    5.6 bad ball, bad shot! Kallis bowls it short and wide, a real half-tracker, Gambhir needlessly decides to try and jump up and uppercut it but makes horrible timing and slaps the ball straight to Taylor at cover-point, who takes his second catch of the day 37/3
    0.3 gone! Praveen gets Sehwag with an ordinary ball, its short of a length and slanting down leg stump but Sehwag just turns it off his pads to Taylor at square leg 1/1
    0.5 another one down! Praveen's on a roll, this time bending his back and dragging the ball in short to suck Manhas into the pull shot, except he's nowhere in line to play that and gets a tame top edge that pops up the other way and Kallis, from second slip, dives forward to pluck the ball 1/2
    10.3 big wicket! Its the arm ball on a good length, AB looks to play it down but is late on the shot and the ball sneaks under the bat and disturbs the furniture 65/4
    17.5 tries the cheeky shot and perishes this time! Praveen goes full outside off stump and Karthik gets across his stumps and top-edges the attempted paddle shot to Uthappa, running to his left at fine leg 114/7
    11.3 yorked! Kumble pitches it up very straight, a quick yorker on middle stump, McDonald gets into terrible position and misses it completely, the ball crashes into off stump 70/5
    16.5 gone now! Kumble flights it up nicely, gives it some air and that undoes Nagar, who is early into the big inside-out shot over cover and picks out Uthappa in the deep 109/6
