GOOD TAKE BY CHRIS GAYLE! Floated delivery around off and lures Patel in an ambitious drive. He accepts the invitation and goes for a full blooded drive on the up. Chris Gayle at short cover is sharp as a hawk and takes a brilliant catch. Patel’s struggle comes to an end and Bangalore are off to a great start.2.3 overs: OUT! The ploy to send in the pinch hitter backfires! Full toss on off, McClenaghan goes for the slog but mistimes it towards Mandeep Singh at wide long on. He is calm over there and pouches it safely. What a start this has been for the hosts and Badree is on a roll. He is on a hat-trick and ruling the roost at the moment. The visitors need 136 from 105 balls.2.4 overs: OUT! BADREE, YOU BEAUTY! Gets to his hat-trick in style! Slips in a googly around off, spins in sharply. Sharma strides forward to defend but doesn’t pick up the googly. Plays down the wrong line and the ball goes through the gap between his bat and pad to dislodge the stumps.
