View dismissal SC Ganguly c †Boucher b Vinay Kumar 4 6 1 0 66.66
2.3 edged and taken, lovely bowling too, after pushing him off to the back foot, he slips in one fuller that pitches on a length, pitches leg, and moves away, taking the edge, Praveen Kumar - Vinay's team-mate - will approve 13/1
View dismissal AN Ghosh c †Boucher b Vinay Kumar 7 7 1 0 100.00
4.2 oh my Ghosh! he walks across again, Vinay slips in a short one that gets big on him, and he looks to cut it over point, but all he manages is a nice little nick, okay bye 21/2
View dismissal DJ Hussey b Akhil 43 27 3 2 159.25
13.2 and Hussey imrpovises once too often, clears front leg again, looks to go over midwicket, Akhil bowls straight, length, and Hussey misses, the middle stump doesn't 91/3
View dismissal AD Mathews c Kohli b Kumble 16 13 2 0 123.07
17.3 Mathews's unconvincing stay ends, he steps out again, lofts again, doesn't get the timing right again, but for a change finds the long-on 134/4

View dismissal JD Ryder c Ganguly b Agarkar 22 20 3 0 110.00
9.2 Kolkata are closing in here, big wicket, Ryder looks to go over covers, makes room, manages to only slice it, and the ball flies straight to third man, where Ganguly takes the sitter 63/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c McCullum b Kartik 32 34 4 1 94.11
8.2 what a catch, take a bow Baz, this one was a short ball, punched away wide of cover - hold on not wide enough for McCullum - he absolutely flew, and caught it when the ball had gone past it. The captain is enjoying it today 58/1
View dismissal RV Uthappa c Mathews b Kartik 7 9 0 0 77.77
10.6 flat slog-sweep, good shot actually, but straight down the throat of deep backward square leg, the ball was perhaps a bit too close to Uthappa so he got the power but couldn't get the elevation 74/3

View dismissal R Dravid c & b Mendis 12 12 1 0 100.00
15.4 caught and bowled, carrom ball, turns away, not much, but Dravid has already moved away from the line, and the bottom part of the bat hits the ball straight back to Mendis who takes an easy catch 122/4
