Brett Lee904224.66365041
0.5 to R Dravid, thats plumb! Dravid goes for a first-ball duck! Lee pitches full on middle and off and gets the ball to swing on, Dravid tries to play it back straight while hopping back, gets stuck in the crease and is caught dead in front of leg! The ball stayed a touch low but thats out anywhere in the world. 5/2
25.3 to SR Tendulkar, edged and gone! A Lee special, the best ball he's bowled today, pitching on a good length and sucking Tendulkar forward into the straight drive, then deviating and drawing the outside edge which Gilchrist gleefully snaps up! The bowling changes works perfectly and Tendulkar goes for 47. 92/6
Mitchell Johnson1002652.60494030
3.5 to Yuvraj Singh, edged and well taken! Johnson bowls another short delivery, it sits up and Yuvraj stands leaden-footed as he goes for an airy shot outside off stump, theres the thinnest of under-edges which Gilchrist holds very low above the ground! An especially good take because Gilchrist was moving to his left initially but then had to adjust as the ball deviated to his right, plucking it one-handed very low. India jolted by three quick strikes. 12/3
7.1 to RV Uthappa, another one bites the dust! Johnson pitches it back of a length, Uthappa gets a stride forward from his crease and plays, but misses, and the ball raps him on the pads as it angles across off stump, and even before Johnson and Gilchrist finish appealing umpire Sahiba's finger shoots up ... an iffy call, as it looked like the ball was going outside the line of impact. And the height is an issue.. 33/4
9.2 to MS Dhoni, and the captain goes! Johnson bowls it down the leg side off a short length, angling it away from the right-hander and Dhoni goes for some sort of one-handed nudge off the pads, there's touch and deviation and Gilchrist takes another good catch, this time diving full length to his left and plucking it ... are India in trouble or what?. 43/5
27.4 to IK Pathan, and thats four for Johnson! Simple dismissal, the ball pitching on a good length, moving away ever so slightly, drawing the thick outside edge off the bat and Gilchrist takes it easily. 106/8
29.1 to M Kartik, maiden five-for for Johnson, a special moment! Steams in, bangs it in on a short length and forces Kartik to hop up and steer it into Gilchrist's safe gloves! India nine down!. 107/9
Brad Hogg912813.11411200
26.6 to Harbhajan Singh, and Hogg wins that easy battle! A needless, reckless shot from Harbhajan, not even waiting to see what Hogg's got to offer, instead preferring to slog down the ground, miscuing it and giving mid-off, running back a little, a simple catch. 105/7
James Hopes301304.33143000
Nathan Bracken8.402913.34362120
39.4 to Z Khan, and thats the end of that! An enterprising stand of 41 is snapped by Bracken as Zaheer drives a full delivery and gets a thin edge into Gilchrist's gloves, his sixth catch today. 148/10

RP Singh201517.5062010
12.5 to ML Hayden, bowled him! Hayden walks down the pitch and tries to hit down the ground, the angle into him induces the inside edge and the ball crashes into the stumps, India have the breakthrough but they need several more if they are to make a fight of this. 54/1
