Pathan to Ryder,
well, it took Ryder exactly one ball to go after Yusuf. And he's failed. Looks to shimmy a foot towards leg stump to create room, and tries to hoist him straight. He ends up scooping it straight up and it's a tame catch inside the circle for mid-off
JD Ryder c Tiwary b Pathan 1 (6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66
Iqbal Abdulla to Pandey,
what joy to watch the classic left-arm deception work in the hit and giggle format! Abdulla has laid a trap with the first two balls, and Pandey walks into it. The first ball turned away a mile, the second one was tossed up and got Pandey reaching across to smother it. This time, Abdulla shortens the length and slips in the armer. Pandey had no clue, got half across and groped outside the line. The ball shot through and hit him in front of middle and leg. Plumb.

Shakib Al Hasan to Ferguson,
the ball of the century did not turn as much as this one did. This is some pitch! Three wickets to spin, and Pune continue to wobble. Shakib delivers it round-arm from wide of the crease, gets it to lands short of a length outside off as Ferguson advances. He's already fooled by the length, and he's about to be flabbergasted by the turn. The ball went away as if it doesn't agree with physics. Goswami does the rest. Ferguson won't ever comprehend what the ball did there.
CJ Ferguson st †Goswami b Shakib Al Hasan 16 (19b 2x4 0x6) SR: 84.21
Shakib Al Hasan to Ganguly,
Shakib deserved Ganguly's scalp and there is some justice in the world. The Bangla tiger has nailed the Bengal tiger. Tame, tame dismissal. Loopy ball on off and breaking in, Ganguly looks to reach across and lap it around to the leg side, but slaps it straight to Yusuf at backward square leg. He did well to time his jump and haul it in.
SC Ganguly c Pathan b Shakib Al Hasan 18 (22b 0x4 1x6) SR: 81.81
Pathan to Uthappa,
another wicket, another one falls to spin. Uthappa gets a short ball turning down the leg side and unleashes the strong slog whack through the leg side, but he decides to go flat. Would have still cleared the rope if Lee wasn't prowling in the deep. He was, though.
RV Uthappa c Lee b Pathan 12 (19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 63.15
Balaji to Yuvraj Singh,
Last-over Lakshmipathy has a wicket! Sends down a surprise short ball angling across Yuvraj, who is late on the dragged pull. Top edge, spirals up, and Goswami settles under it. They check if it was a no-ball, but that's clean. Bala had some part of the foot behind the line.
Yuvraj Singh c †Goswami b Balaji 24 (26b 2x4 0x6) SR: 92.30
Balaji to Rana,
Balaji, zara dheere chalo! The smiling assassin has bowled a memorable final over and finished off with a lovely little yorker. If you can keep it that full, you don't need pace. That landed at Rana's toes even as he searched in vain for any little room. There was none, he misses the heave, and leg stump fell back.
S Rana b Balaji 18 (16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 112.50
