Pakistan tour of India, 2007/08 / Wicket commentary

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150  | Overs 151-200

1.1

Sohail Tanvir to Karthik, OUT, Kartik's woes continues. Again out cheaply. Full and angling away from Kartik who pushed at with an open face of the bat and edges it to low to second slip. There was not much much foot movement, he just pushed at it. He scored runs in England but they have dried up in India. Gambhir has just hit a big ton in the Ranji Trophy and is breathing down his neck. The pressure will be immense on Kartik when he comes out to bat in the second innings

KD Karthik c Younis Khan b Sohail Tanvir 1 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

India 2/1   W Jaffer 1* (4b)   Sohail Tanvir 0.1-0-0-1

40.1

Danish Kaneria to Dravid, OUT, And he is given out. Dravid can't believe it. He shakes his head as he walks off. It was a flighted delivery, on the off stump and spun away. Dravid tried to drive inside-out, the bat hit the ground and the ball turned past the outside edge. It got struck between Akmal's right arm and the body, Kaneria appealed and Akmal, after making sure he has got the ball, joined in and umpire Doctrove raised his finger. Dravid is not happy. Anyway, Pakistan have managed to break through.

R Dravid c †Kamran Akmal b Danish Kaneria 50 (170m 118b 7x4 0x6) SR: 42.37

India 138/2   W Jaffer 82* (123b 14x4)   Danish Kaneria 11.1-3-34-1

75.3

Danish Kaneria to Tendulkar, OUT, Kaneria takes out Tendulkar with a googly! Done in by the wrong'un. It was ripped across full and around the off and middle stump line; Tendulkar tried to play it inside-out through covers but this was the other one. It broke back in to clean him up.

SR Tendulkar b Danish Kaneria 82 (146m 109b 12x4 0x6) SR: 75.22

India 313/3   W Jaffer 174* (226b 29x4)   Danish Kaneria 26.3-3-113-2

91.1

Sohail Tanvir to Jaffer, OUT, Like yesterday, Tanvir strikes with his first ball. Wasim Jaffer is gone after playing a fabulicious knock. It was slanting away from him and a tad outside off stump too but he stabbed at it. Fatal. He turned back in hope but Akmal was not going to drop this.

W Jaffer c †Kamran Akmal b Sohail Tanvir 202 (401m 274b 34x4 0x6) SR: 73.72

India 375/4   SC Ganguly 29* (46b 5x4)   Sohail Tanvir 24.1-3-118-2

129.6

Salman Butt to Ganguly, OUT, Ganguly falls, trying to up the ante. It was floated outside off, Ganguly had gone a touch outside leg stump in his charge and he then came across towards off but lost that fraction of second in the process. And ended up slicing his lofted shot to long-off. But it has been a special knock for him. First ton against Pakistan and that too at his Eden Gardens.

SC Ganguly c Sohail Tanvir b Salman Butt 102 (245m 156b 14x4 0x6) SR: 65.38

India 538/5   VVS Laxman 86* (123b 14x4)   Salman Butt 4-0-15-1
