6

Richardson to Dwayne Smith, SIX, Smith has arrived. Murders this fuller length delivery with a brutal hoick. Cross seamer, flat foot, doesn't matter. Got across, swung arms and butchered it over long-on

4

Richardson to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, that's been rightly put into the fine leg dustbin. Down leg, enough room to swivel and swat it past a diving short fine

4

to Dwayne Smith, no ball, FOUR, poor stuff. From the Umpire Bruce Oxenford. Straightens on leg-stump, Smith swivels and pull-sweeps it through fine leg. had an iota of his heel behind the line but I am not the umpire. Free-hit coming up

6

to Dwayne Smith, SIX, that's a free-for-all buffet. Short googly, Smith backs away, gets under in and slogs it over mid-wicket with disdain

4

Abdulla to Dwayne Smth, FOUR, Smth has swagger and strong bottom hand. Not a bad ball at all. Quck and rght upto hm, Smth crouches and heaves t over md-on

4

Abdulla to Dwayne Smth, FOUR, bowls t very full and a lttle wde, Smth uses hs long reach (and handle and hands) to reach out and squeezes out a drve. Talors t through the pont-cover arc

4

to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, he heard me. He did, believe me. One step, two step and takes the ball on the up to drill it past the stumps. Wow

W

Richardson to Dwayne Smith, out Caught by de Villiers!! He doesn't drop them, this de Villiers. An embarrassingly soft dismissal this. Bowled with a cross seam, Smith meets this off-pace delivery with an intentional pick-up flick and it carries all the way to long-on. Intended a stylish chipped single over mid-on, maybe, but was beaten by the pace, played early and ended up chipping it all the way. Dwayne Smith c de Villiers b Richardson 32(21) [4s-3 6s-2]

6

Richardson to Brendon McCullum, SIX, shortish ball near the mid-riff and McCullum swivels to smoke a pull over deep backward square leg. Did the ball bleed yet?

4

Richardson to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, Richardson can't help it. Nobody can. You would bang it short seeing the batsman charging down and what does Brendon McCullum do? Adjusts, wields his bat across the line and scythes it over deep mid-wicket

6

Richardson to Brendon McCullum, SIX, this has been projectiled into its orbit. Richardson bowls it full to compensate, McCullum's experience told him to crouch and murder it with a slog. Backed away to give him the room to swing and the rest is history

4

Richardson to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, he can be delicate too. Not all power. A low full toss has been met with a straight bat and caressed past the bowler. Poor soul. 25 runs off this over to cap off the powerplay. Lesson: look away when the captain looks at you to bowl the last over of the powerplay

4

Shamsi to Brendon McCullum, FOUR, there's a slip for the googly but it doesn't matter. This is a full toss. A filthy one on the pads, McCullum gets low and sweeps the pants off it. Through mid-wicket

W

Shamsi to Brendon McCullum, out Caught&Bowled!! Gets it to pitch and see what happens. Fires the wrong 'un on leg-stump, holds in the pitch too as McCullum looked to nudge it into the leg-side and a leading edge pops safely back to Shamsi. This is a lifeline for Bangalore, McBomb looked in a mood to explode. Well, almost did. Brendon McCullum c and b Shamsi 42(24) [4s-5 6s-2]

4

to D Karthik, FOUR, wow. That's a helicopter cut. Short enough and with width, Karthik cocked his wrists and thrashed it over backward point

4

Shamsi to Raina, FOUR, Raina! Skips out of the crease, meets this legbreak and lofts it down the ground

4

Richardson to Raina, FOUR, it's beyond AB too. That good. Length ball and Raina read the length early, backed away and thumped it with a punch through mid-off. That ball was on a scooter

4

to Raina, FOUR, shot! Full on the pads, met with a crossed bat and kilos of wrists to swat it away through backward square leg

OT

to Raina, 1 run, 50-run partnership now. slings it wide of off, Raina pokes across and pushes it to deep cover

W

to Raina, out Caught by I Abdulla!! is smart and Raina is not. Lets out a shimmy quite early and gives the chance to fire it flat and further outside off. Raina has to reach out on the loft downtown, gets it off the toe-end and balloons it to long-off. Raina c I Abdulla b 28(24) [4s-3]

6

Abdulla to Jadeja, SX, that's why. Left the last ball for ths. Gets t quck agan outsde off, fetches t wth a bat swng and hammers t over deep md-wcket. Huge. Can a stadum BE any louder?

