Mohammad Asif to Uthappa, no run, good length, tidy delivery, no movement, Uthappa defends with an inside-edge

4.2

Mohammad Asif to Uthappa, FOUR, safe hit, Uthappa seeing the length of a fuller delivery and driving it hard and over mid-off's head, just playing through the line and picking his spot

4.3

Mohammad Asif to Uthappa, 1 run, good length outside off, again he uses the soft hands to dab into the covers and calls for the run

4.5

Mohammad Asif to Uthappa, no run, short delivery, kicking off the surface outside off, Uthappa commits himself to the front foot and gets beaten by the extra bounce

5.4

Sohail Tanvir to Uthappa, OUT, another one goes! Uthappa tries to hit this one over the infield but totally mistimes it, lobbing it up into the air and Afridi doesnt have to move an inch at extra cover to hold the simplest of catches

India 40/2   RV Uthappa 8 (11b 1x4)
