Albie Morkel402426.00123000
18.3 to AM Rahane, Rahane walks across his stumps to get hold of that ball outside offstump, He ends up hitting straight up in the air as he tries to go aerial on the leg-side. Morkel takes the catch off his own bowling.. 139/5
18.4 to LRPL Taylor, full delivery, Taylor takes a big step forward and wants to hit that over long-on, but only makes contact with the toe end of the bat and feeds it down Mike Hussey's throat, Morkel on a hat-trick. 139/6
Doug Bollinger402807.00103001
Ravichandran Ashwin403619.0076010
12.2 to AL Menaria, Menaria's time at the crease comes to an end. Shorter delivery and he goes on the pull but doesn't get enough on it and Vijay has to backpedal to collect but takes the catch comfortably in the end. 92/2
Shadab Jakati402225.5081000
10.1 to SR Watson, what a stunner of a catch from Jakati! Watson has hit that flat delivery very hard, straight back at the bowler and the umpire was in danger of having his head taken off if Jakati hadn't leapt in front of him and taken it with both hands.. 86/1
14.3 to J Botha, Botha's move up the order is also not successful today. He gave himself room to hit that full ball over extra cover but got it wrong, ended up getting a leading edge and was caught by Suresh Raina at cover.. 109/3
Suraj Randiv403218.0095000
15.4 to R Dravid, Goner! Easy as you like it, Vijay is calm as ever as he takes the catch. Dravid is going for the big shot off the short ball, rocks back and pulls to deep mid-wicket. No century for Dravid today, that a lot of our readers were hoping for.. 117/4

Johan Botha402215.5090000
1.5 to M Vijay, full length and raps Vijay on the pads, this was definitely not bat. Botha appeals with one arm and then the other and eventually begs for it to be given and it is.. 8/1
Shane Watson402706.7562000
Siddharth Trivedi3.4037110.0933030
18.3 to SK Raina, and now we see it again for no good reason. Mistimed pull shot from Raina, the bat seemed to slip in his hand and get an awkward edge and it's an easy catch for Johan Botha.. 145/2
