Zaheer Khan402616.5072000
18.3 to R Vinay Kumar, Vinay Kumar is gone. He has no choice but to go for the big hits. Gets too under this length ball, and Vettori completes the catch at mid-off. 115/7
Sreenath Aravind402025.00132010
13.3 to BJ Hodge, Zaheer has plucked a mango here, and it is mango season too in India. Just about. This was pulled seemingly for four over short fine leg, until Zaheer leapt full length, and stuck his left hand out. Lovely catch. 89/5
17.2 to RV Gomez, slower ball, Gomez didn't have many options but to hit out as he looked out of his depth, and Kohli makes this catch to his right at long-on look simpler than it is. 106/6
Chris Gayle402616.50143050
8.2 to M Klinger, yorked him, bowled him! Gayle is loving this. Klinger looks to charge at him, Gayle bowls this right on the crease, and takes the middle stump out. And what an ever-lasting smile Gayle has on his face. And his team-mates are enjoying this too. Although he doesn't dance this time. 64/2
Daniel Vettori402426.00103000
5.3 to BB McCullum, Vettori wins over fellow Kiwi. He is a shrewd bowler. McCullum charges at him again, Vettori refuses to push it through, instead bowling it slightly short and slightly wide, MCCullum is beaten in the flight and ends up spooning this to short third man. 43/1
9.6 to DPMD Jayawardene, DannyV bowls a peach here, and Mahela looks at the pitch as if it is somebody who has let him down. This is flatter, quicker, pitched outside off, just short of driving length, Mahela looks to push it into the off side, gets a thin edge as the ball turns sharply and kisses the edge on the way to de Villiers. And by the way - not that there is anything wrong with not walking - Mahela is not a walker, unlike many believe him to be. 72/3
Abhimanyu Mithun302117.0041011
19.3 to RA Jadeja, and another one bites the dust. Jadeja makes room, heaves, gets a thick edge, Kaif comes in running from sweeper-cover, shouts mine loud and clear, fending off Gayle and Vettori, and makes the catch low in front of him. 122/8

Vinay Kumar301816.00103000
3.5 to CH Gayle, and Malinga has bowled. Oops it's Vinay Kumar. What a lovely little moment, against a red-hot Gayle. Vinay goes round the stumps, and stops in his delivery stride to go round arm, slinging this full and straight, beating Gayle and taking the off stump out. 67/1
