2.5 to Salman Butt, caught!

4.2 to DJ Hussey, caught! Pollock's a master! He pitches on a good length outside off stump, drawing Hussey forward, he tries to drive on the up but feathers an edge through to Takawale who takes a comfortable catch, that's a huge wicket for Mumbai. 21/3
6.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, caught! Pollock's done it again! He hits the perfect length around off stump, Hafeez isn't sure whether to come forward or go back, in the end he gets squared up and pushes tentatively at the ball form his crease, Pollock seams the ball away from the right-hander and hits the outside edge, Uthappa takes a simple catch at second slip. 28/4

7.5 to WP Saha, caught again! Saha flashes hard at one outside off stump, he gets undone by the bounce and seam movement away from him and nicks it straight to Tendulkar who takes a regulation catch at first slip, there's good carry on this surface and Tendulkar is standing rather deep. 29/5
13.4 to AB Agarkar, caught! The short of a length ball rises on Agarkar just outside off stump, he tries to cut but gets a thick outside edge to Tendulkar at first slip, he takes another easy catch and throws the ball in the air with glee etched on his face. 60/8
Rohan Raje2.201626.8573000
9.1 to LR Shukla, bowled him! Raje strikes first ball! He pitches the ball on a good length and angles the ball into the right-hander, Shukla begins to play the flick but gets squared up as the ball seams away from him off the pitch, he misses and off stump goes for a walk. 35/6
15.2 to Shoaib Akhtar, that's it! all over, Tendulkar's taken his fourth catch! Raje bowls the slower ball on middle stump, Shoaib mis-hits it straight to Tendulkar at midwicket, isn't he thrilled!. 67/10
Dominic Thornely30722.33120010
12.4 to SC Ganguly, splendidly caught! That's the end of Ganguly!

14.3 to I Sharma, caught! The rot continues for Kolkata, Ishant drives a good length ball in the air and right back at Thornely who takes a relatively simple catch, by caught and bowled standards. 65/9
