Fall of wickets: 1-46 (Herschelle Gibbs, 3.5 ov), 2-66 (VVS Laxman, 7.1 ov), 3-127 (Adam Gilchrist, 13.1 ov), 4-147 (Scott Styris, 15.3 ov), 5-172 (Rohit Sharma, 18.2 ov), 6-174 (Venugopal Rao, 18.6 ov)
3.5 to HH Gibbs, he's given him! PK pitches it full on middle and leg stump, Gibbs is late on the attempted flick across the line and umpire Sahiba raises his finger in a flash ... replays show the ball was hitting leg stump. 46/1
18.2 to RG Sharma, ah, a cheeky attempt to go across the sticks ends his fine innings! Rohit walks right across to well outside off stump but the ball is not as straight as he would have liked, then he closes the face early and pops up an easy catch that KP, running in from mid-on, takes near the nonstriker's stumps ... but take a bow, son, that is a fine innings to boost Deccan. 172/5
7.1 to VVS Laxman, and he strikes first ball, what a guy! Pitches it up and Laxman drives on the rise but he doesn't get all the elevation needed and picks out a tumbling Steyn running in from long-off, diving forward and then holding the ball as he trips. 66/2
13.1 to AC Gilchrist, well taken there! KP tosses it up wide, Gilchrist drives hard and flat but Virat Kohli intercepts it at short extra cover with a lovely leaping catch high to his left. 127/3
15.3 to SB Styris, caught PK, bowled KP! Another big swing across the line but he's gotten underneath this one a bit too much, its very high and finds an animated Praveen out at wide long-on. 147/4

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Jesse Ryder, 0.1 ov), 2-19 (Jacques Kallis, 3.5 ov), 3-38 (Robin Uthappa, 7.2 ov), 4-62 (Kevin Pietersen, 10.3 ov), 5-115 (Rahul Dravid, 15.4 ov), 6-123 (Rajesh Bishnoi, 16.3 ov), 7-134 (Karn Sharma, 17.4 ov), 8-158 (Virat Kohli, 19.4 ov)
0.1 to JD Ryder, what a ripper and Ryder's nightmare continues! He got a second-ball duck in the first game, was dropped for the second, and goes first ball on return! An express yorker from Edwards beats the bat and pegs back the off stump, fantastic start. 0/1
3.5 to JH Kallis, got him at cover! Pitched up wide to be hit but Kallis, as he has so often in his international career, slaps the half-volley straight to Rohit on the off side, who takes it easily. 19/2
19.4 to V Kohli, takes a few steps and ends up giving Gibbs an easy catch at long-on. 158/8
10.3 to KP Pietersen, clever bowling, daft shot, simple stumping! Ojha tosses it up unabashedly, lures KP out of his crease, playing across his stumps, he misses all ends up and Gilchrist mops up. 62/4
7.2 to RV Uthappa, great catch out at deep midwicket! Another firm shot from Uthappa, picking the length and pulling it flat over the infield but its that man Ravi Teja who sprints across and dives to his left to hold a beauty ... really good catch, he had ground to cover and was chasing a hard ball. 38/3
15.4 to R Dravid, gone! Dravid gives Styris the charge, who holds back the length, Dravid slaps the ball in the air but picks out a running fielder down at a sort of wide long-off. 115/5
17.4 to KV Sharma, good catch from the old man! Karan again makes room and reaches out to bottom-edge a very wide delivery, Gilchrist flings himself to his left and pouches it low. 134/7
