- India was showing strong position due to Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Yuvraj being on the crease.
- Andrew Flintoff was bowling in the 18th over and Dhoni was ready to give the strike back to his partner because he was playing the ball well.

Absolute carnage, ‘Shastri said in the commentary box. Broad had no idea what he had to do and he changed the angle and took the wicket, only to complete the height of the waist and the UV compiled it over the point boundary. 4 in 4
Now, an elite Broad changed the angle and went on the wicket.
- They cast an off-stump line around the mid-pitch mark and the result was the same. This time on the deep square leg. One line in 5 A helpless Broad could offer only a bang smile, but the crowd was a ball.
