View dismissal V Sehwag b Vettori 55 22 3 6 250.00
8.1 but a man who could have had the perfect World Cup farewell makes it known he still has it. Danny Vettori comes in and castles Viru. It's slow, it just goes on with the arm. Viru, as Viru does, was making room to tap the ball away into the leg side. Leaves a gap between bat and pad and is bowled 85/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar* c Kallis b Warne 26 27 2 1 96.29
7.6 superp catch from Kallis and everyone is in splits! Sachin walks off with a grin on his face, perhaps in disbelief. But the story here is Warnie has got Sachin, again. Thanks to a 40-year old Kallis leaping several feet in the air and grabbing onto a one-hander. Mistimed pull from the batsman ends up at mid-off 85/1
View dismissal VVS Laxman st †Sangakkara b Warne 8 9 0 0 88.88
11.4 Warnie is on absolute song! Laxman joins Lara and Sachin among the people who will get an earful later at the bar. Runs down the track, but the wily leggie has seen it early. Holds it back and drops it short - this time to hoodwink the batsman - and it works. The ball grips, turns and has Laxman stumped. 97/4
View dismissal BC Lara lbw b Warne 1 8 0 0 12.50
9.5 Warnie has done it! he has downed Sachin and now Lara! That was the straighter one, no turn on it but Lara was looking for some. Went across for the sweep shot and is struck right in line 88/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c sub (AB Agarkar) b Symonds 18 15 0 1 120.00
15.3 in the aiiiiir, Agarkaaar, takes it! It was short from Symonds, Mahela jumped back for the pull over wide mid-on again, but those straighter boundaries are massive. He can't quite clear them 118/5
View dismissal CL Hooper lbw b Symonds 11 19 0 0 57.89
17.3 full, straight, Hooper goes across the line with a heave and is caught in front. Big grins everywhere 127/6
View dismissal SM Pollock c Kallis b Donald 11 9 0 1 122.22
19.2 and instant retribution. It's an all South African showdown! Full on middle, Polly swings and finds another one of his good mates Kallis waiting to take the catch. Donald just chuckles. It's fun again. And it just went off again. 137/8
View dismissal Moin Khan c Kallis b Symonds 1 2 0 0 50.00
17.6 fired in quick and flat on off stump, Moin goes for the good old whack and finds Kallis in the deep at midwicket. Deftly taken. Safest hands in the business? 130/7

2.5 Shoaib Akhtar to Ponting, they are off. Akhtar is taking high-fives from everyone. Sanga is caught hopping as another one lifts off a back of a length area. Takes the shoulder of the bat and goes to point - on the bounce - which Taufel reminds them 22/2
View dismissal ML Hayden c †Moin Khan b Shoaib Akhtar 4 4 1 0 100.00
2.4 "All about making them do what they don't want to," says Hayden as Shoaib revs up. It is short, and quick. He goes for the pull and has been caught behind the wicket. "Smashed it with my glove," he says as he walks back 20/1

View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Jayawardene b Shoaib Akhtar 41 29 2 3 141.37
12.3 he has bounced out a man who had struck four back-to-back hundreds in the World Cup 2015! The short ball comes at him at steep pace. Sanga was shaping for the hook, but the ball just takes the splice and leaps up and to make matters just that tiny bit sweeter, it is taken by Mahela Jayawardene in the deep 102/3
View dismissal A Symonds lbw b Muralitharan 1 7 0 0 14.28
13.5 he has got it! Perfectly accurate, some turn as well. Symo is in front of the stumps to try and flick it. Misses and is struck on the pads. Murali belts out and appeal and gets that lovely extended forefinger. Could that have been sliding down? Maybe. 104/4
