    14.5 sharp catch, Ponting! India lose a third as Gambhir rises and slashes a short and wide one straight to the captain, at backward point 59/3
    4.4 rapped on the pads and he's gone! Tendulkar, already given a work over by Bracken, shapes to flick a full one leg stump but misses, they all appeal and the verdict is given in Bracken's favour 20/1
    13.5 false shot gets Hopes a wicket! Pathan pokes at one that pitches on leg stump and goes across him, and Hayden takes a good low catch at gully 55/2
    15.1 and another one bites the dust! Hopes gets a second in quick time as Rohit plays the poorest of leaden-footed drives to one shaping away from the body and edges a regulation take to Gilchrist, cuing celebrations around the ground 59/4
    27.6 thats the breakthrough for Hogg! Yuvraj throws it all away, clubbing a long hop out to wide deep long-on, where Clark covers good ground and cups the catch near his ankles 115/5
    34.3 ah, a poor call! Impatiently driven into the covers, with too much bottom hand, Dhoni calls for the single but a diving, sliding Rohit is caught just short by a terrific direct hit from Hayden and Dhoni pays for that risky call 134/6
    37.5 gone! Uthappa makes room and tries to play a cute little dab, but the change of pace from Johnson does him in, and he gets a thin touch through to Gilchrist 150/8
    35.6 undone by pace and bounce! Johnson springs in a short one that Harbhajan tamely pulls up into the air, Gilchrist takes an easy catch and then erupts in celebration 141/7
    38.4 stumped! Hogg proposes, Sreesanth accepts, dancing out and swiping across the line, he misses the wrong 'un and Gilchrist takes care of the rest 152/9
    not out
    41.2 edged and well held! Bracken moves around the stumps and gets Munaf edging to Gilchrist, who initially moves to his left but adjusts to pluck a good one-handed catch to his right ... thats five dismissals for him today and he jumps about in celebration 153/10
