Ashok Dinda403007.50115020
Ishant Sharma402616.50134001
1.6 to GC Smith, timber! Smith gives him the charge and Ishant fires that on a good length on leg stump, he misses and the ball crashes onto the legstump. Smith tried to cart that over long-on but failed. 11/1
Ajit Agarkar4046111.5064300
6.6 to M Kaif, Agarkar shoots back after conceding a six, he changes the pace of the ball, Kaif fails to read it early and tamely chips it back to Agarkar, he closes the face of the bat at the time of contact and hence mistimes it. 53/2
Umar Gul403137.7581112
11.3 to SA Asnodkar, loss of concentration from Asnodkar as he shapes to club that over the on side, the ball comes on a lot quicker and hence he gets a thick top edge which spoons to Hussey at wide mid-off, that was a tame end to a good innings but he's done his job. 106/3
11.6 to SR Watson, two for the over! Watson will feel rather aggrieved with that as he got a thick inside edge onto his pads. The ball swung in, Watson shaped to tuck it away very close to the pads, umpire Koertzen raises the finger, replays showed a thick edge. 111/4
19.2 to YK Pathan, the legstump's outta here! Gul this time pitches it up on middle and leg, Pathan goes for the wild slog, fails to get the pitch of the ball and loses his legstump which goes back a few yards. 190/6
David Hussey2026013.0014000
Sourav Ganguly1014014.0013000
Laxmi Shukla1016116.0011101
17.2 to RA Jadeja, holds the length back, pitches on off and middle and holds its line, Jadeja swings way too early and the ball pegs the offstump back. 168/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Shane Watson3.102226.94112120
4.5 to AB Agarkar, Watson bowls the slow off cutter, Agarkar backs away to slog it but fails to pick the slower one, he gets a thick outside edge to Rawat, the pinch hitter tactic hasn't worked for Kolkata. 44/2
19.1 to AB Dinda, catch of the tournament, surely! Dinda tries to clear the infield on the off side and there are two fielders converging towards it in the region of mid-off - Warne and Taruwar Kohli. They nearly collide but Kohli stretches out his left hand and pulls off a blinder and hangs on to it after Warne eventually collides with him. Several blue shirts crowd the pair and boy is Kohli delighted!. 151/10
Sohail Tanvir403027.5092120
1.4 to Salman Butt, the offstump tumbles... Tanvir pitches it outside off and gets it to nip back in a little, Butt drives away from his body, fails to cover the line and gets a thick inside edge which cannons onto his offstump, as usual Tanvir shows no emotion. 15/1
18.2 to DB Das, the slow leg cutter, he stays at the crease and lofts over the infield but fails to get the desired pace or elevation to go for the maximum, Watson comfortably taks it at long-off. 147/8
Siddharth Trivedi403127.7581220
17.1 to DJ Hussey, Hussey's efforts go to dust as he exposes his stumps and tries to cart one over the on side, Trivedi bowls a yorker on the stumps and takes out the bails. 143/6
17.4 to WP Saha, Saha walks across his stumps and attempts another paddle scoop, Trivedi follows him and dishes out a yorker on middle and off, it goes straight through and hits middle and off. 145/7
Munaf Patel402907.2571100
Shane Warne2020110.0021110
13.5 to SC Ganguly, just before the rope.... Ganguly takes a couple of paces down and lofts a full delivery with the turn to long-on, Kaif just manages to cup it before the rope and stays there for a few seconds, he's relieved he hasn't stepped over. 119/4
