  India innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal G Gambhir c Hopes b Bracken 9 9 6 1 0 150.00
1.4 and now a soft dismissal, the ball landing outside off and Gambhir hardly gets any bat on a tame would-be-lofted drive to mid-off where Hopes takes an easy catch 12/2
View dismissal V Sehwag run out (Clarke) 0 5 3 0 0 0.00
0.5 from Lee, Sehwag's run-out at the non-striker's end, dropping down his hands, Clarke stopping the ball well at point with a dive to the left and a direct hit shudders down the stumps. Sehwag crashes his bat into the ground as he walks off, furious 5/1
View dismissal KD Karthik b Lee 8 9 8 1 0 100.00
2.6 booming low full toss, Karthik plays all around it and he just didn't see it, the ball skittles the sticks 20/3
View dismissal RV Uthappa c DJ Hussey b Bracken 1 7 3 0 0 33.33
3.2 slower ball, a touch of loop in at the right hander who waits for the ball to cross him and then drives uppishly to mid-off where David Hussey gets on the international scoresheet for the first time 20/4
View dismissal RG Sharma b Hopes 8 15 8 1 0 100.00
6.4 Hopes strikes with his fourth ball! The ball comes in on a good length on off, Sharma shapes to swivel a pull round, misses, and his off stump is clipped 32/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Lee b DJ Hussey 9 30 27 0 0 33.33
11.4 swivels in on middle, a touch short, and that's Hussey's first wicket as Dhoni stands tall and swats a pull to deep midwicket which doesn't quite have the legs 49/6
View dismissal IK Pathan c †Gilchrist b Bracken 26 41 30 0 0 86.66
17.3 He's gone this time, stepping back, exposing his stumps, and trying to crack a back-foot cut off one which nipped in, Gilchrist taking the edge 74/10
View dismissal P Kumar c Voges b Noffke 6 8 10 0 0 60.00
14.1 outside off, plenty of room, driven hard but aerially to a wideish long-off 60/7
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c Clarke b Voges 1 5 3 0 0 33.33
15.2 swivelled in to the middle stump and a magnificent catch from Clarke, who's fielding has been excellent from the off, removes the batsman with a diving effort 63/8
View dismissal S Sreesanth c Hodge b Voges 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
15.3 steps down the track, outside off, to meet the ball that doesn't quite come on to the bat, shapes to drive over cover, takes a slight edge, spoons to gully and that's another terrific catch, scooped low 63/9
