Anderson to Jaffer, OUT, width outside off, short-of-a-length and that was a deliberate strategy to entice Jaffer to upper cut off the back-foot straight to Pietersen at third man

W Jaffer c Pietersen b Anderson 35 (69m 47b 6x4 1x6) SR: 74.46

India 62/1   KD Karthik 24* (43b 3x4)   JM Anderson 4.4-1-27-1

Anderson to Dravid, OUT, full, enough late swing to beat Dravid who was falling over as he shaped to clip the ball through midwicket and played inside it

R Dravid b Anderson 55 (131m 101b 8x4 0x6) SR: 54.45

India 189/2   KD Karthik 87* (144b 9x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 11.1-2-53-2

Sidebottom to Karthik, OUT, wide and short of a length, Karthik plays a loose drive with no footwork and Prior does the rest, holding a thin but audible nick. Karthik stands motionless for a second or two before slowly heading off to a standing ovation

KD Karthik c †Prior b Sidebottom 91 (216m 151b 10x4 1x6) SR: 60.26

India 199/3   SR Tendulkar 2* (11b)   RJ Sidebottom 14.1-3-51-1

Collingwood to Ganguly, OUT, well, the part-time bowler has made the breakthrough. The ball again nips back at Ganguly who is taken on the pad and a loud appeal is upheld by Ian Howell...but, oh dear, the replays show a big inside edge and Ganguly is unlucky. Collingwood gets his second scalp of the series, and both have owed plenty to the umpires

SC Ganguly lbw b Collingwood 37 (128m 77b 4x4 1x6) SR: 48.05

India 276/4   SR Tendulkar 34* (107b 3x4)   PD Collingwood 1.5-1-2-1

Tremlett to Laxman, OUT, Prior's caught it, Tremlett bowled it short of a length outside the off stump and got it to seam away from Laxman who stood on the back foot and tried to hit it through the off side, he got a thick edge on that and Prior took the easiest of catches

VVS Laxman c †Prior b Tremlett 51 (101m 79b 8x4 0x6) SR: 64.55

India 354/5   SR Tendulkar 55* (158b 6x4)   CT Tremlett 25.2-4-66-1

Anderson to Tendulkar, OUT, well, well, Anderson makes the breakthrough just as Tendulkar was looking set to finally reach three figures in this series...outside off stump and Tendulkar pushes at it sending a regulation catch to Strauss at first slip who gobbles it well...Tendulkar leaves to standing ovation, he might get one more innings but who knows

SR Tendulkar c Strauss b Anderson 82 (298m 192b 11x4 0x6) SR: 42.70

India 417/6   MS Dhoni 26* (37b 4x4)   JM Anderson 28-5-123-3

Pietersen to Dhoni, OUT, doesn't work this time and he holes out to Cook at deep square. He couldn't resist standing up and trying to deliver a scoop but doesn't get enough under it, Cook taking a good catch, low

MS Dhoni c Cook b Pietersen 92 (120m 81b 9x4 4x6) SR: 113.58

India 508/7   A Kumble 25* (63b 5x4)   KP Pietersen 0.5-0-12-1

Panesar to Khan, OUT, flighted delivery outside off stump, Zaheer moves his front leg out of the way and tries to slog it down the ground, he gets a top edge that flies high in the air and straight to Anderson at mid-off who takes an easy catch

Z Khan c Anderson b Panesar 11 (75m 52b 1x4 0x6) SR: 21.15

India 570/8   A Kumble 67* (129b 11x4)   MS Panesar 35.3-5-129-1

Anderson to Singh, OUT, excellent reflexes from Anderson, good length delivery on off stump, RP Singh doesn't move his feet and tries to smash it past Anderson who sticks out his left hand on his follow through and clutches on to a ball that is travelling at some speed

RP Singh c & b Anderson 11 (23m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 52.38

India 591/9   A Kumble 76* (145b 12x4)   JM Anderson 37.4-5-164-4

Panesar to Sreesanth, OUT, down the track and swipes up towards gully where Vaughan takes a resigned catch, palms upwards. Panesar tries to give Sreesanth a stare, which doesn't work on a number of counts

S Sreesanth c Vaughan b Panesar 35 (49m 32b 6x4 1x6) SR: 109.37

India 664/10   A Kumble 110* (193b 16x4 1x6)   MS Panesar 45-5-159-2
