    4.5 Done in by the slower one and by his own adrenalin rush. Shikhar went for the big hit but it was the back-of-hand slower one and he ended up dragging the full delivery from outside off to deep midwicket 40/1
    10.1 Hushed silence in the arena. Well not really, not many people there actually. He went down the track and lofts this to long-on. Gone! 69/4
    5.3 Sanga is gone. Just like that. Shilpa Shetty roars. Oh well. It was a short-of-length delivery that bounced even as it cut away from Sanga who opened the bat-face and pushed out at it. The keeper lunges to his left to pouch it. Shilpa sways, Trivedi roars, and I need a drink 40/2
    7.5 Slower slower and slow death. It was yet another slower one and Chipli goes for the pull. Too early into the shot and he ends up dragging it to his stumps. 53/3
    12.6 Duminy has been having some trouble picking Warne and he is gone now. He went down the track looking for the leg break. It didn't turn in much. And he ended up slicing it to the off side and long-off ran in to pouch that 77/5
    17.3 Caught at deep midwicket. Trivedi sees the batsman charging out and hurls in a bouncer. Daniel is no position for the pull and ends up swatting an easy catch to the deep. 114/6
    19.1 The bouncer. The pull shot. The good catch at fine-leg. Teja pulled it to fine-leg where Ashok rushed in, slid forward to take it 130/7
    19.3 They have a fielder between deep midwicekt and long-on and Steyn finds the man. It was the short delivery and he pulled it straight to Botha 134/8
