Praveen Kumar1004244.20364011
0.1 to AM Rahane, what a start! a big inswinger first up, knocks back the off stump....that surprised everyone. It was quick and fast, Rahane was in no position to play it.. 0/1
6.2 to V Sehwag, Praveen Kumar strikes again for India Red...the big wicket of Sehwag, it was struck well on the back foot but played it in the air, Badrinath at cover dives forward and takes a good low catch.. 23/2
6.3 to KD Karthik, two in two for Praveen Kumar...picks up his third wicket...It was on a good length and coming in...Karthik plays around it and misses it (trying to work it to the onside) strikes the pad in line, loud shout for an lbw, given by the umpire.. 23/3
46.4 to RR Powar, walks across the stumps and then tries to sweep, misses it......strikes the pad in line with the stumps.....loud appeal, given by the umpire. Praveen Kumar picks up his fourth wicket.. 236/8
Ishant Sharma9.314314.52354011
49.3 to RR Bose, middle stump knocked back......Ishant Sharma pitches on a length and bowls it straight....Bose moves back and fails to get his bat down in time.. 246/10
Siddharth Trivedi1035235.20346020
11.4 to SA Asnodkar, a loose shot from was wide outside the off stump...driven on the up with no timing to mid off where Ishant Sharma moves a few feet to his left and takes the catch. Trivedi picks up his first wicket.. 41/4
38.4 to Joginder Sharma, short ball and Joginder mishits the pull high in the air to short fine leg, Praveen Kumar judges it well and takes the catch.. 177/6
42.2 to SK Raina, Raina goes after a wonderful knock. It was short and Raina pulls in the air to deep midwicket....Kohli running in from the deep, dives forward and pulls off a great catch inches off the ground. Excellent effort that.. 202/7
Shrikant Mundhe824315.37276030
47.1 to VY Mahesh, walks across and gets hit on the pad in line with the stumps.....loud appeal and given.. 237/9
Pragyan Ojha1005015.00322200
28.4 to NK Patel, caught at midwicket. A poor shot selection from Neeraj Patel as he comes down the track and mishits it to kaif at midwicket (was looking to go over the fielder positioned there). A good partnership comes to an end.. 128/5

Ranadeb Bose8.113414.16364040
10.5 to RS Ricky, rush of blood sends Ricky back inside! Failing to time the ball all innings, he gets frustrated and charges down the track, hitting a good length delivery straight into Sehwag's lap at mid-off ... simple catch and the Blues have two quick wickets. 35/2
Joginder Sharma1013033.00432011
18.3 to M Kaif, oh thats a snorter from Asnodkar! Joginder bowls it short outside off and Kaif latches onto a pull, but Asnodkar times his dive at midwicket brilliantly and intercepts to get rid of a well-set Kaif! The Reds captain departs for 42 from 59 balls. 70/3
47.2 to M Rawat, Jogiya khalli balli! Rawat gets too adventurous, walking too far across his stumps in an attempt to scoop over fine leg, but ends up flicking the ball onto his stumps! He was trying to be cheeky, but as Pakistan's Misbah-ul-Haq learnt in the Twenty20 final, you cant do that against Jogi! India Red seven down now. 221/7
47.6 to SK Trivedi, cleaned up! Joginder bowls it on a length and Trivedi charges down, heaving widly across the line, missing the ball totally and his off stump gets pegged back!. 223/8
Yo Mahesh8.505806.56227030
Amit Mishra1004024.00290001
25.6 to V Kohli, bowled 'em! Mishra fizzes up the googly, which pitches marginally outside the line and sneaks back between a clueless Kohli's gap to knock back off stump! Kohli didnt read that ball at all. 105/4
37.3 to S Badrinath, its the googly again! Second time tonight, Mishra outfoxes the batsman with a well-disguised delivery, which pitches and goes the other way, beating Badri as he shuffles and makes room. 153/5
Ramesh Powar703304.71223000
Niraj Patel10606.0031000
Virender Sehwag503216.4080110
46.2 to P Kumar, but not this time! Sehwag bowls it quicker and flatter, Praveen is hurried into his attempted pull and the ball bobs up over the infield to long-on, where Raina keeps his eyes on it and takes it safely inside the ropes!. 215/6
