View dismissal JH Kallis b Singh 15 17 3 0 88.23
3.3 dragged on! Kallis gets into position early and spots the short ball but only manages to reach out and under edge the ball onto off stump, massive wicket that 20/1
View dismissal MK Pandey c †Gilchrist b Ojha 4 8 0 0 50.00
6.1 and he's got his man first ball! This one pitches back of a length and turns ever so slightly away from Pandey, who waits on the back foot and cuts but only manages the thinnest of edges into Gilchrist's gloves 36/2
View dismissal RE van der Merwe st †Gilchrist b Ojha 32 21 1 3 152.38
8.3 wild slog and he's stumped by a week! Ojha persists with the fuller length, slows it up a touch, it dips and breaks away sharply from Roelof as he skips out and swings, Gilchrist just has to collect and break the stumps 57/3
View dismissal R Dravid b Harmeet Singh 9 13 0 0 69.23
11.4 bowled em! Dravid gets too far across his stumps and cannot pull off the paddle shot with a man down at deep fine leg and his leg stump is knocked over 79/4
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Venugopal Rao b Symonds 27 20 3 1 135.00
14.2 gone this time and thats a crucial time to get rid of Taylor! Symonds dropped it back in length and Taylor's eye lits lit up, but he miscues the pull shot straight to the man out at deep square leg, who doesn't make a mistake 99/5
View dismissal V Kohli st †Gilchrist b Symonds 7 8 1 0 87.50
14.3 hello hello hello, whats this? Excellent work from Gilchrist, collecting the ball that slides down Kohli's pads, he's over the line and doesn't get back in time so thats stumped and the stadium erupts as the sign flashes OUT on the big screen, chalk that down to excellent work behind the stumps from Gilchrist 99/6
View dismissal MV Boucher c Gibbs b Harmeet Singh 5 6 1 0 83.33
15.5 gone, is that the game? Boucher goes back and limply cuts a short and wide ball right to Gibbs at point, right into his lap and Harmeet has taken another wicket 107/7

View dismissal P Kumar c Singh b Ojha 2 3 0 0 66.66
16.4 they're collapsing! Ojha gently lobs it up on the stumps, Praveen swings across the line and the leading edge is taken easily by RP Singh running in from gully 110/8
View dismissal R Vinay Kumar c Harmeet Singh b Harris 8 8 1 0 100.00
18.6 brilliant catch, and I mean brilliant, and whats more the batsmen have crossed! Vinay gets right across his stumps and paddles the ball, makes good contact but Harmeet Singh runs in from fine leg and holds a stunner inches off the ground, catches win matches, put them down at your peril is the old saying and this young man has held his nerves excellently to hold on 129/9
