    1.4 RP's golden arm works, perhaps the wrong shot from Jayasuriya, a slow start has frustrated him, and he looks to pull a delivery that is not short enough. It bounces a bit on him, too, and gets a top-edge that flies high, and the purple cap fits for RP 4/1
    10.5 and that's smart bowling again, almost a replay of the first ball, Tendulkar steps out, makes room to go over extra, but this is too full, and he ends up hitting it straight to Gibbs at extra cover. And once again, a wicket falls immediately after the time-out, and his timing has looked off right since the break 86/2
    14.3 what a big wicket, Ojha has struck thrice in three overs, with a fulltoss this time, Duminy steps down, and lofts it over the leg-side field, it seems like it has gone between deep dquare and midwicket, but Smith runs fast from deep square, very fast, to surprise everybody. Superb catch, looked comfortable in the end 105/4
    12.3 smart bowling again, this one was slower than the earlier ones, flighted too, Dhawan looks to slog it, and misses it completely, the off stump is out 92/3
    18.2 and Edwards has turned it for Deccan, what a big wicket, this was full and straight, Bravo was caught in the crease, looking to get inside it and go leg side, but Edwards was too sharp for that and hit him right in front. Is this the game? 144/6
    16.2 this is a day of the slingers, Edwards goes round the wicket, gets it full, almost a yorker, just outside off, Nayar goes for the big hit, and gets a thin edge through to Gilchrist. Deccan in front now 120/5
    19.3 and there RP gets his wicket, that surely has to be the game, it's a fulltoss, and Harbhajan's bat twirls in his hands as he gives it all his power, and the ball flies to long-on 154/7
