View dismissal V Sehwag c Hayden b Lee 63 152 90 6 0 70.00
32.5 caught! Sehwag hardly moves his feet as he tries to cut one from Lee that holds its line outside off stump, the thick outside edge races to Hayden, who is back at first slip, and he takes the catch comfortably 122/3
View dismissal IK Pathan c †Gilchrist b Johnson 9 34 21 2 0 42.85
7.3 caught! That was an excellent ball from Johnson, the length on off stump drew Pathan forward and the ball bounced and seamed away from the left-hander, Pathan defended with the bat a little away from his body and the outside edge was easily taken by Gilchrist 34/1
View dismissal R Dravid c Ponting b Johnson 18 73 55 0 0 32.72
23.2 caught! Dravid fends at one that pitches around off stump and slants across the right-hander, Dravid fends timidly at it, looking to defend, and the outside edge goes straight to Ponting at second slip for the easiest of catches 82/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c Hogg b Lee 153 342 205 13 3 74.63
96.3 caught! Tendulkar tries to take on Lee, who bowls a short ball, Tendulkar tries to pull but hits it high in the air towards deep square leg where Hogg runs in from the boundary and takes a simple catch, the ball hit the high part of the bat, Lee pats Tendulkar on the back, acknowledging a wonderful innings, it's been an absorbing battle between Lee and Tendulkar 359/7
View dismissal SC Ganguly lbw b Hogg 7 42 29 1 0 24.13
41.6 a loud long appeal from Hogg and Rauf raises the finger after a long think, Ganguly got a long stride forward and tried to sweep, he was hit just in line of off stump but he was a long way forward, that's the fourth time Hogg has dismissed him in the series, Ganguly had his back foot on the crease and his front foot stretched well forward, however Hawkeye showed the ball hitting the top of off stump 156/4
View dismissal VVS Laxman c †Gilchrist b Lee 51 134 102 5 0 50.00
73.3 caught! Lee bowled a short ball, Laxman was looking to duck but the ball didn't bounce high enough, Laxman was helpless as the ball thudded into his gloves and lobbed up towards Gilchrist who took a simple catch, Laxman misjudged the bounce on that one and he should have pulled that instead of trying to duck 282/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni c Symonds b Johnson 16 75 64 1 0 25.00
89.4 caught in the deep! It was a short ball outside off stump, Dhoni goes for the cut and doesn't try to keep it down, he's hit that very hard but Ponting has placed Symonds at deep point and the ball flies straight to him, Australia have broken through within the first half hour, not a very good ball from Johnson but Dhoni picked out the one man on the boundary 336/6

131.3 and again! But this time Harbhajan tries to slog Symonds over midwicket and gets a top edge that swirls high in the air, Gilchrist runs towards square leg to take a simple catch, he now has equalled Mark Boucher for the most dismissals in Tests 466/8
