    34.1 the bowling change works! Lands it on leg, Gambhir had already shuffled across the stumps a bit and had exposed the leg stump, the ball nipped in slightly and hit his pads, the umpire reckoned that was hitting leg, on seeing the pitch map, the ball looked like pitching on the border of the leg stump line 178/4
    9.1 the opening stand is over, Sehwag is gone, an ordinary delivery from McKay, short of length ball that was slanting down the leg side, should have been easily helped away, instead Sehwag closes the face too early, leading edge results, and the ball pops up for a simple catch to point, a sign of the poor form he is in 52/1
    18.1 just when Kohli was looking set, he tries to go over the top of the off side, stays at the crease and doesn't get the elevation, Forrest takes it at sweeper cover 90/2
    32.2 Rohit's thrown it away! Very similar to Kohli's dismissal, he tries to loft through the line off a length ball, he skies it to Starc who runs forward from long-on. Rohit probably didn't realise it takes a lot more power to clear the straight boundaries 166/3

    46.1 well is that a twist? Credit to the bowler here, he tossed it up and invited Raina to give him the charge, Raina almost ended up yorking himself, the ball went straight through the gap between bat and pad and thudded the stumps 239/5

    48.4 another twist! Doherty bowls this one a bit flatter, Jadeja gets on his knee and slogs and tries to clear deep midwicket, straight down Ponting's throat 257/6
