Kochi Tuskers Kerala won by 7 wickets (with 30 balls remaining)
2 May 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Parameswaran to Sehwag, SIX, Blistering hit! Out of the ground! The white ball has sailed into the night. Bye bye! Fullish delivery, outside off stump and Sehwag turns imperious. Full clean swing of the bat and the ball soars over long-off


Parameswaran to Sehwag, no run, And he defends this one. Compact. Solid.


Parameswaran to Sehwag, OUT, Shortish, outside off and Sehwag reaches out for a cut. Well, not quite a cut but a weak waft, as if he was just trying to run it down to third man.Edge and taken by the keeper. The umpires have told him to wait They want to check the no ball. More drama There didn't seem to be any part of the foot behind the line or so it appears to me. May be another replay will clear it up for me. My first reactions on seeing that replay was that it was a no ball. Hope they show another replay. I missed it but lots of you readers have mailed in saying that the replays showed that he landed his foot just behind the line before it slid across.
