Sohail Tanvir403338.25114111
17.4 to MS Dhoni, fuller outside the off stump and slower in pace too as Dhoni chips it to long off , where Kaif is lurking and he does not drop these. 182/4
19.5 to JA Morkel, fuller on the off stump, Albie looks to swing it on the off side and gets an inside edge to short fine leg, where Jadeja standing in as a substitute takes the catch. 201/6
19.6 to A Mukund, fuller in length on the off stump as Abhinav has a swing and misses and it seals the win for Rajasthan as the off stump is sent on a cartwheel. 201/7
Yusuf Pathan3031010.3363200
Munaf Patel4055113.7535301
18.4 to S Badrinath, full toss on the middle stump, Badrinath gets behind it and lofts it to cow corner where Taruvar Kohli running around takes the catch and earns the applause from his captain. 188/5
Pankaj Singh403007.5093110
Shane Warne403528.7582210
8.3 to SK Raina, King Warne does it again as induces Raina to play a false stroke and the ball lobs up to deep midwicket, where Kaif running in takes the catch. 84/2
14.6 to PA Patel, Warne does it again as he slips in a faster delivery. Parthiv who is down the track is foxed and Akmal does the rest. 157/3
