    0.1 what a start! Albie strikes, full ball, Gilchrist looks to whack it towards midwicket, misses the ball and is struck low on his back leg, the umpire didn't have to think too hard about that one 0/1
    1.2 Timber! Taygi bowls Gibbs, full ball on middle and legs, Gibbs tries to whip it away to midwicket, misses, and the ball hits his pada and ricochets onto the stumps, Deccan in big trouble here 1/2
    2.2 and another wicket gone, Deccan in disarray, Laxman adds to ducks on the scorecard by chipping a legstump delivery to midwicket, elegant shot but played in the air and straight to the fielder 1/3
    8.2 Jakati breaks the partnership, Rohit holes out to midwicket, the batsman was trying to repeat the previous stroke but got it too square 73/4
    8.6 Smith is gone lbw, hit in front of middle as he tries to sweep, Jakati has taken two big wickets here, that ends an absolute gem from Smith 75/5
    13.6 Deccan are doing a house-of-cards impersonation here, another wicket gone, virtually an action replay of the previous ball, Suman gets a bit of an edge though and it sails high before Vijay takes another catch 99/9
    10.4 Jakati gets one more, and this match should be in the bag for Chennai, Venugopal dances down the track to get to the pitch of a legstump ball, he smacks it over to long-on only to find Murali waiting to take the catch 82/6
    12.4 arm ball does the trick for Jakati, Harris goes for a wild heave, he missed and offstump is rocked back, another four wicket haul for Jakati, what is it with the IPL and little-known Goa players? 96/7
    13.5 Deccan are falling apart here, simple wicket for Murali, overpitched on middle and leg, RP swipes it straight down the throat of M Vijay at midwicket 99/8
    not out
    14.4 and it's all over, an absolutely action-paced innings comes to an end, Ojha swipes it straight to man-of-the-moment Jakati at midwicket to bring the curtain down 100/10
