Thomas to Goswami,
Thomas finally lands one on an acceptable line and immediately strikes. Good ball, Thomas has this ability to get it to kick up from short of a length. It got big as it angled across Goswami who went for an airy feel without quite riding the bounce. Guided straight into the keeper's gloves.

Kumar to Tiwary,
Tiwary's innings has been full of adventure. And it has ended in unusual style too. Loopy short ball well outside off, tempts him into the pull but it was really too short and too wide, and he ended up chopping it onto the stumps. Ryder hurries across from point, and has another friendly word with Tiwary.

Parnell to Pathan,
and once again, Ganguly says it ain't over until it is over. It can't end without another one of my little moments of confounding brilliance. Yusuf is gone, Dada has taken a screamer at mid-off to send him back. Full length ball on middle, Yusuf doesn't get forward and looks to loft and it balloons away wide of mid-off. Ganguly moves away as swiftly as a 40-year old can, to his left, puts out both hands as he tumbles and takes it as he lands and rolls. Try and keep this man out of the game.
