TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.80)156/5
Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Brendon McCullum, 1.4 ov), 2-30 (Parthiv Patel, 5.2 ov), 3-81 (Michael Klinger, 11.5 ov), 4-96 (Ravindra Jadeja, 14.4 ov), 5-134 (Mahela Jayawardene, 18.6 ov)
1.4 to BB McCullum, tame dismissal, short and wide and McCullum slashes at it, there isn't much pace in Unadkat so it doesn't fly away, lands safely in the palms of Jacques Kallis at slip. 6/1
5.2 to PA Patel, Rajat Bhatia holds his nerve to take a good catch, Unadkat dropped short and Parthiv appeared to have made his mind up. He's thrown his wicket away here, came down the track and again tried to swing it over midwicket, miscued it and Bhatia ran back a few paces and clasped it close to his chest on the third attempt. 30/2
14.4 to RA Jadeja, not the slower one, bowled at normal pace, came onto Jadeja a little quicker, he had shaped up for the slog-sweep and couldn't connect well, got a top edge and Yusuf made no mistake standing at square leg. 96/4
11.5 to M Klinger, Klinger holes out, Abdulla's right at the edge of the ropes at deep midwicket, it's tossed up and Klinger accepted the invitation, came down the track and launch it high and handsome but couldn't clear the ropes as Abdulla judged it to perfection and kept his balance to take it inches inside the boundary. 81/3

Fall of wickets: 1-69 (Jacques Kallis, 10.2 ov), 2-69 (Gautam Gambhir, 10.3 ov), 3-97 (Manoj Tiwary, 13.6 ov), 4-132 (Eoin Morgan, 18.4 ov), 5-132 (Yusuf Pathan, 18.5 ov), 6-138 (Brett Lee, 19.4 ov), 7-139 (Mark Boucher, 19.6 ov)
19.6 to MV Boucher, bowled'im, Kochi finish on a high as RP sends back Boucher who swings wildly but finds his off stump pegged back. 139/7
13.6 to MK Tiwary, Tiwary has succumed, short ball on the off and he went for the pull, came off the bottom of the bat and McCullum at midwicket took it easily. 97/3
18.5 to YK Pathan, Yusuf goes and it lookes beyond them now, full outside off and it's smashed hard but straight to Mahela who is positioned perfectly at extra cover, just inside the circle. 132/5
10.2 to JH Kallis, bowled'im! Was the slower legcutter, Kallis drove at that inside the line, tried to play it past extra cover, it cut away to beat the bat and peg back the off stump, a timely breakthrough for Kochi. 69/1
10.3 to G Gambhir, gone first ball! The tide is turning, good length and Gambhir stepped away to play his favourite shot first ball, made room to clear extra cover but couldn't get the elevation he needed, played it straight into the hands of Mahela, Gomez is on a hat-trick. 69/2
