Hodge plays darts
Shivnarine Chanderpaul had fallen to a poor shot just the over before and J Arunkumar, playing his first IPL match, had quite a task ahead of him as Bangalore required 112 off 72 balls. He did well to hit three fours of the first four balls of the over but as he tapped the ball for a single off the fifth, Brad Hodge ran from deep point to third man and threw the ball straight at the stumps. Arunkumar departed for 22 with Bangalore needing 99 off 67 balls..
Dada takes out Dravid
Sourav Ganguly tightened the noose round Bangalore's neck with a three-over spell in which he gave away only seven runs. After his first two overs went for just six runs, Ganguly cleaned up Rahul Dravid who missed a paddle-sweep and lost his leg stump.
Kartik stays sharp
With 35 needed of 12 balls, Cameron was the man Bangalore would have been hoping would fire for them. Murali Kartik bowled to Mark Boucher, who drove it straight down the pitch. Kartik fielded the ball and ran out Cameron, who, at the non-striker's end, had backed up too far to return to the crease. Boucher hit two fours and a six off the next three balls but it was too late by then.
