View dismissal MJ Clarke lbw b Harbhajan Singh 1 11 4 0 0 25.00
31.4 now that is plumb, absolutely plumb, Harbhajan Singh tosses the ball superbly on off stump, what was Clarke thinking when he moved forward and offered no shot, the ball hit the pad in front of off and middle stump and umpire Benson's finger goes up in a flash 121/5

View dismissal W Jaffer b Lee 3 27 25 0 0 12.00
6.4 bowled him! That was sheer pace from Brett Lee, 146.7 kph. The yorker angled into Jaffer before swinging a shade away from the bat and crashing into the base of off stump, Jaffer was beaten for pace and the outswing made that virtually unplayable, Lee planned that well - following up several short balls with the yorker 8/1

86.5 plumb as you like that one, low and straight, trapping him on the back foot, Hawk Eye reckons that would have taken off stump about two-thirds up 321/5
