    3.4 Paul holes out to deep midwicket. It was a shortish delivery, not quite a bouncer, but on the middle and leg stump line and that does Paul in. He goes for a swat pull but gets more elevation than distance (sorry about that cliche!) and Blizzard waits for it to arrive at the boundary. 22/1
    10.4 The bouncer works. He was hit on the helmet by Malinga's last lifter. This one was on the leg-stump line and Gilchrist is very late on the pull. He just about feathers it to the keeper. 92/2
    15.2 Magnificent catch from Pollard. Absolutely awesome. Shaun had killed that shortish ball with a violent pull. Pollard rushed to his right at deep midwicket and lunged out to take it so safely with both hands. He stands, turns towards the crowd and holds his arms aloft. Fabulicious effort. 128/3
    18.1 Viv Richards or Yashpal Sharma? In the end its just DK! He walked across the stumps and wafted the full delivery up in the air. Almost ala King Viv and Yashpal, who played that shot in that 1983 tourney, but this time, unlike those two, DK doesn't get the distance. He has been snapped up at deep backward square-leg 148/6
    15.6 Spontaneous combustion time! He leaned forward to pick out mid-off with his aerial off drive. 129/4
    17.3 Mandeep is run out. He just about stabbed a slower one to the leg side, say towards short mid-on region. He ran but Malinga rushed. Malinga picked up, turned and swoooshed it across for a direct hit at the non-striker's end. 145/5

    18.6 Pollard again. Munaf again. Again and again. Ryan lifted this slower length delivery to right of long-on and Pollard rushed forward to his right and lunged out to take a low catch. He is delighted. Munna bhai too is delirious. 155/7
    19.2 The off stump has gone for some cardio training. PK moved outside leg and had a swing. And a miss. It was the slower one and the off stump went cartwheeling. 157/8

    4.1 Strangled down the leg side. It seemed a gentle seam-up delivery just outside leg and Blizzard feathers it to Gilchrist! Three down and wobbling. 27/3
    2.4 PK takes out SRT! Slightly slower, around 127 kmph, length delivery outside off and Tendulkar stumbled out. He ended up lunging forward, bat ahead of the body and ended up steering it to backward point. 19/1
    3.5 Stumped! This drifted down the leg side and Rohit failed to connect with his leg glance. What's more he lost balance at the point of impact and the back leg was on the line - perhaps not even on the line but just in front of it and the heel is raised in the air. That's out. Nothing grounded behind the line. 27/2

    7.3 Symonds is run out Rayudu drags it to wide of deep midwicket. Symonds turns for the second run but Rayudu stays frozen at the other end. Symonds keeps coming, Rayudu puts his left hand out, suggesting don't. All too late. Symonds had almost reached Rayudu's end! 44/4
    9.1 What a soft dismissal! this was a length delivery on the hips, and it has been clipped straight to long leg. Whoa! What a crushing collapse. 55/6
    12.2 Stop the press and all that. They have caught a catch. Whoa! Pollard lifts this high. Very high. Shaun gets under it at long-on. The ball takes an eternity to come down. Shaun waits. The ball arrives and he gets his palms upwards towards the sky. Is it a good move? Will the ball pop out? Shouldn't he hold it the other way? Nope what he does works. The Australian way of taking it has done the trick. 87/8
    10.4 Very nice again! From the bowler this time. Harbhajan went down the track but Bhargav slowed up the pace further. Not quicker but he slowed it up. Harbhajan couldn't adjust to it and ended up swiping across the line. Clatter. 69/7
    12.4 Oh dear. yet another tame dismissal. He leaned forward to scoop it back to the bowler. Take it. Catch it. here it is. 87/9
    12.5 Trapped in front! All over. Stunning collapse this. Low dipping full delivery and Munaf goes for the sweep. He misses and the umpire doesn't. The finger shoots up to the sky. Game over. 87/10
