    9.6 India have the breakthrough, on off stump, Jaques steps forward and tries to loft it over the off side, the ball stops on him and flies off the edge, Sehwag at mid-off takes a simple catch 64/1
    27.6 splendid catch! Tossed up on midle stump, Watson goes on the front foot and flicks it in the air towards midwicket where Raina dives forward to take a sharp low catch 157/4
    15.2 caught at short fine leg! That was a touch short and Ponting rocked back and tried to pull, he didn't connect well and hit it straight to Tendulkar at short fine leg 92/2
    18.1 caught! But that so nearly went down, Martyn edges it as though he was giving slip practice and Dravid fumbles the easiest of chances not once but twice. Howvere, Dhoni was alert enough to pouch it off the rebound 113/3
    46.1 and as I say that, Clarke lofts a full delivery down the ground, he didn't time that well enough and Raina at long-off takes a simple catch 230/7

    40.5 run-out! Quick thinking from Sehwag. Clarke drove it straight back to him and Haddin was backing up too far, Sehwag fielded the ball and flicked it back on to the stumps and Haddin was short of his crease 200/6
    49.2 that's the end of the innings. Full ball and Hogg throws his bat at it and skies it high in the air, Dhoni runs around and takes a well-judged catch 244/10
    47.1 another one goes down, that pitches on off stump, bounces a touch extra and moves away from Johnson who tries to run it down to third man but gets an edge through to Dhoni. 232/8
    48.5 Munaf picks up his third. Clark backs away to make room again and flat bats it down the ground straight down long-off's throat 243/9

    5.5 the first wicket falls, short of a length and wide outside off stump, Dravid tries to loft over cover but doesn't get the elevation and offers a simple catch. 20/1
    7.2 and Tendulkar goes as well! Full and outside off stump, Tendulkar goes for the drive and gets a thickish outside edge, Haddin takes it easily 34/4
    5.6 bowled first ball! short of a length, pitches on middle and off and moves away a touch, Pathan plays inside the line and the ball crashes into off stump 20/2
    6.6 a disastrous mix up and Sehwag is run-out. He creamed that through covers but the ball pulled up in the soggy outfield. The batsmen ran two and Sehwag went for the third. Tendulkar initially set off but then decided against it. However, Sehwag kept coming and was left stranded mid-pitch when the throw came in from the deep to the wicketkeeper 34/3
    7.6 Johnson is on fire! Short on a length on off stump, moves a shade away, Yuvraj fends aimlessly outside off stump, gets an edge and first slip gleefully accepts the offering 35/5
