13.6

Umar Gul to Dhoni, 1 run, low full-toss on the pads, Dhoni drives down the pitch but can't get hold of it

India 105/3   MS Dhoni 1* (2b)

14.1

Shahid Afridi to Dhoni, 2 runs, fullish and on the off, driven to the on side, it's played softly enough for the batsmen to come back for a second

14.2

Shahid Afridi to Dhoni, no run, another quick, flat one from Afridi, can't get it away at all

14.3

Shahid Afridi to Dhoni, 2 runs, full and on the pads, worked away down to long-on, diving save from Asif

15.1

Umar Gul to Dhoni, 1 no ball, beamer fired in, bang on target as well, Dhoni dives out of the way, no-ball called immediately as Gul apologises

15.1

Umar Gul to Dhoni, no run, short one banged in, good pace on the ball, the angle comes in to Dhoni as well and he does well just to sway out of the way. Excellent bowling this from Gul

15.2

Umar Gul to Dhoni, OUT, Gul on fire! Another big, big wicket for Pakistan as Dhoni has an almighty heave at a full ball and does not quite make contact. The ball is coming in with the angle and homing in on the stumps. If Dhoni had connected that was going out of the ground. As it happens the stumps are shattered and it is Dhoni who has to leave the playing arena

MS Dhoni b Umar Gul 6 (9m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

India 111/4   MS Dhoni 6 (10b)
