    4.2 this is superb bowling, an offspinner's dream, flighted generously, draws Gilchrist out, and then it dips, pitches two feet short than what Gilchrist expects, and this breaks away big, from outside leg to outside off, and an easy stumping, lovely dismissal 34/1
    11.6 Chawla makes up for that easy single, this was short and wide, and was cut away powerfully, but high to the left of point, where Chawla dives, completes the catch and makes sure it doesn't pop out when he falls on the ground 73/3
    4.3 Powar you beauty, dip, drift and break, thrown up again, Suman steps out, the drift takes it away, beats the big heave, and - hook, line and sinker - it gets the middle stump 34/2
    13.1 a lovely stumping, what recovery from Sangakkara. Lovely bowling to begin with, drawing Symonds out, turning it across Symonds, Sanga doesn't collect it cleanly, but gets it on the rebound, falling down at the same time, and whips the bails off. Replays show he had flicked one bail off while falling down, and he didn't have the ball in his hand then. The third umpire has given it, the rules say if only one bail is off, you can remove the second bail and get the stumping 79/4
    19.3 and the game turns again, length ball again, Rohit looks to go midwicket, misses, Pathan hits the leg stump, what a game, what an over 131/7
    13.2 oh Yuvraj you beauty! flat arm ball, just outside off, Venu lets it go, but this one angles in fast and furious, takes the off stump out. Would you believe it? Second hat-trick for Yuvraj. He had taken a wicket last ball of the last over. Even he doesn't realise it 79/5
    18.2 Rohit takes it all in his hand, he runs even before the ball has reached the batsman. It's a slower bouncer, which Teja misses, but Rohit is taking the single come hail or storm. Teja is late, and Lee gets him at the non-striker's end 110/6
    not out
    19.5 has Pathan done it once and for all? Can't say by the way this match has gone, another slower ball, moves away from RP, who looks for another slog, gets the toe end, and the ball lobs back to the right of Pathan 131/8
