    0.3 lovely delivery back of a length, pitches and moves away slightly, squares up the batsmen and finds the edge behind the wicket to Gautam, who takes a comfortable catch. 0/1
    4.1 what a catch! Short of a length delivery and Jaffer turns it around but Satish at short leg takes a reflexive catch at knee level, juggled a few times, well done, wonderful stuff. Jaffer departs, a big wicket for Karnataka. 19/2
    4.4 three down, good length delivery pitches and moves away to take the outside edge through to Gautam. Rahane was prodding forward. 20/3
    25.1 129.3 km/h, fuller delivery and the off stump goes for a ride as Khanvilkar plays all around it. A wicket at the right time for Mithun and Karnataka. Mithun is delighted. 84/4

    29.3 Mithun strikes once again, right in the block-hole and it clips the toes, then knocks the off stump, Nayar walks off and he is shattered after a good stand at the wicket and Mithun is elated. 100/5
    79 short and wide outside the off stump, Samant cuts hard but picks out the fielder at backward point and Manish Pandey takes a splendid catch inches off the ground. 233/10
    31.5 fuller delivery hit in the air to the left of Vinay Kumar , who dives but cannot catch it, Oh! in the meantime the ball goes to mid-off to Joshi, who throws it to the keeper, who just sees Agarkar outside the crease and runs out Agarkar. It was actually referred to the third umpire, who pressed the red button, the umpires out in the middle think the ball is in play. Agarkar has a long chat out there but he has to go. 106/6
    49.1 Mithun strikes first ball after coming back, pitches back of a length and Powar on the back foot forces at it and gets an outside edge and Pawan at gully dives to his right and takes a special catch, well done. Powar is furious with the shot. 143/7
    56.5 short and outside the off stump, Abdulla goes for it and cuts it hard, the ball is traveling, Amit Verma at first slip, times his jump well and takes a wonderful catch. Vinay picks up his fourth wicket and that is tea on day 1. 184/8
    75.5 tossed up delivery and Kulkarni uses his feet and hits it in the air and back to Joshi, who takes the catch, appeals for the catch, Kulkarni waits, umpire Saheba is not sure, he checks with the square leg umpire and then goes for the third umpire, the red light comes on and Kulkarni has to go. 229/9

    24 too full and swinging away outside the off stump and Pawan drives in the air to mid-off and Powar takes a wonderful catch, the ball was dying and he dives to his left and takes the catch inches off the ground, excellent stuff. Karnataka dig deeper into trouble. 58/5
    3.2 Uthappa has a walk back, the crowd is stunned, short of a length delivery pitches and moves away to takes the outside edge as Uthappa is rooted to the crease, the ball carries to Jaffer at second slip, who takes the catch low down in front of him. Kulkarni squared Uthappa with a wonderful delivery. 10/1
    10.1 the nightwatchman goes, a good short delivery and Vinay fends at it and off the glove the ball lobs up to short leg and Nayar gobbles up an easy catch, good early breakthrough for Agarkar and Mumbai. 26/2
    21.5 fuller delivery outside the off stump and Ganesh pushes forward for the drive and gets the outside edge to Khanvilkar at third slip, who takes the catch low down in front of him, excellent stuff. 53/3
    22 lovely bowling this, the big wicket of Manish Pandey, pitches outside the off stump and strikes the pad, loud appeal and given by the umpire Saheba, a marginal decision. A big blow for Karnataka. 53/4
    29.5 fuller and Verma looking for the drive, spoons it in the air to mid-off and Agarkar accepts the catch gleefully. Verma waits but umpire Saheba raises the finger and he has to go. Karnataka are 6 down for 71. 71/6
    44.5 Karnataka slide further as Kulkarni bowls one on a good length and induces the leading edge out of Gautam who is looking to flick it away. Jaffer safely pockets it at second slip. We can safely assume that Mumbai are sailing toiwards a first innings lead 120/8
    37.4 a terrible mix-up, Binny pushes to the left of cover and takes off for a run, Gautham stays put at the non-strikers end, Nayar picks up the ball and quickly throws it to Samant, who gets rid of the stumps to run out Binny. A suicidal run. 95/7
    45.1 well Salvi was working on this line from the previous over. Outside the off stump and moving away a touch. Joshi moves across and hangs his bat. All he gets is an outside edge back to the keeper 120/9
    49.3 and Salvi has five! He pitches one on the off stump and gets it to move in a touch. Mithun looks like he is playing for the straight delivery and is rapped above the knee roll. Salvi is happy and Mumbai fielders converge in a huddle for a job well done 130/10

    48.5 tossed up delivery and Nayar charges down the track and hits in the air down to long on, Pandey running around jumps in the air and in a horizontal position and takes an amazing catch, superman effort, wonderful. Lifts the boys in the Karnataka team. No words to describe it. It has been referred to the third umpire to check if the catch had been taken cleanly, I thought it was brilliant and Nayar has to go as umpire Saheba gets the answer from the third umpire. 146/6
    17.4 Mithun strikes once again, picks up his fourth wicket, good short delivery on the ribs and Samant fends at it with one hand off the bat and gets the edge to Ganesh at short leg, a big wicket and Samant walks back to the pavilion. 51/5

    49.4 another wonderful delivery from back of a length and squares up Agarkar and the ball lobs up on the off side, Uthappa from short cover dives forward and takes another wonderful catch inches off the ground.

    55.5 lovely delivery pitches outside the off stump and brings the ball back in, Abdulla plays forward and the ball takes the inside edge of the bat and Gautam takes a good catch to his right. A swift knock from Abdulla comes to an end. A tentative push from him. 172/8

    83.3 well that ends the Mumbai innings. A short delivery from round the stumps and angled into the body of Salvi, who takes his body out of the way but the bat is in line, the ball takes the edge and through to Verma at first slip. Mithun ends up with 6 wickets for the innings and 9 for the match, wonderful bowling. 234/10

    1 a terrible shot on a terrible delivery, too short and too wide outside the off stump, Gautam goes after it and cuts it, gets the bottom of the bat and goes to Jaffer at second slip, who takes a comfortable catch. Agarkar strikes in his very first over. 1/1

    87.1 pitches outside the off stump and nips back in, goes through the gap between the bat and pad to uproot the off stump, oh! the game turns once again. Vinay was beaten by the pace. A peach of a delivery. 322/9
