View dismissal TL Suman c Carseldine b Trivedi 29 19 3 1 152.63
5.5 Trivedi persists with the short length, and it pays dividends, Suman holes out to midwicket, it was a good-looking shot but Suman managed to pick out the fielder in the deep, Lee Carseldine, who takes a well-judged catch looking into the sun 42/2
View dismissal AC Gilchrist*† lbw b Pathan 10 11 0 1 90.90
3.3 and the decision to bring in spin early works, Gilchrist is gone lbw, he was looking to sweep, misses and is hit on the pads, Rajasthan appeal and the umpire sends him on his way, he was unlucky though, replays show the ball pitched just outside legstump 21/1
View dismissal RG Sharma st †Ojha b Jadeja 9 14 0 0 64.28
9.3 Jadeja provides the breakthrough, soft dismissal, slightly faster in the air, the arm ball accounts for Rohit, who had come down the track and was looking for the turn, there wasn't any and the the batsman is beaten, simple stumping for Naman Ojha, who juggles with the ball a bit before breaking the stumps 70/3
View dismissal A Symonds b Jadeja 30 19 2 1 157.89
11.3 Jadeja's on song today, another big wicket for him, Symonds is bowled, that was very full pitching on legstump, Symonds hadn't been too comfortable against Jadeja all through, he plays around the ball as he tries to flick it, and the legstump is rocked back 83/4
View dismissal DR Smith c Raut b Pathan 47 32 0 4 146.87
19.5 that's the end of Smith, he tried to slog it over long-on, it was a flat, powerful hit but is taken by Raut at the boundary 164/7
View dismissal WPUJC Vaas c Carseldine b Pathan 20 15 0 1 133.33
16.2 Vaas is gone this time, holes out to wide long-on, he was always looking to shuffle down the track right through his innings, he does it again, Yusuf sends down a short ball, Vaas can only swipe it to the waiting Lee Carseldine 120/5
View dismissal Y Venugopal Rao c Jadeja b Warne 12 7 2 0 171.42
18.4 good flight from Warne, Venugopal came down the pitch and lofts it down the ground, only as far as Ravindra Jadeja at long-on 155/6

View dismissal GC Smith lbw b Vaas 1 3 0 0 33.33
1.1 sensational start for Chaminda Vaas, he gets Smith lbw first ball, Smith had taken a step out of the crease and missed the shortish ball, hit on the pads on a middle-stump line, but that hit him very high on the pad, well above the knee roll 5/1
View dismissal SA Asnodkar run out (†Gilchrist/Venugopal Rao) 44 39 6 1 112.82
13.1 from Sharma, and there's a wicket off the first ball, terrible running between the wickets, it was a half-tracker from Rohit, the Asnodkar swiped it to midwicket, Jadeja set off for the second, Asnodkar didn't, then Jadeja stopped, and Asnodkar started to run, Jadeja decides to run as well but Asnodakr was never going to make his ground after that much confusion 83/5
View dismissal LA Carseldine st †Gilchrist b Vaas 8 11 1 0 72.72
3.5 Carseldine is out, a bizarre bit of cricket, Carseldine fails to connect with the ball again, it thuds into his back pad, Gilchrist collects this time and belts out an appeal for caught-behind, Carseldine doesn't realise the keeper has the ball and sets off for a single, Gilchrist whips off the bails and asks the square-leg umpire for a stumping, which is upheld 19/2
View dismissal NV Ojha run out (Ravi Teja) 16 14 2 0 114.28
7.5 from Ojha, superb piece of fielding from Ravi Teja, Naman just chopped the ball towards point and was off for the single, Teja swoops on to it from backward point and throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end, Rajasthan in big trouble here 43/3
View dismissal YK Pathan c Smith b Ojha 6 7 0 0 85.71
11.2 Yusuf holes out, the delighted cries from Deccan show how much they value this wicket, it was a shortish ball from Ojha, Yusuf was down the pitch and he flat bats it toward long-off, where Dwayne Smith completes a simple catch 74/4
RA Jadeja not out 19 20 0 0 95.00
View dismissal AS Raut b Sharma 1 2 0 0 50.00
13.4 Rohit continues to be among the wickets, this was a much quicker ball, full and on legstump, Raut played all over it and the ball crashes into legstump, Rajasthan are into free fall here 85/6
View dismissal M Morkel c Ravi Teja b Sharma 8 8 1 0 100.00
15.2 well, if Rohit Sharma keeps this up he'll soon be in the running for the Purple Cap, this was tossed up by him, well outside off, Morkel gets down on his knee and sweeps hard, a top-edge takes it t square leg where the waiting fielder takes a catch 96/7
View dismissal SK Warne* b Sharma 0 1 0 0 0.00
15.4 no need to bother, the golden arm of Rohit strikes again, Warne gave himself a ridiculous amount of room, Rohit didn't bother about that, he kept it on offstump, Warne misses, offstump is on the ground, the ball stayed a bit low 97/8
View dismissal SK Trivedi b Singh 1 5 0 0 20.00
16.3 pushes it fuller this time, Trivedi backs away, and doesn't get anywhere near that delivery, the legstump goes for a walk, only one more wicket needed by Deccan now 98/9
View dismissal MM Patel run out (Suman/†Gilchrist) 5 7 0 0 71.42
19.3 from Ojha, and that's the end of that, another woeful mix-up has Munaf being run out, Munaf poked it towards backward point and set off for a single, though it had gone straight to the fielder, he was sent back but the throw was right over the stumps and Gilchrist takes off the bails with Munaf well short 113/10
