View dismissal M Vijay c Fazal b Watson 127 56 8 11 226.78
19.4 end of a superb innings from Vijay! Finally he mis-hits one and holes out to deep midwicket! He walks out to a unanimous standing ovation. Take a bow 241/4
View dismissal ML Hayden c Watson b Wagh 34 21 5 1 161.90
5.5 soft dismissal! full and wide half-volley, and he has hit it straight down extra cover's throat. Wagh is thrilled, he has had his own back after three boundaries 62/1
View dismissal SK Raina c Tait b Warne 13 7 2 0 185.71
8.2 another soft wicket! Full and wide, would have been called wide had Raina not flirted with it, and he has to really reach out for it, and the edge settles safely at point 83/2
View dismissal JA Morkel run out (Narwal) 62 34 3 5 182.35
19.2 from Watson, smacked too powerfully to mid-off and the single is not on. But he had to go for it anyway, and Narwal's direct-hit finds him short 235/3
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Narwal b Watson 0 1 0 0 0.00
19.5 Watson is on a hat-trick! slower ball, and Dhoni doesn't get power into the shot down the ground, and long-on does the rest 241/5

View dismissal MJ Lumb c Anirudha b Morkel 37 26 6 1 142.30
7.2 hits a length ball straight down sweeper-cover's throat. He had to go for everything here, hit this with an open face, and holes out 69/1
NV Ojha not out 94 55 8 6 170.90
View dismissal YK Pathan c Bollinger b Morkel 4 2 1 0 200.00
7.6 oh Bollinger you beauty! Pathan has mis-hit this into the stratosphere, but Bollinger settles himself at the edge of long-on boundary, stretches behind his body to take the catch, and while off balance, throws the ball back into the play, takes a step outside field of play,and comes back to complete the catch. That's wicked stuff for a fast bowler who is not one of the most mobile units you will see. The beauty is, he tried to resist the momentum, then saw he couldn't do that, and then threw it back! 80/2
View dismissal SR Watson b Bollinger 60 25 5 5 240.00
15.1 Bollinger you beauty! slower off cutter, 122ks, beats Watson on the slog, gets the top of off! Smiles at Watson as he walks back, pats him on the back, says well played, Watson nods back. That's how it should be! 177/3
View dismissal FY Fazal c Anirudha b Muralitharan 4 5 0 0 80.00
17.1 after keeping Fazal on strike with his fielding in the last over, Murali gets hisd wicket too, nicely flighting an offbreak. Fazal gets the toe end of the bat while looking for the big shot, and lobs it to cover-point 192/4
View dismissal AA Jhunjhunwala c Raina b Bollinger 7 4 0 1 175.00
18.3 slower offcutter gets another wicket! 116ks, Jhunjhunwala makes good connection with it, muscling it down the ground, but Raina judges it well and catches it at mid-off. Good captaincy too, to have mid-off up for Bollinger 210/5
