    7.1 Has he got Ponting first ball? They are checking whether it carried to shortish backward point, it has been taken cleanly by the fielder low to his left, the question is whether Ponting drove it into the pitch first, replays show that ain't the case, and Yuvraj has broken the partnership 54/1
    8.2 excellent effort from Mitch Marsh on the edge of the long on boundary, looked like he'd lost it, but he's recovered to take it over his head and tumbled down hard with the effort, Finch slowing it down further and tossing it up, Sachin left the crease immediately to have a go, but wasn't to the pitch, had to reach out and ended up skying it 60/2
    15.1 and he's needed one ball to strike, and DK is the man to go, offcutter coming in a long way, hitting him in front as he comes forward, not much doubt about that 115/3

    0.1 bowled him first ball, full and fast inswinger, and Finch has played all around it, what a ripper to get first up 0/1
    2.3 Mitch is through another one, inswinger working big time, Uthappa tries to straight drive a good length delivery, he ends up pushing outside the line as Mitch sneaks in one more, off stump, it's time for evening walk 13/3
    1.1 what a waste, more trouble for Pune, Uthappa pulls to square leg, Taylor wants the single, he is too far up the pitch before he turns back, Ojha makes a mess initially of the take as the throw arrives, but still has enough time to catch Taylor short 5/2
    9.4 he;s connected with another one, but has found Dhawan at deep midwicket, Dhawan ran in first, it came zooming into him, and he adjusted well to hold on 71/5
    5.2 end of the fun for Suman, and a wicket for Harbhajan, who tosses it up once more, and Suman lofts it to Pollard at long in some way in from the boundary 38/4
    12.2 Angelo holes out, not to the pitch as he skips out to a tossed up ball which dips, goes through with the shot, Rohit settles under the steepler, and as casually as he hits cover drives, he takes the catch too, Jonty Rhodes sitting right behind in the dugout claps 89/6
    16.4 MI have been top drawer with their catching, here's another one, Marsh slicing it into the sky over sweeper cover, Dhawan settled under it, seemed to lose the ball as it came down but tumbled to take it safely in the end 127/8
    15.3 Nayar has succeeded in holing out this time, to long off, tried to get under this very full one and loft it, picked out Pollard 120/7
