Mohammad Irfan925816.44266110
4.4 to G Gambhir, middle stump now! He was bowling it outside off consistently and now he bowls it fuller on the middle stump, Gambhir comes forward to play a loose drive, but is late on the ball, it crashes into the middle stump. Excellent set-up by Irfan there. And just like that, India are two down. 17/2
Junaid Khan914344.77353122
3.5 to V Sehwag, cleans him up now! A length delivery on the middle stump and its swings in to Sehwag, who tries to push it to cover without covering the line of the ball, the ball drives through the gap and crashed into off and middle. 17/1
5.4 to V Kohli, off stump now! It's the big wicket. Fuller length, comes in after pitching on off, Kohli comes forward and like the previous delivery, doesn't cover the line of the ball well. He wasn't really sure of which way the ball was going to go, it comes back and hits the top of off. That's a big big wicket. 19/3
5.6 to Yuvraj Singh, middle and off stump disturbed! Junaid is on a roll, he bowls a length ball on off stump, it just goes straight on and Yuvraj, instead of playing it straight, tries to play it towards midwicket and closes the face of the bat, gets beaten completely and India are four down.. 20/4
9.4 to RG Sharma, caught at third slip Another one goes down. It's a short of a length delivery on off, Rohit came forward to play at that but the ball bounces a touch extra. Rohit gets hit on the shoulder of the bat and it flies low to the right of Hafeez at third slip where he completes a tough catch very easily. 29/5

33.2 to SK Raina, bowled him! another one goes down. Raina tries to hoick this quicker delivery towards his favoured midwicket boundary, but the ball hurries on to him and knocks the leg stump back. Dhoni is disappointed with that shot as it was only the second Powerplay delivery. Pakistan make a breakthrough after 23 overs.. 102/6

Bhuvneshwar Kumar932723.00403010
0.1 to Mohammad Hafeez, bowls him first ball! He starts just like he did in Bangalore. It is a big inswinger from outside the off stump and Hafeez thought he was just letting a harmless delivery go, but this one came in and took the off stump out. The stumps take another battering and an excellent start for Bhuneshwar in ODI cricket. 0/1
10.2 to Azhar Ali, caught at midwicket! No life for Azhar though. It was a short delivery outside off and Azhar tries to drag it towards the on side, doesn't get any timing and he is not really in balance as he plays that shot, the ball lobs up tamely to Rohit Sharma at midwicket. Bhuvi gets his second. 21/2
Ishant Sharma1003913.90332010
38.2 to Misbah-ul-Haq, beaten by a slower delivery! He completely missed that one and played inside the line. His off stump takes a beating. He gave that look like he never picked up the delivery. Another wicket goes down but Pakistan still in control of this match.. 172/4
Ashok Dinda9.104514.90272010
30.3 to Younis Khan, attempts a yorker, it is a low full toss which is cracked to Ashwin at midwicket who is claiming a low catch. The umpires talk to each other to check on that. Ashwin took the catch and as he got up, didn't really react and gave the impression that he might have dropped it. But then he got up and looked towards Billy Bowden asking why the hold-up. Umpire tells him to wait. The replays show that the fielder got his hands under the ball just in time. So Younis has to go. 133/3
