View dismissal AC Gilchrist*† c sub (LR Shukla) b Hodge 43 31 5 2 138.70
9.2 a timely wicket for Kolkata, tossed up outside off, a little slower through the air, reached for it and tried to sweep it square, it turned, went off the top edge and sailed towards Laxmi Shukla at deep square leg who judged it well diving to his right, though it did seem for a second it would pop out, but he clasped it well in the end 68/1
View dismissal HH Gibbs c Hussey b Kartik 28 34 3 0 82.35
12.3 Kartik strikes! Bowled it short on middle, a long hop that should have been dismissed but Gibbs didn't get the elevation, rocked back and pulled it straight to Hussey at deep midwicket 85/2
View dismissal TL Suman run out (Agarkar/Hodge) 31 24 3 1 129.16
16.2 Agarkar to Symonds, run out, good one, yorker length on the off, thumped down towards long-off, accurate throw from Hodge at the non-striker's end, Suman is struggling to reach, Agarkar collects well, clips off the bails to find Suman just short 116/3
View dismissal A Symonds run out (Mashrafe Mortaza) 18 13 0 1 138.46
17.1 from Mashrafe Mortaza, run out, he's bowled a superb yorker, dug out into the off side and rushes off, Mashrafe runs forward, collects and throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end despite Symonds blocking his view to find him well short, big wicket, a potentially decisive one, he's overstepped through, concedes a freehit, but what a big scalp 128/4
