Albie Morkel302418.0084001
0.3 to NV Ojha, timber, bowled at around 137 kmph, bowled on a length on middle and off, moved away a touch, Ojha had made room, too much in hindsight and failed to make contact as it zipped through to crash into offstump.. 1/1
Sudeep Tyagi201206.0051000
Lakshmipathy Balaji301314.3391000
14.1 to RA Jadeja, slower one bowled full outside off, landed full, he picked it well, made room to slice it to Raina at point, was dying on him but he dived forward to cup that inches from the ground, well done. 92/4
Jacob Oram10808.0040100
Muthiah Muralidaran402225.50133000
8.5 to SA Asnodkar, swung across the line and was trapped in front, came round the wicket, was the overspinner, landed fullish on middle and leg, tried to sweep it square, was rapped on the pads and Dharmasena had no doubt. 54/2
12.2 to GC Smith, stumped, didn't even appeal, Smith walked, spun away just as he tried to connect a slog-sweep, missed, and Dhoni dislodged the bails pretty quickly, Smith was outside the crease well after the stumps were disturbed. 75/3
Shadab Jakati403528.75101310
15.5 to YK Pathan, sucked him in, flighted it on the off, landed full, went for the slog-sweep well in front of square, the intended area was long-on and he got the direction right but way more elevation than he would have wanted, Oram judged it well and for a moment it seemed he would go over the boundary but retained his balance to take it inches inside the ropes. 100/5
17.2 to AS Raut, stumped, drew him out of the crease with the flight, spun away as he tried to smack that inside-out over cover, missed and Dhoni had no difficulty clipping the bails, the batsman didn't even bother making it back. 111/7

Yusuf Pathan402807.0093010
Amit Singh302518.33103100
5.6 to SK Raina, massive blow, short of a good length outside off, went for a mighty pull, was a little early into the shot, got the top-edge and Carseldine pouched it easily at point. 37/2
Siddharth Trivedi302317.6672110
2.6 to M Vijay, that looked out, full on middle, Vijay moved across to flick it towards square leg, hit the pads before the bat and was plumb. 19/1
Shane Harwood2022011.0063110
Shane Warne402716.75142130
16.5 to ML Hayden, stumped down the leg side, saw him come down and fired it outside leg, it spun down further as Hayden missed, Ojha took it well diving to his right and then held his balance to take down the stumps, Hayden was miles out. 126/3
