Mohammed Siraj to Shreyas Iyer BUMPER! Siraj goes for the bouncer this time and Iyer ducks under this one and leaves it alone.
Mohammed Siraj to Shreyas Iyer FOUR! BANG! What a shot to play to start off by Iyer! Short of a good length ball around leg, Iyer flicks this fine towards the deep square leg region and the timing is sweet and will fetch him a boundary.
Mohammed Siraj to Prithvi Shaw OUT! CAUGHT! Siraj has struck for Bangalore and the very dangerous Shaw will walk back now. This is the start Kohli wanted from Siraj when he handed him the ball and he has not disappointed. Siraj dishes a back of a length ball around middle and leg, Shaw looks for the pull but it comes off his gloves and de Villiers with the gloves does no wrong. Shaw will be mighty disappointed as he would have wanted to go big and continue but he will have to walk back.
Mohammed Siraj to Shikhar Dhawan On a good length outside off, Dhawan works this towards the cover region for a single.
Mohammed Siraj to Shikhar Dhawan FOUR! Not a great start by Siraj and Dhawan welcomes him with some style! This is another half-pitcher around middle, Dhawan pulls this one hard and it will cross the fence at deep mid-wicket. Cracking.
Mohammed Siraj to Shikhar Dhawan Back of a length ball around middle, Dhawan gets under it but it only bounces a few paces away, Shaw comes running in for the single but is sent back by Dhawan. Siraj has a shy at the bowler's end but misses.
