Abdul Razzaq302117.0092100
19.6 to Mohammad Sami, on the leg stump and slower ball as Sami comes down the track and lofts it to long on to guess who? Rayudu, who takes his fourth catch of the innings. 130/9
Justin Kemp301806.00103000
Alfred Absolem1011111.0031100
4.5 to Taufeeq Umar, Heroes draw first blood as Absolem lures Umar by pitching it outside off. Umar goes for the lofted drive and does not clear Maher at deep extra cover. 34/1
Nicky Boje302006.6671110
Inder Shekar Reddy401944.75120100
9.2 to Imran Nazir, on the leg stump, Nazir lofts it to long on where Rayudu takes the catch without moving an inch. Raymond says"Good Catch.... Binny would have taken it one handed". 63/2
11.4 to Inzamam-ul-Haq, on the leg and middle and Inzamam tries to sweep it and is struck flush on the pads and is out but Inzamam says he got an edge onto it and the replays dont suggest so. Palmer who already lifted his finger is further vindicated by the replays. Good breakthrough this. 75/3
18.3 to Azhar Mahmood, full toss at the waist height as Mahmood comes down the track and blasts it to deep extra cover only to see Rayudu taking the catch. And for all those having a doubt, why it is not called a no ball, it isn't dangerous for a spinner to be bowling that ball. 118/7
18.6 to Mushtaq Ahmed, on the off stump and an arm ball, which beats Mushtaq on the run and is stumped easily. Khaleel has easily been the most impressive keeper. 119/8
Chris Harris302508.3333000
Stuart Binny30933.00120020
13.4 to Imran Farhat, on the off stump, Farhat looks to loft it onto the midwicket but misses and is stumped. Khaleel is the man. 84/4
15.2 to Naved Latif, the answer to the question of earlier ball is nothing as the stumps are bought out of the ground and sends Latif back. 96/5
15.3 to Humayun Farhat, on the middle stump, Farhat plays the ugly swipe, which he has made all his own and gets s top edge to long on. Binny is the "Kissed man" of the finals 3 wickets off 9 balls, can you beat that ?. 98/6
