    15.4 soft dismissal, is looking to drive, the ball doesn't turn much and he checks his shot and lobs back a simple catch to Harbhajan 77/2
    8.3 taken, finally a wicket, this time he tries to manufacture a pull shot, walking across the stumps, but the ball is not short enough and he gets a top edge that lobs to Gambhir at square leg 48/1
    36.2 caught! Harbhajan flights it and gives Sangakkara room, he reaches out and tries to drive through cover and ends up hitting it straight to Raina, Sangakkara's angry with himself as he walks off 199/3

    40.5 are we onto something here? Kandamby plays an ill-advised slog-sweep here. It's invitingly flighted by Harbhajan, and he gets a top edge, and holes out to midwicket 217/4
    43.3 another wicket goes, run-out that too, Samaraweera makes room, Nehra follows him, the balls off the pad, Randiv wants a leg-bye, but is sent back, and slips while turning, and it's an easy run-out for Dhoni and Nehra 226/5
