Mohali Test - Sehwag's dismissal tilts match towards Oz

The Indian attack, handicapped by the non-availability of Ishant Sharma, were made to toil hard by Watson first and then Paine and the tailenders. The Indian bowlers bowled a tight line but with the soft ball, all the bowlers except Zaheer could hardly trouble the batsmen. The Oz batsmen also made the opportunities count and ensured that staying at the crease first made way to the strategy of making runs as well.

Sehwag started the Indian response in his usual manner and Ricky Ponting was very soon worried. But a ball that bounced more than he expected, made Sehwag play a false shot and top-edged the ball off Johnson. Gambhir's dismissal also meant that 2 of the 6 specialist batsmen were back in the hut. Now, it is upto the legends - Dravid, Tendulkar and Laxman - and dashers - Raina and Dhoni - to take them closer to the Oz total.
