    2.1 Got him, Akmal's powerful slice finds Sanjay Bangar at backward point, who takes a good catch 14/1
    17.2 what have we here?? Afridi gets away with a low full toss and Smith goes for a rather tired heave, he fails to get the elevation and Kalyanakrishna takes it easily at deep midwicket 187/5
    9.3 and a huge sigh of relief for Deccan as Pathan goes! It was a rank half tracker outside off, Pathan stays at the crease, reaches out and plays an ugly flat-batted swipe straight to Symonds at long-on 112/2
    11.6 through the gate! Afridi bowls the quicker one and gets it to angle into watson, he goes for the slog sweep but misses it completely and the ball crashes onto the stumps 126/3
    17.1 could this be a turning point here? Afridi pitches that on a good length and Kaif tries to slam that over long-on, he mishits it and Symonds takes the offering easily at long-on 186/4
    18.2 the middle stump is out! RP fires in a yorker on the base of middle stump, Jadeja makes room to dig it out but is beaten for pace, the middle stump goes back by a yard or two 195/6

    18.4 Warne moves across his stumps to distract RP, he fires that down leg and Warne drives straight to Laxman at cover, Salunkhe sets off for a suicidal run but Warne sends him back, it's too late as RP whips off the bails 196/7
