Deccan Chargers won by 19 runs

1.1

Kulkarni to Gibbs, no run, full on the pads, Gibbs mistimes the flick straight to midwicket

1.2

Kulkarni to Gibbs, 1 wide, pitches well wide of off stump and swings away much further

1.2

Kulkarni to Gibbs, no run, short of a length and a bit wide, Gibbs gets thinking about the big shot but then checks the cut as the ball sort of stops on him, he picks out the off-side fielders

1.3

Kulkarni to Gibbs, no run, pitches it up, gets away movement, and no shot offered by Gibbs

1.4

Kulkarni to Gibbs, OUT, edged and gone! Gibbs pays the price for a poor drive away from the body, Kulkarni pitches it wide but it wasn't full enough for the drive and Gibbs gives Tendulkar at slip some regulation catching practice ... just wasn't to the pitch of the ball and went fishing

HH Gibbs c Tendulkar b Kulkarni 0 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

1.5

Kulkarni to Suman, no run, much fuller a foot outside off stump and Suman shoulders arms

1.6

Kulkarni to Suman, no run, comes onto the front foot and drives but straight to point

Deccan Chargers 8/1   DS Kulkarni 1-0-1-1

3.1

Kulkarni to Suman, 2 runs, a big swing to one outside off stump, a real miscue but its up and over point and dropping safely in no mans land so Suman is off the mark with a couple

3.2

Kulkarni to Suman, FOUR, fuller and straighter and again he swings at it, much better timing and his firm on-drive just beats mid-on and rolls away for four, he dived and misfield it

3.3

Kulkarni to Suman, no run, better ball, short of a length on middle and off and defended

3.4

Kulkarni to Suman, no run, clever stuff, holding back the length outside off stump and Suman is beaten as he tries to open the face and dab the ball to third man, but his feet did not move

3.5

Kulkarni to Suman, 1 run, good slower ball, much fuller on off and clipped just wide of midwicket

3.6

Kulkarni to Gilchrist, 1 run, pitches back of a length on off and Gilchrist gently pushes to covers

Deccan Chargers 21/1   DS Kulkarni 2-0-9-1

13.1

Kulkarni to Sharma, no run, down leg and he plays a big pull but there's no bat on ball and it hits the pads and drops near Rohit's feet

13.2

Kulkarni to Sharma, 1 run, gets a bit of room and drives the ball into the gap at cover for one

13.3

Kulkarni to Venugopal Rao, 1 run, a bit of width and he's off the mark with a steer past backward point

13.4

Kulkarni to Sharma, 2 runs, pitched up and there's a nice push back past bowler and mid-off

13.5

Kulkarni to Sharma, FOUR, reaches out to drive a fuller ball but is very lucky to get a thick inside back past the stumps, with fine leg up Rohit gets his first four of whats been an iffy innings so far

13.6

Kulkarni to Sharma, no run, again early onto the front foot and driving, but with too much bottom hand this time and Kulkarni fields the ball in his follow through

Deccan Chargers 93/4   DS Kulkarni 3-0-17-1

15.1

Kulkarni to Sharma, no run, comes out, makes room, reaches out to drive but picks out Harbhajan in the covers, who reacts well and saves a couple

15.2

Kulkarni to Sharma, no run, wide ball but he steps across and reaches out again, chopping to gully

15.3

Kulkarni to Sharma, 1 run, kneels down and swings across the line, not timed well but he gets a single out to the deep midwicket sweeper to raise the 100 for Deccan

15.4

Kulkarni to Venugopal Rao, 1 wide, pitched up wide of off stump, Rao chases and cannot connect

15.4

Kulkarni to Venugopal Rao, 1 run, again Rao chases the ball, rolling the wrists, and chops to gully

15.5

Kulkarni to Sharma, no run, dances out and collects it off the toe end, straight to extra cover

15.6

Kulkarni to Sharma, 1 run, gets right across the stumps and paddles a low full toss from well outside off stump, for all his cheeky efforts he only gets a single down to deep square leg

Deccan Chargers 103/4   DS Kulkarni 4-0-21-1
