Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-63 (Adam Gilchrist, 6.5 ov), 2-124 (Dwayne Smith, 12.5 ov), 3-136 (Rohit Sharma, 14.4 ov), 4-137 (VVS Laxman, 14.6 ov), 5-141 (Herschelle Gibbs, 15.4 ov), 6-156 (Venugopal Rao, 17.4 ov), 7-161 (RP Singh, 18.4 ov), 8-163 (Fidel Edwards, 19.2 ov), 9-168 (Dwaraka Ravi Teja, 19.6 ov)
17.4 to Y Venugopal Rao, Malinga didn't need Sachin for this one. Yorker, on the leg, fast, Venu has no reply, tries to save the toe, which he does, but the ball takes the pad, and hits the base of leg. 156/6
19.2 to FH Edwards, Slinga to slinga, see you later, Edwards makes room, but a perfect yourler comes out, low trajectory, headed for the base of the middle stump. Even a specialist batsman would have been incredibly proud had he got a single off this one. 163/8
19.6 to DB Ravi Teja, Still no runs off bat in this over, will he bowl a last-over maiden? Will he ever, another yorker, Teja is right in front of this yorker, Dharmasena thinks long and hard and raises his finger. A double-wicket maiden to finish it off. Malinga you beauty. 168/9
6.5 to AC Gilchrist, and he gets Gilchrist with the poorest delivery he has bowled so far, this would have been a wide outside off had Gilchrist not driven at it with all his might, but all he manages is a faint edge through to Pinal Shah. 63/1
14.4 to RG Sharma, this is superb field placement, it was a nice shot, looking to hit the length ball over extra cover, and he does that, but the sweeper cover is straighter this time, and the ball goes straight down Dhawan's throat. This field placement could have a bit to do with the knwoledge that Rohit plays that shot really well. 136/3
14.6 to VVS Laxman, a golden duck for Laxman! Not his game this, to make room and hit "ugly" shots. Laxman was always backing away here, Bravo slipped in the bouncer, Laxman, not in position to play the shot (yes Laxman not in position!) and top-edges it towards deep square leg. 137/4
18.4 to RP Singh, and Harbhajan fools RP this time, RP looked for a big shot again, stepped out, Harbhajan tossed it up again, RP was clearly early into the shot, and ended up lobbing it to cover. 161/7
12.5 to DR Smith, Jaya has got Smith! he slowed it up this time, Smith went for the trademark slog-sweep, and missed, and Jaya was accurate enough to hit. Nonetheless a superb cameo by Smith, who was promoted up the order. 124/2

Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Sanath Jayasuriya, 1.4 ov), 2-86 (Sachin Tendulkar, 10.5 ov), 3-92 (Shikhar Dhawan, 12.3 ov), 4-105 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 14.3 ov), 5-120 (Abhishek Nayar, 16.2 ov), 6-144 (Dwayne Bravo, 18.2 ov), 7-154 (Harbhajan Singh, 19.3 ov)
16.2 to AM Nayar, this is a day of the slingers, Edwards goes round the wicket, gets it full, almost a yorker, just outside off, Nayar goes for the big hit, and gets a thin edge through to Gilchrist. Deccan in front now. 120/5
18.2 to DJ Bravo, and Edwards has turned it for Deccan, what a big wicket, this was full and straight, Bravo was caught in the crease, looking to get inside it and go leg side, but Edwards was too sharp for that and hit him right in front. Is this the game?. 144/6
1.4 to ST Jayasuriya, RP's golden arm works, perhaps the wrong shot from Jayasuriya, a slow start has frustrated him, and he looks to pull a delivery that is not short enough. It bounces a bit on him, too, and gets a top-edge that flies high, and the purple cap fits for RP. 4/1
19.3 to Harbhajan Singh, and there RP gets his wicket, that surely has to be the game, it's a fulltoss, and Harbhajan's bat twirls in his hands as he gives it all his power, and the ball flies to long-on. 154/7
10.5 to SR Tendulkar, and that's smart bowling again, almost a replay of the first ball, Tendulkar steps out, makes room to go over extra, but this is too full, and he ends up hitting it straight to Gibbs at extra cover. And once again, a wicket falls immediately after the time-out, and his timing has looked off right since the break. 86/2
12.3 to S Dhawan, smart bowling again, this one was slower than the earlier ones, flighted too, Dhawan looks to slog it, and misses it completely, the off stump is out. 92/3
14.3 to JP Duminy, what a big wicket, Ojha has struck thrice in three overs, with a fulltoss this time, Duminy steps down, and lofts it over the leg-side field, it seems like it has gone between deep dquare and midwicket, but Smith runs fast from deep square, very fast, to surprise everybody. Superb catch, looked comfortable in the end. 105/4
