India 123/0   G Gambhir 52* (54b 9x4)

17.5

Roach to Gambhir, no run, Run-out chance. GG wants a single after leaving the ball on the pitch. Sehwag is not interested. GG has to go back. A charging Roach has to go around Gambhir and is caught in a bit of a tangle. Can't field the ball, otherwise GG was struggling. Sammy appeals for obstruction of the field. A very polite, hope-against-hope query. Replays show that Gambhir did alter his course a little, by a foot maybe. Hard to tell, but the umpires not interested anyway

India 132/0   G Gambhir 52* (56b 9x4)
