Over 4.5 M Morkel bowls a pitched up delivery to V Kohli,  out Caught by Uthappa!! Morkel cramps Kohli for room with a bouncer, Kohli tries to pull, but gloves it to the left of the keeper, who takes a simple catch. Kohli c Uthappa b M Morkel 13(15) 

Over 7.3 YK Pathan to KD Karthik, out Bowled!!  It wasn't wide enough to employ the cut shot. Looked like the ball kept a bit low as well. Karthik gave some room and tried to cut it hard, but the ball spun back in and shattered the off stump. D Karthik b Y Pathan 6(8) 

Over 7.6 YK Pathan to Mandeep Singhout Bowled!! What a bowling change by Gambhir. Pathan has got two wickets in the over. Nothing but a flighted delivery from Pathan, Mandeep goes for a needless reverse sweep, misses it completely and loses the leg stump. Mandeep b Y Pathan 6(3) 

Over 10.6 KC Cariappa to AB de Villiers, out Stumped!! It was the quicker and flatter one outside off, de Villiers came dancing down the track and wanted to cut it hard, he misses and Uthappa takes the bails off in a flash. de Villiers st Uthappa b Kishan Cariappa 28(13) 

Over 14.4 Shakib Al Hasan to DJG Sammy, out Stumped!!  Shakib gave this one more air as Sammy came down the track, the ball spins away as Sammy went through the shot, he misses and Uthappa disturbs the stumps in no time. Sammy st Uthappa b Shakib 7(9)

Over 16.1 Shakib Al Hasan to CH Gayle,  out Abbott Run Out!! 1 run completed. It was full and on the stumps, Gayle drives it to wide long-off and called Abbott back for the second. Morkel was quick to run across to his right, picks the ball up and fires the throw at the bowler's end. Abbott run out (M Morkel/Shakib) 1(4)

Over 18.2 M Morkel to CH Gayle,  out Gayle Run Out!! 1 run completed.It was another length ball from Morkel, Gayle heaved across the line and the ball was going over Pandey at deep mid-wicket, but Pandey leaps up high in the air, takes the catch and throws the ball back in play as he was falling over the ropes. He then was hobbling a little, but had the presence of mind to quickly pick up the ball and fire in the throw at the striker's end. Gayle run out (M Pandey/Uthappa) 96(56)
