    7.5 bowled him, Abdulla is elated and sets off a celebratory run, not exactly his greatest delivery but he doesn't care, it was a slightly short ball, Gilchrist shaped to mow that to the leg side, but it skids on and he misses the ball and is nutmegged, through his leg and on to the stumps, Dav Whatmore pumps his fists in the dug out 44/3
    4.3 Valthaty is gone, he hasn't had much strike so far, he spies a slightly short one, Valthaty takes on the fielder at long-on, the flat-batted hit doesn't have enough power behind it, it sails only as far as Manoj Tiwary 32/1
    5.6 disaster for Punjab, Marsh is gone, that wasn't great running from them, Abdulla fired the ball in from round the wicket, struck the pads, prompting a big appeal, Marsh was seeing the ball as it bobbled square on the off side, Gilchrist was already halfway down when Marsh looks up to see him charging, he puts his hand out to ask Gilchrist to stop but it is too late, Marsj has no chance at all to make it to the non-striker's end 40/2
    19.4 one more run out? moves towards leg and carves the ball towards cover, throw fired in to the keeper, who is a yard away from the stumps, he throws the ball onto the stumps and Karthik is gone, perhaps he might have made his ground if he dived, smartly done by Shreevats 117/6
    9.2 another run-out, terrible cricket this from Punjab, a defensive push from Karthik towards point, Morgan swoops on to that and the throw is a tough high for the keeper, who takes off the bails even as Nayar puts in a dive, thats not enough for Nayar, and things getting bad to worse for Punjab, the Edeh Gardens crowd are enjoyed the Saturday night 53/4
    14.6 another big lbw appeal, this time the umpire is convinced, the big wicket of Hussey for Abdulla, he's having a great season, this was fired in quick, Hussey looking for the spin but there isn't no extravagant turn, slips past the bat and on to the pad, was that doing enough to take legstump? I'm not sure it was, the umpire does though 86/5
