    0.4 gone!! early exit for Gambhir. Full again, wide outside off stump, played straight into the hands of Manish at point. He played that quite away from his body, not much of wood there, got the toe end of the bat and went flat to the fielder 4/1
    4.2 brilliant delivery! good length delivery, pitched outside off, nips back in this time, last time that missed the edge but now it went through his defence, draw the batsman on front foot, some good mind work from BK, he swung the bowl both ways and kept Chand on check, now got the prize! 17/2
    10 ohooo real mix up and that's curtains for Virat. Touch fuller on off and fends to on side, Kohil tried to steal a single, which was never there. Vinay dives to his right, picks the ball and hits the bulls eye at the strikers end. He looks quite upset. Take a bow Vinay. 46/4
    6 another one bites the dust, this time it's Viru, back of a length delivery, pitched just outside off with good amount of bounce, Sehwag tries to play across the line and was quite late at his shot, missed the line and ball went between his bat and pad and knocked out his middle stump! 26/3
    26.5 this time he got him, googly! Chawla pitches it around off stump and with good amount of pace, Kumar can't read it, thought of coming forward but went back to punched it through cover, missed the line and struck on his front pad, hitting middle and leg 120/5
    28.1 another one bites the dust and Bhatia departs, short and wide outside off, Bhatia goes back and tried to cut it over point, lost his balance while playing it and an one handed batted hit it straight to backward point, Yuvraj took that flatter one quite easily 123/6
    not out
    38.5 back of a length delivery, pitched on middle and not much of movement there, Sood was expecting some bounce on that and also it went much quicker that he expected, tried for a late cut, missed it completely and umpire raises his finger 177/7
    41.5 that makes the crowd silent, short of a length delivery, on middle and off, Nehra backs away and tried to clear the midwicket fence, managed just to skies it towards cover and Yuvraj accepts the simple one 211/8
    42.2 short of a length outside off, Awana went for a pull, edged it to the keeper, that was a bit faster than what Awana expected, early onto his shot and Ojha jumps and took it easily 212/9
    44.4 All Over! back of a length delivery, round the wicket, pitched it around leg and moving away from Suyal, he backs away and tries to hoicks it over midwicket, managed only an edge and Ojha dives to left and takes a good catch to bring the victory. 224/10
