    18.1 Parthiv's stay is over, he had got away on many occasions, but not this time, a flat delivery that rushes on outside off, he rocked back for the cut, but the zip on the ball meant he ended up slicing it straight to point, India in big trouble 79/4
    7.3 Sammy strikes, and he is pleased as he does a little jig, Shikhar lunges out to drive lazily away from the body, and spoons it to cover who tumbles forward to take a neat low catch 26/1
    7.4 well, well, Darren Sammy has brought the sparse crowd to life, he has snared Virat first ball, that harmless looking length ball that suddenly decides to nip back in sharply, Virat is caught on the crease and takes it on the pads, that looked to be going down leg, the umpire did not think so, in fact it would have bounced over as well as replays show, shocker that one but Virat is gone, what was that about the DRS again? 26/2
    15.3 run-out, Badri has to go, Indian in a bit of trouble now, driven hard wide of mid-off, Russell slides to his left and returns accurately at the striker's end, Badri had called for a single but was sent back, by the time he turned around and dived, it was too late 60/3

    21.1 straight out of the IPL is this forcing slog-swat-heave from Suresh Raina and he holes out to cover, length ball, with four down, he had no reason to play this shot, but he does, and perishes, goes for his booming favourite shot over wide long on, but gets a huge outside edge that loops tamely on the off side 88/5
    22.2 that will be the end of YK Pathan, and maybe India in this match, Lendl Simmons is engulfed in football fashion by his team-mates, and understandably so, this leap would have done van der Sar, Casillas and all those top guns proud, Yusuf got too far across to sweep a flat delivery, got it in the air but seemed to have got away as it was headed over Simmons at short midwicket, but Simmons watched it all the way, and just as it was passing him he went airborne to his right to bring it down with one hand 92/6
    40.6 Harbhajan is gone this time, the love of midwicket has consumed him, but he has more than played his part, walked across looking to flick it with the angle over midwicket, but got a leading edge that settled in to the hands of Baugh 180/7
