1 February 2008 - night match (20-over match)

Lee to Sehwag, OUT, 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

India 5/1   G Gambhir 3* (2b)   B Lee 0.5-0-5-0

Bracken to Gambhir, OUT, 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

G Gambhir c Hopes b Bracken 9 (9m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

India 12/2   KD Karthik 1* (1b)   NW Bracken 0.4-0-7-1

Lee to Karthik, OUT, booming low full toss, Karthik plays all around it and he just didn't see it, the ball skittles the sticks

India 20/3   RV Uthappa 1* (1b)   B Lee 2-0-11-1

Bracken to Uthappa, OUT, 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

RV Uthappa c DJ Hussey b Bracken 1 (7m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

India 20/4   RG Sharma 0* (0b)   NW Bracken 1.2-0-9-2

India 32/5   MS Dhoni 4* (12b)   JR Hopes 0.4-0-2-1

DJ Hussey to Dhoni, OUT, 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

MS Dhoni c Lee b DJ Hussey 9 (30m 27b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

India 49/6   IK Pathan 11* (15b)   DJ Hussey 1.4-0-5-1

India 60/7   IK Pathan 16* (20b)   AA Noffke 2.1-0-12-1

Voges to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, 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

India 63/8   IK Pathan 18* (24b)   AC Voges 1.2-0-5-1

Voges to Sreesanth, OUT, 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

S Sreesanth c Hodge b Voges 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 63/9   IK Pathan 18* (24b)   AC Voges 1.3-0-5-2

Bracken to Pathan, OUT, 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

IK Pathan c †Gilchrist b Bracken 26 (41m 30b 0x4 0x6) SR: 86.66

India 74/10   I Sharma 3* (6b)   NW Bracken 2.3-1-11-3
