4

Sharma to Ishan Kishan, FOUR, swinging into the pads, no real threat, Ishan Kishan puts it away with a flick of the wrists. No-one at fine leg

4

Sharma to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, leg-side dross. Smith won't spare. He clips it behind square, so far that the man at deep square couldn't reach

4

Sharma to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, slower half-volley outside off, Smith gets to the pitch of it and thrashes it away between mid-off and extra cover. Simple

4

Sharma to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, trying too much? I guess so. Looks for swing again, there's none. Sat up from a short length, Smith punches sweetly through the covers. Save your legs!

4

to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, shortens the length and takes the pace off, Smith had the width to free his arms and he delays the cut shot, that helped him place in the gap on the off-side ring

4

to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, looks to tuck a length ball in the air over mid-wicket, gets a thick leading edge which lobs up and rolls towards third man. Sandeep Sharma tried his best, but he ended up parrying the ball into the boundary boards

4

Sharma to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, too full, Smith bludgeons it back over the bowler's head. There's no stopping that

4

Sharma to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, right where Smith likes it. Wide of off-stump, he uses his wrist power to smash a drive wide of extra cover. High elbow and all that...

OT

Sharma to Ishan Kishan, 1 run, pokes the ball into the off-side to bring up the 50-run opening stand

4

Sharma to Dwayne Smith, FOUR, they are just feeding to his strengths. Full ball on the pads, Smith picks it up and kills it over mid-wicket

D

Sharma to Dwayne Smith, 1 run. David Miller drops a dolly. It hung in the air for an eternity, Smith cursed himself and almost started walking to the pavilion, but luck seemed to have smiled on him. Smith looks to go straight with a loft, doesn't locate the middle. It goes up in the air towards mid-off, Miller comes in sets himself and looks to take it reverse cupped, it just doesn't stick. Hits him on the side of the palm and drops to the ground

6

to Dwayne Smith, SIX, fifty for Dwayne Smith. Dwayne Smith gets a fuller ball this time. Something that was missing so far in this over. Clubs it straight over 's head. Goes a long way

4

to Ishan Kishan, FOUR, nothing seems to be working. Starts with a short ball, Ishan Kishan camps back and pulls through mid-wicket

4

to Ishan Kishan, FOUR, how good a shot that is. Look at the placement. Ishan Kishan charges on the front foot, sees the length and shapes back, cuts and beats the man at point and then sweeper who ran to his right

D

to Dwayne Smith, 1 run, Dwayne Smith drank elixir today! Gets another life. Short ball and he pulls it to long-on, who dives forward but fails to get underneath the ball. Got hands to it so will go down as a chance

6

to Dwayne Smith, SIX, just about clears the man at long-on. An almost tossed up ball. Dwayne Smith goes with the swing and muscles it over the fence

W

Naarajan o Ishan Kishan, ou Caugh by (sub)Miller!! Finally he cach has been aken. Ishan Kishan goes for he heave again, was on he move a bi and hence no ransfer of weigh o impar enough power on he sho. Ends up hiing i low owards he man parolling he fence a mid-wicke. Was a slower ball and ha migh have made hings a ouch differen for he youngser. Ishan Kishan c (sub)Miller b Naarajan 29(24) [4s-3]

6

Naarajan o Dwayne Smih, SIX, anyhing up and he decimaes i. Fuller ball on he middle and leg. Dwayne Smih keeps he willow sraigh and beas a leaping long-on

4

Naarajan o Raina, FOUR, full oss on legs. Raina helps i o he deep backward square leg fence. Horrible ball, overheard in he comm room

4

to Raina, FOUR, Raina makes room, gets followed by a short ball but does not flinch. Goes with the pull - tennis-like heave - and sends it to the deep mid-wicket fence on the bounce

4

to Raina, FOUR, and gets this one fine. Shuffled across to a short ball and tucked in the air, but fine leg was not in the ring. Managed to fetch a four in the end

6

to Dwayne Smith, SIX, the captain did not listen to what the keeper had to say a couple of overs ago. Yes, he pitches it up and then sees himself get muscled over the fence, straight down the ground

