View dismissal SC Ganguly c †Gilchrist b Hopes 41 95 59 6 0 69.49
19.6 Hopes gets the breakthrough. Full and outside off, Ganguly kept his front leg outside the leg stump and went for a slash but ended up nicking it to Gilchrist, who is standing up to the stumps. 91/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar run out (Lee) 79 184 119 7 0 66.38
41.5 from Hopes, Full in length, on the off and middle, Tendulkar missed a paddle sweep and the ball ran to Lee at short fine leg region. There was a huge shout for lbw and Bucknor turned it down. Meanwhile, Tendulkar had reached almost the middle of the track and was sent back but couldn't beat Lee's direct hit. It caught everybody by surprise. Gilchrist was still appealing... 221/3
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Ponting b Hopes 39 61 55 5 0 70.90
35.6 Gone. Yuvraj falls. Short of length delivery, on the off stump, Yuvraj goes for a lofted drive on the up but can only end up ballooning it to extra cover. 174/2

View dismissal AC Gilchrist c Khan b Singh 18 25 17 1 1 105.88
5.1 This time the short one pays off! RP bangs it in and Gilchrist goes for the pull. The ball goes high and far but it's not timed well enough to go all the way. Zaheer Khan is positioned in the deep just for this shot and takes the catch. Big breakthrough for India 37/1
View dismissal ML Hayden c Khan b Kartik 92 156 92 11 2 100.00
33.5 Got him! Again Hayden comes down the pitch, once more Kartik adjusts his flight and length and Hayden is beaten a touch. He goes through with the shot anyway. This time one hand comes off the bat and the ball does not have enough on it. It sails towards the midwicket fence but Zaheer Khan settles under the catch. Big breakthrough for India 190/4
View dismissal RT Ponting* st †Dhoni b Pathan 29 62 33 5 0 87.87
18.2 Big blow. Ponting is stumped. Full in length, slanting away from Ponting who leans forward to drive. The bat comes outside the line and the ball threads the bat and pad gap. Dhoni gathers and whips the bails off in flash. He appeals for a stumping chance and it is referred upstairs. Ponting had lunged forward while trying to drive and his back foot was on the crease. The line belongs to the umpire and he is out. Ponting stands there for a long time, unhappy at the verdict. I can't understand why he stood so long there. He was seen muttering and gesticulating even as he walked up the stairs to reach the dressing room. It was a decision made by the third umpire. Anyway ... that's that. 122/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke c & b Harbhajan Singh 6 13 15 1 0 40.00
21.4 Down the pitch comes Clarke again, charges even, Harbhajan holds the ball back a touch tossing it up and Clarke only prods back to the bowler. It's uppish and Harbhajan snaps. That's a big wicket for India and a clever bit of bowling from Harbhajan Singh 132/3
View dismissal A Symonds b Singh 75 103 84 3 1 89.28
46.5 Got him! This is a huge, huge wicket for India at this stage. Symonds, perhaps mindful of the fact that a boundary had not been struck in a while, tries to improvise. Symonds goes to the leg side and shapes to cut. The ball pitches on middle and straightens a touch and once Symonds has missed it only one result is possible. The middle stump is pegged back and India have a big wicket as the pressure mounts in this tight finish 268/6
View dismissal BJ Hodge st †Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 17 36 29 1 0 58.62
43.3 down the leg side, first the wide ball comes, Hodge tries to flick this off his pads but seems to overbalance. Dhoni collects cleanly and whips the bails off in a flash. The decision is referred to the third umpire. The replay shows quite clearly that Hodge has dragged his foot out of the crease and he has to go as the third umpire gives the decision in India's favour 246/5
JR Hopes not out 23 30 20 1 0 115.00
View dismissal GB Hogg run out (Singh) 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
46.6 from Singh, fullish and on the pads, Hogg works this down the pitch and ambles rather aimlessly further towards the bowler. RP Singh has pounced on the ball in a flash and lets rip a powerful and accurate throw. The stumps are down and that's the end of Brad Hogg! India right back in this game now 268/7
