View dismissal BB McCullum b Vettori 43 52 37 8 0 116.21
10.3 bowled this time! He was trying to cut deliveries from the stump, and was getting away but this time it was pitched further up, gets an inside edge on to the stumps. 95/1
View dismissal G Gambhir* c Appanna b Khan 93 91 51 9 5 182.35
18.4 Oh oh! Gambhir went for the six over long-off, it was the right delivery to attempt it as well, pitched up with just the right amount of width but the timing went slightly off and that is caught at long-off. End of an excellent innings from the captain. 175/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c Patel b Vinay Kumar 41 43 27 1 3 151.85
19.2 gone, caught! Finally they hold on to a good catch, but that is a strange shot coming from a batsman who has been hitting them so well in front of the wicket. Tries to paddle sweep it away, does not hit the middle of the bat and it has been caught at short fine-leg. 182/3
View dismissal YK Pathan c Dilshan b Vinay Kumar 7 7 4 0 1 175.00
19.6 that is a full-toss and Pathan swings it away and that has been caught a few yards in front of the boundary at deep square-leg. Pathan waited for the umpire to call it a no-ball but he does not. 190/4

View dismissal TM Dilshan c Bhatia b Pathan 1 2 3 0 0 33.33
0.6 gone, caught! Pathan has eked out the wicket of Dilshan, a big, big one at that. Dilshan went after Pathan in the same manner he had tried to do off the first ball, does not get the middle and lobs it back to mid-off, who takes a good catch. 2/1
View dismissal CH Gayle c †McCullum b Shukla 86 90 58 7 6 148.27
19.5 edged and it has been given out, caught behind. Outside the off-stump and Gayle wanted to go for the drive, takes the edge and McCullum takes a good catch. 143/6
View dismissal V Kohli lbw b Kallis 18 20 19 3 0 94.73
5.2 gone, lbw and Kohli has delivered a mouthful at nobody in particular. It was a good length ball, played from the back foot in an attempt to carve it through the leg-side but misses it and that's hit his pads, given out lbw. Kohli waited for an eternity before trudging off, a scene from the days of Inzamam-ul-Haq. 34/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Shukla b Kallis 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
5.3 gone first ball for a duck! AB de Villiers gets a short ball from Kallis and wanted to lap it away to the leg-side, gets a top-edge and spoons up easily for the fielder at mid-on! 34/3
View dismissal SS Tiwary c Gambhir b Bhatia 19 32 22 1 1 86.36
12.5 but Bhatia has his revenge off the very next ball, slower one outside the off-stump and Tiwary wanted to go over long-on, it gripped a little and he ended up slicing it to point where the captain takes a simple catch. 77/4
View dismissal MA Agarwal b Narine 10 21 13 1 0 76.92
17.2 bowled him! Gone off a quicker one. He was on the back-foot after seeing it was a shorter one but yet again, he fails to read which way was it going to turn and it goes through his defences. 112/5
