Patel to Valthaty,
Paul holes out to deep midwicket. It was a shortish delivery, not quite a bouncer, but on the middle and leg stump line and that does Paul in. He goes for a swat pull but gets more elevation than distance (sorry about that cliche!) and Blizzard waits for it to arrive at the boundary.

Malinga to Gilchrist,
The bouncer works. He was hit on the helmet by Malinga's last lifter. This one was on the leg-stump line and Gilchrist is very late on the pull. He just about feathers it to the keeper.

Patel to Marsh,
Magnificent catch from Pollard. Absolutely awesome. Shaun had killed that shortish ball with a violent pull. Pollard rushed to his right at deep midwicket and lunged out to take it so safely with both hands. He stands, turns towards the crowd and holds his arms aloft. Fabulicious effort.

Patel to Hussey,
Spontaneous combustion time! He leaned forward to pick out mid-off with his aerial off drive.

Malinga to Mandeep Singh,
Mandeep is run out. He just about stabbed a slower one to the leg side, say towards short mid-on region. He ran but Malinga rushed. Malinga picked up, turned and swoooshed it across for a direct hit at the non-striker's end.

Patel to Karthik,
Viv Richards or Yashpal Sharma? In the end its just DK! He walked across the stumps and wafted the full delivery up in the air. Almost ala King Viv and Yashpal, who played that shot in that 1983 tourney, but this time, unlike those two, DK doesn't get the distance. He has been snapped up at deep backward square-leg
KD Karthik c Blizzard b Patel 31 (24b 4x4 1x6) SR: 129.16
Patel to Harris,
Pollard again. Munaf again. Again and again. Ryan lifted this slower length delivery to right of long-on and Pollard rushed forward to his right and lunged out to take a low catch. He is delighted. Munna bhai too is delirious.
RJ Harris c Pollard b Patel 6 (4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 150.00
Malinga to Kumar,
The off stump has gone for some cardio training. PK moved outside leg and had a swing. And a miss. It was the slower one and the off stump went cartwheeling.
P Kumar b Malinga 2 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00
