Kyle Mills8.314224.94357012
0.3 to KD Karthik, That doesn't help him! Edge and gone! Another failure. It was a length delivery outside the off stump and DK has a lame poke at it. He fished out and got an edge. DK's time as opener (at least on tracks where the ball moves) has to come under immense scanner. Here, he seemed to shape for an on-the-up drive before just wafting softly at it. Just pushed weakly. Limply.. 0/1
46.3 to MM Patel, Munaf rushes down the track for the big lofted hit. But he didn't pick the slower one. He ended up lobbing it straight up. It went really high before it came down at mid-on. India all out 223. 223/10
Tim Southee1024944.90387020
5.4 to V Kohli, Virat is stunned. He doesn't move. He stares at the umpire Ashoka. He looks at his partner. Now he stirs into action and walks away slowly. Very slowly. This is what happened: It was a length delivery just outside off stump and Virat pushed out at it, bat away from the body. The keeper went up straight away. The fatal finger went up. Got to see the replays to confirm the edge. Replays in: There was some noise plus the snickometer shows there was a nick!. 27/2
12.6 to SK Raina, he has had problems with the short delivery and the pull shot. He falls to another faulty pull. This one wasn't even that short .. Raina was quick to get on to the back foot but pulled it to short midwicket fielder who lunged to his right to take a good catch. It was not a short ball, just back of a length, but Raina perhaps was anticipating a short ball and went back for the pull. He made contact with the top half of the bat.. 66/4
39.2 to RA Jadeja, The readers' curse strikes! Done in by the bouncer. It reared up sharply at Jadeja who had no clue;. he hopped, took his eyes of the ball and fended it in an ungainly manner. The ball popped up for a easy catch behind the stumps.. 199/7
43.1 to P Kumar, And PK too combusts spontaneously.. He moved outside the leg stump and top-edged the intended flat-batted pull to mid-on. Gone!. 207/9
Andy McKay813113.87334040
11.3 to Yuvraj Singh, And he is gone now. Again the balance was all awry. It was a shortish delivery outside the off stump and he went for the pull but only top edged it and the keeper jogged back to collect it. It climbed just below chest high and Yuvraj tried to pull it from well outside off stump. That did him in.. 61/3
Scott Styris603706.16165020
Nathan McCullum1003533.50371110
32.2 to V Sehwag, He has holed out at deep midwicket. He picked the flighted delivery from outside off and swung it straight to the fielder. Out after another fine knock. Valuable and entertaining.. 173/5
38.3 to MS Dhoni, Nathan takes out Dhoni. It was a flighted delivery outside off that didn't turn in. Dhoni lunged out for the square drive and edged it behind! Hopkins caught it on the rebound. It had popped out but he crouched quickly to take it again. 199/6
42.4 to A Nehra, What a soft dismissal! It was flighted really full and Nehra scooped it straight back to the bowler. A golf putt.. 207/8

Praveen Kumar823434.25354120
0.2 to MJ Guptill, plumb! dead plumb! PK is celebrating and appealing at the same time. He plays for swing, and consequently down the wrong line. But this one goes straight on, and he ends up playing around the front pad and misses. Caught right in front. 1/1
4.4 to LRPL Taylor, four, four, and gone! PK comes back superbly. Outswinger gets the edge. Close to off, just short of driving length, Taylor hangs the bat, ball takes a healthy edge, and Dhoni dives in front of first slip to take the catch. 14/3
8.5 to SB Styris, gone! played on! India on top. Back of a length, Styris looks to force it through the off side, but his feet are stuck, ends up playing away from the body, and the inside edge tickles the leg bail over. 22/4
Ashish Nehra6.111021.62331030
3.4 to BJ Watling, it's that big inswinger from back of a length again! Pitches around off, and jags back in, Watling plays it onto the stumps as he looks to steer clear of this delivery. 6/2
30.1 to KD Mills, PK hasn't had to move an inch at long-on to take this catch. The slower ball does it for India, Mills looks to hit this out of the ground but finds long-on. 118/10
Munaf Patel712133.00322030
16.5 to GJ Hopkins, Munaf is among the wickets too! Another ball that jags back n, this time from just outside off, beats his defence, and umpire Rauf has no second thoughts while ruling him out lbw. It's taking out the middle stump. 42/6
20.5 to GD Elliott, Munaf gets another! His accuracy works again. Pitched off and middle, moving in, and he plays across the line, missing it altogether, and is dead plumb. 52/7
22.2 to NL McCullum, Munaf gets three! Short ball around off, and he plays the limp pull shot, the top edge settles peacefully with mid-off. 53/8
Ishant Sharma612714.50255000
15.5 to KS Williamson, big offcutter, finds the gap between bat and pad! This is the in-between length, and it cuts through Williamson's defence, getting a faint inside edge on the way through. The ball that first brought Ishant fame, the big in-dipper. 41/5
Ravindra Jadeja302117.00130300
24.2 to TG Southee, and Dhoni's trick works! Six and out! Southee looks for another six, and this time he gets too much under it and finds long-on. 80/9
