View dismissal GC Smith st †Dhoni b Muralitharan 30 33 2 0 90.90
12.2 stumped, didn't even appeal, Smith walked, spun away just as he tried to connect a slog-sweep, missed, and Dhoni dislodged the bails pretty quickly, Smith was outside the crease well after the stumps were disturbed 75/3
View dismissal NV Ojha b Morkel 0 2 0 0 0.00
0.3 timber, bowled at around 137 kmph, bowled on a length on middle and off, moved away a touch, Ojha had made room, too much in hindsight and failed to make contact as it zipped through to crash into offstump. 1/1
View dismissal SA Asnodkar lbw b Muralitharan 26 25 3 1 104.00
8.5 swung across the line and was trapped in front, came round the wicket, was the overspinner, landed fullish on middle and leg, tried to sweep it square, was rapped on the pads and Dharmasena had no doubt 54/2
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Raina b Balaji 27 19 3 1 142.10
14.1 slower one bowled full outside off, landed full, he picked it well, made room to slice it to Raina at point, was dying on him but he dived forward to cup that inches from the ground, well done 92/4
View dismissal YK Pathan c Oram b Jakati 7 11 0 1 63.63
15.5 sucked him in, flighted it on the off, landed full, went for the slog-sweep well in front of square, the intended area was long-on and he got the direction right but way more elevation than he would have wanted, Oram judged it well and for a moment it seemed he would go over the boundary but retained his balance to take it inches inside the ropes 100/5
View dismissal LA Carseldine run out (Balaji) 9 8 1 0 112.50
16.4 Raina to Raut, run out, Balaji, you beauty, dropped it short of him at cover and called for a single, Carseldine at the non-striker's end had backed up too far by the time Raut sent him back, Balaji waited, took aim and threw down the stumps to find him miles short 104/6
View dismissal AS Raut st †Dhoni b Jakati 7 5 0 1 140.00
17.2 stumped, drew him out of the crease with the flight, spun away as he tried to smack that inside-out over cover, missed and Dhoni had no difficulty clipping the bails, the batsman didn't even bother making it back 111/7
