Fall of wickets: 1-27 (Adam Gilchrist, 3.2 ov), 2-54 (Herschelle Gibbs, 6.6 ov), 3-67 (VVS Laxman, 8.6 ov), 4-90 (Shahid Afridi, 11.5 ov), 5-92 (Venugopal Rao, 12.3 ov), 6-98 (Sanjay Bangar, 14.1 ov), 7-119 (Nuwan Zoysa, 16.1 ov), 8-154 (Doddapaneni Kalyankrishna, 19.1 ov)
16.1 to DNT Zoysa, and he strikes first ball, landing it on a full length right in the zone and Zoysa misses all ends up with a nothing shot, middle stump is uprooted. 119/7
Irfan Pathan403027.5093110
3.2 to AC Gilchrist, bowled 'em! Gilchrist was superb in the last game as Laxman was an onlooker, but he fails tonight, just swinging from his crease with zero footwork to one pitched up and swinging in, and the ball makes contact underneath his bat to send Pathan into his jig. 27/1
19.1 to D Kalyankrishna, oh well held, Marsh! Brilliant effort at backward point, diving horizontally to his right to cup a firm slash from Kalyankrishna, dancing down the track, perfectly balanced in the air ... one for the album, I'd say. 154/8
Vikram Singh403408.5064000
Piyush Chawla402837.0082100
6.6 to HH Gibbs, but thats taken, as Gibbs fails to curb his enthusiasm and slogs that out into the hands of a lurking deep midwicket sweeper, who didn't have to do much on the ropes. 54/2
8.6 to VVS Laxman, thats a big wicket, and so softly done! Chawla gets a second, flighting it up in the air and getting it to dip on Laxman, who is beaten in the flight and early into the stroke, which is chipped to Yuvraj in the covers, who pops up and takes it on the second attempt. 67/3
14.1 to SB Bangar, another one goes! Bangar skips down and tries to hit Chawla over long-on but isn't to the pitch and so doesn't middle it, so Sreesanth comes in and dives forward to hold a good catch, handing Chawla his third. 98/6
Gagandeep Singh403719.25105100
11.5 to Shahid Afridi, rush of blood sends him back inside, but thats a good catch from Yuvraj! Afridi loses his marbles, heaving at one and getting a top-edge up into the starry night, Yuvraj keeps his eyes trained on the ball in the covers and takes it, falling down onto his back, then juggling and holding onto it on the third attempt. 90/4

Nuwan Zoysa403218.00104100
10.5 to Yuvraj Singh, and thats the end of that! Yuvraj shapes to pull another short one but it sits up a tad more than expected and he makes a meal of the timing as the ball gains on him, succeeding only in lobbing the simples of return catches to Zoysa, Hyderabad know all too well how big that is. 86/3
Shahid Afridi302809.3334000
Sanjay Bangar402606.5093000
Doddapaneni Kalyankrishna3034111.3354120
6.5 to KC Sangakkara, got em! Sangakkara falls going for an expansive drive off one knee, just failing to keep the ball down and Sharma takes an easy catch at cover. 45/2
