Umar Gul to Gambhir, SIX, Release! Gambhir lines this one up and hits it baseball style over the leg side. That's off the meat of the bat. Powerful drive over the leg side and the ball thuds into the scoreboard!

Sohail Tanvir to Sharma, SIX, slower ball, on the stumps, Rohit waits on the ball and hits it to midwicket. Hafeez is there and should take it ... No! He gets hands to it but ends up palming the ball over the ropes
