    8.1 Goel's run out! Sangakkara came out of his crease and drove the ball hard towards cover, Bravo fumbles but recovers quickly, and there never was a single in it for Goel was lookign at the ball, Sangakkara called for the run and Goel responded late, he was miles short when Ronchi broke the stumps 81/2
    1.4 caught! Nehra pitches it short and Pathan tries to pull it from outside off stump, he makes contact with the bottom of his bat and hits it straight to Kulkarni at mid-on, he takes a simple catch at chest height 8/1
    18.2 Sangakkara tries to reach 100 with a six but holes out! He slog swept a flat and fast delivery high in the air towards deep square leg, Kulkarni was stationed on the boundary and he took a simple catch, high but relatively easy 159/7
    10.6 caught! and splendidly caught! Yuvraj once again punched a good length ball with supreme timing towards long off, maybe he should have hit it with a full flourish this time because Bravo was able to run forward and dive low to take the sharp catch inches off the ground, Yuvraj was unsure whether it was taken but it was and he has to go 107/3
    13.5 caught! Sarwan backs away towards the leg side and tries to loft a good length ball over extra cover, he doesn't get the necessary elevation and Harbhajan hardly has to move to take the catch at waist height 121/4
    16.4 caught! Jayawardene got into position to play the reverse pull, the ball was flat and fast and Jayawardene hit it straight to short third man who took an easy catch 152/5
    17.4 caught! Sohal gets beaten by the slower ball and his attempt at clearing the boundary falls right into Nehra's hands at mid-off, simple catch and Mumbai are fighting back impressively 155/6

    18.6 lbw! Chawla tries to play a reverse sweep off his first ball, it was a full ball that pitched just in line with leg stump, Chawla missed it and was hit on the pad, difficult to say whether it would have gone on to hit but umpire Sahiba thought it was out 169/8
    19.2 Kulkarni surprises Sreesanth with a sharp bouncer, Sreesanth was committed on to the front foot and fended the ball away from front of his face, the ball smacked his glove and went straight up to Luke Ronchi, Punjab nine down now 170/9
    19.6 full ball driven to extra cover, Lee takes an easy single but VRV comes back for a non-existent second and gets himself run out 182/10

    2.4 Lee's on fire! Robin Uthappa dropped a ball with soft hands towards the off side and called for the single, Ronchi was late is setting off but he had no chance as Lee sprinted towards the ball, picked it up cleanly adn it one fluid motion threw down the stumps at the batsman's end, Ronchi was way short and Lee is pumped! What celebrations 14/2
    2.3 caught! Lee you beauty! He bowled a full and fast ball at Jayasuriya who drove it in the air right back at Lee who went down on his knees on his follow through and took a low catch, he had very little time to react, what an athlete Lee is, such mobility 14/1
    9.1 caught! Uthappa's leaned across to a good length ball and chipped it, he's chipped it straight to Sarwan at midwicket, the ball lobbed up for him to take the easiest of catches, big big wicket and now Punjab have this match in control 65/4

    12.2 bowled him! Tiwary tries to make room by backing away towards leg stump and attempts to loft Chawla down the ground, he didn't get to the pitch of the ball, it turned into him, passed the bat, and crashed into middle stump, Chawla's bowling an invaluable spell here 91/5
    15.2 magic! Magic catch! Pollcok gets under a low full toss on off stump and tries to loft once again over cover, this time Yuvraj takes a step back and then jumps up in the air, he almost remained suspended in the air for a bit with his left-hand outstretched over his head as the ball stuck, similar to the ones Collingwood takes at point, or Shane Thompson off Aamer Sohail at the 1996 World Cup 105/8
    13.1 caught! Chawla's in the thick of the action, Nayar tried to pull a short ball from Pathan, he took that from outside off stump and sliced it in the air towards mid-on where Chawla settled under a simple catch, Mumbai are crumbling swiftly here 94/6
    13.2 lbw! Pathan bowls one straight on a good length, Harbhajan walks across his stumps and tries to play the ball on the leg side, the ball bent into the right-hander after pitching in line with the stumps and hit Harbhajan flush on the pad, that would have gone on to hit leg and Pathan has two in two! 94/7
    17.2 bowled him! or is it hitwicket? Khote backed away once again to make room to slice the ball on the off side, Sreesanth bowled a full and fast ball on off stump, it appeared as though Khote hit his leg stump with his bat while he was bringing it down and then the ball crashed into off stump after he missed the shot 110/9
