    18.3 that's all over for Gambhir, he's danced down the ground but the bowler fired that into the pads, lofted that high towards square leg but that doesn't have the timing, Lamsan comes around and picks off a clean take, that was a soft dismissal and a big boost for Hong Kong 136/2
    14.3 Relief for Hong Kong. Sehwag is gone. Najeeb strikes. Sehwag rushes down the track and tries to heave it to wide long-on region but edges a dolly to backward point. 127/1
    24.6 And Rohit is run out. Dhoni was squared up but managed to push it to cover point. For some reason, Rohit had charged across, perhaps he wanted his captain to retain the strike, and couldn't get back in time to beat the direct hit 159/3

    12.3 stumped by a lovely leg break. He ran down the track, the ball dipped in front of him on the middle stump line and turned past the outside edge. Chawla was guilty in his earlier days of bowling too many googlies and not concentrating enough on the conventional one but he is making amends these days. A session with Warne recently has helped. 49/2
    1.3 Dead plumb. It curves in to the middle stump line and the batsman can't get his bat around the front pad in time. 4/1
    17.3 soft dismissal. He couldn't keep a straight drive down. The ball dipped on him and he didn't quite lean forward into the shot. 54/4
    16.2 stumped by a googly this time. He charged down the track, had a big heave, missed but Dhoni didn't 54/3
    22.1 another stumping. This time by a big spinning leg break. It drifted in towards leg stump before turning sharply past the lunging batsman. Dhoni does the final rites. 67/5
    29.3 Irfan is run out. Yusuf floated it outside off stump, Irfan turned to right of square leg where RP rushed to and fired a throw to Yusuf who collected the ball awkwardly in front of the stumps but managed to break the stumps 91/6
    33.4 another run out. Pushed to backward point and only Lamsam ran and he had to run back. Too late. 109/8
    30.4 Wicket no 7. He top edges a slog sweep to mid-on. Another wicket for Chawla who has bowled quite a few legbreaks in this game and has got them to turn. The right arm used to go too high and in an angle, almost touching the right ear and he used to bowl lots of googlies but was unable to get the leg break to turn much. Now he has corrected his right-arm position, at times he even gets them rounder to impart more turn. 99/7

    36.4 does it on his own with a yorker. Really full on the middle stump and he played all around it 118/9
    36.5 Caught by Dhoni. It held its line after landing around the off stump line, he got a thin nick to defensive poke. Game over. 118/10
