    7.4 this time he's gone! Sehwag plays the same shot three balls out of four, connecting well on the first, feebly on the second, and making a total hash of the third! Rasel sticks to the same line, pitching it full, asking him to hit it, and all Sehwag does is slog it straight up in the air for mid-off to run across and take a diving catch, tumbling over after completing the catch and getting mobbed by his team-mates 43/1
    38.3 bowled 'em! Fullish outside off stump, and a tired Gambhir heaves across the line only to get a bottom-edge back onto off stump, thats the shot of a weary man but a good hundred...he hobbles off the field to some decent applause from his team-mates 210/4
    25.5 edged and gone! Rafique fires it full and wide, Dhoni makes room and cuts, getting low as sees the ball staying down too, and the under-edge is snapped up brilliantly by Rahim! Dhoni doesnt even wait for the umpire's signal, just shuts up shop and makes for the pavilion 130/2
    31.6 taken! Softest of soft dismissals! Tossed up, good rotation, and what does he do? He plays out in front of his pad, closing the bat face awkwardly, and presents Rafique with the easiest of caught-and-bowled chances, and I mean easy - just popped back to his palms. Yuvraj stands there, shakes his head, and ambles off while Rafique gleefully savours the wicket 174/3

    43.2 gone! Tossed up, out dances Mongia, getting underneath it and just slogging it up in the air down towards mid-off, where a sprightly Rafique runs a long way in from the ropes, keeps his eyes on the ball, and takes a tumbling catch 239/5
    44.4 tossed up on middle and leg stump, the ball spins down as Karthik shuffles across and forward and plays with the turn, playing all over it, Rafique appeals...and thats a very surprising decision given that he was so far down the track, and that the ball bounced a bit too...ah well, thats the game of cricket for you 251/6
    45.3 superb stumping! Chawla comes out, Razzak sees it, fires it down leg stump, he's way out of his crease as the ball spins past him, and in a flash Rahim takes it and whips off the bails 258/7
    48.1 gone! Powar shuffles across the stumps, then tries to cheekily work it fine, misses it and gets hit in front of the stumps, that ball was in the blockhole and the umpire's finger shot up without a second thought 273/8

    10.4 another slower ball and this time the batsman gets deceived, he is too early into his shot and Karthik jumps up and plucks a nice catch at cover 51/2
    4.6 low full toss, driven to mid-off, calls for one, then some no-no-wait business, Omar's confused and sends him back, but even a despairing dive cant save Tamim from Chawla's excellent throw to Dhoni and he's livid with his partner, looking back and shouting at him, cursing, and even Omar doesnt hold back with his response...veteran and rookie having a little spat there, as all await the third umpire's decision, but that was clearly out 18/1
    19.6 cleaned up! Powar strikes, tossing one up outside off stump, it does enough to beat Aftab in flight, who just plonks the bat forward, misses, and looks back to see his off stump castled 92/5
    12.3 this time, the batsman gets a thick edge and it goes straight into Dhoni's hands, Saqibul doesn't even bother to wait for the umpire's decision and walks off to the pavilion 60/3
    16.5 ripping googly! Maiden wicket for Chawla, who gets one to spin in sharply, Ashraful moves to leg, exposing the stumps, the bat comes down very late and he hears the death rattle. Chawla loves it. 86/4
    40.3 its all over for Bashar now! He doesnt learn, again making room and repeating the attempted slog, again missing completely, confounded by the big leg break, and this time Dhoni doesnt make any mistake 177/7
    35.2 that was quick! Tossed up, Rahim gets down on bended knee, sweeps hard, but gets a top-edge thats well snapped up by Karthik, running back from mid-on, keeping his eyes on it, and taking it over his head 151/6
    47.1 all over, as Mortaza stands and picks a length delivery up and into Sehwag's hands at mid-on. 42 from 22! Take a bow. 231/9
    44.1 tossed up invitingly from around the stumps, Rafique gets down and attempts the slog-sweep again, but picks out the man standing right back on the deep midwicket ropes, Uthappa, the sub for Gambhir, and the fireworks are over from him 193/8
