    3.3 Pujara's cameo is over! Anderson gave him lots of width again and the ball seamed across him from over the wicket, Pujara chased after it and tried to drive through cover but got an edge through to the keeper 24/2
    2.1 Sehwag's been run out! He cut the ball firmly to point where the fielder dived to his right and half-stopped the ball. Rohit moved to his left from cover, picked up the ball with his left hand, transferred it to his right as he turned around and threw down the stumps at the bowler's end. Sehwag was well short. He had hesitated to run until the first fielder made his stop so that delay cost him 13/1

    11.5 caught at long on! Maxwell's gone and Mumbai are ecstatic. Maxwell came down the track but didn't get to the pitch of the ball, he went through with the shot and mis-hit it straight to Ben Dunk on the boundary. Perhaps the pressure of no runs from Saha got to him in the end ... 93/3
    15.5 caught at deep square leg! Bailey slog sweeps but mis-times it woefully, Anderson comes running in and then stoops to catch the ball with fingers pointing up even though it was a low take 130/4
    19.3 two dots and now a wicket, this is an exceptional final over from Malinga, Miller has struggled against Malinga and this time he ended up hitting a low full toss with the bottom of the bat, mis-timing it towards long on. Ben dunk ran in quickly and dived forward to catch the ball. Terrific take 165/5

    0.5 that's an outstanding catch from Saha! He's having a good game! Dunk drove away from his body at one that swung away from him on a good length outside off stump, the edge flew quickly but Saha dived to his left to take it smoothly 6/1
    9.4 lbw! One cute reverse shot too many from Gautham. Dhawan kept it simple, wicket to wicket and on a good length. Gautham tried to reverse swat off the back foot and he missed. The ball hit him plumb in front 70/3
    2.5 lbw! That ball snaked late into the right-hander, bending sharply from far outside off stump, Rayudu had moved across his crease and was right in front of the stumps when the ball crashed into his front pad below the knee roll. Plumb. 23/2
    15.3 Saha takes an easy catch! Rohit backed away to leg and closed the face to play the ball through square leg. He played too early and the ball lobbed tamely off the leading edge behind the wicket to Saha 123/4
    16.4 Anderson fails to see it through! He tries to hit a good length ball over the long-off boundary and doesn't connect properly. Miller is ready and waiting for the catch 126/5
