    2.1 Gambhir's played on here, Shapoor has struck, in recent times Gambhir's problems have been generally been with the outside edge, this time it is the inside edge as he pokes at the ball, middle stump is reclining on the ground, it was a short of length ball just outside off, Gambhir's feet doesn't move much as he plays that weak prod 15/1
    4.1 wicket number two for Shapoor, India's openers worrying form continues, this was just outside off, Sehwag wafts and gets a thin edge through to the keeper, Sehwag waits on the back foot, doesn't move his feet at all as he opens the face a touch to try work the ball to the off side 22/2
    15.4 Afghanistan have held on to the the catch this time! Kohli looks to launch that one over long-off, seemed to have hit it quite well, but it doesn't have the legs, long-off latches on to it, it's Nabi who take a terrific overhead catch, and immediately signals to the crowd in celebration, huge wicket that, it was a 114/4
    10.1 Yuvraj falls, he chops a ball outside off to short third man, some glimpses of the old Yuvraj in that innings, but it ends at 18, he looked to power that one, but he slices it through to the fielder 68/3
    19.2 not a bad comeback though, Nabi has Raina bowled, Raina was charging down looking for the big hit, he misses and that crashes into off stump 148/5

    3.5 the Mohammad Shahzad show is over, he was swinging at everything, this time he doesn't connect properly, an edge loops towards mid-on, Yuvraj is waiting for that, Afghanistan lose their first wicket 26/1
    7.1 strikes first ball! a straight length delivery heading for leg, Mangal misses and he is struck in front, Taufel thinks about it for a bit before raising the finger, Afghanistan have lost their captain, can they maintain their momentum? 52/2
    11.2 Yuvraj gets his second, Karim Sadiq is gone, he went for the heave to midwicket, a top edge and the ball swirls to Gambhir at deep midwicket, Gambhir settles under it and collects it calmly 75/3
    11.3 and another one for Yuvraj, who may not have set the stage alight with the bat but he has got his third with the ball, gets this one to spin away after drifting in, a thin outside edge and Dhoni doesn't make another mistake, two new batsmen at the crease 75/4
    16.5 Ashwin has got the dangerman, he pauses an eternity before delivering, waiting to see what the batsman will do, Nabi charges out to meet the delivery, looks to hammer it but edges it, loops towards mid-off where Rohit awaits 119/7
    12.1 Afghanistan falling apart here, Shenwari chips it back to Ashwin, and that's the third wicket in six deliveries, they are now 76 for 5, it was a length ball on middle stump, nothing dangerous about it, but that was tamely pushed back 76/5
    14.6 that looked like a huge inside-edge there, a short of length ball on off and middle, the batsman was looking to work it to the leg side, struck on the pads but it sounded like an inside edge there, Rauf thinks there is not bat involved and lifts the finger 100/6
    17.4 slow bouncer this time from Balaji, looking to pull again but misses, struck on the body, Najibullah has a hamstring problem and has been struggling to run, he sets off for a single, Naib wasn't interested which meant the hobbling Najibullah has to turn back and try make his ground, the throw from Dhoni is to the bowler, Balaji collects and breaks the stumps with his arm, early enough to beat the dive from Najibullah, after many replays, the umpires are convinced it is, Afghanistan lose their eighth 125/8
