  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss c & b Mishra 123 356 233 15 0 52.78
83.3 well held, Mishra! Strauss falls close before stumps, chipping a generously tossed up delivery back towards Mishra's left and he dives to take a very good catch, ending a fine innings from Strauss, one which may prove very crucial as this match pans out 221/5
View dismissal AN Cook c Khan b Harbhajan Singh 52 172 116 5 0 44.82
39.6 and Cook loses his composure in what has been a top over! Harbhajan is rewarded for a nagging few deliveries, he takes pace off the ball and tosses it up, Cook fetches it from outside off stump with a mess of an attempted slog sweep, the ball skies up into the air and Zaheer settles under it at mid-on ... Cook was batting really well until that brain freeze 118/1
View dismissal IR Bell lbw b Khan 17 68 51 1 0 33.33
57.2 that's lbw! Zaheer strikes just on resumption, pitches on line with the stumps, swings the ball into Bell, late on the attempted flick across the line, he's a goner in front of the stumps and Harper raises his finger after a careful thought 164/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen* c & b Khan 4 34 33 0 0 12.12
65.4 another one goes! Zaheer removes an uncertain Pietersen, whose attempt to pull a short ball takes the splice of the bat and goes nowhere but into the bowler's hands, running across towards the on side, what a massive wicket for India 180/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Gambhir b Harbhajan Singh 9 33 26 1 0 34.61
72.2 oh he's given him, has Billy! Harbhajan tosses it up, slowing down the pace, the ball pitches and takes nothing but pad en route to Gambhir at short leg, they ask the question and Bowden raises the crooked finger ... replays show Collingwood got his bat nowhere near the ball, so a harsh call you have to say, and a very lucky wicket for India and Harbhajan 195/4
View dismissal A Flintoff c Gambhir b Mishra 18 80 75 2 0 24.00
92.5 got 'em! Flintoff cannot play the slow, nurdling and nudging game for long and he perishes early, thrusting forward again and getting another inside edge that bobs up to Gambhir at forward short leg, so Dhoni's move to swap Ishant for Mishra after just one over works superbly 229/6
View dismissal JM Anderson c Yuvraj Singh b Mishra 19 113 82 2 0 23.17
110.4 Anderson goes! End of a solid innings from the nighwatchman, who kneels down and produces another of those preferred sweep shots, except this one is a top edge that's gobbled up by the birthday boy Yuvraj at deep midwicket, so Mishra's patience pays off 271/7
MJ Prior not out 53 146 102 1 0 51.96
View dismissal GP Swann c Dravid b Harbhajan Singh 1 11 6 0 0 16.66
113.4 well hello, thats fairly ripped up! Harbhajan holds back the length and gets this nasty one to turn and bounce up off a crack to flummox Swann, who can do nothing about that except fend it off his chest and edge to Dravid at slip, who makes no mistake this time 277/8
View dismissal SJ Harmison c †Dhoni b Yuvraj Singh 6 32 23 0 0 26.08
122.3 Harmison walks! Yuvraj gets his fifth Test wicket as Harmison opens the face and tickles the faintest of edges through to Dhoni, then doesn't wait a moment before turning and heading back for the pavilion, as opposed to Yuvraj, who shouts in frustration and turns back to his mark, thinking he's beat the bat, then he looks back and sees that he's actually got a wicket 304/9
View dismissal MS Panesar lbw b Sharma 6 23 26 0 0 23.07
128.4 all over, as Ishant traps Monty plumb in front! This one pitches in line, straightens a fraction, and catches Monty in front as the bat comes down late, so England get 316 316/10

13.3 Swann's struck in his first over in Tests! Gambhir is the man to go, opting to pad away a delivery tossed up full just outside off stump, he doesn't get a massive stride forward and the ball turns back to hit him, England ask the question very confidently and now Harper agrees 34/2
View dismissal V Sehwag b Anderson 9 24 16 2 0 56.25
5.2 Anderson's got Sehwag playing a feeble shot! Pitches back of a length and comes into Sehwag, who stands leaden-footed and tries to play a cramped guide to third man but only chops it back onto his stumps .. Anderson is thrilled, for thats a dangerous man to dismiss early 16/1

32.1 another one bites the dust! Flintoff strikes first ball, what a change by Pietersen, Tendulkar gets a loosener just outside off stump and plays the tamest of drives back in the air to the bowler, who grasps it all to eagerly in his follow-through before breaking into celebrations 102/5
View dismissal VVS Laxman c & b Panesar 24 81 60 3 0 40.00
31.2 caught and bowled, and a moment of uncertainty! Laxman just chips one back to Panesar's right, who plucks the hard-hit drive and then looks on as if he can't believe it, and neither can Laxman, it wasn't a terrific catch or anything, it was just about a moment of silence before anyone realised what had happened .. anyway, Laxman has to go and Panesar celebrates 98/4
