    7.1 Two in Two! Dinesh Karthik goes this time, it was an in-ducker from outside off and Karthik played down the wrong line as he played the forward defensive. He missed the ball and was struck flush on the pads in front of off. It looked plumb despite the fact that he was standing out of the crease. Replays suggest it would have carried over the stumps, with the bounce but well... 39/2
    6.6 got him! Sehwag has never liked the short ball aimed at the body and Mills did well to persist with that line of attack. Sehwag was in trouble once earlier looking to pull, this time he gets some glove on it as it goes down the leg and it is through to the keeper for an easy take. Sehwag is gone. 39/1
    9.2 Thanks for coming! It was all so simple; something that you see usually in the catching practice in the morning before the game. This delivery kicked up from short of length outside off stump and Rohit opened the bat-face and guided it straight to first slip. Simple. Tuffey smiles. 44/3
    16.5 And ladies and gentlemen, we have another man swallowed in that slip cordon. Very simple again. Fullish and outside off stump, Yuvraj has a waft and Taylor takes a catch. Too simple, some might say. Anyway that's that. India tottering at 62 for 6 62/6
    11.2 Oh well! Edged straight to second slip. It was a short-of-length delivery outside off stump and Raina stabbed at it, bat away from the body, and it goes straight to the slip cordon. The ball cut away from him and he ended up chasing it. 50/4
    13.5 Dhoni is run out and he walks. His scratchy innings comes to an end. This one was jabbed close to the off side and he wants a single. His partner doesn't. Yuvraj took couple of steps down the track and froze. And Dhoni tries to turn back. Too late. Tuffey had already screamed past him, swooped on the ball and flicked a direct hit. Gone! 53/5
    28.2 And another slip catch. Loverly! It was floated well outside off stump and Jadeja chased it for a big drive. Styris takes the catch. Where is Taylor I say? Williamson was out for a duck but picks up a wicket now. Life can't be that bad eh? 84/9
    19.1 Awww. That slip catch again. Well... the top order didn't last. Why would the lower-order batsmen? It was the short of length delivery that kicked up outside off and PK steers it straight to slip cordon. 67/7
    25.6 Yep. You guessed it right. Another slip catch. Fullish and outside off stump and Mithun edges his drive. Just two more now. How quickly can NZ wrap this up? 82/8
    29.3 And it's all over. Full and outside off and Nehra drives it straight to mid-off. NZ win by 200 runs. Magnificent thumping win! A rout! 88/10
