Ravindra Jadeja914124.55283000
31.1 to RT Ponting, trapped in front! Jadeja fires it full and quick on middle, Ponting tries to clip it across the line but the ball hits the base of the pads (close to the boot) right in front of the stumps. 128/2
46.3 to MC Henriques, fires this one towards legstump, Henriques moves away from leg yet again, gets a bottom edge as he looks to slam that through the off, the ball bounces once before hitting legstump. 200/5
Harbhajan Singh1003713.70290020
41.5 to AC Voges, Harbhajan Singh gets a wicket, Voges sashays down the track and slams the ball with the spin towards deep midwicket, Praveen hangs on to a good catch. 172/4
Yuvraj Singh803013.75231000
16.2 to SR Watson, sharp work by Dhoni! Yuvraj tosses it up outside off and draws Watson forward, he's beaten on the drive, the ball holds its line and Dhoni whips off the bails before the batsman can draw his backfoot back at the crease, the third umpire takes a look, Dhoni knew he was gone the instant he broke the stumps. 72/1
Suresh Raina402315.7591100
32.4 to CL White, it appears as if White's got a rough decision there. Raina bowls it flat again and White leaves a small gap between bat and pad, it almost sneaks right through before reaching Dhoni who juggles and appeals for the catch, umpire Saheba gives him out, replays confirm the ball clipping the pad but no real evidence of bat involved, White was quite surprised at the decision. 129/3

Mitchell Johnson9.224314.60346010
8.5 to V Sehwag, timber! The middle stump is flattened, Johnson lands it in a good length on middle and off, Sehwag is trapped at the crease, he tries to work it across the line but leaves a big gap between bat and pad, the ball sneaks right through and takes out the middle stump which lands a couple of yards back. 37/1

Moises Henriques805116.37245121
43.6 to Yuvraj Singh, lbw! Henriques came round the wicket and angled a good length ball into the left-hander, Yuvraj stayed in his crease, missed it and got hit on the back pad, was that going down leg? Umpire Saheba didn't think so. Yuvraj's played a terrific hand here, he came in when India were struggling and has lifted the chase. 201/4
Nathan Hauritz1004814.80304010
15.2 to G Gambhir, What a ball! Gambhir was just flummoxed, Hauritz lands it on a good length on middle, the ball grips, turns and beats the gap between pad and bat and clips the off stump, Gambhir looked quite lost at the crease and barely attempted to clip it across the line. 53/3
