Charl Langeveldt401533.75162010
1.1 to RJ Quiney, and Langeveldt strikes in his first ball, he bangs it in short and Quiney tries to hook him but gets a thick top edge and the keeper jogs to his right and takes the sitter. 22/1
3.3 to NV Ojha, Shoaib Shaikh pulls off a stunner! Langeveldt gets the ball to kick up and Ojha pokes his bat out for a half-hearted cut and gets a thick outside edge, the ball drifts away from Shaikh's right but he leaps and pulls off the catch one handed. 28/3
9.2 to NK Patel, Ganguly takes the catch at mid-on! Patel fails to control the pull off a short ball and the ball is skied to Ganguly's left, he covers a bit of ground and falls over after taking the catch. 59/5
Ashok Dinda401203.00171010
Ajit Agarkar401523.75162000
5.3 to J Botha, timber! Botha walks across his stumps to force it through the on side but he swings too early and gets a thick onside edge which cannons onto off and middle stumps. 42/4
19.3 to SK Warne, the over gets better for Agarkar! He fires an inswinging yorker which just hits the edge of the base of the legstump and the bail takes its own sweet time to get off the groove, Warne didn't pick the yorker. 99/9
Sourav Sarkar301515.0040000
17.2 to RA Jadeja, makes room and the bowler fires it on the stumps, the ball just flicks the pads slightly and flattens the legstump. 92/8

Munaf Patel401423.50192001
0.6 to SC Ganguly, Ganguly takes a couple of paces down the pitch and makes room to slice it over the off side but he only manages hitting it straight to Jadeja at point who cups it and falls over backwards. 9/1
4.6 to Yashpal Singh, Yashpal's misely ends and Rajasthan are really making a game of this! Munaf bangs it in short outside off and an under pressure Yashpal can't resist the upper cut, the ball dips in front of Quiney but he times his dive well and pulls it off inches from the turf, the extra ball has worked to Rajasthan's favour. 21/3
Amit Singh3.301915.42123000
1.1 to BB McCullum, plumb! Man do we have a twist here? The ball lands close to the cracks on the surface just short of a good length and shoots through much lower than McCullum expects it to, he swings and misses and gets caught on the thigh in front of middle stump, his legs were bent at the point of contact. 9/2
Johan Botha401924.75131100
7.1 to BJ Hodge, brilliant stuff by Ojha! Hodge drops the ball in front of silly point and takes off but the ball spins backwards to the keeper, Ojha flicks it back at the stumps and Hodge's bat was over the line but in the air, the third umpire takes a look. 30/4
9.1 to DJ Hussey, The KKR choke continues! Botha drops it short and gets some extra bounce, Hussey bends his knee for a front foot pull and the ball lands down Neeraj Patel's throat at deep midwicket. 37/5
