View dismissal YK Pathan run out (de Villiers) 8 13 1 0 61.53
3.1 Maharoof to Smith, stepped out of the crease and away from the stumps to play inside out, the ball just rolls down towards mid-off and AB de Villiers runs in and dives full length in the air to hit the stump before Yusuf to get back into the crease 11/1
View dismissal GC Smith c Mahesh b Mishra 24 27 3 0 88.88
10.4 catch of the tournament? Mishra flights it on middle and leg, Smith goes for the slog with the turn but doesn't get enough elevation to clear the boundary near deep midwicket, Yomahesh runs across from long-on and catches it just inches from the turf, that was simply stunning 86/3
View dismissal M Kaif run out (Sehwag/†Karthik) 1 5 0 0 20.00
4.6 McGrath to Smith, Unbelievable! Smith pulled to midwicket where it was collected quickly by Sehwag. But Smith was already running down the track while Kaif was still standing at the other end. Easy run-out as Sehwag lobs the ball to the keeper 15/2
View dismissal SR Watson run out (†Karthik) 74 40 5 5 185.00
18.2 Maharoof to NK Patel, confusion! Patel gigs out a yorker top the off side and sets off for a risky run, Watson is sent back and he's miles out of his crease as the throw misses the stumps, they take a run anyway off the overthrow but Watson's really struggling to make his ground at the striker's end, the throw to Karthik is accurate and he whips off the bails. Now here's the drama - Delhi celebrate but umpire Steve Davis refuses to call for the third umpire, Delhi fielders are really peeved and Sehwag has a word with umpire Koertzen, Watson is also fuming about the situation, as if to suggest they get on with the game, finally the third umpire is called and gives Watson the marching orders. 150/7
View dismissal RA Jadeja b Mishra 6 6 1 0 100.00
12.2 the googly! The ball pitches on middle and turns away slightly, Jadeja gets on his knee to sweep it square but plays too early as the ball strikes the offstump 99/4
View dismissal AD Mascarenhas b Sehwag 9 8 0 1 112.50
15.3 Sehwag cleverly cuts back on the pace and gives it plenty of air, Mascaranhas misses as he goes for the slog and the ball crashes onto leg and middle stump 127/5
View dismissal SK Warne* b Maharoof 11 12 1 0 91.66
