    13.4 Given! KP walks across his stumps again, and is hit on the front pad trying to work the ball around it. It was headed towards leg stump, or it was just missing. Can't really say with any certainty 93/6
    2.2 edged, and gone! No feet again, from Mayank this time, and Johnson gets some bounce from a good length. Agarwal gets a thick edge on his on-the-up drive, and Sehwag catches it above his head at a wide-ish slip. 13/1
    5.2 got him! did that straighten a bit? Maybe. DK was back in his crease, and he tried to flick it from off stump towards midwicket, but he ends up getting a leading edge that loops into point's hands. 44/2
    5.6 gone! Jadhav danced down the pitch and seemed to time that flat-batted drive really well. But he doesn't keep it down, and he doesn't get any real elevation either, and Vohra takes it just above his head at mid-off 44/3
    9.3 what are you doing, Delhi? Has Tiwary sacrificed his wicket, or has KP just run past him? Tiwary bunted that straight to point, and KP just took off. Bailey is the fielder, and he only has to lob it underarm to the bowler to complete the simplest of run-outs. 67/4
    12.3 got him! Tries to sweep again from outside off, but the ball drops shorter than he must have expected and bounced to take his top edge and loop towards cover 91/5
    16.6 that's a rubbish delivery, but it's got him a wicket. It's short and wide, but Neesham isn't really in a good position to cut, and hits it uppishly, straight to backward point 110/7
    not out
    17.2 He's gone! that's a straight ball, back of a length. Shami goes back and tries to work it with an extravagant twirl of his wrists but gets no bat on it as it sneaks through and hits top of middle-and-off 111/8
    17.6 he's holed out here. Tahir skips down the track, but doesn't get to the pitch, and he checks his shot a bit. It goes high in the air and drops into Rishi's hands at long-on 115/9
    18.1 what a shot that is, but he's hit it straight to the fielder. Unadkat stays leg side of the ball, and slices it from a middle-stump line. It goes screaming off his bat, and it would have been four had it gone five yards in either direction. He's hit it straight to point, however, and Delhi are all out with 11 balls left to play. 115/10
