View dismissal G Gambhir b M Morkel 8 15 12 1 0 66.66
3.3 91.1 mph, bowled him, off the inside edge! Middle stump is flat on the ground. Morkel delivered at 146kph, the length was a bit full to be staying in the crease to, Gambhir tried to make room and cut but the ball thudded on to his bat and then on to the stumps 23/1
View dismissal V Sehwag b Peterson 17 25 14 1 1 121.42
5.3 50.2 mph, bowled him! Sehwag's six and out! He came down the pitch once again and swung in hope across the line. The ball was much slower. Sehwag was beaten by flight and the pace and Peterson hit off stump 36/3
View dismissal V Kohli c †de Villiers b Kallis 2 5 6 0 0 33.33
4.5 83.1 mph, caught behind! Kohli moved across his stumps to a short of a length ball that climbed on him and he ended up gloving the glance, AB moved quickly to his left and caught it. India in trouble now. Kohli was cramped for room by how much that ball rose 30/2
View dismissal RG Sharma lbw b Peterson 25 48 27 2 0 92.59
15.6 53.8 mph, lbw! Rohit tries to sweep one that is much too full on off stump, he misses and is absolutely plumb, he goes after failing to get out of third gear, 25 off 27 balls isn't good enough 112/5
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh b M Morkel 21 18 15 1 2 140.00
9.6 74.2 mph, bowled him! Morkel bowled a full ball and it was a little slower too. Yuvraj tried to flick and missed, he lost his off stump 68/4
View dismissal SK Raina run out (Botha/†de Villiers) 45 45 34 5 0 132.35
19.6 from Kallis, the slower ball ball around off stump, Raina drives along the ground to long off and runs the single, Dhoni sprints back for the second, the throw is to the striker's end, where Raina dives full stretch with his bat outstretched. He was so far out that AB had enough time to miss the first attempt at breaking the stumps and do it on the second. Raina was just short 152/6

View dismissal HM Amla c Sehwag b Khan 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 84.6 mph, oh gone second ball! What a start for Zaheer. A length ball just outside off and Amla nicks off to first slip who takes a good catch down low to his left, claiming it with two hands, a smart grab. Did just enough to shape away from Amla who looked to punch a length ball angled across off stump, it was a healthy edge and well caught 0/1
View dismissal JH Kallis c Sharma b Pathan 6 16 8 1 0 75.00
3.3 85.7 mph, caught Sharma 16/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers*† b Yuvraj Singh 13 27 13 2 0 100.00
6.1 61.0 mph, and it worked immediately as de Villiers chops on. Yuvraj strikes again! It was very slow around middle and off, de Villiers waited in the crease for it but ended up blocking it onto the base of off stump, poor way to go but India take another 46/3
View dismissal F du Plessis c Raina b Yuvraj Singh 65 40 38 6 2 171.05
12.4 58.7 mph, goes again but this is too straight and caught at long off the timing was similar to the previous ball but this was not placed well and straight to the fielder. Went down the wicket again to find the rope but didn't get it into the gap, another strike for Yuvraj 95/4
View dismissal JP Duminy c Gambhir b Balaji 16 39 23 0 0 69.56
14.6 length ball and swept to deep square leg Picked out the fielder on the on side boundary, got down and tried to sweep it around the corner, got it flat and hard but not the elevation and the fielder came in and took a straightforward catch 107/5
View dismissal F Behardien c Raina b Khan 13 26 12 1 0 108.33
17.2 82.8 mph, slower ball, plays with hard hands down the ground, chipped up and it carries to long on running in off the rope to claim a comfortable catch 127/6
View dismissal RJ Peterson b Khan 10 17 10 1 0 100.00
17.3 82.7 mph, oh lovely, two in two as Peterson is yorked. Perfect inswinging yorker onto the base of off stump as Peterson backed away and tried to play into the off side, done by a beauty 127/7
View dismissal JA Morkel b Balaji 10 12 6 0 1 166.66
19.2 80.9 mph, another slower ball, this time fuller outside off and he drags it on so India back on top. Backed away and tried to go off side, got a thin edge onto the middle stump, was reaching out for it and it came off a thin bottom edge 145/9
View dismissal J Botha c Raina b Ashwin 8 6 5 0 1 160.00
18.5 57.8 mph, goes again but this time find long off who goes to his left to take a two-handed catch at head height, wasn't quite to the pitch and reached out for it, slapping it almost wide enough of long off but not far enough 138/8

View dismissal M Morkel b Balaji 6 2 3 0 1 200.00
19.5 81.6 mph, got him!! Full onto the off stump and Morkel swings and misses, is cleaned up and India win it by a run! What an ending. After a terrible long hop, Balaji has responded really well there with a fast, straight yorker that was too good for Morkel 151/10
