    9.1 he appealed for it all alone, and got the umpire to raise his finger. The dangerous Simmons is gone! This one was much slower around the off stump, Simmons got into position early to paddle it fine and took it on the pad for a leg bye. Ankit appealed long and hard and the umpire took his time to raise the finger but did it eventually. Simmons took his eyes off the ball and got a big inside edge which the umpire didn't spot 73/2
    4.5 that's a great reflex catch from Kulkarni, he's ecstatic after grabbing it with both hands! Parthiv slapped the ball from outside off straight back to the bowler who had to go low and catch it between his legs 43/1
    10.4 smart catch from Binny! Unmukt has been bounced out. This was the reason Southee had been brought back, and he has provided it with a short ball that rose above the batsman's chest. The batsman didn't help himself by trying to drag the ball from outside off. Steepler heads towards mid-on, Binny tracks it well and takes it with the reverse cup 84/3
    14.5 that's a spectacular one-handed catch at short fine leg! Rohit went all across his stumps to expose them, got a full delivery outside off and tried to scoop it over short fine leg. But Ankit Sharma took a few steps back and stuck his left hand out over his head to grab it and let out a scream after that 120/4

    19.4 Rajasthan have a consolatory wicket, that of Pollard! It was Theron's slower ball outside off, Pollard was eying the leg side again but only managed a top edge that went high towards Samson who caught it easily 181/5

    3.1 gets a wicket first ball, a scratchy-looking Rahane is gone! He came down the track and made room, swished at it from around off stump and the ball went very high on the off side. Cover and cover point both ran back from their positions and Rayudu took it successfully. Wasn't an easy catch 30/1
    8.1 86.5kmh, Watson was struggling against Suchith a little bit and he's bowled! He went back in the crease an exposed his stumps, wanted to cut the ball from off stump but it hurried on to him and knocked the off stump over 71/2
    17.4 he's holed out to long-off, the crowd is ecstatic! It was full and outside off, from back in the crease Samson lofted it straight down to long off where Suchith didn't have to move much for this catch 161/4
    14.6 the pressure got to Smith, he's given a catch to third man! It was short and wide outside off, Smith threw his bat at it and got a top edge high towards third man. Harbhajan got under it nicely. Mitch pumps both his fists several times! 127/3
    17.5 Parthiv appeals for caught behind, Mitch only turns around and asks a question and the finger goes up! Two in two! Back of length it is outside off, Nair swishes and misses. Maybe not, he got an outside edge 161/5

    18.1 yes he tries a yorker and he gets a wicket! It wasn't 100% accurate but made Hooda lose his balance a bit, Hooda flicked it high in the air on leg, Pollard ran to his right, Chand to his left and took it comfortably 162/6
    19.4 another full toss, in the air again and he's caught at long-on. This was definitely over the waist, and is called no-ball. Pollard doesn't realise that and throws the ball late, which makes Southee comes back for the second. But his throw is accurate and Vinay takes the bails off casually, catching Southee's bat short despite the dive. A no ball, a run, a run out 177/7
