    3.4 gone, big wicket. Banged in on a back of a length, Uthappa tries to pull but is hurried by the pace and bounce. Way too late on it and the ball lobs up, Pollard takes an easy catch at cover. A solid start turns into an iffy one. Big wicket. 21/1
    18.1 this time Gambhir has to walk back. Full delivery on leg, right in the arc for the big hit but Gambhir is through the shot too early. Gets a leading edge which lobs up high in the air, Parthiv backtracks and shows his team-mates how to do it, albeit with gloves on. Classy knock 170/4
    13.4 gone, beautiful bowling. Flat delivery on off, but with a slower trajectory. The topspinner. Pandey is too early through the shot and gets a leading edge, which is gratefully accepted by Harbhajan 121/2
    17.2 bowled im. Big big big wicket. McClenaghan is pumped. Short delivery on middle, Russell backs away and looks for another of those powerful forehands into the stands but the ball hustles him for pace. The under edge crashes into the stumps. Massive moment. Could be a 10-15 run difference 164/3

    5.5 is that out? Parthiv is walking back. Flight on middle, Parthiv comes down and pushes the ball towards short mid-on and unbelievably calls Rohit for the run. Rohit is having none of it. Hogg sprints across, picks up, returns the throw to Uthappa who whips off the bails to find Parthiv well short. Because he was a few feet down the track already, Parthiv may have thought a run was on but it certainly wasn't. 53/1
    10.1 gone, Pandya holes out to long-off. Some flight from Chawla, and Pandya sits in his crease, and tries to muscle one down the ground. The ball skews off the outside half to long-off, who juggles but takes it eventually 87/2
    11.5 gone, McClenghan has carried out his duty and is walking back. Very high full toss outside off, would have been wide had he ignored it. But instead he goes after it and mis-times to cover. Munro takes the catch. 109/3
    18.3 high in the air and taken. Is it too late? Full on off, Buttler goes deep in the crease to try and get under it, does so but does not time it at all. Skied and taken by Suryakumar at mid-off. Pressure catch. Bat handle may have turned in his hands. 175/4
