02.52.5: Chetan Sakariya to Devdutt Padikkal, DROPPED! Sanju Samson is the culprit. Rajasthan cannot afford to do that. Back of a length, around off and cutting back in to cramp the batsman, Devdutt Padikkal is on the back foot, attempting to cut but ends up getting a thick outside edge.

Srikar Bharat is very swift to take the bails off. A good passage of play for Bangalore. Chahal has certainly found his form in the last couple of games.

The keeper, Srikar Bharat, calls for it, keeps his eyes on the ball and takes a good catch. We saw a similar catch going down in one of the Chennai games when Dhoni had dropped it. The calling was crucial here and luckily for Srikar, Mohammed Siraj at short fine leg was alert. A timely breakthrough for Bangalore, can they capitalize?
