    15.2 lbw! Watson pitches on a good length around middle stump. He's bowled that with a scrambled seam and the ball cuts away from the right-hander off the pitch. Vijay plays off the back foot and tries to defend. He plays inside the line and gets hit on the knee roll of the right pad. Plumb. 89/2
    2.2 And he is gone now. What a moment this. He was dropped by Huss last over but he is gone now. It kicked up from short of length and curved away from the off-stump line. Sehwag opened the bat-face and tried to steer it past gully. The ball flew to right of Paine who lunges to his right to take a very good catch. The game splits wide open. 17/1

    28.6 Done in by the straight one! It landed on the off stump line and went on straight. Pujara played for the turn and pushed inside the line. The ball skidded on to hit the off stump. Hauritz pumps his fist. What a knock, though. You wait five years for the call from selectors. You keep scoring runs.You finally get that call. You wait for six hours to bat and you get a grubber, a shooter. You then get promoted ahead of your idol Rahul Dravid in the second innings. And play a super knock. Sometimes, dreams do come true. Sometimes.. 146/3
