49.3 to Yuvraj Singh, Yuvraj comes down the track and takes the ball on the full, walloping it in the air towards long off, David Obuya running in from that position and diving forward full length to take a splendid catch. 267/4
Peter Ongondo1013813.80362000
18.3 to V Sehwag, fullish and on the off, Sehwag tries to play the pick up shot that sails over midwicket, he closes the face of the bat too early and the leading edge goes high up in the air, Odumbe takes a well judged catch running back at covers. 74/1
Aasif Karim402506.2593010
Steve Tikolo1006016.00281320

Zaheer Khan9.221431.50481030
8.2 to RD Shah, full and straight, almost yorker length, Shah plays across the line and misses, trapped in front of the stumps, this time Zaheer Khan gets the decision!. 20/1
26.4 to HS Modi, outside the off, and Modi tries to play the dab down to third man and gets a thin edge that Dravid snaps up easily behind the stumps. 92/6
46.2 to MA Suji, and Zaheer cleans up the tail finally, a full and fast yorker that is just too good for the tailender, the sticks knocked back and sealing India's presence in the final. 179/10
Javagal Srinath711111.57340010
13.1 to KO Otieno, classic seamer's dismissal, the ball pitching on off stump and moving away slightly, Otieno lunges at it and gets the outside edge, the ball safely pouched by Dravid. 30/3
Ashish Nehra511122.20220020
10.1 to PJ Ongondo, short ball again, Nehra seeing Ongondo's willingness to go for the pull, and the batsman obliges, trying to pull it away and getting the edge that lands safely in Zaheer's hands at mid on. 21/2
14.3 to TM Odoyo, short ball and Odoyo flashes into the pull, gets a top edge that because of the sheer power goes high into the air, only for Sehwag at fine leg to take a well-judged catch. 36/4
Harbhajan Singh1013203.20412000
Yuvraj Singh604317.16183300
18.4 to MO Odumbe, Odumbe goes again, but this time he does not connect nearly as well, the ball spooning high in the air and dipping just as it approaches Zaheer Khan, who catches it quite easily in the end. 63/5
Virender Sehwag311605.33110110
Sachin Tendulkar602824.66232030
43.4 to SO Tikolo, Tendulkar gives it air again, but this one is the quicker one, and Tikolo plays all over it, chopping it onto his stumps to give Tendulkar his first wicket in this World Cup. 161/8
45.4 to CO Obuya, perhaps that's why! Tendulkar sends down an inswinging full delivery, no spin there, and Obuya is caught on the walk, neither forward nor back, and is adjudged leg before wicket. 179/9
