Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Rahul Dravid, 2.4 ov), 2-29 (Kevon Cooper, 3.6 ov), 3-62 (Sanju Samson, 8.4 ov), 4-121 (Shane Watson, 15.1 ov), 5-149 (Brad Hodge, 18.1 ov), 6-155 (Ajinkya Rahane, 19.1 ov), 7-157 (Dishant Yagnik, 19.3 ov), 8-157 (Stuart Binny, 19.4 ov)
3.6 to KK Cooper, but now he's gone! May have been a little slower because Cooper had to adjust mid-stroke. As with the previous balls, he had moved outside leg and wanted to loft this over the off side field, but this time he hits it straight to the man at extra. 29/2
2.4 to R Dravid, full and straight and gone! His stumps are in disarray and Morris has worked. Dravid was looking to play all around that ball, looking to clip it on the leg side when he should have been playing straight. He misses, the ball hits the pads and deflects onto the stumps. 14/1
15.1 to SR Watson, fullish which tempts Watson into a big blow, possibly over the leg side. But this time Watson gets a thick edge and the ball flies high in the air towards cover. Holder rushes in from the boundary, settles underneath it and pouches it safely. 121/4
8.4 to SV Samson, It was short of a length and Samson looked to swipe this down the ground, but the ball got big on him. The ball takes the top edge and balloons high into the air where Ashwin at midwicket comes around and takes a simple catch. The umpires were concerned if the ball had hit the wires of the spider cam, but all is well. 62/3
18.1 to BJ Hodge, and just like Morris he starts it with a wicket. Hodge's stumps are knocked back. Not quite the Bravo yorker, but it was full enough. Hodge looked to clear his front leg and lift it over cow corner but to no avail. 149/5
19.1 to AM Rahane, Bravo misses his yorker, but this time he won't be too troubled. Rahane, after moving toward the off side, tries to shovel it over the leg side the ball takes a thick top edge and is held safely at fine leg. 155/6
19.3 to DH Yagnik, holed out in the deep. This was short and angled down the leg side. Yagnik goes for the hook but he doesn't keep it down. There was a man in the deep at midwicket, Holder, and he makes no mistak. 157/7
19.4 to STR Binny, another one bites the dust. And its to a full toss again. It should have been carted over the boundary, but Binny doesn't get it off the middle. It went off the bottom of the bat and Jadeja comes in from long-on and collects it easily. 157/8

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Michael Hussey, 2.5 ov), 2-33 (Murali Vijay, 5.4 ov), 3-51 (S Badrinath, 8.1 ov), 4-54 (MS Dhoni, 9.2 ov), 5-61 (Dwayne Bravo, 10.4 ov), 6-70 (Ravindra Jadeja, 11.6 ov), 7-72 (Suresh Raina, 12.3 ov), 8-145 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 19.4 ov)
19.4 to R Ashwin, Another full length ball and Ashwin does what he has been doing all innings, plants his front foot outside leg and muscles over the leg side. But this time his power is not enough as Stuart Binnny comes in from long-on and holds on amid tense circumstances. 145/8
11.6 to RA Jadeja, And the extra ball helps the bowler this time. It was short but there was no room for the cut shot that he was looking to play. The edge is taken and Yagnik secures a simple catch. Super Kings are floundering here. 70/6
9.2 to MS Dhoni, oh, ho, ho... Shukla does it again! This one was on a good length and seamed away. It was at a pretty nippy pace too as Dhoni was squared up while looking to play the angle into the leg side. But he's struck on the back pad and the Umpire raises the finger. 54/4
8.1 to S Badrinath, and Tambe strikes! Badri rushes down the pitch, but the bowler hasn't used enough flight to merit that decision. He looks to flay it over the top of cover, but the ball beats him and the keeper doesn't collect it cleanly, but the ball ricochets off his pad and onto the wickets. 51/3
10.4 to DJ Bravo, another leg before! Early birthday present for Tambe as Bravo shuffles across and looks to turn this full length ball on middle into the leg side. But with the spinner skidding the ball more than spinning it, it was going to be dangerous and it was. Plumb in front. 61/5
12.3 to SK Raina, straight up in the air and another one goes down. This was outside off and Raina's front stride did not come toward the ball. In the end he only manages to get the bottom of the bat as he looked to flay it over the top of cover. The man comes in from mid-off and takes a straight forward catch. 72/7
