball dipped in and hit him on the back leg. Gambhir lbw b 37(29) [4s-4 6s-1]

W

to M Pandey, out Caught by Sachin Baby!! That's a wicket shoplifted. Pounds this ball on a short length, gets it to rise up but Pandey's prepared. Plonks his front leg away, flat-bats the pull but could power it only as far as long-on. 's dead ghosts then returned to haunt. Umpires checked for a no ball, finds an iota of his boot behind the line and obliged. M Pandey c Sachin Baby b 8(12)

6

to A Russell, SIX, that's a ball that could take the thunder away from that Umesh Yadav spell. Horrendous. Short, really short, sat up and Russell murdered it with a pull over deep mid-wicket. HUGE

6

to Y Pathan, SIX, ten thousand thundering typhoons. That powerful. The Pathan power. Just a short of length ball sitting up pretty, Pathan swings his arms and pulls the bejeezus out of it...over cow corner

4

to A Russell, byes, FOUR, stumping missed. That's a cardinal sin. has been excellent tonight. Saw Russell backing away, fired it full between his legs and skirts it past the inside edge. Keeper was watching the batsman, exends his hands to collect the ball but gets evaded

D

to A Russell, no run, another one turning away from the stumps. Rips away, Russell swings but misses

6

Shamsi to A Russell, SIX, well, Chinnaswamy Tyrion Lannister-like boundaries don't help. That's a top-edge that was hit deep into the crowd. Oh my! Googly again but it was fuller this time. Russell heaves, gets an top-edge and survives

6

Shamsi to A Russell, SIX, this is well hit. Much like a redemption for his conscience. Full in the slot, Russell gets on one knee and slog sweeps it over long-on. This is getting interesting

4

Shamsi to A Russell, FOUR, a misfield at long-off gives this away too. How the Universe conspires.. Everthing is a wide googly, inviting Russell to make up all the power. Russell has much of them. 12892698462 watts actually. Flat-bats it away for a boundary

4

to Y Pathan, FOUR, slower full ball, Pathan closes himself and buries his heads to unleash a clip. Round the corner and an easy boundary

6

to A Russell, SIX, Russell has a bazooka, not a bat. Full ball, alright, but it's been muscled away. Gets low Yoda-like, gets under it but couldn't quite. Slices over long-off, can you believe? Someone check that bat (and his diet)

4

to Y Pathan, FOUR, the pitches, lengths and lines have been turned redundant. Bangalore's carving out another chase. Full ball, Pathan swings his willow and clobbers this over mid-wicket. Cleaves the gap between deep mid-wicket and long-on for a one-bounce boundary

4

to Y Pathan, FOUR, wide and short. That's a suicide. An invitation to Halloween. Straightens his elbows and thrashes it with a cut through extra cover

4

to Y Pathan, FOUR, all the shots now on the show. bangs one in, Pathan turns around, waits and then fetches this wide one with a pull. Waited long enough to swivel and off the lower half of the bat through deep backward square

6

to Y Pathan, SIX, not this Six. Not Bangalore's bowling. Not my typing. What surprises me more is why is the crowd not yet on sedatives? Full ball with an invitation to be spanked, Pathan winds up to wield and biffs it over long-on

4

to Y Pathan, FOUR, this is getting tastier. Gets a length ball outside off, throws the sink at this but there; bounce on this one. Off the top-edge, wide of the keeper and it runs away to third man. 23 off the last 3 overs. When was BLR's bowling potent, again?

W

to A Russell, out Caught by Binny!! He's walking but he has done what he needed to. A hurricane knock to get his team on the brink. Fullish delivery pinged wide, Russell got on his knees to reach out, biffs it with a push iron (read a flat bat) but couldn't thrust it with enough power. Off the toe-end and a simple catch at deep cover. A Russell c Binny b 39(24) [4s-1 6s-4]

6

Shamsi to Y Pathan, SIX, how ironic to get to a fifty courtesy the kilos of wood on your bat and the dwarfness of Chinnaswamy's boundaries. Googly pushed wide, Pathan just leans forward and brutes it over long-off. Can someone stop the carnage or have the Gods yielded too?

