Benn to Dhoni, FOUR runs, Dhoni clears his left foot and opens up, swinging a fullish delivery over midwicket for a crucial boundary, that'll ease the Indian nerves a bit

DJ Bravo to Karthik, SIX runs, too many short deliveries bowled at these two, especially Karthik, and he has no trouble getting forward and using the free swing of the bat to clear the deep midwicket boundary, nice clatter once he made contact with that one

DJ Bravo to Karthik, FOUR runs, attacking shot, just a fraction short on the off stump and Karthik handles it superbly, gets on the front foot and pulls it hard past midwicket for a boundary, the short delivery hasn't ruffled him yet
