BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Sreesanth1005035.00382230
4.1 to KED Carroll, edged and taken by a diving Karthik! Was fullish and leaving Carroll, who drove loosely while not to the pitch and the thick outside edge was snapped up beautifully by the 'keeper, diving to his right and plucking it in front of Tendulkar at first slip. 14/1
13.5 to DI Joyce, edged and gone! Joyce plays away to one outside off stump, opening the face of the bat, and the offer is snapped up well by Ganguly at second slip, moving to his left. 47/2
48.6 to DT Johnston, fullish outside off stump, Johnston backs away and ends up slicing it in the air over cover, the ball spirals up in the air, Tendulkar and Yuvraj converge, backward point calls for it and judges it excellently to give Sreesanth his third wicket. 187/9
RP Singh1023623.60464070
44.4 to NJ O'Brien, looking to flick one over the infield, he shuffles across his stumps, closes the face of the bat and gets a leading-edge way up in the air to mid-off, Sharma moves across from extra cover and holds onto it for his first catch in ODIs. 159/7
46.4 to WK McCallan, cleaned up, as McCallan walks across his stumps, clearly trying to cheekily lap it down to fine leg, but the ball wins this battle. 168/8
Ajit Agarkar1022712.70431030
16.2 to WTS Porterfield, cleaned up by the yorker! Agarkar lands it as perfect as can be, full and moving in the air and it goes right through Porterfield, excellent delivery. 56/3
Sourav Ganguly611502.50271011
Piyush Chawla1022932.90422010
24.1 to GC Wilson, bowled 'em! Chawla unveils another good googly, tossed up and spinning past Wilson, who gets half-forward and flicks across the line only to hear the rattle of timber behind him, Chawla loves it, well bowled!. 75/4
26.3 to KJ O'Brien, aggression gets the better of him, as he plants the leg out and sweeps hard in front of the pad, getting under it and slogging up into air for RP to hold a simple catch at square leg. 83/5
34.3 to AR White, egded and another good take from Karthik, as Chawla loops one up invitingly outside off stump, White goes for a booming drive away from the body, and gets an outside edge which the 'keeper snaps up on the move. 111/6
Sachin Tendulkar402416.00112010
49.6 to RK Whelan, and with the last ball of the innings, Tendulkar gets his 150th ODI wicket as Whelan comes out, is beaten, and Karthik whips off the bails. 193/10

Roger Whelan805617.00267130
0.6 to SR Tendulkar, got 'em! Whelan you beauty! The debutant follows up the freebie with a full delivery outside off stump that nips through Tendulkar as he flicks across the line, what a wicket for the young Irish bowler in his first over. 9/1
