Khan to Badrinath, no run, hangs in the crease and allows the length ball to come on around off, then takes a step forward and defends


Khan to Badrinath, no run, this is super stuff from Zaheer, 136.4 kph, Badri gets forward to a length ball for the extra cover drive, but the ball moves in a long way to strike him on the pads, the appeal is turned down, Gayle makes the sign for the referral, it would have just clipped off

Khan to Morkel, 1 run, wobbles in the air a shade, is fuller and wider outside off, he gets to the pitch and drives in the air wide of long off


Khan to Dhoni, FOUR, crash! Dhoni gets one short of a good length, it does not get up much, around waist height, he transfers weight on the back foot and thumps the pull in front of deep square leg


Khan to Dhoni, 2 runs, shuffles in the crease and gets well outside the line of this one to work it off the pads wide of the man at long leg, enough for Dhoni to take two
