2.1 Zaheer holds his arms aloft and celebrates, he has done Hussey in here, it was that delivery on a fuller length and lurking close to off stump, Hussey decided to go hard at it from the crease and the inside edge clatters in to off stump 7/1
    3.3 Aravind gets Vijay, reward for being consistent around off stump, on a length and moving across him, Vijay goes for a poke at it from the crease and gets a healthy edge which AB gets to diving in front of first slip 16/2
    4.1 Raina departs, he tries to launch in to the big slog-swat over deep midwicket, the short ball hurries on to him, he is late on the shot and gets a big top-edge that goes in to the hands of point, Zaheer first looks incredulously at Raina for attempting that kind of shot off him, then gives a send-off 17/3
    5.4 gone! Badri holes out to long off, he had decided to go over the top, was nowhere near the pitch of the ball as he came down the track, and just managed to loft it high in the air, Mithun came in from long off, got under the ball and took a well judged catch 22/4
    13.3 Virat Kohli picks up a wicket with a long hop, back of a length and sitting up, Saha had lots of options, bent the knee and played a swat-sweep kind of stroke that carried right to the man at deep square leg, Virat is smiling at his fortune, the ball got on a touch quickly to the batsman 64/5
    not out
    15.1 Dan it is, the arm ball gets Bravo, tossed up around off and gets him to push forward outside the line for the turn, there isn't any turn, Bravo seemed to have got an inside edge on to pad, or did he, uimpire Hariharan through there was none, AB the ever-alert man had already got to the ball in front of Dwayne and taken the bails off, the ball would have just taken top off off 79/6
    17.4 Zaheer takes the steepler, keeps his eyes on the ball all long, Morkel this time went for his favourite hitting zone over deep midwicket, but gets it off the toe end of the bat high in the sky, Zaheer watches it like a hawk at midwicket and takes a tumbling catch in the end 100/7
    18.5 the Karnataka seam duo combine to get Ashwin, short ball banged in, he went for the big pull over midwicket, but only got a top edge that Mithun took easily at deep square leg 110/8
