Muralitharan to Dhoni, OUT, Muralitharan to Dhoni, OUT (Bowled) - beauty! tossed up, pitched outside the leg stump and turning right across, another perfect doosra, Dhoni pushes forward to defend, ball turns away just enough to beat the bat and the off stump is pegged back, Warne would have been proud of that delivery!

Bandara to Kumble, OUT, Bandara to Kumble, Kumble comes down the track hoping to play it down the ground to the offside, the ball is full this time around and Kumble misses the line completely, its finally sound of timber and Kumble has to take the long walk back to the pavilion