4

Abdulla to D Karthk, FOUR, was always the danger. Turnng a touch outsde off, Karthk shuffles across and kneels to pck t up wth a sweep over short fne leg

4

Abdulla to D Karthk, FOUR, a sandwch over. Two bad balls contanng four run-savng darts. A full toss, can you beleve t? Karthk thumps t over Abdulla's head wth a shmmy and gets the all-mportant boundary. Brngs the equaton down to 7 runs off the last over

OT

to D Karthik, 1 run, a potential match-winning fity this. Gets a full toss as a gift, can't butcher it but puts enough in this loft to long-off to get a single

W

to Jadeja, out Caught by Rahul!! Rahul hasn't given up. Takes a scorcher behind the stumps to send Jadeja back and then celebrates letting his flying hair-mane sail. Shortish off-cutter outside off, was an easy dab to third man. Jadeja instead plays it finer and Rahul dives full length sideways to grab it with one hand. A wicket too late? Jadeja c Rahul b 12(10) [6s-1]

4

to Dwayne Bravo, FOUR, game over. BLR lose this, despite winning the toss. Despite KL Rahul's maiden T20 League fifty. Despite Kohli's sparkling first ever T20 ton. How? Beyond me. Kohli reckoned this was 15-20 runs above par, and so did I, but this pitch is loyal to its (makeshift) masters. Never slowed up, allowing easy runs that were certainly helped by some dross bowling. Coming to the ball, it wasn't a bad one. Fullish but Bravo is Bravo. Gets under it and tonks it through long-on - places it straight enough to beat the effort in the deep. Poor Kohli, someone give him a hug. How symbolic is it to get a ton only to lose the match, on Sachin's birthday? Bad bowling line-ups follow Indian legends, no?

OT

Kumar to Watson, 1 run, if Dwayne Smith at mid-on had effected a direct-hit that would have been curtains for Watson. Fortunately for him, he missed. Watson ushes it to mid-on and hares down to the other end. Smith icks u the ball quickly and flings in a throw, but can't hit the stums. Watson was a goner

4

Kulkarni to Watson, FOUR, too straight from Kulkarni, Watson flicks it to the left of the fieler at eep mi-wicket, who puts in a esperate ive, but can't succee in his eneavour

W

Kulkarni to Watson, out Caught by Jaeja!! Kulkarni has picke up the prize scalp of Watson with a slower one. It was a skier, but Jaeja kept his eyes on the ball all the way an then grabbe the catch with both hans. Goo length ball an just outsie off, Watson aims to butcher it over the infiel on the off-sie, but gets it off the toe-en an Jaeja at cover-point takes it. Watson c Jaeja b Kulkarni 6(6) [4s-1]

OT

Kumar to Kohli, 1 run, good running between the wickets hel the duo to scamer across for a quick single. Kohli ats it to cover-oint and sets off, his artner resonds and makes it

4

Kumar to Kohli, FOUR, quality shot by Kohli! He cams on the back foot and hammers the cut to the dee backward oint fence. It came right off the screws

4

Kumar to Kohli, FOUR, good length delivery and just outside off, Kohli dances down the track and drives it to the extra cover fence. Nice timing and lacement from him there

4

Kulkarni to e Villiers, FOUR, the first bounary off the afternoon for the South African maestro! Again offere with with, e Villiers cracks the cut past the iving fieler at cover-point (Raina). He gets a han on it, but that was such a ferocious cut shot that it ha enough legs to race away to the fence

4

to Kohli, FOUR, lovely use of the crease by Kohli. The straighter one from , Kohli uses the inside-out drive and the ball runs away to the deep extra cover boundary. Bravo ran around the circumference and tried to get a boot in to stop the four, but to no avail

4

to Kohli, FOUR, Kohli is in prime form. Flatter delivery and on off-stump, Kohli essays the punchy-drive and it rockets to the extra cover fence. He is at his glorious best when he plays those drives through the cover-region

4

to Kohli, FOUR, slightly shorter in length and on the stumps, Kohli punches it past the diving cover fielder and no need to run for those. Kohli got on top of the bounce to play that stroke

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, de Villiers follows up Kohli with a sparkling drive. Flatter delivery and on off-stump, de Villiers goes inside-out and drives it to the sweeper cover boundary. Splendid spread of run-scoring on display

OT

to de Villiers, 1 run, shorter in length, de Villiers cuts it square on the off-side. There was a chunk of dust coming out when de Villiers was beaten in the last over. Good signs for BLR's spinners?

