Ryan Harris402506.25112000
RP Singh4047111.7584300
1.6 to JH Kallis, soft dismissal, Kallis will say; we had a fielder there, Deccan will say. a leg-stump half-volley, swinging in, Kallis flicks it, thinks it's four, and then he sees T Suman at short square leg take an easy catch. No. 20 for RP. 7/1
Andrew Symonds401513.75100000
9.2 to RE van der Merwe, smart stumping from Gilchrist. van der Merwe looks for the slog again, is beaten by the extra bounce, the momentum into the shot carries his front foot outside, and Gilchrist is alert and removes the bails before he can come back in. An amusing little innings. 62/2
Jaskaran Singh3032010.6684110
Pragyan Ojha403228.0083100
14.2 to R Dravid, caught in tow minds, is Dravid, this one is flighted, Dravid clears his leg, wants to slog-sweep, but at the last moment goes straight, gets a top-edge, and it is skied to long-off. 107/3
16.6 to LRPL Taylor, RP takes a catch this time, Taylor tries his slog-sweep, he has been tied down all over, and he gets a top edge towards deep midwicket, where RP doesn't make a mistake. 134/4

Anil Kumble402325.75134000
10.6 to TL Suman, soft dismissal, short ball, hit straight to van der Merwe at cover, he was looking to blast the leather of the ball, and was hurried a bit too by the skid. 91/2
18.1 to RG Sharma, Kohli is cooler than Sharma. Low fulltoss from Kumble, Sharma tries to clear long-on, doesn't middle, Kohli nonchalantly stations himself at the boundary, and takes it over his head. Doesn't move, doesn't emote. Like it's everyday business. 138/6
Jacques Kallis10808.0021000
Praveen Kumar4045011.2574210
Roelof van der Merwe403218.0081220
15.1 to A Symonds, and that's a big big wicket that he has got, pitched full, arm ball, Symonds goes for the slog-sweep, plays all over it and the off stump goes out of the ground. 119/4
Balachandra Akhil401824.5080010
6.5 to AC Gilchrist, and Gilchrist is gone, on the pull shot - hard to believe as it is, but once again the extra bounce troubles Gilchrist, who gets a top edge that lobs towards deep backward square, where van der Merwe takes a safe running catch. 68/1
14.1 to HH Gibbs, and he gets a wicket in the first over of his spell again, Gibbs looks to pull off the front foot, doesn't connect, gets one hand off, and top-edges it into the on side, where Pandey, running in from deep backward square leg, holds on to it. 116/3