4

Shamsi to Y Pathan, FOUR, can't figure out how deft and deliberate it was, but it's a boundary. Gets good bounce on this googly, Pathan is too much inside the line and then opens his bat a touch to squirt it past the keeper's gloves...through third man

4

Shamsi to Suryakumar Yadav, FOUR, drifts this wrong 'un on leg-stump, Yadav turns around and sweeps it into the fine leg oblivion

D

Shamsi to Suryakumar Yadav, no run, the googly machine lets out another. Shorter in length than the last ball, Yadav looks to dab it late. There's an edge that the keeper shells...not sure. Need replays

4

to Suryakumar Yadav, FOUR, it's a done deal. Things Bangalore is famous for: IT geeks, pleasant weather, bisi bele bath and successful chases. Another team stumbles but Chinnaswamy plays the Godmother again. Top edges flew, mistimed shots carried but don't underestimate the good shots that were on offer. Coming to the delivery, it was an apt one to summarize Bangalore's bowling endemic (they humble themselves each season). Darted on leg stump, Yadav turned around and picked it with a flick over deep square leg

6

orkel to Gayle, SIX, there he goes! Hurls down the track, and orkel ust have been unnerved seeing hi charge. Drops it on a length and gets spanked over his head. Off and running

W

orkel to Gayle, out Caught by Uthappa!! What a way to hit back! Excellent short ball with soe good shoulder behind it. Clibs awkwardly around shoulder height and rushes Gayle on the pull. He's in no control at all and skies it off a thick top edge. Soe hesitation between the bowler and keeper as to whose catch it is, but then orkel backs out well in tie. Gayle c Uthappa b orkel 7(7) [6s-1]

4

orkel to Rahul, FOUR, short ball which didn't see to have THAT orkel veno on it. Laboured off the deck and is pulled away wristily behind square. Kept it all along the ground and fine leg is up in the ring

4

to Rahul, FOUR, thrashes a drive past a diving extra-cover where Chawla is impaired with a bad bounce. It was too full from , allowed Rahul to get to the pitch and force it through

4

to Rahul, FOUR, this doesn't happen very often. Back to back boundaries to welcome to the crease. Rahul grounds his back knee, uses his long reach to good effect and wallops a sweep past a diving backward square

4

Yadav to Kohli, FOR, is there some magnet driving these bowlers towards Kohli's pads today? Yadav is gilty of feeding Kohli with a half-volley there, and is mercilessly flicked throgh sqare leg

4

Yadav to Rahl, FOR, he's getting back into that groove, into that zone in which he was in the previos game. Rocks back qickly to a short ball and plls it emphatically along the carpet behind sqare

4

to Kohli, FOUR, how often do you see this with leggies! Them dropping it short now and again is more common than seeing sapiosexuals on Tinder. Kohli slides back in the crease and hammers the pull through mid-wicket

OT

to Kohli, 2 runs, short ball turning away outside off, cut ferociously in front of square and Pathan is compelled into a sprint at sweeper cover. Does well to dive and cut it off

6

to Rahul, SIX, this is a facet of his game which has improved drastically by the looks of it. The ability to hit sixes. Steps out to the leggie, gets close enough to the pitch of the ball and levitates it over long-off

4

to Rahul, FOUR, oh brilliant. He was lining up for a sweep, you know. Then saw the ball was full and wide outside off so he opened the bat-face and sliced it between backward point and short third man

6

to Rahul, SIX, Rahul is firing on all cylinders today. slides it down leg, Rahul sinks on one knee and slog-sweeps it over the deep backward square leg fence. He is in prime form

4

to Rahul, FOUR, Rahul reaches his fifty in style with a reverse sweep. He takes on a flatter delivery and uses the reverse sweep and it runs away to the third man boundary. He raises his bat to acknowledge the crowd. Kohli pats him

W

to Rahul, out Caught by Y Pathan!! Rahul's sparkling spread of run-scoring comes to an end. He is a disappointed man as he almost thuds his bat onto the ground. Flatter delivery and on off-stump, Rahul slices the loft to Yusuf at sweeper cover, who keeps his eyes on the ball and pouches it. He was looking to lift it over long-off. Rahul c Y Pathan b 52(32) [4s-6 6s-2]

4

to Kohli, FOUR, the off-spinner from , but it does not turn, Kohli rocks back and cuts it to the sweeper cover fence. He nailed that one

4

to Kohli, FOUR, this time, Kohli stoops on one knee and cracks the slog-sweep, it races away to the deep mid-wicket fence. It beat two fielders in the deep with perfection

W

to de Villiers, out Lbw!! The flatter delivery has done the trick for . de Villiers camps back to a ball that he should have been forward. He tries to tuck it and misses. On expected lines, dishes out an appeal for LBW. The umpire answers the appeal in the affirmative. It was crashing into middle and leg-stump. It might have been a seam up ball on replays. de Villiers lbw b 4(6)

