View dismissal CA Pujara run out (Pandey) 8 9 8 1 0 100.00
1.4 Morkel to Sehwag, stays dead still and pushes away from the body. The fullish delivery is inside edged onto pad and skews out towards point. They want the single but Pandey swoops in from point and hits direct. Pujara is caught short. So from celebrating the overthow going to the boundary, Punjab are one down 9/1
View dismissal V Sehwag b Chawla 37 65 30 3 1 123.33
13.6 googly goes through and Sehwag looks woefully at his middle stump that's taken a battering. Foxed him all ends up and with his penchant for lead feet, Sehwag and his feeble prod bad no choice. That's also the time out 103/6
View dismissal WP Saha lbw b Kallis 14 11 10 1 1 140.00
4.1 Kallis and his golden arm strikes! Saha was walking right across his stumps and is found in front of middle and leg. Starts with a full one that tails in just a touch, Saha was playing a little around his front pad and pays the price 28/2
View dismissal GJ Maxwell b Morkel 15 14 12 2 0 125.00
7.4 leg stump cartwheels and KKR erupt! He was moving well across outside off to try and pick it away fine. But this is a gorgeous yorker from Morkel and when he doesn't hit, it's timber. Gamble pays off. Maxi has been playing extravagant shots to great results, but this was just a little too much 58/3
View dismissal DA Miller c Morkel b Chawla 14 12 10 2 0 140.00
9.4 there's another tactical victory for Gauti. Miller races down to the googly and slogs it. Gets it right off the bottom of the bat and Morkel, the tallest bloke in the park, collects a safe, jogging catch at long-on 74/4
View dismissal GJ Bailey* c Morkel b Chawla 11 13 15 1 0 73.33
13.4 the frustration gets to him. Tossed up on middle and Bailey slams him down the ground. It's a big boundary there and Morkel is patrolling it. Takes a reverse cup supremely comfortably 101/5
R Dhawan not out 19 30 18 2 0 105.55
View dismissal AR Patel st †Uthappa b Narine 7 19 10 0 0 70.00
18.1 it happened like clockwork. Lured him out of his crease with a flighted delivery, but it pitches and turns across him. Patel had no clue as he wafts at it. No connection made and the keeper whips off the bails. All too easy 126/7
View dismissal MG Johnson b Narine 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
18.2 through him first ball! Reaches forward but he has a big gap between bat and pad as he played down the wrong line. The ball turns in and off stump is knocked back 126/8
View dismissal L Balaji lbw b Narine 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
18.4 that's three in the over! Balaji goes for a sweep across the line and is caught in front of middle. This pitched on a good length and skidded onto him, strikes on the knee-roll and that's a pretty easy decision for Umpire Dharmasena 126/9

View dismissal MK Pandey lbw b Sandeep Sharma 8 11 10 1 0 80.00
2.4 that's been given! This time it's the indipper and Pandey was pushing down the wrong line. A lovely length from the bowler, he knows his strength is swing and sticks to it. Half-push forward and is struck around the knee-roll. 13/1
View dismissal JH Kallis c Maxwell b Balaji 9 27 11 2 0 81.81
5.1 and he strikes straight away! Punjab are making a fight of this! This was a good length ball outside off, Kallis goes forward and unleashes one of his square drives. But he fails to keep it to ground and Maxwell makes no mistake 19/3
View dismissal G Gambhir* c Patel b Sandeep Sharma 1 9 5 0 0 20.00
4.1 not a duck this time, but is that enough of a silver lining for the KKR captain though. Oh, but wait we're checking the bowler's front foot now. It was a length ball on middle, Gambhir cleared his front leg and looked to slash it through the covers. The bat face turns on impact and he holes out to short extra cover 19/2
View dismissal CA Lynn b Patel 13 32 18 2 0 72.22
11.1 the stumps are in disarray! It was quick and flat and Lynn's expansive hit down the ground amounts to worse than nothing. Punjab's players are skipping about here 50/4
View dismissal RV Uthappa run out (Bailey) 19 35 27 2 0 70.37
12.6 from Dhawan, legcutter outside off. Uthappa dabs into the covers and sets off. But Bailey swoops in, picks up and throws in one motion and has hit the base of the stumps. Uthappa had almost given up 62/6
View dismissal YK Pathan lbw b Dhawan 3 5 5 0 0 60.00
12.3 this stays low after darting in at the pads. Pathan was trying to flick across the line and has been judged leg before. Would have clipped leg stump 59/5
View dismissal SA Yadav c Johnson b Sandeep Sharma 34 29 17 3 1 200.00
17.3 that's the end of that then. Back of a length and outside off, he looks to force the pace with a loft over the off side. Hits him a little too high on the bat and cover makes no mistake. Fooled by the shorter ball 103/9
View dismissal PP Chawla st †Saha b Patel 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
13.4 races down the track and he looks for a loft it over the covers. But this goes on with the arm and the keeper pulls off a smart stumping 65/7
View dismissal SP Narine b Johnson 6 11 8 0 0 75.00
15.6 off stump is uprooted and Johnson roars! Goes full and Narine was backing away and looking to loft it over the covers. The batsman misses, Johnson hits. Bet he remembered Narine making a fool of him in the first innnings. That's the time out now 85/8
View dismissal UT Yadav b Johnson 2 15 4 0 0 50.00
18.2 slower ball cleans up middle stump. It was full, Umesh was not interested in getting in line as he offers a terrible excuse of a shot. Rooted to the crease and soundly beaten as he played inside the line 109/10
