4.1

Kallis to Symonds, FOUR, just short of a length outside off stump and Symonds doesn't disappoint, leaning onto the back foot and punching the ball between cover and point for four

4.2

Kallis to Symonds, no run, slower ball, fuller length, Symonds runs it straight to backward point

4.3

Kallis to Symonds, no run, now he digs it in short to force Symonds onto the back foot, he hops up and allows the ball come on to him before dabbing it in front of cover

4.4

Kallis to Symonds, 1 run, fuller ball and the movement draws an edge from Symonds' bat, he was waiting on the back foot and played at it late and got a thick edge between slip and gully

Deccan Chargers 23/2   A Symonds 5* (4b 1x4)

5.1

Vinay Kumar to Symonds, no run, another bouncer, quicker than what Kallis produced, Symonds doesn't get into position to pull but tries the shot anyways, the ball follows and cramps and beats him

5.2

Vinay Kumar to Symonds, no run, oh lord Dravid has dropped a sitter at slip! The man who has the most catches in Test cricket fluffs a regulation catch, it came at him at a good height after Symonds got back and steered a short ball right to Dravid, but its in and right back out, shocking that

5.3

Vinay Kumar to Symonds, 1 run, fuller on the stumps and he flicks it wide of midwicket for one

5.5

Vinay Kumar to Symonds, 2 runs, makes some room and throws the bat a length ball, miscues it, slashes up and over backward point and the ball drops in no mans land

5.6

Vinay Kumar to Symonds, FOUR, bang, thats four! Again Symonds backs away to create room, Vinay drops the ball short but Symonds bludgeons it over extra cover and it lands just short of being a six

Deccan Chargers 31/2   A Symonds 12* (9b 2x4)

6.2

Kallis to Symonds, FOUR, dismissed! Symonds gets back and a full ball immensely hard past mid-off where Kumble dives with an outstretched left hand in vain

6.3

Kallis to Symonds, FOUR, shot man! Again Symonds backs away and smokes the ball past a diving cover and thats four more, what batting

6.4

Kallis to Symonds, 1 run, makes room, Kallis follows him with a short ball, Symonds swats the ball through midwicket

Deccan Chargers 41/2   A Symonds 21* (12b 4x4)

7.1

van der Merwe to Symonds, no run, flat ball on a length, Symonds waits for turn and then goes back and turns the ball away but Roelof dives to his right athletically and saves a runs, great fielding

7.2

van der Merwe to Symonds, SIX, thats short and pulled away over midwicket to raise Deccan's fifty

7.3

van der Merwe to Symonds, 2 runs, slower ball, on the pads, Symonds on-drives past midwicket

7.4

van der Merwe to Symonds, no run, flatter ball, slider, Symonds presses forward and is late on the shot but there's no appeal because that was missing leg stump easily

7.5

van der Merwe to Symonds, 1 run, slider again, too short and he pulls it past square leg

Deccan Chargers 54/2   A Symonds 30* (17b 4x4 1x6)

8.1

Kumble to Symonds, no run, slowly floats it up outside off and Symonds pushes to extra cover

8.2

Kumble to Symonds, 2 runs, short ball, hurries on but Symonds pulls it past midwicket for two

8.3

Kumble to Symonds, 1 run, thats just too short but Symonds can only pull a single out to Roelof at deep midwicket

8.5

Kumble to Symonds, OUT, what a way to get out! Kumble slides another wrong 'un down leg stump, its short and sits up to be pulled but Symonds cannot connect at all, the ball hits him under the arm, drops onto his thighs and then lands on leg stump to dislodge the bails

A Symonds b Kumble 33 (21b 4x4 1x6) SR: 157.14

Deccan Chargers 58/3   A Symonds 33 (21b 4x4 1x6)
