13.1 poor shot, Yomahesh dishes it out full and wide outside off, Butt makes room to slice that over third man but he ends up placing it straight to McGrath at third man 87/3

    6.5 timber! Yomahesh pitches that on a good length on legstump and the ball holds its line, Ganguly makes room to pull but swings his bat too early, the ball clips the thigh and hits the top of legstump 47/2

    15.4 he angles it down to Dilshan at third man again, Taibu takes the risk with the second run and makes a dive for the crease fairly early, the throw lands just above the stumps and de Villiers whips off the bails, the third umpire Jayaprakash has a look and gives it out 99/4

    2.4 and he's in business again! He pitches it short and wide, delivers it from wide of the crease, Gambhir can't resist a slash over the infield without really moving his feet, Hussey leaps at backward point and takes it easily 17/2
    0.2 he strikes immediately! He fires that in on a fullish length outside off, it swings away from the right hander very late and Sehwag gets caught on the drive without moving his feet, he gets a thick outside edge to Saha, Shoaib does the aeroplane celebration and man is he happy 2/1
    4.2 That's three for the road! Shoaib bangs that in short, puts in the extra effort, de Villiers sizes up for the pull but the ball comes on really quick, he gets a thick top edge and Taibu takes the sitter at square leg 28/3

    7.3 can u people hear it as Eden goes crazy at the fall of Dhawan's wicket. Dhawan was looking to deposit a good length ball over midwicket and misses as Dinda sends the off stump for a cartwheel and sends the crowd into a frenzy and the owner of the Knight Riders is ecstatic. Why not ? 43/5
    11.1 There's a raucous din at Eden at the moment! Mishra makes room and angles it down to short third man, they take a risky run and Shukla picks it up and hurls it to Saha, Dilshan grounds his bat but he wasn't quick enough to make his ground before Saha whips off the bails 67/6
    17.2 Mishra tries to get too cheeky by walking across his stumps and dragging it from way outside off, the paddle scoop really travels off his blade but Ishant's position at short fine leg is perfect for the catch 105/8
    15.6 very untimely run-out! The short delivery catches Maharoof by surprise and he fails to control the pull, the ball trickles off his gloves and Mishra sets off, Maharoof was ball watching however as Dinda ran forward, picked it up and hits the stump, the third umpire takes a look, Shah Rukh is out of his seat again 101/7
    17.5 hits the timber and it's all over! Yomahesh walks across his stumps to paddle it fine but the ball is too straight and full, it flattens his middle stump and Shukla picks up three in this magical over 110/10
    17.3 On a hat-trick here! Sangwan stays at the crease and tries to go downtown, he picks a pitched up delivery outside off and fails to get the elevation, Hussey takes the sitter at long-on 105/9
