View dismissal JD Ryder c Tiwary b Pathan 1 6 0 0 16.66
1.2 well, it took Ryder exactly one ball to go after Yusuf. And he's failed. Looks to shimmy a foot towards leg stump to create room, and tries to hoist him straight. He ends up scooping it straight up and it's a tame catch inside the circle for mid-off 9/1
View dismissal MK Pandey lbw b Iqbal Abdulla 16 12 3 0 133.33
3.3 what joy to watch the classic left-arm deception work in the hit and giggle format! Abdulla has laid a trap with the first two balls, and Pandey walks into it. The first ball turned away a mile, the second one was tossed up and got Pandey reaching across to smother it. This time, Abdulla shortens the length and slips in the armer. Pandey had no clue, got half across and groped outside the line. The ball shot through and hit him in front of middle and leg. Plumb. 17/2
View dismissal CJ Ferguson st †Goswami b Shakib Al Hasan 16 19 2 0 84.21
8.3 the ball of the century did not turn as much as this one did. This is some pitch! Three wickets to spin, and Pune continue to wobble. Shakib delivers it round-arm from wide of the crease, gets it to lands short of a length outside off as Ferguson advances. He's already fooled by the length, and he's about to be flabbergasted by the turn. The ball went away as if it doesn't agree with physics. Goswami does the rest. Ferguson won't ever comprehend what the ball did there. 44/3
View dismissal SC Ganguly c Pathan b Shakib Al Hasan 18 22 0 1 81.81
12.2 Shakib deserved Ganguly's scalp and there is some justice in the world. The Bangla tiger has nailed the Bengal tiger. Tame, tame dismissal. Loopy ball on off and breaking in, Ganguly looks to reach across and lap it around to the leg side, but slaps it straight to Yusuf at backward square leg. He did well to time his jump and haul it in. 71/4
View dismissal RV Uthappa c Lee b Pathan 12 19 1 0 63.15
13.6 another wicket, another one falls to spin. Uthappa gets a short ball turning down the leg side and unleashes the strong slog whack through the leg side, but he decides to go flat. Would have still cleared the rope if Lee wasn't prowling in the deep. He was, though. 79/5
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh* c †Goswami b Balaji 24 26 2 0 92.30
19.3 Last-over Lakshmipathy has a wicket! Sends down a surprise short ball angling across Yuvraj, who is late on the dragged pull. Top edge, spirals up, and Goswami settles under it. They check if it was a no-ball, but that's clean. Bala had some part of the foot behind the line. 113/6
View dismissal S Rana b Balaji 18 16 2 0 112.50
19.6 Balaji, zara dheere chalo! The smiling assassin has bowled a memorable final over and finished off with a lovely little yorker. If you can keep it that full, you don't need pace. That landed at Rana's toes even as he searched in vain for any little room. There was none, he misses the heave, and leg stump fell back. 118/7

View dismissal SP Goswami c †Uthappa b Thomas 6 3 1 0 200.00
0.4 Thomas finally lands one on an acceptable line and immediately strikes. Good ball, Thomas has this ability to get it to kick up from short of a length. It got big as it angled across Goswami who went for an airy feel without quite riding the bounce. Guided straight into the keeper's gloves. 7/1
View dismissal MK Tiwary b Kumar 24 24 1 1 100.00
7.3 Tiwary's innings has been full of adventure. And it has ended in unusual style too. Loopy short ball well outside off, tempts him into the pull but it was really too short and too wide, and he ended up chopping it onto the stumps. Ryder hurries across from point, and has another friendly word with Tiwary. 53/2
View dismissal YK Pathan c Ganguly b Parnell 29 25 3 1 116.00
15.4 and once again, Ganguly says it ain't over until it is over. It can't end without another one of my little moments of confounding brilliance. Yusuf is gone, Dada has taken a screamer at mid-off to send him back. Full length ball on middle, Yusuf doesn't get forward and looks to loft and it balloons away wide of mid-off. Ganguly moves away as swiftly as a 40-year old can, to his left, puts out both hands as he tumbles and takes it as he lands and rolls. Try and keep this man out of the game. 117/3
