View dismissal S Vidyut c Dhawan b Sangwan 40 23 6 1 173.91
6.1 Bangs this one short and Vidyut goes for the pull but the bat-handle rotates a touch in his hands and he couldn't find the proper timing. Caught at deep midwicket 62/1
View dismissal SP Fleming c de Villiers b Mohammad Asif 44 28 7 0 157.14
9.3 Caught at short covers. Full pitched, outside off stump, driven hard and low where AB pouches it. Good brisk innings but he should have carried on. An elegant innings by Mr Elegance himself 97/2
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c de Villiers b Mahesh 33 33 3 0 100.00
18.1 What a stunning catch from AB. Dhoni had drilled a fullish delivery towards long-on and it was dipping rapidly on AB who was rushing forward. He dived forward to get his palms under the ball. Allan Border would understand Dhoni's feelings. He was out to a similar catch by Jadeja in the 1992 World Cup. 166/5
View dismissal SK Raina c Tiwary b Sangwan 1 2 0 0 50.00

14.1 from McGrath, on the McGrath length, outside off stump, mistimes a pull past McGrath and sets for a run but Sehwag comes across from midwicket and has a direct hit. Big blow for the Kings but what a throw from Viru 138/4
