Albie Morkel402817.00113100
16.5 to EJG Morgan, Full in length and straight and Morgan goes for the good-old slog across the line and completely misses it. Timber!. 119/5
Sudeep Tyagi401904.75132010
Lakshmipathy Balaji4049112.2585311
4.4 to JH Kallis, This is the first time that Kallis has got out in this IPL.. Stop the press. Call your grandfather. Tell your neighbor. Silence your dog. Kallis, again, shuffled right across, got outside off stump and tried to whip-flick a length delivery over the on-side field. Thin air. The ball flies through straight to crash into the middle stump.. 28/1
Muthiah Muralidaran402536.25163110
7.6 to R Dravid, And super comeback from Murali! It was the topspinner this time. It landed on the middle and off stump line, from round the stumps, and moved towards off stump.. Rahul again rocked back and tried to cut it but misses it completely. Timber!. 59/2
9.4 to MK Pandey, Murali strikes again. Manish went for the big slog sweep this time and ended up slicing it towards mid-on. The ball swirled down from the night sky .. Raina went back from short midwicket and took a good catch as the ball dropped behind his shoulder.. 63/3
15.4 to V Kohli, Redemption time for Parthiv. Again, Murali beats Kohli in flight by the doosra and also by the shortening of the length, and the ball went past the attempted lofted slog .. this time it was outside off and hence lot more easier for Patel who did what was required of him. 110/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Praveen Kumar402115.25122020
0.6 to PA Patel, PK takes out Parthiv. He switched to round the stumps for this delivery and got the ball to curve away from Parthiv from that angle. Fine delivery. Parthiv had a lame poke at it. Fatal.. 2/1
Dale Steyn402506.25123030
Anil Kumble401513.75121000
12.3 to M Vijay, Vijay goes for the slog sweep but this time Kumble bowled the leg break outside off and in trying to fetch it from there, Vijay miscues the shot to deep midwicket.. 74/5
Jacques Kallis402907.25105000
Vinay Kumar4040410.00103310
9.4 to GJ Bailey, Two wickets in Vinay's over. A run out and now Bailey's wicket. A lovely leg cutter, around the off stump and Bailey edges the off drive. Vinay turns and appeals. Tiffin tells him to look back,. the batsman is walking. Very good ball from Vinay. In the last year's IPl, he removed Tendulkar with a fine leg cutter. He has now ended Bailey's misery. 59/3
11.3 to SK Raina, Vinay strikes again! Raina goes for a slog across the line, to a length delivery that pitched outside off stump and moving further away, and ends up edging it to Kallis at wide third man. 71/4
15.6 to S Badrinath, Badri too is gone. He actually played a quite decent shot but he has found the fielder. He threatened to move outside leg before he pressed right across the stumps and scooped the low full toss to deep backward square-leg region where the Appanna, the sub for Uthappa who had a ice pack on his shoulder after his innings, was stationed.. 107/6
19.4 to JA Morkel, Vinay is pumped up after taking out Albie with a super yorker. He had moved to round the stumps and ripped the ball full and straight on the base of off stump. Crash!. 135/7
