View dismissal RG Sharma lbw b RA Jadeja 28 70 49 2 1 57.14
173.4 straightens after pitching on the off and middle. Sharma is playing for the turn and is foxed. What seals the deal is that he was playing with his pad and back he has to go. Another unfulfilled promise by Rohit Sharma 615/5

View dismissal AB Agarkar lbw b RA Jadeja 2 15 11 0 0 18.18
177.1 there is another wicket! Hazare is spot on with his decision as Agarkar pads a delivery pitching on the middle and leg and going on it's way to the stumps. A dejected Agarkar has to make the long walk back 619/6

View dismissal CR Pathak c Kulkarni b Khan 30 30 22 7 0 136.36
6.3 And the fun is over. Death by aggression. Another bouncer, another pull but this time it looped in the air and landed safely in the hands of deep square leg fielder. 41/1
View dismissal BM Chauhan b Agarkar 14 55 31 1 0 45.16
11.3 Agarkar lets out a war cry after knocking out the middle stump. It was full, it shaped in and Chauhan went for the straight drive but pushed outside the line as the ball curved in to clean him up 52/2
View dismissal SH Kotak c Sharma b Kulkarni 89 325 211 11 0 42.18
86.1 Kotak is gone. soft dismissal. It was a short-of-length delivery on the hips and Kotak shuffled across and clipped it straight to Rohit at leg gully. He can't believe what he has done much like Pujara. And a very fine innings under pressure comes to an end. Well played Kotak. He played Powar really well, tackled the reverse swing of Zaheer khan and Agarkar superbly but he is gone now 245/5
View dismissal CA Pujara c Jaffer b Powar 39 90 66 6 0 59.09
29.5 And Pujara has gone just before lunch. It turned in from outside off stump, from a length and bounced a bit., Pujara tried to be cheeky, went for the late cut but was cramped and guided the ball straight to slip. He can't believe what he has done. He looks to the skies before walking back distraught. Pity. He looked pretty solid out there. 123/3
View dismissal RA Jadeja c †Samant b Khan 10 34 25 0 0 40.00
37.6 the in -out reverse swinging workout from Zaheer works. Kotak was good to survive, not Jadeja. He goes for the big drive, well away from the body but this one curves away to take the edge. The shiny side was outside and ball moved away. 151/4
View dismissal JN Shah* c sub (AA Chavan) b Kulkarni 49 221 184 8 0 26.63
90.2 And he is caught at backward point. He chased a delivery outside off stump and sliced it to backward point. A scratchy innings comes to an end. 255/6

View dismissal SD Jogiyani c Sharma b Kulkarni 0 3 4 0 0 0.00
90.5 Another wicket down. The end is nigh. Jogiyani flashed at a length delivery that straightened outside off, only to edge it straight to Rohit at third slip. 256/7

123.2 And again. Powar is bowling from over the stumps. 359/8
View dismissal SP Jobanputra c Jaffer b Powar 16 16 18 3 0 88.88
127.5 He went for the sweep shot, missed and the ball went through slowly to catch the back of the bat as it completed the arc and popped to Jaffer at first slip! What a way to go. 377/9
View dismissal BN Jadeja c †Samant b Powar 2 10 7 0 0 28.57
129.6 And finally,Samant takes one. 50-50 decision The bat hit the ground, not sure whether it kissed the outer edge. Anyway that's that. Saurashtra have been bowled out for 379 379/10

11.4 now there's the wicket. Mazumdar, wants the ball to drop dead onto the pitch as he comes lunging forward. He has clearly failed to read the delivery as all he manages to get is an outside edge back to the keeper. He has to wait for the final now to get to the record 42/1
