    8.1 another cut, this time it is not off the edge. But Dunk has not bothered to keep it down again and point has snagged a simple catch over his head. He was always looking to be aggressive it the ball was short, but Kuldeep's turn has done him in there 46/3
    1.6 beauty! Russell abandons his followthrough, dives to his right and plucks out a smart catch. He'd forced a mistake from the batsman with a shortish ball on off stump, Michael was looking to nudge it into the midwicket region, was too quick on it again, and lobs a leading edge back to the bowler 4/1
    2.4 first-ball duck! Blizzard's luck runs out! There was no turn for Yusuf, it simply skidded on after pitching on middle. The batsman was waiting on the back foot and is forced to hurry on the flick. Struck on the pads, rather low. Umpire S Ravi reckons that would have hit leg stump. But there was a big inside edge! 13/2

    13.5 runs down the track and slogs. This ball turned in, having gripped the pitch to ruin his timing. Birt went through with the shot, even if he knew he wasn't to the pitch, and offers a simple take to deep midwicket 77/4
    16.1 looked for point when he should have been aiming at long-on! This was fuller and quicker, Wells stays put in his crease and tries to slice it and ends up with his middle stump pegged back 91/5
    19.4 slapped away into the off side and they're going for a second. It's the last over, they need every run they can get but this one's too risky. Gulbis is not quite quick enough 135/6
