25 that was plumb and even Solanki knew it, foxed by the googly, big turn, strikes him in front of middle and leg, Solanki knew he was a goner 149/5
    4 Maddy loses his patience a little, pitches on middle and leg, Maddy shapes to loft it over the on side, plays too early and ends up spooning it to Munaf at mid-on who dives forward and plucks it 12/1
    17.2 Powar strikes immediately! flighted on middle and leg, hardly any pace on that one, Wright tries to flick it off his pads, plays at it too early, the ball lobs off the face of the bat to Dhoni takes in with one hand and appeals confidently, the umpire waits a while, Wright doesn't wait and he just walks off 108/2
    22 Powar wins this round! tossed up fearlessly on middle and leg, Bell steps forward again and chips it high, can't get the placement right this time and the ball lands down Agarkar's throat at deep midwicket 144/3
    23.3 a leg before from around the wicket, we don't often see that, tossed up on middle and leg, Shah plants his front foot forward, the ball lands on the base of the pad, in line with the stumps, easy decision for the umpire 145/4
    42.5 Munaf gets his reward! gets the ball to kick on off stump, Bopara tries to work it to the on side, gets the top edge and Robin Uthappa takes the skier easily at point 234/7
    39.4 stumped, Nixon attempts another reverse sweep, misses, Dhoni gathers the ball and whips off the bails in a flash, an appeal follows, Nixon walks 222/6
    49.5 Schofield walks across his stumps again, Agarkar follows his and lands the ball outside off, Schofield tries to flick it fine but ends up chopping the ball onto his off stump 295/8
