42.5

Nehra to Marsh, OUT, Marsh's fine innings comes to an end courtesy a good catch by Gambhir at long-on. Marsh had lofted the length delivery high towards long-on where Gambhir back-pedaled before lunging towards his right to take it. It was Marsh's maiden ODI hundred, surely many more to come.
