RP Singh403418.5073100
2.6 to M Vijay, got 'em, superb delivery, reminds you of England 2007, stinging yorker from wide of the crease, coming in with the angle, Vijay is late in jamming down the bat, and loses the off stump. 19/1
5.4 to SK Raina, Raina is gone, one hit too many, Sree lets rip a full toss that gets on to Raina quicker than he imagined, he again targeted long on, but got only elevation on the ball, RP had settled under the ball at mid on and takes it cleanly. 40/2
Muthiah Muralidaran402606.5092100
Brad Hodge302418.0041100
8.4 to S Badrinath, gone! to one of the catches of the tournament, full delivery from Hodge, again Badri had decided to target the midwicket boundary, but could not time the shot as well as the previous one, long on rushed to his right, even as the ball was dipping on him, he dived to his right and took it inches from the ground, it is RP Singh. 60/3
Vinay Kumar201708.5032010
Ravindra Jadeja402626.5091110
14.3 to MEK Hussey, Hussey is gone, this time he is gone, no more chances, low full toss, he looks to bash it wide of deep midwicket, but can't time it, Gnaneswara Rao runs across to take the catch. 97/4
16.2 to MS Dhoni, Parthiv has taken a catch! he has managed to hold on, Dhoni walks immediately even as Jadeja appeals, it was the flatter and quicker one outside off, did not get up much, he went for cut shot, but edged it in to Parthiv's gloves, and for once, nothing popped out of them. 116/5

Ravichandran Ashwin401614.00100000
2.2 to PA Patel, how soft is that for a soft dismissal? saw a flighted ball, and looked to whip it over mid on, ended up mistiming it completely, and the ball hung around in the air and came weakly over to mid on who gladly accepted the gift, PArthiv's horror game is over. 11/1
Doug Bollinger403819.5063130
17.6 to RA Jadeja, Suresh Raina takes an excellent catch at deep square leg, Jadeja had walked across and outside off stump to flick the fuller one over short fine leg, edged it high in the air, back went Suresh from backward square leg, kept his eyes on the ball, and took a juggling, diving, tumbling catch in the end, he is delighted with the effort, so he should be. 115/4
Shadab Jakati402315.7592000
13.5 to BB McCullum, gone! this was coming, came down in another of those blind charges, missed the flat ball completely but the ball did not return the favour, it clattered right in to the middle of middle stump, extremely uncharacteristic knock from Baz is over. 83/3
Dwayne Bravo403619.0093220
6.4 to Y Gnaneswara Rao, Bravo does it with the slower one, bowls the bait very full, Rao goes for the big shot over the bowler's head, gets in to it too early, the ball goes high off the edge and Bravo is waiting underneath as it comes down. 45/2
