22 September 2007 - night match (20-over match)

Lee to Sehwag, no run, just back of a length outside off, Sehwag stands leaden-footed and has a go, but misses completely


Lee to Sehwag, no run, fuller ball, on off stump, Sehwag gets behind it and pushes back to Lee, who collects and feigns a throw back at the stumps, electric atmosphere at Durban

India 5/0   V Sehwag 0* (2b)

Bracken to Sehwag, 1 leg bye, full but down leg stump, a hint of swing, Sehwag mistimes the shot, off the pads, to square leg


Bracken to Sehwag, 1 run, back of a length again, off stumpish, Sehwag stands up and just pushes towards point, there's further hesitation between the runners but they get a single in the end

India 9/0   V Sehwag 1* (4b)

Lee to Sehwag, no run, short of a length on middle and leg, sits up and forces Sehwag up on the toes, he plays it to leg, Lee steams in and collects and has some advice for Sehwag


Lee to Sehwag, no run, slower delivery this time, close to a yorker outside off stump, well picked and driven into the covers, where Symonds fields and cuts off any thoughts of a single


Lee to Sehwag, no run, good ball, right on a length with no room to work with and Sehwag gets behind the line, defending to Symonds in the covers again


Lee to Sehwag, 1 run, short ball just outside off stump and Sehwag does well to get tall and drop it to the leg side, with soft hands, and Gambhir and Sharma scamper the single as Lee runs across and fields

India 10/0   V Sehwag 2* (8b)

Bracken to Sehwag, 1 run, full, clubbed back down the ground, Johnson at mid-on does well to stop it

India 11/0   V Sehwag 3* (9b)

Clark to Sehwag, 1 run, back of a length on leg stump, tucked away for one


Clark to Sehwag, 1 run, short of a length on leg stump, Sehwag shuffles and works it fine for another single

India 22/0   V Sehwag 5* (11b)

Johnson to Sehwag, FOUR, shot! The ball's full and just a tad wide, but more than enough for Sehwag to stand and square-drive that smack through the two point fielders


Johnson to Sehwag, OUT, but he's gone now! Johnson bowls this one back of a length, the ball sits up more than Sehwag expected, and he gets an outside-edge going for a slash over point, cramped for room, and Gilchrist gleefully takes it

V Sehwag c †Gilchrist b Johnson 9 (25m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

India 30/1   V Sehwag 9 (13b 1x4)
