42nd match: Deccan Chargers v Mumbai Indians at Hyderabad (Decc), May 18, 2008
Vijaykumar to Jayasuriya, SIX, bang! Too full on leg stump, Jayasuriya moves forward and lifts the ball off his pads over deep midwicket for his 19th six of the tournament, he'll hit you there all day if you bowl that length.
Zoysa to Jayasuriya, FOUR, he's creamed that through square leg, short of a length once again and Jayasuriya moves back and across and pulls the ball hard and flat through square leg, his front foot was in the air as he
played that, what a start this is for Mumbai, if this were the Wankhede they'd be screaming "Suriya, Suriya!"
Ojha to Nayar, FOUR, nicely struck! Nayar takes a step down and lofts the ball straight over the bowler with a lovely free swing of the bat, that was like a golf swing, the ball bounces once before going over the boundary.
Venugopal Rao to Bravo, SIX, sublime! Bravo steps out of his crease, gets to the pitch of the ball and flicks it high and far over deep midwicket.
Shahid Afridi to Nayar, SIX, Nayar's slogged it and slogged it out of the ground! He got down on one knee, moved his front foot out of the way and lofted the ball high over midwicket, it didn't look well-timed at first but the ball travelled several rows back.
Bravo to Shahid Afridi, OUT, caught! What a catch by Thornely, Afridi tries to hit a six off his first ball and throws his bat at a good length ball outside off stump, he slices the ball high in the air, it's gone miles, Thornely runs backwards from around cover point, keeps his eyes fixed on the ball and takes an exceptional catch while on the run.
Fernando to Gilchrist, OUT, caught! Deccan have taken a body blow! Fernando pitches short of a length and angles the ball into the left-hander, cramping Gilchrist for room, he tries to play the upper cut over backward point but only succeeds in offering a simple catch to Pinal Shah who runs in from third man and makes no mistake.
Fernando to Sharma, OUT, Sharma's lbw! Fernando goes over the wicket and delivers a perfectly-pitched slower ball that angles into the right-hander, Sharma tries to flick but is extremely early on the shot, he's nearly completed the stroke by the time the ball reaches him, seams a touch away from the right-hander, and thuds into his pads plumb in front of middle stump.
Bravo to Venugopal Rao, OUT, Rao's gone and with it so have Decccan's slim hopes! Rao slashes at a ball that's a bit too far away from him, he slices the ball in the air over point, Shah pedals backwards and manages
to hold on to the catch although he didn't get into a very good position.
