All|Overs 1-50
4

to Amla, FOUR, drifts this across, the ball slides on to make it worse and Amla manages to tickle this to the fine leg fence

4

to Vijay, FOUR, that's a bad ball. Short and wide, Vijay doesn't even move. Should have. Manages to loft it off the toe-end and it has enough legs to swoop to the deep cover fences

4

to Vijay, FOUR, shot! Vijay, you gentle bully boy! Just a tame short of length delivery, pings off the surface quick and Vijay picks it up across the line. Just a swat and it just bounced inside the cow corner fence to rob him off a six. Mohali's big ground, you butcher!

4

to Vijay, FOUR, someone get hold of those wrists. Fullish delivery outside off, lured Vijay with a shuffle and then it was awesomeness. Brought his bat down and clubbed it through wide mid-on

4

to Amla, FOUR, slightly short, slightly turning away and Amla opened his punch to loft it between backward point and cover-point

W

to Amla, out Caught by Binny!! Save the date. Amla is out to a bouncer. He looked ready for it surprisingly. Was on the back foot, slapped a pull straightaway but didn't roll his wrists. Binny timed his hop at mid-wicket and caught it. Amla c Binny b 21(20) [4s-2]

4

to Vijay, FOUR, lovely shot. Stepped aside to make room for this length ball, opened the bat face - serenely again. What else do you use for a Monk? - and punches it behind backward point

4

to W Saha, FOUR, mediocres this with width again, Saha slices the cut and pipes it well wide of third man

6

to Vijay, SIX, wow. That's as good as it gets. Short ball splayed on top of leg-stump, Vijay rises up, rotates and picks it up with a pull over deep backward square leg. Nothing fancy wrist-roll etc. Pure class

4

Abdulla to Vjay, FOUR, that's from the refrgerator of awesomeness. Sees the loop on ths one, skps down whlst makng room and chps ths over extra cover

W

to W Saha, out Run Out!! Saha has missed one after coming down the track, and Rahul fails to collect cleanly (missed out on a stumping chance). But has he made up for it in time? Oh yes he has. But wait a minute. From the side-on replays it's clear that the ball popped out of his gloves and knocked into the grille of the helmet. But as the third umpire points out correctly, the appeal is not for a catch so the run out is STILL ON. Yes. Saha has to go. In looking for a big hit, he yorked himself. So nearly got away with it, but not to be. Rahul redeems himself. W Saha run out (Rahul) 16(13) [4s-1]

W

to D Miller, out Stumped!! is on fire here. Another stumping. He cleverly drifts this one well wide of off, and draws Miller forward and across. Miller has to lunge out for it in the end and his back foot is dragged out of the crease. The ball simply skids on, beats the outside edge and presents an easy stumping to Rahul, who makes no mistake this time. Two in two! This changes things. D Miller st Rahul b 0(1)

OT

to Vijay, 1 run, weee, look at from where he has picked that up. Length ball well wide of off, Vijay moves across and wrists it down to long-on. No idea how he managed that, but nevertheless, gets to his fifty. Now to carry on!

4

to Vijay, FOUR, he's picked his spot there, over mid-off. Looked like he decided beforehand that the ball needs to go there no matter what the length. Clears his front leg to a good length delivery and lifts it through the line. Such a true surface

4

to Vijay, FOUR, the second boundary off the over. His induction into the T20 League is certainly not going as per plan. A rough couple of games now. It might be speaking too soon though as he still has a couple of overs. Anyway, he bowls this one full on the pads and is flicked past square leg with those rubber wrists

4

Abdulla to Vjay, FOUR, not at all what Vjay ntended, but who cares. Abdulla fres ths one wder, and Vjay tres to fetch t wth a massve slog. He's nowhere near t but the resultant outsde edge zooms away past short thrd man

4

Abdulla to Vjay, FOUR, back to back boundares! Slghtly more ar on ths one but t's too full. Vjay drlls a punch straght of long-on and t smply rockets off hs bat. One bounce and over the ropes

