View dismissal AC Gilchrist b Singh 12 3 5 3 0 240.00
0.5 Two fours and then he is cleaned up. The middle stump has gone for a walk. A screaming yorker, on the middle stump line and Gilchrist plays all around it. RP is pumped up and Gilchrist walks back to the hutch. Frenetic start to this Twenty20 showdown. 12/1
View dismissal ML Hayden b Harbhajan Singh 17 34 19 1 2 89.47
6.6 dragged on! The chinese cut goes awry. Full and outside off stump, Hayden tries to thrash it through cover but the bat comes outside the line and he gets a fatal inside edge. Hard luck. 60/2
View dismissal RT Ponting* b Pathan 76 79 53 13 0 143.39
18.6 Another batsman drags it on. Full in length, on the off and middle, angling away, Ponting goes for a ambitious pull and gets a fatal inside edge. 158/5
View dismissal A Symonds run out (Harbhajan Singh/Yuvraj Singh) 20 23 18 1 0 111.11
13.1 Harbhajan Singh to Ponting, what drama. Ponting almost gives a return catch off a leading edge and as it turns out it is Symonds who is run out. It was floated in the air, full and it curved away at the last minute, Ponting tried to play across the line and got a leading edge. The ball lobbed up towards say .. short cover and Harbhajan couldn't reach it. Huge hesitation as Ponting sets off for a run before stopping and again proceeding before stopping again! Symonds was sold a dummy and couldn't get back to the non-striker's end. Harbhajan Singh threw the ball to Yuvraj who takes the bails off. Chaos. 110/3
View dismissal BJ Hodge b Pathan 2 7 6 0 0 33.33
14.6 The middle stump has been pegged back and settles into Dhoni's gloves. Length delivery, no slow off cutter this time, and Hodge goes for a pull but misses it completely. Gone. Hodge's nightmarish tour ends. 116/4
