View dismissal NV Ojha c †Madan b Singh 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 he's a goner, nice delivery, back of a length and kicks from there, Ojha is on the front foot already and edges it behind for an easy catch 0/1
RV Uthappa not out 157 214 148 11 6 106.08
View dismissal SH Marathe c Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 36 62 32 4 1 112.50
13.3 and as we speak he is also taking an easy catch at short fine to send back Marathe, who goes to sweep from a leg-stump line and top-edges, is done by the extra bounce 79/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh* c Sodhi b Rana 17 47 39 0 0 43.58
25.6 Yuvraj's patchy innings comes to an end, lofts a length delivery on the up, doesn't get enough into it and holes out to long-off; this is much Soun Sharma's wicket as it is Rana's who actually got it 136/3
View dismissal SK Raina c Kaif b Pankaj Singh 28 32 24 2 0 116.66
34.1 soft dismissal, length ball, throws his arms at it, and drives it low to Kaif at short extra cover; Raina is livid, Pankaj is delighted 180/4
View dismissal PC Valthaty b Pankaj Singh 18 27 23 2 0 78.26
40.2 cleans him up, that on-side field works, Paul looks to make room and misses a straight length delivery 219/5
View dismissal AA Chavan b Harbhajan Singh 10 17 17 1 0 58.82
44.3 does him in with a doosra, flights it around off, draws him into the drive. Chavan plays for the spin but this one breaks in to the left-hander, and disturbs the furniture 246/6
View dismissal A Chandila c Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 3 7 6 0 0 50.00
46.1 plays the one shot he seems to know, extra bounce gets the top edge and it carries to Dhoni at deep fine leg, who doesn't have to move much for this catch 254/7
View dismissal MG Mangela c Pankaj Singh b Harbhajan Singh 4 9 7 0 0 57.14
48.5 another wicket down, goes on the sweep, gets a top edge, which lobs to short third man for a simple catch 275/8

View dismissal C Madan b Chavan 85 171 126 9 0 67.46
41.4 bowled him round the legs, Madan went too far across the stumps for the sweep, this pitched leg and straightened a touch to take the leg stump - well played Madan, but he ran out of partners 191/9
View dismissal MS Bisla run out (Valthaty) 10 15 11 2 0 90.90
3.4 Netravalkar to Madan, he is gone, silly run, played straight to short midwicket, and both the batsmen are convinced there is a run; the fielder, Valthaty, isn't and hits down the stumps at striker's end with Bisla way short 14/1
View dismissal M Kaif lbw b Yuvraj Singh 32 51 34 5 0 94.11
16.1 and he strikes first ball, what a bowler, Kaif plays inside the line this time, and is caught on the crease, it looked pretty plumb 88/2
View dismissal MS Dhoni c & b Yuvraj Singh 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
16.2 is Yuvi on a hat-trick? Dhoni is not walking, it's a caught-and-bowled that Yuvi is claiming, Dhoni plays early at the ball, and Yuvi's fingers spoon under the ball and the third umpire confirms it. Yuvraj Singh is ecstatic 88/3
View dismissal Shafiq Khan c Raina b Chavan 6 18 19 0 0 31.57
21.2 and another one goes, the shackles put on them in the last few overs have worked, Shafiq steps out and looks to make room, but is too close to the pitch and can't get the elevation while going over extra cover, where Raina takes a safe catch 105/4
View dismissal S Rana run out (Chavan) 2 6 7 0 0 28.57
23.2 Chavan to Madan, Rana is unfortunate here, hit back towards the bowler gets a finger onto it, and Rana, backing up, doesn't get back in time - he has to go back for having done nothing wrong 110/5
View dismissal RS Sodhi c Uthappa b Yuvraj Singh 11 18 15 0 0 73.33
28.6 soft dismissal here, short and he goes for the cut again, slight extra bounce perhaps, and it goes straight to Uthappa at cover-point - Madan must be feeling isolated in this fight 133/6
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh* c Valthaty b Kulkarni 9 21 15 1 0 60.00
34.5 he has holed out to deep square leg, walks out, connects and it goes straight to Valthaty, the end seems nigh 155/7
View dismissal RP Singh b Netravalkar 6 16 10 0 0 60.00
37.4 plays a round a straight delivery, and his leg stump is out - Air India Blue two wickets away from the Corporate Trophy, what a big day for them 169/8

View dismissal S Sharma lbw b Chavan 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
41.5 it's all over, he is lbw, with a ball turning into him - hugs and handshakes all around, Uthappa, Mangela and Valthaty take out stumps as souvenirs 191/10
