1.4 Steyn takes out Paul. He hurled this one fuller and on the middle stump line. It landed around leg and middle and curved towards middle. Paul isn't too good with that line as he tends to get cramped up. And he gave a dolly of a catch to mid-on, trying to whip it to the on side. 9/1
    10.4 Game over? Gilly is gone. It was a full delivery outside off and Gilchrist went for his off drive. It was very full and he couldn't quite get his timing right. And hit it straight to extra cover 83/3
    2.6 Shaun goes. Punjab stutter. DC camp is delirious. Shaun Marsh went down the track looking for the big hit but was beaten in flight. He tried to go through with the shot but edged a simple catch to short third man. 22/2
    10.6 Caught at the deep point boundary! it was short and wide, DK reached out to cut. The ball flew towards the point boundary where Ravi Teja calmly puts his hands up to pouch it. 84/4
    15.3 He tries to slog sweep this googly but doesn't find much wood behind it. Dan Christian charges forward from deep midwicket and lunges forward to take a very good low catch 102/6
    13.3 Ojha pumps his fist. Abhishek went down the track and swung it straight to deep midwicket. Punjab's dreams are evaporating in the hills 91/5
    15.4 Stumped! Amit Mishra has bowled really well today. This one was tossed up and the batsman was lured into coming down the track. But the ball dipped rapidly, gripped the surface and spun past the waft. Kedar Devdhar removes the bails in a flash 102/7
    not out
    15.5 Hattrick for Amit! He is beyond joy. And is mobbed by his team-mates. It was the googly that bounced extra even as it broke in from outside off and Harris was cramped as he went for the cut. They had the second slip/gully for this hat-trick delivery and it flew to him. Good sharp catch. Amit hops in joy 102/8
    17.1 Clatter! The googly again. it was tossed up full outside off and Praveen goes for a slog over mid-on. The ball broke back in to hit the off stump 104/9
    18.6 Bhatt is run out. The slower one was pushed to the off side of the pitch, Anand got to it and found the stumps at the striker's end. Punjab's dreams evaporate into the hills of Mcleodganj. Good brave effort from them at the end of the tournament and they nearly sneaked through. But that's that. Some joy for Deccan. 116/10
