    1.5 ugly shot from a usually beautiful stroke-player, tried to play across the line, gets a bit of a top edge and it goes to Hussey at mid-off, Dravid's gone! 6/1
    8.4 goes down the track and he is gone, caught! Rahane was getting frustrated at his inability to score runs, he tried to take on Mahesh, gets the toe end of the bat and it ballooned up for Ashwin to take a simple catch at mid-on 40/3
    5.4 out, caught at third-man? Outside edge from Watson, it flew to the third-man fielder, Ashwin makes a lot of ground, dives and holds on, but they are checking now. Yes, it is out, an excellent camera angle and there was no doubt about that one. 28/2
    10.2 short ball and pulled away straight to short mid-wicket, Raina was brought there before this ball and it goes straight to him, Binny's cameo has ended. 65/4
    18.3 wicket for Ashwin, lbw, carrom ball! This was pitching in line, quicker too, swung it across the line, missed and was caught plumb in front 115/6

    17.1 slog attempted, bowled! The run-rate needed to climb, Botha had played out 19 balls for his 12 and he was under pressure to get some away, tried to go for a big one but missed 97/5

    12.1 gone, run-out! Crazy running from Dhoni and Hussey, total lack of communication and that results in the demise of Hussey. It was pitched up, hits his pads and Hussey wanted a single, was sent back, before Dhoni also showed some interest, there were many 'yeses' and 'nos' within a couple of seconds. In the mean time, the bowler got to the ball, threw it back and hit the stumps! 60/4
    0.6 gone, bowled! That was an excellent ball, pitched on the stumps and moving away, hits the top of the off stump and the bails are down! 1/1
    5.6 outside the off stump, gives himself room to play it over extra-cover, driven in the air and caught! That was an excellent catch, it went high in the air, as much as the catch dropped by Srikanth had, but Rahane did well to get under it and take it easily! What was Raina doing playing that stroke, I do not know. 36/2
    11.2 pulled away and caught! This might make it exciting, shorter one, Bravo pulled it away to deep square-leg for the fielder to judge it well and take the catch! 57/3
    15.6 cut away, caught, is that the match? short ball and the absent third-man was an open invite, Dhoni went for a full bloodied cut, but straight to the point fielder and is caught! 80/5
    16.2 down the track and caught at long-off! He had hit a boundary off the first ball of the over but he went down the pitch for this one and tried to clear the long-off fence, mistimed it and its gone straight to the fielder on the boundary. 84/6
