    3.4 split-finger slower ball, you beauty! Once again Warner is late in reading this one, and decides to over mid-off, but the toe-end only ends up looping to nowhere, and Murtaza takes a smart catch running back from mid-off 39/1
    7.3 Delhi's trouble with run-outs continues! It is Sehwag once again going for a non-existent second. How many times have we seen Sehwag and Gambhir get too optimistic with their running? Hit slightly wide of Pollard at long-on, and he takes the arm on, and Pollard fires in a bullet adjacent to the stumps, and there is no desperate dive either to save himself 75/3
    6.4 Bhajji strikes! Gambhir, who generally creates length when facing spinners, gets too clever here. Shows Bhajji he is coming down, then rocks back, expecting a short ball, but Bhaj keeps his length and Gambhir gets a leading edge as he looks to turn this to leg. Easy return catch and Bhajji is pumped, kicks the ball away 72/2
    11.6 timber! All over for DK. All over for DD, I daresay. Arm ball again, Karthik, much like de Villiers, stays back to a fullish one, and his bat is late in coming down as it skids off the surface 94/6
    9.3 plumb! arm ball! AB stays back to a fullish one, and is reading it off the pitch, and he is caught dead in front 85/4
    10.5 Delhi are running like headless chickens! Collingwood is beaten as he looks to turn this to leg, the ball hits the pads and goes nowhere, but he wants a single, and Karthik does him no favours by haring down the wicket. Karthik recovers in time, but it is too late for Collingwood. And boy, does Pollard respond, keeps running in his follow through, fields it and underarm-flicks the stumps 90/5

    16.6 bowled him! They say aim for the top of off stump, and Fernando does just that. Only he doesn't pitch it, a full toss taking out top of off as Mishra swings inside the line 120/7
