View dismissal CH Gayle b Kallis 25 17 16 0 3 156.25
3.3 smoking guns! Kallis hits back in style! Inch-perfect yorker at 138 kph, homing in on the spot between the back foot and leg stump. Gayle's huge backlift gives it the opening, and by the time the bat came down for the drive, leg stump was juddered out of its groove. 28/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan st †Haddin b Bhatia 18 52 21 2 0 85.71
10.3 appeal for the stumping, and the third umpire is pressed into service. Interesting piece of action there. Short of a length, just outside off stump. Dilhan was looking to force the cut away, but couldn't get anything on it. The ball whizzed into Haddin's gloves, he was standing up to the stumps. He collected and began to appeal for a catch, and at that very moment, Dilshan lifted the back foot just for a moment as he completed his bat swing. Haddin noticed it and removed the bails in a trice. Dilshan's on his way, and that's really nifty work from Haddin. 71/4
View dismissal V Kohli c Gambhir b Lee 0 4 4 0 0 0.00
4.2 RCB in trouble, Kohli is gone for a blob. Short from Lee, impressive bounce from back of a length and angling in to Kohli - he didn't really enjoy this line of attack in West Indies. Again, he is stuck on the crease, not entirely back as he looks to work it to the leg side, and closes the bat pace early. Leading edge pops up into the covers. 29/2
View dismissal SS Tiwary c ten Doeschate b Pathan 19 23 18 1 1 105.55
9.2 Saurabh holes out. Once again, Yusuf gets among the wickets. That was marginally short, but Yusuf has this habit of coming on faster than the batsmen would anticipate. Saurabh sees the short ball and goes for the pull, but ends up hauling it in the air to deep midwicket. 62/3
View dismissal MA Agarwal c Pathan b Iqbal Abdulla 13 11 7 0 2 185.71
11.5 this Mayank can't handle more than two dot balls in a row by the looks of it. His team is in trouble, but he's hit every other ball for six, and now perished while looking for a needless stroke. Flatter from Abdulla, that hurried in even as Mayank looked to pull and he found Yusuf at midwicket in the circle. He takes a blinder. 81/5
View dismissal M Kaif lbw b Iqbal Abdulla 5 13 9 0 0 55.55
13.1 harsh call? Abdulla has two wickets in two overs, and Kaif's gone now. Full ball angling in again from wide of the crease, round the stumps. Kaif got forward and across, in an attempt to sweep with the angle, and missed. Was he hit outside the line? The umpire didn't think so. And he was right. Hit in front of off. 91/6
View dismissal DL Vettori* c Mohammed Shami b Unadkat 44 42 23 5 2 191.30
19.6 If Vettori had hit this for 6, he'd have reached 50 and this would have been THE perfect innings. He falls just short though. Another short ball, he pulls high but doesn't manage to get enough muscle into it, and it is taken at deep midwicket. 169/9
View dismissal RR Bhatkal c Pathan b Lee 25 25 18 2 1 138.88
18.3 Bhatkal is gone after playing a little gem here. Short ball from Lee, much faster than anything Bhatkal has faced, and he is hopelessly out of position to pull. It pops up to midwicket, and Yusuf manages to hang on to the sitter. 152/7
View dismissal J Syed Mohammad c Pathan b Unadkat 8 6 4 2 0 200.00
19.3 Syed whips uppishly without timing, and Yusuf takes a tumbling, low catch square on the leg side. He calls it out, Syed takes his word and walks. Spirit of Cricket award, anyone? 163/8

View dismissal BJ Haddin c Kohli b Vettori 42 31 27 5 2 155.55
7.2 Haddin does a Mark Waugh. He's played some sublime strokes and plays another one straight to the fielder. Tossed up, eliciting the drive, Haddin gets to it and makes good contact, but hits it straight at Kohli at cover. He catches, waves his arms about and bad-mouths the man at point. I think he wasn't cursing at him, but just at the world in general. Not sure why. 62/1
