Kamran Khan401523.75182030
4.1 to RS Bopara, Kamran comes back again, and he strikes first up, slower ball, a low fulltoss on the leg stump, dipping on Bopara who is way early and lobs it to the left of mid-on, where Munaf takes a diving catch. 21/2
18.1 to IK Pathan, If Warne can't, his prodigy will, off the inside edge, this is full and fast, and Irfan looks to go off side, but is late into it, and gets a thick inside edge onto the stumps. This will pull Punjab back after a superb partnership. 123/5
Dimitri Mascarenhas402907.2584000
Munaf Patel402426.00132010
6.1 to Yuvraj Singh, and Munaf strikes first ball too, what does Warnie tell them, four overs from this end, and three first deliveries have resulted in wickets. this was a superb delivery, length ball, on off, seamed away, and Yuvraj hung his rod, and Rawat caught the edge. 38/3
8.2 to DPMD Jayawardene, No. 2 for Munaf, this is pure pressure, just short of a length, Mahela looks to loft over mid-off, the ball stops a touch, and Mahela has to check the shot, but he ends up lobbing it straight to mid-off. 48/4

Ramesh Powar201005.0030010
Irfan Pathan402626.50123030
1.1 to SA Asnodkar, and Irfan's good night continues, short, Asnodkar goes for the pull, but there is some extra bounce that gets his top-edge, straight to Powar at mid-on, it's game on. 7/1
1.5 to GC Smith, what a beauty, perfect delivery for a left-arm swing bowler, just short of a driving length, pitching off, and then moving away, and kissing the bat on the way... perfect, what ba start for Irfan, two wickets in one over following his 39 with the bat. 9/2
Yusuf Abdulla402135.25143010
4.1 to RJ Quiney, this happens to you only on a very lucky day, this one was angled down leg, slipping away, Quiney looks to flick it for four, but there is a noise as it passes him, and the keeper goes up, and he is given. Lucky wicket, but Rajasthan in deep trouble now. 23/3
4.3 to AD Mascarenhas, Abdulla strikes again, lovely offcutter, pitches on leg stump, just short of a length, Dimi looks to defend but plays inside the line, the offcut beats the bat, and takes the top of off. Superb show by Punjab's left-arm seamers. 27/4
18.1 to RA Jadeja, timber! Jadeja, desperate Jadeja, steps out, is beaten by a swinging yorker. Stumps are splayed. 102/7
Vikram Singh401904.7591000
Piyush Chawla402225.50102000
6.4 to YK Pathan, the big man sinks, what a huge wicket, Yusuf looks for the trademark sweep, but the ball pitches too close to him, and outside off, it takes the top edge that lobs straight to short fine, and will we have an encore of Rajasthan's 58 all out against Bangalore?. 36/5
8.4 to AS Raut, this one shows Raut has no clue what Chawla is bowling, steps out, finds himself short of the pitch of the ball, gives it his all, his all takes it up miles into the air, and towards Powar at mid-off, who makes good ground to hold on to this steepler. 42/6
