View dismissal GC Smith b Sharma 2 7 0 0 28.57
1.6 timber! Smith gives him the charge and Ishant fires that on a good length on leg stump, he misses and the ball crashes onto the legstump. Smith tried to cart that over long-on but failed 11/1
View dismissal SA Asnodkar c Hussey b Umar Gul 60 34 10 1 176.47
11.3 loss of concentration from Asnodkar as he shapes to club that over the on side, the ball comes on a lot quicker and hence he gets a thick top edge which spoons to Hussey at wide mid-off, that was a tame end to a good innings but he's done his job 106/3
View dismissal M Kaif c & b Agarkar 21 18 3 1 116.66
6.6 Agarkar shoots back after conceding a six, he changes the pace of the ball, Kaif fails to read it early and tamely chips it back to Agarkar, he closes the face of the bat at the time of contact and hence mistimes it 53/2
View dismissal YK Pathan b Umar Gul 55 33 6 2 166.66
19.2 the legstump's outta here! Gul this time pitches it up on middle and leg, Pathan goes for the wild slog, fails to get the pitch of the ball and loses his legstump which goes back a few yards 190/6
View dismissal SR Watson lbw b Umar Gul 0 1 0 0 0.00
11.6 two for the over! Watson will feel rather aggrieved with that as he got a thick inside edge onto his pads. The ball swung in, Watson shaped to tuck it away very close to the pads, umpire Koertzen raises the finger, replays showed a thick edge 111/4
View dismissal RA Jadeja b Shukla 33 19 3 1 173.68
17.2 holds the length back, pitches on off and middle and holds its line, Jadeja swings way too early and the ball pegs the offstump back 168/5
View dismissal SK Warne* run out (Umar Gul/†Saha) 7 8 0 0 87.50
19.4 from Umar Gul, What was Warne thinking? He backs away and creams a low full toss to deep cover, he starts off for a second run but Tanvir isn't interested, the throw comes to the keeper, Saha throws it to Gul and warne lazily walks back to the crease totally unaware of what's going on, Gul breaks the stump and Warne still makes no effort to ground his bat 192/7

1.4 the offstump tumbles... Tanvir pitches it outside off and gets it to nip back in a little, Butt drives away from his body, fails to cover the line and gets a thick inside edge which cannons onto his offstump, as usual Tanvir shows no emotion 15/1
View dismissal SC Ganguly* c Kaif b Warne 51 39 4 2 130.76
13.5 just before the rope.... Ganguly takes a couple of paces down and lofts a full delivery with the turn to long-on, Kaif just manages to cup it before the rope and stays there for a few seconds, he's relieved he hasn't stepped over 119/4

4.5 Watson bowls the slow off cutter, Agarkar backs away to slog it but fails to pick the slower one, he gets a thick outside edge to Rawat, the pinch hitter tactic hasn't worked for Kolkata 44/2

5.6 Trivedi to Ganguly, full ball smashed back down the ground, crashes into the stumps at the other end, Hodge is out of the crease at the non-striker end, the bowler claims to have touched it and appeals for a run-out, and the third-umpire rules him out 51/3

17.1 Hussey's efforts go to dust as he exposes his stumps and tries to cart one over the on side, Trivedi bowls a yorker on the stumps and takes out the bails 143/6
View dismissal LR Shukla run out (Jadeja/†Rawat) 2 2 0 0 100.00
14.1 from Pathan, tucks it behind square on the onside, they set off for the second run but Shukla's struggling, the throw by Jadeja is flat and fast and Rawat whips off the bails, the third umpire has a look, Shukla's just an inch or so short 121/5
View dismissal DB Das c Watson b Sohail Tanvir 11 13 1 0 84.61
18.2 the slow leg cutter, he stays at the crease and lofts over the infield but fails to get the desired pace or elevation to go for the maximum, Watson comfortably taks it at long-off 147/8

View dismissal Umar Gul run out (Jadeja/†Rawat) 2 2 0 0 100.00
18.3 from Sohail Tanvir, only a matter of time... He digs out a yorker to deep square leg and the batsmen risk a second run, they take a chance with Jadeja's arm but the throw was quick and flat, Rawat whips off the bails and the third umpire wasn't required 148/9
I Sharma not out 1 1 0 0 100.00
View dismissal AB Dinda c sub (T Kohli) b Watson 1 3 0 0 33.33
19.1 catch of the tournament, surely! Dinda tries to clear the infield on the off side and there are two fielders converging towards it in the region of mid-off - Warne and Taruwar Kohli. They nearly collide but Kohli stretches out his left hand and pulls off a blinder and hangs on to it after Warne eventually collides with him. Several blue shirts crowd the pair and boy is Kohli delighted! 151/10
