    14.4 swinging low fulltoss, and Jayasuriya makes room and finds the width, but can't clear Ghosh at point. It just took the toe of the bat, but a special innings from Jaya 148/3
    12.2 finally they get a wicket, Tendulkar shuffles a long way, looking to hit a full, incoming delivery into the leg side, and misses. It would have taken the leg stump. Nonetheless what a superb innings, one of the best of this IPL 127/1
    13.5 he has got him with a fulltoss, nice inviting fulltoss on the middle stump, Harbhajan hits it cleanly, but doesn't get the elevation and hits straight to Mendis at deep midwicket 146/2

    15.1 and a run-out right away, quick carrom delivery, takes the pad on the way to short fine, Nayar wants one, but Duminy sends him back. Nayar had taken four steps, yet couldn't make his way back. There was never a run in this, even though Shukla was quite quick 151/4
    16.6 another one goes, good bouncer, perfect height, in front of Bravo's face, he hooks, gets a top-edge, Gayle runs back from square leg and takes the catch coolly. Now 51 for 5 from last seven overs 162/5
    18.5 Ishant has got his Delhi team-mate, with a short one, extra bounce there, Dhawan looks to make room and cut, and gets a big edge through to McCullum. It's now 6 for 64 after the break 175/6

    1.6 Malinga strikes, strikes big, just back of a length, seems it held on to the surface a bit, McCullum is checks the shot, but hits it in the air towards point, and Duminy takes a low catch in front of him 8/1
    2.6 there's only one West Indian smiling now, and it's not Gayle. What a revenge for that clubbed six, he gets this to get big on Gayle, short angling across, Gayle looks to push it, but the extra bounce takes the edge, which flies to the sole slip, the wide slip 17/2

    10.2 plays all around it, it was a length ball, stright, there for the big shot, but Hodge plays an unnatural shot, looking to go over midwicket, and misses, exposing the middle stump. Another one bites the dust immediately after the break 71/3
    12.1 Ganguly has flown it to the moon and back, makes room to hit it over cover, but this is a stright delivery, top-edges it way into the air, and Bravo takes an easy catch at cover 80/4
    13.2 Kolkata are falling apart now, end is nigh, Bravo bowls just back of a length, and Yashpal looks to go over extra cover, and edges faintly 83/6
    12.3 Oh my Ghosh, he has flicked it straight to short midiwcket, Sachin Tendulkar. This is soft, really soft. Straight delivery, flicked in the air and an easy catch to Sachin 81/5
    14.5 good judgement from Jayasuriya, at the long-on boundary, this was a length delivery on the stumps and Shukla got under it, clean shot but doesn't have the power to to clear long-on, where Jayasuriya takes an overhead catch, inches inside the boundary 91/7

    15.1 team-mate to team-mate, and what a beauty, Malinga is already backing away looking to save his toes, but Malinga bowls an accurate slower delivery, 100ks, there is nothing defending the stumps here, and the leg stump goes out 95/8
    15.2 leg stump again, it's all over, Malinga can't go for the hat-trick because Anureet Singh won't bat. This was a perfect yorker, full, fast, low, base of leg stump, Dinda saves the toe, little mercy that 95/10
