1.3 Gayle's gone! A seven-ball duck, Punjab are on a high, good length and some width on offer and he is tempted to chase that, gets a big nick and Gilly, with the form he is in, dives full length to his left to pluck that out one-handed in front of slip 4/1
    5.6 Srivastava can't control himself, is ecstatic after dismissing Tiwary, who pulled a short one straight to midwicket 34/3
    3.6 Harris is going for a few runs but is getting the wickets, short ball on the off, Kohli tried to pull that in front of square, got a top edge and Karthik at slip timed his jump well to clasp it over his head 17/2
    12.6 domination from Punjab, 50th wicketkeeping dismissal for Gilchrist in the IPL, AB went for the slog-sweep, was the googly again, got a top edge and Gilly did the rest running in the direction of square leg 89/7
    6.6 gone! Not as full as the previous delivery, Asad, predictably, looked to launch it into McLeodganj, miscued it and found a patient David Hussey at cover 43/4
    10.4 stumped, flighted outside off and it turned away sharply, tried to drive it through the line but the turn was too much for Kaif who lost his balance as he leant forward, Gilly missed taking off the bails on the first attempt but got it right on the second 72/5
    12.2 bowled'im, flighted and was the googly, he just missed it did Karthik, tried to drive it through the off side, landed full on the off and struck off 88/6
    14.1 done in by the googly again, Chawla takes his fourth, pushed that one in quicker and van der Wath tried to close the face on that one, missed as he went across and looked to be struck in line with middle and leg, Asad Rauf had no doubts about that one 95/8
    15.3 gone, landed full and he made room, only to chip it straight to David Hussey at mid-on 103/9
    16.6 bowled'im, Punjab have thumped Bangalore, short and he moves away to pull it, misses and we know the rest 121/10
