    9.1 Ishant strikes first ball. It kicked up high from short of length, Watson was pressing forward before he tried go back and dab it to third man. However, he was done in by the extra bounce. At the last minute, he tried to adjust by taking out the bottom hand off the handle but only succeeded in guiding the ball straight and low to Tendulkar at first slip 41/2
    4.6 The leg stump goes for a walk and PK is thrilled. It was fuller this time and the ball cut back in from outside off. Paine went for the big swing over mid-on and edged it to his leg stump. 20 for 1. 20/1
    10.1 trapped right in front. PK has taken out the big wicket of the Australian captain and the crowd roar their approval. It was a length delivery that cut in from just outside off. Ponting was on the front foot, looking to drive on the up but is beaten by the inward movement. He was struck in line on the off and middle line and he has to go. PK ran straight to Ishant to celebrate, followed by wildly happy Raina and the other team-mates 45/3
    20.6 White has been repeatedly trying to get down the track but has been unable to reach the pitch of the ball. And he has adjusted by jabbing it away,. But this time, he tries to go through with the shot and only succeeds in lobbing a dolly to Raina at straight ish midwicket. 93/4

    30.3 He took out Ponting with a good delivery in the last game; takes out Hussey with a lovely one tonight. It landed on a length outside off and turned in sharply. Hussey chose to go back instead of coming forward and was surprised by the amount of turn. It went right through the bat and pad gap to disturb the furniture. 140/5
