    2.1 Unbelievable! That's the sort of catch that you'll walk miles and miles to cheer. Full and wide of off stump from Zaheer and Gilchrist stands and delivers an airy swish that's flying away to the square fence. But Yuvraj Singh, in an Olympic gymnastic motion, throws himself full length to his right (his wrong side) and lunges with both arms to latch on to a sensational catch at point. Now that's the catch of the series. So far, at least 14/1
    14.2 Twenty20 act repeated. Sreesanth cleans up Hayden. Again. A very bad slog, though. It was a length delivery, coming in from just outside the off stump, Hayden swung across the line and the ball beat the ugly heave to crash into the stumps. 78/3
    3.1 Gone! Now that's Sreesanth's speciality. Two wides and then a peach. Close to the umpire, full ball, seam upright, pitching outside off and swinging in. Deadly swing, past Hodge's bat and onto his pad. Big appeal and Suresh Shastri does a Rudi Koertzen (slowly lifting his finger). Now that's what's called a set-up: wide, wide and castled. 18/2

    49.6 hurls a yorker, Clarke stabbed it down the track and Lee was off the blocks. Zaheer picked the ball calmly and took out the bails at the non-striker's end 307/7
    16.3 Done in by the slower one. Clever. It was a lovely loopy slower one, delivered from the back of the hand, full and on the middle and leg, Symonds is foxed, tries to turn it to the on side, misses and is struck in front. Franklyn Stephenson, the father of the slower one, would have been impressed. Sreesanth banged his hands on the pitch - like he did after removing Hayden in Twenty20, after taking out Symonds. 90/4
    41.5 Stumped! Haddin comes down the track, Yuvraj drags back the length and Haddin tries to adjust by swinging across the line but is beaten by the turn. Dhoni does the rest. That was a fine innings under pressure from Haddin. 234/5
    49.5 Caught by Sachin at long-on. Full and straight again, lofted straight to long-on. Tendulkar takes it and looks back - the ropes are still a meter away. 307/6
