    1.2 Swallowed by Dilshan at backward point. It was a length delivery moving away from him and Swapnil hit it on the up, pretty powerfully, but Dilshan lunged forward to take a neat catch. 14/1
    8.1 Sangwan has bowled well at Smith so far and takes him out now. Smith charged out for the big hit but the youngster banged it shorter and Smith mistimes the pull shot towards deep midwicket. Sehwag runs in and almost clangs it! The ball pops out of his palm ... once .. twice and he takes it on the third attempt! 50/4
    4.5 Oh boy! what a comeback from Mishy! Done in by the googly! It broke back in from just outside off stump, Ojha went for the big cover drive. Mistake. He went outside the line of the ball and lost his stumps. Mishra is almost angry as he celebrates! 45/2
    5.5 Done in by the slower one. It was almost predictable that Yusuf, who was dead-batting so far, would go after this ball. He picked the wrong ball, though. He didn't pick the slower one all that well and ended up dragging it straight up and AB moved to his right at mid-on to collect it. 46/3

    16.2 Dogra is run out It was cut to point. Dogra did all the running there. first he ran nearly all the way to the other end and came back. Too late. Gone! 110/5
    17.1 Mascarenhas is run out. It was pushed to third man and he came back for the second run but he is not even in the frame when DK breaks the stumps. 115/6

    3.3 length delivery around off stump line, Gambhir wants to heave that one over mid-on but fails. He cleared the front foot, opened-up his stance but couldn't get much power behind the pull.. the ball lobs up to mid-on 42/1
    9.6 Smith takes a very good catch to remove the big fish. Sehwag got too much under the ball as he went for another big swing towards long-on and skied it to midwicket. Smith was running in circles as the ball swerved down but he lunged out at the last minute to take a neat catch under pressure. The fun is over folks. Sehwag is back in the hut. 99/3
    3.4 Dilshan gone for a first-ball duck. It was a length delivery that straightened outside off, Dilshan pushed inside the line and got a thin nick. Hmmm... And here we go ..twist twist 42/2
    12.3 Warney removes AB! Loopy delivery outside off stump, AB, who has been playing quietly, nudging and pushing his way around, suddenly decides to go for the expansive inside-out cover drive. Caught at short cover! 114/4
