    4.2 top delivery from Alfonso, he's nailed Watto with the classic away seamer. Probably not entirely intended, it came out with a scrambled seam, but landed on the thread outside off after angling in, and straightened. Watson did not spot the deviation, got half forward and drove, but it kissed the outside edge and settled into Uthappa's gloves. Gone. 29/1
    7.1 there's something about this IPL, it just doesn't let Dravid carry on with his starts, and he seems to keep getting out to soft dismissals. Here's another. His namesake drops this short and slow, it sits up like a cookie that has to be consumed in a hurry, Dravid goes for the pull and ends up slapping it right back at the bowler. Nicely held. 43/2
    10.1 another reverse sweep expert perishes to the reverse sweep today. Rahul Sharma fires this in very full on middle, Botha tries to take it on the full and reverse slap it through third man, but the ball thuds into his boot before the bat can come down. Plumb and given by Taufel. I reckon even Tarapore would have given this out. 59/3
    14.1 is it too late in the game? Rahul Sharma has got Menaria to mis-hit one of his big swings into the leg side. Superb catch from Alfonso Thomas, who, for me, has been the best Pune player in this IPL. This was in the slot, Menaria lined him up and looked to go downtown, but lofted it towards wide long-on. Alfonso runs across from long-on and takes it. 92/4
