View dismissal JH Kallis c Fleming b Gony 5 5 1 0 100.00
1.4 caught! Kallis poor tournament rolls on, Gony pitches the ball short of a length just outside off and angles the ball into Kallis who gets squared up as the ball straightens off the pitch, he tries to defend on the back foot but the outside edge flies straight to Fleming at first slip 7/1
View dismissal SP Goswami c †Patel b Gony 10 19 1 0 52.63
5.3 another huge appeal for caught behind and Goswami's walked! The umpire shook his head and turned the appeal down but the batsmen decided to go. Gony pitched short of a length and angled the ball across the left-hander's off stump, Goswami tried to drive on the up but only managed an edge through to Parthiv 22/2
View dismissal V Kohli c Morkel b Muralitharan 10 16 1 0 62.50
8.1 brilliantly caught but Morkel's hurt himself, Kohli pulls the ball high in the air towards deep midwicket, Morkel initially mis-judges the catch and comes forward before he begins to back-pedal to try and get into position, he jumps backwards to take the catch and he's in mid-air as he takes it, he falls awkwardly on one knee and then hits his head on the ground as he falls backwards, he's managed to stay within the boundary by a foot so it's a fantastic effort 33/3
View dismissal R Dravid* c Dhoni b Morkel 47 39 5 0 120.51
16.5 caught! Dravid's gone after playing yet another lone hand, he backs away towards leg to make room and drives a full ball hard and flat towards cover where Dhoni leans forward and takes the catch inches off the ground 97/6
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq c †Patel b Balaji 4 6 0 0 66.66
9.6 caught, superbly by Parthiv! The short of a length delivery angles into Misbah from over the wicket, cramping him for room, Misbah tries to steer the ball towards third man but gets a thick outside edge that flies into the gap between the keeper and first slip, Parthiv dives full length to his right and grabs the catch with one hand, first slip was standing wide so Parthiv had to go for it and he did brilliantly 41/4
View dismissal MV Boucher lbw b Morkel 17 15 3 0 113.33
14.6 lbw! Morkel slips in the yorker and Boucher tries to play across the line towards the leg side, he misses and gets hit flush on the boot, that is going on to hit leg stump and umpire Harper sends Boucher on his way 76/5

  Chennai Super Kings innings (target: 127 runs from 20 overs) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal PA Patel c & b Kumble 24 29 4 0 82.75
9.1 caught! With a lot of luck! I've never seen one like this before! Parthiv stepped out of his crease and drove the ball hard straight back at Kumble who failed to hold on at the first attempt, the ball bounced out of his hands and hit the non-striker Fleming on the shoulder and popped up for Kumble to take the catch off the rebound, it might have hit Fleming's shoulder and his hand actually 60/1
View dismissal SP Fleming c Akhil b Kumble 45 40 3 2 112.50
13.2 this time he's definitely out! Fleming gets down on one knee and slog-sweeps Kumble, who I suspect bowled a seam-up delivery, straight into Akhil's hands at deep square leg, he's taken well-judged catch while running forward 84/3
View dismissal MS Dhoni* c Kumble b Vinay Kumar 4 8 0 0 50.00
10.6 he doesn't time it this either and he's caught! Dhoni tries to get under a good length ball and loft it out of the ground, he doesn't get enough elevation or distance and holes out to Kumble at long-on 65/2
SK Raina not out 21 20 2 0 105.00
View dismissal S Badrinath lbw b Kumble 1 3 0 0 33.33
13.6 lbw! Badrinath moves dangerously across his stumps and gets hit on the pad by a full ball after he misses the sweep, Kumble appeals and Harper agrees, that hit him in line with off stump and would have gone on to hit the stumps 86/4
View dismissal JA Morkel c Vinay Kumar b Steyn 1 5 0 0 20.00
15.3 caught in the deep! Steyn bowls the short ball and Morkel plays the hook, he's hit it in the air towards deep square leg where Vinaykumar takes an easy catch, he hardly had to move for the ball came straight to him, Bangalore are cock-a-hoop 92/5
View dismissal S Vidyut c Kallis b Steyn 0 3 0 0 0.00
15.6 what a catch! Kallis has taken a blinder! Vidyut tries to pull a short ball that hurries on to him far too quickly, he mis-hits the ball and it lobs up towards short midwicket, Kallis runs to his right from midwicket and dives full length to take the catch inches off the ground, splendid effort 92/6
View dismissal MS Gony c Steyn b Kumar 4 4 1 0 100.00
17.4 caught! Priceless wicket and a dot ball, Gony creates room and tries to pull a short of a length delivery from outside off stump towards the leg side, he mis-hits it straight to Steyn who takes the catch on the edge of the circle at mid-off 107/7
View dismissal L Balaji run out (Dravid/Goswami) 0 4 0 0 0.00
18.2 from Steyn, Balaji is run out! Steyn fires in a quick short ball, Balaji tries to pull but hits it towards cover where Dravid fields and throws the ball to the bowler's end, Goswami gets to the stumps before the bowler and breaks the stumps with Balaji miles short 109/8
