    18.2 bangs it short, from over the wickets, and it climbs big on Gambhir who miscues his pull to Praveen at deep midwicket. A very fine innings comes to an end. 179/5
    4.6 Gambhir plays it down to point and sets off. sehwag responds, but the pick-up and throw from Ross Taylor is brilliant. The umpire gives him out without even consulting the third umpire. Shikhar Dhawan is the new man in 53/1
    14.6 Dravid takes a stunning catch. No smiles, though. He just flings the ball in the air and walks briskly as the players mob him. Dhawan swung a full one across the line and Dravid dived to his right from his midwicket position to take the catch inches off the turf. 151/2
    16.1 Malik loses his middle stump. He moved outside leg and tried to run a short-of-length delivery to third man but was beaten for pace. 159/3
    17.1 What a yorker! The off stump has broken into two pieces. It was right at the base of off stump and Karthik tried to bring down his bat in a hurry but was too late 167/4

    0.5 that the end of that! good length delivery on the middle and leg stump line, Kumar looks to work it over the in-field on the leg side but only manages to the find Dhawan at the edge of the circle - soft dismissal. 6/1
    4.6 McGrath gets his second wicket of the over. Again banged in short, bit of extra bounce and that's enough to do the damage. Jaffer messes up his pull shot - he was on the front foot too - and sends a dolly to mid-on 48/3
    4.2 Taylor's IPL stint ends. Full and on the middle, he again went for his leg side swing and ended up miscuing it to deep midwicket. He is a such a fine player but keeps going across the line 46/2
    18.6 The armer takes out Kallis. He ran down the track, had a heave but missed. He was through the shot early. 162/5
    15.3 McGrath takes his fourth wicket. Dravid moved outside leg, McGrath hurled it outside off, on a length and Dravid ended up skying his lofted drive and Sehwag, running in from covers, took the catch. This is the best figures by a bowler in this tourney. McGrath becomes the first bowler to take four wickets. what a legend 135/4
