    9.5 Gone! got his man! bit bizaare actually! First Sehwag goes for a wild heave over the bowler but only manages to send the ball in a orbit up over mid-off, where Marlon samuels misjudges it as he goes back and doesn't get a hand on it. But here is where the Indians helped. They turn for the second run, rather Dravid comes back without any hesitation but Sehwag, who is caught ball watching, is late to get off and fails to reach the crease in time. Samuels had fired the throw straight to the keeper who took off the bails in a flash. It should have been a comfortable two, if Sehwag had not been ball watching. 56/1
    38.5 crucial blow! good length delivery on the stumps, excellent change of pace from Bravo and Dravid ends up hitting it high up towards long-on, Taylor there in the deep judges it to perfection. 209/4
    11.1 Pathan departs! short of a good length and bit wide outside the off stump, a relatively innocuous delivery, Pathan has a wild slash at it with no real footwork - thick edge and Morton at second slip sallows it cleanly, Bradshaw gets one to his name - India two down. 62/2
    17.4 Bradshaw strikes again and this time it's the slower delivery that gets him a wicket! on the middle and off stump line, Yuvraj looking to loft it over the fielder at mid-on fails to connect properly, ball spoons up towards mid-on, Samuels there back-tracks, keeps his eye on the ball and at the last moment dives full length and takes it with both hands, amazing catch! 86/3

    42.3 gone! Game on folks! Full-length delivery on the middle stump, Dhoni again takes his left foot just outside the line and whacks it towards long-on. It flew straight to the fielder there. Don't go anywhere! 233/5
