A single as this is tapped towards point and Rahul runs quickly to the other end.


4.4 overs (1 Run)
NOT OUT! Agarwal was well in. Looked close to the naked eye but the batsman was well in. Good length ball outside off, Agarwal places this to cover-point and wants a quick run this time. The throw is to the bowler’s end and it hits. The umpires take it upstairs to have a look for the run out as the fielding side appeal for the same. Replays roll in and….Agarwal is well in. Single in the end, but a risky one.



Is that out? In by a good distance, Agarwal.

3.6 overs (4 Runs)

Punjab’s openers are KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. Hmm…Gayle at No. 3 it looks like. Chris Morris to start with the ball for Bangalore. Here we go…
