Zaheer Khan1015515.50336120
0.6 to AC Gilchrist, well that extra delivery has worked! short of a length outside off, shapes away just a touch, Gilchrist gets ready to drive on the up but the ball gets the edge and flies to Tendulkar at first slip. 3/1
3.1 to BJ Hodge, superb stuff from Sreesanth, pitched up outside off, the late away swing induces Hodge to go for the front-foot drive, the ball gets the outside edge and Dhoni takes it low to his right. 8/2
46.5 to A Symonds, another slower one and this time he strikes. It's full on leg stump and Symonds tries to smack it over midwicket, only manages to get a leading edge that balloons up high in the air. Sreesanth gets himself under it and completes a smart catch.Sreesanth celebrates with a leer, Symonds has a few words, Dravid intervenes and all, we hope, is well with the world. Fine innings from Symonds. It could end up being a matchwinning effort.. 268/5
49.2 to JR Hopes, slower ball works this time, outside off and Hopes slashes wildly, straight to Dravid at extra cover. High Hopes crash.Local boy Sreesanth has three wickets now. His aim was to get five. He has four balls left to achieve it.. 297/6
Irfan Pathan1004724.70344030
15.3 to MJ Clarke, got 'em! Great work by Dhoni behind the stumps. That was a poor ball down leg side but Clarke can't get hold of the flick and over-balances after the stroke. Dhoni, standing up to the stumps, collects it nearly and flicks off the bails in a flash. Easy decision for the umpire that time and Pathan hugs Dhoni as if he's some long lost lover. Was it a poor ball or good judgement? What matters is he's got a wicket. Pup goes the Clarke.Drama! Suresh Shastri, the square leg umpire, lifted his finger but appears to have consulted the third umpire in the last moment. Clarke is waiting in the boundary. It looks out but there's still debating. The giant screen finally shows the verdict: OUT and Clarke is on his way. His back foot was on the line there and as everyone famously proclaims: "The line belongs to the umpire". He even takes it home when stumps are drawn.. 66/3
31.1 to ML Hayden, that was a masterstroke! Pathan fires in a yorker on leg stump, Hayden shuffles and tries to work it to the on side, the ball sneaks under the bat and takes the leg stump. oh and full marks to Dhoni for that bowling change. 160/4

Brett Lee704406.28273222
Mitchell Johnson914615.11333150
3.1 to G Gambhir, the offcutter sinks him! pitches just outside off , Johnson gets that to jag back in and catch Gambhir unawares, the ball just clips the top of the off stump and just the bails get dislodged. 11/1
Stuart Clark601422.33261000
8.5 to SR Tendulkar, Clark gets the prized wicket! pitched up outside off, Tendulkar leans into an uppish drive and the ball lobs straight to Symonds at short cover. Symonds shows sharp reflexes to take it to his right. 58/2
14.2 to RV Uthappa, Uthappa gets a big shuffle across his stumps and pays the price, he tries to work a fullish delivery off his pads to the on side but gets struck in front of the stumps, Bucknor takes his time and raises the finger. 87/4
James Hopes703314.71263111
11.4 to Yuvraj Singh, and another bowling change works! Hopes bowls it full and outside off, the ball stops on Yuvraj as he plays a half-hearted drive on the up to Hayden at short cover. 79/3
Michael Clarke913523.88322100
30.3 to Harbhajan Singh, down leg side, Clarke sets up the trap for Harbhajan by floating it down leg, Harbhajan takes a few paces forward but misses the ball completely, easy stumping for Gilchrist. 154/7
34.6 to RR Powar, through the gate! short of a length on middle, the ball starightens after pitching, Powar swivels to pull, doesnt read the length, swings and misses, the ball clips the top of leg stump. 179/8
Brad Hogg9.304034.21340310
25.1 to R Dravid, That's the sort of catch that wins matches. Mitchell Johnson, almost like a ballerina, judges a skier to perfection and produces a YouTube moment. Dravid launches into a slog sweep, it goes high towards midwicket and the crowd is already cheering the six when Johnson gets under it, watches it closely, holds on and maintains his balance brilliantly. He was inches from the ropes but kept his poise. Super catch.. 136/5
39.2 to Z Khan, flighted on leg, zaheer goes for the slog sweep, the ball gets the top edge and goes down Hodge's throat at short third-man. 190/9
47.3 to MS Dhoni, Got 'em! All over. The googly ends it all, Dhoni flashes at one outside off and the top-edge flies to short third man where Brad Hodge dived full length and completed a fine catch. 222/10
