179.2

Kumble to Johnson, FOUR, uses his feet and clips it on the full over midwicket, where Mishra cant get to it and nearly over runs it, perhaps losing it in the sun's glare the ball goes for four and Kumble is furious

179.3

Kumble to Johnson, OUT, chuck that, says Kumble, I'll take it! Kumble finishes the innings with a good return catch, running across towards the off side and taking it with both hands, despite the left one in pain, after Johnson swings a top-edged slog sweep miles up in the air
