View dismissal W Jaffer lbw b Yasir Arafat 17 90 62 3 0 27.41
18.3 full and on the off, sharp swing in for Arafat, Jaffer shoulders arms to the wrong ball and is dead in the water. No doubt at all about that one and Jaffer goes. That was a serious error in judgment from a batsman in prime form 51/3
View dismissal G Gambhir c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Sami 5 40 19 1 0 26.31
7.4 Gone! short of a good length and outside the off stump, Gambhir feels for that one outside the off stump and only manages an edge as the ball moves away a fraction. The edge carries - that's a first in this series - and Kamran Akmal dives to his left and takes a good catch 8/1
View dismissal R Dravid c Misbah-ul-Haq b Yasir Arafat 19 45 28 3 0 67.85
16.2 short of a length and outside the off, Dravid's eyes light up and he goes for the cut. The ball bounces a touch extra and the ball goes off a thick edge to Misbah at first slip who makes no mistake 44/2
View dismissal SC Ganguly b Danish Kaneria 239 518 361 30 2 66.20
144.2 And there's the moment. A loopy ball outside the off stump, Ganguly looks to sweep and misses. The ball goes back onto the stumps and Ganguly's amazing run comes to an end. It's been an innings of sheer grit and handsome strokeplay. Even Pakistan's players applaud Ganguly off the field as he walks off for 239, his highest ever score in Test cricket. 605/7
View dismissal VVS Laxman b Yasir Arafat 5 19 10 1 0 50.00
22.2 just short of a good length and on the off, this one keeps a bit low, Laxman defends without quite bending low and the ball goes off the toe of the bat back onto the stumps. That is a huge wicket for Arafat and Pakistan just before lunch 61/4
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Faisal Iqbal b Mohammad Sami 169 250 203 28 1 83.25
87.4 Gone! against the run of play a wicket falls in the dying moments of the day. Yuvraj Singh looks to work the ball to the leg side, closes the face of the bat early. The ball spears off the leading edge and goes up in the air to the gully region. Faisal Iqbal takes the catch and an absolutely fabulous innings comes to an end. Loud applause for Yuvraj as he trudges off the ground 361/5
View dismissal KD Karthik c †Kamran Akmal b Yasir Arafat 24 90 70 3 0 34.28
107.4 Gone! just short of a good length, outside the off, a hint of away movement, Karthik plays at the ball without quite moving his feet, the outside edge goes straight to Kamran Akmal who takes a simple catch 427/6
View dismissal IK Pathan c †Kamran Akmal b Danish Kaneria 102 173 133 10 4 76.69

