Sudeep Tyagi602033.33293030
0.1 to NV Ojha, What a start from Sudeep Tyagi. It landed back of length just outside off and cut in quickly. Naman had shouldered arms! Clatter. The off stump was pegged back.. 0/1
0.3 to SS Kumar, Oh boy! Tyagi is on fire. Lovely line and length again. He has nailed him in front. It was fuller in length this time, again moved in from outside off, the batsman was caught at the crease, just had a waft at it but was done in for the pace and by the movement. Gone!. 0/2
6.1 to Harbhajan Singh, The off stump has gone for a little walk. Full in length, moves in late, Harbhajan is caught at the crease, no foot movement, just pushes out at it. Too late. The ball has gone through the bat and pad and knocked out the off stump out of its peg. Enjoy your lovely walk!. 19/3
Ishant Sharma6.102624.21274030
25.4 to AB Dinda, It's all over. Another short delivery, swatted away to mid-off. Nine wickets down. 77/9
27.1 to SK Trivedi, cleaned him up! Full in length on the middle, moves outside leg, has a waft, misses and it's clatterrrrrrrrr time.. 84/10
Ravichandran Ashwin721111.57330000
11.2 to MS Dhoni, Ash strikes second ball. He lured Dhoni out of the track and Dhoni mishit it straight to mid-off where Ishant swooped low in front of him to take it. 49/4
Munaf Patel832142.62363000
12.2 to W Jaffer, And he gets him on that front foot. His perennial weakness again exposes him. Full delivery on the middle and Wasim is late, as ever, in getting forward, tries to work it across the line, the balance is awry and he is caught dead in front of leg and middle. It would have hit the leg.. Jaffer is so good on the back foot but is immense surprise to me how he has never ever really worked out his weakness on the front foot. pity. Elegant player but always found out in that zone.. 53/5
12.5 to YK Pathan, Yusuf is gone. As Fred Trueman would have said, "I don't understand what's going off out there!" Full delivery outside off, driven uppishly straight to mid-off. Thank you come again.. 53/6
22.3 to AM Nayar, Munaf has cleaned up Nayar. Nayar goes for a big swing at a length delivery and drags it back to the stumps. 70/7
24.2 to S Sreesanth, Done in by the bouncer. Sreesanth not happy. It kicked up on the middle and leg, Sreesanth took his eyes off the ball and fended it away, the ball appeared to go off the arm guard and it lobbed up behind the wicket. Saha, the keeper, rushed forward and dived to take a sharp catch. 74/8

Harbhajan Singh702333.28240000
9.2 to M Vijay, spins in from just outside off stump, a tad quicker, Vijay tried to go back and play it but missed and was struck in front of leg stump. Think it might have missed the leg stump seeing the turn there. Anyway that's that. He was on the back foot and the umpire reckons it would definitely have hit the leg stump.. 40/1
9.4 to S Sohal, Harbhajan gets his second wicket. The topspinner just outside off stump, Sohal pushes inside the line, thinking it would turn in, and gets the outside edge. Naman almost dropped this also but managed to catch it on the rebound.. 40/2
17.4 to S Dhawan, what a beauty! Harbhajan shows what he is capable of. It was flighted from round the stumps, lands on a length around middle and off, Dhawan looked to come forward before he went back and the ball spun past his defensive poke to clip the off stump. Had he gone forward he would have covered the turn and got the opportunity to smother it or had he gone back straightaway too, he could have kept it out but that moment of confusion, whether should I go forward or back, has caused him . Fine innings, though.. 73/3