W

to Dwayne Smith, out Caught by Guptill!! Drags the length and gets rewarded. Dwayne Smith goes for the slog on this flatter ball, fails to generate enough momentum. Finds one of the tallest members on field stationed at deep mid-wicket boundary. Dwayne Smith c Guptill b 74(39) [4s-8 6s-4]

4

Naarajan o Raina, FOUR, seps down does Raina his ime. Naarajan wans o ou-hink him wih a slower shor ball. Fails. Raina cus him o he deep poin fence

6

Sharma to Raina, SIX, blame the willow, if you are a bowling fan. Or call it a beautiful display of timing, if you support the batters. A gentle chip on this shortish ball where Raina looked deceived for a while. But manages to clear the long-on fence

D

to Raina, 2 runs, that kind of a day it has been for Punjab. Gurkeerat misjudges this mistimed loft from Raina. Goes back, comes forward but is late by then, fails to get underneath the ball despite the dive from long-off. Got fingers to that, so will go down as a drop chance

W

Sharma to Raina, out Caught by Gurkeerat Singh!! Mann is the man for Punjab, finally. Takes one at deep mid-wicket. Raina went for the glory shot, the bat turned in his hand as he attemped the swing on this fuller ball. Skied it high and Mann, who was not having a great day before this catch of course, manages to reverse-cup it. Relieved, that was the look on his face. Raina c Gurkeerat Singh b Sharma 39(25) [4s-4 6s-1]

W

Sharma to Finch, out Caught by Saha!! is behind what happened earlier in the day and he is trying his best to change things on his own. Short ball that kicked off and beat the pull of Finch, took the top edge en route to the keeper. Two wickets in the over and Punjab might feel resurrected after this. Finch c Saha b Sharma 2(2)

6

to Karthik, SIX, had it gone a few inches higher, it would have gone past the reach of earth's gravity. Short ball and Karthik gets late on the pull, top edges it over the keeper's head. Goes deep into the stands as well

4

to Karthik, FOUR, don't look at Maxi. Short and slow outside off. Karthik cuts past backward point and releases the pressure

4

Naarajan o Karhik, FOUR, slower ball and Karhik lofs over exra cover. No one in he deep and i jus abou rickles down o he fence. All over. GUJ win by 6 wickes

W

to Guptill, out Caught by Basil Thampi!! This was coming. The approach to the pitch when he came out to bat wasn't that positive. He got a friendly ball on the pads first up, only managed to flick it behind square without power, then mistimed a hat-trick of balls before this one and has got him with a bumper. Guptill wasn't expecting this from the pacer. Was looking to come forward, surprised by the bouncer, tries to pull off the back foot, has a man at deep mid-wicket precisely for the top-edge and the man in the deep made no mistake as it came off the outside half of the bat. Guptill c Basil Thampi b 2(5)

4

to Amla, FOUR, that's class for you. The off-side is packed and Amla nonchalantly walks across the stumps, tempts the bowler to bowl at the stumps, delivers a slower ball, Amla had ample time to flick along the ground, made sure he placed it well wide of deep square leg

4

to Amla, FOUR, this time he clears the off-side field. Slower delivery outside off stump, Amla leans forward, delays his punch and hits it along the ground through cover

D

Thampi to Amla, 1 run, dropped. Jaddu it is! Went to his right - not his natural side. Got both hands to it and he's livid with himself for putting it down. Short of a length delivery outside off stump, Amla punches it uppishly, hit very well, backward point flew to his right, there was a dive but the ball popped out

4

Thampi to Amla, FOUR, now that is a top shot! The change of pace, but Amla has great eyes. Picked that from the bowler's hand, delayed his shot, opened up the front leg and used his wrists so well to lift it inside-out over cover

6

to Amla, SIX, Amla welcomes with a lovely off-driven six. Length delivery just outside off stump, Amla waits and lofts it easily over the top. was surprised how Amla managed to time it so well despite there being no wild swing of the bat

4

to Amla, FOUR, that is pure wrist power. This was the slower ball, but it went too full, meaning that the batsman had a bit of extra time to react, Amla flicked nicely along the ground through mid-wicket

