View dismissal WTS Porterfield* c Harbhajan Singh b Yuvraj Singh 75 146 104 6 1 72.11
37.1 50.5 mph, the drinks break strikes. Porterfield is gone to one of Yuvraj's poorer balls today. He is turning things around for India here, and this performance could force Dhoni to rethink whether he needs two specialist spinners. This, though, was a shoddy delivery. Short and turning away slowly, Porterfield rocks back and spanks it hard. Sadly, he finds Harbhajan at cover. 160/6
View dismissal PR Stirling b Khan 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
0.4 83.3 mph, that's a Zaheer special, and Stirling has lost his stumps. 134 kph, angles across the batsman at a good length, inviting the drive and then zipping inwards of the track to crash into the pitch. Stirling went for the check-drive without moving his feet across or forward and the ball gladly snaked through the bat-pad gap. 1/1
View dismissal EC Joyce c †Dhoni b Khan 4 8 5 1 0 80.00
2.3 82.7 mph, this is stupendous from Zaheer. He's been moving them away like a charm all along, and then just for fun, he gets one to jag back off the seam. Joyce was obviously expecting another one that moved away, and in an attempt to cover the deviation was groping outside the line. Too bad. Zaheer got it to go the other way and kiss the inside edge on the way to Dhoni 9/2
View dismissal NJ O'Brien run out (Kohli/†Dhoni) 46 93 78 3 0 58.97
26.5 Harbhajan Singh to Porterfield, and is that a run-out? the bowling has looked limp, but Virat Kolhi's fielding has brought the breakthrough, Porterfield pushed the ball towards cover, where Kohli swooped on the ball and fired in the throw, it was a bit wide but MS Dhoni breaks the stumps in a jiffy to catch O'Brien short, that was great work from Dhoni, and a stubborn stand is finally broken 122/3
View dismissal AR White c †Dhoni b Yuvraj Singh 5 8 10 0 0 50.00
29.1 Yuvraj Singh strikes, gives the ball loads of air, pitching on a length and it turns away, well outside off, White reaches for it and gets the outside edge and a regulation catch for Dhoni, who throws the ball up in delight 129/4
View dismissal KJ O'Brien c & b Yuvraj Singh 9 14 13 1 0 69.23
33.4 50.9 mph, a massive cheer from the crowd as Kevin O'Brien departs, a soft, soft dismissal, an innocuous length ball is patted back to the bowler, who accepts the gift, Yuvraj gets his second, and Ireland have lost a huge wicket 147/5
View dismissal AR Cusack lbw b Yuvraj Singh 24 49 30 3 0 80.00
43.4 57.2 mph, India have called for a lbw review here. Has Yuvi bagged a five-for? Lands back of a length on off stump and straightens, but the batsman is well down the track, his backfoot is a foot outside the crease and his front foot is well down the track. Will the 2.5 metres come into the picture? According to (a potentially inaccurate) HawkEye, since he is more than 2.5 m forward, it was hitting off and middle at a comfortable height. Right, on replays, umpire Tucker has reversed his decision and Yuvraj has five. Bangalore roars. Yuvraj puts out his hand, with all five fingers spread out. Dhoni just smiles. Good stuff this. 184/8
View dismissal JF Mooney lbw b Yuvraj Singh 5 19 17 0 0 29.41
41.5 Mooney reviews an lbw appeal upheld by umpire Tucker. Yuvraj continues to impress - this is not part-time stuff. Looped up just outside off, and turning in sharply as Mooney presses half forward to defend. He did not get his pad out of the line, and was struck in front of off. Only height could have saved him, but the tracker predicts this to be clipping the top of middle. On your way, Mooney. 178/7
View dismissal DT Johnston lbw b Patel 17 38 20 2 0 85.00
47.5 85.3 mph, Given lbw, and Johnston reviews it immediately. Munaf got some prodigious inward dip on this, it landed on middle and you could see Johnston's middle and off stumps as he went for the flick and missed. The predictive path of HawkEye says that is hitting leg stump. The umpire's call stays, and Ireland have been bowled out. 207/10
View dismissal GH Dockrell c †Dhoni b Khan 3 19 10 0 0 30.00
46.6 Dhoni may not be considered among the better keepers in the game, but he's been stunning today. Full delivery outside off, it was there for the drive and Dockrell went for the off side with a flamboyant carve. He ended getting a very thick outside edge that seemed headed for third man. Someone forgot to inform the horizontal Indian captain. He was fully stretched to the right and pouched it inches above the ground. And he doesn't celebrate. Calm as always, flicks the ball away and heads to Zaheer for the celebrations. 201/9

View dismissal SR Tendulkar lbw b Dockrell 38 91 56 4 0 67.85
20.1 The left-arm charm works. Sachin is out. Dockrell has removed the big man. Innocuous delivery. Tossed up on middle stump and straightening. Sachin went down on a knee to play the sweep through square leg. He missed and was struck on the right thigh. He discussed long and hard with Kohli is it was worth reviewing. In the end he decided against it, and just as well. That was plumb, heading for leg and middle. Could not have been plumber if he was working with pipes and taps. Peterson, Yuvraj and now Dockrell... What's it with left-arm spinners today?! 87/3

5.2 79.1 mph, no chicken dance this time, but Johnston has struck again, Gambhir is gone, that wasn't a great delivery, and it wasn't a great shot either, length ball on legstump, Gambhir looks to tuck it past short fine, he can only chip it to the fielder there, the Chinnaswamy is silenced 24/2
View dismissal V Kohli run out (Dockrell/KJ O'Brien) 34 82 53 3 0 64.15
23.4 White to Yuvraj Singh, Is this game turning? Kohli is run out. Not the first time we have seen poor running from the Indian top-order. Short ball, turning away from Yuvraj and he goes for the cut. He played it pretty square, in that area where no one is sure whose call it is. Kohli thought there was a single, and ran almost all the way down. However, he seemed to stutter on the way. Yuvraj was initially sold on the single, but once he saw Kohli hesitate, he himself stopped. The throw to the bowler's end was not the most accurate, but it was good enough to catch Kohli well short. 100/4
