    2.3 oh well, Sehwag gives it away, short and wide from Malinga, Sehwag hops and forces it over the in-field, but third man is around and he runs to his right to gleefully hold on 14/1
    18.5 oh dear, Sachin has played on, he had earlier tried to steer Angelo from the middle and leg line, tried to back away again to one angled in and run it to third man from very close to off stump, and this time he chopped it on 89/2
    35.6 Virat is down on the ground in pain, he might be gone too, a risky single it was going to be as he pushed to mid on and set off, a direct hit, and he is gone by miles, he is writhing in pain, but he will have to get up and walk back, needless single, it was the last ball of the over, did that have something to do with it? He is being helped off the ground now 181/6
    25.5 Super Dilshan grabs the screamer at point, short, wide, Rohit cracks the cut, does not bother to keep it down, it flies to Dilshan's left, he may be former captain but is still a top fielder, he reacts immediately, bends low to his left, pouches the ball safely and tumbles down only to be engulfed by his team-mates as he gets up 122/3
    32.1 well, he has indeed fallen to the short ball ultimately, it was nowhere as sharp as the short balls Malinga aimed at his ribs, it was angled across him, the pull was on, Raina went at it too eagerly, and it ballooned up high to settle into the hands of deep midwicket 157/4
    33.4 Dhoni done in by the short ball now, he was not in a good position to play the pull, but still went for it, the ball looped over Malinga at wide mid on, and he took a good catch running back 167/5
