    4.3 Irfan's classical inducker has struck, but not the way you would expect it to. As always it lands on off and middle and curls in, searching for the bat-pad gap, but Kallis has bounded outside off stump already. He ends up well outside and looks to flick as the ball moves in sharply, and Kallis' glance can't make contact. Leg stump. Clatter. 29/1
    6.1 Drumroll. Agarkar has struck first ball. And it might a poor decision. Unlucky for Goswami, who looks unhappy. Agarkar's knack for picking up wickets continues, even when the batsman is not actually out. No wait. The replay suggests he edged it. Full and wide outside off, Goswami looks to steer and it looked like he nicked it after all. Ojha completes the catch. 42/2
    11.5 for the first time in it's history, the Kotla cheers Gambhir's exit. Hopes keeps it on a length around middle and leg at a friendly pace, Gambhir lines him up and looks to cart a six over deep midwicket, but ends up hitting it high rather than far. When it comes down, Venu at deep midwicket was under it. 82/3

    14.5 Pathan c Pathan b Yadav. Umesh does well, again ensuring it's not full enough for the drive, and Yusuf goes for his patent muscled slam over long on. The ball is again onto him faster than he thought, and he ended up lofting it straight to Irfan at long on. Easy catch, but given whose it was, and that he's fielded badly today, Irfan would have felt the pressure. After all, big brother was watching. 105/4
    14.6 Quick Gun Morgan, gone before you noticed. This is really good bowling from Umesh, another short ball that comes along faster than the batsman expected. Morgan was clearly caught by surprise, and ended up losing the grip on the bat as he swung the pull. It went nowhere, and the keeper got under it. 105/5
    18.6 Irfan has held another catch! And this one was pretty good too. RTD looks to hoist Morne over the covers this time, and ends up hitting it high into the night. Irfan runs in from deep point and holds on as he tumbles forward. 140/6
    19.5 aha, the running has been funny this over. Lee's gone this time, despite the dive, which was poorly timed and he ended up sprawled at full stretch outside the crease. Tiwary again gets it away to the midwicket region and seemed content for one. Lee wanted to give the strike back and again rain almost halfway back before turning. Good throw from Nagar, and Ojha does the rest. 145/7

    1.6 that's the end of Warner, he's not looked himself in the last couple of games. Again stuck pre-meditatedly on the back foot, and goes for a compulsive cut though Balaji kept this very tight outside off. The resultant under edge crashed into the stumps. Bala is chuffed. 14/1
    6.4 Unadkat has picked up the most important wicket of the day. He's got Sehwag on the pull, with another serious bouncer. 134 kph, hurries onto Sehwag who this time goes for the shot. He was clearly late on it, and ended up top-edging as it got big on him. Fine leg was waiting. 43/2
    14.2 KKR move closer to the win. Hopes is gone now, cutting a short ball outside off straight to cover. He's hardly come forward, and is probably hampered by the injury. He's just hacked this half-tracker straight to cover. 83/5
    10.3 this time, no Pathan c Pathan. This time, it is Pathan c RTD. Looks like Irfan was the designated attacker in this stand, he skated out to the first ball of spin he was facing and looked to cart him with the spin over midwicket. Didn't hit it well enough, and RTD settled under it in the deep. 61/3
    13.1 Delhi are sinking. Birt bites the dirt. Yusuf gets him with another fired-in short ball. Birt went for the pull but that hurried on him, and he ended up lofting straight to Shakib at deep midwicket. 75/4
    18.2 Lee, you champion. He's produces a one-of-a-kind run-out, seemed like a scene out of NBA this. Length ball outside off, Venu goes for a big swipe and misses. Nagar comes for the single, Venu responds, the keeper collects, Lee arrests his follow through and back pedals towards the non-striker's stumps. The throw is looped in high, Lee leaps up to collect, and then twists mid-air and then slam-dunks the stumps down from a big height. Venu was stuck behind Lee, not that he even had a chance of making his crease. Spectacular. 123/7
    14.5 Ojha combusts. He's not managed to get to the pitch of the ball, or cover for the spin. He's just blindly hoicked Abdulla into the Kotla night, and Lee settles down under it, well inside the straight boundary. 85/6
    19.5 Nagar is gone now, he's not timed the pull to another slower bouncer, he looked to swat it from well outside off, and ended up popping it to the keeper. 130/9
    18.3 another duck for Agarkar. Lee sends down another thunderbolt yorker outside off, Nagar squeezes to mid off, Agarkar has hared halfway down before turning back. Easier collection and finish from Lee this time. 123/8
