W

Russell to Stoinis, out Cught by Chwl!! This is not how you chse trget - losing wicket on the 4th delivery of the innings. Nothing shot from Stoinis. Length delivery round off, he threw his bt t it, hd no timing behind it. The bll spooned towrds Piyush Chwl t mid-off, who ccepted the gift gleefully. Stoinis c Chwl b Russell 0(3)

4

orkel to Vijay, FOUR, it's sheer luck that has fetched Vijay a four here. Back of a length delivery angled into hi, he ade a bit of roo and then tried to flog it over deep id-wicket, got a thick top edge that flew over short fine leg, one bounce and over the ropes

4

Russell to Vijy, byes, FOUR, cross sem delivery nd wht is Vijy doing? Throwing his bt wildly, does not connect nd it bet the keeper into the fence

W

Russell to Vohr, out Cught by Shkib!! No, no this is not how Leicester won the EPL. They were sensible throughout the seson, not wild like Vohr this time. Short delivery nd he lifted it, in fct just chipped the whip towrds deep bckwrd squre leg. Did not ccount for the fielder there, who did not hve to move n inch. Retchingly ugly this from Vohr, purely becuse he hd no gme wreness this time. Vohr c Shkib b Russell 0(5)

W

orkel to Vijay, out Caught by Shakib!! If the previous one was ugly, I do not have words for this. Ever since Vijay cae, he looked in a bit of hurry. The kind of hurry openers show when they do not have faith in the iddle order. Tries to loft this length delivery over the off-side, the bounce was a bit ore and all Vijay could do was istie it for an easy catch to id-off. Punjab are three down in no tie. Vijay c Shakib b orkel 6(11) [4s-1]

4

Yadav to W Saha, FOR, room comes to Saha's resce, always easy to flay shots when the ball is away from the body. Short and wide and Saha cts it throgh point

4

Yadav to W Saha, FOR, mistimes the loft on this length delivery. Bt thanks to powerplay restrictions, it flies over Rssell at mid-off

4

orkel to axwell, FOUR, that is axwell for you. He creates shots. Nothing bad with the delivery, gets across and clips it past short fine leg

4

orkel to axwell, FOUR, buper down the leg-side, axwell oves across the line and helps the pull over Hogg at short fine leg

4

to W Saha, FOUR, the legbreak from , Saha drives sans any feet movement and squirts it off a thick outside edge past a diving short third man. 50 up for PUN

W

to W Saha, out Bowled!! Dragged on! The legspinner from . Slightly fuller and wide of off, Saha sinks to one knee and looks to fetch the sweep, ends up dragging it off the toe and clattering the stumps. The stumps are in a mess and Saha ain't looking back. W Saha b 24(20) [4s-3]

6

Hogg to Maxwell, SIX, that's cleanly struck! Maxwell rings his ottom hand into play as he lofts one handsomely over extra cover. Orthodox stuff!

6

to Maxwell, SIX, whoa! Mistimed and six. That's Maxi for you. Goes hard on this quicker one and didn't time the biff. Went miles up in the air and beats Russell's leap at long-off

4

to Maxwell, FOUR, reverse lap and that's timed to perfection! Maxwell gets into position early and directs it well over of short third man. He adjusted well as fired it in, waited and helped it along the way

6

Hogg to Maxwell, SIX, is it Maxi's day tonight? He is taking on the wily old fox. Flighted just outside off, Maxwell whips powerfully and that's gone all the way into the mid-wicket stands

4

Hogg to Maxwell, FOUR, through for a oundary! Maxwell flicks this full delivery and Manish at wide long-on overruns and the lets the all slip through his hands

4

Hogg to Maxwell, FOUR, make that 14 off 3 alls. Asolute carnage from the ig Show. ludgeons this loopy delivery straight down the ground, one ounce and over the ropes!

OT

Hogg to Maxwell, 1 run, fifty for Maxi! He needed this adly, didn't he? Just a raise of the at as he nudges one through mid-wicket

OT

Yadav to Maxwell, 2 rns, makes room and gets ample width to slap one throgh extra cover. thappa gets a bad bonce bt cold have perhaps snaffled it. Misses and allows a overthrow and an extra rn

4

Yadav to Maxwell, FOR, that's a gift and Maxi accepts it gleeflly. Short and begging to be hit. Down leg, Maxwell swivels and smacks the pll throgh short fine. Go fetch that!

