View dismissal MS Wade c & b Sharma 45 127 67 2 1 67.16
27.4 56.1 mph, the bowling change works for India, Rohit cut back on the pace a bit, drew Wade forward for the chipped drive but he ended up spooning it straight back at Rohit, easy catch 117/3
View dismissal DA Warner c Tendulkar b Pathan 43 58 46 5 1 93.47
12.6 Irfan has struck. Tendulkar has taken a catch, and Rohit Sharma isn't anywhere near him this time. Soft dismissal, Irfan dangles it full with no pace on the pads, and Warner contrives to chip it uppishly straight at midwicket. India will breathe easy now. Warner looked in agony when he saw that looping straight to Sachin. 70/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* c Pathan b Khan 7 33 26 0 0 26.92
19.2 81.4 mph, Ponting's struggle ends! He falls for the trap thanks to some intelligent field placing, drifts on the pads and he tries to loft over the leg side but ends up finding Irfan at deep backward square leg 83/2
View dismissal PJ Forrest c Kohli b Pathan 52 117 71 3 0 73.23
43.6 double-strike for Irfan! Forrest whips a length delivery on the pads in the air down to deep midwicket, the ball dips on Kohli but he does well to dive and take the catch on the tumble, his 'love affair; with the crowd continues as he makes another gesture to the crowd behind him., this time it didn't seem like anything offensive 223/5
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Raina b Pathan 59 77 52 6 0 113.46
43.1 60.7 mph, some relief for India here! Credit to Irfan for his clever change of pace, Hussey gives the charge but wasn't ready for the slower ball outside off, tries to swing it across the line and doesn't get the elevation or the distance, down Raina's throat at deep midwicket 217/4

View dismissal G Gambhir c †Wade b Lee 5 6 5 1 0 100.00
1.3 88.2 mph, Lee has got rid of the in-form man! Peach of a delivery on the corridor outside the off stump, Gambhir was tentative on the defense, didn't move his feet across and he was beaten for a bit of extra pace too, thin edge taken by Wade 8/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c Doherty b Hilfenhaus 3 21 12 0 0 25.00
4.4 90.5 mph, Doherty again! But this time he hangs on to it easily! Tendulkar arches backward to a short delivery to play one of his signature shots - the upper cut over the slips and third man - didn't get the elevation and Doherty at third man barely had to move 15/2
View dismissal V Kohli c DJ Hussey b Hilfenhaus 12 44 25 0 0 48.00
10.3 85.6 mph, Appeal for a catch at slip, Kohli isn't sure if that carried to David Hussey at slip, outside edge travels low to Hussey's right and the catcher was certain he took it cleanly, the umpires have a chat and refer it upstairs, from the square leg angle it looked alright and the third umpire is convinced. Kohli doesn't look too pleased but he has to go 36/4
View dismissal RG Sharma c †Wade b Lee 0 6 5 0 0 0.00
5.5 90.4 mph, slashed and edged! Length ball outside off, Rohit is tempted to slash it away and he does by staying rooted to the crease, thick edge to Wade and Bowden raises the crooked finger and immediately cautions the batsman to wait, just to check if it was a front-foot no-ball. It's legal and a peeved Rohit exchanges a few words to the fielders. Perhaps they said something to provoke him 16/3
View dismissal SK Raina c †Wade b Christian 28 76 41 1 1 68.29
22.2 soft dismissal for Raina, won't exactly call it a wicket-taking delivery because it was slanting quite wide across the left-hander which could have been left alone, Raina couldn't resist chasing it and ended up driving away from the body, thick edge again 82/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Christian b Hilfenhaus 56 115 84 2 1 66.66
37.2 85.6 mph, now even 230 looks like a mirage for India, short delivery again and on the body, Dhoni tries to pull that in front of square on the on side, ends up finding Christian at midwicket, it appeared like a slower ball 149/7
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Forrest b Starc 18 29 35 1 0 51.42
30.4 88.1 mph, Forrest takes a sharp catch! Jadeja tries to force the pace by carving a full delivery over the off-side field, plays away from the body and gets forward and skies it behind cover point, three fielders converge but Forrest runs forward from the deep and takes it on the fall 114/6
View dismissal IK Pathan c †Wade b Hilfenhaus 19 52 27 1 1 70.37
41.1 81.2 mph, Pathan aims to slog that over the on side, made room and had a wild swing and got a thick top edge that swirled behind him, Wade did extremely well to sprint to his left and take the catch on the fall 168/9
View dismissal R Vinay Kumar b Lee 6 14 12 0 0 50.00
40.2 88.3 mph, Vinay gives Lee the charge but the yorker was too good for him, makes room exposes the woodwork and the ball hammers the base of leg stump 162/8
View dismissal Z Khan c †Wade b Hilfenhaus 9 14 11 2 0 81.81
43.3 82.9 mph, Five for Hilfenhaus! He really must buy Wade a few drinks for this catch, Zaheer makes room to a short delivery on the body, takes his eyes off the ball and top edges the pull, Wade runs all the way towards short square leg and takes the catch on the dive, very similar to the one that got Irfan. Five catches for Wade as well! 178/10
