Ashok Dinda301816.0091001
4.3 to VVS Laxman, The pitch takes out VVS. It was a short delivery and as any batsman would do, VVS went for the pull but it stopped on him, VVS couldn't get out of the shot and just managed to flat bat it a dolly to mid-off.. 22/2
Ishant Sharma31913.00130030
3.2 to Y Venugopal Rao, caught at gully. The previous one stopped on the batsman, this one kicked up a touch even as it came in from outside off to cramp up Venu and he ended up guiding it straight to the fielder.. 21/1
Ajit Agarkar201929.5061200
17.4 to A Symonds, Symonds falls after a very fine 32. It was a length delivery well outside off and Symonds wanted to carve it over the off side but it stopped on him and all he could do was present a simple catch to mid-off. 104/7
17.6 to WPUJC Vaas, Vaas is unable to counter the pitch. Again, the ball stopped on the batsman and Vaas tried to check his on drive. Too late. The ball stopped and jumped and went off the leading edge to a delighted Ganguly at covers.. 105/8
Murali Kartik3.401734.63143000
8.1 to AC Gilchrist, holed out to long leg. It was a short delivery and Gilchrist swiveled to pull it but ended up top-edging it to the fielder. Chargers are running out of battery.. 47/3
8.4 to RG Sharma, Rohit is gone. Flighted delivery, full and on the middle and leg, it dipped rapidly before Rohit could get forward to defend and ran off the inside-edge onto the pad and popped up to the unmanned short leg position and Saha, the 'keeper, rushes across to take a lunging catch. 47/4
18.3 to SB Bangar, After a lovely classy shot, he falls to a swipe across the line. He tried to slog a turning delivery over midwicket. Instead, it lobbed up to covers.. 110/9
Mohammad Hafeez40812.00170001
11.4 to SB Styris, Change of pace and length does the trick. The crowd roar their delight. It was quicker, it was full and Styris yorked himself, trying to tap it to the on side. Cleaned up.. 58/5
David Hussey3035111.6671410
14.3 to AS Yadav, caught at long-off. Full and outside off, Arjun went for a lofted drive, this time from the confines of the crease, and holes out at the deep.. 71/6

Chaminda Vaas30923.00121000
2.1 to RT Ponting, trapped lbw. Ponting is unhappy. The hawk eye says it would gone just over. Not too much. It landed on middle and leg line and straightened. Ponting was on the lunge and was beaten by the straightening. I think he thought it had pitched outside leg, but it hadn't.. 16/2
4.2 to WP Saha, Three down and the game hangs in a balance. Vaas takes out the pace off the ball, by rolling his fingers around the seam and Saha, who was looking good, tried to check his off drive. Too late Sir. Caught at mid-off.. 21/3
RP Singh301515.00102000
1.2 to BB McCullum, McCullum falls to the vagaries of the wicket. He was trying to clip the length delivery around middle and leg line to the leg side but it stopped on him and jumped to get the leading edge and lobbed to point. 6/1

Pragyan Ojha401824.50130120
12.6 to SC Ganguly, The left-arm spinner takes out Ganguly. It doesn't happen often. It was a loopy flighted delivery on the stumps, Ganguly went for a almighty heave across the line and missed it completely. 68/4
16.3 to Mohammad Hafeez, The reverse sweep goes awry. He went for a fierce reverse slap but top edged it over covers and Symonds took it running back. Hafeez was playing an counter-attacking game and thought he could get away with the reverse sweep but .... 88/5
