    2.2 caught at deep square leg! Warner took on Praveen, trying to pull off the front foot and clear what is a huge boundary. He didn't make proper contact and sent the ball soaring. Gambhir back-pedaled to get into position and judged the catch well a few yards in from the boundary 19/1
    6.6 Finch has been run out! By two yards. Hussey dabbed the ball towards backward point and set off, Finch responded quickly. Jadeja was quicker at point, running to his left, picking up cleanly, and firing the throw on the move back to Dhoni, who broke the stumps with Finch well short 49/3
    2.5 edged and juggled once, juggled twice and finally caught! Marsh pushes forward at a delivery that slants across him and edges to Virender Sehwag's left at first slip. Sehwag fumbles on the first attempt and tumbles, as he tumbles he reaches out to tap the ball further in the air, so Dhoni, who moved to his left, can take the catch 20/2
    13.3 caught and bowled! Hussey's popped one straight back to the bowler, one of the easier return chances Jadeja will take in his career. He slower the pace on the ball and it stopped on Hussey as he tried to drive on the leg side 93/5
    8.3 Jadeja again and another run out! Hussey cut the ball towards Jadeja's left at backward point. He didn't want to run for Jadeja had moved quickly and made a sliding save. Bailey, however, had run a long way down from the non-striker's end. Jadeja got to his feet quickly and threw to Rahul Sharma, who broke the stumps with Bailey not in the frame 54/4
    18.2 a direct hit from cover and Wade's gone! The ball was full outside off, Wade drove it with power along the ground to Rohit Sharma, who was in the circle. He fielded cleanly and, seeing that Lee had sent Wade back, took his time, lined up the stumps and threw them down. Wade dived full length but it wasn't enough 121/7
    17.3 that is a lightning stumping from Dhoni. He collected the ball so close to the bails that he barely had to move to take them off, just a mere push forward. Marsh had stretched forward to drive on the off side and dragged his back foot out of his crease just a little 119/6
    not out
    18.3 edged and caught! McKay pokes at a good length ball that leaves the right-hander and Dhoni dives to his right to take a low catch 121/8
    19.3 Hogg moved across his stumps to work the ball on the leg side but was trapped plumb by a fuller ball 130/9
    19.4 worked off the pads through midwicket and the fourth run-out ends the innings. Raina came sprinting in from the deep, picked up the ball with one hand and threw accurately to Dhoni, who collected the ball over the bails and ran out Doherty 131/10
