Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Sunny Sohal, 1.6 ov), 2-15 (Luke Pomersbach, 2.5 ov), 3-26 (Simon Katich, 4.2 ov), 4-52 (Yuvraj Singh, 8.5 ov), 5-105 (Wilkin Mota, 16.1 ov), 6-122 (Kumar Sangakkara, 17.6 ov), 7-131 (Irfan Pathan, 19.3 ov)
1.6 to S Sohal, tries too much, too early, walks across again, looks to scoop this time over short fine, doesn't connect, it lobs limply towards the fielder, Rohit Sharma takes three steps back and takes a sitter. 12/1
17.6 to KC Sangakkara, that's a big strike, and RP gets the purple cap with that, length ball, Sanga hits it hard down the ground, but straight to Harris at wide long-on. Not quite worked out by RP, but he will take it. 122/6
19.3 to IK Pathan, RP extends his lead, another length ball, Pathan's eyes lit up, he gets under it, too much under it, and skies it straight to Gibbs at long-on. Perhaps it stopped on him a touch. 131/7
4.2 to SM Katich, and he's gone, the ides is right, execution is not, he goes across again, gets on a knee, and looks to loft a length ball over mid-on. But this is not connected properly, and Ojha has to take just four steps back to take the catch. 26/3
16.1 to WA Mota, and gets a wicket first ball, thrown up outside off, and Mota goes for a slog sweep, gets a top edge towards cow corner - long-n is wide, Harris completes an easy catch. Another bowling change that has worked. 105/5
8.5 to Yuvraj Singh, Venu has got Yuvraj, with a faster, flatter delivery. This was bowled at 90ks, pitched just back of a length, just outside off, and hurried Yuvraj who was late in coming down on it. The middle stump is disturbed, Venu is elated. 52/4

19.3 to RG Sharma, and the game turns again, length ball again, Rohit looks to go midwicket, misses, Pathan hits the leg stump, what a game, what an over. 131/7
19.5 to RP Singh, has Pathan done it once and for all? Can't say by the way this match has gone, another slower ball, moves away from RP, who looks for another slog, gets the toe end, and the ball lobs back to the right of Pathan. 131/8
4.2 to AC Gilchrist, this is superb bowling, an offspinner's dream, flighted generously, draws Gilchrist out, and then it dips, pitches two feet short than what Gilchrist expects, and this breaks away big, from outside leg to outside off, and an easy stumping, lovely dismissal. 34/1
4.3 to TL Suman, Powar you beauty, dip, drift and break, thrown up again, Suman steps out, the drift takes it away, beats the big heave, and - hook, line and sinker - it gets the middle stump. 34/2
11.6 to HH Gibbs, Chawla makes up for that easy single, this was short and wide, and was cut away powerfully, but high to the left of point, where Chawla dives, completes the catch and makes sure it doesn't pop out when he falls on the ground. 73/3
13.1 to A Symonds, a lovely stumping, what recovery from Sangakkara. Lovely bowling to begin with, drawing Symonds out, turning it across Symonds, Sanga doesn't collect it cleanly, but gets it on the rebound, falling down at the same time, and whips the bails off. Replays show he had flicked one bail off while falling down, and he didn't have the ball in his hand then. The third umpire has given it, the rules say if only one bail is off, you can remove the second bail and get the stumping. 79/4
13.2 to Y Venugopal Rao, oh Yuvraj you beauty! flat arm ball, just outside off, Venu lets it go, but this one angles in fast and furious, takes the off stump out. Would you believe it? Second hat-trick for Yuvraj. He had taken a wicket last ball of the last over. Even he doesn't realise it. 79/5
