Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Paul Valthaty, 1.6 ov), 2-14 (Rob Quiney, 2.2 ov), 3-70 (Graeme Smith, 8.1 ov), 4-73 (Yusuf Pathan, 8.6 ov), 5-112 (Ravindra Jadeja, 16.2 ov), 6-125 (Dimitri Mascarenhas, 17.6 ov)
2.2 to RJ Quiney, over confidence! Ishant dishes it out wide outside off and Quiney tries to slam him square of the wicket but gets a thick outside edge to Gayle at first slip. 14/2
16.2 to RA Jadeja, goes for a hug heave over the on side but mis-hits it, stays rooted to the crease and gets a thick top edge, Yashpal fixes his gaze on the ball and takes the catch comfortably at short mid-off. 112/5
1.6 to PC Valthaty, nice judgement by Ishant at the boundary, it's short and wide and asking to be slashed hard but the upper cut fails to get the required distance, Ishant runs from third man towards deep point and hangs on to it. 8/1
17.6 to AD Mascarenhas, Mascarenhas gives himself room but the bowler cranks up the pace and bowls a yorker which sends the offstump back by a few yards, good over, save for the wides. 125/6
8.1 to GC Smith, Smith looked in trouble straightaway! He tries to force a full ball to the on side but the ball clips his pad in front of the stumps and lobs low to Gayle at first slip, Mendis goes up for the lbw and Mark Benson checks with his colleague if Gayle took it cleanly, replays confirmed that Smith edged the ball onto his pads, so he's out caught. 70/3
8.6 to YK Pathan, very poor shot by the well-set Pathan, he tries to slog him against the spin and gets a thick top edge, Yashpal takes the skier easily at point. 73/4

Fall of wickets: 1-25 (Brendon McCullum, 3.6 ov), 2-60 (Chris Gayle, 8.2 ov), 3-67 (Laxmi Shukla, 9.5 ov), 4-71 (Brad Hodge, 10.5 ov), 5-94 (Sanjay Bangar, 13.6 ov), 6-143 (Yashpal Singh, 18.5 ov), 7-149 (Sourav Ganguly, 19.5 ov), 8-150 (Ishant Sharma, 19.6 ov)
3.6 to BB McCullum, McCullum tries to take him downtown but he ends up lofting it off the toe edge of the bat, he fails to get the required distance to clear cover and Kamran pedals backwards, takes the catch over his head and falls backwards. 25/1
8.2 to CH Gayle, a very valuable wicket for Rajasthan, Warne invites Gayle to go for the loft over the sight screen by giving the ball a lot of air, Gayle stays at the crease and mis-hits it, Jadeja runs across from long-on and takes the skier. 60/2
18.5 to Yashpal Singh, Yashpal holes out to deep extra cover and Ganguly is livid! Yashpal makes room and scoops it straight to Raut, it was a poor ball but it didn't meet the approval of Ganguly. 143/6
9.5 to LR Shukla, That's a stunner from the keeper! Rawat take a bow! Shukla makes room to crash it past the covers but only manages a thick inside edge, the ball dips on the keeper who moves quickly to his left and takes it one-handed on the slide, he's made up for dropping that skier earlier. 67/3
13.6 to SB Bangar, credit to the field placements for that dismissal, Bangar gets a fraction of width outside off and only manages to slice it on the up straight to Smith at backward point, he takes it low to his right, the pressure was on with the attacking field. 94/5
19.5 to SC Ganguly, Oh boy what's happening here! Ganguly makes room and tries to slash a short and wide delivery and gets an outside edge to the keeper, Rawat asks the question but Kamran doesn't even look back, Ganguly can't believe what he's done. 149/7
10.5 to BJ Hodge, the bowling change works and Rawat's in business again, Munaf teases him outside the offstump and gets the ball to move away off the seam, the ball takes the outside edge as Hodge prods forward half heartedly. 71/4
