    2.4 timbeeerrrrrr! Rahane slogs across the line, and only gets an inside edge for his trouble. The ball then ricochets onto off stump, which them topples the middle stump as well. Love these chain reactions 19/1
    4.3 didn't even have to move! Surya Yadav was on the square leg boundary, had already made a fine save earlier, and now takes a dolly of a catch. It was flighted on off stump, Khawaja felt he could take on the long boundary because he was hitting with the turn. Probably would have been a six at the Chinnaswamy, but here, on your way. 26/2
    10.3 does him in! Gorgeous legspin bowling. Bailey looks to play to leg again, not learning from the previous instance, and now he doesn't even make any contact. Worse still, he had lunged down the track and is left stranded once the ball rips past his outside edge. Uthappa does the rest. 74/4
    9.4 umpire Oxenford nods and Tiwary has to go. He went searching for the ball, which was shortish and angled across him. The open face of the bat just about caught up with the ball and the outside edge carried comfortably to the keeper 67/3
    13.5 confusion, chaos, wicket! Dhoni did not read the spin on the ball - in that there was no spin - he reaches across to pat the ball towards point and runs right away. His partner Irfan took off at first, and then just froze. He didn't say no. He just stopped. By the time Dhoni realised, he was halfway down. The Supergiants captain jumps and yells in frustration, knowing he was about to be dismissed, but then Irfan takes a few steps down, crosses Dhoni and sacrifices his wicket 87/5

    16.2 a smirk adorns the spinner's face. It screams, 'hahaha.' Chawla loops the ball outside off, and it's the googly, so if the batsman slugs into the leg side, thinking it was a legspinner, chances are he may get a top edge. And that's exactly what happens. It carries all the way to Pandey at long-off, and he had to take a couple of steps back and was nearly treading on the boundary when he took it. Key word, nearly. 102/6

    0.1 loads and loads of turn for the second ball! The ump chimes in that it is a wide, but Pune don't care. Ashwin tossed this one up and it drifted in at the batsman. That is why Uthappa came forward, looking to nudge through midwicket. But the ball rips right across his pads, and Dhoni completes a sharp stumping 5/1
    0.3 another one! Gambhir is furious! But I think he was plumb! He was caught in the crease, unsure which way the ball would turn. If that was the case, Ashwin has done very well. Gambhir is an excellent player of spin. He inched forward, waited until the ball pitched to read the direction it took. But by that time, it skidded onto him, hits on middle and leg and umpire Oxenford sends him on his way 8/2
