19.6 – Pandya to Shuvagata, out Mustafizur Run Out!! India have pulled off a heist. What scenes at the Chinnaswamy. If you are a Indian supporter that is the place to be tonight. Drama, emotions and what not. Everything running high. The fireworks are going off in the background. Nehra leaped onto Dhoni once the skipper took the stumps off. Pandya is still pumped up. Please excuse me for not describing the ball. First have to mention who is doing what. Okay, with everything coming to a calm now. Here is the wicket, short of length delivery outside off, Hom has a slash and misses, Mustafizur was haring across to the other end. A run would have meant a Super Over. Dhoni, who had already taken off one glove, gathered the ball, ran forward and took couple of stumps out. Mustafizur was well short of the crease. Mustafizur run out (Dhoni) 0(0)

19.5 – Pandya to Mahmudullah, out Caught by Ravindra Jadeja!! Wow! Mahmudullah can’t believe it. Throws his bat up in disappointment. The crowd are on their feet. Mahmudullah is relcutant to walk back. The Indians are still in it. What captaincy from Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Swapped the deep mid-wicket fielder and got his best man, Jadeja there. Any other fielder would have found it difficult. Full toss on off, Mahmudullah swings across the line and wanted to finish it with glory, gets it high on the bat and spoons towards deep mid-wicket. Jadeja covers good ground, slides and takes it with both hands. Turns towards the crowd and lets out a roar. Mahmudullah c Ravindra Jadeja b Pandya 18(22) [4s-1]

19.4 – Pandya to Rahim, out Caught by Dhawan!! Oh dear! This game doesn’t fail to amaze. Rahim has his head back and looking up towards the sky. But the good thing about that wicket is Mahmudullah on strike. Another length ball from Pandya, Rahim stayed on leg-stump and pulled, got it nowhere close to the middle and it skied to deep mid-wicket. Dhawan reverse cupped it with ease. Rahim c Dhawan b Pandya 11(6) [4s-2]
