    0.4 Adam Gilchrist walks, he went for the pull to a delivery that bounced a lot around leg stump, good pace from Thomas, and Gilchrist could only get some bat on it through to the keeper who held the snorter, Thomas is delighted 2/1
    1.2 flicked right to the man at short fine leg, another full delivery angled in on leg stump, Marsh timed it well, too well, as it carried to short fine leg, who dived forward to take the low catch, Pune have taken out the openers 5/2
    2.4 another one goes, on this wicket this shot is not on, just about short of a length outside off, and he had a go at it from the crease, went in the air for a simple catch to point, the extra bounce did him in 9/3
    3.3 Wagh gets another one, and he is delighted, points a finger to his forehead in wisdom, short and wide outside off stump, the extra bounce consumes another batsman, he slashed at it, and got it to weakly loop in the air, hung around for some time before settling in third man;s hands, could not control the shot in the end 9/4
    8.3 ho hum, another one falls, floated wide and full outside off stump, Nayar gets forward and has a go at it, but loops it in the air for a dolly to backward point, walks away looking at the toe end of his bat 45/6
    5.5 well, well, if the wickets are not coming, Punjab will gift them away, mindless running, Gautam Gambhir looks like the safest runner compared to this, another pull, this one went to mid on on the bounce, Sunny charged down for the run, despite Nayar putting up a hand to him to stay put, he kept charging and charging even as Nayar had already turned his back to him while always putting up his hand, then Sunny stopped near Nayar to have an argument, the ball meanwhile found its way to the keeper, and Sunny will have to walk back and continue the argument in the dugout 36/5
    not out
    17.1 Uthappa takes a skier, Chawla backed away and tried to flick a fuller ball over square leg, Wagh followed him outside leg stump, and he got it off the edge very high in the air, but Robin judged the catch perfectly 80/7
    19.1 eep, that is a strange shot from PK, Parnell fired this one in full and on leg stump, he went for a flick on one air, but got a leading edge that looped up safely to Uthappa 102/8
