Malinga to Gilchrist, no run, just short of a length, moving into Gilchrist a touch, on target, defended right out of the middle of the bat, a clear and loud no


Malinga to Gilchrist, no run, short of a length, pitched middle and angled away, but not enough room for Gilchrist to push it


Malinga to Gilchrist, no run, short and sharp, 134Ks, but came on quicker, Gilchrist looked for the pull for a moment, but realised he was late into the shot, and played it towards point


Malinga to Gilchrist, no run, a length delivery, 138ks, coming in at a low trajectory, and Gilchrist defends with open face, he has been on target so far


Malinga to Gilchrist, SIX, Gilchrist has had his sighter, and has now hit a blinder, this was neither full nor short, on the stumps, and he short-arms it - neither a pull nor a drive - over mid-on, and where he got the timing from to take it for a six we will never know


Malinga to Gilchrist, no run, slower ball now, good comeback by Malinga, just outside off, and defended into the off side

Deccan Chargers 6/0   AC Gilchrist 6* (6b 1x6)

Khan to Gilchrist, no run, this one swings, away from Gilchrist, and is beaten on the drive. And Gilchrist finds it boring - he yawns after that


Khan to Gilchrist, FOUR, this will wake him up, looks to pull, the ball hurries onto him, and the top-edge carries over slip

Deccan Chargers 15/0   AC Gilchrist 10* (8b 1x4 1x6)

Malinga to Gilchrist, FOUR, lovely shot, Malinga errs a little bit with this yorker, but the ball is still swinging away from Gilchrist, but Gilchrist stays back and just opens the face towards a vacant thirdman region. He knew the field really well


Malinga to Gilchrist, 1 run, fullish on the pads, and Gilchrist goes for the short, square boundary on the on side, but the flick goes along the ground, and the area is well covered

Deccan Chargers 21/0   AC Gilchrist 15* (10b 2x4 1x6)

Khan to Gilchrist, 1 wide, how is that a wide? this was short, Gilchrist went for the cut, is beaten by the extra bounce, this one passed over his bat, and was pretty close to the wide indicator


Khan to Gilchrist, 1 leg bye, slipping onto the pads, and Gilchrist misses a flick, and gets a leg-bye


Khan to Gilchrist, no run, that's cut him into two, Gilchrist has had a bit of trouble facing the away-going delivery, but this one jagged back into him, from a length, and it goes over the stumps


Khan to Gilchrist, SIX, Zaheer almost had Gilchrist here, but the edge goes for a six! Oh come on some justice for bowlers? This one moved away, Gilchrist swung almightily, got a thick edge towards thirdman, and the ball cleared Malinga


Khan to Gilchrist, 1 run, just shor tof alength, and dropped into off side for a single

Deccan Chargers 36/0   AC Gilchrist 22* (14b 2x4 2x6)

Bravo to Gilchrist, 1 run, almost a catch, Gilchrist swings at a length ball from his crease, and it goes one-bounce to Dhawan at mid-off. What's more, he misses a direct hit that would have got Gilchrist

Deccan Chargers 37/0   AC Gilchrist 23* (15b 2x4 2x6)

Harbhajan Singh to Gilchrist, FOUR, too fast, 96ks, and Gilchrist is too smart for these deliveries, this gave him room, and Gilchrist late-cuts it, thirdman is up, okay bye


Harbhajan Singh to Gilchrist, 1 run, Harbhajan repeats the mistake, same delivery, same shot, but this time the short thirdman gets across, and saves four

Deccan Chargers 51/0   AC Gilchrist 28* (17b 3x4 2x6)

Bravo to Gilchrist, SIX, Phew what a shot, length ball, on the pads, Gilchrist makes a half-move to front foot, and flicks it over wide long-on. It's gone way into the stand


Bravo to Gilchrist, 1 run, slower ball, and smart batting, he opens the face and takes a single to thirdman


Bravo to Gilchrist, OUT, and he gets Gilchrist with the poorest delivery he has bowled so far, this would have been a wide outside off had Gilchrist not driven at it with all his might, but all he manages is a faint edge through to Pinal Shah

AC Gilchrist c †Shah b Bravo 35 (20b 3x4 3x6) SR: 175.00
