Anil Kumble401223.00140000
13.2 to ML Hayden, innings comes to an end with a superb catch on the ropes! Kumble floats it up, Hayden swings hard, the ball is up in the for some time during which Vinay Kumar runs across on the deep midwicket boundary trying to size it up, then he runs and takes it, losing balance, he trips ... whoops, one step, two .. but all is well in the end as he makes sure he's just inside the ropes ... amazing reflexes and recovery. 101/4
16.1 to S Badrinath, the wheels on Chennai's bus go ... off, off, off ... and thats 22 balls since the last boundary, as Badri comes down and tries to go for half a dozen but fails to find the desired elevation, Uthappa at long-on settles under it and takes with ease. 107/5
Vinay Kumar3030210.0055010
18.2 to JDP Oram, edged and taken! Vinay persists with that attempted yorker outside off stump, lands it right in the blockhole and Oram, backing away, swishes a thin nick through to Boucher. 118/7
18.3 to L Balaji, a first-baller for Balaji, making a total mess of his attempt to pull a short-pitched ball dug in outside off stump, gets a top edge that Kumble gobbles up at midwicket. 118/8
Praveen Kumar3.403519.5475100
17.4 to JA Morkel, another one goes down, and this too a full toss! Albie just doesn't look the player he's made out to be, slicing a wide full toss to Kumble at extra cover, who takes it easily. 118/6
Jacques Kallis411824.50132000
3.3 to M Vijay, there's a good change-up delivery! Kallis put in the effort and produces a short one that surprises Vijay, a tad late into his attempted pull, and he gives a catch to Uthappa down at fine leg, who gets across and times his collection to perfection. 32/1
5.4 to SK Raina, done in by a South African tag team! Kallis digs it in short outside leg stump, into Raina's body, and he just hops up and turns it off his ribs toward midwicket, where van der Merwe dives forward to take a good catch. 48/2
Roelof van der Merwe402917.2580200
12.1 to MS Dhoni, well held, Roelof! Thats one for the reflex album, he dove to his right side, the wrong side, and intercepted a hard drive in the air from Dhoni, who used his feet to a tossed up delivery and chipped it back. 93/3

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Albie Morkel401323.25161010
0.2 to JH Kallis, big wicket in the first over! Albie pitches fullish marginally outside off stump, Kallis presses forward gently, not a big stride at all and he gets hit on the front roll, after a long thought umpire Harper raises the finger of fate. 2/1
4.4 to RV Uthappa, he's got him lbw! Pitches fullish, comes back in and gets him in front of middle and leg as he's late on the shot, seemed unsure of whether to go forward or back. 30/3
Sudeep Tyagi2021110.5054010
1.4 to R Dravid, straight to backward point! Not a shot Dravid will be too proud of, just failing to keep a short ball down, he aimed to slap it away but just steered it to Badrinath, who cupped it in front of his face with few hassles. 12/2
Lakshmipathy Balaji403218.0071210
14.2 to V Kohli, great catch by Oram! Kohli pulls a short ball from outside off stump, looks a cracking shot over midwicket until Oram sprints forward from the ropes and dives forward to grasp a tumbling catch an inch or two off the grass, awesome effort and do we have another twist?. 86/4
Shadab Jakati402506.2581100
Muthiah Muralidaran402416.00143100
15.1 to MV Boucher, and he's struck first ball, tossing the doosra up outside off stump, it takes the outside edge as Boucher loses balance on the drive, Hayden gobbles it up to his left at slip. 91/5
Jacob Oram1.401227.2031000
17.3 to B Akhil, smart catch from Tyagi! Oram gets Akhil with a short ball, he slogs at top edges and Tyagi, running in from third man, dives superbly and clutches the steepler as it dies in front of him ... its moments like these, and Oram's earlier catch, will really matter in such situations. 107/7
19.1 to LRPL Taylor, Taylor what have you done? Takes a step forward and across, Oram holds back the length and Taylor top edges the ball up in the air, Dhoni doesn't for a second lose sight of it as he runs back towards the boundary and takes it easily ... Kiwi to Kiwi, Oram has won that battle when it mattered most. 125/8