6

to Maxwell, SIX, he's doing it for PUN. Maxwell shapes up for a big one, gets into position early - On one knee and depositing the tossed up delivery into the cow corner orbit

W

to Maxwell, out Lbw!! "It's the slow raising finger" - Richie Benaud-esque. Maxwell has been quite itchy in the last 2 overs and now he perishes trying a fancy shot. Looks to reverse sweep the googly and gets nowhere near it. It landed on a length and rapped him in front of middle and off. screams his throat out and so does Robbie. The umpire waits, waits, ......waits for an eternity and then brings the edge index finger into play. Good grief! Maxwell lbw b 68(42) [4s-6 6s-4]

4

to Gurkeerat Singh, FOUR, is that a six? Looks like it has landed on the full. The TV umpire is having a look at the replays and passes the verdict to the onfield ump. It's a only a boundary. Coming to the delivery: Full toss on the stumps, Gurkeerat Singh bashes it straight down the ground, landed just inches inside the rope

W

Russell to D Miller, out Cught by (sub)Sthish!! Is this the gme for KOL? I definitely think so. But look t those figures from ndre Russell. 3/3 - Unbelievble stuff. Dipping full toss just outside off, Miller thumps it stright down the throt of long-on. Miller wsn't hppy - Thought it ws no bll for height but must sy, its fir cll from the TV ump. D Miller c (sub)Sthish b Russell 13(18)

6

Russell to xr, SIX, nd xr doesn't need ny sighters! Just stys still nd smites this fullish delivery over the wide long-on fence

6

Russell to xr, SIX, nd he does it gin! Struck powerfully nd off the met, timed sweetly. When you bowl length t this stge, you cnnot get wy... clen hit in the sme re

4

orkel to Axar, FOUR, 16 off 3. Axar is turning it on here. Uses the length and width to rap this deftly over short third an. Short, wide, punished...

W

Russell to Gurkeert Singh, out xr Run Out!! Kolkt go berserk! Russell is on fire. s Mel Jones exclims on ir: "You cnnot keep him out of the gme." It ws low full toss, driven stright bck to the bowler. Russell fields in his followthrough, sees xr bcking long wy nd flings the bll ir-borne. M--G-I-C--L stuff. The stumps re shttered nd so re PUN's hopes? xr run out ( Russell) 21(7) [4s-1 6s-2]

W

Russell to Gurkeert Singh, out Gurkeert Singh Run Out!! 1 run completed. nd the kmikze continues. Gurkeert Singh hs hit tht lright. Lofted one to the right of long-off nd there ws never two there. Sthish sends in n ccurte throw to Robbie who does the bil-whipping job. It ws spectculr throw to be honest. Tke bow Sthish! Gurkeert Singh run out (Sthish/Uthpp) 11(11) [4s-1]

W

Russell to Swpnil Singh, out Lbw!! Russell hs his hnds loft nd Gmbhir is seen punching fists with someone in the dug out. This is some serious stuff from Russell - SRK is up on his feet, ppluding the mzing stuff from the West Indin. Hurled full trgeting middle nd leg. Swpnil Singh wlks cross nd slogs cross the line. Misses nd the "slow rising finger" is up...Swpnil Singh lbw b Russell 0(1)

4

Sharma to Gambhir, FOUR, he's very strong square on the off-side. Jumps back into the crease upon seeing the shortish length and plants an open-bat face to punch it through the point region. Skims away..

