    17.6 the quicker one does it for Bodi this time. Short of a length, into the ribs, and he takes the glove of the pulling Bodi for Ojha to complete an easy catch 122/4
    5.2 backs away from the stumps well before Yadav has bowled. Gets a full ball in his striking zone, but somehow manages only a thick edge through to the keeper. Yadav gets a birthday gift 34/1
    9.1 and Agarkar gets a second bite at the cherry. De Kock tries to pull again, but perhaps this is not short enough, or it just doesn't quite come on. His top edge swirls towards deep midwicket, and Chand accepts this more difficult chance well 58/2
    10.4 fired in, Pretorius looks to pull, but it turns away, surprising Pretorius. The pace, bounce and turn are too much for him, and the ball lobs off the shoulder of the bat to cover 63/3

    18.2 extra bounce does it. Symes tries the pull first ball, just the short-arm thing, but the ball hurries on to him and takes a meaty top edge for the keeper to run towards short fine leg to complete a fine catch 123/5

    5.4 caught and bowled, but this ball seems to have kissed the moon before coming down. Tries the short-arm pull, but the ball is too full for that shot. The top edge is vertical and hangs up over the pitch. Morris is under it to complete a sitter, and then taps his wrist band. Some signal to someone in the dugout? I am being told this gesture is called "red thunder" 36/2
    0.3 Sehwag takes a suicidal run to come to strike and does this. No sighters. Goes bang after the first ball, and gets too under this length ball to send this into the orbit. Petersen completes the catch at mid-on 1/1
    16.1 Morris has made amends for the Pietersen drop. Bouncer from Morris, Pietersen is hurried into the pull, and Thami goes after the top edge towards short fine leg. The ball swirls away, but he waves off the fielder and dives for it. And he gets up and kisses his red wrist band. Their support staff is so thrilled they are on the field. Red thunder all over 92/8
    11.2 short of a length, angling in, Chand holes out. He has been tied down for long. Now he tries to go over long-on, but it hits the higher half of the bat, and long-on accepts this gleefully 62/3
    12.4 Pathan the pinch-hitter fails. Short ball, he tries to pull, but all he manages is a thick top edge to send this skier down deep square leg's throat. Taylor will have to come out now 72/4
    13.6 taken, what a catch. Blinder from the big fast bowler. This game is going down to Agarkar again. Short of a length, no room, stops a touch at him, Taylor is early into the push, towards the right of Nanes, but he sticks a hand out and plucks it, and charges off celebrating, making his team-mates chase him 76/5
    14.6 Symes has come back strongly. Low full toss again, and Ojha goes for a straight hit, but it comes off the bottom part of the bat, straight to Symes. Softly too. They have taken a wicket this over, but how much will missing the big one cost them? 85/6
    15.4 whoa. Huge huge never-ending unrelenting shout from Phangiso, and Dharmasena raises his finger. This is a short ball, Negi tries to pull, and misses. Everybody else has got down to work. The keeper tries to field the ball, but Phangiso doesn't relent with his shout. Finally the finger goes up. Hit him on thigh pad, clearly going over 91/7
    18.1 Petersen takes another blinder. He is not happy because this was a sitter for Tanvir at extra cover, but it was Petersen who had to run in from mid-off and dive forward and take this catch 104/9
