Pathan to Gilchrist, OUT, and the decision to bring in spin early works, Gilchrist is gone lbw, he was looking to sweep, misses and is hit on the pads, Rajasthan appeal and the umpire sends him on his way, he was unlucky though, replays show the ball pitched just outside legstump

Trivedi to Suman, OUT, Trivedi persists with the short length, and it pays dividends, Suman holes out to midwicket, it was a good-looking shot but Suman managed to pick out the fielder in the deep, Lee Carseldine, who takes a well-judged catch looking into the sun

TL Suman c Carseldine b Trivedi 29 (19b 3x4 1x6) SR: 152.63

Deccan Chargers 42/2   RG Sharma 2* (5b)   SK Trivedi 0.5-0-10-1

Jadeja to Sharma, OUT, Jadeja provides the breakthrough, soft dismissal, slightly faster in the air, the arm ball accounts for Rohit, who had come down the track and was looking for the turn, there wasn't any and the the batsman is beaten, simple stumping for Naman Ojha, who juggles with the ball a bit before breaking the stumps

RG Sharma st †Ojha b Jadeja 9 (14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 64.28

Jadeja to Symonds, OUT, Jadeja's on song today, another big wicket for him, Symonds is bowled, that was very full pitching on legstump, Symonds hadn't been too comfortable against Jadeja all through, he plays around the ball as he tries to flick it, and the legstump is rocked back

A Symonds b Jadeja 30 (19b 2x4 1x6) SR: 157.89

Deccan Chargers 83/4   DR Smith 3* (6b)   RA Jadeja 2.3-0-13-2

Pathan to Vaas, OUT, Vaas is gone this time, holes out to wide long-on, he was always looking to shuffle down the track right through his innings, he does it again, Yusuf sends down a short ball, Vaas can only swipe it to the waiting Lee Carseldine