6

to Watson, SIX, now that is what Watson is good at. He slog-sweeps a pushed through ball over the mid-wicket fence. Russell jumps in the air to pouch the catch, but even he had no chance there

4

to Watson, FOUR, Watson buries a full toss to the deep mid-wicket fence. It was hit with brute force

OT

orkel to Kohli, 1 run, short of length delivery and outside off, Kohli taps it to id-wicket. He cracks yet another fifty in this T20 League. It has becoe a routine affair for hi these days

D

orkel to Kohli, 2 runs, well, Gabhir has pretty uch dropped a sitter at backward point. Kohli waltzes down the track and tries to haer it over the cover-region, but gets it off the toe-end towards Gabhir, who takes a few steps backwards but can't hold onto the catch

W

orkel to Kohli, out Caught by A Russell!! Well, orkel will thank his stars that the issed opportunity by Gabhir did not result in KOL bleeding a lot of runs. Kohli tries to lift a length ball over the long-off region and slices it to Russell at sweeper cover who keeps his eyes on the ball and snaffles it. Kohli c A Russell b orkel 52(44) [4s-4]

4

Yadav to Watson, FOR, fll toss and otside off, Watson cracks the drive to the sweeper cover bondary. It was a meaty blow from him

4

Yadav to Sachin Baby, FOR, fller length delivery and on the stmps, Baby lifts it over the bowler's head and into the downtown territories

4

Yadav to Sachin Baby, FOR, Yadav yanks his length back on this delivery, Baby plonks his front foot and plls it to the deep mid-wicket fence. It is raining fors and sixes at the grond now. Yadav is nder extreme pressre

6

Yadav to Sachin Baby, SIX, 23 rns off Yadav's over! Baby ses his feet and plverises it over the deep sqare leg bondary. Crackerjack shot from him

4

Russell to Wtson, FOUR, Wtson mkes room nd looks to loft it over long-off, but gets thickish outside edge nd the bll rces wy to the third mn fence

4

Russell to Wtson, FOUR, this is n unfir gme! Just unfir on the bowlers. Full nd on the stumps, Wtson gin mnufctures room nd tries to hmmer it over the off-side nd the outside edge zoots wy to the third mn boundry

4

Russell to Wtson, FOUR, finlly, Wtson gets it off the sweet spot of the bt nd on this fst outfied, it just rockets to the boundry bords. Very full nd on leg-stump, Wtson slogs it to the mid-wicket boundry

W

Russell to Schin Bby, out Cught&Bowled!! Well, wht hppened there? Bby could hve been dismissed in two wys. Eventully, given s cught nd bowled. Bby tries to scoop nd it comes off the toe-end. Russell tkes simple cught nd bowled chnce on offer. He lso hits the stumps nd Bby ws cught short of the crese. However, given s cught nd bowled. Schin Bby c nd b Russell 16(8) [4s-2 6s-1]

6

Yadav to Binny, SIX, when the ball met the willow, it gave an inkling that Binny got it right off the screws. The slower one from Yadav, Binny jst clears his front leg and lifts it over long-off. It cleared the fence with tmost ease

4

Yadav to Binny, FOR, now, Binny shows some finesse. The crowd roars in the backgrond. The shortish ball from Yadav, Binny backs away a toch and ramps it over the keeper's head

6

Yadav to Binny, SIX, in his last 10 balls, Yadav has gifted away 40 rns! BLR's batsmen have explored every nook and cranny of the grond against Yadav's bowling. The slower one from Yadav, biffed over the long-on fence

W

Yadav to Binny, ot Caght by M Pandey!! Finally some respite for Yadav. The fll toss from Yadav, bt it was below waist height. Binny lifts it to Manish at long-on and he poches it. The mpire confirms the same that Yadav was fine there. Binny c M Pandey b Yadav 16(4) [4s-1 6s-2]

W

Yadav to Watson, ot Watson Rn Ot!! 1 rn completed. Another fll toss from Yadav and eventally, has reslted in a wicket. Watson works it to mid-wicket and sets off for a second rn. However, Manish fires in a throw at the striker's end and thappa whips the bails off. In the final three overs, 54 rns were collected. Now that gives yo an inkling that KOL's bowlers were taken to the cleaners. Watson rn ot (M Pandey/thappa) 34(21) [4s-5 6s-1]
