1.5 regardless of how cliched it gets, but 'catches win matches'. Tanmay chases a full, wide delivery and gets an outside edge. Gautam has to leap to his left and take the catch. He does that and ensures that he holds on. Target gets even more tougher for India blue 10/1
    15.3 beats him with the turn. Vijay is playing for one with the angle and is surprised by one with turn. The ball hits the top of off and that's a crucial breakthrough. It shows in Abdulla's reactions 97/2
    23.2 and is it the match for India Green? A fuller ball on the off stump. Tiwary comes down the track and lofts it straight into the waiting hands of Jaggi at long-off 145/3
    31.2 on the off stump. Karthik moves across and looks to heave it on the leg side. He gets struck on the thigh as he goes down on the right knee. It would have taken out the off stump and Karthik has to trudge back to the pavilion 207/4
    32.3 the length and the lack of pace is the undoing of Pandey as he is looking for a faster ball. Harbhajan bowls it at a measly 75kmph and throws Pandey off balance. NEvertheless he goes for the lofted shot and ends up lofting it to Uthappa at long-on 217/5
    37.3 Pathan looks to loft it away and does not time it as he ends up lofting it in the air. Kaif runs across a few yards from mid-on to take the catch 241/7
    33.2 gets the ball to come in sharply. Mishra does himself no favours by trying to rush down the track. The pace on the ball surprises him as he looks to steer it away. He misses and Fallah hits the stumps 218/6
    41.4 short ball outside the off stump. Sangwan looks to pullit and gets a top edge to cover where Kaif takes the catch. That's the match for India Green as Badrinath won't be able to bat 269/9
    40.3 pitched on the middle stump and loud appeal, it was plumb in front and in the process, India Blues lose their 8th wicket 262/8
