    13.1 well taken there! KP tosses it up wide, Gilchrist drives hard and flat but Virat Kohli intercepts it at short extra cover with a lovely leaping catch high to his left 127/3
    3.5 he's given him! PK pitches it full on middle and leg stump, Gibbs is late on the attempted flick across the line and umpire Sahiba raises his finger in a flash ... replays show the ball was hitting leg stump 46/1
    7.1 and he strikes first ball, what a guy! Pitches it up and Laxman drives on the rise but he doesn't get all the elevation needed and picks out a tumbling Steyn running in from long-off, diving forward and then holding the ball as he trips 66/2
    18.2 ah, a cheeky attempt to go across the sticks ends his fine innings! Rohit walks right across to well outside off stump but the ball is not as straight as he would have liked, then he closes the face early and pops up an easy catch that KP, running in from mid-on, takes near the nonstriker's stumps ... but take a bow, son, that is a fine innings to boost Deccan 172/5
    15.3 caught PK, bowled KP! Another big swing across the line but he's gotten underneath this one a bit too much, its very high and finds an animated Praveen out at wide long-on 147/4
    18.6 slower ball, leg cutter down the pads, Teja shuffles and plays it away toward square leg, there's some hesitation as he turns back for the second and his partner cannot get back in time as a good flat throw comes back ... got to feel for Rao there, sold down the river because Teja urged him on but then stopped in his tracks 174/6

    0.1 what a ripper and Ryder's nightmare continues! He got a second-ball duck in the first game, was dropped for the second, and goes first ball on return! An express yorker from Edwards beats the bat and pegs back the off stump, fantastic start 0/1
    7.2 great catch out at deep midwicket! Another firm shot from Uthappa, picking the length and pulling it flat over the infield but its that man Ravi Teja who sprints across and dives to his left to hold a beauty ... really good catch, he had ground to cover and was chasing a hard ball 38/3
    3.5 got him at cover! Pitched up wide to be hit but Kallis, as he has so often in his international career, slaps the half-volley straight to Rohit on the off side, who takes it easily 19/2
    10.3 clever bowling, daft shot, simple stumping! Ojha tosses it up unabashedly, lures KP out of his crease, playing across his stumps, he misses all ends up and Gilchrist mops up 62/4
    15.4 gone! Dravid gives Styris the charge, who holds back the length, Dravid slaps the ball in the air but picks out a running fielder down at a sort of wide long-off 115/5
    19.4 takes a few steps and ends up giving Gibbs an easy catch at long-on 158/8
    16.3 slower ball, a touch shorter, Bishnoi slashes and gets the toe end of the bat on ball, it rolls down in front of Gilchrist, who collects and throws it down the other end to get Bishnoi ... he was called on by Kohli but didn't react 123/6
    17.4 good catch from the old man! Karan again makes room and reaches out to bottom-edge a very wide delivery, Gilchrist flings himself to his left and pouches it low 134/7
