    40.6 edged and gone! Yuvraj tosses up the arm ball, it stays low as van Wyk makes room and cuts, and the thinnest of under-edges is well held by Dhoni! 168/5
    3.1 madness! Short of a length on leg stump, van Wyk works it to square leg, no one's there and de Villiers calls for the run, RP does the fielding himself and van Wyk sends his partner back, bowler fires in a throw back to Dravid, who disturbs the bails but replays show de Villiers' bat was just in the air after he dived full stretch 2/1
    5.2 bowled 'em! RP follows up the short delivery with one fuller outside off stump and Kallis defends with a good gap between bat and pad, the ball coming in off the inside-edge to disturb off stump, and thats the biggest wicket of them all as far as India are concerned 7/2
    13.3 gone! Short and wide, rank long-hop, but Gibbs just gets back and cracks that off the back foot to Karthik at cover, who holds a neat catch 46/3
    32.3 there's the big breakthrough! Not a good ball at all, very short outside off stump but Duminy chases it, slashing in the air and Dravid, at a sort of short third man, only has to cup his hands above his head and take it easily 131/4

    28.1 there's a wicket! Back of a length delivery, Ganguly comes out and reaches for the square-drive, but can only steer it into the safe hands of Gibbs at backward point! 134/1
    31.5 bowled 'em! Having been kept quite for four deliveries, he makes room to dab a tossed-up delivery, but loses the plot as the ball turns in sharply and takes the inside-edge onto middle and off...Tendulkar falls in the 90s for the second consecutive match and yet again a rookie spinner has his number 140/3
    30.6 caught and bowled! Langeveldt drops one short, and gets it to come onto Dravid quickly, at a sharp height, and as he jumps up and tries to turn it to square leg the bat face closes and the resultant leading-edge is easily held by the bowler 140/2

    32.4 cleaned up! Ntini strikes with a full delivery outside off stump, drawing Dhoni forward and producing a false shot, a poor attempt at a drive, the ball sneaks through the big bat-and-pad gap and thuds into the base of off stump 142/4
