Ajit Agarkar302608.6654010
Ashok Dinda302418.00124110
3.5 to JR Hopes, and he's gone, attempting another big shot over midwicket but the ball gains on him from a length and skies up into the evening for Hodge to run to his right from mid-on and hold it. 28/1
Mohammad Hafeez302819.3353100
8.6 to Yuvraj Singh, gone! Smart stuff from Saha! Fires it in flat outside off stump, Yuvraj goes for the late slash but misses and loses balance, Saha fumbles the ball and it rolls forward, but Yuvraj's back leg slides outside the line and Saha picks up the ball to break the stumps, it goes upstairs and the verdict is that Yuvraj just failed to drag the foot back over the line, a marginal call and it goes against the batsman. 82/2
David Hussey302317.6682100
11.3 to SE Marsh, stumped him! Hussey moves around the stumps to the left-hander, cleverly tossing it up into the rough outside off stump, and Marsh skips down in an attempt to heave it over mid-on but misses completely for Saha to take care of the rest, so the change works well. 98/3
Umar Gul402726.7593020
leg stump goes for a walk, Sangakkara exposing all three sticks and trying one of those paddle-scoops to fine leg but Gul pitches very full and straight and hits his mark. 49/1
12.1 to DPMD Jayawardene, and he wastes no time! Begins with a short one which gains on Jayawardene, cramped going for the pull shot, getting the toe end of the bat on it and it balloons straight to Ganguly at midwicket. 102/4
18.3 to KC Sangakkara, leg stump goes for a walk, Sangakkara exposing all three sticks and trying one of those paddle-scoops to fine leg but Gul pitches very full and straight and hits his mark. 155/6

2.5 to SC Ganguly, gone! Ganguly gets back and uppercuts a pretty short ball outside off stump right down Pathan's throat at third man, positioning himself to pouch it just inside the boundary. 22/1
4.6 to DB Das, and he gets his man soon after the reprieve! Das doesn't move his feet as he attempts a slog over extra cover and the top-edge spirals up and settles in Yuvraj's palms at mid-off to spark a highly enthused reaction from Sreesanth. 29/4
Irfan Pathan401824.50161110
3.1 to Mohammad Hafeez, timber! Hafeez loses his marbles, skipping down and slogging across the line with his eyes shut, looking to heave this over midwicket but the ugly stroke fails to connect and ball makes contact to rearrange the furniture, Pathan is mobbed by his team-mates. 23/2
3.6 to BJ Hodge, nailed him! Pathan pitches full just around and about off stump, bringing the ball back in and rapping Hodge on the front foot, late on the stroke, and a throaty appeal is upheld by the umpire after a thought, and it looked, to the naked eye, to be hitting him in line with middle and off. 25/3
Vikram Singh403117.7563000
9.4 to LR Shukla, middle stump is pegged back as Shukla makes room and fails to connect. 50/5
Gagandeep Singh4043110.7562300
18.5 to DJ Hussey, but this one's taken! Another slower ball from Gagandeep sucks Hussey out of his crease, he plays a repeat of the previous slog, which goes up into the starry evening for a long time but this time Hopes settles under it mid-off and takes it, then pumping his fists and letting out an almighty roar because Punjab know how important that wicket is. 154/6
