TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.25)145/9
Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Jesse Ryder, 0.5 ov), 2-27 (Rajesh Bishnoi, 4.4 ov), 3-38 (Shreevats Goswami, 6.1 ov), 4-80 (Robin Uthappa, 11.5 ov), 5-80 (Jacques Kallis, 11.6 ov), 6-84 (Mark Boucher, 13.1 ov), 7-128 (Roelof van der Merwe, 17.4 ov), 8-133 (Virat Kohli, 18.1 ov), 9-136 (Anil Kumble, 19.1 ov)
0.5 to JD Ryder, Mahela's taken it! Ryder prods forward at a delivery which straightens outside the offstump and the thick outside edge is taken by Jayawardene who falls to his right at first slip. 2/1
18.1 to V Kohli, it's a full ball and he kneels down and tries to scoop him over the sight screen but he doesn't get the elevation and Chawla takes the catch running to his left from long-on. 133/8
4.4 to R Bishnoi, Punjab saw it coming, Abdulla keeps it full outside the offstump and invites the uppish drive, Bishnoi obliges and ends up tamely chipping it to Chawla at short cover, there was a packed off side field waiting for that offering. 27/2
6.1 to SP Goswami, Abdulla gets a bit of extra bounce and that wrecks Goswami's plan of timing it over the ropes, he tries to clear it over cover point but gets a top edge and Chawla runs forward from the boundary and catches it. 38/3
17.4 to RE van der Merwe, another mis-hit and it lands down Irfan's throat at deep extra cover! He gets on his knee and tries to pick him over the on side but it goes the other way and Irfan completes the catch while looking into the lights. 128/7
19.1 to A Kumble, he follows up the bouncer with a straight yorker which goes right through the gate and pushes the legstump back, Kumble had exposed all 3 stumps. 136/9
11.5 to RV Uthappa, Uthappa tries to go over the top with a slog and he gets a thick top edge, Katich runs forward from deep midwicket and takes the skier. 80/4
11.6 to JH Kallis, the arm ball foxes him! Lands on the offstump and goes straight through, Kallis is too late to get his bat down and the ball shaves the off stump. 80/5
13.1 to MV Boucher, That's hat-trick No.4 in the IPL! That's yet another arm ball which fetches him a wicket, he slips in the fast arm ball which lands on the offstump, skids through and clips his front pad in front of the stumps as he shapes to work it to the on side, the umpire lifts the finger immediately. 84/6

19.4 to IK Pathan, Praveen gets away with a low full toss! Pathan stays at the crease and tries to club him over the sight screen but he strikes the ball off the bottom half of the bat and Kohli makes no mistake at long-on. 137/6
19.5 to PP Chawla, timber! He fires in a fast yorker swinging in, Chawla chases it and gets a thik inside edge which flattens his offstump. 137/7
10.6 to K Goel, just after the strategic time-out! He tosses it up on middle and off and Goel goes downtown and tries to clear long-on but he hits it too flat and finds Kohli. 73/2
17.1 to DPMD Jayawardene, now there's a twist in the tale! Jayawardene gets on his knee and tries to slice it high down to deep backward point but he ends up splicing it down to Kallis at backward point. 116/4
9.5 to Yuvraj Singh, an entertaining innings comes to a tame end, he gets on his knee and attempts another slog sweep to clear deep midwicket but he doesn't quite get to the pitch of the ball and gets a thick top edge, Kallis pedals back and takes the catch outside the 30-yard ring. 70/1
18.2 to KC Sangakkara, look at Kumble celebrate! He slips in the googly and drops it a bit short, Sanga makes room and tries to slap it somewhere but he fails to read the googly and loses his middle stump. 129/5
