2.4 to AC Gilchrist, short ball on off and Gilchrist goes for the hook, not quite getting over the ball as it came on to him faster than antichipated and he scoops up to Yuvraj at mid-on who takes the catch cat-cool. 16/1
4.2 to RT Ponting, Ponting goes! The batsman looked to pull a short one round from outside off, the ball not quite getting up, and the inside edge crashes hard on to the sticks. 19/2
803214.00303010
5.5 to MJ Clarke, fabulous delivery from Ishant, taking the inside edge as Clarke goes to forward defend but is beaten by the inswing, the ball coming back in off the seam from outside off and the pace, and Dhoni takes the catch. 24/3
706319.001711010
48.6 to B Lee, Rohit takes the catch now as Lee drives very hard and high over to long-off, opening his shoulders but not quite getting the right trajectory. 231/8
1003823.80322020
23.1 to A Symonds, outside off, some room, and Symonds drives up straight and hard aerially out to Kumar in the deep on the on-side, deep midwicket in fact. 124/4
27.3 to ML Hayden, Hayden gets down early to play the sweep to a full ball, and sends it just behind square for a good catch by Chawla who keeps his head and hangs on well. 135/5
1003303.30330020
401814.50101000
38.5 to JR Hopes, offers some width outside off, Hopes shapes to cut to point, and nicks a fine edge on the top of the blade, Dhoni begins to roar before he's even taken the ball. 173/6

10.6 to RV Uthappa, oh hello, super catch, the ball firmly pulled off the legs to deep square, Hussey runs over, dives under and takes it low, immediately gets up and celebrates, arm up and a big yell of "Yes!". 50/1
