19.2

MM Patel to Kumar, OUT, the change of pace does the trick, slower ball bowled full on a length on middle and off, Praveen, predictably, tries to smash that out of Cape Town but didn't pick it well, ended up lofting it really high and Munaf had to take a few steps to his left to take a well-judged catch, took a while to come down

19.4

MM Patel to Dravid, OUT, excellent catch, slower ball bowled short outside off, Dravid made room and struck it well, slapping it past extra cover, but Warne's right at the edge of the circle and stretches and dives to his left to pluck that superbly

19.5

MM Patel to Vinay Kumar, FOUR, shot! Bowled full on middle, he's already walked across, scoops it well over short fine for a boundary

19.6

MM Patel to Vinay Kumar, FOUR, slower ball bowled full outside off, makes room and slices it over point, some atrocious fielding by the deep-point fielder there who palms it to the ropes sliding to his left
