Swann to Dravid, no run, hint of inward curl, Dravid leans forward to smother it.

40.4

Swann to Dravid, 1 run, short and on a Harbhajan line, ends up on Dravid's pads and he works it away for an easy single.

40.5

Swann to Tendulkar, no run, on a length to Sachin, who is reluctant to come forward and defends cautiously.

40.6

Swann to Tendulkar, no run, flights the last ball generously, Sachin presses forward to defend it solidly

India 151/2   GP Swann 1-0-1-0
42.1

Swann to Dravid, no run, short to Dravid, he stays back and works it to the leg side.

42.2

Swann to Dravid, no run, flighted generously on middle and leg, turning down the leg side, Dravid pads it away.

42.3

Swann to Dravid, no run, short ball, stays low as it comes in but Dravid adjusts well to defend.

42.4

Swann to Dravid, FOUR, supreme from Dravid, he pounces on what can't be defined as a short ball for normal batsman, but he is back in a flash and unfurls a wristy cut that whistles through for four.

42.5

Swann to Dravid, no run, that keeps low again, Dravid stays behind it and plays it to the leg side.

42.6

Swann to Dravid, no run, that's the one, breaking in from outside off, sharp as ever, Dravid is sucked into a drive off the back foot against the spin, but it keeps low. He manages to stab it away, nevertheless.

India 158/2   GP Swann 2-0-5-0
44.1

Swann to Dravid, no run, big appeal for a catch, will they review it? There's a discussion and they decide not to. In 2.1 overs, Swann has got more spin than Harbhajan did in two full days. This one breaks in menacingly from outside off, and bounces extra too. Dravid was playing back and looking to cut, but it came in so much to miss the bat and hit high on the thigh before going to slip. No edge.

44.2

Swann to Dravid, no run, this one keeps low too, Dravid will want to play forward more often. He forces it away this time.

44.3

Swann to Dravid, no run

44.4

Swann to Dravid, no run, lovely stuff from Swanny. Turn and drift, looking to burst it in through the gap, Dravid inside edges the drive onto the pad. No one at silly point to take it.

44.5

Swann to Dravid, no run, this one floats past the outside edge, Dravid is not comfortable at all. He fishes for this inside the line as it zips past. Exemplary spin bowling.

44.6

Swann to Dravid, no run, end of a top over, Dravid just about covers for the fizz as Swann gets another one to turn in. Defended down the track.

India 158/3   GP Swann 3-1-5-0
46.1

Swann to Laxman, 1 leg bye, nervy, nervy stuff! Laxman turns Swann uppishly with the turn through square leg. Not far from short leg.

46.2

Swann to Dravid, no run, full from Swann, Dravid leans forward this time and defends solidly

46.3

Swann to Dravid, no run

46.4

Swann to Dravid, no run, flighted on off, Dravid gets to the pitch and whip drives straight to midwicket.

46.5

Swann to Dravid, no run, similar shot, Dravid again is authoritatively forward to the pitch of it and whips to the man at silly mid on

46.6

Swann to Dravid, FOUR, much better footwork from Dravid this time, finds the ball to play back to, and latches onto it as soon as it comes. Short outside off and turning in, he hangs back and cuts well through point. Broad nearly slides to stop it, but the ball rolls over.

India 164/3   GP Swann 4-1-9-0
48.1

Swann to Dravid, no run, very short from Swann but it skidded through and Dravid couldn't time his pull shot

48.2

Swann to Dravid, no run, touch of spin and dip, nothing dramatic but Dravid watchful

48.3

Swann to Dravid, no run, the air on the ball draws Dravid out of his crease to whip to midwicket

48.4

Swann to Dravid, FOUR, had the practice the shot before but this time cleared the infield with a wonderful shot to bring up 50. Down the wicket just a fraction and flicking it past midwicket, all along the ground to the boundary. Takes him ahead of Ponting in the list of all-time run-scorers. Sits behind only Tendulkar

48.5

Swann to Dravid, no run, celebrates by blocking this carefully

48.6

Swann to Dravid, no run, spin here for Swann, and plenty of it from a shortish length. Dravid unconcerned in defence

India 168/3   GP Swann 5-1-13-0
50.1

Swann to Laxman, no run, Laxman is denied a boundary thanks to Cook's knee at short leg. Pull shot was slammed into him

50.2

Swann to Laxman, no run, quietly forward in defence

50.3

Swann to Laxman, no run, nicely bowled, just dipped on Laxman as he leant forward to whip to leg. Bobbled up off the pads to cover

50.4

Swann to Laxman, no run, this slides on with the arm, attacking the outside edge but Laxman is solid

50.5

Swann to Laxman, no run, pushed through a touch quicker, Laxman strokes to extra cover

50.6

Swann to Laxman, no run, very good maiden over from Swann. Looks a notch above the other spinners we've seen this game

India 169/3   GP Swann 6-2-13-0
52.1

Swann to Dravid, no run, Dravid is keen to play back to Swann and try and pierce the off side but this cramps him

52.2

Swann to Dravid, 1 run, easy for the batsman this time as Swann loses his line, Dravid rolls his wrists over the ball to send it to short fine leg

52.3

Swann to Laxman, no run, flatter from Swann but Laxman is untroubled

52.4

Swann to Laxman, no run, good delivery this one, slower to follow the quicker ball, spins a touch and finds the pads as Laxman plays forward

52.5

Swann to Laxman, FOUR, ah, lovely batting. Intricate placement, as Laxman just opened the face on a drive to beat the infield. Perfect timing made it into four

52.6

Swann to Laxman, 1 run, dragged down short from Swann, probably got stuck in the hand. Laxman wheels it to fine leg

India 176/3   GP Swann 7-2-19-0
54.1

Swann to Dravid, no run, Dravid on the cut again, toe-ends back to the bowler. Probably the bowler who got away with things though

54.2

Swann to Dravid, no run, once again Dravid is cutting, but again with the toe-end. Swann just a touch short the last couple of overs

54.3

Swann to Dravid, no run, this remains back of a perfect length but better. Dravid solid in defence

54.4

Swann to Dravid, no run, more air on this and it draws Dravid forward to defend

54.5

Swann to Dravid, no run, hint on inside edge as Dravid works this to midwicket

54.6

Swann to Dravid, no run, picture perfect defence to end the over. Swann's third maiden in eight overs, Harbhajan managed three in 35

India 178/3   GP Swann 8-3-19-0
56.1

Swann to Dravid, 1 run, worked into space for a single, could easily have been two but there you go. Raina the left-hander vs Swann now

56.2

Swann to Raina, OUT, can't review that! Swann loves a left-hander! Raina gets deep into his crease and misses an attempted work-to-leg, it just slipped on to him quicker than expected and struck him in front. Replays show it clipping leg stump, India in real bother now

SK Raina lbw b Swann 0 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

56.3
