View dismissal K Goel run out (Jadeja/Asnodkar) 0 0 0 0 -
0.1 Kamran Khan to Bopara, wicket first ball, for the second time today after Kallis in the first game. This is a run-out, after Bopara is beaten by an inswinger. Goel wants a quick leg-bye, Bopara sees Jadeja swoop in quickly from square leg and refuses to run. Jadeja throw it to Asnodkar, who backs up from mi-off and finds Goel short 0/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara run out (†Rawat) 60 51 7 1 117.64
18.6 from Kamran Khan, and he is run out, poor thinking by Chawla, Sanga is beaten by the short delivery, but wants to come through for a bye, but Chawla doesn't respond, and Sanga is caught yards short. Agreed there wasn't a single there, but Chawla should have sacrificed his wicket to keep Sanga on strike 130/6

6.1 and Munaf strikes first ball too, what does Warnie tell them, four overs from this end, and three first deliveries have resulted in wickets. this was a superb delivery, length ball, on off, seamed away, and Yuvraj hung his rod, and Rawat caught the edge 38/3

8.2 No. 2 for Munaf, this is pure pressure, just short of a length, Mahela looks to loft over mid-off, the ball stops a touch, and Mahela has to check the shot, but he ends up lobbing it straight to mid-off 48/4
View dismissal IK Pathan b Kamran Khan 39 33 2 2 118.18
18.1 If Warne can't, his prodigy will, off the inside edge, this is full and fast, and Irfan looks to go off side, but is late into it, and gets a thick inside edge onto the stumps. This will pull Punjab back after a superb partnership 123/5

View dismissal SA Asnodkar c Powar b Pathan 3 4 0 0 75.00
1.1 and Irfan's good night continues, short, Asnodkar goes for the pull, but there is some extra bounce that gets his top-edge, straight to Powar at mid-on, it's game on 7/1
View dismissal GC Smith c †Sangakkara b Pathan 2 6 0 0 33.33
1.5 what a beauty, perfect delivery for a left-arm swing bowler, just short of a driving length, pitching off, and then moving away, and kissing the bat on the way... perfect, what ba start for Irfan, two wickets in one over following his 39 with the bat 9/2
View dismissal RJ Quiney c †Sangakkara b Abdulla 7 8 1 0 87.50
4.1 this happens to you only on a very lucky day, this one was angled down leg, slipping away, Quiney looks to flick it for four, but there is a noise as it passes him, and the keeper goes up, and he is given. Lucky wicket, but Rajasthan in deep trouble now 23/3
View dismissal YK Pathan c Goel b Chawla 10 13 2 0 76.92
6.4 the big man sinks, what a huge wicket, Yusuf looks for the trademark sweep, but the ball pitches too close to him, and outside off, it takes the top edge that lobs straight to short fine, and will we have an encore of Rajasthan's 58 all out against Bangalore? 36/5
View dismissal AD Mascarenhas b Abdulla 4 2 1 0 200.00
4.3 Abdulla strikes again, lovely offcutter, pitches on leg stump, just short of a length, Dimi looks to defend but plays inside the line, the offcut beats the bat, and takes the top of off. Superb show by Punjab's left-arm seamers 27/4
View dismissal RA Jadeja b Abdulla 37 44 2 0 84.09
18.1 timber! Jadeja, desperate Jadeja, steps out, is beaten by a swinging yorker. Stumps are splayed 102/7
View dismissal AS Raut c Powar b Chawla 1 4 0 0 25.00
8.4 this one shows Raut has no clue what Chawla is bowling, steps out, finds himself short of the pitch of the ball, gives it his all, his all takes it up miles into the air, and towards Powar at mid-off, who makes good ground to hold on to this steepler 42/6
