    0.5 Unadkat strikes, good length delivery which was angled in and pitches around off and shaped away with a bit of extra bounce. Fazal was walking down the track and checks his shot as he defends, goes through the outside edge to the keeper. 4/1
    4 change of pace and that one moves in touch, not like those big ones that he was getting earlier. Saxena stride forward and he has to reaches to drive that, ends up with an edge and Patel dives to his right and holds that on the jump. 15/2
    35.4 Kulkarni strikes again, that's a terrific catch by Parthiv, on a good length outside off which moves away. Shrivastava stays on the crease and tries to drive that way from his body, ends up with an edge back towards the keeper where he has to dive full length to right and hold off an another good catch. 136/5
    17.4 that's the third catch for Patel, back of a length delivery which was pitched outside off and shapes away with good bounce. Ojha stays on the crease and tries to dab it towards backward point, movement was good enough to get an edge. 57/3
    24 Vasavada gets the wicket, tossed up delivery on off, Rawat just stride forward and a gentle push towards short cover where Rayudu accepts that sitter. It looked as if he was doing some catching practice there, was not in song from the start of his innings. 73/4
    37.1 Chawla walks back, all of a sudden they lost too many wickets. Good length delivery which was pitched around off and by then Chawla already backed up towards leg and the away movement makes him to reach to it, ends up with an edge to Patel, that's the sixth for the night which is a Deodhar Trophy record for a keeper. 140/8
    35.5 Nath goes for a duck, that's second in a row, good length delivery which straightens on middle and leg. He walks across a bit and was early to flick that through on side, plays across the line and umpire raises the finger, plumb infront! 136/6
    36.4 that's the fifth catch for Patel, back of a length which angles in before pitching it on off and shapes away with good bounce. The movement gets Karn on the back foot as an half hearted push ends up in the hands of Patel. 140/7
    41.2 Vasavada gets another wicket, tossed up delivery on off and turning away, he gets down on on knee for a slog sweep, he was not to the pitch of it and a flat shot ends up in the hands of Pujara at short midwicket 161/9
    44.3 its all over, flatter and on a length down leg, that was too quicker as he comes down the track to hoick to on side. Yadav misses the line and Parthiv does the rest, he had a good time behind the stumps. West Zone enters the final. 191/10
