    31.5 quicker delivery, wraps Cook on the pads and he is given out. Cook can consider himself unlucky as that pitched comfortably outside the leg stump line. It didn't turn as much as he expected, played outside the line and was hit in the front of the middle stump. But that's a bad decision by the umpire. 132/2
    9.4 caught at third-man! Oh there comes a wicket! Bell, from nowhere, decides to give Ishant a charge and tries to hit it straight down the ground. But he doesn't really get to the pitch of the ball and it takes a healthy top-edge that goes high towards third-man where Bhuvi takes a well-judged catch 37/1
    45.5 gets his yorker right finally and takes out the middle stump. Not much emotion from the bowler. KP was looking for hitting it over the cover boundary and was in no mood to block. He misses and loses his wicket. 220/5
    33.6 caught at long-on! A nothing shot from Morgan! It was a fuller ball and he tries to chip it over mid-on but gets a leading edge. Yuvraj has all the time to run a few paces backwards and take a comfortable catch. From nowhere, India has two wickets now. 138/3
    36.3 flighted delivery on the middle and leg, and of all the places he could have driven this to, Samit drives it straight back to the bowler who accepts the catch gleefully. 142/4

    48.3 caught at point! Third time unlucky. He makes room again, but instead of following him, the bowler fires it wide outside off. Buttler had to stretch to get to the ball and in the end, he manages a tame top-edge to the fielder at point 241/6
    48.5 caught at point! Another one for Jadeja. It was a flatter, quicker delivery outside off and Bresnan went for a cut, he got a top-edge and the ball floats to the hands of the point fielder, much in the same way as Buttler a while ago 241/7

    5.3 short of length delivery and Gambhir has done what he often does, he wafts outside the off stump without any feet movement and is taken by the keeper. He walks back in frustration, as he didn't really get a bat on that. Second umpiring error of the day. 20/1

    31.1 and it takes on one ball for Finn to make an impact! He bowls it on a length, the ball cuts back into Rohit, who dare I say, was a bit lazy in his defence, gets hit on the knee roll and Steve Davis raises his finger. 158/4
    16.5 success in the first over for Tredwell! He gets the big wicket of Kohli. That was tossed up on off stump and Kohli drives it softly back to the bowler. It went low to Tredwell who makes no mistake and completes the catch. Kohli walks away disappointed at that shot 72/2
    22.4 Tredwell takes out Yuvraj Singh playing the sweep shot!! It was slower, pitches on off and middle, and straightens just a touch to hit Yuvraj in front. The batsman was down very early and the ball arrived much slower beating him on his sweep shot. Tredwell seems to have worked Yuvraj out in the series. Big wicket. 90/3

    39.1 caught at backward point! the luck has changed for Dernbach and could be this wicket that turns the game! It was short, it was wide, it was asking to be hit and Dhoni smashes it straight to the backward point fielder to add some spice to the game. 213/5
