    0.1 what a start! Zaheer lands it on a good length bang on middle stump, gets the ball to drift in to the right-hander before pitching. Clarke gets a half stride forward and the ball strikes him right in front. The umpire had no hesitation in raising his finger as Zaheer went up in appeal 0/1
    9.2 Gilchrist goes for the wild slash and pays the price! that was full and swinging away from the left hander outside off. Gilchrist goes for the expansive slash over point and gets a thick top edge which flies to Harbhajan running to his right from third man 60/2
    26.1 edged and gone! Big wicket for RP, coming around the stumps again and bowling it a touch short, tempting Ponting to sway back and cut, but the result it a thick outside-edge which Dhoni snaps up 129/5
    19.5 and thats that, as Hodge, with limited footwork, pushes at a shorter and quicker delivery outside off stump and gives the wide slip catching practice, ending a scratchy innings in which he couldnt force it against the spinners 117/3
    19.6 and the big man goes first ball! The ball's pretty ordinary, short and wide outside off stump and Kartik's extremely lucky to get Symonds, cutting at it and looking on as Tendulkar, in the covers, dives forward and takes a good catch! 117/4
    31.1 Kartik gets him with the arm ball! Haddin gets a half-stride forward to a delivery pitched on middle and straightening. The ball strikes him low on the front pad and that was an easy decision for Umpire Saheba 162/6
    35.5 Hopes misreads the turn! flighted around the middle stump. Hopes goes back and the ball spins from middle, goes through and clips the off stump. Big daylight between bat and pad on that one. That's six for Kartik... what a comeback! 177/9
    31.4 bat-pad! flighted on off stump, Hogg gets a stride forward and appeared to get an inside edge onto the pads. Uthappa at forward short-leg takes the catch and the rest are certain they've got the wicket. Hogg looks rather unhappy with Saheba's decision though 162/7
    31.5 Kartik takes five! flighted on off stump, draws Lee onto the forward drive and succeeds in getting an outside edge to RP Singh at gully. Kartik's on a hat-trick here...again! 162/8

    41.3 and thats the end of that! Bracken gets a short-pitched delivery on the stumps, swivels into the pull, doesnt time it well at all and all Harbhajan has to do is jog in from fine leg and hold a simple catch. 193/10

    1.4 first blood to Johnson! teases Ganguly with a good length delivery pitching on off stump. The ball angles away from the left-hander after pitching and Ganguly is all at sea as he gets a thick outside edge through to Gilchrist 3/1
    10.2 Lee hits the timber! full and swinging in, Tendulkar leans across for the cover drive, plays away from the body and gets an inside edge onto the stumps. The ball just clips the leg-bail 38/3
    3.4 edged and gone! teasing length from Johnson - pitched up just outside the off stump. Karthik senses an opportunity to break the rut and get off the mark. he drives and the thinnest of edges goes through to Gilchrist 8/2
    13.5 Bracken finally gets his reward! almost the perfect delivery - comes in to the left hander, Yuvraj sticks his bat out, expects the ball to continue with the line but it shapes away. He gets a thick outside edge and the athletic Gilchrist flings himself to his left and takes the catch 49/4
    31.3 Clarke strikes! tossed up on off stump, Uthappa gets forward to a full length delivery and tries to defend.The ball hits him low on the pad and umpire Aleem Dar is convinced the ball struck him in line with off stump 129/7
    17.5 edged and gone! The thinnest of edges as Dhoni stands rooted to his crease and can't resist fishing at one angled across off stump, a pretty inoccuous delivery but Dhoni's gentle feeler only ended up in Gilchrist's safe gloves .. and thats his 400th catch in one-day cricket as India slip further 63/5
    18.5 and he doesnt trouble the scorers any! Hopes gets it to pitch and angle across Pathan, who is tempted, like Dhoni a moment ago, to push at it and this time its catching practice for second slip ... nothing more than a steer into his hands and Hopes loves it ... 64/6
    35.4 short of a length and wide outside off, Harbhajan tries to glide it past the keeper with a lazy glide. Ponting, at wide first slip, takes the catch easily at head-height 143/8
