DJ Hussey to Gambhir, 1 run, Hussey tosses it up on the pads, Gambhir gets inside the line and nudges to square leg

30.2

DJ Hussey to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, tossed up outside off, Yuvraj seems to mean business, huge follow through as he check drives to long off for one

33.1

DJ Hussey to Yuvraj Singh, no run, this is horrendous running. Complete communication breakdown, says Sanjay Manjrekar. Arm ball on the stumps, Yuvraj plays all around it and it pops away to the leg side. Gambhir starts and stops. Yuvraj starts and stops. The throw goes to the batter's end. Should have gone to the other end.

33.2

DJ Hussey to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, infantile running. Gambhir is gone. That was even more horrendous. Not sure what was happening there again. Yuvraj guides a ball outside off backward of square, very fine on the off side. The ball went nowhere, and first slip was after it. Gambhir wants a single and runs three-fourths of the way down the track. Yuvraj hasn't budged. Not sure what Gambhir was thinking. He turned and then gave up, he didn't have a chance anyway. Gambhir just looks miffed with Yuvraj, as he bad-mouths on the way back. The fault was entirely his.

G Gambhir run out 50 (116m 64b 2x4 0x6) SR: 78.12

33.3

DJ Hussey to Yuvraj Singh, no run

33.4

DJ Hussey to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, this match is alive. India are stuttering for no reason. Yuvraj is early into a chip into the off side and it is nearly played right back at Hussey who puts the right arm out on his follow through. Too far away though.

33.5

DJ Hussey to Dhoni, 1 run, Dhoni leans out to a delivery breaking in from outside off and gets a single

33.6

DJ Hussey to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, Yuvraj nudges a full ball to midwicket, lots of chatter even before they get a single to a vacabt midwicket area.

India 171/4   DJ Hussey 4-0-13-1
35.1

DJ Hussey to Dhoni, FOUR, Dhoni's got a boundary to release some of the pressure. Poor delivery from Hussey, lands it midway and it turns in a little, but there was enough room for Dhoni to whack the cut through the covers. Ponting makes a huge effort in the infield and injures his already dodgy little finger. Deep point runs across and makes an extraordinary effort, but it is four.

35.2

DJ Hussey to Dhoni, 1 run, tossed up outside off, Dhoni powers the cover drive away for one more

35.3

DJ Hussey to Yuvraj Singh, no run, back of a length on off and middle, Yuvraj defends from the crease

35.4

DJ Hussey to Yuvraj Singh, no run, full toss on off stump, Yuvraj misses out, completely mistiming the cover drive and he gets it out to point

35.5

DJ Hussey to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, Hussey escapes with a poor ball, short and going down the leg side, Yuvraj looks to paddle-pull to fine leg, but Ponting at short fine leg is on it. Today, Ponting has been everywhere!

35.6

DJ Hussey to Dhoni, no run, again it is Ponting, this time at cover. Dhoni pushes a full delivery on off to his right, but the Aussie captain slides and slips away to deny him the single

India 179/4   DJ Hussey 5-0-19-1
