    2.2 Nehra takes out Watto. It was the bouncing delivery on the middle stump line, angling away towards off, Watson went for the pull but it's too weak a shot. the ball balloons towards Harbhajan at midwicket. Watson was troubled throughout the first over and looked to take the aggressive route this over but he is gone. 3/1
    16.4 Paine goes for another fine sweep but gets a top edge. He has profited from couple of sweeps and paddle sweeps but couldn't connect this one. It was flighted outside off stump line and Paine top edges a dolly to Harbhajan at midwicket. Paine was doing his role, trying to upset the lengths of the spinners with his various sweep, succeeded initially but couldn't get it working this time. 87/2
    32.5 Ponting is run out. Again Hussey and Ponting involved in a run out. It was Flintoff then, it is Gambhir this time. Hussey drove it to left of sweeper cover and immediately called out two. Both ran as hard as they could but Gambhir rushed to his left, picked the ball and fired in a direct hit from the deep at the non-striker's end. Even if it wasn't a direct hit, Ponting was likely to get out. What a big wicket. What a way for Ponting to go. He was looking so good out there. 175/3
    40.1 holes out to long-off. It was full and well outside off stump, Hussey reached out to lift it straight to Sachin. Lucky break for Ishant. Hussey walks back after a fine knock 227/4
