OUT! Against the run of play, Jadeja has dismissed Pooran.

The keeper just tosses the ball up in celebration, Jadeja turns back to put in a formal appeal and then Pooran is seen walking back.

15.2Tahir to Pooran

4B
FOUR BYES! That has beaten everyone. Fired in really full on off, Pooran looks to drive but fails to put bat on ball. Dhoni misses the ball too and the ball goes to the rope for four byes.

14.1Jadeja to Pooran

6
SIX! Humongous! A flatter one on middle and leg, Pooran lifts the ball clean as a whistle over wide long on. The fielders are mere spectators. Brilliant shot.

13.6Bravo to Singh

2
A low dipping full toss on middle, it's clipped down to wide long on for a couple of runs. The throw comes from the deep, Bravo tries to collect it and collides with Pooran. No harm done. 12 from the over, 33 needed off 36 balls.

Dropped by Vijay (sub)! Bravo delivers it full and outside off, Pooran drives it in the air towards point where Vijay puts down a sitter.

13.2Bravo to Pooran

4
Four running runs! Bravo pitches it up and outside off, Pooran drives it through extra cover and Jadeja chases it down from long off. He fires in the throw at the bowler's end, misses the target and it races towards the fence. Jadhav does well to pull it back but is holding his left shoulder. Not looking good, he is heading off the field. Four runs in total added to the total.

13.1Bravo to Singh

A low full toss down the leg side, it's helped to fine leg for a run.

12.7Singh to Pooran

SIX! That ends up deep in the stands. A flatter one on middle, Pooran rocks back and pulls this one. That ball keeps travelling. Ends up in the crowd somewhere. Harbhajan ends with figures of 4-0-57-3 but only 16 runs came off his last two overs along with all the wickets.

12.6Singh to Pooran

12.3Singh to Singh

12.2Singh to Agarwal

W
OUT! Harbhajan has his third! A poor delivery to get a wicket though. A short one on middle and leg, Agarwal looks to pull it away but finds deep backward square leg to perfection. Jadeja out there takes the catch with his safe pair of hands and Punjab are losing their way slightly here. What a comeback from Bhajji though, he had 0/41 off his first 2 and now has 3/49.
