    1.3 and that's the first wicket of IPL 2015. It's onto Finch quicker than he expected. He was in an uncomfortable half-forward position, no position from which to pull - it wasn't short enough for that either - and he top-edged it high in the air, simple catch for the man at deep square leg 8/1
    4.6 down the track now, Tare doesn't reach the pitch, and he picks out that man Umesh again. Shakib tossed it up slower and wider, and Tare had to reach out in front of his body to hit that, ended up hitting it straight down long-off's throat 37/2
    5.2 Gambhir had two slips in place, and Rayudu has steered this one straight into first slip's hands. Back of a length outside off, left the batsman off the pitch. Simply poked at it with an open face, a nothing shot, and it flew off the outside half of the bat and into Yusuf's palms at a comfortable chest height 37/3
