Afzaal Haider6072112.0088300
45.3 to SK Raina, Raina charged down the track and wanted to heave it to wide long-on but edged it to over extra cover. Good catch by Irfan running back. 325/4

14.3 to V Sehwag, Relief for Hong Kong. Sehwag is gone. Najeeb strikes. Sehwag rushes down the track and tries to heave it to wide long-on region but edges a dolly to backward point.. 127/1
18.3 to G Gambhir, that's all over for Gambhir, he's danced down the ground but the bowler fired that into the pads, lofted that high towards square leg but that doesn't have the timing, Lamsan comes around and picks off a clean take, that was a soft dismissal and a big boost for Hong Kong. 136/2

Praveen Kumar502104.20201050
RP Singh401914.75153000
1.3 to Skhawat Ali, Dead plumb. It curves in to the middle stump line and the batsman can't get his bat around the front pad in time.. 4/1
Manpreet Gony511102.20241010
Piyush Chawla1022342.30504000
12.3 to Tabarak Dar, stumped by a lovely leg break. He ran down the track, the ball dipped in front of him on the middle stump line and turned past the outside edge. Chawla was guilty in his earlier days of bowling too many googlies and not concentrating enough on the conventional one but he is making amends these days. A session with Warne recently has helped.. 49/2
16.2 to KH Butt, stumped by a googly this time. He charged down the track, had a big heave, missed but Dhoni didn't. 54/3
22.1 to CK Kruger, another stumping. This time by a big spinning leg break. It drifted in towards leg stump before turning sharply past the lunging batsman. Dhoni does the final rites.. 67/5
30.4 to Munir Dar, Wicket no 7. He top edges a slog sweep to mid-on. Another wicket for Chawla who has bowled quite a few legbreaks in this game and has got them to turn. The right arm used to go too high and in an angle, almost touching the right ear and he used to bowl lots of googlies but was unable to get the leg break to turn much. Now he has corrected his right-arm position, at times he even gets them rounder to impart more turn.. 99/7
Yusuf Pathan1003713.70467010
17.3 to JJ Atkinson, soft dismissal. He couldn't keep a straight drive down. The ball dipped on him and he didn't quite lean forward into the shot.. 54/4
Virender Sehwag2.50521.76151000
36.4 to Afzaal Haider, does it on his own with a yorker. Really full on the middle stump and he played all around it. 118/9
36.5 to Nadeem Ahmed, Caught by Dhoni. It held its line after landing around the off stump line, he got a thin nick to defensive poke. Game over.. 118/10
