Both the Bangalore openers have walked off for tame scores. A pacy delivery from the Protea, at 146 clicks, around off, on a length, Virat Kohli looks to whip this to the leg side but the ball catches the leading edge.

Anrich Nortje hurls across a short ball, around off, Devdutt Padikkal sways away and plays the ramp shot towards third man pretty late.
