    14 Almost like the Vijay dismissal. It was a length delivery that straightened around the off stump, Shikhar edged the drive to his pad and the ball bounded off straight to the keeper! Hmmm 99/2
    10.2 shuffles outside leg, Harbhajan follows him with an off break, Vijay tries to dab it to the on side for a single, the ball goes off the inside edge to the pads and lobs up for the keeper to hold a simple catch. Not a great delivery but it gets Harbhajan a wicket. Soft dismissal. 79/1
    26.4 banged in short and Khadiwale mistimes the pull, trying to fetch it from outside off, and sends a simple catch to mid-on 167/4
    17.4 Badrinath is run out It was cut to deep point ... they return for the second and here is where the problem starts. Khadiwale thinks about the third run but returns to his crease. Badri kept running and both were at the same end when the bowler removed the bails 118/3
    33.5 turns in from the off stump, tries to play the late cut but the ball was on the middle stump line and edges it to the keeper who manages to take it 212/5
    40.2 given out lbw but there was an inside-edge. It turned from the middle stump line, Jadeja shaped to defend and got a thin edge to the back pad. Very thin nick and Ulhas Gandhe couldn't pick it up 231/7
    36.5 got him! Dhoni strikes! Bowled it on middle and off from round the wicket and Saha, with little intent, just chipped it gently to Yusuf Pathan at short midwicket 218/6
    43.1 walks down the track, tries to force the back-of-length delivery from outside off to the on side but gets a top edge to Suresh Kumar at mid-off 242/8
    44.4 comes down the track and the bowler cleverly cuts back on the pace, he swings all around it and the ball hits the off stump 248/10
    44 And he is gone. It rushes past the off stump line, angling away from that round the stumps and Ishant gets a faint tickle to the keeper And they still haven't taken the Powerplay. I tell you ....! 244/9

    6.5 soft dismissal there, Ishant drops it short and Ojha goes for the pull, plays too early and mistimes the shot and the ball tamely lobs to Jaggi at midwicket 31/1
    9.2 Red will be really relieved to see Jaffer go, Tyagi pitches it up outside off, almost exactly like the previous ball, Jaffer shapes to punch it past the covers but he spoons it straight to Dhawan at short cover 48/2
    22.2 bowled'im! Landed short of a good length on the off stump and held its line, Harbhajan made room to cut, it kept low and zipped under his bat onto the stumps 106/4
    10.4 Jadeja takes a dream of a catch! Jonty did you see that! Jadhav chases a short and wide delivery outside off and tries to scoop it over backward point, Jadeja leaps up, realises the ball is drifting towards his wrong side, he lifts his left hand and cups it mid-air, tumbles and hangs on, made it look so easy, awesome 49/3
    47 slower delivery and Kumar mishits it high in the air to mid-off, Jaggi was positioned to take it but Jadeja runs in from mid-on and takes it in front of Jaggi. 237/8
    34.5 gone! Ashwin's taken an excellent catch in the deep, similar delivery but Dhoni couldn't get it square enough, struck it hard but Ashwin was positioned perfectly for it at sweeper cover, ran down a couple of steps and judged that flat chance perfection 161/5
    41.1 gone! India Red have the edge now, shortish on the off and turns in and he paddles it straight into the palms of short fine leg, Khadiwale's the fielder there 192/6
    45.4 full toss and Pathan goes for the big hit and hits it down the ground high in the air to long off and Vijay takes it on his second attempt as the ball was going down. Makes it more interesting now. 226/7
    47.2 Munaf strikes for India Red, Sreesanth swings across the line and the ball brushes him and knocks the top of the stumps, getting difficult for India Blue. 237/9
