View dismissal MJ Lumb c Harris b Singh 15 10 2 1 150.00
2.1 And as it happens in cricket, its Harris who takes the catch. A length delivery outside leg stump was slogged towards deep midwicket. The ball dips right near the boundary and who else but Harris should settle under it 16/1
View dismissal NV Ojha c Harris b Singh 1 5 0 0 20.00
2.3 RP and Harris combo at it again. It was pushed well outside off stump, Ojha plays a weak slash. And the ball gently lobs to cover where Harris - oh he is everywhere isn't he - takes it 17/2

2.3 around 124 kmph short delivery and Laxman again goes for the pull but drags it straight to deep square-leg fielder. Hmm ... Cry of joy from the debutant. 26/1
View dismissal AC Gilchrist*† c Lumb b Dole 34 17 3 3 200.00
4.5 Gilly out on dole! It was short in length and Gilly goes for the pull shot but mistimes it completely and has been caught in front of square-leg. Entertainment ends. 47/2
View dismissal RG Sharma c Raut b Trivedi 73 44 8 2 165.90
19.5 OMG! what a win for Warney's boys. What a piece of choke from Deccan. Sid Trivedi slips in a slower one outside off and Rohit goes for the big lofted hit over extra cover and is beaten by the lack of pace. He ends up slicing it to deep cover fielder. That Trivedi bowls mostly slower ones is known. Rohit should have been ready for it but the pressure has induced a fatal mistake from him. 157/10
View dismissal A Symonds c Fazal b Trivedi 15 20 2 0 75.00
10.1 Done in by the slow bouncer. Symonds, who has looked edgy right from the start, is gone. He again moved outside off and went for an ugly flat-batted swipe and top edges it to extra cover 86/3

13.5 Done in by the slider. It slid away outside off stump, Aniruddh tried to punch it to the off side and edges it .. good catch by Naman Ojha ... it was thick edge but he covered it well. Warne has struck. Enter Dwayne Smith 112/4

15.3 "C'monn," screams Warney! after taking out Smith. It was a flighted leg break on the middle and leg, Smith top edges the sweep shot straight to deep backward square-leg. Warne roars! 120/5

17.1 Warne meanwhile threatens to do it all alone for his team. Flighted loopy slower leg break around off and middle, Azhar stretches forward and drives straight to extra cover! Warne pumps his fists as he roars! Rohit stands alone there. 137/6
View dismissal RJ Harris b Warne 1 2 0 0 50.00
17.4 Shane Warne is doing all the damage here. What Harris was doing, we would never know. He came down the wicket and exposed his stumps. Warne rips across a flighted legbreak that lands outside leg and turns towards middle. Harris has a lame poke at it and misses it completely.. Done in the flight and then by the turn! Clatter! Warne has struck. Again. Whaddaplayaaaa 139/7

19.4 Trivedi to Sharma, Choke choke choke! What drama! Harmeet is run out This game is on a knife edge and nerves jangling out there. ROhit swatted a low dipping full toss to square-leg and ran. Wide throw at the non-striker's end ... Rohit rushes for the second run ... Harmeet isn't ready! Surely you got to run kid. Rohit screams at Harmeet to get across and sacrifice his wicket. And Harmeet just about stirs and runs .. Did he cross? Was Rohit short? The third umpire reckons Harmeet has just about crossed Rohit. Harmeet out and Rohit is still out there. 157/9
