Fall of wickets: 1-48 (Virender Sehwag, 5.5 ov), 2-116 (Gautam Gambhir, 18.5 ov), 3-141 (Virat Kohli, 25.2 ov), 4-141 (Yuvraj Singh, 25.3 ov), 5-187 (Sachin Tendulkar, 36.6 ov), 6-205 (MS Dhoni, 41.4 ov), 7-236 (Harbhajan Singh, 46.4 ov), 8-256 (Zaheer Khan, 49.2 ov), 9-258 (Ashish Nehra, 49.5 ov)
5.5 to V Sehwag, Taufel has given Sehwag out and he's asked for a review against the lbw decision immediately. He didn't even check with Tendulkar. Brilliant decision from Taufel. That ball pitched just in line with leg stump, short of a length, and skidded on to Sehwag, beating the batsman's attempted flick off the back foot. That ball didn't bounce as much as Sehwag thought it would. He was on his toes playing the shot. The only doubt was whether it pitched in line, it did. Pakistan are ecstatic.. 48/1
25.2 to V Kohli, Pakistan have taken a catch! Wahab strikes again! Caught at backward point. It landed on a length around off and angled away, Virat played a strange shot as if he was surprised by how it seamed away - Wahab hardly gets the ball to bend in - and had a weak waft at it. He just stabbed at it. Edge and pouched!. 141/3
25.3 to Yuvraj Singh, Crashing full swinging delivery! Sensational moment! Wahab, who was kept in this game instead of Shoaib, has done the job. What a little big moment. Pakistan huddle is on. It was full, it was pacy and it swung in beautifully past the hurried stab and crashed into the stumps. Clatter! It didn't land at all. He just took the pitch out of the equation. 141/4
41.4 to MS Dhoni, well, that's one way to take the faulty catching out of the equation! Dhoni is rapped on the pad as he shuffles to off, huge appeal and Taufel has given him out! Dhoni wants a review though ... but it's not going to help, three reds as it pitches and hits him in line, definitely hitting the stumps and that's gone. India's hopes of making a defendable total are beginning to evaporate here. 205/6
49.2 to Z Khan, gone! Caught behind, it was only a matter of time. Another enormous heave, this time he does lay bat on ball but it's a thin edge and safely pouched by Kamran. Five wickets for Wahab Riaz in a World Cup semi-final!. 256/8
36.6 to SR Tendulkar, finally, they've held one! Sachin falls. And guess who's there to take the catch? Afridi drops to his left to hold onto a stinging drive at short extra cover. 'If you want the job done right, then do it yourself,' he's thinking. Possibly. Relief flows visibly over the Pakistanis as they gather at the fall of the wicket. Plenty of smiles out there now. 187/5
46.4 to Harbhajan Singh, doosra, missed and stumped! Harbhajan jumped down the wicket and aimed for the straight boundary, but ran straight past the ball and is easily stumped by several metres. Ajmal the clear winner in the battle between the two offspinners. 236/7
18.5 to G Gambhir, Lovely stuff from Hafeez! Beaten in flight and stumped! Gambhir went down the track but couldn't reach the pitch of the ball. Panic. He then tried to stab the ball away but is now beaten by the turn. More panic. The ball has gone past him and he looks back, trying to get back but no luck. Kamran whips off the bails. India two down.. 116/2

TOTAL49.5 Ov (RR: 4.63, 239 Mins)231
Fall of wickets: 1-44 (Kamran Akmal, 8.6 ov), 2-70 (Mohammad Hafeez, 15.3 ov), 3-103 (Asad Shafiq, 23.5 ov), 4-106 (Younis Khan, 25.4 ov), 5-142 (Umar Akmal, 33.1 ov), 6-150 (Abdul Razzaq, 36.2 ov), 7-184 (Shahid Afridi, 41.5 ov), 8-199 (Wahab Riaz, 44.5 ov), 9-208 (Umar Gul, 46.1 ov), 10-231 (Misbah-ul-Haq, 49.5 ov)
8.6 to Kamran Akmal, Done in by the slower one. And also done by his own favourite square drive. It was full and outside off stump, Kamran couldn't resist the temptation and reached out for his square drive. But he ended up slicing it straight to point.. 44/1
49.5 to Misbah-ul-Haq, there's the game! Misbah swings, the ball goes miles up in the air and lands safely in Kohli's hands at long-on. 231/10
44.5 to Wahab Riaz, there's another one! Full and straight, Riaz swings mightily across the line but all he can do is send the ball straight up in the air, an easy catch for Tendulkar at cover. India are just two wickets away from a World Cup final. Pakistan are still alive, but only just. The pressure really told on Riaz there, all those dot balls made him feel as though he absolutely had to hit the boundary. 199/8
46.1 to Umar Gul, gone! Full, swinging, and Gul is struck flush on the foot as he swipes across the line. He asks for a review but to no avail, that's stone dead. Gul's unhappy day comes to an end. India are just one wicket away from a dream final. 208/9
15.3 to Mohammad Hafeez, What was Hafeez thinking? Again, yet again, a lovely 30 -40 and he has combusted. He went for a paddle sweep, yeah a paddle sweep, to a full delivery outside off stump and edged it to Dhoni. Oh dear. Pressure? or over confidence?. 70/2
36.2 to Abdul Razzaq, gone! Bowled! Munaf sends down a slower ball, another legcutter, and Razzaq plays down completely the wrong line to lose his off stump. India surge ahead with that wicket, they've got control now.. 150/6
33.1 to Umar Akmal, bowled 'im! Bhajji strikes straight away, it wasn't the doosra - more of an arm ball - but Umar played it horribly, neither forward nor back and swishing hopefully through the line of the ball. It nipped past the bat and clattered into the off stump. 142/5
41.5 to Shahid Afridi, gone! Harbhajan sends down a high full toss, Afridi attempts to smash it baseball-style down the ground but the ball takes the top edge and swirls up for cover to take an easy catch. The captain departs, he had to go for his shots but couldn't execute that one too well. This is India's game now. 184/7
23.5 to Asad Shafiq, whoops! Shafiq's gone. Too straight and a touch too full to cut, Shafiq went back and tried to, he missed and the ball skidded straight past him and hit middle stump, the Indians get into a huddle. He was cramped for room and short of time to play that shot. 103/3
25.4 to Younis Khan, caught at cover! A slow ball on a good length outside off, inviting Younis forward and into the drive. He takes the bait and spoons the ball towards Raina who leaps and takes the catch at head height. India are back in this .... 106/4
