India 15/0   V Sehwag 3* (4b)

3.1

Ntini to Sehwag, FOUR, very full and on the off stump. Sehwag gets quickly across to the off side and uses his wrists as much as he can to whip that through square-leg. That is a quality shot for four

3.2

Ntini to Sehwag, 1 bye, This one keeps low! Outside the off and it just rolls along the ground to the keeper. This pitch is going to be pretty tough to bat on. Sehwag plays and misses outside the off and the ball goes through to the keeper

India 33/1   V Sehwag 11* (10b 1x4)

5.1

Ntini to Sehwag, OUT, On fire! It's Sehwag gone now and India are in deep, deep trouble here. That was a soft dismissal after an extremely promising start from Sehwag. That was short of a length and outside the off, Sehwag plays away from his body without much conviction, trying to steer the ball through the off side and only manages an edge. Mark Boucher pouches the catch.
