    41.1 stumped! Jamshed was several yards down the track to try force the ball, he misses it and is well out, but Dhoni misses it as well, he doesn't collect it cleanly, but he is fortunate to get a second chance as the ball lobs up off his gloves, taps it on to the stumps and Jamshed will have to be satisfied with 106 today 210/5
    23.5 India get the breakthrough, it's Jadeja who gets the wicket, Hafeez was in trouble playing the sweep in the previous over against Jadeja as well, this time he doesn't make contact at all and the middle stump is on the ground 141/1
    25.6 and Pakistan have lost a second, Azhar Ali is walking back, there was initially a huge lbw appeal as Ali looked to sweep that, got some glove on it and looked to be outside off as well, so Bowden turned it down, the ball rolled in the direction of square leg , not too far from the stumps, Ali wanted a single, Dhoni quickly moved to field, the batsman was stranded mid-pitch as Jamshed rightly knew there was no single, Sehwag had moved up to the stumps, Dhoni underarms it to Sehwag, and India have a second wicket 145/2
    34.3 loud appeal and given, Younis trapped lbw on the sweep, but there was a huge inside edge before the ball struck the pad in front of middle, what a shocker, what an absolute shocker from umpire Kulkarni, there has to be some way to weed these out of the game, DRS or no DRS 177/3
    35.6 that looked close, loud, long appeal, and umpire Bowden gives it, nothing wrong with the decision, Misbah looking to work it with the spin to the leg side, misses the line of the offbreak, and is hit in front of middle and off, some comeback this from India, they had no answers against Hafeez and Jamshed 182/4
    46.1 Ishant slower ball gets the wicket, 107kph, pitched up and just outside off, Malik looks to launch that over the in-field, can only chip it as far as cover, Pakistan lose their seventh 236/7
    41.3 Jadeja uis having a great time out there, another wicket for him, Kamrna Akmal has to go for a duck as he edges the ball to slip, not often that you see slip at this stage of the innings, Jadeja's team-mates are ruffling his hair in celebration, Pakistan had looked well on course for 300 not too long ago, they'll have to settle for less now 210/6

    48.1 Ishant gets another, Gul was looking to send that towards midwicket, it was not short enough for the swipe which Gul favours, the ball sneaks under the bat and hits the top of off 250/9
    47.5 short ball, 130.7kph, Ajmal goes for the pull,and top-edges it, it swirls towards Sehwag at midwicket, easy catch, Pakistan eight down, can they last the full 50? 249/8

    9.5 Junaid has been exceptional today, and here's his reward, this was perhaps not among his best deliveries, it was pitched up and wide, Gambhir looked to power that through the off side, inside-edges it onto the stumps 42/1
    14.4 they have the wicket, Sehwag is struck in front of middle by a Gul delivery that moved in sharply, Sehwag is late with his stroke, an exuberant appeal from Gul, Bowden agrees and India are 59/3 59/3
    11.6 and again in the midst of a superb spell, Junaid strikes with an ordinary ball, it was heading down the leg side, Kohli could have let it go, instead he tickles it down the leg side, Kamran Akmal - the source of so many cricket jokes over the past few years - pulls off a stunner, diving to his left to pluck that one, started moving early to anticipate that one, the dangerous Kohli is gone 55/2
    18.5 Yuvraj's struggles are over for this game, he was looking out of his depth there, the short ball from Gul, well outside off, Yuvraj goes for the pull, off the toed end of the bat and through to the keeper, Kamran accepts the straight forward chance, Yuvraj swings his bat in disgust before wlaking off 70/4
    25.6 Is Raina stumped? he looks tense as we wait for the third umpire's decision, he was out of the crease to try push the ball towards the off side, it was wide outside off, he misses and he can't balance himself properly, still tries to get his back leg in, but it is still in the air as the bails come off, India in a huge hole here 95/5

    31.3 and another one bites the dust, can Shoaib Malik ever not make a contribution against India? Ashwin was charging down the ground and looking to thrash the ball through the off side, he misses the ball and is yards out as Akmal collects the ball and takes off the bails, only one result in this game now (apologies to SRJ fans) 103/6
    39.2 length ball, Jadeja looks to thump that over mid-on, can't get it high enough, an overhead catch for Junaid at mid-on who takes a leaping catch 131/7
    39.4 and Pakistan are two away from a famous victory, the magician Ajmal is too good for Bhuvneshwar, lbw, that drifts away and spins in catching Bhuveshwar on the crease, a bit of doubt whether that would have taken leg stump, but the umpire is satisfied 131/8
    39.6 three in the over for Ajmal, India are nine down, local hero Dinda is the latest to go, that pitched outside leg stump, but the Indian umpire is again convinced, he lifts the finger 132/9
    47.6 what a delivery to finish it off, a ripping yorker takes out the off stump, Junaid screaming in joy, Pakistan take the series 2-0, they have been a cut above in this series, India had only two defeats in 24 home ODIs before Pakistan arrived, now they have two in two 165/10
