    2.2 edged and what a superb take from Dhoni, diving full length to his right and holding it an inch off the ground to send de Villiers back to the hut, and again Asif has his man, pitching one on middle stump and deviating it off the seam to flummox the batsman, classical pace bowler's dismissal 20/1
    12.4 the set-up works, as Sibanda gets tangled up pulling one thats not quite there for that shot, he's very late on the shot and the ball takes the top-edge and balloons up high behind the stumps for Dhoni to keep an eye on it and pouch a simple take 80/2
    26.6 gone! He gets into position to pull a fractionally short ball on leg stump, hitting with the wind and with little power and Harbhajan, running around from deep midwicket, judges it to perfection 159/4
    12.6 tiiiiiiiiiimber! Kemp's woeful run at the international level continues, as like against Asif at Bangalore he junges forward and drives lustily, only to completely misread the line and his off stump is pegged back 80/3
    36.2 all over for him! Fernando doesnt waste time in this spell, following up the lovely yorker with a length delivery on middle and leg, which Boucher gets under and hits high in the air and down Asif's throat at long-on 217/5
    40.2 and he goes, miscuing an attempted lofted drive for six up in the air for Asif to hold another easy take down at long-on and Sehwag gets his man! 234/6
    43.5 good catch from Ganguly! Morkel comes out, Rafique fires it in flat on leg stump, and the aerial flick off the pads is held inches off the ground by a diving Ganguly at mid-on 263/8
    41.5 what a catch! Chigumbura gets down on one knee and slams this high and down to long-on, the ball is in the air for some time and comes down to where Harbhajan lines it up perfectly on the ropes, jumps and takes it inches inside the boundary, immense effort and doesnt Harbhajan love it? 247/7
