2010 IPL opener saw the first of two instances of a batsman getting out on the first ball of a season. Chaminda Vaas of DC bowled a lose delivery on the pads of KKR opener Manoj Tiwary who replied with an even more ordinary shot as he lobbed the ball to Rohit Sharma at mid-wicket, heading back to the pavilion without troubling the scorers.

Last Ball:

With 27 runs in the bank for the final over and only the tail-enders to deal with, Doug Bollinger of CSK had quite an easy job at hand.
