19.6 to AS Yadav, Yadav sees the extra bounce and width and tries to slash over the keeper, Akmal leaps up and hangs onto it. 214/5
Yusuf Pathan2020210.0061200
2.2 to AC Gilchrist, beats him in flight, Pathan tosses it up ever so slowly, that's his stock delivery, it lands on a good length and Gilchrist comes forward for the loft but is beaten all ends up, Kamran Akmal does the rest. 22/1
2.6 to Shahid Afridi, that's two for the over! Pathan flights it slow on middle stump, Afridi tries to go downtown and mishits this one, Jadeja takes the skier at mid-on. 32/2

Shane Warne4047211.7533310
8.3 to VVS Laxman, And Shane Warne has done it.. no foot work from Laxman, stays at the crease and drives away from his body and he gives the simplest of return catches. 75/3
17.6 to RG Sharma, Rohit shapes to cart this over the on side but is foxed by the late turn, he gets a thick leading edge to Salunkhe at extra cover. 186/4

Chaminda Vaas4042110.5085200
2.1 to Kamran Akmal, Got him, Akmal's powerful slice finds Sanjay Bangar at backward point, who takes a good catch. 14/1
RP Singh4044111.00104311
18.2 to RA Jadeja, the middle stump is out! RP fires in a yorker on the base of middle stump, Jadeja makes room to dig it out but is beaten for pace, the middle stump goes back by a yard or two. 195/6
Pragyan Ojha2023011.5033100
Doddapaneni Kalyankrishna3030110.0042200
9.3 to YK Pathan, and a huge sigh of relief for Deccan as Pathan goes! It was a rank half tracker outside off, Pathan stays at the crease, reaches out and plays an ugly flat-batted swipe straight to Symonds at long-on. 112/2
Shahid Afridi402837.0092110
11.6 to SR Watson, through the gate! Afridi bowls the quicker one and gets it to angle into watson, he goes for the slog sweep but misses it completely and the ball crashes onto the stumps. 126/3
17.1 to M Kaif, could this be a turning point here? Afridi pitches that on a good length and Kaif tries to slam that over long-on, he mishits it and Symonds takes the offering easily at long-on. 186/4
17.2 to GC Smith, what have we here?? Afridi gets away with a low full toss and Smith goes for a rather tired heave, he fails to get the elevation and Kalyanakrishna takes it easily at deep midwicket. 187/5
