View dismissal SC Ganguly run out (Hodge/†Gilchrist) 0 5 4 0 0 0.00
0.4 from Lee, oh thats just plain ridiculous! Lee bangs in a short ball on middle and leg, Ganguly gets up and plays it down into the midwicket region and sets off, Hodge swoops across, Tendulkar comes down a few steps and says go back, but Ganguly's halfway down the track and cant get back to his crease and Gilchrist just has to take an easy return over the stumps and whip off the bails 5/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c †Gilchrist b Lee 47 128 73 9 0 64.38
25.3 edged and gone! A Lee special, the best ball he's bowled today, pitching on a good length and sucking Tendulkar forward into the straight drive, then deviating and drawing the outside edge which Gilchrist gleefully snaps up! The bowling changes works perfectly and Tendulkar goes for 47 92/6
View dismissal R Dravid lbw b Lee 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.5 thats plumb! Dravid goes for a first-ball duck! Lee pitches full on middle and off and gets the ball to swing on, Dravid tries to play it back straight while hopping back, gets stuck in the crease and is caught dead in front of leg! The ball stayed a touch low but thats out anywhere in the world 5/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c †Gilchrist b Johnson 1 16 7 0 0 14.28
3.5 edged and well taken! Johnson bowls another short delivery, it sits up and Yuvraj stands leaden-footed as he goes for an airy shot outside off stump, theres the thinnest of under-edges which Gilchrist holds very low above the ground! An especially good take because Gilchrist was moving to his left initially but then had to adjust as the ball deviated to his right, plucking it one-handed very low. India jolted by three quick strikes 12/3
View dismissal RV Uthappa lbw b Johnson 5 17 6 1 0 83.33
7.1 another one bites the dust! Johnson pitches it back of a length, Uthappa gets a stride forward from his crease and plays, but misses, and the ball raps him on the pads as it angles across off stump, and even before Johnson and Gilchrist finish appealing umpire Sahiba's finger shoots up ... an iffy call, as it looked like the ball was going outside the line of impact. And the height is an issue. 33/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c †Gilchrist b Johnson 4 12 7 1 0 57.14
9.2 and the captain goes! Johnson bowls it down the leg side off a short length, angling it away from the right-hander and Dhoni goes for some sort of one-handed nudge off the pads, there's touch and deviation and Gilchrist takes another good catch, this time diving full length to his left and plucking it ... are India in trouble or what? 43/5
View dismissal IK Pathan c †Gilchrist b Johnson 26 84 63 2 1 41.26
27.4 and thats four for Johnson! Simple dismissal, the ball pitching on a good length, moving away ever so slightly, drawing the thick outside edge off the bat and Gilchrist takes it easily 106/8
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c Bracken b Hogg 5 6 3 1 0 166.66
26.6 and Hogg wins that easy battle! A needless, reckless shot from Harbhajan, not even waiting to see what Hogg's got to offer, instead preferring to slog down the ground, miscuing it and giving mid-off, running back a little, a simple catch 105/7
View dismissal M Kartik c †Gilchrist b Johnson 0 11 4 0 0 0.00
29.1 maiden five-for for Johnson, a special moment! Steams in, bangs it in on a short length and forces Kartik to hop up and steer it into Gilchrist's safe gloves! India nine down! 107/9
View dismissal Z Khan c †Gilchrist b Bracken 28 51 44 0 2 63.63
39.4 and thats the end of that! An enterprising stand of 41 is snapped by Bracken as Zaheer drives a full delivery and gets a thin edge into Gilchrist's gloves, his sixth catch today 148/10
