2.2 short, wide and caught! That's a pretty average delivery, it was short and wide outside off stump and asking to be cut, Ronchi went after it and perhaps tried to hit it too hard, he got an outside edge which flew quickly to Laxman at first slip, sharp catch 15/1
    10.3 Afridi bowls the googly, Jayasuriya moves across and tries to swing the ball over the leg side, he gets beaten by the change of pace and the top edge swirls high in the air towards backward square leg, Sharma runs back and takes a well judged catch 55/4
    3.5 caught! Rahane attempts to clear the deep square leg boundary with the pull but the ball is just too slow, he plays the shot too early and hits it straight to Ojha at deep backward square leg, he's out for a duck 18/2
    5.2 caught! or is it lbw? Afridi bowls a quicker ball slanting into the right-hander, Uthappa tries to cut from his crease, the ball brushed his front pad on its way through to Gilchrist, not sure if it hit the bat yet, it's been given caught so uthappa might be unlucky 27/3
    13.3 bowled him! Pollock backs away and tries to pull the ball off the front foot, the line and length is dead straight from Bangar, Pollock misses and Bangar hits middle stump, Mumbai are reeling now 79/5
    16.3 caught! Zoysa bowls the short ball, Nayar makes room once again and tries to hook, this time he gets a top edge to Gilchrist who takes the catch, that brings an exhilarating innings from Nayar to an end 122/6
    19.6 caught! RP bowls a short of a length delivery which Bravo tries to pull over the leg side, he made contact outside off stump and hit it straight to Ojha at mid-off who takes a simple catch 154/7
