0.5 to G Gambhir, Gambhir chips down the track and bash it over the off side, he makes room and Harris makes him chase the ball by bowling it wide,the ball flies off the top half off the bat and sails into RP's palms at third man. 0/1
0.6 to DA Warner, two in two! Harris is the man of the moment, he bowls it a touch wide outside off and invites the slash, Warner obliges but chops it straight to Gibbs at backward point, Harris will be on a hat-trick the next over. 0/2
18.6 to KD Karthik, through the gate! Harris fires a yorker on the base of the off and middle stumps and Karthik exposes the woodwork as he shapes to slash it square on the off side, the bails go flying. 145/5
17.1 to AB de Villiers, the bowling change works! He pitches it slightly short of a length and AB clears his front leg and tries to pull him but the ball kicks up a bit more and catches the outside edge. 133/4
19.3 to R Bhatia, pitches it up outside off and Bhatia makes room to slice it past backward point but he ends up spooning it straight to Rao in that position. 151/6
10.4 to V Sehwag, Sehwag pays the price for getting too far across, he exposes the middle and leg stumps as he tries to paddle it away to fine leg, the ball clips his thigh right in front and the umpire doesn't take too long to decide. 85/3

1.2 to HH Gibbs, timber! Now Delhi can smile again, Gibbs goes hell for leather by chipping down the track but he swings blindly and fails to make any contact whatsoever, the ball crashes onto middle and off and Nehra gives him a send-off of sorts. 22/1
7.6 to AA Bilakhia, Bilakhia gets adventurous by chipping down the track but he fails to read the googly and swings all around it, easy stumping for Karthik. 91/2
9.6 to AC Gilchrist, just at the stroke of the strategy break! Is there a twist here? Gilchrist charges down the track to hit with the turn but he messes up the loft, fails to get to the pitcj of the ball and the top edge swirls in the air to the off side, Nannes sprints from short third man and falls forward as he takes the catch. 102/3
13.4 to A Symonds, he tries to go downtown again, Symonds stays at the crease, fails to get the elevation and the ball dips to Warner at long-on. 137/4
