    2.3 Robin flies and pouches a good catch! It was a length delivery outside off stump, not much room there, and Blizzard tries to cut. The ball flies off the edge towards first slip almost but Robin Uthappa takes a step to his left and then dives with an outstretched left hand to take a stunner 18/1
    8.2 It's Jessy's turn to fly after Robin. Tendulkar moved outside leg and went inside-out to left of short extra cover. Just one little thing stood in his way. Well, one solid big thing. Jesse Ryder flew to his left to hold on to a good catch. Tendulkar survived that lbw but is gone now 58/2
    10.6 Yuv Raj! Rayudu rushes down the track for the big hit but ends up slicing it to long-off. Robin Uthappa gets across and ruffles a stone-faced Yuvraj's hair. 69/3
    14.2 Rahul gets just desserts! Rohit went for the slog sweep but this was turning away from the off stump line. And Rohit ended up top edging it towards deep mid-on where Pandey catches it on the rebound. It popped out and fell back in to his palms. 96/4
    16.3 What a tournament this Rahul Sharma is having. Splendido! He tosses this up, slows up the pace and perhaps that fooled the batsman. Suman went for the big hit and ended up slicing it in the air and long-off moves in to take an easy catch. Fine fiery knock it was. 114/5
    19.6 gets outside leg and goes for a slog to the on side but ends up slicing it to Yuvraj at covers. Very fine over from Jerome. 160/7
    17.5 Full delivery. Whack. The ball settles into Manish's palms at long-on. Brad Hogg coos in the air: "Pandee takes in the candy" 124/6

    0.1 Ryder falls for a first-ball duck. It was floated full in length outside off and Ryder goes hard into an off drive. He only manages to slice a dolly to backward point. 0/1
    18.2 Manish had to go for it. He went. He couldn't clear long-on though. Rohit times his jump and takes it. 119/5
    3.4 Another man down. Smith moves outside leg and Munaf hurls a bouncer and at the body. Smith was cramped for room and by the pace on it and ends up mistiming the pull shot. The ball lobs gently to midwicket 17/2
    8.4 Abhishek falls even as the required run rate climbs over 10. Abhishek went down the track, looking for the slog but top-edged it straight up. Rayudu jogged forward to take a simple catch 46/3
    12.5 What a ball. What a shot. What a catch! It was a nagging awkward lifter. Right at the body. No escape for Yuvraj who tried his best to twist his body and get out of the way. The body got out of the line of fire but the bat was held up like a periscope. The ball crashed into the bat and ricocheted to third man where Munaf Patel takes a tumbling catch. Yuvraj too tumbled and fell after he played that "shot" 77/4

    18.6 A gem of a slower one. Loopy and dipping on a length and Mithun had no clue. He stabbed out at it and the ball lobbed to left of Malinga who rushed and lunged to pouch it. 128/6
    19.5 Wagh is run out. He bottom edged the drive to the keeper, wanted a run and couldn't get back in time to beat the throw from Rayudu garu 139/7
