Ishant Sharma402416.00132100
2.2 to K Goel, gone! Goel was getting a little desperate there, Ishant had done well to bog him down, landed on a good length and Goel tried to force that powerfully through the off side from the crease, was not the pitch, it took the outside edge and Gayle standing at first slip timed his jump perfectly to snap a sharp chance. 9/1
Ashok Dinda403418.50104110
17.2 to T Kohli, got onto him quick although a speed of 123.7 kmph doesn't seem too fast, tried to clear midwicket off that short ball, was a little too high, got the top edge and McCullum didn't have to move much to complete the catch. 131/6
Moises Henriques403218.0095010
15.4 to Yuvraj Singh, much quicker this time, bowled at 135.1 kmph, he tried to swat that past the on-side field but mistimed it straight to Yashpal Singh at deep midwicket, took it cleanly this time, clutching it to his chest. 122/5
Sourav Ganguly402426.0091100
6.2 to IK Pathan, the bowling change works! Meaty, length ball outside off and he slogs it well towards deep midwicket, but he doesn't time it well enough to clear the ropes as Kartik cups it standing right at the edge of the ropes, and ensures he doesn't lose his balance. Big blow that!. 47/2
6.4 to RS Bopara, Dada, you beauty! Shah Rukh has a look of satisfaction on his face. Short and wide, Bopara goes for the cut, gets a thin edge straight to McCullum who takes a sharp catch standing up. 48/3
