6.1

Hoggard to Sehwag, OUT, first strike! short rising delivery, pitched outside the off stump and coming in with the angle, too good a delivery for Sehwag, who fends at it awkwardly, ball clips the shoulder of the bat and goes straight to Shah at first slip, that's big wicket - India in trouble here!

11.2

Hoggard to Jaffer, OUT, Hoggard strikes! and once again it's the short rising delivery that gets him a wicket - this one was angling down the leg side, Jaffer shoulders arms, trying to get out of the way but the ball rises just the extra bit and clips the glove, Jones moves across to his left and and takes it comfortably

W Jaffer c †Jones b Hoggard 11 (55m 39b 2x4 0x6) SR: 28.20

18.1

Anderson to Tendulkar, OUT, got'm! straight delivery outside the off stump, bit too wide, Tendulkar drives away from his body, ball clips the toe end of the bat and goes straight Jones behind the stumps, poor shot from the little master and he pays the price! Anderson rewarded for some good bowling.

Flintoff to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, end of the beginning! short and wide outside the off stump, Yuvraj needlessly follows it and the ends up with a thick edge, it was so far outside the off stump that the ball clipped the toe end of the bat, Jones dives across to his left and takes a good catch, Flintoff strikes early, India four down!

54.1

Anderson to Dravid, OUT, and they get through the wall! good length delivery, drifting down the leg side, Dravid flicks eyeing the fine leg fence but the shot is not timed well enough and the ball goes behind after clipping the edge, Jones covers lot of ground and takes it diving full length to his left, amazing catch!

83.4

Flintoff to Dhoni, OUT, what an anti-climax! after three consecutive fours, Dhoni plays one to the midwicket region and takes off for a suicidal run, Anderson had just the one stump to aim and he scores a direct hit at the bowler's end, third umpire is woken up and the RED light flashes! Dhoni is just out of his crease

MS Dhoni run out 64 (206m 118b 10x4 0x6) SR: 54.23

India 212/7   A Kumble 8* (20b)   A Flintoff 16.4-4-48-1

87.2

Anderson to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, gone! short of a good length delivery outside the off stump, no real width there but Harbhajan flashes hard at it and the ball flies off the outside edge, Jones dives across high to his right and takes a stunner, Anderson strikes - India eight down

Harbhajan Singh c †Jones b Anderson 2 (18m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Panesar to Kumble, OUT, tossed up on the middle and off stump line, straightened a bit, Kumble sweeps but fails to connect and gets hit on the pad right in line with the off stump, loud appeal and the dreadful finger goes up, Panesar with the breakthrough, end of a gutsy innings and a fine partnership
