View dismissal G Gambhir c Trott b Panesar 60 169 124 12 0 48.38
41.1 55.8 mph, got him, Gambhir is gone! Panesar has another, Trott pouching a sharp catch at slip. Still no hundred for Gambhir then ... he tried to cut a ball that was perhaps just a touch too close, Panesar got a bit of extra bounce and it yawned off the edge, flew quickly but Trott made no mistake 117/3
View dismissal V Sehwag run out (Finn/†Prior) 23 45 26 3 0 88.46
10.1 from Anderson, Sehwag unfurls those wrists. Oh my word. What has Gambhir done here? Run-outs and Eden. Always a story. This is whipped away to deep midwicket. Patel runs from deep square, puts the dive in, keeps the ball in. Finn chases with Patel to support him, and id there to collect the ball and throws it, but Gambhir doesn't want the third. He is ball-watching, Sehwag is almost a handshake away when he realises, he better run back to save his wicket. The throw, though, is accurate, and Sehwag is gone. Gambhir stands there emotionless. Sehwag trudges back. Early Christmas gift for England. Replays show Gambhir saying "no, no, no", but this was always three 47/1
View dismissal CA Pujara b Panesar 16 58 48 2 0 33.33
25.4 56.3 mph, Monty, you beauty. Another ripper. On a flat wicket, against a batsman in form. He has done him in with an arm ball. That's superb bowling. People need to wake up to the new Monty. He is not as one-dimensional as he is made out to be. He has bowled three full and slow deliveries, drawing Pujara forward, before he bowls this arm ball, which almost seams back in, past the inside edge, and into the stumps. And what a jig he breaks into. Whistling, dancing, almost a Bhangra. Got to love Monty 88/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c †Prior b Anderson 76 202 155 13 0 49.03
74.1 83.7 mph, edged and what a catch! What a take down low with one hand and straight after drinks Tendulkar falls. It was a length ball that just shaped away from off stump, Tendulkar only came half-forward and got a healthy edge which flew down low to Prior's right, he got down quickly and claimed a beauty 230/6
View dismissal V Kohli c Swann b Anderson 6 31 24 1 0 25.00
48.4 85.2 mph, edged and gone, Anderson has snaffled Kohli, reward for a probing spell! The ball flew low off the edge, not dissimilar to the Tendulkar chance in Anderson's previous over, but this time Swann got his fingers just underneath it, an excellent catch 136/4
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Cook b Swann 32 77 54 4 1 59.25
68.3 53.2 mph, chipped into the off side and straight to Cook at short extra-cover! Yuvraj has given it away! That was a lazy shot, no foot movement and just punched aerially into the covers where Cook, falling forward, clasped the ball safely to his chest - a breakthrough from nothing for England, and it ends a 79-run partnership 215/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Swann b Finn 52 158 114 5 2 45.61
104.6 87.7 mph, lovely catch by Swann, and a lovely delivery by Finn. England had painted themselves into a corner where they needed something extraordinary to get this wicket, and they have done that extraordinary bit. Short of a length, rears up, follows Dhoni who is trying to sway away. The ball hits the bat handle in front of his throat, and the top edge flies where gully would be. Swann, though, runs from wide slip, and takes a diving catch 316/10
View dismissal R Ashwin b Anderson 21 59 43 2 0 48.83
88.3 88.2 mph, through him and bowled! Ashwin loses middle and off stumps, late on the delivery that shaped back a little into the pads. Trying to play from the crease again, Ashwin plopped forward and the new ball skidded onto him and hurried through his defence, he was playing a little across it 268/7
View dismissal Z Khan lbw b Panesar 6 23 21 1 0 28.57
93.6 55.9 mph, Monty can play the dhol again. On a length, middle and off, Zaheer defends for the turn, the ball goes on with the angle, beats the inside edge, hits him smack in front of middle, and shin high. Easy decision for Dharmasena 292/8
View dismissal I Sharma b Panesar 0 6 3 0 0 0.00
95.3 56.7 mph, Panesar gets four. That's 15 in three innings. An uncharacteristic shot from Sharma. Huge back lift, coming down in slow motion, and Panesar squeezes in a full and fast delivery at 93.4ks under his bat. I am really surprised Sharma played such an irresponsible shot. He is usually the man to block, block and block 296/9

