Brett Lee403318.25104110
15.4 to RA Jadeja, caught on the long-on boundary! Jadeja gets lots of height on a heave down the ground but not enough distance, he cleared his front foot again and smashed it. Yusuf settled under the ball and took a well-judged catch a few yards in. He seems to be in some pain though after taking the catch. 105/6
Lakshmipathy Balaji402305.75152120
Iqbal Abdulla402305.75103000
Shakib Al Hasan402837.0091200
6.6 to BB McCullum, that's an odd-looking shot, McCullum began to play the cut along the ground behind point but then lifted his bat to chip the ball tamely in the air towards backward point, a top-edge of sorts. 49/1
14.6 to KM Jadhav, bowled him! Jadhav moved back into his crease to play across the line towards midwicket, Shakib slips in the arm ball that skids though and beats the bat to clip leg stump. That kept a bit low as well.. 100/5
18.4 to R Vinay Kumar, Vinay Kumar tries to slog across the line, aiming for the midwicket boundary. He misses a straight ball and is bowled. 127/7
Yusuf Pathan412035.00131100
7.6 to DPMD Jayawardene, lbw! Mahela isn't happy but he has to go, he got down on one knee and tried to sweep, he missed and got hit by a straight ball. The doubt was whether the impact was outside the line of off stump. The ball hit the under side of the thigh guard and looked in line. There was glove on the ball, though, that's why Mahela was unhappy. Aleem Dar gets one wrong. 51/2
9.5 to BJ Hodge, middle stump lies flat on its back and that is an exuberant celebration from Yusuf! Hodge went on the back foot to pull one from outside off, the pitch is slow so the ball didn't come on to the bat, he ended up inside-edging it on to middle. 55/3
11.5 to PA Patel, lbw! Yusuf slants the slightly quicker one into the left-hander from round the wicket, Parthiv pushes forward but defends down the wrong line, misses the ball entirely and he's struck plumb in front. 65/4

RP Singh402526.25114000
4.2 to G Gambhir, bowled him! Gambhir's middle stump has been uprooted. RP Singh bowled a good length ball that pitched on middle and straightened, Gambhir closed the face too early and was beaten, Kochi are definitely in this now. Gambhir played from his crease when he should have been forward. 27/2
14.6 to Shakib Al Hasan, bowled him! RP Singh sent down a very low full toss, Shakib moved towards the off to swing the ball through leg, he missed and the ball hit leg stump before going towards fine leg. 86/5
Vinay Kumar402115.25101000
3.3 to JH Kallis, caught on the deep square leg boundary! It was a bouncer and Kallis pulled it even though there was a fielder in the deep. The fielder nearly over-ran the ball moving to his left but took the catch in the end. Kallis had fallen to the short ball against Rajasthan as well. He made good contact this time, just picked out the fielder. 24/1
Ravindra Jadeja402526.25101110
5.6 to MS Bisla, bowled him! Bisla makes a bit of room and tries to drive on the off side, he played inside the line and the ball held its line to hit off stump. 37/3
16.5 to MK Tiwary, stumped! Superb thinking from Jadeja if that was intentional. Tiwary steps out of his crease, Jadeja sees him coming and fires the ball flat and fast down leg side. Tiwary misses it and Parthiv completes the stumping. 101/7
Ramesh Powar402917.2580200
15.5 to YK Pathan, caught at short third man! Huge moment in the game. Powar went round the wicket to change the angle, slanting the ball across the right-hander with flight, Yusuf aimed for the midwicket boundary this time but his heave resulted in a top edge to Murali. 97/6
Muthiah Muralidaran401814.50111010
17.3 to B Lee, caught at long-on! Lee stood in his crease and smashed the ball hard and flat, he didn't get enough elevation though and Jadhav barely had to move as the ball sped to him at head height. 105/8
