Jean-Paul Duminy201306.5041010
Dale Steyn401624.00131000
1.3 to AM Rahane, edged and gone, caught in the slips! That was on the middle again, swinging slightly away from the bat, Rahane was looking to play it to the leg side, on the back foot but the deviation finds the outside edge of the bat and goes through to the lone slip in place, caught by Dhawan.. 8/1
18.5 to J Botha, short ball, tries to pull it away, top-edge and that has been caught well by the bowler, to his right, there was a fielder running in from mid-wicket but Steyn calmly pouches it. 118/6
Manpreet Gony402616.50102110
11.6 to R Dravid, gone, caught and that is after a wobble too! Outside the off stump, width given and he went for a slash, goes high in the air and straight to the sweeper, who managed to almost make a mess of it!. 73/4
Veer Pratap Singh403127.7584010
17.2 to AL Menaria, cut away and into the hands of the deep point fielder! Dhawan had dropped one earlier but he gets his second catch this time, it was short, wide and deserved that shot, except that it needed to be played in the gap, instead it went straight down the throat of the fielder and to everyone's relief around, it went to hand.. 108/5
19.5 to SP Goswami, full-toss, misses the outside edge and flicks the stumps on its way to the keeper, bowled!. 126/7
Amit Mishra402025.00111001
6.1 to SR Watson, bowled him! Pitched on the middle, probably drifting in and then spins away to hit the off stump, Watson's walking back after his 13-ball essay. 41/2
8.4 to STR Binny, bowled him again, and this time it is off the wrong 'un! Where was this Mishra before in the tournament? He is getting them to rip away and this one is pitched on the off stump, he went for the cut thinking it was going to turn away, instead it came in and sneaked through the defences!. 54/3

Ajit Chandila402015.00131100
12.5 to CL White, gone, caught and bowled! slower one, short of length and it has been punched back to the bowler, Chandila has a wicket!. 88/3
Shane Watson201407.0052000
Shaun Tait3.403509.54104140
Johan Botha403017.5081110
8.3 to S Dhawan, goes down the track, tries to hit it over the in-field, instead he gets a lot of elevation on that and Chandila runs around, keeps his eye on the ball and more importantly, holds on to the catch. 63/1
Siddharth Trivedi402025.00121020
11.5 to PA Reddy, slower one, on the leg side, wanted to flick it away to the leg side, gets a leading edge and it balloons up for Shah at mid-off, running back. He kept his eyes on the ball throughout and caught it well. 83/2
15.5 to CA Lynn, short ball, but it wasn't too quick, he tried to pull it away and that has gone straight down the throat of the deep fielder, do not tell me this game will turn around from here!. 102/4
Stuart Binny10818.0011000
17.6 to JP Duminy, stunning, pitched up and Duminy has lofted him and straight into the hands of the long-on fielder!. 118/5