View dismissal AN Cook* run out (Kohli) 190 492 377 23 2 50.39
126.5 Khan to Pietersen, Has Cook been run out backing up? I think he has, you know. Kohli is sprinting around in delight, having scored a direct hit at the non-striker's end ... Pietersen turned the ball square on the leg side and, as the throw came in, Cook was about to ground his bat - then, inexplicably, he tried to get out of the way of the ball having not got back in. It sailed through the gap he had politely created and shattered the stumps and, after a bit of conferring to determine whether he was taking evasive action to avoid being hurt, it's decided he wasn't and has to go. What a way to be dismissed ten short of a double-hundred! 359/3
View dismissal NRD Compton lbw b Ojha 57 214 137 6 1 41.60
52.6 52.1 mph, but he's gone now, attempting a paddle sweep, missed, it looked in line and given out lbw but not after Rod Tucker has shaken his head! Bizarre but Compton's gone. No idea what the umpire was doing but if Compton didn't glove the attempted sweep he was caught bang in line, not sure whether glove was involved but India have the breakthrough 165/1
View dismissal IJL Trott c †Dhoni b Ojha 87 243 223 10 0 39.01
119.2 aha, some turn and got him caught behind. Trott pressing forward to a ball wide of off stump, it turned and took a decent outside edge which Dhoni held well. India have a breakthrough. Could Trott have left that? Probably 338/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Ashwin 54 112 85 9 1 63.52
143.2 goes again, this is straighter, misses and given out lbw. Looked pretty straight and Ashwin finally strikes. Sweeping those straight balls, you have to hit them and Pietersen simply didn't, was caught in line with middle stump and that almost certainly wasn't doing too much to go down leg 420/5
View dismissal IR Bell c †Dhoni b Sharma 5 47 23 0 0 21.73
136.5 lazy drive, edged and gone taken low down by Dhoni. Bell simply didn't bother to move his feet and got a bottom edge trying to play through the covers. The ball didn't appear to do anything from a foot outside off stump but Sharma has been gifted a success by Bell's laziness 395/4
View dismissal SR Patel c Sehwag b Ojha 33 62 47 5 0 70.21
149.6 got him, another for Ojha, after some juggling at slip! Samit perishes, having done all the hard work of getting in, and it's to a short, wide delivery that he falls, trying to shovel through backward point and getting a thick edge, it went quickly to Sehwag's right but he got a hand to it, patted it back up in the air over his head, then safely pouched it at the second attempt 453/6
View dismissal MJ Prior c †Dhoni b Khan 41 89 49 6 1 83.67
164.2 another wicket for India. Dhoni's 200th Test catch. This is interesting. Short ball, angling in, Prior wants to cut it, he cuts, but all he manages is a nice little edge through to the right of Dhoni, who makes no mistake 510/8
View dismissal GP Swann c Sehwag b Ojha 21 51 46 3 0 45.65
163.2 Ojha takes a wicket second ball of the day. Flighted outside off, Swann drives at it, the ball turns, takes the edge, and Sehwag - fielding at slip for spinners but not for quicks - takes an easy catch 510/7

View dismissal JM Anderson c Sehwag b Ashwin 9 15 9 1 0 100.00
167.2 turn, bounce, and a very good low catch by Sehwag. Short of a driving length, Anderson doesn't come forward, the ball turns appreciably, hits the edge, and Sehwag takes a low catch to his right. All bowlers have takes a wicket off their second ball of the day today 523/9
View dismissal MS Panesar lbw b Ashwin 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
167.3 Ashwin will be on a hat-trick if England are required to bat again. Panesar has been suitably angered before he comes to bowl. He has been given out lbw off a thick inside edge. Full ball, middle and off, hits the edge, then the pad, but Dharmasena raises his finger 523/10

30.4 86.6 mph, full and driven at, edged and caught behind and now Gambhir is out. A loose drive and Prior takes a flying catch going to his left, a smart take around chest height. Lazy drive from Gambhir to a very full ball well outside off stump 103/3
View dismissal V Sehwag b Swann 49 83 57 7 0 85.96
21.1 53.5 mph, floated up just outside off, turn in and bowled him first ball! Turn through the gate and Sehwag has gone. What a start to the afternoon for England. A somewhat lazy prod forward from Sehwag, it didn't turn a huge amount but enough to beat the inside edge and onto the top of off stump 86/1
View dismissal CA Pujara run out (Bell) 8 31 22 2 0 36.36
28.6 Finn to Gambhir, dabbed into the leg side and they take a quick single, in comes Bell, direct hit and gone! Oh dear oh dear oh dear, Gautam Gambhir what are you doing! Error that led to the run out of Sehwag in the first innings and now he's called through the No. 3 with 400+ runs in the series and left him struggling too. Brilliant work from Bell though, on the scene like a flash at midwicket and a super throw, Pujara's dive was a foot short 98/2

31.5 52.5 mph, length ball, takes the edge and caught at slip and no question that this is a catch to Trott. Tendulkar played forward to a ball just outside off - Swann's usual line - it ran straight on and took a thick edge which went quickly but straight into Trott's midriff 107/4

52.5 86.5 mph, full, drifting away this time, driven and and caught behind.