OT

to Vijay, no run, Vijay has walked well across off to whip a full ball but hits it straight to square leg. Stoinis is already halfway down and would have been gone with a direct-hit

4

to Vijay, FOUR, he is able to find the boundary off most overs. This one shouldn't have crossed the ropes though. Not after Jordan did all the hard work by getting there with a dive, but it sneaks through. Low full toss outside off which is drilled hard by Vijay and gets to the fence

4

to Vijay, FOUR, oh stop doing this already! Too many poor balls. A rank bad long-hop on leg-stump, Vijay bends his knees and whacks it past a diving short fine leg

4

to Vijay, FOUR, what was that! This is like a candidate failing a driving test in India. Never happens. Vijay, for once, pulls out the reverse sweep. And the shortish length helps his cause. Biffs it past short third man

OT

to Vijay, 2 runs, oh that looked so good in real time. But it didn't go very far. That's because he got it off the bottom of the bat. Cleared his front leg to make room and lofted an overpitched delivery inside out over extra-cover. A brace

W

to Vijay, out Caught by Chahal!! Here's the opportunity, here's the opportunity .. and Chahal makes no mistake at deep square leg. Banged in short by , might have rolled his fingers across as it seemed to have held up on Vijay's heave. It causes him to mistime it in the air. Chahal sees it all the way and awkwardly cups it in front of his chest before tumbling down. Vijay c Chahal b 89(57) [4s-12 6s-1]

4

to Behardien, FOUR, don't look at Kohli. Just don't. He'd kill you with just a glare. Short and wide outside off, Behardien cuts it smoothly through the point region, Head gets there from deep cover and lets it through his hands. Oh dear!

4

to Stoinis, FOUR, oh yes, brilliant! Much needed boundary this as it keeps the equation in their favour. Stoinis is quickly into position for the scoop, bends across off and laps the full ball over short fine

4

to Stoinis, FOUR, full toss, full toss, and it's been put in the grave! Stoinis backs away and carves it past backward point. Skimmed off the turf

4

to Stoinis, FOUR, Stoinis keeps BLR hearts pounding. What a shot! Ventured to the leg-side as everyone in the off-side, save long off, was up in the ring. Then drills a half-volley from middle stump through the covers

6

to Stoinis, SIX, Marcus Stoinis, you freaking beast! Takes a couple of steps down the track and launches a length ball over long-off. Just about clears the ropes. Preity Zinta looks like she's having a stroke

4

Sharma to Kohli, FOUR, bit of width on offer and that is enough for Kohli to get off the mark, stays on the back foot and cuts through the cover region with ease. Finding the gap has always been easy for him

4

Sharma to Rahul, FOUR, half volley and that is a gift for Rahul, who obliges. Gets forward and caresses the drive past cover

4

Sharma to Rahul, FOUR, uppish but that will do. Some room outside off and Rahul opened the face of the bat on the punch, got it past the fielder at backward point, third man had no chance to his right

4

Sharma to Kohli, FOUR, the ball is not coming nicely onto the bat. Once again Kohli was early on the drive, took the bottom hand off the bat as he drove it on the up, the ball was in the air for a while but away from the reach of the man at cover

D

Sharma to Kohli, 1 run, what has he done? Stoinis drops Kohli. Kohli moved leg side after coming down the track and once again tried to flay the drive on the up, the ball held up a bit and came late, making the drive go in the air towards Stoinis at backward point, who could not latch onto it as he moved to his left

4

to Rahul, FOUR, this is not going to help, shortish ball down the leg-side, Rahul whips it past the keeper into the fine leg fence

4

to Rahul, FOUR, slower short ball and Rahul did not look in control of the pull shot, was in the air for a while but there was no fielder at deep mid-wicket and it raced away to the fence

6

to Rahul, SIX, steps down the track and moves leg-side to make a bit of room, throws his bat on it and times it well. The ball carried way over the sweeper cover fence

4

to Rahul, FOUR, brute followed by cuteness. Almost fetches it off the keeper's gloves, waited and waited some more before steering this delivery into the third man fence

