    2.5 he's gone! Rao's done it and the crowd comes to life! Jayasuriya gets down on one knee and sweeps another leg-stump delivery, he's hit it in the air and squarer this time, RP Singh is on the deep square leg boundary and the ball goes straight to him, he takes a flat catch and an extremely important one 39/1
    8.2 caught! Gilchrist will be relieved, Tendulkar charges Afridi and tries to loft the ball down the ground, there is a long off in place but the ball doesn't get that far, Tendulkar skies it high in the air and Silva runs towards mid-off from cover and takes a well-judged catch 72/2
    8.4 lbw! Thornely moves back in his crease and Afridi fires in the faster googly, Thornely doesn't pick it and gets struck plumb in front of his stumps, that's out and Harper thinks for a moment before sending Thornely packing 72/3
    17.4 caught! Nayar falls at a crucial time, he backs away towards the leg side to make room, RP bowls the ball short and at pace, Nayar tries to pull but mis-hits it high in the air towards point where Rohit Sharma takes a simple catch 150/5
    12.5 Afridi takes an excellent catch! Uthappa strides forward and lofts the ball high towards long-on, he's hit it pretty well and the ball looks like it may clear the boundary, Afridi's at long on and he moves towards his right, keeps his eyes on the ball and holds the catch about two feet inside the boundary, he makes sure that the momentum doesn't carry him over, there's a broad smile on his face for he's having a fantastic match 96/4

    4.2 caught! Deccan have taken a body blow! Fernando pitches short of a length and angles the ball into the left-hander, cramping Gilchrist for room, he tries to play the upper cut over backward point but only succeeds in offering a simple catch to Pinal Shah who runs in from third man and makes no mistake 20/2
    1.2 caught! What a catch by Thornely, Afridi tries to hit a six off his first ball and throws his bat at a good length ball outside off stump, he slices the ball high in the air, it's gone miles, Thornely runs backwards from around cover point, keeps his eyes fixed on the ball and takes an exceptional catch while on the run 7/1
    4.3 Sharma's lbw! Fernando goes over the wicket and delivers a perfectly-pitched slower ball that angles into the right-hander, Sharma tries to flick but is extremely early on the shot, he's nearly completed the stroke by the time the ball reaches him, seams a touch away from the right-hander, and thuds into his pads plumb in front of middle stump 20/3
    9.1 caught! Nayar's struck, Silva comes forward and tries to drive a good length ball that pitches around off stump and seams a fraction away from the right-hander, the ball goes past the outside edge and Takawale appeals for the catch, not too sure if there was an edge but Doctrove raises the finger 56/4
    17.1 Rao's gone and with it so have Decccan's slim hopes! Rao slashes at a ball that's a bit too far away from him, he slices the ball in the air over point, Shah pedals backwards and manages to hold on to the catch although he didn't get into a very good position 130/5
    17.3 bowled! That's another high full toss, Teja backs away towards leg and swings, he misses and Bravo hits the top of middle stump, he's thrilled for he's having a superb match before catching his flight back to the West Indies tonight 136/6
