3.3 Trinidad are not going away that easily. Suman sees a length ball, wants to deposit it over wide long-on, gets a leading edge. Sherwin Ganga turns around, runs back, takes this over his shoulder. A possibly tough catch made to look easy 13/2
    2.3 the slider... teams really ought to watch Badree's clips. He doesn't turn the ball. Blizzard goes for the big slog sweep, plays for the turn, gets a thick edge, taken easily at short third man 11/1
    19.5 And Rayudu has run himself out. This is full on the pads, driven to long-on, wants the second and the strike, Simmons sees Rayudu was slow to start off with, and he rockets this throw to the keeper. Run out by a fair distance. Has Simmons made up for his own stupid run-out earlier in the game? 97/9
    3.6 Are we onto something? Franklin's feet are cemented as he pokes at another wide delivery. Gets a thick edge and Badree at first slip completes a sharp overhead catch 14/3
    5.1 Rampaul is on absolute fire here. Sneaks in a yorker on off, Symonds plays it on. Rampaul goes on a celebratory run. Bring on Pollard I say 16/4
    8.3 Narine has got the big fish. A freak dismissal. The quick offbreak, Pollard looks to pull, seems to me he has got a bottom edge into the pad, and then onto the stumps. T&T are ecstatic not just because it is the big wicket of Pollard but also because he is a Trinidadian who has outgrown them 33/5
    15.4 hit straight to midwicket. T&T are still in this one. This is a flighted offbreak on the pads, dips too, and he plays slightly in front of his body. Thus uppishly. Sitter for midwicket. The 12th man had rushed in for a message before this ball. Wonder what the message was 65/6
    17.1 starts with a yoker, and Harbhajan is slow to turn for the second. This is gone softly towards deep midwicket, and there is no man inside the circle on the leg side. Harbhajan slow to come for the second, the one-handed pick-up and throw is superb, flat, by the stumps, and even the dive can't save the Mumbai Indians captain 75/7
    19.4 Another twist. Rayudu tries the big shot again. Hits it back to Ganga, Malinga is backing up, and Ganga runs him out. What a game, all three results likely 96/8
