    1.1 the famous chicken dance come out as Virender Sehwag gets a leading edge back to the bowler, he was looking to play it to the leg side, it pops back to Johnston who collects and sets off on a celebratory dance 9/1
    20.1 The left-arm charm works. Sachin is out. Dockrell has removed the big man. Innocuous delivery. Tossed up on middle stump and straightening. Sachin went down on a knee to play the sweep through square leg. He missed and was struck on the right thigh. He discussed long and hard with Kohli is it was worth reviewing. In the end he decided against it, and just as well. That was plumb, heading for leg and middle. Could not have been plumber if he was working with pipes and taps. Peterson, Yuvraj and now Dockrell... What's it with left-arm spinners today?! 87/3
    5.2 no chicken dance this time, but Johnston has struck again, Gambhir is gone, that wasn't a great delivery, and it wasn't a great shot either, length ball on legstump, Gambhir looks to tuck it past short fine, he can only chip it to the fielder there, the Chinnaswamy is silenced 24/2
    23.4 Is this game turning? Kohli is run out. Not the first time we have seen poor running from the Indian top-order. Short ball, turning away from Yuvraj and he goes for the cut. He played it pretty square, in that area where no one is sure whose call it is. Kohli thought there was a single, and ran almost all the way down. However, he seemed to stutter on the way. Yuvraj was initially sold on the single, but once he saw Kohli hesitate, he himself stopped. The throw to the bowler's end was not the most accurate, but it was good enough to catch Kohli well short. 100/4
    not out
    40.1 is there still a twist? Dhoni has been given out lbw by Rod Tucker, Dhoni had taken a big stride forward and was hit on the back leg, that pitched on middle and off, and was going on to hit middle and leg, there's no inside-edge either, by the time the review upheld the decision to give him out, Dhoni was nearly back in the pavilion, a day to cherish for Dockrell, getting two of the biggest names in the game, first Sachin and now Dhoni 167/5
