Morne Morkel402827.0092001
3.3 to G Gambhir, bowled him, off the inside edge! Middle stump is flat on the ground. Morkel delivered at 146kph, the length was a bit full to be staying in the crease to, Gambhir tried to make room and cut but the ball thudded on to his bat and then on to the stumps. 23/1
9.6 to Yuvraj Singh, bowled him! Morkel bowled a full ball and it was a little slower too. Yuvraj tried to flick and missed, he lost his off stump. 68/4
Jacques Kallis302418.0043000
4.5 to V Kohli, caught behind! Kohli moved across his stumps to a short of a length ball that climbed on him and he ended up gloving the glance, AB moved quickly to his left and caught it. India in trouble now. Kohli was cramped for room by how much that ball rose. 30/2
Robin Peterson402526.25131200
5.3 to V Sehwag, bowled him! Sehwag's six and out! He came down the pitch once again and swung in hope across the line. The ball was much slower. Sehwag was beaten by flight and the pace and Peterson hit off stump. 36/3
15.6 to RG Sharma, lbw! Rohit tries to sweep one that is much too full on off stump, he misses and is absolutely plumb, he goes after failing to get out of third gear, 25 off 27 balls isn't good enough. 112/5

Zaheer Khan402235.50141100
0.2 to HM Amla, oh gone second ball! What a start for Zaheer. A length ball just outside off and Amla nicks off to first slip who takes a good catch down low to his left, claiming it with two hands, a smart grab. Did just enough to shape away from Amla who looked to punch a length ball angled across off stump, it was a healthy edge and well caught. 0/1
17.2 to F Behardien, slower ball, plays with hard hands down the ground, chipped up and it carries to long on running in off the rope to claim a comfortable catch. 127/6
17.3 to RJ Peterson, oh lovely, two in two as Peterson is yorked. Perfect inswinging yorker onto the base of off stump as Peterson backed away and tried to play into the off side, done by a beauty. 127/7
Irfan Pathan302618.6684000
3.3 to JH Kallis, . 16/2
Yuvraj Singh402325.75102000
6.1 to AB de Villiers, and it worked immediately as de Villiers chops on. Yuvraj strikes again! It was very slow around middle and off, de Villiers waited in the crease for it but ended up blocking it onto the base of off stump, poor way to go but India take another. 46/3
12.4 to F du Plessis, goes again but this is too straight and caught at long off the timing was similar to the previous ball but this was not placed well and straight to the fielder. Went down the wicket again to find the rope but didn't get it into the gap, another strike for Yuvraj. 95/4
Rohit Sharma1013013.0000100
Ravichandran Ashwin402716.7560101
18.5 to J Botha, goes again but this time find long off who goes to his left to take a two-handed catch at head height, wasn't quite to the pitch and reached out for it, slapping it almost wide enough of long off but not far enough. 138/8
Lakshmipathy Balaji3.503739.6594200
14.6 to JP Duminy, length ball and swept to deep square leg Picked out the fielder on the on side boundary, got down and tried to sweep it around the corner, got it flat and hard but not the elevation and the fielder came in and took a straightforward catch. 107/5
19.2 to JA Morkel, another slower ball, this time fuller outside off and he drags it on so India back on top. Backed away and tried to go off side, got a thin edge onto the middle stump, was reaching out for it and it came off a thin bottom edge. 145/9
19.5 to M Morkel, got him!! Full onto the off stump and Morkel swings and misses, is cleaned up and India win it by a run! What an ending. After a terrible long hop, Balaji has responded really well there with a fast, straight yorker that was too good for Morkel. 151/10
