    8.6 struck in front! This was pushed through on leg stump, pulling Uthappa into a sweep, but the ball gains a lot of turn from the pitch and hits him in front of middle stump. Seemed a fair decision. Lovely bowling, went wide of the crease to create a different angle 63/2
    4.3 that's an important strike and it's a carbon copy of many Gambhir dismissals. Lured into the drive, some away swing foils the stroke, and the outside edge is pouched by the keeper 38/1
    11.4 slowed it up so nicely! Pandey was into the flick way too early, and then the ball finally floats over to him, dribbles off the inside edge and onto the stumps. Lovely delivery against a man looking to constantly play leg side. Make your own pace, says Yuvi, and comes off better for it 82/3
    14.5 skews away to long-on and Saurabh's taken a good, running catch. The pinch hitter mistimes a back of a length delivery cramping him for room. Chawla has been making room every other ball, this time was no different, but Morkel hiked his pace up and bowled an awkward line on leg and even outside it. Can't swing the arms freely from there 108/4
    18.6 winds up again, and is caught at long-off. Tahir waves his forefinger around to celebrate, but Yusuf's done his bit. Loves the spinners so he backed himself to clear the field with another slash over the off side. Holes out 153/6
    16.3 there she blows! Another vicious slog, but it's flat. It can be caught. And it is, but Angelo Mathews. Lovely take, Tahir celebrates, and well he should. Flighted it, but made sure it was a shade outside off so that Russell didn't have room and if he wanted to hit out, like he did, the field was set for it 128/5

    19.6 nails the yorker on off stump, Botha squeezes it out to deep cover and comes back for a second run, hoping the throw will be bad. It isn't 171/7

    9.5 straight to long-on! Danced down the track, so he tossed the ball wider outside off. Manoj has to reach out for it and his timing suffers. 63/1

    10.6 plays on! And Hoggy's off on a run! It's a flat, quick, turning delivery. Shreyas was moving back and making room to cut. But the turn foils his efforts. Ends up chopping onto off stump 71/2
    15.3 did not look promising at all as he connected with the slog sweep. Finds the man in the deep. it was a good plan, going with the spin and heaving it away towards the shorter part of the ground. But he hasn't timed it well at all. Seemed to have got under it too much 111/5
    13.2 down to long-off. Picked him out. Filghted outside off and Jadhav goes for a big hit, all he cared about was the six. Lost his shape, shaves the outside half of the bat, and he's easily held by Botha 96/3
    13.5 down the track and lifts the ball down Russell's throat at deep midwicket. Didn't quite reach the pitch, but hoped his power would help make up the difference. Doesn't as the fielder races in a long way from the boundary and takes it so cleanly. Top catch 96/4

    18.6 that's the last time the pull shot will fail him tonight. It's his normal pace, and it's short without offering too much room. Mathews swivels on the back foot for the stroke, but he's still a bit late on the shot. Inside edge crashes into timber 143/6
