Malinga to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, back of length delivery outside off, Yuvraj won't mind this.. he calmly steers it down to third man to give strike to Kohli

13.3

Malinga to Kohli, 2 runs, this is nicely driven to deep extra cover, all along the ground, for a couple. It was full and it was wide outside off too

13.4

Malinga to Kohli, 1 run, it's full but it's too wide, easily punched to deep cover for a single that brings yet another half-century for Kohli. he keeps working like a well-oiled machine..

13.5

Malinga to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, full and on the stumps, but not quite a yorker, gives Yuvraj some space to squeeze it out to deep cover

13.6

Malinga to Kohli, FOUR, full and too wide! Malinga is getting the length right but the line is completely off.. This is too wide and all Kohli has to do is get some bat on it, which he does, to pick up a boundary to third man
