View dismissal SC Ganguly* b Vettori 56 46 8 1 121.73
11.5 What a loverly delivery! Slow. Really slow. It was looped across. Ganguly had to wait and wait on the front foot and tried to adjust by attempting a slog sweep .. but he had completed the shot far too early. The ball gently eased towards the middle stump. 104/2
View dismissal CH Gayle b Bhatia 40 21 5 2 190.47
10.2 Done in by the slower one! Rajat keeps faith on his slower ones and slips in one full and on the off stump line. Gayle, who went over long-on last ball, tried to slog this one too square on the leg side and that led to his down fall. The bat whooshed past the ball .. Clatter! 94/1
View dismissal BB McCullum run out (Bhatia/Vettori) 6 7 0 0 85.71
13.1 Vettori to Tiwary, McCullum is run out A big wicket. It was pushed towards deep square-leg .. Rajat Bhatia rushes in and fires in the throw to Dan, who very calmly breaks the stumps.
