View dismissal MJ Clarke lbw b Khan 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 what a start! Zaheer lands it on a good length bang on middle stump, gets the ball to drift in to the right-hander before pitching. Clarke gets a half stride forward and the ball strikes him right in front. The umpire had no hesitation in raising his finger as Zaheer went up in appeal 0/1
View dismissal AC Gilchrist c Harbhajan Singh b Pathan 19 51 26 4 0 73.07
9.2 Gilchrist goes for the wild slash and pays the price! that was full and swinging away from the left hander outside off. Gilchrist goes for the expansive slash over point and gets a thick top edge which flies to Harbhajan running to his right from third man 60/2
View dismissal RT Ponting* c †Dhoni b Singh 57 129 78 9 0 73.07
26.1 edged and gone! Big wicket for RP, coming around the stumps again and bowling it a touch short, tempting Ponting to sway back and cut, but the result it a thick outside-edge which Dhoni snaps up 129/5
View dismissal BJ Hodge c Karthik b Kartik 16 50 29 2 0 55.17
19.5 and thats that, as Hodge, with limited footwork, pushes at a shorter and quicker delivery outside off stump and gives the wide slip catching practice, ending a scratchy innings in which he couldnt force it against the spinners 117/3
View dismissal A Symonds c Tendulkar b Kartik 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
19.6 and the big man goes first ball! The ball's pretty ordinary, short and wide outside off stump and Kartik's extremely lucky to get Symonds, cutting at it and looking on as Tendulkar, in the covers, dives forward and takes a good catch! 117/4
View dismissal BJ Haddin lbw b Kartik 19 48 38 3 0 50.00
31.1 Kartik gets him with the arm ball! Haddin gets a half-stride forward to a delivery pitched on middle and straightening. The ball strikes him low on the front pad and that was an easy decision for Umpire Saheba 162/6
View dismissal JR Hopes b Kartik 22 46 23 3 0 95.65
35.5 Hopes misreads the turn! flighted around the middle stump. Hopes goes back and the ball spins from middle, goes through and clips the off stump. Big daylight between bat and pad on that one. That's six for Kartik... what a comeback! 177/9
View dismissal GB Hogg c Uthappa b Kartik 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
31.4 bat-pad! flighted on off stump, Hogg gets a stride forward and appeared to get an inside edge onto the pads. Uthappa at forward short-leg takes the catch and the rest are certain they've got the wicket. Hogg looks rather unhappy with Saheba's decision though 162/7
View dismissal B Lee c Singh b Kartik 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
31.5 Kartik takes five! flighted on off stump, draws Lee onto the forward drive and succeeds in getting an outside edge to RP Singh at gully. Kartik's on a hat-trick here...again! 162/8
MG Johnson not out 24 42 31 2 1 77.41
View dismissal NW Bracken c Harbhajan Singh b Singh 3 25 18 0 0 16.66
41.3 and thats the end of that! Bracken gets a short-pitched delivery on the stumps, swivels into the pull, doesnt time it well at all and all Harbhajan has to do is jog in from fine leg and hold a simple catch. 193/10

View dismissal SC Ganguly c †Gilchrist b Johnson 0 9 7 0 0 0.00
1.4 first blood to Johnson! teases Ganguly with a good length delivery pitching on off stump. The ball angles away from the left-hander after pitching and Ganguly is all at sea as he gets a thick outside edge through to Gilchrist 3/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar b Lee 21 52 36 4 0 58.33
10.2 Lee hits the timber! full and swinging in, Tendulkar leans across for the cover drive, plays away from the body and gets an inside edge onto the stumps. The ball just clips the leg-bail 38/3
View dismissal KD Karthik c †Gilchrist b Johnson 0 12 6 0 0 0.00
3.4 edged and gone! teasing length from Johnson - pitched up just outside the off stump. Karthik senses an opportunity to break the rut and get off the mark. he drives and the thinnest of edges goes through to Gilchrist 8/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c †Gilchrist b Bracken 15 47 26 2 0 57.69
13.5 Bracken finally gets his reward! almost the perfect delivery - comes in to the left hander, Yuvraj sticks his bat out, expects the ball to continue with the line but it shapes away. He gets a thick outside edge and the athletic Gilchrist flings himself to his left and takes the catch 49/4
View dismissal RV Uthappa lbw b Clarke 47 100 59 4 2 79.66
31.3 Clarke strikes! tossed up on off stump, Uthappa gets forward to a full length delivery and tries to defend.The ball hits him low on the pad and umpire Aleem Dar is convinced the ball struck him in line with off stump 129/7
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c †Gilchrist b Bracken 5 22 11 1 0 45.45
17.5 edged and gone! The thinnest of edges as Dhoni stands rooted to his crease and can't resist fishing at one angled across off stump, a pretty inoccuous delivery but Dhoni's gentle feeler only ended up in Gilchrist's safe gloves .. and thats his 400th catch in one-day cricket as India slip further 63/5
View dismissal IK Pathan c Clarke b Hopes 0 4 5 0 0 0.00
18.5 and he doesnt trouble the scorers any! Hopes gets it to pitch and angle across Pathan, who is tempted, like Dhoni a moment ago, to push at it and this time its catching practice for second slip ... nothing more than a steer into his hands and Hopes loves it ... 64/6
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c Ponting b Johnson 19 73 49 1 0 38.77
35.4 short of a length and wide outside off, Harbhajan tries to glide it past the keeper with a lazy glide. Ponting, at wide first slip, takes the catch easily at head-height 143/8
