View dismissal HH Gibbs lbw b Pathan 8 15 10 1 0 80.00
4.1 flatter delivery from Pathan and Gibbs looking to swing it across the line, misses it and gets hit on the pad, loud appeal and given by the umpire, Gibbs is furious with the decision and he keeps speaking as he walks off. 34/1
View dismissal AC Gilchrist*† c Pathan b Jadeja 39 41 35 5 2 111.42
9.5 Yusuf! full and on the stumps, Gilchrist drives across towards short midwicket where Pathan dives low to his right and takes a stunner. Jadeja nets the big fish. 58/3
View dismissal AA Bilakhia c Trivedi b Harwood 1 6 5 0 0 20.00
5.1 And he strikes first ball! Two slips in place and Harwood pitches it short of a length, the one that comes in with the angle. Bilakhia goes for the pull but gets nowhere, more of an instinctive shot. Ball clips the top edge and balloons up towards mid-on where Trivedi makes no mistake. It's a dream start 35/2

View dismissal GC Smith c Shoaib Ahmed b Edwards 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 short outside the off stump and Smith upper cuts high in the air and down to third man and Shoaib takes the catch low in front of him. 0/1
View dismissal SA Asnodkar run out (Gibbs/Venugopal Rao) 0 4 1 0 0 0.00
0.3 from Edwards, back of a length delivery and Asnodkar pushes softly to the off side and Carseldine comes on for the single, Asnodkar responds very late and Gibbs picks up the ball and throws it to RP Singh, who runs the batsman out. 1/2
View dismissal LA Carseldine lbw b Venugopal Rao 39 40 32 6 0 121.87
9.5 big inside edge and umpire Asnani upholds an LBW shout! Rao fires one in and Carseldine goes back to cut, ball clips the inside edge and thuds into the pad - loud appeal for lbw and the finger goes up. That was one of the biggest inside edge I have seen given out, he smashed it on to the pad. To make matters worse, the ball after taking the edge, hit the pad outside the line of the leg stump. 57/5
View dismissal NV Ojha c Gibbs b Singh 0 6 6 0 0 0.00
1.6 cut hard to Gibbs at short point, the fielder was well placed there by Gilchrist as Ojha was looking to cut each and every delivery, well done. 3/3
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Smith b Venugopal Rao 12 28 17 0 1 70.58
9.1 And Jadeja departs! Rao starts off with a fuller delivery on the middle and off stump line, bowled from round the wicket. Jadeja comes down the track and lofts it straight to Dwyane Smith at long-on, the idea was to go over the fielder but ... 54/4
View dismissal SK Warne* c †Gilchrist b Ojha 21 29 17 0 2 123.52
14.1 And Warne throws it away! He charges down to Ojha and unleashes a wild swing, ball clips the edge and balloons up towards short cover, Gilchrist calls for it and nicely settles under it. Could this be a turning point? 93/6
