14.1

Duminy to Sehwag, 1 run, tapped out into deep cover, and the two isn't quite on

14.2

Duminy to Tendulkar, 1 run, what's that hit, bat or pad? Tickled very fine down to fine leg, looks like it was the bat, no signal from the umpire.

14.3

Duminy to Sehwag, 1 run, eased down to long-on, and another run is added to the total

14.4

Duminy to Tendulkar, no run, Duminy stays round the wicket, landing the ball quite wide of off but Sachin tries to whip it towards long-on all the same

14.5

Duminy to Tendulkar, SIX, lofted! Sachin has teed off, the ball goes really high and that looked like a monster hit ... but only just clears a sprinting long-on fielder! 142nd six of the tournament

14.6

Duminy to Tendulkar, no run, crashed hard into the covers, but there's a fielder in the way of the ball

33.2

Duminy to Gambhir, FOUR, Gambhir charges and lofts the ball over extra cover, splitting the gap between deep cover and long off

33.3

Duminy to Gambhir, FOUR, Duminy strays down leg side and Gambhir plays a fine paddle, du Plessis chases after it and dives head first to try and save the boundary. He doesn't and then crashes into the thick advertisement hoardings. The electronic ones. Careful man!

33.4

Duminy to Gambhir, 1 run, played on the leg side for a single

33.5

Duminy to Tendulkar, 1 run, short ball and Tendulkar pulls, the crowd screams in unison as they think it's a four. It isn't.

Duminy to Gambhir, no run, nudged on the off side, Gambhir begins to run and then sees Tendulkar isn't interested

India 230/1   JP Duminy 3-0-29-0
