View dismissal L Ronchi c Kohli b Khan 8 10 2 0 80.00
1.5 oh well held, Kohli! Ronchi drives into the air towards cover-point and Kohli plucks a superb catch diving away to his left and low to the ground, that was firmly struck but he did excellenty 9/1
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya run out (Khan) 29 16 5 1 181.25
5.4 from Khan, good hit! Change of pace, slants into him, tucked off the pads and calls for the run, urged by Uthappa, but the ball dribbles to Zaheer, who collects and hits the other end with a superb throw, catching Jayasuriya inches short of his crease ... though it must be said his bat was not fully outstretched .. but a brilliant throw from the bowler 46/2
DJ Thornely retired hurt 0 5 0 0 0.00
3.4 from Khan, ouch! Zaheer drops in another short one on the stumps and Thornely goes to pull, mistiming it onto the grill and then his nose or cheek and he falls to the ground in pain ... those must hurt something bad ... attention on the field for Thornely ... looks like the ball snuck in through the grill ... off he goes and Uthappa comes out ... hope Thornely is okay .. that was ugly 20/1
View dismissal RV Uthappa st †Boucher b Akhil 48 38 5 1 126.31
16.5 brilliantly stumped! Uthappa perishes attempting another of those cheeky scoops, walking down and across well before the ball is bowled, missing the line and Boucher pulls off an extremely neat piece of glovework, as its not easy standing up to a medium-pacer 125/4
View dismissal PR Shah c Kohli b Akhil 19 23 2 0 82.60
13.3 full and very wide, he reaches out and makes contact, but its a mistimed slog that spirals up and settles in Kohli's hands, stepping back at extra cover 97/3
View dismissal AM Nayar c Khan b Kumar 20 14 1 1 142.85
18.5 well held by Zaheer at fine leg, after Nayar pulls a short one on the stumps, just keeping his eyes on the ball and cupping it to his right, a spirited innings comes to an end 152/5

View dismissal S Chanderpaul c Nayar b Kulkarni 16 11 3 0 145.45
4.6 and he falls, flicking a straight one over square leg and the man on the boundary just stands where he is and accepts the slog, no doubt the pain in his knee contributed to that rash stroke, to hand Kulkarni his maiden wicket in IPL 37/1
View dismissal R Dravid* c & b Harbhajan Singh 32 33 4 0 96.96
8.5 oh ho! Harbhajan ends the over with a wicket, tossing it up on middle and leg, luring Dravid into a tame chip back in the air, Harbhajan dives forward to his right in front of Taylor and cups it just off the turf before celebrating with vigorous Punjabi gusto, even as Dravid questions the validity of the take, slowly waiting and looking to square leg and walking off 68/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Nayar b Jayasuriya 23 12 1 2 191.66
9.6 gone! Taylor, after a good little camoe, throws it away with a shimmy down the track but mistimes the lofted drive down Nayar's throat at long-off 76/3
View dismissal JH Kallis c Nayar b Harbhajan Singh 25 24 0 1 104.16
18.4 what a catch! Brilliant! Kallis kneels down and slogs Harbhajan and Nayar dives forward at deep midwicket to pluck his third, and by far best, take of the evening 161/5
View dismissal V Kohli c †Ronchi b Nehra 23 14 3 1 164.28
13.3 easy catch, as the extra bounce gets Kohli in a tangle, pulling with his eyes taken off the ball, and all Ronchi has to do is run in a pace and take the top-edge 106/4
