    0.1 Gone!First ball!Rudolph bowled! A full, swinging ball outside off stump moves back and pegs back his off stump, Zak's loving it! 0/1
    20.1 Gone! Full and straight, Petersen misses and that was almost hitting all three stumps, the umpire raises the finger and VRV celebrates 75/3
    10.3 Bowled! What a ball! Pitches full, fast and furious outside off stump and swings in, Duminy plays around it and the ball hits top of off stump, and Zaheer's cock-a-hoop, India strike again 36/2
    35.1 Kemp goes for the quick single, van Jaarsveld goes aswell but is found short of his crease after Sreesanth attacks the ball and throws it straight to Dhoni who only has to dislodge the bails. Good knock from van Jaarsveld comes to an end - India need five more. 175/5
    20.2 Gone! Another one bites the dust! Not a great ball, but all van Wyk can do is chop it onto his stumps from outside off, and the ball only just dislodges the bail! That's two in two balls for VRV! 75/4
    38.2 got'm! and that's a crucial wicket. Short delivery on the stumps, Kemp goes for the big pull and ends up with a thick top edge, ball steeples up behind the stumps on the leg side. Dhoni hurtles across and nicely settles under it 183/6
    47.3 two more to go! Goes for the little tickle around the corner but fails ot keep it down. Ganguly at leg-slip makes no mistake 218/8
    39.3 another one bites the dust! Adams get the ball on the glove, Short leg makes no mistake as the ball pops up right in front of him. Huge appeal and up goes the finger - Adams walks back for a duck and India are just three wickets away from victory here. 183/7
    48.5 That's the game! Morkel tries to hit the big one over midwicket and gets a thick top edge. Dhoni gets under it and makes no mistake. 224/10
    47.4 and he lasts just one ball - that's the third golden duck of the innings ! tossed up, lands full and straight, De Wet doesn't get any bat on that and he is caught stone dead. Nine down, just one more to get. 218/9
