    4.4 he hasn't overstepped this time. Uthappa misses another full toss. He has moved too far across to play this to leg. The ball is swinging in, and his him on the full, and in front of middle. Gone 25/2
    2.5 Johnson strikes early once again. Just short of a length, Finch wants to drive, the ball comes on slowly, and he ends up hitting it straight to short cover 13/1
    12.6 he has found Rayudu as if he was his long-lost best friend. Full toss, knee high, middle and leg. He could have launched it anywhere, but has timed it straight to deep midwicket. They are checking it for a no-ball on height, but it is knee high only. Praveen Kumar must be wondering what the hell is this. They refused to check a chest-high no-ball for him when he could have won them a match. I am being told you can check for no-balls only if a wicket has fallen. Clear signs you need better people on the technical committee 84/3
    13.5 Singh is King. Harbhajan. Not Yuvraj. Harbhajan is capping off a good spell excellently. He has been changing his pace well, and this one is pushed in slightly. Lands on a length, outside off, holds its line against the angle, beats the outside edge, hits him on the back pad. In front of off. Gone 85/5
    13.3 stop the press. Tendulkar has hit a direct hit. And he has a wicket. The doosra from Harbhajan, he has dabbed it to short third man, and takes off for one. Tendulkar lets it rip, and takes out the middle of middle at the non-striker's end. This was a no-ball, but not called. Mathews would still have been out even if it was called a no-ball, by the way 85/4
    19.3 Nayar's innings ends too. Gets a half-volley outside off, but can;t get under it, and drives this straight to Harbhajan at long-off 109/7
    17.3 slower bouncer. Richardson is early into the shot and is cramped for room, and ends up lobbing it to long-on for a single catch 99/6

    19.6 plucked a one-hander with his left hand after having misjudged it. Smith has run it too far at long-off when he realises the ball is sailing over him, and then he goes in the air, over his shoulder and plucks this out with the left hand 112/8

    0.1 Dinda has taken the off stump first ball. What a beauty first ball. Just short of that driving length, on off, and then swings away against the angle. Smith has played the line, but has lost his off stump. It hits top of off 0/1
    4.3 the long-on is back, and Tendulkar has obliged him. Carrom ball, on off, doesn't turn much. It seems Tendulkar is trying to chip it back over Mendis's head, but the ball hasn't turned and he ends up closing the face a little. A sitter for long-on 25/2
    7.2 Mumbai are making a mess of this chase. This is tossed up wide, Karthik wants to slog-sweep it, and ends up slicing it to long-off 39/3
    18.2 wide half-volley, Sharma drives, gets a thick edge, and it is taken by a leaping Dinda at short third man. Sharma is livid, but he has done his job 112/5
    15.6 Dinda keeps them in. Rayudu hasn't seen them through. Rayudu moves across the line to try to pull this over short fine leg, but the ball doesn't quite come on, and he ends up pulling it straight to deep backward square leg 93/4
