    10.6 captain's come up with another stunner! It was drummed into the covers after Uthappa had made room to free his arms. It was a flatter delivery as well. The problem though was he didn't place it far enough from Warner, who dives low to his right and assures himself of a spot in the highlights of the match later 81/2
    6.2 he's miscued that! Lovely, loopy delivery outside off stump enticed the batsman into a slog sweep. But unlike the last ball, he wasn't able to get to the pitch. The ball bounces a bit more than he thought and that's enough to snare the top edge. It still carries to Morgan at deep midwicket though 57/1
    13.5 he's gone! It certainly appears so. Bipul has beaten the batsman in flight - Pandey was rushing down the track, but he realises the ball has been held back. All he can do is bunt it into the off side and then he gets greedy. Wants a single, but Tendo says no. Amid the indecision, Bipul has rushed across and slung a throw to the keeper. Ojha does the rest 105/4
    11.6 Morgan's taken it this time! Nothing more than a slog from Russel, on one knee, and the slowness of the pitch, not to mention Bipul's decision not to afford the batsman any pace, means he has miscued it. Easy take for the long-on fielder 86/3
    14.6 gets his man this time! Back of a length on middle, not quite short enough for the pull. Tendo disagrees. Unfortunately for him, it stays low too. Misses the ball and is struck quite low in front of all three stumps. 111/5

    17.3 does him in on the second try! Goes for the reverse swat again, but this time Bhuvi's pulled his length back and slanted it outside leg stump. The edge goes against the batsman, for once 139/6
    17.6 the reverse sweep consumes another man. Slower, length ball on off stump, scooped up only as far as point. Henriques calls for it and takes it diving forward 145/7

    0.3 what a riposte from Umesh, the Eden Gardens raises itself to a roar. This was fuller and jags away, Warner seeks to clip it away to the leg side but does not read the movement. Umesh rattles the top of off stump 5/1
    4.5 that would be embarrassing to both batsman and bowler! Dhawan was aiming to run down the track, so Hoggy dragged the googly down, as Dhawan was hoping. Nails a pull and then looks around to see Pandey at square leg with gobbling up the catch 29/3
    0.6 Ojha gone for a duck, the off stump goes for a toss. This was fuller and curls in from outside off, Ojha is crease-bound as he attempts a feeble drive. Too quick for him. He does not get hold of it and the off stump takes a beating 6/2
    14.1 straight up, and Pandey snaps it up at extra cover (or maybe mid-off). Beautifully disguised wrong 'un against a batsman so dead set on getting his boundaries over the leg side. He doesn't get to the pitch, the ball shoots up off the top edge and the fielder is well in control of a swirler. Academic, really 81/7
    8.1 is he gone? Yep, Morgan's walking off! It was slid well wide of him, and the ball kept low as well. Manages a cut towards point. Then the indecision hits. Morgan calls, and then worries about Gambhir at point. By that time Henriques has charged down. Then comes the fumble from the fielder and Morgan thinks he can make it, but Gambhir recovers quickly and gets the throw to the right end and Tendo breaks the stumps 55/4
    11.4 runs past a straight one! He was looking for extra cover having signalled his move way too early. Chawla drags his length back, refuses to give him the turn he wants and just smiles as Uthappa pulls off an easy stumping 68/5
    11.6 goes back to a good length ball, it's another slider, helps it off the inside edge to deep midwicket. Two is on, but Bipul is quite slow to turn. That could well cost him. But wait. it appears like the keeper's gloves have kissed the bails loose before he brings the ball over to knock on the stumps. It's terrribly close. The third umpire's looking at a lot of replays, but the ball was in his gloves when his webbing tips one of the bails over. And the big red letters tell him to go home 69/6
    17.6 there's the slog, despite the ball so full and so wide of off stump. Should have looked move over cover instead of long-on. Holes out 117/8
    19.4 glum faces at the Sunrisers dig out as Praveen falls as well. It's the slower short ball outside off, gets the ramp in reply and it lobs gently to short third man 131/9
