With the Deccan Chargers reeling at 45 for 3, they were looking to their most expensive signing, Andrew Symonds, to drag them out of trouble. However, Farveez Maharoof had him snicking to the keeper for a mere 12.
Rohit's rescue act
After the big guns of the Deccan batting order - Adam Gilchrist, Andrew Symonds and Shahid Afridi - had flopped, Rohit Sharma bailed them out with a dazzling display. He plundered 26 off one Maharoof over to lift Deccan to a competitive score.
A costly drop
With a small total to defend, Deccan needed to get rid of the dangerous Virender Sehwag early. But Pragyan Ojha dropped him on the boundary in the third over and Sehwag went on to play a match-winning knock.
