Fidel Edwards402115.25153000
0.2 to PA Patel, and Fidel strikes second up, and three matches ina row we have the scorecard reading 0 for 1, this was fast, 142ks, bouncing into his ribs, and Parthiv gloves it down the leg side. Unlucky way to get out, but it was a good delivery, surprising Parthiv with the bounce. 0/1
RP Singh3032110.6694123
19.5 to S Badrinath, and this was always coming, just back of a length, Badri throws his bat at it, top-edges it, it goes miles in the air, and RP catches it on the adjacent pitch. 165/6
Dwayne Smith1017017.0002100
Venugopal Rao403518.7562210
16.5 to JA Morkel, what price justice indeed, this is a much better hit, off the middle, slog sweep, goes where he wants it to, towards deep midwicket, and finds the boundary fielder, poetic justice. 129/5
Rohit Sharma301816.0062000
6.5 to SK Raina, finally they hold on to a catch, and what a catch it is, thrown up to Raian who absolutely murders it back to Sharma, low and fast, there is not even a second to react, but Sharma bends low and catches it smoothly, throws it miles in the air to celebrate, and what a catch it was, no lesser celebration would to justice to it. 64/2
Pragyan Ojha201125.5041000
12.3 to MS Dhoni, Ojha gets another one, gets this to rip, Dhoni has stepped out, is short of the pitch, he is looking extra cover, but this slices off the face and lobs straight to sweeper-cover. 102/3
12.6 to ML Hayden, what a big over from Ojha, two wickets, and it is Hayden now, the big fish, this is bowled full, into the pads, Hayden is looking to charge down, but is cramped by it, and is too close to the ball, so doesn't get elevation, and it goes straight to midwicket. 103/4

Lakshmipathy Balaji3.3041111.7194310
13.4 to RG Sharma, those two dot balls have done the job, this is short and slightly slower, Rohit makes room to cut, but it's not wide enough, gets the edge, what a comeback by Bala. 114/3
Manpreet Gony1020020.0013110
Albie Morkel302508.3341101
Muthiah Muralidaran401714.25111010
15.2 to DR Smith, Murali strikes in his last over, the last throw of Dhoni's dice has worked, this was a perfect delivery from round the stumps, sharp offbreak, pitching offish, and straightening, beating the forward defensive. 130/4
Suresh Raina401824.50101000
5.4 to AC Gilchrist, and Raina gets a wicket, just like Rohit Sharma did for Deccan, short and wide, but slow, and Gilchrist looks to make all the pace, and hits straight to short third man, in the air. 67/1
7.3 to VVS Laxman, and Raian strikes again, he is wearing yellow, but his arm has been gold, a mirror image of Gilchrist's dismissal, short and wide, and Laxman cuts in the air, stright to backward point. 75/2
