Abdulla to Bishnoi, OUT, Punjab saw it coming, Abdulla keeps it full outside the offstump and invites the uppish drive, Bishnoi obliges and ends up tamely chipping it to Chawla at short cover, there was a packed off side field waiting for that offering

13.1

Yuvraj Singh to Boucher, OUT, That's hat-trick No.4 in the IPL! That's yet another arm ball which fetches him a wicket, he slips in the fast arm ball which lands on the offstump, skids through and clips his front pad in front of the stumps as he shapes to work it to the on side, the umpire lifts the finger immediately

MV Boucher lbw b Yuvraj Singh 2 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00