W

to de Villiers, out Caught by Raina!! Soft dismissal after essaying a promising knock. de Villiers cracks the inside-out drive to a flatter delivery, Raina at cover keeps his eyes on the ball and takes the catch by reverse-cupping it and then tumbles backwards. Both de Villiers and Kohli were providing the money's worth to fans at the stadium. However, de Villiers now has to go back to the hutch. de Villiers c Raina b 20(16) [4s-2]

4

to Rahul, FOUR, this time, Rahul aims to reverse sweep, but ekes out a top-edge that goes over the slip fielder and into the third man fence

4

to Kohli, FOUR, Kohli beat two fielders in the deep with clockwork precision there. Kohli sinks on one knee and slog-sweeps it to the deep mid-wicket fence. Another boundary for the Indian captain

4

Bravo to Rahul, FOUR, Bravo tries one of those slow in-dipping slower ones, but does not get the dip on it. Rahul cracks the drive to bisect the gap through cover and mid-off with needlepoint precison. No need to run for those. It was creamed by him

6

to Rahul, SIX, Rahul has shown on occasions in domestic cricket that he has an extra gear. It is hard to forget his sumptuous knock for South Zone against Central Zone in the Duleep Trophy in 2014, when he unfurled a series of crackerjack shots. Here he is showing glimpses of it. Rahul uses his reach to charge down the track, takes it on the half-volley and and lofts it straight down the ground for a maximum

OT

to Kohli, 2 runs, shorter in length, Kohli waits for it and cuts it to sweeper cover. He hustles across for the second run. With it, Kohli also cracks another fifty in the T20 League

4

Bravo to Kohli, FOUR, the 50-run stand between the two is up now. These slower ones are becoming predictable. Kohli shows deft touch to place a slower one wide of the diving short third man fielder and into the fence

6

Kulkarni to Rahul, SIX, the slower short one from Kulkarni, Rahul picks it from the han an pulls it over mi-wicket. When the leather met the willow, it gave an inkling that it came right off the screws

6

Kulkarni to Rahul, SIX, Rahul's enterprising knock might surprise a few. But those few who watch omestic cricket regularly know that he can lift the tempo. Rahul backs away an lofts it over long-off. It goes all the way

4

Kumar to Kohli, FOUR, low full toss from raveen, Kohli uses his feet and whis it to McCullum at long-on who fumbles under ressure and that results in a boundary

4

Kumar to Rahul, FOUR, can I call Rahul the wristy wizard for that shot? Low full toss from raveen, Rahul just whis it to the mid-wicket fence. These full tosses are not working for sure

4

Kumar to Rahul, FOUR, Rahul makes room, dances down the track, oens the blade to drill a full toss to sweeer cover. It had enough legs to cross the boundary roe

D

Bravo to Kohli, 2 runs, Andrew Tye makes a valiant effort by diving forward to pouch a catch at long-on, but it falls just in front of him. Kohli lifts a slower one to long-on, where Tye's gallant piece of fielding does not meet with success

OT

Kulkarni to Rahul, 1 run, Rahul has grabbe the opportunity to crack his maien T20 League fifty. He gets a generous roun of applause from his team in the ug-out. Rahul pushes it to long-on. It was a length elivery from Kulkarni

4

Kulkarni to Kohli, FOUR, this time, Kohli backs away after using his feet an slaps it to the extra cover bounary. The stan now is worth 100

6

Bravo to Kohli, SIX, Kohli, though, gives a fitting riposte by depositing a very full ball over the mid-wicket fence. He is in the nervous 90s now

4

Bravo to Kohli, FOUR, holy! Moly! Can Kohli crack a century? Here he waltzes down the track, and hammers this full toss straight down the ground for a boundary

4

Bravo to Kohli, FOUR, Kohli certainly writes his own scripts. Kohli crunches his first T20 League century off the final ball of the innings. He holds his arms aloft after removing his helmet and hugs KL Rahul. He deservedly gets the applause from his teammates. The smile on his face shows that he really enjoyed playing that knock. He is surely pumped up. Even though, he is playing for the opposition, the crowd too roars in delight. Very full and just outside off, Kohli backed away and sliced it over backward point for a boundary
