View dismissal V Sehwag c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Abdur Rauf 49 64 33 6 2 148.48
11.1 huge shout for a catch behind decision and after consultation with the square leg umpire it has been referred to third umpire. It is a clean catch. Sehwag tried to dab a length delivery outside off stump to third man and it ran off the face of the bat.

View dismissal SK Raina c Salman Butt b Abdur Rauf 1 12 6 0 0 16.66
11.6 Another wicket goes down. Pakistan roar back into the game. It was dug in short and Raina went for the pull but had to fetch it from outside off and top edged it to Salman at deep midwicket region. Raina had jumped to defend the last two deliveries but decided to go after this one. Enter Dhoni. 91/3
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Iftikhar Anjum 37 38 32 4 1 115.62
18.2 Sarfraz takes a flying catch. Yuvraj has to head back to the hutch. Yuvraj tried to late cut a short-of-length delivery leaving him, got a thick edge and Sarfraz flew to his left to take the catch. Super stuff from the man who has replaced Kamran Akmal. Yuvraj had not moved his feet; he just bent the back leg and tried to steer it. Fatal. 129/4

7.6 IK Pathan to Nasir Jamshed, Oh what a mix up. Butt is run out. Agony for Pakistan while the Indians get into a huddle of joy. It was steered to left of third man and Gambhir fired in the throw. Butt had turned for the second, only to be sent back by his new opening partner and couldn't make it back in time. 65/1

18.5 from YK Pathan, flat, on a length outside off, Jamshed plays it towards point, go for a quick single , the throw came in at the non-striker's end but Nasir reaches in time but he is down on the ground now. Cramps. The physio is out there. 121/1
