19.6 Vijay makes room and smashes the ball towards long on where Warner fields and fires the throw back quickly, he just misses at the bowler's end and Yadav lets the ball go through to the keeper, Ojha collects and breaks the stumps to run out Vijay 222/5
    8.1 edged and gone, taken by the keeper! Yes, they can get a wicket, it is Aaron, who is brought back, down the track goes Hussey, wants to drive it, gets the outside edge of bat and Ojha takes a simple one 68/1
    13.4 that is a good catch! Raina smashed the ball flat and straight to Negi, who stayed well balanced as he caught the ball with both hands to his right. It was hit hard 137/2
    16.3 caught at deep midwicket! Negi comes running in from the boundary and bends to catch the ball at shin-height while on the move. Good effort. Dhoni had pulled the length ball but didn't time it well enough 173/3
    17.1 that is a ripper of a catch! Albie swung hard at a good length ball angling across him from over the wicket, so hard. He got a thick outside edge that was flying to the third man boundary before Ojha dived to his left and stuck out his glove to catch it at full stretch. He had so little reaction time 183/4

    14.4 Mahela's been bowled after failing to connect with the reverse pull. He got into position early enough and swung hard, trying to pull the ball behind point. He missed and the straighter one clipped the top of middle and leg 127/6
    2.2 outside the off stump, pitched up and drilled to mid-off, Vijay, who else is the fielder and he moves to his right and holds on to the ball coming in at bullet-like pace! 17/1
    3.4 short ball and caught! It was outside the off stump and Sehwag wanted to pull it away, gets it high on the bat and Hussey rushes away to his right from mid-on to take a good catch, two down and in big trouble 22/2
    8.2 tries to slog it over mid-on and is caught! Outside the off stump and Ross Taylor tries to heave it over mid-wicket but is only able to get it as far as the long-on fielder, where Raina takes a good catch, it was hit hard alright 74/3
    11.4 Bravo's busting a few smooth moves after catching Russell at long-on! Russell tried to slog at Ashwin's flighted ball with a flat bat, unlike Mahela who got to the pitch of the ball. He got a top edge that went straight up, Bravo ran forward and to his left to catch it 106/4
    13.2 caught, right on the edge of the long-on boundary. It was a full toss and Ojha did not make perfect contact. Vijay judged the catch perfectly, though, and then he tries to dance like Bravo. He can't quite pull it off. Some things are best left to the West Indians. Maybe I was mistaken, looks like he was hobbling with some cramp after jumping back to catch the ball. 117/5
    14.5 cut off the back foot towards point and there may be a run out at the bowler's end! The fielder picked up and threw to Ashwin, who collected the ball with his fingertips on the half-volley and broke the stumps. Rao's effort to make his ground was not desperate, just a lame stretch, and so he has to go 127/7
    not out
    15.5 he's so far out of his crease that Dhoni could have drunk a glass of water and then stumped young Sunny. He charged down the pitch and swung with all he had, but did not connect against the left-arm spin 135/8
    16.3 Umesh drives on the front foot with a gap between bat and pad, Ashwin pitches outside off stump and spins the offbreak through that gap 136/9
    16.5 Daredevils are all out! Dhoni runs towards the leg side to collect the ball after the batsman had stepped out of his crease and dabbed. He whipped around and hit the stumps at the striker's end direct, catching the batsman just short. The Super Kings have stormed into the finals. 136/10
