View dismissal GJ Maxwell lbw b Watson 23 12 17 0 3 135.29
3.2 gone, lbw, Watson's got his fellow Aussie here! it was on the middle stump and swinging back into the batsman, he was looking to jam his bat down quickly but it seems to have escaped it and hit the back thigh, the umpire thought for many a seconds before giving it. Watson's given him a nice, little farewell too. 25/1
View dismissal AP Tare c Watson b Cooper 59 54 37 8 1 159.45
12.4 chipped away and easily caught off a slower ball! took the pace off and was outside the off stump, he was looking to clear the in-field but plays his shot way too early, he's beaten and the ball lobs up for Watson to take a good catch running back 108/3
View dismissal KD Karthik c Samson b Tambe 21 37 21 3 0 100.00
11.5 and now he's caught! wanted to slog sweep it yet again, this time it's been hit to the deep mid-wicket fielder, where Samson takes a good tumbling catch to send back Karthik 101/2
View dismissal RG Sharma* c Watson b Faulkner 14 20 9 2 0 155.55
15.5 top-edged and he's gone! it seemed to be a slower one and he was looking to pull it away, was attempting to help it away and the ball balloons high up in the air and Watson from short fine-leg takes a very well-judged catch there 138/4
View dismissal KA Pollard run out (Cooper) 17 24 14 1 1 121.42
16.4 from Cooper, leading edge, and he's gone! run-out! this was a good delivery and deserved a wicket, the ball bounced more than he expected and takes the leading edge to the off side, Cooper does not get close to it on the full but he's quick enough to run to it, pick up and has a shy at the non-striker's end. Pollard was slow to get to that end, did not dive and he's quite outside the crease. A very, very good throw that. 144/5
View dismissal AT Rayudu c Samson b Watson 7 13 7 0 0 100.00
17.5 and this time he's caught, gets it away to deep mid-wicket where Samson takes it very well! the ball was fuller, Rayadu loves going back and he seemed to have thought that this was the one he could have tonked over the fielders, the pace seemed to have been taken off there and there's no timing on, holes out to Samson just a yard inside the fence 151/6
Harbhajan Singh not out 15 18 7 1 1 214.28
View dismissal MG Johnson c Hodge b Faulkner 2 7 7 0 0 28.57
19.3 gone, caught, straight to short fine-leg! it was a full-toss on the middle stump, he was looking to scoop it over the fine-leg fielder, gets it off the middle of the bat alright but the placement isn't what he would have wanted, straight to the fielder at pace 164/7
View dismissal SL Malinga run out (Watson/Faulkner/†Yagnik) 1 2 1 0 0 100.00
19.6 Faulkner to Harbhajan Singh, gone, run-out off the last ball, it was fuller on the pads, flicked to the deep mid-wicket region, they take a single and Malinga wants to come back for the second, he comes back but Harbhajan decides he prefers a not-out next to his name and Malinga is easily run-out there 166/8

View dismissal R Dravid* c †Karthik b Johnson 4 3 5 1 0 80.00
0.5 bouncer and that's been given! whoa, now I have never seen this before. This was short, a bouncer and he was looking to pull it away, missed it, the keeper went up in appeal and the umpire gives it out. So far so good. But then comes Dravid's reaction, who stays there for a few seconds and lets out a frustrated rant, probably in the direction of the umpire, walks back to the dugout and almost slams his bat in disgust. Replays suggest it hadn't hit the bat 5/1
View dismissal AM Rahane c Malinga b Kulkarni 4 30 8 0 0 50.00
5.4 and now he's gone high, but not too handsome, it's been caught! was on the middle stump and he was looking to hit it over the top, was full enough to go after it too but somehow I felt he did not get his foot out too much and it's gone high, falls into the laps of the waiting Malinga 28/4
View dismissal JP Faulkner c Maxwell b Kulkarni 12 13 13 2 0 92.30
3.4 gone, caught, was trying to slice it away and can get only a top-edge on that one, goes high in the air, Maxwell runs back to take a good catch 22/2
View dismissal SV Samson c Ojha b Johnson 4 5 4 1 0 100.00
4.4 mis-hits it to wide mid-on and Ojha takes the catch! it was a short of a length ball and the batsman was looking to pull it over the in-fielder, he gets it high on the bat, lobs up to the right of the fielder, Ojha runs across to take the chance 26/3
View dismissal SR Watson c Pollard b Ojha 19 26 16 0 2 118.75
9.1 short ball and that's been caught by Pollard. irony of the situation, it was shorter, he goes on the back foot to try and smack it over mid-wicket, gets a top edge and Pollard not only takes the catch but also celebrates hard, he sure looks to have enjoyed sending back Watson. 58/5
STR Binny not out 37 74 29 3 1 127.58
View dismissal DH Yagnik b Harbhajan Singh 10 13 14 1 0 71.42
12.5 bowled him now, Harbhajan has a wicket! he had to go after the bowling here with the required rate so high, he went down the track but misses, sneaks through and the stumps are rattled 88/6
View dismissal BJ Hodge lbw b Malinga 39 35 27 7 0 144.44
19.1 gone, yorker length and given out lbw! it was a full-toss in the end and Hodge was looking to swing it across the line, that was his best option there and he misses, the yorker dipped on him and beats him, the umpire has no doubt giving him out there 144/7
