5.1

Saeed Ajmal to Sehwag, no run, This is not Sami's day. Not so far. Sehwag, as is his wont, lofts the first ball of spin he faces, and takes long-on on. Sami settles under it, but he has to stretch over the rope to try to catch it. And he seems to have touched the rope as he catches it and then throws it back in to keep it in play. Replays are inconclusive, but bizarrely this has been signalled as four. Beats me. Stumps me. It has to be either six or dot. How is it four? Apologies umpires. It has been corrected now that it was indeed a dot. How so typical of Sehwag to not even take a single off this?

5.2

Saeed Ajmal to Sehwag, OUT, and Sehwag is gone. Looks to cut a flat delivery from in front of the stumps, fails to keep it down, and Afridi takes a sharp catch to his right
