24 May 2009 - day/night match (20-over match)

Vinay Kumar to Gibbs, 1 run, starts off with a straight ball, to which Gibbs is coming out before and then turns it wide of midwicket for a single


Vinay Kumar to Suman, 2 runs, slashes a full and wide ball up over gully, it drops safely in the deep and third man runs across to his right and stops it from running over the boundary


Vinay Kumar to Suman, OUT, gone! Suman perishes to a straight ball on the pads, takes a step down and looks to flick that over midwicket but the late movement undoes him, the leading edge going high to the off side where three men converge but its Pandey from point who runs back and takes it

TL Suman c Pandey b Vinay Kumar 10 (11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.90


Vinay Kumar to Gibbs, no run, good length, movement back in, Gibbs defends solidly to cover


Vinay Kumar to Gibbs, no run, straighter ball and Gibbs gets the wrists into play, flicking it to midwicket


Vinay Kumar to Gibbs, no run, better length outside off stump, luring Gibbs into a checked shot thats played a tad uppishly to cover

Deccan Chargers 18/2   R Vinay Kumar 1-0-3-1

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


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


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


Vinay Kumar to Gibbs, 1 run, pitches it up outside off, Gibbs lunges forward and pushes to mid-off


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


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   R Vinay Kumar 2-0-11-1

Vinay Kumar to Bilakhia, 2 runs, slower ball slides down the pads, Bilakhia cannot connect well on the pull but gets some glove on ball and it runs down to fine leg


Vinay Kumar to Bilakhia, 1 wide, bouncer outside off stump, Bilakhia doesn't expect it and pulls out, the umpire signals a wide for height


Vinay Kumar to Bilakhia, 1 run, slower ball, much straighter, and he chips it over mid-on for one


Vinay Kumar to Gibbs, 1 run, takes a couple steps down and tries to pull a short ball but makes poor contact and the ball ends up dribbling between midwicket and mid-on


Vinay Kumar to Bilakhia, 1 run, fuller in length and Bilakhia pushes it to extra cover and just sets off


Vinay Kumar to Gibbs, 2 runs, searches for the blockhole but doesn't quite find it, Gibbs makes room and drives the ball down to long-on where Kohli does well to stop the ball


Vinay Kumar to Gibbs, 2 runs, again he drives a straight and full ball down the ground to long-on

Deccan Chargers 125/5   R Vinay Kumar 3-0-21-1

Vinay Kumar to Bilakhia, OUT, and he's struck first ball with an attempted on the stumps, Bilakhia gets across to swing it over midwicket but misses and the low full toss hits him in front of leg stump

AA Bilakhia lbw b Vinay Kumar 6 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 85.71


Vinay Kumar to Harris, 2 runs, full on off stump, he makes room and drives down the ground, Gibbs wants two and Harris comes back


Vinay Kumar to Harris, 2 runs, yorker on the stumps, he somehow gets underneath it and biffs it over Gibbs, who again wants two, honestly he should be trying to get down the other end


Vinay Kumar to Harris, 2 runs, full ball, driven past extra cover, Gibbs calls for two and they get it


Vinay Kumar to Harris, 2 runs, Gibbs has set off before the ball is bowled, Harris connects well and drives it down the ground, Gibbs is just not wanting to get on strike


Vinay Kumar to Harris, 1 run, makes room, Vinay follows him and the result is an inside edge for one

Deccan Chargers 143/6   R Vinay Kumar 4-0-30-2
