    0.4 But the word makes no difference. McCullum pokes at one that shapes away, no footwork at all, gets the outside edge and Sanga has to dive forward to take it. Early breakthrough for the Chargers 0/1
    3.6 And it is a mobile number indeed, one with a five in for Sharma. Jayawardene walks, as Sanga catches his best mate out. Steep bounce on offer and Sharma bowls a good length, climbs on Jayawardene and he gets an edge through to Sanga. 11/6
    1.2 oh my goodness! The seam movement is just stunning and its the extra bounce is what gets Patel. He has a prod and is caught behind. Deccan right back in this, suddenly 130 looks like 150. 1/2
    1.3 yowza! Ishant Sharma is on fire. Kept low and drew the Gomez onto the front foot but snuck through him and cleaned him up. 1/3
    1.5 this is is a terrific display from Ishant. Fuller delivery, Hodge has no idea what has hit him, but he knows iits hit his stumps. No footwork at all, the ball slants in and bowls him. 2/4
    3.1 Sharma! You Superstar! Straight delivery and traps Jadhav on the front pad, just on the roll and it's not too tough to call this out. Jadhav is the fifth batsman to depart for a duck in Kochi's innings. 6/5
    15.4 launches but doesn't launch far enough. Down on one knee, slog sweeps that to Christian at deep mid-wicket who collects on the boundary 73/8
    10.4 and we're back into wicket mode. Perera tries to pull that and he is hurried into the stroke. It ends up going to cover and Cameron White takes the catch. 47/7
    16.2 Goner! That's a full, straighter one, held it's line and there was very little Vinay Kumar could have done about that. Offstump is castled and the end is near. Jayawardene looks increasingly glum in the pod 74/9
    not out
    16.3 All over. Steyn finished with two wickets in two balls. Yorker length and RP was backing away and that came off his pad to dislodg the bail. Comprehensive win for the Chargers, who looked dead and buried mid way through their innings and came back with a bowling performanace that was simply phenomenal. 74/10
