Iqbal Abdulla401924.75143000
7.5 to AC Gilchrist, bowled him, Abdulla is elated and sets off a celebratory run, not exactly his greatest delivery but he doesn't care, it was a slightly short ball, Gilchrist shaped to mow that to the leg side, but it skids on and he misses the ball and is nutmegged, through his leg and on to the stumps, Dav Whatmore pumps his fists in the dug out. 44/3
14.6 to DJ Hussey, another big lbw appeal, this time the umpire is convinced, the big wicket of Hussey for Abdulla, he's having a great season, this was fired in quick, Hussey looking for the spin but there isn't no extravagant turn, slips past the bat and on to the pad, was that doing enough to take legstump? I'm not sure it was, the umpire does though. 86/5
Yusuf Pathan402416.00123010
4.3 to PC Valthaty, Valthaty is gone, he hasn't had much strike so far, he spies a slightly short one, Valthaty takes on the fielder at long-on, the flat-batted hit doesn't have enough power behind it, it sails only as far as Manoj Tiwary. 32/1

Bhargav Bhatt402225.50112000
1.1 to JH Kallis, Bharghav Bhatt has got big wicket, he makes the first one turn a long way, Kallis is surprised by that, and checks his shot, ball loops to cover for an overhead catch, Punjab fight. 5/1
4.2 to EJG Morgan, superb catch from Ryan Harris ends Morgan's cameo, an effortless chip shot from Morgan towards deep midwicket, Harris charges in from the deep and takes the ball low as it was dipping on him, Punjab need more of these if they are to make a fight of it. 35/2
