View dismissal M Vohra c †Gautam b More 51 103 50 8 1 102.00
20.6 has Ronit struck here? seems to have, this was just outside off, Vohra's cameo is over as he nicks one through to the keeper, there wasn't much movement there, Vohra was looking to drive on the up but only feathers it through, the umpires confer and then ask for the third umpire to confirm the ball carried through to the keeper, it has and Karnataka have a much-needed breakthrough, Ronit gets the wicket two balls after I suggest he needs to be taken off 85/1
View dismissal Jiwanjot Singh b Gopal 74 177 121 12 0 61.15
37.5 bowled him! Jiwanjot looks to cut though the ball isn't too far from off stump even after it turns away a touch, it wasn't short either, making it a difficult delivery to cut, a thick inside edge has the ball crashing into the stumps, Shreyas enjoyed that wicket, Jiwanjot looks shellshocked 166/3
View dismissal T Kohli c Rahul b Gopal 25 44 41 5 0 60.97
31.5 Gopal strikes, more accurately Kohli has given it away, nothing dangerous about that delivery from Shreyas, Kohli drives firmly and uppishly, straight to short cover where Rahul takes a sharp catch, Karnataka have their second wicket, Kohli admonishes himself as he walks off 138/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Gopal b Amit Verma 42 94 56 4 2 75.00
51.5 Yuvraj has giving it away, like several Punjab batsmen before him, a full toss that Yuvraj could have put away anywhere, he picks out deep midwicket, he trudges off a disappointed man 223/4
View dismissal Mandeep Singh lbw b Vinay Kumar 17 76 51 2 0 33.33
54.3 Vinay strikes! that was plumb lbw, Vinay knew it even as he went up in appeal, Mandeep takes a big stride across as he looks to play a length ball on middle stump, he misses and is caught in front 227/5
View dismissal Gurkeerat Singh c †Gautam b Vinay Kumar 8 22 17 1 0 47.05
56.6 third wicket in two overs for Vinay, Karnataka right on top now, short of length ball just outside off, not much footwork as he looks to work that through the off, edges it through to the keeper, Vinay is jubilant 232/7
View dismissal G Khera c Pandey b Vinay Kumar 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
54.5 two in three balls for Vinay, the captain making a big impact on the game here, this does not look like a ball to be overly proud of, but the field was set for this, and the reactions from the fielder suggests that this was a plan, nearly a half-volley on the pads, clipped to short midwicket, who coolly flicks the ball to the ground almost immediately after taking it, Punjab losing their way in a hurry 227/6
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh* c Rahul b Vinay Kumar 7 20 15 1 0 46.66
60.1 Vinay Kumar gets his fourth, captain takes out captain, this was outside off and Harbhajan guides it to gullyu, Punjab are eight down and have spectacularly lost their way this session 239/8
Sandeep Sharma not out 5 28 20 0 0 25.00
View dismissal MS Gony c More b Gopal 5 4 7 0 0 71.42
61.4 Gony looks for a big hit, a proper tailender's shot, edges it and it swirls towards point whre Ronit More does well to snap it up, Punjab are 244 for 9 244/9
View dismissal Jaskaran Singh c & b Vinay Kumar 20 11 11 2 1 181.81
64.5 Punjab are allout, Vinay gets a five-for, this was pitched up and is pushed back towards the bowler, easy caught-and-bowled chance, super effort today from Vinay after having been forced off the field early on, Punjab have imploded from 223 for 3 270/10

View dismissal RV Uthappa lbw b Harbhajan Singh 47 199 109 4 1 43.11
37.1 Harbhajan strikes! his mood has improved now after the umpire upholds an lbw appeal, Uthappa has to go, can't do much with the reprieve he had off Harbhajan in the previous over, this was a length ball that hit him in line with off stump, maybe just outside off, was going on to hit middle and leg, height wasn't an issue 94/3

1.3 the wickets continue to tumble, the ball curls away outside off, pitches it back of a length, Rahul looks to play off the front foot first, then goes back, an outside edge and the ball is snapped up by the keeper, the early breakthrough Punjab wanted, terrific delivery from Gony, backing up the short one 6/1

52.5 gone! just as the teams seemed to easing towards lunch, Sandeep gets the big wicket, Pandey it is, Sandeep gets the ball to move away late, a thin edge through to the keeper, that makes it a more even session, Pandey played well but needed to go on to a bigger score 158/4
