  • 3.1 Malinga to Uthappa, FOUR, short of a length and outside the off, Uthappa goes after this one, cracking it away past cover. The placement is excellent and the timing better ... that one runs away to the boundary

  • 4.4 Vaas to Uthappa, FOUR, overpitched and outside the off stump ... BANG! Uthappa gets across nicely and drives on the up in fine style through cover. That is a gorgeous shot

  • 4.6 Vaas to Uthappa, FOUR, back of a driving length, on the stumps, Uthappa drives anyway, picking the ball up and lofting it over the bowler's head. No chance for any of the fielders there and Uthappa is well and truly on his way

  • 8.2 Vaas to Sehwag, FOUR, short of a good length and outside the off, the ball comes onto the bat nicely and Sehwag carves it through cover in typical fashion. That was well struck!

  • 8.4 Vaas to Sehwag, FOUR, BANG! That ball does not swing, is a touch too full and Sehwag carts it back over the bowler's head. That's another boundary for Sehwag ...

  • 9.2 Fernando to Sehwag, FOUR, a touch of width and the ball disappears, Sehwag flashes hard and the ball runs away past the slips cordon to the third-man boundary

  • 12.2 Vaas to Sehwag, FOUR, Stand and deliver. Vaas slightly outside off and Sehwag pushes forward and creams it through the gaps in the cover. He beats the field and nobody has a chance there. Will this be Sehwag'd day?

  • 13.5 Fernando to Dravid, FOUR, too full, too straight, Dravid comes across nicely and flicks delectably through midwicket. That's four all the way

  • 16.5 Muralitharan to Sehwag, FOUR, this was definitely the doosra but it was short and wide and sat up, Sehwag rocks back and cuts it beautifully in front of square for a boundary

  • 17.4 Fernando to Dravid, FOUR, very full and slipping well down the leg side, Dravid loves it there and sends the ball packing with a minimum of fuss. flicked away beautifully through square-leg for a boundary

  • 36.1 Malinga to Dravid, FOUR, full and just outside off stump, Dravid cuts it late, ala Arjuna Ranatunga. Delectable late cut.

  • 36.3 Malinga to Dravid, FOUR, Full and well outside off stump, slashed away to third man. It takes a bit of outside edge and runs to the boundary. Dravid is on 49.

  • 36.4 Malinga to Dravid, FOUR, brings up his fifty in style. A fierce flick behind square. Full and on the legs, he leant forward and flicked it in the air. Three fours in this over. Dravid is carrying on the fight and the Indian hopes.

  • 36.5 Malinga to Dravid, FOUR, oh ho! Another one. Smashed through backward point. Short and outside off stump, Dravid leans back and cuts it past point.

  • 40.3 Muralitharan to Patel, FOUR, doosra outside the off stump, sits up and asked to be whacked, Munaf obliges

  • 41.1 Fernando to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, crack! full and straight, Harbhajan has a go and whacks the ball over midwicket for a boundary. Desperation here at the end
