    4.4 walks down and he's gone, caught! trouble, trouble, that's a lot of it for KKR, GG was looking to go down the track and smack it over the in-field, again the ball seemed to have not come on too well and he only gets a top edge that spoons up gently for Yuvraj to take a straight-forward chance 29/3
    1.4 big, big appeal and it's given! it was fuller on the middle stump and swinging back into the batsman, he was looking to flick it away to the leg side, missed the bat and hits the pads, the appeal is upheld and Pune have the first blood 17/1
    3.6 bowled him, Kallis' stumps have gone for a run there! it was a yorker-length ball, and Kallis seems to have played all over it, missed it and the stumps are disturbed, a bad day for the South African legend comes to an end 25/2
    17.5 whoa, what happened there! it was dug out by Pathan and he wanted to go away for a single, the non-striker wasn't coming through, the batsman was very close to where the ball was on the pitch, the bowler was trying to get close to it, Pathan taps it away with his foot, there was a definite obstruction and the question there is whether it was deliberate or not! Third umpire is having a look at it and wow, the umpire has given it out, looked more on the side of it being deliberate than inadvertent there, but YP isn't happy, he waits for a long, long time, much like Inzy Haq would after getting bowled. 148/6
    15.5 again on his pads and that's gone, run-out! it was on the middle-stump, was looking to flick it away and gets it to short fine-leg, the fielder was standing at the edge of the circle, the throw comes in hard and flat and the batsman is way down the track, Pathan has already refused his call for a single and there goes number four 127/4
    16.2 gone, Tiwary's gone caught and they have lost their fifth now! was on a length, it was swinging this at this late stage of the innings, was looking to heave over the long-on fielder, gets it on the bottom of the bat and it's gone straight to the fielder 128/5
    not out
    19.4 outside the off stump, and he has sliced it over to deep cover, there was an easy two there but the batsman at the striker's end did not want to, he tries to get back to the non-striker's end and despite hitting the stumps with his body, Mathews seems to have uprooted the stumps with the ball in his hands. The third ump has been called to adjudicate that one and it's out! 160/7
