View dismissal SC Ganguly b Sohail Tanvir 39 79 46 4 1 84.78
14.1 The off stump goes for a walk. The ball landed on a length, outside off and came in, Ganguly pushed at it with an open face of the bat; the bat went outside the line, the ball cut in, thudded into the left thigh before hitting the off stump. Double joy for Tanvir as Pakistan swing right back 82/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c †Kamran Akmal b Sohail Tanvir 29 54 27 5 0 107.40
10.4 Edged and gone. Tanvir gets the breakthrough and it was a good catch from Akmal. Full and slanting away from Tendulkar who tried to flash it through cover but edges it low to the right of Akmal who dives acrobatically to take it. 68/1
View dismissal G Gambhir b Abdur Rehman 25 75 49 1 0 51.02
27.6 Gone! Sharp turn there! It landed outside the off stump, short in length, Gambhir shaped to cut but was surprised and cramped-up as the ball broke back in sharply and he just dabbed at it. The ball hit the bat and ran on to the stumps. 129/3
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Misbah-ul-Haq b Abdur Rehman 77 130 95 4 3 81.05
46.3 And he gets a wicket! It was flighted delivery, on the stumps, Yuvraj went for his sweep shot - down on the front knee- but top-edged it high in the air towards deep midwicket. Misbah positioned himself under it and managed to hold on as it swerved away from him. 260/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b Shoaib Akhtar 49 61 52 4 2 94.23
43.1 Cleans him up with a slower one! Full and dipping outside off stump, Dhoni was beaten by the change of pace, was caught at the crease as he tried to drive it through cover but instead, got a fatal inside-edge on to the leg stump. 229/4
View dismissal RV Uthappa b Umar Gul 19 21 17 1 1 111.76
47.2 he can go and see the new bat in the dressing room! Full in length, short of the blockhole, Uthappa missed to connect with his heave and was cleaned up. 265/6

View dismissal Salman Butt lbw b Harbhajan Singh 129 210 142 17 0 90.84
46.5 tries to reverse sweep, misses and has been given out lbw. It would have missed the off stump, though. It was full in length, on the off stump and Salman failed to connect. It would have turned well past the off stump. And that brings an end to a very fine innings from Salman. 246/9
View dismissal Shahid Afridi b Pathan 12 16 7 2 0 171.42
3.2 Afridi is cleaned up. Death by aggression. Typical. It landed a tad short of length, on the off stump and curved in slightly, Afridi took a step forward and tried to hit it out of the ground, perhaps back to Karachi, and missed it completely. The ball kept a touch low and hit the middle of the off stump and up went Pathan on a celebratory hop. 27/1
View dismissal Younis Khan b Singh 21 29 21 4 0 100.00
8.6 RP strikes from the round the stumps! Younis didn't play a stroke! It landed outside off stump and came in with the angle, Younis chose not to play at it, shouldered arms and to his horror, the ball kept coming in and crashed into the off stump. He was looking pretty good out there but RP changed the angle by going round and has found success. 72/2
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf run out (Yuvraj Singh) 16 42 24 2 0 66.66
17.4 from Khan, Yuvraj runs out Yousuf. Yousuf set off for a run after pushing to left of backward point where Yuvraj moved quickly, dived and fired in a throw at the non-striker's end. Zaheer was standing in front of the stumps, swooped low but couldn't collect properly but the ball deflected on to the stumps! 104/3
View dismissal Shoaib Malik* lbw b Yuvraj Singh 12 37 32 2 0 37.50
27.3 trapped in front! The change of bowling works. The lack of spin does him in. It was floated on the middle and off stump line and Malik went forward to defend, bat behind the pad. Perhaps, he though the ball would turn but this one went straight on and hit him in front of middle. Gone! 134/4
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq b Kartik 38 56 47 2 0 80.85
41.6 Kartik gets the breakthrough. After being hit for a four, he bounces back to get his man. It was delivered slow through the air, spun from outside leg stump, Misbah, who had again moved outside leg stump, tried to play it with the turn, to the off side but missed it completely. Crucial blow. 214/5
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Harbhajan Singh b Singh 2 7 2 0 0 100.00
43.4 Another one bites the dust. Akmal has driven down the throat of long-on. He walked down the track, RP dragged back the length and Akmal ended up whipping it straight to the fielder. Dhoni is delighted. 226/6
View dismissal Sohail Tanvir run out (Singh/†Dhoni) 0 2 0 0 0 -
43.6 Singh to Salman Butt, mix-up by the batsmen and RP Singh. It was driven wide of long-on and they took the first run. Salman turned for the second and saw Tanvir, who took a few steps initially, hesitate and turned back. Now Tanvir decides to complete the single and the throw comes in to RP who makes a mess as he lunges towards the stumps. Had he broken the stumps, Salman would have been out but the ball had rolled out of his grasp. NOw both batsmen were at the same end. Now Tanvir decides to run back but RP recovered to throw it to Dhoni who broke the stumps rather violently. 231/7
View dismissal Abdur Rehman b Singh 2 9 5 0 0 40.00
45.6 knocks him over. And then they were two. It landed full in length, Rehman missed to connect with his slog across the line and the ball crashed into the middle and leg stump. 244/8
View dismissal Shoaib Akhtar c sub (RG Sharma) b Khan 1 7 2 0 0 50.00
