0.4 Narwal is absolutely delighted. He is hopping around in joy! GIlchrist went for the big hit over mid-on but miscued it to cover! Huge wicket 2/1
    4.4 around 146 kmph, banged in short outside off, Laxman goes for another big hit and miscues the attempted pull to mid-on. 40/2
    6.4 Gibbs knows this sinking feeling of being fooled by Warney! Deja-vu all over again. Lovely loopy flighted delivery to get his man stumped. It went above the eye line, Gibbs stretched forward to off drive, his back foot came outside the crease but here is where the fun begins. The ball dips rapidly on Gibbs and also turns away from the bat. The keeper takes the bails off ..with the back foot on the line. it was refereed upstairs .. and the verdict is OUT! 58/3
    8.1 Symonds is run out What a mess. Rohit had on driven the low full toss to right of long-on.. Jhunjhunwala's throw comes in and Symonds is not even in the frame. What a bad piece of judgement. Symonds turned blindly for the second run and then he suddenly stopped .. and that put him in further trouble 71/4
    19.4 Finally, some one takes Rohit's catch! It was the bouncer outside off, Rohit top edges it towards short third-man region and Lumb runs back from backward point to take it. Very valuable innings from Rohit, though. It has given Deccan a total they can try to defend. Hope floats. 147/9
    12.3 The stumps are in disarray. Really full and it swings back in very late, almost at the blockhole, and squeezes through the defenses to crash into the stumps. Clatterrrrrrrrr 99/5
    13.3 Venugopal Rao is run out Direct hit from Abhishek Jhunjhunwala. It was a mistimed cut shot .. Abhsihek rushed to his right from backward point, picked up the ball, took aim and fired down the stumps at the non-striker's end. Deccan Chargers are in right royal mess here. 103/6
    17.6 Vaas is run out now, though. It was pushed towards cover and Vaas goes for the single but Dogra fires a direct hit at the non-striker's end. Gone! 128/7
    18.5 holes out to long-on ... It was the slower one and as you would expect at this stage, Rahul Sharma was going to go after every thing but doesn't connect well.. 138/8
