    8.2 yorked him, bowled him! Gayle is loving this. Klinger looks to charge at him, Gayle bowls this right on the crease, and takes the middle stump out. And what an ever-lasting smile Gayle has on his face. And his team-mates are enjoying this too. Although he doesn't dance this time 64/2
    5.3 Vettori wins over fellow Kiwi. He is a shrewd bowler. McCullum charges at him again, Vettori refuses to push it through, instead bowling it slightly short and slightly wide, MCCullum is beaten in the flight and ends up spooning this to short third man 43/1

    9.6 DannyV bowls a peach here, and Mahela looks at the pitch as if it is somebody who has let him down. This is flatter, quicker, pitched outside off, just short of driving length, Mahela looks to push it into the off side, gets a thin edge as the ball turns sharply and kisses the edge on the way to de Villiers. And by the way - not that there is anything wrong with not walking - Mahela is not a walker, unlike many believe him to be 72/3
    10.2 and whoa what a crazy run-out pulled off by ABD. Take a bow AB de Villiers! He didn't need to do this, but he has done it. What drama between Hodge and Patel too. Back from start. Hodge cuts it to short third and charges off right away. Patel, whose call it should be, says no after a bit, and both start going to the non-striker's end. de Villiers meanwhile doesn't know that this is an easy chance, and gets this wild throw, collects it diving to his left, and in the same motion flicks it onto the stumps even as he is going down. To make it more dramatic, there is a photo finish as to who is closer to the non-striker's out and should stay back. Replays show Patel has lost by inches 73/4
    19.3 and another one bites the dust. Jadeja makes room, heaves, gets a thick edge, Kaif comes in running from sweeper-cover, shouts mine loud and clear, fending off Gayle and Vettori, and makes the catch low in front of him 122/8
    17.2 slower ball, Gomez didn't have many options but to hit out as he looked out of his depth, and Kohli makes this catch to his right at long-on look simpler than it is 106/6
    18.3 Vinay Kumar is gone. He has no choice but to go for the big hits. Gets too under this length ball, and Vettori completes the catch at mid-off 115/7
