    1.4 and now a soft dismissal, the ball landing outside off and Gambhir hardly gets any bat on a tame would-be-lofted drive to mid-off where Hopes takes an easy catch 12/2
    0.5 Sehwag's run-out at the non-striker's end, dropping down his hands, Clarke stopping the ball well at point with a dive to the left and a direct hit shudders down the stumps. Sehwag crashes his bat into the ground as he walks off, furious 5/1

    2.6 booming low full toss, Karthik plays all around it and he just didn't see it, the ball skittles the sticks 20/3
    3.2 slower ball, a touch of loop in at the right hander who waits for the ball to cross him and then drives uppishly to mid-off where David Hussey gets on the international scoresheet for the first time 20/4

    6.4 Hopes strikes with his fourth ball! The ball comes in on a good length on off, Sharma shapes to swivel a pull round, misses, and his off stump is clipped 32/5
    11.4 swivels in on middle, a touch short, and that's Hussey's first wicket as Dhoni stands tall and swats a pull to deep midwicket which doesn't quite have the legs 49/6
    17.3 He's gone this time, stepping back, exposing his stumps, and trying to crack a back-foot cut off one which nipped in, Gilchrist taking the edge 74/10
    14.1 outside off, plenty of room, driven hard but aerially to a wideish long-off 60/7
    15.2 swivelled in to the middle stump and a magnificent catch from Clarke, who's fielding has been excellent from the off, removes the batsman with a diving effort 63/8
    15.3 steps down the track, outside off, to meet the ball that doesn't quite come on to the bat, shapes to drive over cover, takes a slight edge, spoons to gully and that's another terrific catch, scooped low 63/9
