View dismissal Mandeep Singh c Binny b Sreesanth 2 9 8 0 0 25.00
1.6 caught at third-man! It's a different day, that's all we can say for Sreesanth. It was a length delivery wide outside off and it swings away too, the batsman throws his bat at that and gets a thick edges that flies straight down the throat of third man 8/2
View dismissal AC Gilchrist*† c Trivedi b Sreesanth 0 5 2 0 0 0.00
1.2 that's a good catch at mid-off by Trivedi! It was a check shot played off a length ball by Gilly and it floated over the right shoulder, Trivedi takes a few steps back and stretches to pluck that out. Another match, another failure for Gilly. 5/1

3.3 Sreesanth to Hussey, keeps it there on a length, the batsman defends it off the back foot towards off side, and they call for a single towards cover point, but they make the fatal mistake of taking on Faulkener, who just had to move a few paces to his left. He picks it up and takes down the stumps with a direct hit and now Manan Vohra joins the openers back in the dugout..Where was the run in that one! 10/3
View dismissal DJ Hussey c Dravid b Trivedi 41 49 31 4 1 132.25
12.5 fumble, but Dravid takes it on the second attempt! Mr. Hussey has driven the slower delivery straight to mid-off where Dravid goes low to take it, but palms it over his head. Much to the relief of the bowler, he holds on to it in the second attempt.. 75/6
View dismissal Gurkeerat Singh c †Samson b Trivedi 10 21 15 1 0 66.66
8.4 there is the edge! He bowls it on a length and gets it to seam away just enough for the ball to take a nice clean edge. It's an easy catch for the keeper. 45/4
View dismissal R Sathish c †Samson b Faulkner 11 15 12 2 0 91.66
11.4 another edge, another take for the keeper! This one goes across the right-hander after pitching short of length, the batsman tries to do what Gambhir has done so many times in international cricket, he opens the face and guides it to the hands of the keeper, who dives to his right to complete a good catch 67/5
View dismissal Azhar Mahmood b Cooper 23 26 20 3 0 115.00
17.3 now he gets the big wicket! another slower delivery and this one is on the middle stump line. Azhar was making room by moving down leg, but as soon as he saw the fuller length, he went across the line. But the ball went through the gap between the bat and the pad to hit the middle stump 104/8
View dismissal PP Chawla c Rahane b Cooper 7 13 9 0 0 77.77
15.6 he sees the slower delivery and decides that it is time to send it out of the ground, the only issue was that he played it too early. His right hand comes off the handle as he drives that and it goes really really high to come down in the lap of Rahane at long-on 92/7
RJ Harris not out 2 15 3 0 0 66.66
View dismissal P Kumar run out (†Samson) 15 5 7 2 1 214.28
18.4 from Faulkner, oh no! He has walked down too far down the pitch! It was another low full toss outside off and PK was targeting that backward point area again, but he misses it and for some reason, walks a few paces down the pitch, the keeper has all the time in the world to hit the stumps... 124/9
View dismissal P Awana c †Samson b Faulkner 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
18.5 this one is a nasty delivery by Faulkner for the No. 11. He has been bowling those slower deliveries all this while, but he dishes out a quick short one on the body. Awana had no idea where it went as he took his eyes off the ball while fending it. The ball just lobbed over his head for the keeper to complete the catch 124/10

View dismissal SR Watson c Mandeep Singh b Awana 32 21 19 7 0 168.42
4.4 the only shot that was missing comes now, he plays a tennis forehand off a short delivery outside off, but mistimes it completely, it ends up as simple catch for the fielder at mid-on. 43/1

View dismissal R Dravid* c †Gilchrist b Kumar 9 11 12 2 0 75.00
7.1 what a teasing delivery and a very good one-handed diving catch by Gilly! He bowls it on a length, draws Dravid forward, but it is slightly wide. Dravid is not able to cover the swing on it and ends up getting a thick outside edge that flies to the right of keeper.. 58/2
View dismissal STR Binny c †Gilchrist b Kumar 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
7.5 another one-hander for Gilchrist! That the batsman played a horrible nothing poke off a length delivery is not really important here. He got a thickish outside edge that was dying towards the right side of Gilly, who stuck his hand out and swallows it up 58/3
View dismissal BJ Hodge lbw b Chawla 15 21 16 2 0 93.75
12.5 and Hodge had no idea about this one! He plants his front foot forward assuming the ball was going to turn away, but it keeps coming in with the angle and hits him right in front. An easy decision for the umps 79/4
