Ryan Harris402025.00132000
4.3 to BB McCullum, gives it away this time, survived a couple of scares but fails to take advantage, short on the off, usually plays the pull well but not quite so this time, got the top edge and Suman at square leg ran back a few steps to pouch a well-judged catch. 27/1
17.5 to BJ Hodge, caught at short fine, short on middle, makes way to pull it over midwicket, mistimes it, gets the top-edge straight to Harmeet Singh, Hodge goes after a fine knock. 117/3
RP Singh3.103009.4782122
Andrew Symonds402817.00121200
19.2 to WP Saha, holes out in the deep, full and wide, makes room and slices it in front of deep cover, RP is late to get onto it but covers good ground to dive forward and pluck a sharp catch. 152/4
Harmeet Singh3.5040010.4353200
Pragyan Ojha302408.0062100
Rohit Sharma201517.5041000
14.5 to SC Ganguly, the end of a struggle, slightly short on the off, made room and tried to clear long-off, no timing on that one, landed safe in the hands of Harris. 85/2

Ishant Sharma402305.75134000
Mashrafe Mortaza4058014.5074422
Murali Kartik401213.00140000
12.3 to HH Gibbs, Kartik strikes! Bowled it short on middle, a long hop that should have been dismissed but Gibbs didn't get the elevation, rocked back and pulled it straight to Hussey at deep midwicket. 85/2
Brad Hodge302317.6672100
9.2 to AC Gilchrist, a timely wicket for Kolkata, tossed up outside off, a little slower through the air, reached for it and tried to sweep it square, it turned, went off the top edge and sailed towards Laxmi Shukla at deep square leg who judged it well diving to his right, though it did seem for a second it would pop out, but he clasped it well in the end. 68/1
