    7.6 bowled him! That was beautifully done by Ashwin. Once again, bowls de Villiers with a change of pace. Was much slower than his previous deliveries, and de Villiers had to reach out to drive that. Didn't turn as much as he expected, and it beat his outside edge and hit top of off 49/3
    1.6 got him! Fired that at the pads and Amla went for the flick. Didn't middle it, and it popped up in the direction of leg slip, where Rohit grabbed it after a juggle 13/1
    5.5 gone! Comes down the track again, sees a bit of flight. Looks to hit over the bowler again but doesn't quite time it - change of angle forced him to open his bat face - and Mohit, running backwards and to his right from mid-off, takes a superbly judged catch 38/2

    14.3 length ball, slides on with the angle and utterly beats Behardien, who's stuck on the crease, expecting turn. In the end, he has no time to respond, and the ball strikes his front pad plumb in front. No hesitation from the umpire there 76/4
