Fall of wickets: 1-71 (Imran Farhat, 16.3 ov), 2-144 (Shoaib Malik, 28.6 ov), 3-146 (Salman Butt, 29.5 ov), 4-159 (Umar Amin, 32.4 ov), 5-196 (Umar Akmal, 37.3 ov), 6-219 (Shahid Afridi, 43.4 ov), 7-227 (Abdul Razzaq, 45.1 ov), 8-247 (Mohammad Amir, 47.2 ov), 9-265 (Kamran Akmal, 48.3 ov), 10-267 (Saeed Ajmal, 49.3 ov)
Praveen Kumar1015335.30395221
43.4 to Shahid Afridi, plumb lbw, India have hung in superbly here! A frustrated Afrdi walks right across the stumps, and is beaten by the slower one, hit dead in front. 219/6
45.1 to Abdul Razzaq, and he gets a wicket first ball! Razzaq looks for trademark clear-the-front-leg-and-hit-straight shot, PK bowls full, gets a slight shape away, and hence a thick edge through to Dhoni. PK has not smiled that much in a long time. 227/7
48.3 to Kamran Akmal, low full toss this time, Akmal is looking midwicket again, but ends up slicing it towards mid-on, and Raina runs from straightish extra cover to claim it. 265/9
Ashish Nehra905806.44267100
Zaheer Khan9.304124.31323000
28.6 to Shoaib Malik, Zaheer gets the breakthrough! Superb length, can't drive, can't pull, Malik is stuck on the crease, and ends up defending outside the line of the ball and is bowled. Get a feeling that the ball didn't go with the angle as Malik expected it to. 144/2
49.3 to Saeed Ajmal, Pakistan are bowled out! Hit straight down mid-off's throat. 267/10
Harbhajan Singh804725.87213100
16.3 to Imran Farhat, lovely catch, lovely bowling, just 80ks, gets grip from the surface after pitching just outside off, Farhat jabs at it, gets an edge, and Sehwag takes a lovely one-handed catch to his right at slip. 71/1
32.4 to Umar Amin, Kohli has plucked a beauty! Well bowled again, slower through the air, 81.7ks, extra bounce there as Amin cuts, and it is travelling to the left of Kolhi who dives and comes up with a one-handed catch. Top work Kohli. 159/4
Virender Sehwag301906.3352000
Ravindra Jadeja1004314.30240020
37.3 to Umar Akmal, Umar Akmal gone! One cute shot too many, premeditates the paddle sweep, is not to the pitch of it, the bounce takes the edge, into the helmet grille, and then lobs to Dhoni who rolls over to complete the catch. 196/5

Shoaib Akhtar1005705.70374321
Mohammad Amir9.505605.69335130
Abdul Razzaq501813.60171000
10.2 to V Sehwag, Sehwag is gone! And Razzaq, not for the first time, provides the breakthrough. Good delivery too, just back of a length, just outside off, holding its line ever so slightly, and taking his edge. 47/1
Saeed Ajmal1005635.60252100
17.4 to V Kohli, played on! Kohli looks to cut, but it is too full, and he duly gets a bottom edge. Looks at the pitch , suggesting perhaps that it stayed low, but it wasn't the correct shot. He misread the length and paid the price. 82/2
35.4 to G Gambhir, bowled him! Very timely wicket! And the only man who looked capable of doing that gets him. Ajmal. Again he looks for that back-cut, slightly too full for it, and it is an offbreak at 95ks, the middle stump is gone. 180/3
45.1 to RA Jadeja, bowled him! Jadeja gone! topspinner from round the stumps! Jadeja has no clue about this innings. That's what India-Pakistan does to you. Chips down the track and is comprehensively beaten by this delivery that follows him and hits the top of middle. 219/6
Shahid Afridi1004114.10251010
41.2 to RG Sharma, Sharma goes! Plays for the legspinner, pressing forward to defend, and this one goes straight through and hits him in front of off and middle. So plumb that even Billy Bowden (usually a not-outer) immediately raised the finger! Afridi gets into his Becker-like celebration. 208/4
Shoaib Malik502815.60121110
42.2 to MS Dhoni, would you believe it? what a move to bring Malik on. Full toss down the leg side, going for a wide, Dhoni tries the fine sweep, it hits the angular part of the back of the bat, and goes onto the stumps. Oh what intuition, what dismissal, Dhoni can't believe it. Game. Is. On. 210/5
