    37.6 got'm! this is excellent stuff from Collins! good length delivery, pitched close to the off stump line and shaping in ever-so-slightly, teasing line and length and Jaffer is sucked forward into the drive, played at it with an angled bat and the edge is produced, Gayle at first slip goes low down and takes it inches away from the ground - big wicket! 143/2
    26.1 oh dear! Sehwag perishes first ball after lunch! how often have we seen this happen - good length delivery, pitched close to the off stump line and this one jagged back in sharply, Sehwag plays down the wrong line and is trapped stone dead, as plumb as it gets and umpire Rudi Koertzen adjudicates in favour of the bowler - Collymore with the much needed breakthrough 109/1
    63.1 and straightaway the bowling change works! wayward delivery outside the off stump, Laxman needlessly follows it, awkward looking drive at full stretch and the edge goes straight to Lara at second slip who takes it on the third attempt! 243/3

    71.3 Dhoni falls! Super catch by Gayle, at cover. It was full, well outside the off stump, Dhoni went down on his knee, threw his bat at it, again the impact was low down on his bat, and the ball flew fast to the left of Gayle, who stretched out to hang onto a difficult chance. 273/4
