    7.6 gone leg-before, Shami giving the crowd reason to cheer, the pressure of tight bowling making Cook walk across trying to flick a length ball from off through square leg, it straightens appreciably, Cook misses, is hit in line with off and middle, that looked alright 24/1
    15.2 Bhuvneshwar striking now, Bell trying to cut one that moved in from a length, clear outside edge and Dhoni has a sharp take standing up 68/3
    14.5 Ishant has the big wicket, KP is walking back shaking his head, after standing rooted in disbelief for several seconds, he was on the walk down the pitch, the ball reared and straightened from back of a length, Dhoni went up immediately, there was a noise, need more replays, had to be bat hitting pad, ball brushed the trouser too on its way to Dhoni, no edge at all, KP's form bowing to his bad luck 68/2
    36.4 got him now, the wide delivery working for Ishant third time, fuller this time, and Root was drawn forward at it, played away from the body with an open face, hint of away movement, and and a tumbling Dhoni snaps up the outside edge, steadying stand broken 145/7
    23.4 Morgan's fallen to the reverse sweep, he's spooned it in the air from around leg stump to backward point, what a waste of an important wicket, which it always is when all these cute shots don't come off 97/4
    24.2 this won't do Kieswetter's case any good, lunging forward, leaving a gap between bat and pad, and Jadeja;s flighted arm ball has sneaked in, excellent delivery but Kieswetter not helping himself by bringing the bat down from that angle 98/5
    24.6 that looked plumb, Jadeja and his arm ball on fire, tossed up, drawing the batsman forward, Patel playing for the straightening, the ball carries in to hit him in front of off 98/6

    37.2 classic from Ashwin, what a refreshing delivery coming from him, tossed up outside off, inviting the drive, Bresnan feeling for it away from the body, and it spins in to bowl him through the gate, Graeme Swann would have been proud, so would have been Prasanna 145/8

    41.5 Finn has picked out deep midwicket with the slog sweep and Dhoni is clapping with the big gloves, one of those days for him where everything has worked, after all the defending, England's attempt to get some runs ends in a wicket 155/9
    42.2 Jadeja ending the innings with another arm ball, all three of his wickets have come with it, pushed through on a good length, angled in, and enough of a gate on Dernbach's forward push to hit the stumps 155/10

    17.3 Gambhir gives it away against spin, charges out and heaves it wide of mid on, who takes a few steps to his left, and takes a head-high catch quite safely 78/2
    2.5 Kochi all over again for Rahane and Finn, who rips in a good length delivery through the young batsman's gate, Rahane seemed to have got slightly forward this time, but still left too much between bat and pad, off stump is uprooted 11/1
