View dismissal G Gambhir c Misbah-ul-Haq b Iftikhar Anjum 9 19 12 2 0 75.00
2.3 Wow! What a stunner from Misbah at backward point. Supremely athletic effort from the acting captain. Gambhir had flashed a short-of-length delivery to left of Misbah who flew, his left-arm outstretched and plucked it like a mythical creature. A Youtube moment. 12/1
View dismissal V Sehwag c Younis Khan b Shahid Afridi 119 150 95 12 5 125.26
30.4 holes out to long-off. He came down the track and ended up slicing it high and Younis got under it, lunged forward to take the catch. But what a smashing knock this has been. Started off carefully, got his eye in before exploding merrily 231/3
View dismissal SK Raina c Fawad Alam b Iftikhar Anjum 84 110 69 10 3 121.73
27.1 Raina misses out on the hundred. He punches a back-of-length delivery straight to Fawad Alam at extra cover. But it has been an wonderful innings. Great timing. 210/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Salman Butt b Sohail Tanvir 48 54 47 1 3 102.12
