View dismissal PA Patel c Mahesh b Sehwag 21 20 3 0 105.00
8.1 and he strikes first ball, as Parthiv slashes a short one up in the air straight to the the fielder at short third man, who didn't have to do a thing, just pouch the catch 65/2
View dismissal SP Fleming b Mahesh 13 13 2 0 100.00
3.2 but what a response from the young pace bowler! Off stump is sent cartwheeling as the pitches on a good length and defeats Fleming with the movement, he swings across the line very hard and misses the ball completely ... what a start to the over! 23/1
View dismissal S Vidyut c Mahesh b McGrath 54 37 7 1 145.94
14.5 and he gets Vidyut, slipping in a short one thats targeted at the body, cramping a tired Vidyut for room as he steps outside his crease and shapes to pull but only manages a slap into cover's hands, a good innings on IPL debut is cut short by a master tactician 122/3
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Shoaib Malik b Mohammad Asif 32 27 2 1 118.51
17.1 and he gets Dhoni, who gets down and hammers a low full toss down to long-off, where Malik dives forward and takes an excellent catch low to the grass, that ball was hit very flat but the fielder judged it to perfection 137/4
View dismissal JA Morkel c Sehwag b Bhatia 28 16 3 2 175.00
19.5 got em with a full toss! Morkel sees the freebie and looks to hit it into oblivion but makes a meal of it, instead top-edging to Sehwag, lurking at short third man 163/6
View dismissal SK Raina run out (Sangwan) 3 4 0 0 75.00
18.2 Sangwan to Morkel, well done, boss, right up there in the blockhole and Morkel mistimes the slog to cover, Raina calls for the risky single and Sangwan swoops in to collect and flick the ball onto the stumps to catch him short 145/5
