View dismissal WTS Porterfield* c YK Pathan b Khan 5 13 8 0 0 62.50
3.1 The captain falls. Porterfield goes for the big slash over point at a back of length delivery outside off but manages only to edge it straight to first slip 9/2
View dismissal JP Bray b Khan 0 8 7 0 0 0.00
1.6 Clatter! The stumps are all over the place. It was really full, near yorker length, and Bray played all around it. 4/1
View dismissal GC Wilson b Harbhajan Singh 19 29 23 1 0 82.60
9.4 Done in by the doosra. Too good for Wilson who played completely down the wrong alley. He didn't pick it and drove through the line. The ball went on to clean up the off stump. Harbhajan gives him his signature send off... that little bye bye sign. 48/5
View dismissal AC Botha c YK Pathan b Khan 8 3 5 1 0 160.00
3.6 And he picks up his third wicket. BOtha, who looked good in his brief stay, is gone now. He chased a length delivery outside off, not moving his feet, and flashed it to left of first slip where Yusuf takes a sharp catch. 17/3
View dismissal KJ O'Brien b Ojha 2 8 4 0 0 50.00
6.1 Ojha has picked a wicket off his first ball. Again. It skidded on around the off stump from short of length, the batsman went for the pull but got a fatal inside-edge. Gone! Nothing great about the ball but poor shot execution. 28/4
View dismissal JF Mooney c Yuvraj Singh b Ojha 19 30 22 1 0 86.36
14.4 Fatal reverse sweep. No power behind that shot. Again, Ojha had not offered any pace behind the ball and the weak reverse sweep saw the ball lob straight to short third man 72/6
View dismissal AR White c †Dhoni b Khan 29 19 25 3 1 116.00
16.2 hits short of length and gets it kick up outside off stump, White tried to cut it away but nicked it behind 92/8
View dismissal RM West run out (Raina/†Dhoni) 1 1 1 0 0 100.00
14.5 from Ojha, Poor stuff from West. It was well flighted delivery, above the eye-line, and punched towards mid-on. Raina rushes in from the deep and fires in a throw at the striker's end. The ball ricochets of Dhoni's pad and falls on the stumps. Poor stuff from the batsman, though. He was just ambling in; he didn't ground the bat but just lazily stepped in but that foot was in the air when the bails came off. 73/7

View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Bray b McCallan 14 9 13 1 0 107.69
13.4 holes out to deep square leg. McCallan cleverly slowed up the pace on this one, tossed it up, Dhoni was down the track and was early into his big swing to the on side. The ball swirled down but the fielder, who initially seemed to misjudge it, does well to lunge out to take the catch 100/2
