    2.3 through the gate! Steyn take a bow, he bowls it fuller and straight at the stumps, Gibbs was beaten for pace, went straight through and hit the off and middle stumps, the stumps are upright and the bails go flying, 143 kph there 14/3
    0.4 Gilly has walked! Steyn angles it across the left-hander, very minimal fott movement, gets a thin edge to the keeper, Uthappa knows it immediately 1/1
    0.5 he's on a hat-trick! Excellent bowling and field placement, he digs it in short to the Indian batsman, he uneasily fends it off his body and Taylor is there at backward short leg to take the easiest of catches 1/2
    18.1 the well-set Rohit goes! He chips a few paces down to a length ball and tries to swat it over wide long-on, it's a big ground so doesn't get enough elevation, Pandey runs to his right from long-on and takes it 133/6
    12.3 No communication at all! Apanna bowls over the wicket, Rohit drives down to deep cover and settles for a single, Mishra charges out for the second but fails to glance at Rohit who signalled him to stay put at the other end, Steyn's throw was accurate to the keeper and Mishra was stuck at Rohit's end, Mishra wasnt paying attention at all to his partner 96/4
    17.3 lucky for Uthappa! Symonds goes for a huge swing at a delivery from round the wicket and misses, his back foot is a inch or two out of the crease, Uthappa fails to pouch it but the ball rebounds off his gloves and hits the stumps before Symonds can drag his foot back, third umpire takes a look 131/5

    0.1 Harris strikes first ball! He lands it a touch wide outside off and has Pandey fishing at it, the ball moves away off the seam and takes the edge, poor shot and just the start Deccan needed 0/1
    13.3 Kallis tries to open up, he chips down the track and tries a straight six, he lofts it several miles in the air, almost as if he was aiming for the blimp, Sumanth takes it well at long-on 95/3
    10.3 against the run of play! Symonds cuts back on the pace and he bowls an off break, Dravid was lured by the flight and he ended up lofting it down long-off's throat 74/2
    18.1 could be the most important strike of the match! Harmeet bowls yet another leg cutter and Uthappa swishes hard and misses it completely, knocks the off stump 134/7
    14.5 RP take a bow! He bowls a superb yorker on the leg stump line, Taylor once again plays all around it and misses it completely, the ball knocks the leg stump back 101/4
    15.3 Sumanth in action again! Ojha gives it more air, Kohli is tempted into the loft and he gets forward and lofts it flat down Sumanth's throat at long-on 104/5
    16.2 well Symonds was in action after all! White stays at the crease and tries to slam it straight down the ground, thick top edge and it swirls towards long-on, Symonds runs across to his left and takes the skier 110/6
    19.3 timber! Harris fires a yorker on the off stump, the batsman makes room again and swings, the off stump is flattened 137/9
