    1.4 well bowled Gurney, the MP is on his way. Legspinning slower ball, lands short of a length on off stump and straightens past Sanath's skip down the track and attempt to heace. He was through with the shot a second too early and off stump is disturbed. 7/1
    3.1 Gurney's slower balls are doing the job at the moment. Another slow legspinner from the left armer, Udawatte tries to work it off the pads, but it straightens to take the leading edge and balloon into the Hyderabad afternoon. The bowler calls for it, and completes a nice catch. 17/2

    7.3 top-edged and gone. Perera looks to pull a short ball from Razzaq, but he seemed a touch late on the shot, and had no room to really free the arms. Top-edge loops up to fine-leg who runs in and completes the catch. 47/3
    9.4 100 T20 wickets for the Razzler. Gunaratne is gone, flapping listlessly from his crease without moving towards the line. Outside edge nestles in Nixon's gloves. 67/4
    15.4 Milinda is gone, he doesn't get to the pitch as he tries lofting Henderson over long-on, and the leading edge goes high rather than far. Mid-off runs back and collects it. 111/5
    19.2 Shalika's enterprising effort comes to an end. Full ball outside off, he times the square drive well, but point tumbles forward to scoop it. 152/6

    2.3 Cobb's on his way, and the Tillkaratnes' affinity for the extraordinary is on display again. Faster and shorter from Janoda, it came on faster than Cobb expected and he top-edged the swipe straight down the ground. Sampath ran to his left and had it in his sights, but it popped up out of his hands and looked set to go down. And then he dived to his left and plucked the rebound one-handed. 31/1
    14.1 the race for NRR supremacy costs Razzaq his wicket. He was looking to hit everything there, and tries to slam another ball with the turn over the leg side. It was a yard sale for Razzaq, and everything had to go. But this was far too short. He ended up top-edging it and it went no where. The keeper's gloves come under it, and just as well, since the unprotected hands have been putting a few down. 128/5
    7.3 the one that holds its line does the trick. Well bowled that by Silva, he holds it back and slows it up a touch outside off. McDonald jumped out in search of the loft, but wasn't close enough to the flight to negotiate the other one. It slipped past and the keeper did the rest. 73/2
    9.1 Jefferson misses a sweep and he's on his way. Another topspinner from Silva, it hurries on after landing on off and thuds into the front pad as Jefferson misses. Harsh call, he was struck a few inches outside the line. 81/3
    12.2 Taylor's stay ends, he tries to cut a fastish ball that was whistling past him outside off. The cut glides straight into the keeper's pad. The Leics are going down here, but might still end up winning the game and ending Ruhuna's campaign too. 109/4
    14.4 Nixon's gone. He plays all around an offspinner from Gunaratne that sneaks through and upsets the castle. Off the insider edge as he miscues the sweep. Will we see Nixon on the field again? 130/6
    15.6 they have picked almost none of Silva's doosras. White jumps out of his crease like a headless chicken and heaves without conviction. Outside edge spirals up and lands in point's hands. See you later. 134/7
    18.5 Leics are contriving ways to lose this game. du Toit slogs the offbreak straight down long-on's throat. 11 to win off 7, and Ruhuna are the favourites now. Provided they bowl a spinner next over. Crucially, all their spinners have bowled out. 150/8
