    0.1 And he's got him! McCallum chased that one, fishing at the very first one he faces and he gets the outside edge. Thomas is delighted, massive smile, the dangerous opener is gone. 0/1
    2.2 inside edge and that gone! Laxman tries to run one down to third man and ends up with a thick inside edge and the ball crashes into the stumps. 11/2
    4.5 caught at slip! Patel sits in his crease and heaves at the ball outside off stump, Parnell's line and length is good and the outside edge flies to first slip at head height. Kochi in tatters 24/4
    2.5 caught behind! Jayawardene goes for the drive but the ball swings into him and he gets an inside edge, Uthappa moves to his left to take the catch 13/3
    15.2 Kartik pulls off a beauty, Hodge is gone, came down the track, but Rahul kept it very flat, he could not get the elevation on the shot, Kartik was waiting at long off, but the ball died on him, so he dived forward to take a brilliant catch, big wicket 112/5
    16.1 and gets rid of Jadeja right away, it was on a length and he went down on a knee for the big slog over midwicket, got a steepling top edge that Parnell at mid off got underneath, it didn;t come down for ages, had to in the end, and Parnell was waiting for it, well judged catch 113/6

    16.6 here's trouble, lots of it for Kochi, he played it wide of midwicket and set off for the run, but the man there dived and stopped the ball, fired in the throw to the keeper, meanwhile the striker has almost reached the non-striker's end, non-striker had strolled out and come back, so no one at one end, someone has to go 117/7
    19.5 full ball angling into the right-hander, driven from the crease towards long-on, Sreesanth wanted a non-existent second and is run out at the striker's end 147/8

    3.4 Simply outstanding relflexes from Kumar. Ryder plays that straight back at him and Kumar juggles it off his chest to pounch it on the rebound. Ryder may consider himself unlucky there, but brilliant from the bowler. 31/1
    7.4 can you believe it?, says Ravi Shastri. No one can, least of all Graeme Smith, waist high full toss screaming 'hit me', and Smith mows it powerfully straight to the man at deep midwicket, trods off in disbelief 54/2
    9.5 well, this time he connects but gets too much under this one as he charges out, lofts it high in the air but it comes down right to Jadeja at long on 61/3
    11.2 Yuvraj does a Gilchrist, walks after edging the attempted cut to Parthiv who is delighted as he takes the sharp chance, Hodge doing it for Kochi 73/4
    14.4 Robin's adventurous attitude leads to his downfall, went down for a reverse sweep, Murali bowled this one flatter, fuller and it went straight on to crash in to off stump 115/5

    15.4 gone! this game has turned, Parnell wanted the second, was sent back belatedly, and could not beat the throw which came to Jadeja who threw down the stumps, it was that full toss again that was turned in front of square leg 118/6
