8.4 Rohit is gone. Flighted delivery, full and on the middle and leg, it dipped rapidly before Rohit could get forward to defend and ran off the inside-edge onto the pad and popped up to the unmanned short leg position and Saha, the 'keeper, rushes across to take a lunging catch 47/4
View dismissal SB Styris b Mohammad Hafeez 6 7 1 0 85.71
11.4 Change of pace and length does the trick. The crowd roar their delight. It was quicker, it was full and Styris yorked himself, trying to tap it to the on side. Cleaned up. 58/5

14.3 caught at long-off. Full and outside off, Arjun went for a lofted drive, this time from the confines of the crease, and holes out at the deep. 71/6

17.6 Vaas is unable to counter the pitch. Again, the ball stopped on the batsman and Vaas tried to check his on drive. Too late. The ball stopped and jumped and went off the leading edge to a delighted Ganguly at covers. 105/8

18.4 Kartik to Singh, Deccan Charges have been shot out for 110. It was tapped to right of point and the throw, from Hafeez, was slightly wide but Saha, the 'keeper, lunged to his right, collected the ball, turned quickly to whip off the bails. Very smart work from him and Knight Riders need 111 to win. 110/10

4.2 Three down and the game hangs in a balance. Vaas takes out the pace off the ball, by rolling his fingers around the seam and Saha, who was looking good, tried to check his off drive. Too late Sir. Caught at mid-off. 21/3
View dismissal BB McCullum c Sharma b Singh 5 5 1 0 100.00

View dismissal RT Ponting lbw b Vaas 0 1 0 0 0.00
2.1 trapped lbw. Ponting is unhappy. The hawk eye says it would gone just over. Not too much. It landed on middle and leg line and straightened. Ponting was on the lunge and was beaten by the straightening. I think he thought it had pitched outside leg, but it hadn't. 16/2
View dismissal SC Ganguly* b Ojha 14 30 1 0 46.66
12.6 The left-arm spinner takes out Ganguly. It doesn't happen often. It was a loopy flighted delivery on the stumps, Ganguly went for a almighty heave across the line and missed it completely 68/4

16.3 The reverse sweep goes awry. He went for a fierce reverse slap but top edged it over covers and Symonds took it running back. Hafeez was playing an counter-attacking game and thought he could get away with the reverse sweep but ... 88/5
