0.6 to V Sehwag, caught! Sehwag goes! The length was short and the line was wide outside off, Sehwag does what he always does to such deliveries, he slashes hard but the ball flies fast and flat towards third man where RP takes a comfortable catch, he didn't get the elevation he wanted. 7/1

Pragyan Ojha201929.5052110
15.1 to G Gambhir, stumped! Gambhir steps out of his crease and maybe a bit too early for Ojha fires the ball down leg side, Gambhir can't reach the ball and he lets it go through to Gilchrist who whips off the bails with Gambhir well short. 140/2
17.4 to MF Maharoof, caught! Sharma takes it this time, Maharoof tries to clear the straight boundary once again, this time the ball was too far away from him and he slices it high in the air and Sharma takes a simple catch at point, Sharma's earlier drop has cost Deccan 18 runs. 166/3

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Glenn McGrath4042210.50103300
2.1 to AC Gilchrist, caught! and it's an exceptional catch! Gilchrist moved forward to a good length ball and smashed it, absolutely smashed it, towards mid-off, the ball flew flat and low towards Dilshan who moved forward and dived to take a low catch, fantastic effort and the Delhi Daredevils mob him. 21/1
18.2 to Y Venugopal Rao, caught! Rao's gone and have Deccan's hopes gone with him? McGrath bowled a fuller length and angled it into the right-hander, Rao got under it and lofted the ball high in the air, it's gone miles in the air but doesn't have enough distance to clear the boudnary, Shoaib Malik settles under the catch at long on and takes it comfortably. 171/6
Mohammad Asif4051012.7537120
Farveez Maharoof403929.7562300
12.4 to RG Sharma, bowled him! That is that for Sharma, he moves across his stumps, exposing all three to Maharoof , and tries to play the paddle sweep past short fine leg, the length is good and once Sharma misses the ball crashes into middle stump, he's been in excellent form but that shot was fraught with risk and Sharma paid for it. 114/4
17.3 to SB Styris, caught! Nothing gets past de Villiers! Styris backs away to make room and lofts a short of a length ball off the front foot, he's hit it high in the air towards long-on, de Villiers runs in at pace and times his slide perfectly and holds on to a well-judged catch. 154/5
Amit Mishra401754.25111000
6.1 to Shahid Afridi, caught! What a strike off his first ball! Afridi backs away to make room and tries to smash a flat ball over the off side, he loses grip of the bat handle and slices the ball in the air towards point, de Villiers runs backwards and takes a fine catch over his shoulder, Afridi was looking to hit straight down the ground but sliced it. 71/2
8.2 to HH Gibbs, he's bowled him! Gibbs charges down the track and tries to smash Mishra over cover, the ball beats Gibbs in the flight and it is the googly which spins in to the right-hander and uproots middle stump after Gibbs fails to connect with his wild swing. 75/3
19.1 to DB Ravi Teja, he's cleared the boundary! No he hasn't, Malik's taken the catch at long off! Mishra bowled the flatter and faster ball outside off stump, Teja made room and hit it with a flat bat towards long off where Malik moved to his left and held on to a hard catch. 180/7
19.2 to PP Ojha, caught again! Mishra's got his fourth, Ojha charges down the pitch and tries to heave down the ground, Mishra slips in the goodly and Ojha slices the ball high in the air towards cover where Dilshan takes a simple catch. 180/8
19.3 to RP Singh, he's got the hat-trick! RP charges down the track and swings wildly, Mishra bowls the flatter, faster and straighter ball, RP misses and Karthik breaks the stumps with the batsman well short, Mishra loves sit, he's a hero , the Kotla cheers itself hoarse. 180/9
