3.6 Dernbach to Gambhir, OUT, outstanding stuff from Dernbach, the previous one zipped away, this one comes in slightly after pitching on a good length on off, Gambhir driving at the original angle, enough of a gap between bat and pad for the stumps to take a blow
G Gambhir b Dernbach 8 (13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 61.53
4.3 Finn to Rahane, OUT, bowled 'em, inswing accompanied with seam this time, Rahane has been tentative to get forward, and it has caused his downfall, goes across a bit in the crease to a good length delivery outside off, and defends far away from the body, ball swings in late, and disturbs another set of stumps through the wide-open gate
AM Rahane b Finn 4 (14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57
15.2 Tredwell to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, given leg-before this time, Yuvraj not looking particularly happy, he has a few words to say as he walks back, the source of his dismay is that he gloved the attempted sweep onto the pad, although he was struck in front of the stumps
Yuvraj Singh lbw b Tredwell 32 (37b 5x4 0x6) SR: 86.48
49.2 Dernbach to Dhoni, OUT, Dhoni goes, finally, after one more fighting, counter-attacking, masterly ODI innings, taken at sweeper cover right at the edge of the rope
MS Dhoni c Root b Dernbach 72 (66b 7x4 2x6) SR: 109.09
1.2 Shami Ahmed to Bell, OUT, gone, Shami pitching it up wide for the drive, and getting it to swing away appreciably, Bell chasing it, and only managing an edge to Dhoni, would have been called a wide had Bell not meddled with it
IR Bell c †Dhoni b Shami Ahmed 1 (5m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66
10.1 Kumar to Cook, OUT, Bhuvneshwar striking just after the fielding restrictions are over, Cook missing the work to the leg side to a good length delivery, caught right in front of middle, and umpire Kulkarni sends him back, but replays show the ball pitched just outside leg stump, ahem, ahem, ahem
AN Cook lbw b Kumar 17 (46m 27b 3x4 0x6) SR: 62.96
14.2 Kumar to Pietersen, OUT, Bhuvneshwar, massive strike, Kochi erupts, KP bowled off a sharp, sharp incutter, pitched good length, angled in slightly, and then jagged in to go past the inside edge of KP's angled bat, he was trying to run it to off
KP Pietersen b Kumar 42 (58m 44b 7x4 0x6) SR: 95.45
