    1.4 Kulkarni strikes in his first over, another wide delivery, but there has been lots of bounce for him, Dravid reaches out to try and cut, only manages a thick edge to the keeper, did not move his feet much there, just reached out awkwardly with the bat 9/1
    5.2 pulled hard and pulled straight to shortish midwicket, short ball, Rahane goes hard for the pull but cannot place it wide of the fielder 31/2
    13.6 Pollard has the big wicket, Watson tries to wallop this one over deep midwicket, it bounced from just back of a length, and Watson's front-foot heave comes down in wide long on's hands 105/4
    11.2 oh dear, Binny has managed to run himself out, he missed the work on the leg side and charged out for the single as the ball rolled off pad down the pitch, but barged straight into the huge frame of Pollard, by the time he turned around, Pollard had strode towards the ball, and it needed just a kick from him to roll onto the stumps, Binny was just short, with Pollard between him and the stumps 84/3
    not out
    18.5 Kulkarni has another wicket, Menaria opens up to a near-yorker, and digs it out low to Kulkarni, who takes it well, and claims it immediately, they check the replays, find that the catch carried cleanly, and that Menaria had got to the ball on the full, he has to go this time 148/5
    19.5 he's got him with the slower one, Yagnik had made room outside leg stump, but was done in by the sudden fall in pace, only spooned it up high in the air, Malinga settled under it 160/6
