1.6 full and straight, Ganguly plays and misses, rapped on the pads in front of the stumps, loud shout for lbw, given, that looked pretty out too depite Ganguly's obvious show of dissent 5/1

33.3 Vettori to Harbhajan Singh, full and on the off, flatter as well, guided to point, Sodhi charges out to the middle of the pitch, turns and sees his quite a way outside the crease, a good return from the slose in fielder puts paid to Sodhi, another run out 114/8

31.4 from Vettori, full and on the off, Dighe defends toqwards point and sets off for a non existent single, when he reaches about the midway of the pitch he realises his folly and turns back - too late, the bails are off 112/7

36.1 well flighted, delightfully pitched up and on the stumps, Harbhajan thinks that is so easy to play, a Harris special that, right through the gate, kissing the top of the middle stump, and another one bites the dust 122/9
