23.4

Wahab Riaz to Sehwag, OUT, Cramped for room and he is gone! It came in off a length, towards middle and off, from round the stumps angle and Sehwag tried to stay adjacent to the line and cut it to third man but the extra bounce meant he can only edge it to Akmal. It was a leg spinning slower one that broke back in sharply with bounce!

V Sehwag c †Kamran Akmal b Wahab Riaz 89 (126m 76b 13x4 1x6) SR: 117.10

India 174/2   Yuvraj Singh 7* (5b 1x4)   Wahab Riaz 5.4-0-49-2

Shahid Afridi to YK Pathan, OUT, he's holed out, he tossed that up there, Yusuf stood tall and tried to whack that over long-off but he's struck that straight to Rao, hardly got his timing right through this brief stay, 12-ball 3 for Yusuf on debut, Afridi strikes

36.3

Shahid Afridi to RG Sharma, OUT, cleans him up with a slider. It was slow through the air, landed on middle and leg and skidded towards leg. Rohit thought it would turn and was getting ready to cut to the off side and in the end, just managed to chop it on to his leg stump. Afridi points his finger to the skies and Rohit heads back to the hutch.

RG Sharma b Shahid Afridi 9 (28m 27b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Sohail Tanvir to Dhoni, OUT, trapped him in front with a full toss. Dhoni took couple of steps down the track and tried to swing it across the line, missed, and was hit in front of middle and leg. On the back leg. Was it going down leg, though? Any way it doesn't matter. He is out.

India 269/5   Yuvraj Singh 55* (53b 3x4 3x6)   Sohail Tanvir 7.5-0-40-1
