View dismissal AM Rahane b Kumar 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 what a start! a big inswinger first up, knocks back the off stump....that surprised everyone. It was quick and fast, Rahane was in no position to play it. 0/1
View dismissal V Sehwag* c Badrinath b Kumar 9 29 19 1 0 47.36
6.2 Praveen Kumar strikes again for India Red...the big wicket of Sehwag, it was struck well on the back foot but played it in the air, Badrinath at cover dives forward and takes a good low catch. 23/2
View dismissal SA Asnodkar c Sharma b Trivedi 19 52 37 2 0 51.35
11.4 a loose shot from Asnodkar...it was wide outside the off stump...driven on the up with no timing to mid off where Ishant Sharma moves a few feet to his left and takes the catch. Trivedi picks up his first wicket. 41/4
View dismissal KD Karthik lbw b Kumar 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
6.3 two in two for Praveen Kumar...picks up his third wicket...It was on a good length and coming in...Karthik plays around it and misses it (trying to work it to the onside) strikes the pad in line, loud shout for an lbw, given by the umpire. 23/3
View dismissal SK Raina c Kohli b Trivedi 92 157 100 7 2 92.00
42.2 Raina goes after a wonderful knock. It was short and Raina pulls in the air to deep midwicket....Kohli running in from the deep, dives forward and pulls off a great catch inches off the ground. Excellent effort that. 202/7
View dismissal NK Patel c Kaif b Ojha 35 71 53 5 0 66.03
28.4 caught at midwicket. A poor shot selection from Neeraj Patel as he comes down the track and mishits it to kaif at midwicket (was looking to go over the fielder positioned there). A good partnership comes to an end. 128/5

View dismissal RS Ricky c Sehwag b Bose 10 47 24 0 0 41.66
10.5 rush of blood sends Ricky back inside! Failing to time the ball all innings, he gets frustrated and charges down the track, hitting a good length delivery straight into Sehwag's lap at mid-off ... simple catch and the Blues have two quick wickets 35/2
View dismissal G Gambhir run out (Sehwag) 0 3 5 0 0 0.00
0.6 from Bose, bad call, good hit! Straighter delivery on off stump, Gambhir shuffles across and flicks it to mid-on, calling for the risky single even as Sehwag collects and fires in a direct throw onto the nonstriker's stumps, knocking them down with Gambhir a couple inches short! A very good throw, aiming from side-on, settles a very silly call for a single and India Blue have struck early 1/1
View dismissal M Kaif* c Asnodkar b Joginder Sharma 42 80 59 8 0 71.18
18.3 oh thats a snorter from Asnodkar! Joginder bowls it short outside off and Kaif latches onto a pull, but Asnodkar times his dive at midwicket brilliantly and intercepts to get rid of a well-set Kaif! The Reds captain departs for 42 from 59 balls 70/3
View dismissal V Kohli b Mishra 30 65 50 2 0 60.00
25.6 bowled 'em! Mishra fizzes up the googly, which pitches marginally outside the line and sneaks back between a clueless Kohli's gap to knock back off stump! Kohli didnt read that ball at all 105/4
View dismissal S Badrinath b Mishra 41 73 52 3 0 78.84
37.3 its the googly again! Second time tonight, Mishra outfoxes the batsman with a well-disguised delivery, which pitches and goes the other way, beating Badri as he shuffles and makes room 153/5
View dismissal M Rawat b Joginder Sharma 47 100 64 1 0 73.43
47.2 Jogiya khalli balli! Rawat gets too adventurous, walking too far across his stumps in an attempt to scoop over fine leg, but ends up flicking the ball onto his stumps! He was trying to be cheeky, but as Pakistan's Misbah-ul-Haq learnt in the Twenty20 final, you cant do that against Jogi! India Red seven down now 221/7
View dismissal P Kumar c Raina b Sehwag 37 40 30 3 1 123.33
46.2 but not this time! Sehwag bowls it quicker and flatter, Praveen is hurried into his attempted pull and the ball bobs up over the infield to long-on, where Raina keeps his eyes on it and takes it safely inside the ropes! 215/6
SS Mundhe not out 12 15 10 0 0 120.00
View dismissal SK Trivedi b Joginder Sharma 1 2 3 0 0 33.33
47.6 cleaned up! Joginder bowls it on a length and Trivedi charges down, heaving widly across the line, missing the ball totally and his off stump gets pegged back! 223/8
