View dismissal RT Ponting* c Ashwin b Rajpoot 6 16 10 0 0 60.00
3.2 caught at slip! Expecting Ponting to charge again, the bowler bowls a quick bouncer and Ponting is a bit early on his pull, the ball takes a leading edge and flies flat towards first slip where Ashwin takes a smart head-high catch. Another big blow, a big first wicket for Rajpoot 17/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar lbw b Nannes 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
0.5 he is out first ball! The umpire takes his time, the bowler continues appealing and finally gets the decision in his favour. The ball was on length, pitched on leg stump, the batsman played across the line and gets hit right in front. Tendlya takes ages to walk off the pitch, but that was as plumb as you get but that would have hit the top of leg stump 3/1
View dismissal KD Karthik lbw b Bravo 37 37 25 4 1 148.00
8.2 the umpire takes ages to decide, but this looked plumb the moment it hit the pad. It was a length delivery and the batsman chose to go back to it in an attempt to flick it to the leg, he misses and gets hit on the knee-roll in front of middle and leg 59/4
View dismissal RG Sharma c †Dhoni b Bravo 8 13 10 1 0 80.00
6.1 he is gone, Rohit is gone! Bravo does it off the first ball! He bowled it on a length and the ball cuts into the batsman, Rohit is surprised by the movement and gets a faint inside edge which Dhoni takes diving to his left. Another big wicket 41/3
View dismissal AT Rayudu c Nannes b Laughlin 7 23 10 0 0 70.00
10.3 caught at third man! Another one goes back to the dugout! It was a slower delivery outside off, the length was fuller and that drew Rayudu into a hoick, but the batsman gets a big leading edge which goes high in the night sky before settling into the hands of Nannes in the deep. First wicket for Laughlin 75/5
KA Pollard not out 57 58 38 4 5 150.00
View dismissal DR Smith c Bravo b Ashwin 3 6 5 0 0 60.00
11.6 caught at long-on! Oh no, there goes another one! Ashwin tosses it right up and Smith takes the invitation and smacks it straight down the ground, but the ball was too full and he didn't get right under it, it goes as far as long-on where Bravo gobbles it up and does a little jig 83/6
Harbhajan Singh not out 21 38 21 1 1 100.00

View dismissal MEK Hussey b Harbhajan Singh 20 37 23 3 0 86.95
7.4 tossed up delivery which is slower through the air, Hussey goes for a cross-batter hoick towards midwicket, but the ball sneaks under the bat to break the stump arrangement, big big wicket 42/3
View dismissal M Vijay b Patel 5 9 8 0 0 62.50
1.6 he hits timber this time! Vijay tries moving to the off side this time in an attempt to flick it fine on the leg side, but misses the line of the ball and it hits the top of leg stump. Munaf roars.. 10/1
View dismissal SK Raina c Ponting b Johnson 10 12 7 1 0 142.85
4.3 this was a length delivery on the stumps, the batsman tries to whip it to the leg side but gets an inside edge on to his pads, after which the ball lobs up towards point where Ponting completes a simple catch. Finally someone catches something off Johnson 30/2
View dismissal DJ Bravo c †Karthik b Ojha 10 28 17 0 0 58.82
10.2 he gets out off the next ball as DK holds on to a brilliant low catch behind the stumps. The ball was similar to the previous one, flighted and full outside off, the batsman tried to launch it over extra cover again but gets a thin edge and the keeper takes a low catch on the second attempt 58/4
View dismissal S Badrinath lbw b Ojha 16 22 16 1 0 100.00
12.1 tossed up slider that hits the batsman on the knee roll off the back pad while Badrinath was deep in his crease, he should have come perhaps forward to that one. The umpire reckons the ball would have hit the leg stick 66/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Pollard b Patel 51 55 26 5 3 196.15
19.1 Polly has done it! He has pulled off another stunner at the boundary! It was a length delivery, one of those which disappeared in the previous over, it looked like this was going out of the ground too, but Polly intercepts just in time with the tall frame of his, outstretched arms, bucket palms, is that the match? 137/9
View dismissal RA Jadeja b Patel 16 16 11 1 1 145.45
15.2 he goes after this one too, but ends up getting an inside edge on to the middle stump, Munaf is pumped, those glaring eyes help Jadeja find the way back to his dugout.. 97/6
View dismissal R Ashwin c Pollard b Harbhajan Singh 2 8 5 0 0 40.00
16.5 he charges down the track, but Harbhajan bowls it short, Ashwin goes swinging like its the sixties anyway and doesn't strike it too well, there is Pollard there who swallows this up 108/7
View dismissal B Laughlin b Pollard 0 9 1 0 0 0.00
17.5 he bowls a slower delivery outside off, the batsman was too eager to push it to the leg side and falls over a bit, gets an inside edge and the ball hits the stumps.. 126/8
