3.1

Aravind to Klinger, FOUR, craftily done, this was back of a length, cramping him up a bit, and he glances it wide of short fine leg

3.2

Aravind to Klinger, 1 run, another delivery too straight, could have been four past short fine again, but the extra bounce means he is hit on the thigh pad. They take a leg-bye

Kochi Tuskers Kerala 29/0   S Aravind 2-0-13-0

Aravind to Hodge, no run, back of a length, pretty straight, no room, hit back to the bowler

13.3

Aravind to Hodge, OUT, Zaheer has plucked a mango here, and it is mango season too in India. Just about. This was pulled seemingly for four over short fine leg, until Zaheer leapt full length, and stuck his left hand out. Lovely catch

BJ Hodge c Khan b Aravind 5 (17m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

17.1

Aravind to Gomez, no run, length ball, hit back, makes a diving save to his left

17.2

Aravind to Gomez, OUT, slower ball, Gomez didn't have many options but to hit out as he looked out of his depth, and Kohli makes this catch to his right at long-on look simpler than it is

RV Gomez c Kohli b Aravind 7 (15m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 46.66

Aravind to Vinay Kumar, 2 runs, Vinay plays this with soft hands into the leg side where all the fielders are on the boundary, and charges back for the second. He is a smart and aware cricketer, always

17.5

Aravind to Vinay Kumar, 1 run, gets an inside edge onto the pad as he looks to drive, and Jadeja forces him into the single

17.6

Aravind to Jadeja, 1 run, comes down the track, gets a single to long-off
