Taylor to Gambhir, 2 runs, just over second slip What a cracker of a bouncer. That almost took out Gambhir. Superb delivery. Gambhir hopped in alarm, taking the eyes of it and fended it in an ungainly manner but the ball popped just behind the leaping slip fielder.

Taylor to Yuvraj Singh, no run, fullish, outside off, Yuvraj tries to square drive but doesn't connect. Great buzz around the arena. The Indian fans are clearing thier throat. Singh is King, says one banner.


Taylor to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, Fabulicious pull. He cleared the front leg and swat-pulled it superbly to the midwicket boundary.


Taylor to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, Oh gorgeous pick-up flick to midwicket boundary. It's the shot that Dhoni used to play a lot, that twirl of the bottom-hand. Yuvraj added beauty to it now. Lovely bat swing and he whipped the full delivery to the boundary.

India 126/4   JE Taylor 3-0-35-0
