View dismissal G Vignesh b Mohammad Sami 6 10 5 1 0 120.00
2.2 timber. Sami has his man as Vignesh is backing away even as the ball is being bowled and pays the penalty as he fails to read the length and is looking to loft it away but all he manages to get is an edge onto his off stump. The look on Law's face said it all 19/1
View dismissal RP Arnold b Saqlain Mushtaq 26 35 18 3 0 144.44
9.5 the wily magician is at it now. Saqlain bowls a doosra outside the off stump, Arnold picks it off the pitch and is looking to defend it but it breaches all the barriers and takes out the off-stump. Isn't Saqlain ecstatic ? 85/3
View dismissal HK Badani b Saqlain Mushtaq 37 47 29 2 1 127.58
15.4 Saqlain has his man. Badani, is looking to come down the track and loft it away over long-off. He fails to read the straight delivery and is castled. Doesn't the wicket come at the right time for the Badshahs? 135/4

7.4 deceived by the slower ball. Farhat, comes forward and is looking to cut it away but gets a top edge that flies straight to Arnold at point. Is this the break that the Superstars were looking for? Well lets wait and watch 75/3

4.2 fuller on the leg stump, Rana can do nothing but clip it straight into the hands of Law at midwicket and is angry at himself for playing that shot. Will this be the beginning of a collapse? I hope not 47/2
