View dismissal AM Rahane st †Uthappa b Narine 46 57 41 4 1 112.19
13.3 another appeal for a stumping, but Rahane seems to have his back foot planted down behind the crease. Oh wait, replays indicate otherwise. Good bowling from Narine, going wider outside off when he sees the batsman making room outside leg. Rahane cuts at it desperately, and is fast losing balance now. He tries dragging his foot back and then he has no choice but to lift it up and plonk it down and it is at that very moment that Uthappa breaks the stumps. Lucky break 112/2
View dismissal RA Tripathi b Chawla 38 32 23 7 0 165.21
7.5 through him and Chawla gives him a kiss too. This is the googly, quicker, flatter. Tempts Tripathi into a cut, which suggests he was looking for the ball to spin away. And when it doesn't, he just inside edges it onto his stumps 65/1
SPD Smith* not out 51 56 37 4 1 137.83
View dismissal MS Dhoni st †Uthappa b Kuldeep Yadav 23 16 11 1 2 209.09
17.2 topples him with the googly! Kuldeep rises above the pressure! This is the 18th over, and MS Dhoni is on strike. He mauls spinners. And he comes down the track looking to do the same to young Kuldeep. But the left-arm wristspinner sneaks in the googly, makes sure it is flat and pitches it on a length that Dhoni can't get under. Best of all, Kuldeep sees Dhoni unable to pick the variation and though he tries to adjust, the ball spins past his defences and Uthappa does the rest 148/3
View dismissal MK Tiwary st †Uthappa b Kuldeep Yadav 1 1 2 0 0 50.00
17.5 it's the wrong 'un again and another batsman fails to pick it. Uthappa goes up for a stumping and he's pretty confident. And the replays show why. Tiwary, who has been a prolific hitter for Pune, down the order has been sent packing. Pays the price for lunging at a flighted ball, thinking it would turn into him, playing across the line, and allowing it to sneak through bat and pad 150/4
View dismissal DT Christian c Pandey b Yadav 16 12 6 0 2 266.66
19.6 full toss on middle stump, Christian looks for the big hit, but he picks out deep midwicket. All said and done though, this is a pretty good total 182/5

View dismissal SP Narine run out (Thakur/†Dhoni) 16 11 11 3 0 145.45
2.4 Washington Sundar to Gambhir, they go up for a run out. And, guess what! That's gone by a comfortable distance. Great piece of fielding from the short fine leg fielder. Gambhir tucks it late and they take off for a single. Narine is not quick enough as Shardul Thakur at short fine dives forward and hurls a throw to MS Dhoni who just flicks it on to the stumps. Helps it on its way in true Dhoni style 20/1
View dismissal G Gambhir* c Thakur b Christian 62 83 46 6 1 134.78
17.4 is that another one? Yes, it is. Gambhir this time, trying to pull one away but there was really no room for it. And it bounces too much for him too, skewed off the top edge straight into the hands on mid-on 179/3
View dismissal RV Uthappa c Tripathi b Unadkat 87 66 47 7 6 185.10
16.5 gone. Uthappa tries to finish it off with one final big flourish. It is short of a length, slower ball from Unadkat, who had rolled his fingers over it. Uthappa backs away and tries to slap it away with a flat bat, gets it off the top part of the bat to long-off, skews it in the air and sends it into the hands of Tripathi who runs back a few steps and snaffles it 178/2
