View dismissal PA Patel c †Gilchrist b Edwards 0 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 and Fidel strikes second up, and three matches ina row we have the scorecard reading 0 for 1, this was fast, 142ks, bouncing into his ribs, and Parthiv gloves it down the leg side. Unlucky way to get out, but it was a good delivery, surprising Parthiv with the bounce 0/1
View dismissal ML Hayden c Sharma b Ojha 49 35 8 0 140.00
12.6 what a big over from Ojha, two wickets, and it is Hayden now, the big fish, this is bowled full, into the pads, Hayden is looking to charge down, but is cramped by it, and is too close to the ball, so doesn't get elevation, and it goes straight to midwicket 103/4
View dismissal SK Raina c & b Sharma 25 19 1 2 131.57
6.5 finally they hold on to a catch, and what a catch it is, thrown up to Raian who absolutely murders it back to Sharma, low and fast, there is not even a second to react, but Sharma bends low and catches it smoothly, throws it miles in the air to celebrate, and what a catch it was, no lesser celebration would to justice to it 64/2
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Shoaib Ahmed b Ojha 22 22 1 1 100.00
12.3 Ojha gets another one, gets this to rip, Dhoni has stepped out, is short of the pitch, he is looking extra cover, but this slices off the face and lobs straight to sweeper-cover 102/3
JDP Oram not out 41 29 4 2 141.37
View dismissal JA Morkel c Singh b Venugopal Rao 13 7 1 1 185.71
16.5 what price justice indeed, this is a much better hit, off the middle, slog sweep, goes where he wants it to, towards deep midwicket, and finds the boundary fielder, poetic justice 129/5
View dismissal S Badrinath c & b Singh 8 9 1 0 88.88
19.5 and this was always coming, just back of a length, Badri throws his bat at it, top-edges it, it goes miles in the air, and RP catches it on the adjacent pitch 165/6
