BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Zaheer Khan2786942.551277000
68.1 to LRPL Taylor, That round-the-stumps angle has worked for Zaheer. This landed well outside the off stump but perhaps that angle forced Taylor to flirt with it. The ball shaped away, with the shiny side, after landing and took the edge. It was an halfhearted attempt in the end; he just sort of wafted at it.. 206/3
88.2 to TG McIntosh, Fatal inside edge. It was a length delivery outside the off stump line and McIntosh pushed out at it, bat away from the body, and stabbed outside the line. The ball collided with the inside edge and fell on the stumps. McIntosh departs after setting up a good base for New Zealand.. 253/4
92.5 to GJ Hopkins, Trapped! Hopkins couldn't handle the round-the-stumps angle this time. It came in from outside off stump - it landed close to the off - but he chose to shoulder arms. Mistake. The ball kept coming in and hit his pad. No shot offered. It doesn't matter where it hits him as long as its going to crash into the stumps. Gone!. 269/5
96.2 to KS Williamson, Dead plumb! Zaheer is creating problems from round the stumps. It was the normal delivery coming in from that angle. it didn't straigthen, it didn't jag back in, it just came in with that angle but Kane got into a tangle. He was trying to drive it to the leg side without getting into a right position and missed. It would have definitely crashed into the stumps. He played all around it, he moved that front leg too far across and couldn't get his bat around in time.. 287/6
Sreesanth2118814.199114014
3.2 to BB McCullum, Sreesanth has produced a beauty! Cracker! It lands short of length - that lovely seam rushing on straight - around the off stump and straightened. And bounced. McCullum was squared-up and pushed out at it. The ball clipped the outer edge and flew to the keeper. McCullum swung around but his worst fears were confirmed. Gone!. 4/1
Harbhajan Singh35.3107642.141645100
103.5 to DL Vettori, Gone this time! It landed on a length on the off and middle and straightened. Vettori went down on his knee and tried to sweep it but didn't connect. It hit him on the back thigh in front of the off stump. Will confirm whether there was any edge post the replays. Replays in: They don't show any edge. That would have hit the off and middle stump line. Vettori didn't look too happy. Was there a thin bottom-edge? The replays don't confirm it We need snicko and hotspot.Snickometer thing in: It doesn't show any edge. 312/7
109.1 to JD Ryder, Ryder is gone. New Zealand continue to collapse. It dipped on Ryder who stuttered out to defend and the ball turned to clip the outer edge and went to first slip. Harbhajan signals 'bye bye'! Fine delivery. It came in from round the stumps, dipped in front of the middle and leg line and turned. 331/8
111.2 to TG Southee, Stumped! Southee rushed down the track for the big hit but the ball went on straight, winked past the edge, and Dhoni did the rest.. 338/9
117.3 to CS Martin, And the phantom, who has never got out against India before, decides to gift his wicket. It turned in towards his pad and Martin nudges it to right of leg slip where Sehwag pouches it. And Sehwag runs back to the pavilion to get ready to bat.The ghost who bats walks back casually.. 350/10
Pragyan Ojha2748012.961127100
49.5 to MJ Guptill, Out for 85! A very fine innings but its over now. He shuffled too far across. It landed on the leg and middle line and straightened a touch. Guptill shuffled across and tried to work it to square-leg region for a single but missed it completely. Trapped! It would have hit the leg stump.. 151/2

Chris Martin2968713.0013814101
104.5 to VVS Laxman, Laxman is gone. It landed back of length just outside offand moved in. Laxman went for the whippy shot of his pads but missed. Would it have missed leg? Would it have hit leg? Taufel reckons it would have hit the stumps. Will confirm after a replay and they show that it would have crashed into leg and middle. 326/6
Tim Southee33611933.6014413210
41.3 to G Gambhir, Gautam Gambhir has been strangled down the leg side. It kicked up from short of length, from round the stumps, and moved down the leg side. Gambhir shaped for the clip behind square but must have got a thin nick through to the keeper. He trudges off.. 160/2
87.6 to R Dravid, No replays required this time, it is absolutely, positively, dead plumb. And very well bowled too. The ball is shaping to swing away, pitches off, and then goes straight on. Dravid is obviously expecting swing, and is beaten by the angle and is hit in front of middle and leg. Gone. 259/4
114.5 to Z Khan, Top edged to fine-leg! It was the bouncer and Zaheer went for the pull and got the edge. The ball ballooned down to fine-leg. They have been bouncing at Zaheer for a while now. He gave them before and they have returned it with interest.. 355/8
Brent Arnel2457903.2910911100
Daniel Vettori49.4713552.7122212300
