3.6 Full in length and outside off stump, Vijay prefers to press back and cut. Perhaps not the length for it. The ball spun in to take the inside edge and went on to hit the stumps. As Matt Prior said, 'Never pat a burning dog and cut an offspinner!' 27/1
    13.6 No Mongoose bumps this time. Full delivery on the middle and off line, slower one, Hayden lifts it straight to long-on. 119/4
    8.5 Done in by the short ball. Again. Raina goes for the pull but he mistimes it .. sort of carves it to Shikhar Dhawan, who runs in from deep midwicket to take it 69/2
    13.5 Done in by the slow bouncer. Around 106 kmph short ball. Dhoni was made to wait and he couldn't time his pull shot well. The ball lobs straight up on the on side. 119/3

    6.1 Chopped on! Length delivery outside off stump, Dhawan goes for the cut but perhaps too full for that shot. Thushara screams in joy. 46/1
    16.3 And that's it folks. Tendulkar too is gone. He holes out to long-on. What a collapse today after he retired hurt. 105/8
    11.6 Meanwhile, Tiwary too is gone. He went down on his knee for the slog sweep but hits it tamely to short midwicket. Gone! 82/4
    9.5 Ambati rushes down the track for the lofted hit but Raina pushes it quicker, shorter and it goes on straight outside off and Rayudu swings inside the line..Stumped! 66/2
    10.3 Thushara takes a real skier! Bravo went for the lofted hit over long-off .. Thushara came in from the deep and then had to back pedal and he fell on his back as he held on to the catch. His team-mates mob him 69/3
    12.6 How did Vijay catch this? Here is what happenned. Pollard hits a skier between long-on and long-off. Vijay moves from long-on .. Thushara from long-off ...The ball was falling behind Thushara, who is standing just ahead of Vijay. Thushara gets his hands back, behind him and tries to catch it .. Vijay is distracted as Thushara almost falls on him . Vijay takes his eyes off the ball but manages to hold on to the catch! He just stretched his hands out forward even as he yanked his head away 86/5
    13.4 Sathish is run out! It rolled off the pads to the off side ... Sathish wants a single and is sent back .. the fielder rushes in from short cover region and flicks a direct hit with Sathish just short of his crease. Third ump says that's out. Crowd roar! 89/6
    14.2 What a collapse! Crumbling away! Dhoni and the bowler react as if it was bowled! It landed on the off and middle and straightened to hit the pad in front of off stump. Dhoni runs forward and the bowler rushes forward in celebration. Some one appeals finally and the umpire puts his hand out. 89/7
    19.6 The off stump has been pegged back. Full, straight, tilting in from round the stumps, Harbhajan goes for the swing across the line and misses. Timber! 141/9
