Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
1.5FOURDinda to Finch, FOUR, that will not impress Kohli. Poor effort from Yuvraj. That should have been stopped. Finch pulls a short of length delivery off the back foot, it went to the wrong-side of Yuvraj at mid-wicket, he tried to move to his right and stop the ball but was lazy in his effort9/0
2SIXDinda to Finch, SIX, you cannot afford to miss your length to this man. First maximum of the day! Full and right in the slot, Finch doesn't try to over-hit the ball, just lofts it with and angled bat over cover-point and it sails just over the fence15/0
2.3FOURStarc to Dhawan, FOUR, poor line from Starc, he would be disappointed with that. Down the leg side, Dhawan gently tickles it on its way and fine leg had no chance as he was very square19/0
2.5OUTStarc to Finch, out Caught by Parthiv Patel!! Oh a snorter of a delivery from Starc! Fast bouncer on the leg stump, Finch had no clue about that, he took his eyes off the ball, tried to fend but the ball goes off the glove, ricocheted off the helmet and went straight into the hands of the keeper. The crowd goes berserk as they know that this is a huge wicket! Just what Kohli wanted from his opening bowler after opting to bowl first. Finch wasn't anticipating a short ball as Starc was bowling full and around good length prior to this. Finch c Parthiv Patel b Starc 13(8) [4s-1 6s-1]20/1
3.3FOURDinda to Rahul, FOUR, stunning hit from Rahul! Short and down the leg side, Rahul swivels and hooks it away wonderfully well and it just bounces in front of the backward square leg fence27/1
4OUTDinda to Rahul, out Caught by Gayle!! He was looking so good but he's edged one here! He's absolutely livid with himself! They check for the no-ball but Dinda had his foot behind the line. So a dream start for Bangalore you can say now! Nothing but a short of length delivery outside off stump, Rahul plays the cut, the shot was on but unfortunately, the outside edge is safely held by Gayle at slip to his left. Rahul c Gayle b Dinda 6(6) [4s-1]29/2
4.2FOURAaron to Warner, FOUR, oh he's looking very good straightaway. Short of a length delivery outside off stump, Warner gets on top of the bounce and drives on the rise off the back foot, the fielder at cover puts in the dive but the ball escapes34/2
6FOURHarshal Patel to Dhawan, FOUR, oh a fine hit from Dhawan. Is he turning it on tonight? Short delivery on the off stump, Dhawan rocks back and pulls powerfully with a strong bottom-hand grip and it races away to the deep mid-wicket fence47/2
7.3FOURHarshal Patel to Warner, FOUR, bad ball! Shortish and on the pads, Warner doesn't try to do anything fancy, just flicks it very well and it rockets to the backward square leg fence beating Chahal's chase58/2
9.2FOURAaron to Dhawan, FOUR, got to learn your lessons quickly here Aaron. The previous ball he got away with one that was short and wide, he repeats that but this time, Dhawan was solid on the back foot and waiting to cut it fiercely. The fielders were just mere spectators65/2
9.5FOURAaron to Warner, FOUR, the slower delivery alright but Aaron has again given width for the batsman to free his arms. Warner was disguised for a bit, because there was room outside off stump, he was able to crack it from the middle of the bat to the wide long-off fence71/2
10.2FOURChahal to Dhawan, FOUR, fine piece of batting. Advanced and took the flighted delivery on the full and smashed it straight down the ground back over the bowler's head77/2
10.3OTHERChahal to Dhawan, 2 runs, cut very well to deep backward point, but Starc does well to save two with a slide. 50 of the partnership is up with that79/2
11.4FOURHarshal Patel to Warner, FOUR, picked up the slower delivery early, the fact that it was short allowed extra time for Warner, he waits and flat-bats it back over the bowler to the long-on fence87/2
13OUTAaron to Dhawan, out Caught by de Villiers!! Some relief for Aaron! Short delivery on the leg stump, wasn't all that a great delivery, Dhawan just mistimed the pull up in the air, deep mid-wicket took a few steps forward to grab it easily. Another start thrown away by the Hyderabad skipper. So Bangalore have broken this 62-run stand. In fact the ball took the outside half of the bat. Dhawan c de Villiers b Aaron 37(36) [4s-4]91/3
