    2.1 gone, that's a familiar Chopra dismissal, he moves across the stumps and tries to flick it towards the leg side, Steyn keeps it straight and that would have rattled middle and leg, Chopra has been out in that fashion earlier. And he has to go now too. 9/1
    3.3 got 'em, these dismissals are becoming commonplace in this tournament, short and Hodge waits for the pull, swivels around to smash that hard but he can't keep it on the ground, flies towards square leg where the fielder doesn't have to move. Straight into the bread-basket that as Bangalore strike again. End of Hodge 20/2
    7.3 this is what was not needed at this point, Ganguly takes off for a risky single and the fielder at mid-on lets in an accurate under-arm throw, Cameron White is alert there and he's gone for all money. The third umpire takes a long time but this is Kolkata and he better. Out it is. 46/3
    8.6 another! run-out again, turned towards fine leg and they think of two but Steyn lets go a sensational throw, straight over the bails and Hussey has no chance in getting back, Boucher does the rest and the umpire doesn't even refer the decision (which was pretty close). What a throw that was. Steyn is all geed up here, for sure. 64/4
    11.2 short of a length and Taibu isn't quick enough on the pull, top edge flies straight in the air and Boucher comes around to take an easy catch. 80/5
    11.5 short one, rising dangerously, Shukla tries to jab it down but can only manage an inside edge onto the stumps., Steyn continues to curse the skies, pacy stuff this 88/6

    15.4 driven back to the bowler, he takes it neat and claims the catch, then he realises they are going for a run and takes the bails off, either way it's out. Replays suggesting that it's probably caught and bowled. Saha doesn't get the strike now 122/7

    4.5 sensational again but this time by the fielder, Arunkumar taps it to the off side and takes off, deep point comes around towards third man and he's let rip a dart-accurate throw that catches JAK short of the crease, he was going so well and wanted the strike! what was the need for that. Hodge the star, though 32/2
    3.3 this time he's got him, full and shaping into the batsman, Shiv tries to go over the top but can only get a thick-ish inside edge, flies straight to mid-on and Kartik is waiting for this one, Ishant has struck, Eden erupts 17/1

    9.1 and he's cleaned up up, too cute from Dravid and he misses the paddle-sweep, leg stump is out of the ground and Ganguly is like Greek hero in Olympia, running through the ground as if he's won the marathon, he's loving this wicket, Dravid looks back in anguish. The Ganguly v Dravid battle is over. And there's been only one winner. 51/3
