7.6
Harbhajan Singh to Katich, OUT, terrific catch by Tendulkar! Delivered from round the wicket, gives it a lot of flight, Katich chases a delivery wide of the offstump, the ball lobs off the leading edge and stays in the air for a few anxious seconds, Tendulkar at short point lunges forward for the dive, realises that the ball was dipping but still managed to cup his hands behind the ball on the tumble, you should have seen the delight on his face when he gathered himself

SM Katich c Tendulkar b Harbhajan Singh 20 (26b 4x4 0x6) SR: 76.92

10.2
Sharma to Ponting, OUT, Ishant hits the timber, superb delivery, pitches around the off stump and comes back in off the pitch, Ponting commits early to the forward prod but somehow the ball sneaks through the daylight between bat and pad and knocks the off stump back, Ishant now gets Ponting for the fifth time in as many matches

RT Ponting b Sharma 2 (11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 18.18

Congratulations on a fabulous victory.

Zen master Zaheer Khan was in a different zone today, did anybody noticed him closing his eyes and rehearsing the delivery before bowling.
