    5.4 Vinay gets a rocket launched back at him, just to his left, and his reflexes are sharp enough to pluck it, and his adrenalin charged enough to smack it into the ground, boy, Warner had flat-batted the length ball savagely 43/1
    6.1 wow, gentle length ball angled in, and Sehwag flicks it into the captain's hands at midwicket, not much of a sendoff from his Delhi [Ranji] team-mate this time, Kohli is just delighted 43/2
    11.1 pitched up this time and swung straight down to long on, tried to launch it down the ground, could not get enough on it 73/3
    17.6 Mahela has to go back, seems he;s been there for an age, never got going, but what an unfortunate end, Jadhav has connected with the slog, the ball is headed down the ground, but it has clipped Vinay's boot in his followthrough and crashed into Mahela's stumps 122/5
    14.1 Unadkat gets a gift of a wicket and lets out a roar, Rohrer's cracked this short ball right off the middle, and picked out Kohli at deep midwicket with a flat hit 91/4

    3.3 Umesh takes his engagement gift from Gayle, who flays at a fuller one, and it goes screaming down to Umesh at third man 26/2
    2.6 his chancy stay is over, and Nehra waves him off, tries to slog a length ball and top-edges it tamely to mid on 20/1
    18.4 that has to be it, what a meltdown, absolute meltdown, Virat is furious at having done this, he's smashed this overpitched delivery in the air, and Mahela has made no mistake to his left at extra cover, Kohli swishes his bat violently a couple of times and walks back, mouthing anything and everything that comes to his mind 138/7
    15.6 that is gone, AB is running straight off, he took on Morne from mid off after a forcing hit to the fast bowler, was always going to struggle, and this was a direct hit 129/3
    16.2 another one, nothing shot from McDonald, hes skipped out and popped this length ball straight back to the bowler 129/4
    17.6 madness, Arun Karthik made some room and swung over mid on, Irfan chased all the way and pulled it back just inside, Karthik was happy with two, Kohli would have been on strike next over, but Virat wanted the third, Karthik was too late to start and Morkel did the rest 136/5
    18.3 RCB are crumbling like a sand castle, Syed Mohammad tries to get under a length ball, but he's slogged it straight to Warner at long on 138/6
