    3.2 did that keep a touch low? It was back of a length, and Smith seemed surprised by it as it sneaked through his defence and crashed into the stumps. I think that came back in off the pitch as well 23/1
    4.2 back of a length on off stump, and McCullum snatches at that pull, hitting it uppishly and straight down the throat of the man at deep midwicket 29/2
    5.6 got him! Bailey was the man who ran Raina out in the IPL knockout game, and now he's the man at short midwicket who stays low and scoops up a super catch as Raina doesn't get hold of this pull. The ball wasn't quite short enough to pull, I think 41/3

    13.4 that was flat and straight, and Faf pays the price for trying to flick across the line. The ball sneaks through the gap between bat and pad and leaves the stumps in a bit of a mess 106/4
    18.3 this time Maxwell wraps his hands around that ball. It was full and wide, and Bravo didn't quite hit it as well as he would have liked, and lofted it straight to long-off 160/7

    16.1 bang! That was the perfect yorker. Negi looked to make room and drill it away through point, but it sneaked under his bat and pegged back off stump 141/5
    16.2 and he's gone first ball! That was a length ball, angled in, and it stopped on the pitch and Dhoni clipped it straight into short midwicket's hands 141/6

    1.4 that's a length ball wide outside off, and Sehwag normally feasts on that, but this one he's hit uppishly, and McCullum's claiming a catch at cover point. Sehwag's standing his ground... He's dived to his left and taken it very low in front of his body, and yes, it's just about carried into his hands 3/1
    5.3 this time Faf gets under it! Another slower ball, and again Manan looks to make room. He pops it up in the air behind the bowler, and Faf shuffles backwards from mid-off and this time settles under it, falling backwards as he catches it in front of his chest 24/4
    4.2 off stump goes for a wander. That was a length ball from Nehra, and Saha played an ugly swipe across the line and missed 24/2
    4.6 short ball, down the leg side, and Nehra's dismissed Maxwell with a rubbish ball. He looked to pull, got a little bit of glove on it, and Dhoni tumbles to his left to take the low catch 24/3

    10.2 and Ashwin replies by knocking out his off stump. He made room to slash through the off side but this ball didn't turn, went with the arm, and beat his bat 61/7
    7.1 and he strikes first ball! That isn't a great delivery. It's short, and Bailey shapes to cut, but that turns away sharply and he has to reach for it, and in the end he slaps it straight to McCullum at short cover 34/5
    7.3 and now he holes out. It was tossed up outside off, and he went for the slog-sweep and picked out the man at deep midwicket 34/6

    14.2 and Raina cleans him up next ball. That wasn't quite short enough to pull, and it kept a bit low, sneaking under his bat to crash into middle and off 90/8

    14.4 clears his front leg, looks to hit over the top, and can only scoop it straight down mid-off's throat 90/9
    18.2 looks to go over the top, and this time he isn't near the pitch of the ball. The ball turns away, takes his top edge, and that's an easy catch to long-on, running in almost to mid-on 117/10
