Mashrafe Mortaza to Ganguly, OUT, And he is gone now! It landed short, moved across Ganguly who went for a pull shot from outside off and it ballooned up towards mid-off. It didn't kick up as much as Ganguly might have anticipated; It was below chest-high. More than the length, he was done in by the decision to go for a pull shot to a delivery outside the off stump.
