    0.2 gone, Malinga is on target right second ball, Trego has no clue what to do with this pacy away going yorker, and has his off stump pegged back, the ball almost carried to Harbhajan at wide slip after zooming away in the air past Trego and hitting the stumps 0/1
    18.5 that should be the game for MI, Kieswetter has holed out to Pollard at long on, Franklin all over somerset this over, Kieswetter had to go for it, he had to, but could not get enough distance on the slog, Pollard settled under it at long on 142/5
    2.6 well, he has bowled him with a low full toss! slung in straight and a touch slow with the low trajectory, he crouched and got bat in front to try and keep it out, the ball dipped on him and found the base of middle stump 17/2
    13.3 one attempted sweep too many, Harbhajan has bowled him, tried to sweep with the turn from a foot outside off, off the body in to off stump 100/3
    18.3 Franklin has gone through Buttler, it has been a struggle for Buttler, he shuffles and tries to mow a length ball on the leg side, misses it completely and is bowled 141/4
    19.2 Timber. You don't try such cuteness against Malinga, but this seems to be Compton's favourite mode of operation. He shuffles across the line to try to scoop, Malinga is full and straight. Not quite a yorker, but too full for that shot. Middle stump knocked back 147/6
    not out
    19.3 middle stump out of the ground, make near-impossible into impossible, the yorker zooms in on the stumps with no regard for the batsman, and Kartik cannot do anything other than walk back, he tried to push it away but ended up playing inside the line 147/7
    not out
