Manpreet Gony402115.25143000
3.3 to AC Gilchrist, he's gone this time! Gilchrist tries to loft a good length ball down the ground but gets an outside edge that swirls high in the air towards third man, the under-19 player Abhinav Mukund initially mis-judges it but in the end he dives forward to take a sharp low catch, Deccan in serious trouble now. 15/2
