    3.4 he stopped doing that after Pakistan 2004, ripper from Balaji, pitches on a length on middle and zips away to hit off stump, the perfect delivery, no one can do anything about that, not even Shan Watson who is the form of his life, he has to go 24/1
    4.4 after Balaji, it is Iqbal, the classic left-arm spinner's trick, draws the batsman out with some flight, beats the batsman, gets it to turn past him, and the keeper does the rest 28/2

    6.5 super stuff from Iqbal, brilliant presence of mind, it was pushed in the air way to his right, he charged after the ball to stop the single, picked it up with a dive, and then looked to throw it to the keeper, but stopped for an instant, saw the non-striker had backed up too far, and hit his stumps with a direct throw 38/3
    13.6 Menaria succeeds in what he was trying to do, waits for the short one close to off, and connects with the upper cut, but the ball flies at a nice height to third man who runs some steps to his right and happily takes it, nothing going right for Rajasthan, Balaji all over them 79/7
    10.5 more trouble for Rajasthan, this time it is Taylor, overbalances and walks outside the crease looking to work a flatter one turning down leg side, misses the ball and Bisla pulls off a smart stumping, whipping off the bails with one hand to catch Ross just short 67/5
    13.1 Rahane comes down the track, and gets in to a very awkward position, Balaji angles it in on a length, it even cuts back in, and Rahane ends up having a weak stab outside the line, and the ball uproots middle stump, it's been a long struggle for Rajasthan, this innings 78/6

    14.4 that man at silly mid off was playing on his mind, he was pegged on the back foot, Shakib did him in with the arm ball, did not turn, skidded straight on, kept low, and clatter! go the stumps 80/8
    14.5 Shakib Al Hasan on a hat trick, tossed up this time, draws him forward, pushing outside the line for the turn, there isn't any, goes straight on and strikes timber, Shakib is pumped up, intelligent bowling from the Bangladesh captain 80/9
    15.2 Brett Lee goes full and fast, too much for Trivedi, bat comes down late, and Brett uproots middle stump, punches the air, Kolkata have run away with this one 81/10
