    5.4 excellent riposte, this. Simmons makes room this time and Morkel bangs it in, gets a lot of bounce. Simmons wasn't in a great position to uppercut that, and ended up scooping it feebly into short third man's hands 42/2
    4.2 and that's a typical end to a typical Parthiv innings. Runs down the track again but fails to reach the pitch. May have wanted to hit straight down the ground, ends up flicking it uppishly, straight down the throat of deep midwicket 29/1
    11.4 opened him up! That was a beauty from Narine. Pitches middle, hits off, and Rohit clearly didn't pick it. Was looking to go on the back foot and work it through the leg side, initially, and then tried to adjust and play with a straight bat, but it slipped quickly past his bat-face and clipped his off bail 79/4
    6.3 sees Rayudu skip down the track and bowls it slower and wider. He goes through with the shot but ends up slicing it high and not quite getting the distance, finds Russell at wide long-off 47/3

    5.3 juggle, juggle, gone. This must have been a plan, judging by how often Harbhajan was angling these darts in towards leg stump. Too quick for Uthappa to get down on his knee and sweep, and he ends up lapping uppishly from a semi-crouched position, and hits it straight to Malinga at short fine leg, at chest height. He didn't catch it cleanly on first attempt, but managed to grab onto it 45/1
    10.6 and he's gone! Down the track again, and Suchith bowls it flat and quick and yorks him and takes out his leg stump 88/3
    5.5 risky single, direct hit, and I think Pandey's gone here. It was fired in quick and full, and Gambhir used the angle to tickle it towards short fine leg. Pandey made the call for the single, but realised he had to dive to make his ground, and even so the direct hit from Simmons caught him a foot short of the crease 46/2
    19.1 and he strikes first ball! It's a slower short ball on off stump. Yusuf goes for the pull, top-edges it, and the ball balloons into Parthiv's gloves. This could be a decisive twist. The batsmen didn't run, didn't cross over. 160/7
    14.2 short ball, dug in sharply, and it's too close to him to pull with any authority, and it balloons in the air, straight into the hands of Pandya running in from deep midwicket 118/4
    15.5 slower ball wide outside off and he's dismissed Russell! It was just short of driving length, and the low arm caused it to angle away from the batsman a bit. Went for the big hit, on one knee, looking to go over long-on, and ended up edging it to the keeper 128/5
    17.1 that's his favourite pick-up shot, that's effortlessly timed, and that's hit straight into deep midwicket's hands! It was full on the pads, and he flicked it with an almost casual air. Shot was on, I suppose. He may have been looking to hit it a lot squarer than he ended up doing. 144/6
