View dismissal AC Gilchrist*† c Jayawardene b Srivastava 33 12 4 2 275.00
2.6 against the run of play! Short again from the left-armer, Gilchrist was into the pull, probably a little early and it took the top edge and ballooned to short midwicket, where Mahela Jayawardene took a nice running catch. Big wicket - Gilchrist looked menacing in those 17 minutes. 43/1
VVS Laxman retired hurt 10 7 1 0 142.85
19.6 Sreesanth to Jaskaran Singh, its all happening! goes for an almighty hoick, mis-hits it and it goes really high, probably out of Srivastava's sight before coming back down, and he fails to gather the catch at midwicket. But he fires in a good throw to hit the stumps down at the striker's end. The batsman's just made his ground though. Sreesanth is quite disappointed with the drop. 170/7
View dismissal HH Gibbs b Yuvraj Singh 23 23 2 0 100.00
10.2 and he's got him! Short ball, but ramrod straight, Gibbs looks to mow it down to cow corner, but can't make connection. Stumps are down. Yuvraj's picked a huge wicket. 100/2
View dismissal A Symonds c Bipul Sharma b Yuvraj Singh 53 38 3 3 139.47
16.4 top catch from Bipul at long on! Symonds looks to hoist Yuvi over the ropes, but can't get enough elevation. Bipul runs in, dives forward and picks it an inch above the turf. The umpires took a few looks at it, but that's out. 142/5
View dismissal RG Sharma run out (Jayawardene) 1 2 0 0 50.00
10.5 from Yuvraj Singh, superb piece of fielding by Mahela Jayawardene from point! Rohit steers it down to point and takes off for a tight single. The throw was fired in to the non-striker's end and Rohit had to put in the dive, but it was all over. Third umpire completes the formalities and Deccan have lost two here. 102/3
View dismissal Anirudh Singh c †Sangakkara b Bipul Sharma 0 1 0 0 0.00
11.4 another one bites the dust! Anirudh is gone for a duck. Straight length ball, he tried to work it down to the offside and got a faint edge, which Sangakkara held well. Punjab are pegging Deccan back with these quick strikes. 112/4
View dismissal TL Suman run out (†Sangakkara) 26 22 2 1 118.18
19.2 Sreesanth to Jaskaran Singh, great work from Sanga! The attempted guide to third man goes to his right. Sanga gathers, does not bother with trifles like removing the gloves and calmly under-arms a throw to hit down the stumps at the striker's end. 163/7
View dismissal WPUJC Vaas c Bipul Sharma b Pathan 16 10 1 1 160.00
18.5 and he's got a wicket! Punjab have come back really well in the end overs. This time, it is short of a length and wide of off stump. Vaas looks to hoist it over long off, but that is quite far from him and he gets no timing. Bipul runs in to take another nice catch. 161/6

View dismissal RS Bopara c Symonds b Sharma 38 32 5 0 118.75
11.6 things are going all pear-shaped for Punjab here in Cuttack! Bopara goes now, looking to find the midwicket boundary, but the flat hit finds Symonds, who somehow catches the ball between his left forearm and chest. 68/6
View dismissal MS Bisla run out (Suman) 0 7 0 0 0.00
2.2 Vaas to Bopara, Bisla is run out! It's amazing how often close lbw appeals force batsmen to run like headless chickens! Nice offcutter from Vaas, rapped him on the pads and he let out a huge appeal. The ball dribbled to point where Suman swooped and threw down the stumps to catch Bisla well short. He had gone halfway down and turned back. Good throw, though there was time to relay it. 10/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† b Vaas 0 3 0 0 0.00
2.6 Vaas gives his Sri Lankan mate with a beautiful off cutter! Beat's Sanga's forward prod and sneaks in between bat and pad to disturb timber. Vaas has struck a purple patch in the IPL and it's only fair, he now has the Purple Cap, with six wickets! 11/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Gibbs b Vaas 4 6 1 0 66.66
4.6 oh Yuvi, Yuvi, what have you done here! It's outside off this time, short of a length and he looks to play a nothing shot without getting anywhere near the pitch of the ball. It balloons up towards cover point for a simple catch. Big blow! 22/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene b Symonds 14 9 3 0 155.55
7.4 takes the cheekiness a step too far! Tries to sweep a straight and fast ball, misses and the stumps are down. No need to play that shot given the situation. Punjab are in big trouble. 46/4
View dismissal AB Barath c Sharma b Ojha 7 10 1 0 70.00
10.1 caught in the deep! Pitched up by Ojha and Barath looks to go over long off, but sadly he's no Symonds, he's actually around half his size. It loops up to long off and is taken comfortably inside the ropes. 57/5
View dismissal IK Pathan c Symonds b Jaskaran Singh 60 29 3 5 206.89
19.1 and Irfan goes, what a tragedy! Length ball again on off stump, and Irfan looks for the fence over cow corner, but he has the small matter of getting past that man, Andrew Symonds. Ain't happening today, Symmo takes the catch easily and Irfan has to go. Huge wicket and belatedly, one believes the last nail on the coffin. 152/8
View dismissal PP Chawla c Ojha b Singh 9 13 1 0 69.23
16.1 well, Punjab surely did not need the time out, since Piyush goes first ball after the break. Looks to pull fine, but it goes straight to the short fine-leg fielder. 104/7
