View dismissal RE Levi lbw b Ashwin 6 4 4 1 0 150.00
1.1 and he strikes first ball. That's plumb. This is an offbreak that dips and skids off the surface, pitches on a length just outside off, and turns in towards middle. Levi is caught on the back foot, and hit smack in front. What's more he played across the line, trying to work it to square leg 7/1
View dismissal HH Gibbs c Hussey b Bollinger 18 17 14 3 0 128.57
4.3 Gibbs is gone. Misreads the length, goes to pull a ball not that short, one comes off the bat even as he tries the shot, and ends up lobbing it towards mid-on. Hussey completes the simple catch 35/2
View dismissal DJ Vilas b Bravo 18 33 19 1 1 94.73
8.6 Bravo strikes. That slower ball retains some surprise even after blatant overuse. Vilas makes room and is perhaps playing for the offcutter, but this one goes straight and hits the off stump. Bravo is kicked 67/3
View dismissal OA Shah c Hussey b Morkel 45 55 38 3 1 118.42
16.3 another slower ball, another wicket, is this the over that turns this game? He looks to flick this over midwicket, from well outside off, and although he connects well, there is no pace on the ball to allow him pace on the shot. Hits a dolly to midwicket 126/5
View dismissal JP Duminy c Jakati b Morkel 29 31 24 2 1 120.83
16.1 Jakati makes amends with a superb catch running back. Duminy looks to hit countryman for a six first ball, gets a massive leading edge that seems it will clear short fine leg. Jakati turns around, runs back, and catches it over his shoulder 124/4
View dismissal JL Ontong c Raina b Bollinger 3 9 4 0 0 75.00
17.5 the bouncer does it, but the one at regulation pace. Ontong looks to pull, but this one keeps angling away and he has to try to pull it from well outside off. Gets a top edge that is safely pouched by Raina running towards the point region 133/6
JM Kemp* not out 5 17 9 0 0 55.55
View dismissal RJ Peterson b Bravo 5 5 5 1 0 100.00
18.6 this one doesn't need any carry. Peterson tries the slog-sweep, Bravo stays straight and short of a length. Peterson misses, Bravo hits 140/7

View dismissal MEK Hussey st †Vilas b Duminy 29 26 24 4 1 120.83
5.5 miss, fumble, stumping... Hussey charges again, Duminy gets some dip on this, beats him in the flight, squeezes it between the bat-pad gap, the extra bounce hits Vilas's chest, but Hussey is so far down that Vilas has enough time to collect the third rebound and stump him. Very rarely do you see Hussey get so comprehensively beaten 47/2
View dismissal M Vijay c Kemp b Philander 14 22 10 2 0 140.00
4.6 Caught. Top catch from Kemp. This is punched ferociously by Vijay, low to the short cover, Kemp goes down on a knee, and gets his trunk-sized palms under it 41/1
View dismissal SK Raina c & b Duminy 20 29 23 1 0 86.95
11.5 Duminy you have man? Four he says. And this is the big fish. Raina is slightly early into the shot, it's the dip again I think. And Duminy accepts the return catch with glee. Raina is stunned, goes back at Inzi's pace 77/5
View dismissal S Badrinath c Shah b Duminy 2 8 6 0 0 33.33
7.6 Duminy gets another one. He is giving the ball air, and drawing intemperate shots from Chennai. This is full outside off, Badri wants to go over extra, doesn't get the elevation, Shah completes the catch at short cover 53/3
View dismissal WP Saha c Peterson b Duminy 6 14 8 0 0 75.00
11.4 Duminy is on a roll here. Saha sweeps, but in the air, and doesn't time it well. It flies to the left of deep square, and the diving catch does it just fine for Copras. Peterson has done really well 76/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b Philander 15 30 17 0 0 88.23
17.4 He has dragged this on from well wide of off. Slower offcutter again, Dhoni looks to force this through off, gets the bottom edge into the ground and then onto the stumps 120/6
