Harbhajan Singh to Hussey, OUT, The combo of Vijay and Dhoni get together to run out Hussey. What a turning point this is going to be. It was turned to right of silly point and Vijay lunged to make the stop. Hussey was outside the crease, looking for the single and Vijay flicked it towards the stumps, Dhoni gathered it outside off and whipped the bails off. The third umpire says that's out and the Indians mob Vijay. Did the ball slip out Dhoni's gloves as he broke the stumps. Hang on, will confirm after the replays. Replays are in: The ball hit the stumps. And so that's out. It didn't slip down to the groundbut fell on the stumps
