Mitchell Johnson came on to bowl the second over and off the last ball, Gambhir pulled over over square-leg for a four. Then, in the third over, Sandeep strayed on Uthappa’s pads and he was flicked through mid-wicket for a four. He then drove one through long-0ff and then straight down the ground for a four.
