Sharma to Venugopal Rao,
caught at gully. The previous one stopped on the batsman, this one kicked up a touch even as it came in from outside off to cramp up Venu and he ended up guiding it straight to the fielder.
Y Venugopal Rao c Kartik b Sharma 14 (14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00
Dinda to Laxman,
The pitch takes out VVS. It was a short delivery and as any batsman would do, VVS went for the pull but it stopped on him, VVS couldn't get out of the shot and just managed to flat bat it a dolly to mid-off.
VVS Laxman c Shukla b Dinda 0 (6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
Kartik to Gilchrist,
holed out to long leg. It was a short delivery and Gilchrist swiveled to pull it but ended up top-edging it to the fielder. Chargers are running out of battery.
AC Gilchrist c Mohammad Hafeez b Kartik 23 (22b 1x4 2x6) SR: 104.54
Kartik to Sharma,
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
RG Sharma c †Saha b Kartik 0 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
Mohammad Hafeez to Styris,
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.
SB Styris b Mohammad Hafeez 6 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71
Hussey to Yadav,
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.
AS Yadav c Dinda b Hussey 10 (10b 0x4 1x6) SR: 100.00
Agarkar to Symonds,
Symonds falls after a very fine 32. It was a length delivery well outside off and Symonds wanted to carve it over the off side but it stopped on him and all he could do was present a simple catch to mid-off
A Symonds c Hussey b Agarkar 32 (39b 2x4 2x6) SR: 82.05
Agarkar to Vaas,
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.
WPUJC Vaas c Ganguly b Agarkar 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
Kartik to Bangar,
After a lovely classy shot, he falls to a swipe across the line. He tried to slog a turning delivery over midwicket. Instead, it lobbed up to covers.
SB Bangar c †Saha b Kartik 14 (10b 1x4 1x6) SR: 140.00
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.
