0.1

Tait to Warner, 1 run, pacy one, at the rib cage, Warner hops, takes the bottom-hand off the handle and jabs it to backward square-leg

0.2

Tait to Sehwag, FOUR, Slap! It was a short of length delivery outside off and Sehwag rocks back, that front leg is lifted in the air calypso style, and he punches it through cover point.

0.3

Tait to Sehwag, OUT, Tait has his revenge. The very next ball. Sehwag is quick to turn and walk away from the scene. It was a short of length delivery outside off and it came in a touch, nothing alarming but just a bit. Sehwag tried to create room by hopping up and went for his slash. Edge and Dravid pouches it at first slip.
