    1.6 similar ball, Singh still has no clue about it. Off stumps out of the ground. The slower ball again, dipping on him, nearly a yorker, squeezes under the bat again, and this time it is straighter and hits the off stump 12/1
    6.1 Pollard you beauty. Polly kaka has done it again. Marsh has hit flat over his head, but not quite. Pollard is right back at the fence, leaps in the air, pulls this off one-handed, but the amazing this thing is how he arrests the momentum that comes from arching back in the jump, and stays about three inches inside the fence. he is full stretch. This is amazing 55/3
    2.5 much ado about nothing. There were some 1000 replays with that run-out but there is no doubt regarding this. Full and wide, he drives loosely and limply, and lobs a catch to point 16/2
    8.4 this one won't clear Johnson. Hussey us gone. Can't quite get under this, and smashes this straight down long-on's throat. Johnson makes no mistake 76/4
    17.5 hardly ever seen Tendulkar celebrate a catch that way. Full and straight, Miller makes room to go over cover, but ends up slicing it. It is swerving away, Tendulkar covers that swerve well and takes the catch. But wait for the reaction. He looks skywards, and keeps clinching his fists for a while before letting the ball go in half anger 149/9
    9.3 ugly swipe across the line, gets a healthy leading edge to sky this to cover for an easy catch 79/5
    13.2 another falls. Mahmood looks to flick, but is early into it, and gets a healthy leading edge towards the square-leg umpire. Enough time for Karthik to run there and complete the catch 110/6
    13.6 Harbhajan gets another. Another doosra, Gony tries to slog it, edges it through to Karthik 111/7
    16.5 Chawla is gone. Makes room to pull, Rayudu comes charging in front deep midwicket and takes this shin high 132/8
    19.6 another full toss. Is this a poor over or what? However, this time PK doesn't connect well and slices it for a catch to Tendulkar at point. And this time they are checking the height for the no-ball. They could have done this two balls ago too, and carried out justice. However, Kulkarni is fine with this one. And how lucky he is. Any more bat on this, and it was going for four 170/10
