    8.4 Gone! Too adventurous? Third aerial shot in the over. two of those were wide enough of mid-on, but this delivery was even wider, making him go into the crowded off side. Guptill went with the drive, and found Yuvraj Singh at cover 62/1
    13.2 big, big wicket! McCullum was looking very good here. He tried to go over short midwicket here, but got too close to this full delivery, thus not getting enough elevation. Ashwin is jubilant 91/3
    10.1 No. 2 for Nehra in his second over. How, who looked loose outside off during the short stay, succumbs. It is a regulation delivery angled across him, but How hangs his bat out, away from the body. The edge is taken, and snapped low by Yusuf Pathan at a wide first slip 70/2
    37.1 plumb lbw first ball! A nothing shot really! Moves too far across, and also seems to have told himself to not play the forceful shot first ball. And the bat face closes too early, missing the ball, and he is caught dead in plumb. Tame end to what was shaping up to be an important innings of struggle followed by flourish 210/5
    29.4 he is gone! Goes for the same chip over midwicket, but the ball is a bit too straight, and is also turning in, which makes him drag it a bit squarer than he wants and he finds Tiwary on the boundary 170/4

    42.6 bowled him! Pathan is ecstatic. Vettori looks to pull this one from the leg-and-middle line, but it is not short enough. DV misses, YKP hits 249/6
    44.3 No. 3 for YKP. He is over the moon. Mills goes for the big shot this time, the slog sweep, and Yusuf keeps firing them in. Mills misses, the ball hits the thigh pad outside the leg line, and then ricochets onto the stumps 251/7

    9.4 and what a way to get out after a missed run-out, an edge through slips! It was short, wide, juicy, and Gambhir has cut it straight to Guptill at point. Throat high. taken. Gambhir can't believe it 67/1
    19.3 NMac is on fire here. Slows this one up, Patel comes down the track and goes for the big straight hit. Not quite close enough to the pitch of the ball and ends up skying it to long-on where substitute Williamson completes a tumbling catch 108/4
    9.6 McKay has two! Kohli is gone for a duck after having scored 50 or more in his four previous innings. McKay's energy shows as he bowls another bouncer, angled across Kohli, who goes for the hook, gets a chunky top edge to Mills at long leg. New Zealand are right back 68/2
    17.4 and just when he started looking good, Yuvraj is gone! Goes for the pull again to a ball that is not quite short, gets zero elevation and finds short midwicket 103/3
    33.2 the crowd is stunned into silence! Slower ball, Sharma saw it early, and looked to go over mid-off, but ended up smashing it straight down his throat. Vettori did well to hold onto it because it was hit very hard at it. Just couldn't get the elevation there 188/5
