Paidikalva Vijaykumar301806.0093000
RP Singh4041310.2588010
1.6 to B Chipli, this comes back in and cramps him up for room as he tries to glide this behind square on the offside, he only manages a thick inside edge which pegs back his legstump. 13/1
13.2 to V Kohli, Kohli takes a few paces down to loft that over the infield, RP digs it in short, Kohli fails to get the desired elevation and hands an easy catch for Bangar at deep extra cover. 104/4
18.3 to MV Boucher, RP gets his man this time as Boucher makes room for a slog but fails to make contact with a straighter delivery, the ball crashes on to the middle and offstumps. 135/6
Scott Styris402917.2580210
19.6 to R Dravid, comes round the wicket, Dravid scoops this over extra cover and Yadav at the deep just hangs onto it inches before the rope. 156/8
Shahid Afridi402315.7572000
14.2 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Misbah goes! Afridi bowls the quicker one, pitches on middle and leg and comes in with the angle, Misbah is beaten for pace and ball clips him high on the pad, Doctrove is convinced, replays showed the ball missing the legstump, he might feel slightly aggrieved with that. 111/5
Pragyan Ojha402827.0051100
10.6 to W Jaffer, Ojha changes his line of attack by bowling over the wicket, the track works as Jaffer gets on his knee and tries to slog across the line, he gets a thick leading edge and Gibbs takes the skier at extra cover. 85/2
12.5 to JH Kallis, the art of deception! Kallis takes a few tentative paces forward but misreads the length of the ball, it is short and comes on straight and takes out the middle stump, the joy on Ojha's face says it all. 102/3

Dale Steyn402005.00143010
Zaheer Khan402426.00103000
3.5 to AC Gilchrist, just inches off the rope! Gilchrist latches onto a short ball and pulls to deep square leg, Jaffer catches it barely inches off the rope and the momentum takes him one step back, he looks back and his foot is just before the rope and claims the catch, Gilchrist trusts Jaffer and walks. 22/1
18.1 to SB Styris, and another! Zaheer lands a slower ball outside the legstump, Styris attempts an across the line swipe but the ball raps in plumb in front of middle, umpire Suresh Shastri raises the finger and Zaheer is the highest wicket taker in the tournament. 132/6
Praveen Kumar402335.75122100
5.1 to HH Gibbs, and the bowling change works! Praveen pitches it short of a length outside off, Gibbs stays at the crease to flat bat it but the ball stops on him, he gets a thick top edge and Kumble at mid-off takes the sitter. 31/2
17.1 to Shahid Afridi, That was a stunner! Praveen delivers a low full toss from round the wicket, Afridi stays at the crease and clubs that high over the on side, Steyn has quite a bit of ground to cover running forward from long-on but times his dive perfectly and pulls it off inches off the turf. 128/4
17.6 to VVS Laxman, another wickets adds to the drama! Pitches just a fraction outside leg and lands on a full length, Laxman tries to work it to the on side but is too late on the stroke, Praveen appeals as soon as the ball hits the pads and Doctrove raises the finger. 132/5
Anil Kumble4047011.7523310
Jacques Kallis403518.7564100
16.5 to RG Sharma, Kallis gets his man this time! He overpitched on the pads and invites the loft, he fails to clear long-on this time and Jaffer takes it easily, the crowd applaud another fine innings by Rohit. 127/3
