Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Luke Ronchi, 1.5 ov), 1-20* (Dominic Thornely, retired hurt), 2-46 (Sanath Jayasuriya, 5.4 ov), 3-97 (Pinal Shah, 13.3 ov), 4-125 (Robin Uthappa, 16.5 ov), 5-152 (Abhishek Nayar, 18.5 ov), 6-165 (Shaun Pollock, 19.6 ov)
18.5 to AM Nayar, well held by Zaheer at fine leg, after Nayar pulls a short one on the stumps, just keeping his eyes on the ball and cupping it to his right, a spirited innings comes to an end. 152/5
1.5 to L Ronchi, oh well held, Kohli! Ronchi drives into the air towards cover-point and Kohli plucks a superb catch diving away to his left and low to the ground, that was firmly struck but he did excellenty. 9/1
19.6 to SM Pollock, yorker does the trick, pitched up just outside off and Pollock just drags it back onto leg stump as Zaheer keeps the damage minimal off the last ball. 165/6
13.3 to PR Shah, full and very wide, he reaches out and makes contact, but its a mistimed slog that spirals up and settles in Kohli's hands, stepping back at extra cover. 97/3
16.5 to RV Uthappa, brilliantly stumped! Uthappa perishes attempting another of those cheeky scoops, walking down and across well before the ball is bowled, missing the line and Boucher pulls off an extremely neat piece of glovework, as its not easy standing up to a medium-pacer. 125/4

TOTAL19.4 Ov (RR: 8.44)166/5
Fall of wickets: 1-37 (Shivnarine Chanderpaul, 4.6 ov), 2-68 (Rahul Dravid, 8.5 ov), 3-76 (Ross Taylor, 9.6 ov), 4-106 (Virat Kohli, 13.3 ov), 5-161 (Jacques Kallis, 18.4 ov)
13.3 to V Kohli, easy catch, as the extra bounce gets Kohli in a tangle, pulling with his eyes taken off the ball, and all Ronchi has to do is run in a pace and take the top-edge. 106/4
4.6 to S Chanderpaul, and he falls, flicking a straight one over square leg and the man on the boundary just stands where he is and accepts the slog, no doubt the pain in his knee contributed to that rash stroke, to hand Kulkarni his maiden wicket in IPL. 37/1
9.6 to LRPL Taylor, gone! Taylor, after a good little camoe, throws it away with a shimmy down the track but mistimes the lofted drive down Nayar's throat at long-off. 76/3
8.5 to R Dravid, oh ho! Harbhajan ends the over with a wicket, tossing it up on middle and leg, luring Dravid into a tame chip back in the air, Harbhajan dives forward to his right in front of Taylor and cups it just off the turf before celebrating with vigorous Punjabi gusto, even as Dravid questions the validity of the take, slowly waiting and looking to square leg and walking off. 68/2
18.4 to JH Kallis, what a catch! Brilliant! Kallis kneels down and slogs Harbhajan and Nayar dives forward at deep midwicket to pluck his third, and by far best, take of the evening. 161/5
