    1.2 he is gone, poor shot, plays across the line of a full, straight delivery, and misses. It was bowled from close to the stumps, half of it pitched within the line of leg stump, and was too full to have angled across the off stump 5/1

    15.6 Malinga you beauty! Perfect yorker! 140ks, Marsh tries to play it with an open face and has his off stump uprooted. Can't play those, I am afraid. He will be on a hat-trick in the next over 124/6
    4.4 that's the highest I have seen a checked shot go! This slower ball spits at him, and he has to check the drive, and the skier settles in Zaheer Khan's hands at mid-off 40/2
    10.4 both of them have been run out! Poor running again! Mahela makes room and hits it square, Malinga fumbles, Mahela comes back for two. By the half way mark, Marsh knows it's a bad call, and stops there and watches Mahela get run out. Just to make sure they get a wicket from this delivery, they run down the stumps at non-striker's end too 89/3
    11.2 one of the softest dismissals you'll see! slower ball on the pads, Yuvraj is so early into the shot it hits the back of the pad and lobs to Bhajji at short fine, who has an I-told-you look on his face as he goes on a celebratory run 92/4
    15.5 amazing catch by Bhajji! undoes all his earlier fumbles! Irfan gets too much underneath this one, and Bhajji has to run backwards from midwicket to get under it, and even though he hasn't got himself into great position he holds onto it and tumbles over. Gets up and points to Jonty Rhodes 124/5
    16.4 Lee has holed out to deep midwicket, and he has picked one of the tallest cricketers going around, Pollard - Tendulkar is in splits, maybe because a full toss has resulted in a wicket, but it's just a good sight, watching SRT laughing heartily 129/7
    17.2 one ball too late, but he rattles the timber, another yorker, slower this time, 134ks, and too good for Goel 133/8
    19.6 gets the yorker right, fields cleanly in his follow through, the batsmen have to go for the one, and he runs Chawla out easily 163/10

    18.6 timber! You don't need no fielders for this, Malik clears his front leg, Zak is full and straight and in the block hole. Bye bye middle stump 150/9

    11.4 back-of-the-hand slower ball, Dhawan goes for the big shot down the ground, toe-ends it, and Marsh runs in from long-off to complete the catch. Is this the turnaround? 91/3
    5.2 Chawla gets SRT again! Tendulkar tries to take long-on on, and the ball grips at him, and all he manages is a hole-out to Irfan 42/1
    9.6 Pollard has mis-hit and found Bopara at wide long-on, gets power into it but can't get under it and hence no elevation. Bopara runs to his right from long-on, and is mindful of the rope and finishes a smart catch 82/2
    18.6 well not quite ending! another turn? Tiwary pulls this short delivery, flat and low to deep midwicket where Goel dives forward to keep the game alive 158/6
    15.5 ugly slog from wide outside off, gets a top edge and Yuvraj takes a simple catch at point. This game is not over 122/4
    16.6 and Bopara comes right back with a vicious slower one! Or so Bravo makes it seem, this is shorter and not in Bravo's striking zone, and as it kicks at him, Bravo is all squared up and fends at it. Bopara runs in to his right and takes a diving catch! 133/5
