RP Singh403919.75116110
0.5 to AC Gilchrist, Two fours and then he is cleaned up. The middle stump has gone for a walk. A screaming yorker, on the middle stump line and Gilchrist plays all around it. RP is pumped up and Gilchrist walks back to the hutch. Frenetic start to this Twenty20 showdown.. 12/1
Sreesanth4047011.75117120
Irfan Pathan403428.5065000
14.6 to BJ Hodge, The middle stump has been pegged back and settles into Dhoni's gloves. Length delivery, no slow off cutter this time, and Hodge goes for a pull but misses it completely. Gone. Hodge's nightmarish tour ends.. 116/4
18.6 to RT Ponting, Another batsman drags it on. Full in length, on the off and middle, angling away, Ponting goes for a ambitious pull and gets a fatal inside edge.. 158/5
Harbhajan Singh401714.2590000
6.6 to ML Hayden, dragged on! The chinese cut goes awry. Full and outside off stump, Hayden tries to thrash it through cover but the bat comes outside the line and he gets a fatal inside edge. Hard luck.. 60/2

Brett Lee3.1035111.0584111
2.2 to V Sehwag, Lee gets his revenge. It landed on a length, outside off stump and shaped away, Sehwag, struck adhesively to the crease, flashed at it, bat away from the body ,and nicks it behind. Lee strikes.. 20/1

Ben Hilfenhaus402817.00143102
15.4 to G Gambhir, Gambhir falls after a very valuable knock. Banged in short, on the middle stump line, Gambhir skied a pull shot towards mid-on where it was safely held. Good innings though. He paced it pretty well.. 143/3
Stuart Clark403308.25101220
Andrew Symonds302608.6623000
Michael Clarke201417.0050110
10.3 to RV Uthappa, And Clarke strikes. Similar delivery, turning past the off stump, Uthappa tries to play a cute late cut and the ball runs off the face of the bat and into Gilchrist's gloves.. 102/2
