  Indians 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal KD Karthik c †Ambrose b Broad 5 26 12 1 0 41.66
4.5 Broad takes out Karthik and Indians are in complete disarray. Karthik doesn't look too pleased with the decision. It landed on a length, on the off and middle and shaped away. Karthik was sucked in to the forward prod and was turned inside-out by the away movement. It must have been a very thin nick . There was a certainly a sound. Was it the ball on wood or bat on pad? 14 for 3. Enter Sourav Ganguly. 14/3
View dismissal W Jaffer lbw b Onions 1 6 7 0 0 14.28
1.2 Jaffer's woes continues. Caught in the front. It landed on a length, on the off and middle and moved in. Jaffer's left leg came across - again he gave the impression of being late in leaning forward - and before the bat could come around the front pad, the ball had thudded in to the pad. In front of the middle and leg. Gone. Wonder what's happening in Gambhir's household in Delhi. 2/1
View dismissal VVS Laxman c †Ambrose b Onions 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
1.5 2 for 2! Onions is frying the Indians. It landed back of length, on the middle line, Laxman leant forward to defend but the ball straightened and he ended up pushing his bat inside the line. The ball clipped the outside edge and that was that. Laxman back in the hutch. Enter Sachin Tendulkar. 2/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar* c Shah b Onions 171 313 236 23 1 72.45
75.5 Tendulkar falls after an imperious knock. It was a short of length, outside off and he again tried to slog it on the up over mid off but ends up sending it straight to the fielder. What a gem of a knock this has been. Majestic, classy, and aggressive. 304/6
View dismissal SC Ganguly c & b Tremlett 14 59 44 2 0 31.81
18.2 Ganguly falls to the pull shot. Yet again. Banged in short and it was angling away outside the off stump but Ganguly chose to fetch it from there and went for a pull. It ballooned straight up for Tremlett to take an easy catch. 65/4
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Strauss b Broad 59 156 108 8 0 54.62
56.6 Yuvraj's patience runs out. Broad went wide of the crease and hurled a sucker ball - full and well outside the off stump. Yuvraj went for a drive and edged it straight to first and the only slip. He had been so patient so far, leaving quite a few deliveries outside off stump but he is gone now. 205/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni b Broad 76 131 84 7 2 90.47
86.4 chopped it on and that's a five-for for young Chris! outside off, Dhoni stays rooted to the crease and tries another swat past the bowler, gets a thick inside edge onto his stumps, the off stump goes back a couple of yards 383/10
View dismissal RR Powar b Bopara 4 12 11 1 0 36.36
78.5 cleaned up. Done in by the slower one. It landed outside the off stump and broke back in, Powar leant forward and was beaten by the change of pace and then, by the movement it. He just stabbed at it in desperation and the ball threaded the bat and pad gap to knock back the middle 317/7
View dismissal Z Khan c †Ambrose b Broad 28 24 23 5 1 121.73
84.4 short of a good length outside off, Zaheer slashes at it too early, ends up getting a thick edge through to Ambrose. Not a particularly good delivery but Broad will take it. Zaheer just lost his concentration 361/8
View dismissal S Sreesanth c Shah b Broad 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
84.6 short and cutting in after pitching, Sreesanth shapes to defend on the backfoot, opens the face of the bat in the lastr second and the ball gets the outside edge through to Shah at third slip 361/9
