    1.3 bowled him! Kaif charges down the track and swings across the line, he had to go for it, the asking-rate was climbing, the length and line is accurate from Sreesanth and he uproots off stump after Kaif misses 5/1

    10.6 castled! a quicker one, that's a toppie that hurries on to the batsman, he tries to pull but it crashes into the off stump, Niraj's cameo comes to and end, Piyush gives him a send off. Hope his mum isn't watching. 78/3
    4.5 cleaned him up, Younis attempts to slog across the line but the ball swings in a shade and rattles leg stump, he's been trying this shot for a while but Irfan is on target this time, Rajasthan lose wicket No.2 29/2
    12.2 he's holed out! full and punched straight into the throat of long-on, neatly struck but he's found the fielder, no distance there, Chawla gets his man. Irfan gets an easy catch. 99/4
    18.1 End of hopes, he's swung that to square leg and Marsh has pulled off a fine catch, diving forward and latching on clean, not that well timed from Yusuf this time. Hopes seals it 171/6
    14.1 got 'em! Akmal has holed out, down the track and he couldn't get the timing, lofted towards extra cover and Mota is waiting there, straight into his palms and one rapid innings ends 132/5

    18.6 and another, short ball but that was rising on him, too quick for Salunkhe and he can only get a skier as he tries to pull, high in the air but Hopes ensures he has it covered. 178/7
