Mohammad Sami403819.5076020
2.2 to G Vignesh, timber. Sami has his man as Vignesh is backing away even as the ball is being bowled and pays the penalty as he fails to read the length and is looking to loft it away but all he manages to get is an edge onto his off stump. The look on Law's face said it all. 19/1
Azhar Mahmood403308.2564000
5.3 to IJ Harvey, and Rana has his man as he bowls one fuller outside the off stump and Harvey is lured into the stroke as he is looking to loft it away but the bat turns in his hand and the ball is spooned up to Saqlain Musthaq at mid-off. 52/2
16.6 to SG Law, whispering death this as Rana bowls a slower delivery outside the off stump. Law, moves back and is looking to loft it away but all that he manages is a feathered outside edge back to the keeper and Rana, again gets the breakthrough. 145/5
18.4 to VC Naidu, reverse swing and Vivek is bamboozled as he looks to loft it away and is beaten. He does not even turn back to see the wreckage caused. 150/7
Shahid Nazir403218.0044000
17.4 to R Sathish, short outside the off stump. Sathish gets onto the back foot and is looking to pull it away. He plays the stroke a touch too early as he gets a top edge that flies straight into the hands of Sami, positioned at third man. 147/6
Saqlain Mushtaq402626.5040110
9.5 to RP Arnold, the wily magician is at it now. Saqlain bowls a doosra outside the off stump, Arnold picks it off the pitch and is looking to defend it but it breaches all the barriers and takes out the off-stump. Isn't Saqlain ecstatic ?. 85/3
15.4 to HK Badani, Saqlain has his man. Badani, is looking to come down the track and loft it away over long-off. He fails to read the straight delivery and is castled. Doesn't the wicket come at the right time for the Badshahs?. 135/4

Shabbir Ahmed3.5043111.2186101
18.2 to Inzamam-ul-Haq, fuller and swinging in, Inzamam is looking to glance it away but misses the line and is bowled. 162/4
Rajamani Jesuraj403418.5084100
1.2 to Imran Nazir, gone. Fuller outside the off stump, Nazir comes forward and drives it straight into the waiting hands of Harvey at extra cover and what a start for the Superstars. 15/1
Ian Harvey302207.3394000
Rajagopal Sathish403428.50103200
4.2 to Naved-ul-Hasan, fuller on the leg stump, Rana can do nothing but clip it straight into the hands of Law at midwicket and is angry at himself for playing that shot. Will this be the beginning of a collapse? I hope not. 47/2
7.4 to Imran Farhat, deceived by the slower ball. Farhat, comes forward and is looking to cut it away but gets a top edge that flies straight to Arnold at point. Is this the break that the Superstars were looking for? Well lets wait and watch. 75/3
