10.1

Mathews to Dravid, no run, loosener at 117.6 kph doled up outside off, Dravid does not want anything to do with it

10.2

Mathews to Dravid, 1 run, lucky! Mathews cranks it up marginally and shortens the length, might have moved in a touch as well as Dravid though of cutting away. The under edge missed the stumps, but not by much

10.3

Mathews to Sehwag, no run, this time he takes it away from Sehwag. Starts it from well outside off, so he lets it go without issues

10.4

Mathews to Sehwag, no run, comes in from much closer to the stumps this time, Sehwag is cramped as he looks to cut and can't elude point

10.5

Mathews to Sehwag, no run, back of a length ball at 127 kph, Sehwag stays back and defends down the pitch

10.6

Mathews to Sehwag, no run, pitched up, 126 kph and Sehwag plays the forward defensive back to Mathews.

India 62/1   AD Mathews 1-0-1-0
12.1

Mathews to Sehwag, 1 wide, ah, attempted bouncer from Mathews, who got carried away and banged it in really short, it was called a wide

12.1

Mathews to Sehwag, FOUR, not too short this time, but short enough for Sehwag to play a forceful pull despite not getting over it. It hit the splice and bobbled away safely through midwicket for four

12.2

Mathews to Sehwag, 1 run, OUT, Dravid has got himself out here trying to run a totally needless second! Sehwag drove to mid off and they took off for a quick single. Malinga misfielded and Dravid belatedly decided to take a second one, but was caught well short at the non-striker's end. Huge and unnecessary loss for India here! Fatal error in judgement and Dravid is distraught. He should be. He was late on the decision to run two, and could have done away with it altogether.

R Dravid run out 18 (64m 33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.54