View dismissal Salman Butt c †Karthik b Ganguly 68 205 149 13 0 45.63
46.2 Would you believe it? Sourav Chandidas Ganguly has got the breakthrough. What a match he is having. It was on a length, around the off stump and moved away and Salman was lured into a poke. Fatal. 149/2
View dismissal Yasir Hameed lbw b Kumble 19 78 48 4 0 39.58
16.3 Got him! This time Kumble gets it on target. full, straight, quick, low, Hameed plants his foot in front of the stumps and his bat is well outside the line. The ball crashes into the pad and then hits bat. Loud shout and it's enough to convince Simon Taufel 59/1
View dismissal Younis Khan* b Harbhajan Singh 80 218 156 12 0 51.28
69.1 And that's the breakthrough! Younis Khan tries the reverse-sweep and can't make contact, the ball pitches on leg and angles in, getting past the bat and rattling the stumps. Too cute an attempt by Younis when he was batting so well. Harbhajan is mobbed by the rest. 221/3
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf c Yuvraj Singh b Pathan 24 102 76 3 0 31.57
70.6 Another! Yousuf surely losing his concentration there, going after a really wide one, slashing it straight to Yuvraj Singh at point. He's the best fielder in the park and doesn't make a mistake with such dollies. Yousuf can't believe it. That was surely a lapse in concentration there. 227/4
Misbah-ul-Haq not out 133 407 322 17 0 41.30
View dismissal Faisal Iqbal c Gambhir b Sharma 22 90 64 1 0 34.37
96.1 Ishant Sharma strikes! this one rears off a good length and Faisal has some trouble adjusting to the extra bounce. The ball bobs up to the on side and there's a fielder close to the bat on the leg side just waiting to snap up the catch 288/5
View dismissal Kamran Akmal st †Karthik b Harbhajan Singh 65 173 114 12 0 57.01
135.2 neat piece of work from Karthik! Better stuff from Harbhajan, tempting him to go for a booming drive outside off stump, lovely flight on that one, outside off stump, like an offspinner should be bowling, Akmal does so and misses, falling forward in the attempt, Karthik collects and whips off the bails in a flash, the question goes upstairs but thats pretty plain to see Akmal's back leg wasn't inside! 432/6
View dismissal Yasir Arafat b Sharma 44 98 70 7 0 62.85
162.4 and then, just like that, comes a wicket! Pitches on a length and comes back into sneak through Arafat, playing from the crease and unsure of whether to go forward or back, and rattles middle and off after taking a thick inside-edge... Ishant really deserved that wicket, he's bowled well all Test, though his numbers don't reveal it 525/7
View dismissal Mohammad Sami b Sharma 1 12 11 0 0 9.09
164.4 cleaned him up! Ishant strikes with a lovely yorker - something we've not seen all match - from wide of the crease which totally surprises Sami, playing away from his body, and the stumps are splattered ... two quick wickets for the young Delhi bowler 527/8

166.2 gone! Ishant steams in and bowls it short, it stays low, on about the knee roll, surprising Shoaib and he just hops and lobs a simple catch to short leg 529/9
View dismissal Danish Kaneria c & b Sharma 4 9 5 1 0 80.00
168.1 all over, as Ishant Sharma gets five! Bowls a short ball, Kaneria is in a mess as he tries to ride the bounce and play a pull, the ball takes the bat high and balloons up for the bowler to continue in his follow-through and take it himself 537/10

6.4 bowled 'em! Shoaib strikes with a fuller, slower ball, pitching and beating the sizable gap between bat and pad to flick the top of off stump! Shoaib is cock-a-hoop as he sets off in celebration! 17/1
View dismissal R Dravid lbw b Danish Kaneria 42 211 121 6 0 34.71
51.4 Googly from round the stumps, it pitches on the middle stump and straightens nicely, Dravid has pushed his front foot well down the pitch but fails to get outside the line or put bat to ball. There is a loud shout for lbw and Simon Taufel gives the decision in favour of the bowler. Good shout that and you have to think it was a correct decision even if Dravid was forward 178/3
View dismissal SC Ganguly c Faisal Iqbal b Mohammad Sami 91 185 134 12 1 67.91
52.1 Gone! Oh that is disappointing for Sourav Ganguly. He's played a blinder in the first innings and the second but the 200 and 100 combination just wasn't to be. A shortish ball outside the off stump from Sami and Ganguly flashes hard. The ball goes straight to gully and the catch is taken. Ganguly goes on 91 but he richly deserved a century here. 178/4
VVS Laxman retired hurt 14 55 27 2 0 51.85
62.3 from Shoaib Akhtar, short one banged in, this one does not bounce much at all, Laxman ducks into the ball, it was a quick one at 135 kmh and crashes into the elbow. It hits the corner of the elbow, the point of the bone that hurts the most. This looks really nasty as Laxman drops the bat immediately and walks away from the stumps. 225/5
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Sami 2 14 12 0 0 16.66
54.6 fullish and outside the off, Yuvraj plays a forcing shot outside the off, the bat just nicks the boot and there's a sound. The appeal is spontaneous and Rudi Koertzen gives it. Can't blame the umpire too much, the ball was very close to the bat and this is not the first time Yuvraj has done this in this innings. Bad luck to the batsman anyhow. 184/5
View dismissal KD Karthik c †Kamran Akmal b Yasir Arafat 52 96 67 8 1 77.61
