    0.1 Lumb is plumb! Couldn't have been plumber had he been fixing pipes! Stays in the crease, walks across the stumps, Dinda bowls full, shapes in a bit, and he misses, and Rudi Koertzen's finger goes up slowly and surely 0/1
    8.2 poor call for second run! it's not too far of Mathews at deep fine leg and they still come through for the second and Mathews's flat rocket throw finds Ojha way short. Karthik doesn't collect it cleanly but the ball rebounds off his hands onto the top of the bails 72/3
    4.6 well maybe it's not exactly Faiz's day all the way, telegrams Bond before coming down the wicket and he bounces him, the mis-hit lobs straight to mid-off 42/2
    17.1 and Jhunjhunwala misses the fifty! makes room to club it into the leg side, the ball follows him and gets him high on the bat, and it's an easy catch at midwicket 142/5
    12.6 Dinda has got Pathan, good intelligent T20 bowling on a flat slow wicket! After slower offcutter, slower bouncer, slower bouncer, yorker, gives him a regulation bouncer this time, 126ks, it chases him on the shot and it gets the high part of the bat and he holes out to deep square leg 105/4

    17.3 edged and gone! poor shot really. wide delivery outside off and he goes after it and has to really reach out to be able to edge it. Would have been wide had he let it be 143/6
    18.2 Shane gets Shane! Looks to chip it over extra-cover but gets it way too straight, hitting it down long-off's throat 146/7

    2.6 timber! the leg-side field works for Rajasthan, Tiwary again looks to manufacture a cut shot into the off side and Yusuf is too full and too fast and he is ecstatic too 18/1

    14.1 bowled him! Hodge's insipid innings comes to an end, steps out too early, Pathan fires in at 101ks, short too, squeezes through the gap and he is gone! 95/3
    10.4 bowled him! That's not Pujara's shot, not from what I have seen in domestic cricket! Walks across the stumps, gets on a knee, ready for the heave over short fine, Sid T bowls a slower ball, and all he manages is an inside edge onto the middle stump 68/2
    19.2 he mis-hits again, finds a fielder this time, but it is too late for KKR I am afraid. Like Hodge, another insipid innings, gets too much under a length ball and holes out to deep midwicket 132/4

    19.3 Mathews is the new man in, and he walks out without even facing a delivery! Another yorker on the base of leg, they come through for a single, and Raut - the substitute - hits stumps direct from short fine 132/5
