41.5

Wahab Riaz to Harbhajan Singh, no run, on a length, seaming away, and tapped to point

41.6

Wahab Riaz to Harbhajan Singh, no run, definite reverse swing from Riaz, snaking deceptively through the air at a good pace to zip past the outside edge of Harbhajan's bat

India 205/6   Harbhajan Singh 0* (2b)
42.3

Saeed Ajmal to Harbhajan Singh, no run, doosra and Bhajji is absolutely bamboozled! Didn't pick that at all, playing for turn where there was none, beaten

42.4

Saeed Ajmal to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, a looping top edge on the sweep! But it falls safely, and they take a single

India 207/6   Harbhajan Singh 1* (4b)
43.1

Wahab Riaz to Harbhajan Singh, 2 runs, swiped out into the deep on the leg side, and they're back for the second

43.2

Wahab Riaz to Harbhajan Singh, 1 wide, Riaz loses his radar, sending this one down the leg side

43.2

Wahab Riaz to Harbhajan Singh, no run, that's better, nicely straight this time to draw a defensive stroke from Harbhajan

43.3

Wahab Riaz to Harbhajan Singh, 1 wide, Kamran saves runs! Again Riaz sends one down the leg side, this one went even further and was heading for four wides ... until Kamran leapt athletically to his left to stop it one-handed

43.3

Wahab Riaz to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, fuller, and outside off this time. Harbhajan steps forward and drives into the covers

43.6

Wahab Riaz to Harbhajan Singh, no run, Riaz steams in from round the wicket to Bhajji, banging this one in fairly short. It spits up, going with the angle towards leg stump and strikes the batsman on the hip, looping towards short fine leg. Bhajji was looking for the paddle-pull but couldn't connect

India 213/6   Harbhajan Singh 4* (8b)
44.2

Saeed Ajmal to Harbhajan Singh, no run, Harbhajan sweeps, it comes off the glove and balloons to gully ... no fielder is close enough

44.3

Saeed Ajmal to Harbhajan Singh, no run, flapped back to the bowler

44.4

Saeed Ajmal to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, this time he connects with the sweep! That's hit uppishly but well-placed, beating short fine leg and deep square. First boundary for the best part of 15 overs

44.5

Saeed Ajmal to Harbhajan Singh, 2 wides, this'll be wides, speared down the leg side, the ball strikes Kamran's glove and rolls to fine leg. Ajmal isn't happy

India 220/6   Harbhajan Singh 8* (11b 1x4)
45.5

Umar Gul to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, four runs to fine leg! Gul is losing it here, another full toss and this time it's misdirected down the leg side, a deflection off the bat and it beats Kamran

45.6

Umar Gul to Harbhajan Singh, no run, dot ball to finish, very full and reversing to beat the bat, but wide of off. India really needed an over like that

India 235/6   Harbhajan Singh 12* (13b 2x4)
46.3

Saeed Ajmal to Harbhajan Singh, no run, well, Harbhajan wasn't picked the doosra when he first came in but he seems to be doing so now. Defended

46.4

Saeed Ajmal to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, doosra, missed and stumped! Harbhajan jumped down the wicket and aimed for the straight boundary, but ran straight past the ball and is easily stumped by several metres. Ajmal the clear winner in the battle between the two offspinners

Harbhajan Singh st †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 12 (28m 15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

India 236/7   Harbhajan Singh 12 (15b 2x4)
