View dismissal P Kumar b Joginder Sharma 1 5 2 0 0 50.00
1.1 oh ramta jogi! He cleans him up first ball, bowling stump-to-stump, getting it to skid on and stay low, beating Praveen who's caught deep in the crease, and knocking back middle and off! What a start for Joginder! 7/1
View dismissal G Gambhir c Joginder Sharma b Mishra 82 131 77 7 1 106.49
28.3 rush of blood does Gambhir in, as he dances down the track and aims to hit over midwicket, but Mishra sees him coming and bowls it flatter and quicker, drawing a top-edge as Gambhir heaves across the line, and it pops up safely into short third man's hands! 158/4
View dismissal K Goel lbw b Joginder Sharma 4 4 5 1 0 80.00
1.6 Jogiya khalli bhalli! Thats Jogi's second in the over, starting and ending with a wicket, this time pitching full on middle and getting it to swing in, Goel plays all around it and gets struck on the pads, that would have taken out leg stump, reckons the umpire ... Jogi and the Blues are ecstatic! 11/2
View dismissal M Kaif* c Rahane b Bose 22 23 19 4 0 115.78
6.5 tight catch! Kaif shuffles in his crease, moving across to off and then driving a fullish delivery to short cover, where Rahane pouches a sharp catch 47/3
View dismissal S Badrinath lbw b Mahesh 55 132 88 0 0 62.50
36.3 gone! This one pitches fuller on middle and leg and slides on, catching Badri on the front leg as he gets a full stride forward and looks to work it to square leg, Mahesh belts out an appeal and the umpire upholds it with not much thought ... but it looked like he got a thin inside-edge ... Badri can consider himself hard-done by that decision 191/7
View dismissal V Kohli c & b Mishra 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
28.4 and that two in two for Mishra! Kohli goes for a first-ball duck as he shapes to work a nicely tossed up delivery across the line, but instead chipping a leading-edge back to the bowler, who takes it low and neat as the Blues fight back with a double-strike! 158/5
View dismissal P Patel lbw b Sehwag 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
29.3 and the captain doesn't take time to strike! Bowls a quicker one outside off, gets it to spin in as Paresh tries to work across the line and misses, hit in front of about middle and off, and the umpire shoots up his finger with little hesitation 159/6
M Rawat not out 43 83 59 2 1 72.88
View dismissal SS Mundhe st †Karthik b Mishra 18 28 26 2 0 69.23
43.4 big legbreak does the trick there, tossed up beautifully by Mishra and Mundhe couldn't resist, charged down the track but missed it completely, Mishra has been one of the most impressive bowlers in the tournament and he's doing a great job here 219/8
View dismissal PP Ojha c Sehwag b Mahesh 20 15 14 2 1 142.85
47.4 slower ball produces a wicket, Yo Mahesh holds it back and Ojha is too early on the shot, spoons a simple catch to Sehwag at midwicket 252/9
View dismissal SK Trivedi run out (Raina) 5 9 4 1 0 125.00
49.3 Mahesh to Rawat, poor, poor running that time and Trivedi has to go. Rawat strikes it hard down the ground and watches Suresh Raina mis-field one at long-on, they go for the second but a direct hit sees him short. 269/10
