    4.5 A fab yorker and Munaf exacts his revenge. It was fired in the blockhole and on the base of the off stump, Goel tried to bring his bat down in a hurry. Too late. Death knell. 34/1
    8.6 Warne does it with a topspinner! It landed on length, on the off stump line and straightened, Hopes, again, went for his slog, missed and was struck on the line of off stump. Whether it would have turned a little and missed off was the question. the umpire was convinced there was enough over spin for the ball to slide through straight and raised his finger 73/4
    6.3 Warne gets his first wicket of the tournament. He flighted it full outside off, Sangakkara tried to thrash it down the ground, the bat-face shut a touch and Warne was in the way. He took the catch and calmly threw the ball away. As if he expected a return catch. The magician is at his tricks again 56/2
    7.3 Salunkhe, the winner of the Mumbai leg of the reality show Cricket Star, has got rid of Mahela. Lovely loopy flighted one had Mahela charging out for a big hit but it spun past the ambitious swing of the bat. Stumped. Salunkhe is ecstatic and lets out a huge roar of joy 64/3
    16.5 Yuvraj, never a great player of good quality spin, has been done in by Warne. It was a loopy flighted one that was slightly slower in pace, and it broke back in from the off stump line. Yuvraj had gone for his favourite sweep - his get out shot in tough situations against spin- missed and was struck on the back leg 136/5
    17.2 Cleaned up by a yorker. He has served quite a few yorkers and well directed at that. Irfan had a big swing, the ball missed the bat but connected with the leg stump 136/6
    18.6 Another wicket. It was sliced to deep backward point and he turned for the second run. But the throw was flat, straight and at Kamran Akmal who broke the stumps. No need for the third umpire to get in. Given out by the on-field umpire. He was that short. 149/8
    17.4 But gets his man this time. Follows the full one with a short rising delivery and Brett Lee top edges his intended upper cut. 136/7

    1.1 Sreesanth strikes first ball. Kaifu is gone. Perfect seaming delivery, outside off stump and Kaif went for another on-the-up drive but edged it behind. Kaif has failed again. Sreesanth lets out a roar as Kaif walks past him. 6/1
    4.5 Sharp catch from Piyush. Akmal had checked his on drive and Chawla ran back from mid-on, had to turn to his left as the ball dipped that side but kept his eyes on the ball and stretched his arms out in front of him and hung to the ball. 48/3
    2.3 Full in length, on the middle and drifting towards leg, Yusuf tried to play a pick-up shot over square leg but got a thick leading edge and Lee settled under the skier. 19/2

    11.2 loud appeal and Aleem Dar has given it out. Crucial breakthrough. Full, curving in, Lehmann fails to connect with a intended across the line whip and was struck in front of leg. The Hawkeye suggests it would have clipped the leg stump. 99/4