40.5 to V Sehwag, And he is gone now. He had that trouble with the movement behind the sightscreen, asked some one to move away, and has fallen now. It was a flighted delivery on the middle stump and he went down on his knee for the big slog sweep. Whoosh. The bat went through thin air and the ball went past it to fall on the middle stump. Vettori is pumped up and Sehwag begins his walk-back to the hut.. 160/1
53.1 to SR Tendulkar, A wonderful combo from Dan and Ross Taylor (at first slip) gets rid of Tendulkar, Adrenalin rush? Or overpowering intent to break free? It was an unTendulkar like shot. He rushed down the track, never got to the pitch of the ball, and ended up almost going for a slog over the onside field. The edge flew to the right of Rosco who stretched his right hand to pluck it! Tendulkar walks back. Hyderabad sighs. The news channels can go back to proper news coverage now. Tendulkar went down the track, got outside the line of the leg stump and the ball dipped and turned from outside leg. Tendulkar then tried to slog it between midwicket and mid-on. Edge and gone! Dan roars. 184/3
99.5 to SK Raina, Raina does a Umar Akmal. He rushes down the track, gets beaten in flight but ends up slogging it high across to the on side. The deep midwicket fielder settles under it. Vettori sports a lovely naughty smile! He shuts his eyes and giggles.. 311/5
105.6 to MS Dhoni, Dan takes out Dhoni in some style. It was a lovely flighted delivery that dipped on the lunging Dhoni who stretched forward as he always does. He was no where close to the ball but reached out to chip it tamely to short cover. Fine delivery but quite a poor shot. Done in the flight.. 336/7
143.4 to S Sreesanth, Out. Finally! It landed just outside off on a length and tilted in towards the off stump. Sreesanth leaned forward to defend but pushed outside the line. And he was hit around the off-stump line. Sreesanth probably thought it hit him outside off but replays show that he was hit on the off stump line. Half the ball in, half the ball out. Harbhajan raises his bat to acknowledge the cheers. What a knock. What entertainment. Fine support from Sreesanth who took lots of body blows last evening.. 472/10

Zaheer Khan7.312102.80373000
Sreesanth27512134.4810919024
60.1 to LRPL Taylor, What a fine delivery this! It landed on a length outside off stump and cut in with the shiny side. Ross Taylor stabbed outside the line and the ball threaded the bat and pad gap to knock out the off stump. A delighted Sreesanth turns and runs towards Zaheer Khan at mid-off. 187/3
128.3 to BB McCullum, The entertaining innings is over. BMac is out after a sizzling knock. Sreesanth did him in with a slower one, a legbreak. The adrenalin rush had set in and Brendon went for the big lofted hit down the ground but was done in by the change in pace. THe ball ballooned up towards mid-on. Sreesanth held his arms across his chest and looked at McCullum. He then turned around in time to see Raina take it. A very stylish knock comes to an end. 431/7
132.1 to TG Southee, Clatter! Sreesanth wins the personal battle. It lands on a length around off and moves in towards the middle. Southee goes for a big hoick across the line and miss. Gone! The umpire checked with the third umpire whether it was a no ball; it wasn't.. 447/8
Pragyan Ojha47.31413722.882078400
35.4 to TG McIntosh, Pujara takes a good one at short-leg. Was there any bat involved though? McIntosh went for the sweep shot and it bounded of the pad to left of Pujara who stretched his left hand out to pluck it. The first replay doesn't show any edge. Let's see what the slow-mo and snicko say. Pujara was initially trying to take evasive action but adjusts quickly to see that there might be a chance for a catch. Further replays also don;t show any edge or glove.. 125/1
53.6 to MJ Guptill, It landed on a length outside off and turned slightly. Guptill went for the cut shot and edged it to Dhoni! Then the fun began: guptill was walking off when the umpire had doubts about the no ball and stopped him! Deja-vu for Guptil but this time around, it wasn't a no ball. Gone!. 174/2
Harbhajan Singh38311713.0716212201
107.6 to KS Williamson, Given out lbw. It was delivered from round the stumps, it landed on the middle and leg and turned a touch. Kane stumbled out to work it to the on side and was struck on the pad. Would it have hit the leg stump? would it have missed it? Will confirm after a replay. It shows that this one would have missed the leg stump. 345/5
Sachin Tendulkar20703.5060000
Suresh Raina1323822.92555000
68.3 to JD Ryder, Cool offbreak this! Raina takes out Ryder. It drifts in from round the stumps, lands on a length around middle and off and turned. Ryder pushes inside the line and gets a thin edge through to Dhoni.. 221/4
120.6 to DL Vettori, Catch no 199 for Rahul. Dan went down the track and drove it uppishly to left of short cover where Rahul lunged to take a sharp catch. Three out of Raina's four Test wickets are that of captains. Ponting once and Dan twice.. 396/6
