    1.1 edged and taken, Mitchell Johnson has taken the wicket and Harbhajan Singh is the catcher and I wonder whether Rohit would be wondering why he didn't start with the quicker bowler. was on a length and angling away from the batsman, he tries to get his bat down hard and the outside edge flies to the first slip, first blood 27/1
    7.6 gone, caught! he wanted to continue that aggressive route again but Gambhir's holed out in the covers. Seems like he was beaten by the flight, was looking to slog it over mid-wicket but it gets an outside edge and it floats up to Harbhajan who grabs his second catch 68/2
    11.4 gone this time, caught in the covers! it was fuller and Kallis wanted to drill it through the covers, but gets it straight to the captain who takes it happily, three down 92/3

    19.4 bowled him, the stumps are flat on the ground as Malinga gets a yorker right! it was the best ball he's bowled tonight and Tiwary was giving himself a lot of room to hit it away, he misses and the ball gets the stumps' scalp! 158/5
    17.6 gone, caught by the captain! shorter, slower and that's top-edged to Rohit Sharma at mid-wicket! he was looking to pull it away but did not get it off the middle 146/4
    19.6 bowled him and again! that's the leg-stump on the ground to get Malinga his second wicket tonight! it was full again and much Tiwary the batsman was looking to give himself room, but misses by a mile, gone! 159/6

    10.6 fuller on the middle stump and it's been spooned high up in the air, gets more from the bottom of the bat and it goes to McCullum who almost makes a mess of it, catches it in the end! 82/3
    4.5 bowled him, middle stump flattened! this was one of the first few deliveries that were pitched up to the bat, not very full but full enough to get Tendulkar to play through the off side, the ball spins back into the batsman and beats the inside edge, gone, bowled without scoring too many. 29/1
    7.5 gone, given out lbw! he was playing him from the back-foot and the ball was angling into the batsman, seems to have hit the batsman a tad higher than needed but the ump's finger was quickly up and DK sent on his way! 64/2
    16.6 gone, caught and bowled! it was turning back into the batsman and the ball seems to have never come on to the bat, Rohit was on the back foot way before he should have been and the defensive stroke leads to the ball popping up for Narine to take an easy catch to his left 132/4
    19.1 on his pads and he's spooned it straight to the fielder! was a slower one, almost a leg-spinner and Pollard was looking to smash it over the leg side, but is beaten by the pace, it goes high up in the air and Tiwary takes that very easily! 150/5
