    6.1 loose running, a good throw, and Patel has to go! Better ball, flatter on middle and leg, Bailey turns it wide of square leg and sets off, Patel reaches out to ground his bat home as the throw comes in from Shukla, its a direct hit and replays show he was a few inches short 59/1
    9.1 slow ball, flighted well up on off stump, Raina gets over it to smother the turn, the ball rolls toward point and they set off, Raina makes it easily but Bailey is struggling and dives full stretch but the fielder doesn't have to do much except nail a good flat throw and Bailey's dive is in vain ... truth be told, that wasn't a good run because the ball went right to the man at point 78/2
    16.6 gone to a full toss of all things! Dinda slips out a wide full toss, Raina slogs and gets a thick outside edge that spirals up and settles right in backward point's hands 152/3

    13.6 oh what do we have here? McCullum goes for a slog to a flat one just outside off stump and misses out, the ball scoots under the bat and somehow skims the off stump, they refer it after a thought as there's some doubt as to whether Dhoni uprooted the bails, but on close speculation it is evident that the ball dislodged the bail before Dhoni did, so McCullum has to go after a rollicking effort that has kept Kolkata in the hunt 124/2
    4.4 not sure what he's upto! Ganguly makes room to cut, the ball pitches shorter and turns away, Ganguly again cannot middle the ball and inside-edges onto the base of leg stump ... the bail pops up ... Dhoni immediately realises before anyone else, in fact Ganguly was setting off for a bye but then looks back and sees the horror before him 34/1

    15.2 another one goes and Chennai are taking hold of the chase! Its a slider, quicker one, raps the pads as Hodge tries to turn it fine, Hussey sees the ball running off the pads toward point and sets off but then turns back as the single was just not on, Murali runs back and collects a good throw and finds Hussey just short of his mark, Kolkata really are slipping now 133/3
