View dismissal SC Ganguly c †Boucher b Nel 13 32 22 1 0 59.09
7.2 edged and gone! Nel strikes with just his second delivery, getting Ganguly to reach across and drive, with no footwork again, an average good-length delivery into the gloves of Boucher behind the stumps 24/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar run out (van Wyk/†Boucher) 99 199 143 12 0 69.23
45.3 from Nel, would you believe?? Tendulkar gets run out on 99! The ball was back of a length, he dabs if off the back foot through cover-point, van Wyk runs in from sweeper cover, collects it and fires in a great throw to Boucher, and Tendulkar, on 99, turns and runs for a mad second and is caught just short of his crease 211/4
View dismissal G Gambhir c Kallis b Nel 0 14 7 0 0 0.00
11.1 edged and thats a smart catch at second slip! Gambhir, like Ganguly, doesnt move his feet and reaches away from the body to a fullish delivery and this time Kallis holds onto a good catch, moving to his left, and it was travelling at some speed 36/2
View dismissal R Dravid* b Nel 74 135 93 6 0 79.56
43.2 yorker does the trick! Dravid stands rooted, in that same odd groove that engulfed him all of last over, and flashes the bat at it, losing one hand off it, and leg stump goes for a walk, Nel loves it 194/3
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Kallis b Hall 13 15 12 1 0 108.33
46.1 full outside off stump, Yuvraj stands rooted and swings across the line, finding Kallis at mid-on, who takes a simple catch 213/5
View dismissal KD Karthik b Hall 19 13 10 2 1 190.00
48.3 cleaned up! Karthik makes room and looks to drill this through the off side, but the balls not on for that shot, too full, and it hits the stumps 234/6
View dismissal RG Sharma b Kallis 8 13 9 0 0 88.88
49.2 looking to clear midwicket, Sharma swings across the line, the bat closes in his hands and he fails to make contact, the ball knocking back leg stump 240/7
PP Chawla not out 2 5 2 0 0 100.00
View dismissal RR Powar c de Villiers b Kallis 1 2 3 0 0 33.33
49.6 all over! Powar stands there and chips it into the hands of de Villiers moving around from cover, almost colliding with Philander, coming in from mid-off, smiles between the two and Kallis gets his second with the final ball 242/8

View dismissal AB de Villiers c †Karthik b Singh 24 56 37 3 0 64.86
12.5 edged and taken this time! RP bowls a pretty ordinary delivery, short and moving away but de Villiers stands his ground and chases it, getting a thick edge that Karthik, diving full stretch to his right, holds on to in front of Tendulkar 56/1
View dismissal MN van Wyk c Sharma b Chawla 44 88 55 6 0 80.00
19.5 got 'em! Chawla tosses it up, getting it to dip and spin, and van Wyk is beaten by the turn as he looks to just turn it fine, the leading edge lobs up to cover where Sharma holds an easy catch 99/2
JH Kallis* not out 91 142 116 6 0 78.44
View dismissal HH Gibbs b Chawla 5 6 7 1 0 71.42
21.1 bowled 'em neck and crop! Chawla you beauty! Tosses up a leg break this time, which pitches on the stumps and doesnt spin, but sneaks through the big gap between bad and pad to clip off stump,Gibbs was clueless 107/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c Tendulkar b Powar 11 11 15 2 0 73.33
24.5 and he goes sweeping! Powar bravely tosses it up on leg stump again, and Duminy cant resist sweeping with the spin, failing to keep it low and Tendulkar gobbles it up at deep midwicket 124/4
View dismissal MV Boucher lbw b Khan 23 30 30 1 0 76.66
34.3 and the bowling change works, as Zaheer lands one short of a length marginally outside leg stump, the ball catches Boucher hopping back in the crease, but to the naked eye it seemed that ball was carrying over the stumps 165/5
View dismissal AJ Hall c Dravid b Chawla 16 19 15 2 0 106.66
39.4 got 'em! That's a crucial breakthrough for India. Full again and Hall drives straight to short cover. Dravid had positioned himself there just before that, going from first slip, and it goes straight to him. He juggles but takes in on the second try. Hall departs and India are cock-a-hoop. Piyush strikes another big blow. And is he loving it! 190/6
