  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss c Tendulkar b Khan 4 9 9 1 0 44.44
2.3 super delivery, right line and length and Strauss' footwork once again lets him down ... he is drawn half forward and a loose drive goes straight into Sachin Tendulkar's midriff at first slip 4/1
View dismissal AN Cook lbw b Ganguly 43 160 111 6 0 38.73
35.5 and Ganguly strikes, drifting one back into Cook who is hit on the pads and Taufel answers a beseeching appeal for leg before with a nod and a finger 109/5
View dismissal MP Vaughan* c Tendulkar b Khan 9 30 24 1 0 37.50
8.6 another pearl from Zaheer, Vaughan forced to play defensively at one drifting away from him, and a thick outside edge gives Tendulkar at first slip his second catch of the afternoon, lower down this time 24/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Singh 13 38 18 3 0 72.22
14.4 and he's got him - very well bowled by Singh. Full and straight, swinging back into Pietersen who tried to whip it to leg but was trapped in front - the ball would have taken out middle quite comfortably 47/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood b Sreesanth 28 73 44 4 0 63.63
32.2 well bowled! Swinging into Collingwood who came tentatively forward, without conviction, and inside-edged it onto his stumps 101/4
View dismissal IR Bell lbw b Khan 31 83 54 3 0 57.40
50.3 "that's out" we all yell, and right we are ... for once. A lovely full-length inswinger beats the bat, hits the pads and that's as out as out can be 157/7
View dismissal MJ Prior c Dravid b Kumble 11 45 31 2 0 35.48
45.6 Prior drives at a wide one and Dravid holds a straightforward catch to his left at first slip ... there was an inevitability about that dismissal, Prior never looked happy against Kumble 147/6
View dismissal CT Tremlett b Kumble 20 53 43 2 0 46.51
59.4 bowled him this time. Well, we didn't need Nostradamus for that. Kumble bowling right through the meagre defences, taking middle-and-leg with the one which slid on 186/8
RJ Sidebottom not out 18 56 48 2 0 37.50
View dismissal MS Panesar c Laxman b Khan 1 12 10 0 0 10.00
62.5 edged and gone! Good bowling from Khan, a hint of movement away from the lefthander and that's tidy at second slip, crouching into the catch 195/9
View dismissal JM Anderson b Kumble 1 10 4 0 0 25.00
65.3 dragged it shorter this time, Anderson tried to give himself room to cut, but the ball hurried through and beat him for pace. Kumble breaks into a beam 198/10

  India 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal KD Karthik c Cook b Panesar 77 188 136 11 0 56.61
45.1 and Panesar strikes with the first ball after tea! Flighted outside leg stump, Karthik went to work it through midwicket, got an edge on to his pad, it looped up slowly to short leg where Cook took a low catch low to his left 149/2
View dismissal W Jaffer c †Prior b Tremlett 62 175 123 7 0 50.40
42.1 and he's got him! Just short of a length, it climbs on Jaffer to take the glove, handing Prior a regulation catch. Done by the bounce there 147/1
View dismissal R Dravid* c Bell b Panesar 37 136 94 5 0 39.36
76.2 got him! Tossed up outside off, Dravid never got his foot to the pitch of the ball - poking at it without conviction, much as he has done against Panesar on occasion throughout his innings, and Bell takes an excellent diving catch to his left at short extra 246/3
View dismissal SR Tendulkar lbw b Collingwood 91 259 197 12 0 46.19
107.6 and he's got him - Tendulkar can't believe it. Just outside off stump, Tendulkar took a big stride down the pitch but offered no shot. A huge, lengthy appeal from Collingwood and the wicketkeeper - and Taufel, after a long Bucknor-like delay, raises his finger, though replays suggest it's a poor decision, the ball missing the off stump by several inches. And that's a shocking decision from Taufel; it didn't look out with the naked eye and Hawk-Eye confirms it would have passed by his off stump comfortably. Oh dear. 342/4
View dismissal SC Ganguly c †Prior b Anderson 79 233 156 10 1 50.64
131.5 strangled down the leg side, a fairly ordinary delivery, Ganguly swishes, Prior takes a tumbling catch and Taufel gives him out. Oh dear, that looked a bit iffy as well 409/5
View dismissal VVS Laxman c †Prior b Tremlett 54 183 152 7 0 35.52
153.3 short and very wide, Laxman goes for the cut and got a thin top edge through to Prior who took a regulation catch 464/7
View dismissal MS Dhoni c †Prior b Sidebottom 5 11 6 1 0 83.33
134.2 at least this one is not controversial, Dhoni shapes to hit across the line and gets a thick and audible outside edge to Prior and he's on his way even before the umpire's finger goes up 414/6
View dismissal A Kumble c †Prior b Tremlett 30 83 65 6 0 46.15
155.3 not discernible footwork, Kumble feels for the ball and Prior holds a big edge at stomach height with a pace to his right 473/8
Z Khan not out 10 26 12 2 0 83.33
View dismissal RP Singh lbw b Panesar 0 4 4 0 0 0.00
156.2 Singh misses with a forward defensive poke, the ball hits him on the front leg but an easy decision for Ian Howell, hitting near the top of middle according to Hawk-Eye 474/9
View dismissal S Sreesanth lbw b Panesar 2 11 9 0 0 22.22
158.5 Sreesanth decides to pad away a ball but he doesn't even get his front leg out of the crease and as he kicks the ball he spins away as if not wanting to look at the umpire ... and understandably as Howell's finger is up 481/10

View dismissal AJ Strauss c †Dhoni b Khan 55 198 133 6 0 41.35
44.2 and Khan strikes with his second ball after lunch! A wider delivery, down off, and Strauss fished with a poor stroke away from his body, Dhoni taking a simple catch, low down 130/2
View dismissal AN Cook lbw b Khan 23 84 50 1 0 46.00
18.2 and he's got him - there's the breakthrough for India. It was full and straight, swinging back into Cook a touch who misread the line and was rapped dead in front 49/1
View dismissal MP Vaughan* b Khan 124 280 193 18 0 64.24
82.4 the breakthrough and it came out of nothing. Vaughan shaped to flick into the leg side, he got an edge onto his thigh pad and that deflected the ball agonisingly slowly into his stumps. He stood for a moment is disbelief before heading off to a standing ovation. 287/4
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Singh 19 47 35 2 0 54.28
54.5 oh, a misjudgement from Pietersen who leaves it, but that was a beautiful ball from Singh, pitching it very wide outside off. It came back a very long way and would have hit off-and-middle. Plumb; an easy decision for Taufel and a blow for England 175/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Karthik b Khan 63 192 133 7 0 47.36
96.2 but this time he was really gone - going for the drive, a thick outside edge flies to first slip for a very good catch by Karthik 323/7
View dismissal IR Bell lbw b Khan 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
82.6 and that's another, a super delivery angled in from wide of the crease, Bell back on his stumps misses the ball and it's an easy decision. 287/5
View dismissal MJ Prior b Singh 7 40 24 1 0 29.16
90.5 what a peach ... a gem, swinging into Prior, his feet went nowhere and he was cleaned up between bat and pad, the middle stump sent drunkenly spinning on its way 304/6
View dismissal CT Tremlett c Singh b Kumble 5 35 18 1 0 27.77
97.3 lifted to mid-on for a juggling catch by Singh, who knocks it up, then again and again... the last one for effect 329/8
