2.2 to Mohammad Hafeez, Nitini slides down the legside, he shuffles across and flicks it uppishly down to fine leg, he times it a little too well and places it straight to Gony who takes it comfortably. 14/1
4.6 to SC Ganguly, timber! Ntini switches to over the wicket for Ganguly and fires it on a good length on middle stump line, Ganguly exposes all his stumps to cream it over the infield but plays far too early, the middle stump is flattened and the stump microphone is a mess. 28/2
16.1 to DB Das, Timely bowling change for Chennai! Delivers from wide of the crease and fires a low full toss, Das makes room to scoop it over mid-off but is beaten for pace, the ball takes out the legstump and sends it back by a few yards. 114/3
16.2 to DJ Hussey, timber and that;s two in two! Ntini gets it to angle in to the right hander, that's his stock delivery, Hussey is a little lazy to move across and cover the line and the ball skids through and hits the top of offstump, the stump goes for a tumble. 114/4

Lakshmipathy Balaji403619.0044020
17.2 to Salman Butt, he attempts a premeditated paddle scoop and exposes all three stumps, he misses the stroke and meets the ball flush on the pads in front of middle, easy decision for Jayaprakash. 122/5
