    2.4 short ball on off and Gilchrist goes for the hook, not quite getting over the ball as it came on to him faster than antichipated and he scoops up to Yuvraj at mid-on who takes the catch cat-cool 16/1
    27.3 Hayden gets down early to play the sweep to a full ball, and sends it just behind square for a good catch by Chawla who keeps his head and hangs on well 135/5
    4.2 Ponting goes! The batsman looked to pull a short one round from outside off, the ball not quite getting up, and the inside edge crashes hard on to the sticks 19/2
    5.5 fabulous delivery from Ishant, taking the inside edge as Clarke goes to forward defend but is beaten by the inswing, the ball coming back in off the seam from outside off and the pace, and Dhoni takes the catch 24/3
    23.1 outside off, some room, and Symonds drives up straight and hard aerially out to Kumar in the deep on the on-side, deep midwicket in fact 124/4
    46.6 outside off, Hussey goes to pull it to midwicket, misses, the ball goes behind and they race through but Dhoni throws back to the bowler who throws on to the sticks 212/7
    38.5 offers some width outside off, Hopes shapes to cut to point, and nicks a fine edge on the top of the blade, Dhoni begins to roar before he's even taken the ball 173/6
