BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Albie Morkel604918.16167031
23.3 to MS Dhoni, cleaned 'em up! Full in the blockhole, Dhoni shapes up to twirl one through the leg side but the ball shoots under the bat and disturbs the furniture and Albie celebrates his strike. 134/3
Morne Morkel1014824.80345111
49.1 to Mohammad Yousuf, edged and gone! Yousuf sees the half-volley, gets onto bended knee and square-drives the legcutter but the result is a simple outside edge into Boucher's gloves. 331/6
49.5 to Mohammad Rafique, and he goes, standing and slashing one up into the air, and thats an excellent catch from de Villiers, who covers a huge amount of distance running back from cover, keeping his eyes on the ball as it dies against the starry night, and pouching it in front of him! Morne applauds his fielder, and rightfully so. 333/7
Thomas Odoyo806017.50224230
4.5 to ST Jayasuriya, and thats a tame way to get out, as he just drives a good length delivery straight into the hands of Dippneaar mid-off, not timed well and he picked the man who didnt have to move an inch. 37/1
Elton Chigumbura1008428.40249311
11.3 to V Sehwag, and what's he done next ball? He loosely, and I'm talking somewhat one-handedly, gets over-confident and lofts a well-disguised slower ball straight into the hands of long-on, who doesnt have to move much from his position well inside the ropes. 77/2
46.1 to SC Ganguly, and he perishes, standing in his crease and swinging a full toss below the waist across the line and it spirals up in the air for Ongondo to hold onto a good catch running in from deep square leg, so there's no hundred for Ganguly, but he hung around and dug in for a fighting 88. 298/5

Mohammad Asif9.508228.332811111
2.2 to AB de Villiers, edged and what a superb take from Dhoni, diving full length to his right and holding it an inch off the ground to send de Villiers back to the hut, and again Asif has his man, pitching one on middle stump and deviating it off the seam to flummox the batsman, classical pace bowler's dismissal. 20/1
49.5 to M Morkel, sends his off stump for a walk as Morne eyes up midwicket and swings across the line, and the Asians have won this game by 31 runs and have the series in the bag. 306/10
Zaheer Khan2.40903.37100000
Mahela Jayawardene2.201908.1451030
Dilhara Fernando1003643.60394010
12.4 to V Sibanda, the set-up works, as Sibanda gets tangled up pulling one thats not quite there for that shot, he's very late on the shot and the ball takes the top-edge and balloons up high behind the stumps for Dhoni to keep an eye on it and pouch a simple take. 80/2
12.6 to JM Kemp, tiiiiiiiiiimber! Kemp's woeful run at the international level continues, as like against Asif at Bangalore he junges forward and drives lustily, only to completely misread the line and his off stump is pegged back. 80/3
36.2 to MV Boucher, all over for him! Fernando doesnt waste time in this spell, following up the lovely yorker with a length delivery on middle and leg, which Boucher gets under and hits high in the air and down Asif's throat at long-on. 217/5
44.1 to J Botha, and he cleans up Botha first ball as he heaves across the line and loses his off stump. 263/9
Mohammad Rafique1006226.20317110
41.5 to E Chigumbura, what a catch! Chigumbura gets down on one knee and slams this high and down to long-on, the ball is in the air for some time and comes down to where Harbhajan lines it up perfectly on the ropes, jumps and takes it inches inside the boundary, immense effort and doesnt Harbhajan love it?. 247/7
43.5 to JA Morkel, good catch from Ganguly! Morkel comes out, Rafique fires it in flat on leg stump, and the aerial flick off the pads is held inches off the ground by a diving Ganguly at mid-on. 263/8
Yuvraj Singh704316.14153000
26.6 to HH Dippenaar, gone! He gets into position to pull a fractionally short ball on leg stump, hitting with the wind and with little power and Harbhajan, running around from deep midwicket, judges it to perfection. 159/4
Sourav Ganguly301404.6671000
Virender Sehwag503717.4081200
40.2 to SM Pollock, and he goes, miscuing an attempted lofted drive for six up in the air for Asif to hold another easy take down at long-on and Sehwag gets his man!. 234/6