4

Sharma to Gambhir, FOUR, look at how he just clears his front leg to allow an unhindered flow of the bat. Fullish outside off, and right down Gauti's alley. Punches it emphatically through extra-cover

OT

to Uthappa, 1 run, softly drops a ball in front of Maxi at backward point and judges the single well. The throw is a powerful one but off target. Replays from the side show that Uthappa wasn't in his crease when the ball passed the stumps, but that's more down to the fact that Uthappa knew where it was going and then had to take slight evasive action. Mid-wicket tries to backup but it bursts through him. Luckily, there's a long-on in place

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, that's been whipped off the hips witheringly. Like my co-commentator Abhishek likes to call, the Nataraja shot. Flogs it past short fine leg

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, short ball but it's very poorly directed. Doesn't climb up much high, and Gambhir pulls it off his right shoulder over short fine. KOL are building momentum

4

Sharma to Uthappa, FOUR, sweet as! This is Robbie at his most imperious. It's on a good length, nothing wrong with it at all and it's been skinned past backward point with a sublime punch

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, that's rocketed off Gambhir's turbulent willow. Saw the overpitched delivery and came down ever so hard. Biffs it straight of mid-on and it reaches the fence in no time

4

Singh to Uthappa, FOUR, grounds his back knee and nails the slog sweep wide of long-on. Got it on an ideal length and walloped it..

6

to Uthappa, SIX, wingardium leviosa! Now if you don't understand that, I'm sorry I can't help. Me and my Harry Potter things! Anyway, getting back to cricket, Robbie steps down, gets close to the ball and levitates it over long-off

6

Singh to Gambhir, SIX, hallelujah! This is a holy gift. High full toss on middle and Gambhir swings it over the square leg fence

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, oh jeez, some mind numbing garbage lately from the bowlers. tries a dipping slow full toss, but dishes it on the pads. Uthappa can't be more thankful. Flogs it behind square

4

to Uthappa, FOUR, this time he goes with the turn. Flatter trajectory this time and it's been heaved over mid-wicket with a clean swish

4

to Gambhir, FOUR, oh supremely engineered. Goes back in the crease to a shortish ball outside off, and then deliberately slices it past backward point to bring up fifty. The skipper keeps churning them up

OT

to Gambhir, 1 run, looked to drive with the turn, but had slid this through. Catches a thick inside edge and the ball wanders through mid-wicket

W

Sharma to Uthappa, out Gambhir Run Out!! Should Punjab really be celebrating this wicket? It is like light infantry making way for a heavy battalion. Sharma came over the wicket and kept it on a length outside off, Uthappa drove towards Maxwell at extra cover. Gambhir was backing a long way. Maxwell took his time and threw at the bowler's end, the throw deflected off the bowler's hand onto the stumps. Easy one for the third umpire as Gauti was long way out of his crease. Gambhir run out (Maxwell/ Sharma) 54(45) [4s-6 6s-1]

4

Sharma to Uthappa, FOUR, what a shot to bring his fifty. Cracks a full toss over extra cover and fetches a four

6

Singh to Uthappa, SIX, flatter than a pancake! Grounds his back knee and slogs this one wide of long-on, the ball just carried over the fence

4

Singh to Uthappa, FOUR, the bowler had to drop his length and Uthappa has made use of that. Rocked back and pierced the gap between the deep mid-wicket and long-on with this pull

6

Sharma to Y Pathan, SIX, fullish ball and to Pathan's liking. He swings across and dispatches it over the deep backward square leg fence

W

Sharma to Y Pathan, out Uthappa Run Out!! What was Uthappa thinking? It was right on the pitch and Sharma had the momentum of his followthrough with him. He was always going to reach this drop from Pathan earlier than Uthappa. Has to depart. Slower ball it was and Pathan swung, missed and got hit on the abdomen, the ball just dropped and Uthappa set off. Pathan did not oblige, it was too late before he could hear the call. Sharma had all three to aim at the bowler's end and he broke them with ease. Uthappa run out ( Sharma) 70(49) [4s-6 6s-2]

4

Sharma to A Russell, FOUR, Sharma went round the wicket and angled it across Russell. The ploy worked a bit but for the third man inside the ring, the thick edge flies over the fielder there

6

Sharma to A Russell, SIX, missed it by a whisker and that is all Russell wanted. Thumps the full toss well over the long-on fence, did not look like a well-timed hit though

W

Sharma to A Russell, out A Russell Run Out!! What a finish to the innings for Punjab. Bowled this slower delivery down the leg seeing Russell make room, he got a faint tickle of the pad to the keeper. Wanted to sneak in an extra run but the keeper threw in time to , who outran Russell at the bowler's end. Talk about the shift of momentum. A Russell run out (W Saha/ Sharma) 16(10) [4s-1 6s-1]
