ICC Cricket World Cup - 2nd quarter final

India v Australia

India won by 5 wickets (with 14 balls remaining)

29.1

Tendulkar to Clarke, 1 run, leggie to start off outside leg as the batsman hops out and works it to long on for one

29.2

Tendulkar to Ponting, 1 run, hideously poor full toss on middle and off, Ponting could have hit that back to Tasmania if he wanted, but he's pulled it straight to midwicket

29.3

Tendulkar to Clarke, no run, whoa! He's bowled the ball of the day! Drifts in towards outside leg stump, lands, grips and breaks right past the face of the bat. Clarke looks flummoxed. Hasn't seen such spin since he faced Warne in the nets.

29.4

Tendulkar to Clarke, 1 run, full toss. What a mixed bag. Clarke bunts to long on for one.

29.5

Tendulkar to Ponting, no run, another ripping leggie on leg stump, Ponting carefully defends as it breaks in.

29.6

Tendulkar to Ponting, 2 runs, he's tried to bowl a fellow legend round the legs. Ponting knows it well and does well to get bat on a paddle sweep to fine leg. Entertaining over, that!

Australia 138/2   SR Tendulkar 1-0-5-0

40.1

Tendulkar to White, no run, tosses the leg break up around middle and off, it is pushed with the turn to extra cover

40.2

Tendulkar to White, 1 run, touch short, and on leg stump, whipped away easily through square leg

40.3

Tendulkar to Ponting, 2 runs, the Sachin long hop arrives, full toss outside off stump, Ponting lifted it over extra cover, it is pulled back near the ropes

40.4

Tendulkar to Ponting, no run, strikes him on the pads, they go up in appeal, pitched outside leg

40.5

Tendulkar to Ponting, no run, in the blockhole, super delivery, dug out to the bowler

40.6

Tendulkar to Ponting, 1 run, turned towards Munaf at fine leg who saunters in, but they don't take the second

Australia 189/4   SR Tendulkar 2-0-9-0
