    5.1 got him! looks to heave it over the leg side, gets an edge that balloons into the hands of short third man. That seemed to go off the back of the bat. Will have to wait for a replay. Nope, it hit the toe of the bat. 23/2
    0.5 that was set up perfectly. This one comes back, pitching middle, hitting middle, and Parthiv's head is falling over as he plays all around it and is struck on the front pad, right in front. 5/1
    17.3 he's gone! Kohli swings through the line again, doesn't quite hit it cleanly. It was there to be hit, but this one goes high and drops into Steyn's palms, cupped Australian-style, after he runs to his right from long-off. 141/4
    12.2 finally! Yuvraj hits this pretty well, but he might have been too close to the pitch to get any real elevation, goes flat and low to Steyn at long-on. This one carried nicely. 80/3
    18.1 big wicket, this. It's full and angled in, and did that keep a touch low? AB went back and across and went into a crouch to swat this towards midwicket, but the ball went under his bat and rammed into the stumps. 146/5

    19.6 length ball outside off, Rana slashes and misses. Starc takes off from the non-striker's end, Rana doesn't run. Ojha runs towards the stumps, disturbs them, and continues on to remove the bails at the non-striker's end as well. 160/6
