View dismissal JH Kallis c Suman b Singh 5 7 0 0 71.42
1.6 soft dismissal, Kallis will say; we had a fielder there, Deccan will say. a leg-stump half-volley, swinging in, Kallis flicks it, thinks it's four, and then he sees T Suman at short square leg take an easy catch. No. 20 for RP 7/1
MK Pandey not out 114 73 10 4 156.16
View dismissal RE van der Merwe st †Gilchrist b Symonds 23 18 3 1 127.77
9.2 smart stumping from Gilchrist. van der Merwe looks for the slog again, is beaten by the extra bounce, the momentum into the shot carries his front foot outside, and Gilchrist is alert and removes the bails before he can come back in. An amusing little innings 62/2
View dismissal R Dravid c Gibbs b Ojha 6 9 0 0 66.66
14.2 caught in tow minds, is Dravid, this one is flighted, Dravid clears his leg, wants to slog-sweep, but at the last moment goes straight, gets a top-edge, and it is skied to long-off 107/3
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Singh b Ojha 1 4 0 0 25.00
16.6 RP takes a catch this time, Taylor tries his slog-sweep, he has been tied down all over, and he gets a top edge towards deep midwicket, where RP doesn't make a mistake 134/4

View dismissal AC Gilchrist*† c van der Merwe b Akhil 15 18 2 0 83.33
6.5 and Gilchrist is gone, on the pull shot - hard to believe as it is, but once again the extra bounce troubles Gilchrist, who gets a top edge that lobs towards deep backward square, where van der Merwe takes a safe running catch 68/1
View dismissal HH Gibbs c Pandey b Akhil 60 43 3 4 139.53
14.1 and he gets a wicket in the first over of his spell again, Gibbs looks to pull off the front foot, doesn't connect, gets one hand off, and top-edges it into the on side, where Pandey, running in from deep backward square leg, holds on to it 116/3
View dismissal TL Suman c van der Merwe b Kumble 12 12 1 0 100.00
10.6 soft dismissal, short ball, hit straight to van der Merwe at cover, he was looking to blast the leather of the ball, and was hurried a bit too by the skid 91/2
View dismissal A Symonds b van der Merwe 18 15 1 1 120.00
15.1 and that's a big big wicket that he has got, pitched full, arm ball, Symonds goes for the slog-sweep, plays all over it and the off stump goes out of the ground 119/4
View dismissal RG Sharma c Kohli b Kumble 12 12 1 0 100.00
18.1 Kohli is cooler than Sharma. Low fulltoss from Kumble, Sharma tries to clear long-on, doesn't middle, Kohli nonchalantly stations himself at the boundary, and takes it over his head. Doesn't move, doesn't emote. Like it's everyday business 138/6
View dismissal Y Venugopal Rao run out (†Boucher/Kumar) 8 9 0 0 88.88
17.5 from Kumar, beats Rao outside off, Sharma wants the strike, Rao has to run for the bye, and Boucher underarms it perfectly to Kumar who finds Rao short 137/5
