80.1 to V Kohli, a bad decision. reverse swinging right in the block-hole and Kohli looking to work through the onside is struck on the pad, loud appeal and given by umpire Tarapore. The ball was surely sliding down the leg side.. 328/6
11.6 to W Jaffer, caught! Sets him up with the short delivery, goes for the hook and gets it down to fine leg and Johnson had to run few paces to take the catch.. 41/1
107.1 to IK Pathan, Clark strikes and the new ball does the trick, Pathan goes for the big shot and mishits it high in the air to the right of mid-off, where Siddle takes the catch. Pathan goes after a good knock.. 447/8

34.2 to Yuvraj Singh, caught! A soft and strange dismissal. Johnson digs in a short delivery at a slower pace and Yuvraj initially looking to pull, withdraws to leave the delivery but is too late as the ball has taken the outside edge and balloons up behind the wicket and Hussey at gully takes the catch.. 120/4
64.6 to RG Sharma, caught! A soft dismissal, short delivery and Rohit pulls in the air straight into the hands of Krejza in front of square leg. A good innings from Rohit Sharma comes to an end.. 266/5

69.4 to BJ Haddin, seeing Haddin's intentions Ojha pitches one short, it turns sharply and beats the outside edge of advancing Haddin. Patel, comfortably pouches the delivery and flicks the bails off in one go. Good start to the day by Board Presidents XI. 199/5
71.1 to JJ Krejza, on a good length outside the off stump, Krejza has an almighty go at it and gets an outside edge. Yuvraj, at first slip anticipates well and takes a good catch to make it a disappointing match for Krejza till now. 203/6
30.2 to RT Ponting, Chawla strikes, a peach of a delivery tossed up outside the off stump and spins in (googly), Ponting plays forward and does not read the delivery, leaves the gap between bat and pad, the middle stump is rattled.. 94/3

72.4 to B Lee, this time he does not as Lee chooses a fuller delivery on the middle stump and pays the penalty as he is plumb in front. The drive should have been played but then it is a faulty stroke selection. 204/7
78.4 to MG Johnson, googly outside the off stump, Johnson hangs his bat out to dry as the ball takes the outside edge and is snaffled up by Chopra at second slip. fourth wicket for Piyush. 214/8
80.2 to PM Siddle, googly yet again, Piyush gets his five for. Replays show that the impact was outside off so Siddle can consider himself unlucky. 218/9

12.3 to S Badrinath, short and rising delivery wide outside the off stump and Badrinath looking to upper-cut it over the slips, can only get the edge to Haddin behind the stumps, who takes the catch at a comfortable height.. 35/2
5.2 to A Chopra, gone! done in by the shuffle again as his back and across movement leads to his downfall. Chopra was done in by the lack of bounce on the delivery. He was expecting it to rise a little further than it did and when it didn't he was done in and is caught plumb in front. 7/1
56.6 to Yuvraj Singh, on a good length outside the off stump. Yuvraj, visibly tired has an ugly swipe at it and gets an outside edge back to the keeper, who pouches it. 235/3
58.3 to W Jaffer, disappointment for Jaffer as he looks to work it away on the leg side but is struck right in front of the middle stump and is horrified at his own shot selection as he has to measure the distance back to the pavilion. 240/4
