Amla scored a breezy half century and his skipper, joined hands with him and played in his usual flamboyant style. He scored a quickfire 43 from 22 and took his side over the finishing line with more than five overs to spare. For the visitors, De Villiers produced a gem of a knock to take them to 148 but that wasn't enough. In the end, the Bangalore bowlers crumbled under the onslaught launched by the hosts. What a beginning this has been by the home side!

Another terrific display from Punjab and they have marched through to a comprehensive victory! They are making it a habit of chasing down targets with utmost ease. The two openers, Amla and Vohra gave their side the start they wanted. In the sixth over, Amla got a life and Manan fell in the same over later to the guile of Mills. That was the most eventful over of the innings. After that, Chahal sent Patel packing but apart from that, it was complete domination from Amla and Maxwell.
