View dismissal GJ Bailey run out (Yuvraj Singh) 15 12 3 0 125.00
4.5 from Powar, run out, flighted outside off, drew him out of the crease, drove it to Yuvraj at mid-off and set off for the single, dived full length forward to make it but the Punjab captain scored a direct hit at the non-striker's end, replays show he was short 40/1
View dismissal PA Patel b Powar 32 23 4 1 139.13
6.5 trying to be a little too cheeky there, was too close to cut, a quicker one off the arm on middle, made room to chop it down, but instead dragged it onto the stumps, perhaps his only lapse, but costs him his wicket 54/2
View dismissal SK Raina c Lee b Mota 20 21 2 0 95.23
13.3 the pressure was on with the boundaries not coming, and Raina has snapped. Bowled short outside off, made room to cart that over point, got a thick outside edge straight to Lee at short third, Punjab are chipping away here, it was the offcutter 87/5
View dismissal S Badrinath c Pathan b Sreesanth 4 9 0 0 44.44
9.3 a wicket at the stroke of the timeout, now how many times has that happened? Short on the off, goes for the pull in an attempt to clear midwicket, it gets onto him a little too quickly and he lobs a dolly to Irfan at mid-on 68/3
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b Sreesanth 2 2 0 0 100.00
9.5 superb yorker!! Dhoni was totally done in by the inswinger, bowled in the high 140's, he was surprised by the pace, failed to bring his bat down in time and the offstump was pegged back. Punjab have the advantage now 70/4
View dismissal JDP Oram c & b Pathan 17 21 1 0 80.95
17.4 Oram goes! Length ball and he was tempted, took his left foot out to smack that over the bowler's head, ended up slicing it really high and Irfan waited ages for it to come down before snapping it in his palms over his head 105/7
View dismissal MS Gony b Chawla 7 5 0 1 140.00
14.4 went after one too many, gave it some air, but held it back, bowled it short on middle, Gony rocked back to go for the pull, missed as the ball spun away to clip his pad and crash into offstump 96/6
View dismissal R Ashwin c Pomersbach b Pathan 8 15 1 0 53.33
17.6 he's gone now, good length outside off, makes room to clear extra cover but mistimes it completely, Pomersbach runs back a couple of steps to take a dolly 109/8
View dismissal T Thushara run out (Katich/†Sangakkara) 1 5 0 0 20.00
19.4 from Pathan, run out, aiming for the yorker, landed full on the off, tried to drag it over midwicket, mistimed it wide of deep square leg, an accurate throw at the striker's end and Sangakkara clipped the bails to find Thushara just short, another one down 114/9

15.1 uses his height so pluck it over his head, Punjab are on the mat now, tossed up on middle, Sanga came down the track and tried to chip it over the bowler but Ashwin's a tall man, intercepted it with a perfectly-timed leap to get his hands around it 59/5
