Umar Gul403749.2586001
4.5 to G Gambhir, that looks plumb and the umpire agrees. Gul delivers a slower ball, pitching outside off and angling into the left-hander, Gambhir heaves towards the leg side but was beaten by the change of pace. He was hit on the back foot and the impact was quite adjacent. Gul's bounced back from a hammering. 44/1
6.6 to AM Rahane, caught and bowled! Rahane tried to pull a short ball but he was early on the shot and ended up toe-ending it back to Gul for the simplest of catches. It just lobbed back to the bowler. And just like that India's good start has been neutralised.. 53/2
19.2 to Yuvraj Singh, superbly caught on the straight boundary! Yuvraj stayed in his crease and launched the ball dead straight, Malik ran to his left from long off and caught it just as it was about to clear the boundary. Yuvraj exits to rousing applause from a strong Motera crowd. 185/4
19.5 to MS Dhoni, middle stump is flat on its back. Dhoni tries to run a yorker from just outside off towards third man and plays on. Gul's bowling a terrific final over. Only three runs off the first five balls.. 187/5

Bhuvneshwar Kumar4046111.5064220
17.5 to Shahid Afridi, a full toss but Afridi's hit it straight to Rohit at long off! A loose delivery that was but Afridi did not place it, he hit it flat and Rohit caught it well inside the boundary. 163/4
Ishant Sharma403418.50103210
19.6 to Umar Gul, caught at deep point! Gul threw his bat at a length ball and sliced it over the infield. Rahane ran in from the deep to hold the catch. India get home by 11 runs to level the series 1-1.. 181/7
Ashok Dinda403639.0097000
16.2 to Umar Akmal, the stumps have been demolished. Dinda delivered a slower ball on middle and leg. Akmal had finished heaving across the line by the time it arrived and heard it smash into middle and leg stumps.. 146/3
18.2 to Mohammad Hafeez, Dinda's bowling a superb spell at the death! He follows up that six-run over with the wicket of Hafeez. He tried to clear the wide long-on boundary but mis-timed the shot. Raina came running in from the boundary and took the catch. 168/5
18.4 to Kamran Akmal, caught on the extra cover boundary! Akmal lofts the full ball inside out and connects well. But Kohli runs quickly to his left from long-off, covering a lot of ground to reach the ball and take the catch on the move. India are taking control of the end game. 172/6
Ravichandran Ashwin402817.0070200
9.5 to Nasir Jamshed, Ashwin's funny action works! That was much slower and delivered with a bit of a round-arm action. The ball, in the end, was a bit short and a bit wide. Jamshed had to reach for it and ended up connecting with the toe of his bat, giving point a simple catch. 74/1
Suresh Raina201206.0041000
Yuvraj Singh2023111.5022100
10.5 to Ahmed Shehzad, stumped! Motera erupts as Dhoni whips off the bails. Shehzad charged Yuvraj, who saw the batsman coming and fired the ball quick and cramped the right-hander for room. Shehzad swung but missed, he didn't even bother trying to get back into his crease. Good take from Dhoni, moved down leg side to collect.. 84/2
