    9.5 the slower ball does him in, Gambhir makes room to carve that over extra cover but fails to pick the offcutter as he under edges it onto the stumps, the offstump is flattened 68/3
    5.6 Watson pitches it outside off and the ball holds its line, Sehwag tries to punch it wide of the infield on the offside but ends up placing it straight to Kaif at backward point who hangs on to the sitter 47/1
    6.6 Dhawan taps it a little wide of Munaf with soft hands and for some reason they set off for a single which was never there in the first place, Gambhir looks back but Dhawan decides to sacrifice his wicket and goes ahead with the run as Munaf gathers the ball and takes out the middle stump 52/2
    13.2 de Villiers stays at the crease and tries to loft him straight, he doesn't get to the pitch of the ball and gets a top edge which swirls in the air for ages, Warne runs across from cover and takes the catch in the region of mid-off 92/4
    13.6 Mascaranhas signs off his bowling in the IPL in style! Pitches on the corridor outside off and straightens, Karthik pokes at it and gets a thin edge through to Rawat, Dimitri knows it and so does the umpire 94/5

    3.1 stepped out of the crease and away from the stumps to play inside out, the ball just rolls down towards mid-off and AB de Villiers runs in and dives full length in the air to hit the stump before Yusuf to get back into the crease 11/1
    10.4 catch of the tournament? Mishra flights it on middle and leg, Smith goes for the slog with the turn but doesn't get enough elevation to clear the boundary near deep midwicket, Yomahesh runs across from long-on and catches it just inches from the turf, that was simply stunning 86/3
    4.6 Unbelievable! Smith pulled to midwicket where it was collected quickly by Sehwag. But Smith was already running down the track while Kaif was still standing at the other end. Easy run-out as Sehwag lobs the ball to the keeper 15/2
    18.2 confusion! Patel gigs out a yorker top the off side and sets off for a risky run, Watson is sent back and he's miles out of his crease as the throw misses the stumps, they take a run anyway off the overthrow but Watson's really struggling to make his ground at the striker's end, the throw to Karthik is accurate and he whips off the bails. Now here's the drama - Delhi celebrate but umpire Steve Davis refuses to call for the third umpire, Delhi fielders are really peeved and Sehwag has a word with umpire Koertzen, Watson is also fuming about the situation, as if to suggest they get on with the game, finally the third umpire is called and gives Watson the marching orders. 150/7
    12.2 the googly! The ball pitches on middle and turns away slightly, Jadeja gets on his knee to sweep it square but plays too early as the ball strikes the offstump 99/4
    15.3 Sehwag cleverly cuts back on the pace and gives it plenty of air, Mascaranhas misses as he goes for the slog and the ball crashes onto leg and middle stump 127/5
    18.1 Warne tries to go for broke and goes for a wild swing, the legcutter lands on middle, straightens and takes out the middle stump 150/6
