Ashok Dinda403719.25104210
16.6 to IK Pathan, Straight to the fielder! Banged into the track at the batter on leg stump. Pathan gets into position and absolutely laces it. The only problem, though, is that he hits it straight to deep square leg, where the fielder holds onto a sharp chance. 174/3
Rayad Emrit4046011.5074310
KP Appanna3033111.0054110
9.4 to WTS Porterfield, Gone this time! Short delivery outside off stump and Porterfield could have hit that anywhere. Instead, he gets into his stroke too early and arrows it straight down O'Brien's throat at deep mid wicket. 117/1
Graeme Swann403418.50103200
10.2 to MN van Wyk, swann gets van Wyk! Flighted on a length outside off stump and the line means that van Wyk has to fetch it. He continues with his stroke but ends up toe ending it towards deep mid wicket, where the fielder does the rest. 119/2
Joginder Sharma1014014.0013000
Thisara Perera4056114.0052600
19.4 to JB Karia, gone this time! Short outside off stump and Perera is finally vindicated for his short-ball ploy. Karia looks to smash it over mid wicket but skies it terribly towards deep mid wicket, where Apanna takes a regulation catch. 210/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB 
Jesal Karia302227.3372100
6.4 to V Sehwag, soft dismissal! Length delivery outside off stump. Sehwag takes a step down the track and changes his shot, probably because he has not got to the pitch of the ball. In the end, he pops it straight back to the bowler, who accepts the offering with glee. 47/2
8.4 to CH Gayle, huge appeal and given! Flatter and fuller on off stump and this one continues with the angle. Gayle takes a step down the track but then plays all over it as the ball sneaks past the inside edge and thuds into the front pad. The bowler goes up instantly and the umpire raises her finger!. 54/5
Fidel Edwards402927.2592140
1.1 to KJ O'Brien, Knocks him over! Back of a length delivery on off stump that pitches and nips into the batter. The ball might have kept a little low too and it most definitely beat O'Brien for pace. He tried to hurriedly prod at it but by then, the ball had flattened off stump. 3/1
18.2 to RR Emrit, huge appeal and that is plumb in front! Full delivery darted into the batter on middle and off stump. Emrit shuffles across too early and cuts himself off in the end. He can't access the ball and it thuds into the pads, right in front of middle and off stump. Edwards appeals and this time, the umpire raises her finger. 150/9
Tino Best3.402917.9085000
19.4 to Yashpal Singh, cleans him up! Best gets the wicket he has been wanting all evening! And that will also be that for the Giants tonight. Searing yorker on off stump that might have tailed into the batter very late. Yashpal makes a hurried attempt to stab it away but by then, the ball has whistled past the bat and sent off stump flying. A fitting end to a dominant Kings display. 165/10
Sreesanth403639.0093200
7.2 to LMP Simmons, edged and taken sharply by van Wyk! Back of a length delivery that pitches outside off stump and jags back into the batter. Simmons has a waft at it but is late on the stroke as the ball grazes the inside edge and flies through to van Wyk, who goes down low to his left and completes a smart take. 48/3
7.5 to E Chigumbura, cleans him up! Full delivery slanted into the batter on middle and leg stump. Chigumbura picks the length a little late and is also beaten for pace as the ball breezes past the bat, richochets off the pads and smashes into the stumps. 50/4
9.3 to NLTC Perera, edged and taken this time! Length delivery slanted across the batter outside off stump. Perera looks to tonk that one into next week but loses his shape completely. He still has a swing at it and gets a feather through to the keeper, who makes no mistake. 66/6
Dinesh Salunkhe201517.5032000
10.5 to Joginder Sharma, drags it on! Tossed up on a length outside off stump. Joginder winds up and looks to smear that one over long off. But he is too early into his swing and only ends up chopping it onto leg stump. 74/7
Monty Panesar302919.6650310
13.2 to GP Swann, castled! Flighted generously on a length on middle and off stump, and Swann's eyes light up. He has a mighty slog across the line but does not get to the pitch of the ball at all. It goes past the bat and then crashes into middle stump. 96/8
