Pradeep Sangwan402917.25114030
5.6 to A Chopra, very soft dismissal, lands on a good length on the offstump and Chopra shapes to loft through the line, the elevation is missing and he ends up scooping it straight to Maharoof at mid-off. 35/1
Yo Mahesh403428.5083131
6.5 to SC Ganguly, timber! Yomahesh pitches that on a good length on legstump and the ball holds its line, Ganguly makes room to pull but swings his bat too early, the ball clips the thigh and hits the top of legstump. 47/2
13.1 to Salman Butt, poor shot, Yomahesh dishes it out full and wide outside off, Butt makes room to slice that over third man but he ends up placing it straight to McGrath at third man. 87/3
Farveez Maharoof402526.2570110
17.6 to LR Shukla, lovely catch at the deep! Shukla gets on his knee and tries to slog it over midwicket just like Hussey did two balls earlier, the elevation was missing and Gambhir runs across from deep square leg and catches it after diving forward. 119/5
19.1 to DJ Hussey, pitches it up on middle and off, Hussey makes room for the loft but doesn't quite get under it, he ends up spooning it down Tiwary's throat just over midwicket. 129/6

Shoaib Akhtar301143.66121010
0.2 to V Sehwag, he strikes immediately! He fires that in on a fullish length outside off, it swings away from the right hander very late and Sehwag gets caught on the drive without moving his feet, he gets a thick outside edge to Saha, Shoaib does the aeroplane celebration and man is he happy. 2/1
2.4 to G Gambhir, and he's in business again! He pitches it short and wide, delivers it from wide of the crease, Gambhir can't resist a slash over the infield without really moving his feet, Hussey leaps at backward point and takes it easily. 17/2
4.2 to AB de Villiers, That's three for the road! Shoaib bangs that in short, puts in the extra effort, de Villiers sizes up for the pull but the ball comes on really quick, he gets a thick top edge and Taibu takes the sitter at square leg. 28/3
4.3 to MK Tiwary, He's on a hat-trick! Delivers from wide of the crease, he gives it everything and gets it to angle in sharply into the right hander, it hits Tiwary in line of offstump and Asad Rauf raises the finger. 28/4
Ishant Sharma301806.0062000
Ashok Dinda402917.25115010
7.3 to S Dhawan, can u people hear it as Eden goes crazy at the fall of Dhawan's wicket. Dhawan was looking to deposit a good length ball over midwicket and misses as Dinda sends the off stump for a cartwheel and sends the crowd into a frenzy and the owner of the Knight Riders is ecstatic. Why not ?. 43/5
Sourav Ganguly402305.7582000
Iqbal Abdulla302207.3363000
Laxmi Shukla0.50637.2040010
17.2 to A Mishra, Mishra tries to get too cheeky by walking across his stumps and dragging it from way outside off, the paddle scoop really travels off his blade but Ishant's position at short fine leg is perfect for the catch. 105/8
17.3 to PJ Sangwan, On a hat-trick here! Sangwan stays at the crease and tries to go downtown, he picks a pitched up delivery outside off and fails to get the elevation, Hussey takes the sitter at long-on. 105/9
17.5 to VY Mahesh, hits the timber and it's all over! Yomahesh walks across his stumps to paddle it fine but the ball is too straight and full, it flattens his middle stump and Shukla picks up three in this magical over. 110/10
