View dismissal AJ Strauss c †Dhoni b Pathan 18 46 38 1 0 47.36
10.5 got'm! short of a good length delivery, width offered and Strauss goes after it, ball clips the bottom edge and goes behind, Dhoni dives across full-length to his left and gloves it inches away from the ground, fantastic take! 35/1
View dismissal AN Cook lbw b Pathan 17 55 38 2 0 44.73
12.5 beauty! Pathan gets one to come back into the left-hander, Cook plays across the line and is trapped plumb in front of the stumps, excellent bowling this from the left-hander. England two down 36/2
View dismissal IR Bell b Kumble 38 90 68 6 0 55.88
33.6 gone!! Kumble foxes Bell with a perfect googly! this one was tossed up, pitches outside off and turns into Bell, Bell doesnt pick the googly, shoulders arms and the ball just about dislodges the bail on top of the off stump 117/3

48.1 got'm! well disguised slower delivery, Pietersen drives on the up and the ball goes straight back to the bowler, Patel holds on well to a fairly easy chance and that's his first Test wicket, well bowled - England four down. 157/4

59.2 wow! flighted delivery, pitched on middle and leg and turning right across, Collingwood gets forward and presents a straight bat and thought he had it covered but the ball turns away just enough to beat the outside edge and the off stump is pegged back! that's a beauty! 180/5
View dismissal A Flintoff* c & b Patel 70 180 123 11 2 56.91
91.4 good length delivery, probably the slower one, Flintoff ends up driving it straight back down the track, head high catch, Patel fumbles on the first attempt but keeps his cool and takes it on the second attempt, crucial breakthrough this for India. 283/6

View dismissal LE Plunkett c †Dhoni b Patel 0 25 14 0 0 0.00
97.1 Patel strikes again! short and drifting down the leg side, Plunkett has a loose dab at it, looking to turn it away fine, ball goes through to the keeper and the appeal is upheld, not sure if he got a touch on it but the umpire was convinced, probably bit of glove involved 290/7
