Najeeb Amar to Gambhir, OUT, that's all over for Gambhir, he's danced down the ground but the bowler fired that into the pads, lofted that high towards square leg but that doesn't have the timing, Lamsan comes around and picks off a clean take, that was a soft dismissal and a big boost for Hong Kong

G Gambhir c Lamsam b Najeeb Amar 51 (75m 54b 7x4 0x6) SR: 94.44

India 136/2   RG Sharma 3* (13b)   Najeeb Amar 5.3-0-30-2

24.6

Najeeb Amar to Dhoni, OUT, And Rohit is run out. Dhoni was squared up but managed to push it to cover point. For some reason, Rohit had charged across, perhaps he wanted his captain to retain the strike, and couldn't get back in time to beat the direct hit

RG Sharma run out 11 (37m 29b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.93

India 159/3   MS Dhoni 15* (23b 2x4)   Najeeb Amar 9-0-37-2
