    3.1 timber! Hafeez loses his marbles, skipping down and slogging across the line with his eyes shut, looking to heave this over midwicket but the ugly stroke fails to connect and ball makes contact to rearrange the furniture, Pathan is mobbed by his team-mates 23/2
    2.5 gone! Ganguly gets back and uppercuts a pretty short ball outside off stump right down Pathan's throat at third man, positioning himself to pouch it just inside the boundary 22/1
    4.6 and he gets his man soon after the reprieve! Das doesn't move his feet as he attempts a slog over extra cover and the top-edge spirals up and settles in Yuvraj's palms at mid-off to spark a highly enthused reaction from Sreesanth 29/4
    3.6 nailed him! Pathan pitches full just around and about off stump, bringing the ball back in and rapping Hodge on the front foot, late on the stroke, and a throaty appeal is upheld by the umpire after a thought, and it looked, to the naked eye, to be hitting him in line with middle and off 25/3
    18.5 but this one's taken! Another slower ball from Gagandeep sucks Hussey out of his crease, he plays a repeat of the previous slog, which goes up into the starry evening for a long time but this time Hopes settles under it mid-off and takes it, then pumping his fists and letting out an almighty roar because Punjab know how important that wicket is 154/6
