Bravo to Venugopal Rao, 2 runs, short just outside off, he swings it through midwicket for an easy two

Bravo to Venugopal Rao, FOUR, slower ball outside off, short of a length, Rao makes room and looks to hit it over point but gets a thick outside edge well wide of the wicketkeeper so thats four more

Bravo to Venugopal Rao, 1 run, again he makes room and hits this one over covers, another loose shot and should have been taken but Tendulkar ran a bit ahead of himself and didn't take it

19.1

Malinga to Venugopal Rao, 1 run, OUT, put that down to smart work from the wicketkeeper! Its another gem of a yorker on the stumps, swung away with an inside edge past midwicket, Rao runs the first hard and then dives as he comes back on the second, Shah has to extend the hand to his right after he collects and knocks the stumps over and after a couple replays its ruled that Rao is out because his bat was in the air even though it was over the line ... really well collected by Shah, it wasn't an accurate throw back from Bravo in the deep

Y Venugopal Rao run out 28 (17b 2x4 1x6) SR: 164.70

Deccan Chargers 137/6   Y Venugopal Rao 28 (17b 2x4 1x6)
