Patel to Dhoni, OUT, timber! Patel gets a wicket with his fifth delivery, a full and flat yorker which hits the base of leg stump after Dhoni backs away and plays another of those whips to leg, thats just reward for whats been an excellent final over, a great way to keep these two batsmen quite at the death

India 160/4   MS Dhoni 9 (5b 1x6)
