Nehra to DJ Bravo, OUT, excellent catch by Dhoni, full and wide, goes hard at the drive, gets a thick edge and the Indian captain flings himself to his right to pluck that one-handed and see the back of Bravo

Nehra to DM Bravo, OUT, timber! In the blockhole on middle, Darren makes room to swing that past midwicket but misses and the stumps take a beating!

Pathan to Sarwan, 1 run, OUT, run out, poor calling there, there was no second in it, worked away behind square and he turns back to run in for the second but a powerful throw from Gautam Gambhir beats his valiant dive, Dhoni has no trouble clipping the bails to end his impressive knock

RR Sarwan run out (Gambhir/†Dhoni) 62 (90m 59b 5x4 1x6) SR: 105.08

Pathan to Chanderpaul, OUT, for a moment it seemed it would clear the ropes, swept it well to reach backward square leg but didn't time it as well as he would have liked, Nehra stood patiently, judged it well and ensured he didn't lose his balance once he had cupped it just inside the boundary, important breakthrough

S Chanderpaul c Nehra b Pathan 15 (23m 14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 107.14

Harbhajan Singh to Morton, OUT, stumped, brilliantly done, beaten through the air again, saw him coming down and fired it short outside off, Morton made no contact and Dhoni did the rest, finding him miles short

Nehra to Gayle, OUT, the break proves Gayle undoing! It was a hit-me ball, short and wide, Gayle went for his trademark cut but got a thick edge, probably due to a bit of extra bounce, straight to Dhoni, India strike.

CH Gayle c †Dhoni b Nehra 27 (16m 14b 6x4 0x6) SR: 192.85