14.1SIXChahal to Warner, SIX, he had to reach out for the ball as Chahal fired it wide outside off stump on seeing the batsman advance, but Warner has made the adjustment well enough to smoke it straight over the bowler's head. Good start to the over for Hyderabad. Looks like the ball is lost in the stands. The ball is back now99/3
15.1OTHERHarshal Patel to Warner, 1 run, Warner gave up but Kohli missed a direct-hit. Low full toss wide outside off stump, Warner reaches out and smashes it to extra-cover. The fielder had enough time to take aim but missed107/3
15.3SIXHarshal Patel to Sammy, SIX, okay folks! Here we go! The crnage is about to begin. Shortish and outside off stump, Sammy waits for the ball and smashes it flat over long-off. Gee! It was hit with some power113/3
16OUTHarshal Patel to Sammy, out Caught by Starc!! This is a bonus for Bangalore! Takes some courage to bowl the slower short delivery to a player like Sammy, I think the idea was right from the bowler. If you bowl with pace to this man, especially in this ground, he'll put you over the roof. Credit to Kohli for trusting the youngster as well. Sammy lines up to pull but doesn't get the distance, straight into the hands of deep mid-wicket in the end. Sammy c Starc b Harshal Patel 8(8) [6s-1]115/4
16.2OTHERStarc to N Ojha, no run, tucks the short of length delivery to mid-wicket, Warner sets off but Ojha says 'no', Kohli the man again and he misses a direct-hit. Warner would have been a goner116/4
17FOURStarc to N Ojha, FOUR, precise batting from Ojha. Short delivery outside off stump, he knew that third man was very square and he gently guided it very fine and it thuds into the Hyderabad dug-out. That last ball spolis what was a very good over Bangalore124/4
17.4SIXDinda to Warner, SIX, 13th Indian T20 League fifty for Warner. Dinda missed the length and bowled a full toss, it was a difficult ball to hit as he walked towards the bowler but the bottom hand power takes it flat over ABdV at long-off132/4
18SIXDinda to Warner, SIX, full toss and he'll hit you all day Ashok Dinda. He ran in so fast, probably in anger to get the yorker right, but he couldn't control it and Warner had it easy. Smashed over long-on this time to make it 16 off the over. 14 came off the last 3 balls140/4
18.5SIXAaron to N Ojha, SIX, Kohli is not impressed! Full and right in the slot, thank you very much says Ojha and smokes it high and handsome over the bowler's head148/4
19OUTAaron to N Ojha, out Caught by Starc!! The extra ball has worked very well for Bangalore! Aaron will know that it wasn't a wicket-taking delivery, more a run-containing delivery as he fired it wide and full outside off stump, Ojha reaches out and slices it in the air, Starc runs around from deep backward point and takes his second catch of the night! N Ojha c Starc b Aaron 15(11) [4s-1 6s-1]149/5
19.4OUTStarc to Warner, out Bowled!! Take a bow Starc! If you ever want to know how to keep the likes of Warner calm, watch this over time and time again. He knows that he's getting the ball to swing back in, gets the yorker right again, Warner walked forward and across the sticks to help it away, he missed and it crashes into the base of middle and leg stump. Anyway, a fine hand from Warner for his side. Warner b Starc 61(49) [4s-4 6s-3]150/6
20FOURStarc to I Pathan, FOUR, oh Pathan finishes on a high and probably that's why he wanted the strike desperately. Full outside off stump, just missed the length there Starc, Pathan smashes it over cover and it goes one bounce into the fence155/6

1.1OUTBhuvneshwar to Parthiv Patel, out Bowled!! This man is on a roll of late! The off-pole goes cartwheeling!

Dream start for Bhuvi! Parthiv Patel b Bhuvneshwar 3(5)5/1
2OUTBhuvneshwar to Kohli, out Caught by N Ojha!! This is some consistency from Bhuvneshwar. He kept his line very tight outside off stump and the fans in the stands have their hands on their heads.

10.1OUTKarn Sharma to Rossouw, out Lbw!! Karn Sharma on a roll! Rossouw goes for a fancy looking reverse sweep, it was the normal leg-spinner from Sharma, the batsman misses and is struck plumb in front. The Hyderabad camp is elated! Rossouw lbw b Karn Sharma 14(23) [4s-1]59/4

15.1SIXSammy to de Villiers, SIX, de Villiers is the man to do it for Bangalore! He is standing well outside off stump and that's a sign that he's expecting some widish ones, Sammy delivers exactly that and the batsman smashes it high over long-off103/5
