13.3 Trivedi's got a huge wicket! He bowled a full and wide ball outside off stump, Gilchrist chased it, trying to drive through cover, even though it was a bit too wide and got a thin edge through to Rawat, he's gone for 61, massive blow for Deccan 97/3
    7.6 caught! Munaf comes back and how! He pitched the ball just short of a length around off stump and seamed it away from the right-hander, Gibbs stayed in his crease and poked at it, Rawat took the thin edge with ease, no footwork from Gibbs on that occasion 61/1
    12.2 caught! Warne holds on to a skier! Styris tried to loft Yusuf over midwicket once again, his time he tried to drag it from outside off and got a top edge, the ball went extremely high in the air but got no further than Warne at midwicket, well-judged catch 88/2
    15.4 loud shout for lbw and then there is a run out! Sharma tried to flick another ball from the blockhole and got hit on the pad, Trivedi appealed for leg before but umpire Benson said not out, the ball had gone towards cover off the pad and Sharma wanted the leg bye, he was sent back and Warne threw down the stumps from cover before he could regain his ground at the striker's end, Deccan are struggling now 105/5
    14.2 caught!! Afridi charged out of his crease and tried to blast the ball down the ground, he was no where close to the pitch of the ball and once Warne began to turn it away from him he had no chance, he threw his bat wildly at it and got a top edge that went towards backward point where Munaf held the catch over his head 100/4
    16.2 caught! Watson bangs in a sharp short ball that angles into the right-hander, cramping him for room, Bangar gets surprised by the pace and bounce and jumps on to the back foot, he tries to open the face and run the ball to third man but only manages to edge to the wicketkeeper 105/6
    18.3 now Teja's attempted the reverse sweep against Warne and he's lbw! He premeditated the shot and got hit on the pad in front of leg and middle, that did pitch outside leg stump though 126/7
    not out
    19.1 the slower ball bowled full outside off stump, RP misses the slog and tries to steal the bye to give Venugopal the strike, Rawat misses the underarm throw at the striker's end but Tanvir collects and throws down the stumps at the bowler's end to run out RP 130/8
