View dismissal NV Ojha lbw b Bhatia 23 67 43 2 0 53.48
15.2 there's the wicket, Bhatia has struck, Ojha was looking to manufacture a shot there, shuffled across the stumps and looked to paddle sweep the ball, he misses and is struck in front of off stump, no doubts over whether that would hit the stumps, umpire raises the finger and Ojha is on his way, not his most fluent effort 56/1
View dismissal PA Reddy b Varun Sood 53 110 77 7 0 68.83
24.2 now Reddy has wasted his innings! It was a touch slower and well tossed up, Reddy had been curbing his attacking instincts went for an across-the-line hoick and missed the ball completely. The middle stump takes a beating 99/4
View dismissal MK Pandey b Bhatia 0 4 4 0 0 0.00
15.6 whoa Bhatia is on a roll here! Pandey has missed one and the offstump has been knocked back. After an hour of inactivity, there is finally some action. It was again a length delivery outside off and Pandey took a big forward stride to push it to the off side, but the ball jagged a touch into the batsman, went through the gap that had opened and hit the stumps. Pandey..he used to be a promising batsman once.. 56/2
View dismissal SA Roy b Bhatia 5 9 6 1 0 83.33
17.5 another one for Bhatia! Blame Anurag Bohra for this dismissal! It was again one of those length deliveries outside off and Roy, instead of going forward, chooses to stay back and guide it through to third man. It hits the inside edge and knocks the stumps down. 66/3
View dismissal AM Nayar c Kohli b Milind Kumar 91 115 73 13 1 124.65
42.5 and that's the end of Nayar, missing out on a hundred after a superb fighting innings, a soft dismissal this, a full ball is chipped towards Kohli at cover, simple catch there, end of a terrific knock 222/6
View dismissal AR Bawne lbw b Narwal 13 37 25 1 0 52.00
32.3 loud appeal and there is a wicket! It was a length delivery that jagged back sharply into the batsman, who was trying to guide it to third man. Poor decision as that hit him outside the line of off and would have probably gone over anyway 151/5

View dismissal Mohit Sharma lbw b Kumar 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 Bhuvaneshwar continues his trend of striking early. Pitches on length on middle stump, not much effort shown from Mohit Sharma and it strikes him on the pads. That was plumb. 1/1
View dismissal UBT Chand run out (Vinay Kumar) 13 45 21 1 0 61.90
9.6 Vinay Kumar to Sehwag, a run-out, Chand has to go, the ball rolled towards the off side off Sehwag's pads, Sehwag takes two-three paces and then stops, Chand has already responded, he is sprinting, has to stop and turn around, by then vinay has pounced on the ball, direct hit catches Unmukt well short 63/2
View dismissal V Kohli* c †Ojha b Kumar 5 8 9 0 0 55.55
2.3 It's a big wicket!! Bhuvaneshwar's delivery was fullish and pitched well outside off. There was some lateral movement, which Kohli didn't really account for, as he wildly swiped at the ball to induce an outside edge to the keeper 7/2
View dismissal V Sehwag c & b Saxena 59 49 38 9 1 155.26
13.2 the end of the Sehwag show, he charges out and thumps that straight back at the bowler, Iresh Saxena, who holds on to the chance, he's overjoyed and why not, the dangerman is gone, Sehwag is not happy, neither is the crowd 85/4
View dismissal Milind Kumar run out (Pandey) 22 58 36 2 0 61.11
23.5 Rajpoot to Bhatia, there is a direct hit! Bhatia tries the same thing what Milind did last ball, but the fielder from cover runs in quickly, swoops the ball and throws down the stumps at the striker's end. Milind is well short. Manish Pandey the fielder there. 122/5
View dismissal R Bhatia b Rajpoot 65 131 89 4 1 73.03
43.1 this should be game over, Rajpoot has sent Bhatia's middle stump flying, it was an offcutter that beat the bat as Bhatia tried to guide the ball towards the off side, big gap between bat and pad 224/9
View dismissal P Bisht lbw b Rajpoot 23 27 26 2 0 88.46
30.3 the finger is raised! Rajpoot strikes. Puneet Bisht was shuffling across and wanted to clip this back of length delivery to the leg side, played across the line and was hit in front of the off stump. 160/6
View dismissal S Narwal c †Ojha b Kumar 0 10 5 0 0 0.00
31.6 oh that's a smart catch by the wicketkeeper! The batsman tried to punch that length delivery to the off side and got a faint edge to the left of the keeper, who had to quickly dive to his left as the ball was dying on him. The umpire wants to check if the catch is clean or not. It went straight into the webbing from what I see. Yeah, he is gone. Another wicket for Bhuvi 162/7
View dismissal Varun Sood b Rajpoot 3 10 6 0 0 50.00
33.6 that's a beauty! Kind of yorker that Indian bowlers dream of! It was full and it swung in towards the left-hander's toes, hit the pads and takes the leg stump out. One for youtube 169/8

View dismissal P Awana b Vinay Kumar 12 19 14 1 0 85.71
47.5 length ball and that crashes into off stump, India Blue have won but they couldn't get Nehra out, they had to get everyone else out. Awana went for a big shot but he missed, great fight from the Delhi lower order 252/10
