    21.3 And they have broken through. Finally. Gambhir is gone. Full in length, just shaping outside off stump and he tried to run it down to third man but sent it off the face of the bat to Akmal. 155/1
    23.4 Cramped for room and he is gone! It came in off a length, towards middle and off, from round the stumps angle and Sehwag tried to stay adjacent to the line and cut it to third man but the extra bounce meant he can only edge it to Akmal. It was a leg spinning slower one that broke back in sharply with bounce! 174/2
    42.5 Gul takes out Yuvraj. It landed on a length, on the middle, skidded in and Yuvraj was beside the line and was looking to punch-drive but the ball was tad fuller than he thought and it skidded through 271/6
    28.2 he's holed out, he tossed that up there, Yusuf stood tall and tried to whack that over long-off but he's struck that straight to Rao, hardly got his timing right through this brief stay, 12-ball 3 for Yusuf on debut, Afridi strikes 199/3
    36.3 cleans him up with a slider. It was slow through the air, landed on middle and leg and skidded towards leg. Rohit thought it would turn and was getting ready to cut to the off side and in the end, just managed to chop it on to his leg stump. Afridi points his finger to the skies and Rohit heads back to the hutch. 231/4
    41.5 trapped him in front with a full toss. Dhoni took couple of steps down the track and tried to swing it across the line, missed, and was hit in front of middle and leg. On the back leg. Was it going down leg, though? Any way it doesn't matter. He is out. 269/5
    48.4 Caught at deep square leg. Fullish, on the legs, swung straight to the fielder. Raina made 26 from 22 324/8
    48.1 low full toss outside off, Irfan drives but makes contact with the toe end of the bat and spoons to Malik at covers. India are on 322 for 7 322/7

    2.3 Gone this time, a blinder from Rohit Sharma at cover point, Butt cuts it and Rohit dives to his left and takes a superb, low, one-handed catch 14/1
    12.4 Done in by a full toss from round the stumps. It swung in a touch and Akmal swatted it to mid-on and he is livid with himself.... Pakistan lose their fourth wicket. Just when they were getting some momentum. 81/4
    2.4 And another one, Pakistan are in deep trouble here. Angling away from the right-hander, tried to dab to third man but only manages to feather a simple catch to Dhoni. Ashoka de silva had no hesitation in sending Younis on his way 14/2
    4.5 That's the big one. Praveen Kumar is on fire here. pitches on a length on middle and shaped in, goes past his inside edge and raps him on the pads and that's the end of Yousuf 26/3
    16.2 Ishant takes out Misbah. Probing delivery outside off that straightened off a length and Misbah stabbed it to Dhoni. He was trying to run it down to third man but ... 94/5
    33.5 goes for the lofted shot over mid-off but edges it to right of mid-off where its held safely. And then they were one. 180/9
    22.5 stumped! Afridi telegraphed his intentions as he ran down the track too early and that allowed Piyush to bowl it quicker and outside off. Afridi had also moved outside leg and couldn't get bat on ball. 138/6
    26.6 He's got him this time. Another googly, better direction than the previous one, Tanvir tries to hit it against the spin, he closes the face too early and the resulting leading edge hands Chawla a return catch 156/7
    29.4 After two dot balls, Gul loses his patience. He tries to loft him over long-on but only manages to find Ishant Sharma in the deep. A smart catch from Ishant but he seems to have injured himself in the attempt. 169/8

    35.4 Dead plumb. Done by one that skidded on straight. It landed on a length around off and middle and caught him in front. He had expected it to turn and had stretched his front leg across and was surprised by the one that went on straight. India win by 140 runs. 190/10
