    1.1 he strikes first ball. Played on by Dhawan who looks to glide it to third man. Perhaps he played it for the swing but it went straight and cramped him up. Too close to his body for that shot 7/1
    9.4 Chawla takes out SRT again, and raises his arm in quiet triumph! Tendulkar looks for the big sweep again, but this is the straighter one and he ends up swinging outside the line of it, and is bowled 70/4
    5.6 quicker one, and he has really fired this toppie in, 96.4kph, and speeding up all the time, and an unsuspecting Rayudu has been done in and bowled through the gate as he looks to flick it to on 51/2
    7.3 quick quick stumping, a googly pushed through him, and it beats Tiwary. His foot drags onto the line and Sanga is alert to it, and is super quick in whipping the bails off - which is why Sanga, and not Bisla, should keep wicket for Punjab 59/3
    19.6 another slower ball, and it beats Zaheer's swipe and Sanga hits direct to deny them the leg-bye 154/9
    13.4 well bowled, well kept, slower offcutter, gets an edge from Sathish that is dying on the keepr but Sanga perhaps knew that a slower one was coming and stood closer than usual and takes this easily 96/5
    17.5 with that little margin of error, beautifully bowled yorker, 132kph, seems it is middle-stump line, moves away a touch, beats Pollard who is making room, and uproots the off stump 134/6
    19.3 oh he is doing well here! Another slower ball, and Harbhajan is early into the shot on the leg side, it comes almost of the back of the bat, and lobs to Sanga 152/7
    19.5 and he keeps getting slower and slower, 94.7kph, and McLaren steos out and wafts and is through with the shot when the ball arrives and hits the stumps 154/8

    10.1 Duminy into the attack, and the goat mouth has been put on Barath! Duminy bowls from round the stumps, and Barath sweeps and misses. Not sure if straightened enough, but he has been given. Clipping off, says the simulation device 87/2
    4.3 drama! slower ball again, Mahela hits straight to Tiwary at mid-on, who hold onto the catch safely, tumbles over, and when he is about to throw the ball up, it slips out of his hand. Mahela is walking, but Barath asks him to hold on. The umpires reckon he had it in control for enough time for it to classify as a catch. Got to agree perhaps, wasn't like the famous Gibbs non-catch, he held it for longer before he let it slip 41/1
    18.3 there is another twist coming! Sanga is gone! Quicker delivery, 143kph, and Sanga holes out to long-off. Your turn to bat, Mr Sodhi. "Finish it off," Sanga tells Pathan as he walks off 147/4
    16.3 Pollard strikes with the ball after failing with the bat! Slightly slower short ball, and Yuvraj gets too much under the pull shot, holing out to deep midwicket where Duminy holds onto a smart overhead catch 125/3
