    4.4 he's got him lbw! Pitches fullish, comes back in and gets him in front of middle and leg as he's late on the shot, seemed unsure of whether to go forward or back 30/3
    0.2 big wicket in the first over! Albie pitches fullish marginally outside off stump, Kallis presses forward gently, not a big stride at all and he gets hit on the front roll, after a long thought umpire Harper raises the finger of fate 2/1
    1.4 straight to backward point! Not a shot Dravid will be too proud of, just failing to keep a short ball down, he aimed to slap it away but just steered it to Badrinath, who cupped it in front of his face with few hassles 12/2
    19.1 Taylor what have you done? Takes a step forward and across, Oram holds back the length and Taylor top edges the ball up in the air, Dhoni doesn't for a second lose sight of it as he runs back towards the boundary and takes it easily ... Kiwi to Kiwi, Oram has won that battle when it mattered most 125/8
    14.2 great catch by Oram! Kohli pulls a short ball from outside off stump, looks a cracking shot over midwicket until Oram sprints forward from the ropes and dives forward to grasp a tumbling catch an inch or two off the grass, awesome effort and do we have another twist? 86/4
    15.1 and he's struck first ball, tossing the doosra up outside off stump, it takes the outside edge as Boucher loses balance on the drive, Hayden gobbles it up to his left at slip 91/5
    16.5 now thats not the smartest piece of cricket I've ever seen! Attempted yorker on the stumps, Roelof drives hard straight to cover-point and sets off, the fielder returns an over throw and they get one, then a piece of madness from Roelof ends his manic innings ... he was slow on the return and pranced back over the line with his bat not outstretched as Dhoni received a good lob from Murali and disturbed the stumps, not sure what he was doing there because he was well home but hit bat was dragging by his feet ... after numerous replays the decision is OUT and while Chennai explode Roelof slinks off back to the Bengaluru dug out 104/6
    17.3 smart catch from Tyagi! Oram gets Akhil with a short ball, he slogs at top edges and Tyagi, running in from third man, dives superbly and clutches the steepler as it dies in front of him ... its moments like these, and Oram's earlier catch, will really matter in such situations 107/7