4

to Shaun Marsh, FOUR, and again. As soon as Marsh comes on strike, forgets words like "flight, air-time, tossing." MS Dhoni has to be behind the stumps to give him advice when he is under pressure. This is a big outfield and maybe he need not be afraid to toss a ball up. It's flat, quick, short, Marsh pulls it nicely past the deep mid-wicket fielder

4

Soni to Shaun Marsh, FOUR, it's a full toss, the idea was there to give the ball a bit more air, but the execution wasn't great. Marsh doesn't try to over-hit the ball, places the flick between long-on and deep mid-wicket

4

to Shaun Marsh, FOUR, continues to bowl quick, errs in line once again. Down the leg-side, Marsh glances it fine past the man at 45

4

to Shaun Marsh, FOUR, full and down the leg-side, Marsh easily glances it past short fine leg, Ishan Kishan runs to his left in the deep and dives but the ball wins the race

4

to Shaun Marsh, FOUR, 112kph slower ball, but you can't offer width with both backward point and third man inside the ring. Marsh delays the late cut and guides it nicely between the two fielders

OT

Soni to Amla, 1 run, fifty for Hash. The century stand is raised as well. Flighted delivery on the stumps, Amla mistimes the lofted on-drive to long-on. This has been a fine innings from the South African batsman. It's been a good mix of aggressive hits with gentle nudges

6

Soni to Amla, SIX, this time he connects well. Flighted delivery outside off stump, not as wide as the previous one. Amla goes straight down the ground and clears the fence

OT

Kulkarni to Shaun Marsh, 1 run, slower elivery outsie off stump, Marsh pushes it towars point an raises his bat for a fifty. Another sensible innings from the Aussie

4

Thampi to Shaun Marsh, FOUR, that's Marsh's strength. He is so good with the cut shots. Just can't keep him calm by bowling it wide of off, plants his back foot deep and thumps it away past backward point

W

Kulkarni to Shaun Marsh, out Caught by Finch!! High into the night sky an straight into the bucket hans of Finch at long-on. Perfect length from Kulkarni, in't let Marsh plan his swing, just hel it back a touch an ensure he messe up the timing. Marsh lofte it straight, no istance, regulation catch. Shaun Marsh c Finch b Kulkarni 58(43) [4s-6]

6

Kulkarni to Amla, SIX, on't worry about this one though. Amla is nailing it off the mile, backs away a touch an fires a full ball over long-on. Got complete hol of it an his bat swing took care of the rest

6

Thampi to Amla, SIX, Amla knows what's coming. A slower delivery, he transfers all his weight onto the back foot and bullies the ball over cow-corner. All power!

4

Thampi to Amla, FOUR, oh Amla! You bewdy! He was shaping up to scoop over the keeper, on seeing the yorker dip he stays still and slaps it off the face over short third, all wrists you know. He might have borrowed VVS' wrists. Seriously! Never seen someone scoring so many runs at ease with pure wristwork

4

Thampi to Amla, FOUR, width on offer, Amla charges himself for another flay, goes deep and carves it away over point

4

to Amla, FOUR, low full toss, straight at the stumps, Amla lifts it barrel straight, no-one's stopping that!

6

to Maxwell, SIX, short and in the swinging arc, Maxwell loads up and hacks it away over deep mid-wicket

6

to Maxwell, SIX, mishit? Who cares? It has gone for a six. Maxi, you beast! What power! He looked to have mistimed this full delivery, went for the loft, but the only thing that could have taken that over the long-on fence is his power

4

Thampi to Amla, FOUR, low full toss and Amla smashes it away over extra cover. Just a hit away now

6

Thampi to Amla, SIX, second hundred this season, mighty Hash has done it on the big stage! Gets a handshake and a hug from his skipper. Cross-seam full delivery wide of off, Amla goes inside-out over extra cover. Crunnnnched off the meat

W

Thampi to Amla, out Lbw!! Some respite, finally. A yorker that tails in a bit around middle and leg, Amla with his back leg deep inside, looking to swing over mid-wicket. Misses due to the dip and is caught plumb in front. Raina walks up to him to congratulate what has been a tremendous ton from one of the modern greats. Amla lbw b Thampi 104(60) [4s-8 6s-5]
