2.2

Pollock to Sangakkara, no run, oh Sangakkara's all over the place, he tried to charge Pollock but was beaten by a slower ball, he tried to pull but was hit on the body, he then tried to look for a single but had to scamper back before the throw came in from gully

4.4

Pollock to Sangakkara, FOUR, Pollock once again tries the slower ball and once again he strays down leg side, fine leg is in the circle and Sangakkara flicks the ball off his hips past him for yet another boundary

10.1

Pollock to Sangakkara, 1 run, fullish length outside off stump, Sangakkara gets down on one knee and drives powerfully towards cover

10.2

Pollock to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, that's a full toss from Pollock and Yuvraj's dispatched it, he merely punched that, there was no follow through of the bat at all, it was hit effortlessly but the timing was immaculate, the ball sailed over the long-on boundary and brought up the 100

10.3

Pollock to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, short ball and Yuvraj has clobbered it, he pulled that so hard that the ball reached the boundary even with two men on the ropes

10.6

Pollock to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, caught! and splendidly caught! Yuvraj once again punched a good length ball with supreme timing towards long off, maybe he should have hit it with a full flourish this time because Bravo was able to run forward and dive low to take the sharp catch inches off the ground, Yuvraj was unsure whether it was taken but it was and he has to go

Yuvraj Singh c Bravo b Pollock 18 (13m 9b 1x4 1x6) SR: 200.00

Kings XI Punjab 107/3   SM Pollock 4-0-40-1