4

to Rahul, FOUR, use of the feet straightaway against the spinner, there was no long-on in place and that helped Rahul. Uses his wrists as he lifts it over the fielder at mid-on, one bounce over the ropes

W

to Rahul, out Bowled!! Mystery spinner provides the breakthrough Punjab needed desperately. Rahul wanted to sweep it after moving across, this was a quicker seam-up delivery that eluded his shot and bowled him around his legs. Rahul b 42(25) [4s-6 6s-1]

W

to Kohli, out Caught by Vijay!! And another one! Big one. Kohli it is. has devoured Kohli. What a blow this is! Kohli took a step forward but was not quite to the pitch of the ball, went with the shot anyway and spooned to Vijay at short cover. Kohli c Vijay b 20(21) [4s-2]

W

to Watson, out Bowled!! All of a sudden Punjab are back in it and now it is the turn of Patel to get on the wickets chart. Short slow ball on the stumps, did not rise much as Watson wanted to pull it, was too early on the shot. The ball crashes into middle and leg. With that the players will take a time-out as well. Watson b 1(3)

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, cannot give so much width to AB. He will smash that all day. Camped on the back foot and clobbered it through covers

4

to Sachin Baby, FOUR, touch short and Sachin Baby is so good with that slog sweep. At least seems so. Drops to one knee and picks the gap at mid-wicket, timed the shot to perfection and gets the desired result

6

Sharma to de Villiers, SIX, that's a AB classic! Sinks on one knee and takes the slower one on the full to lap-slap it over the fine leg fence. All the way for a maximum. Brings up the 50-run stand too

4

Sharma to de Villiers, FOUR, backs away early and smashes this through extra cover, AB is unleashing. Watchout fellas!

OT

Sharma to de Villiers, 2 runs, another slower one that refuses to rise, bowled at 108ks. AB had to wait for an eternity, ends up chopping it through mid-off. Behardien swoops in and sends a laser-like throw at the bowler's end. Had that hit Sachin Baby would have been a goner

4

Sharma to de Villiers, FOUR, the slower short one outside off, doesn't intimidate AB who backs away and slaps it straight down the ground. Clean hit!

4

Sharma to de Villiers, FOUR, another AB special. Fifty for him, gets down quickly and takes the slower one on the half-volley and scoops it behind square. Rocketed away to the fence!

6

Sharma to de Villiers, SIX, and what does AB do? He backs away a long, long way...is waiting for the slower one to arrive and when it does, he smack-bangs the scoop over the fine leg fence. Coming to the delivery: Sharma came in from round the wicket and bowled a full toss. Read that again, a full toss to AB

4

Sharma to de Villiers, FOUR, full toss again, this time from over the wicket though, doesn't matter as AB spanks it wide of long-off

W

Sharma to de Villiers, out Caught by Cariappa!! Gone! PUN can breathe a sigh of relief now. Was a yorker outside off and AB was looking to dab it over short third man. Took it on the half-volley and opened his bat face late, but erred in timing. Off the toe-end and spoons a simple catch to Cariappa who accepts it gleefully. de Villiers c Cariappa b Sharma 64(35) [4s-5 6s-2]

4

Sharma to Head, FOUR, kept it full and straight but Head was up for it. Lets the ball dip and swats it straight down the ground

W

Sharma to Head, out Caught by Vijay!! Brilliant catch from the skipper! Kept his eyes on the ball, ran all around it and managed to clasp it with both hands. It was full and wide, Head went for the loft and skied it into orbit. Vijay from cover, ran back and ensured he didn't lose sight of the ball. Took it over his right shoulder. Head c Vijay b Sharma 11(7) [4s-1]

W

Sharma to Sachin Baby, out Sachin Baby Run Out!! 1 run completed. And there's a wicket off the last ball too! Sachin Baby slams this slower full ball to long-on and calls for two. Binny responds but Miller was too quick to get to the ball, sends in a flat throw to Saha who catches Baby short. Wasn't even in the frame. Sachin Baby run out (D Miller/W Saha) 33(29) [4s-1]
