  • Overs 101-150

Ganapathy to Dinda, 2 runs, late inswing into the pads, it was full and easy for Dinda to help it to fine of fine leg. Amarnath runs towards the ball and sticks his foot out to save the boundary


Ganapathy to Dinda, no run, thrown up outside off, Dinda goes for the drive, and misses by a long way

Bengal 322/8   AB Dinda 2* (2b)

Amarnath to Dinda, no run, full on the stumps, defended towards point


Amarnath to Dinda, no run, length ball, just outside off, and tries to punch it through cover, but can't beat the field


Amarnath to Dinda, no run, yorks him, but it is wide outside off, and too slow, so defended back to the bowler


Amarnath to Dinda, 2 runs, short one into his face, and Dinda swats a fly, caught in a tangle, realises the ball is heading towards his face, and then decides to full, gets two for his troubles


Amarnath to Dinda, no run, slower delivery again, too full, and Dinda defends it back to Amarnath

Bengal 325/8   AB Dinda 4* (7b)

Ganapathy to Dinda, no run, he is there and thereabouts throughout this spell, starts outside off, moving in, and defended by Dinda


Ganapathy to Dinda, no run, almost squeezes it through this time, another in-coming delivery. Dinda is stuck in the crease and is late in bringing his bat down, and just about gets the bat before the ball hits the pad

Bengal 326/8   AB Dinda 4* (9b)

Balaji to Dinda, no run, length delivery, outside off, and played with an open face


Balaji to Dinda, no run, lovely slower ball, flighted, around off, on a length, but played out watchfully


Balaji to Dinda, 1 run, tries a bouncer immediately, and Dinda dismisses it from his presence, with his now trademark fly-swatting pull

Bengal 328/8   AB Dinda 5* (12b)

Ganapathy to Dinda, no run, fullish, just outside off, making the batsman play, who does it watchfully


Ganapathy to Dinda, FOUR, he has swatted this fly to the boundary, towards the NCA.... short, slow, Dinda eyes closed, head turned away, but the pull is timed really well


Ganapathy to Dinda, no run, slower ball again, this is too obvious, and Dinda gets on the front foot to defend. VB Chandrasekar is rightly wondering why run in 20 yards to bowl such obvious slower ones


Ganapathy to Dinda, no run, length ball, around off, and played back towards the bowler


Ganapathy to Dinda, no run, another slower one, wide again, and is lightyears away from the bat. Karthik gets his legs together in time this time


Ganapathy to Dinda, no run, tries a short one, gets a bit of lift, but it is too slow to trouble Dinda, and not short enough for him to pull out the fly-swatter

Bengal 336/8   AB Dinda 9* (18b 1x4)

Balaji to Dinda, OUT, that's sharp, at 127ks, close to the fatsest deliveries we have seen in the match, and Dinda plays in his own special manner, not getting into the line, and just throwing his bat at it, and the ball goes straight through onto the middle stump. Entertaining but short, Dinda's stay was

AB Dinda b Balaji 9 (27m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 47.36

Bengal 344/9   AB Dinda 9 (19b 1x4)
