Mohammad Sami to Gambhir, OUT, Gone! short of a good length and outside the off stump, Gambhir feels for that one outside the off stump and only manages an edge as the ball moves away a fraction. The edge carries - that's a first in this series - and Kamran Akmal dives to his left and takes a good catch

G Gambhir c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Sami 5 (40m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 26.31

India 8/1   W Jaffer 3* (27b)   Mohammad Sami 3.4-2-3-1

Yasir Arafat to Dravid, OUT, short of a length and outside the off, Dravid's eyes light up and he goes for the cut. The ball bounces a touch extra and the ball goes off a thick edge to Misbah at first slip who makes no mistake

R Dravid c Misbah-ul-Haq b Yasir Arafat 19 (45m 28b 3x4 0x6) SR: 67.85

India 44/2   W Jaffer 17* (54b 3x4)   Yasir Arafat 3.2-0-11-1

Yasir Arafat to Jaffer, OUT, full and on the off, sharp swing in for Arafat, Jaffer shoulders arms to the wrong ball and is dead in the water. No doubt at all about that one and Jaffer goes. That was a serious error in judgment from a batsman in prime form

W Jaffer lbw b Yasir Arafat 17 (90m 62b 3x4 0x6) SR: 27.41

India 51/3   SC Ganguly 7* (5b 1x4)   Yasir Arafat 4.3-0-18-2

Yasir Arafat to Laxman, OUT, just short of a good length and on the off, this one keeps a bit low, Laxman defends without quite bending low and the ball goes off the toe of the bat back onto the stumps. That is a huge wicket for Arafat and Pakistan just before lunch

VVS Laxman b Yasir Arafat 5 (19m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

India 61/4   SC Ganguly 12* (18b 2x4)   Yasir Arafat 6.2-0-22-3

Mohammad Sami to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, Gone! against the run of play a wicket falls in the dying moments of the day. Yuvraj Singh looks to work the ball to the leg side, closes the face of the bat early. The ball spears off the leading edge and goes up in the air to the gully region. Faisal Iqbal takes the catch and an absolutely fabulous innings comes to an end. Loud applause for Yuvraj as he trudges off the ground

Yuvraj Singh c Faisal Iqbal b Mohammad Sami 169 (250m 203b 28x4 1x6) SR: 83.25

India 361/5   SC Ganguly 124* (210b 20x4)   Mohammad Sami 21.4-4-101-2

Yasir Arafat to Karthik, OUT, Gone! just short of a good length, outside the off, a hint of away movement, Karthik plays at the ball without quite moving his feet, the outside edge goes straight to Kamran Akmal who takes a simple catch

KD Karthik c †Kamran Akmal b Yasir Arafat 24 (90m 70b 3x4 0x6) SR: 34.28

India 427/6   SC Ganguly 158* (260b 23x4)   Yasir Arafat 28.4-3-127-4

Danish Kaneria to Ganguly, OUT, And there's the moment. A loopy ball outside the off stump, Ganguly looks to sweep and misses. The ball goes back onto the stumps and Ganguly's amazing run comes to an end. It's been an innings of sheer grit and handsome strokeplay. Even Pakistan's players applaud Ganguly off the field as he walks off for 239, his highest ever score in Test cricket.

SC Ganguly b Danish Kaneria 239 (518m 361b 30x4 2x6) SR: 66.20

India 605/7   IK Pathan 90* (119b 10x4 3x6)   Danish Kaneria 43.2-8-155-1

Danish Kaneria to Kumble, OUT, Gone! minor relief for Pakistan as Kumble plays half-cocked to a googly and takes the ball on the pad. Loud shout for the lbw and Simon Taufel gives it

A Kumble lbw b Danish Kaneria 4 (16m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

India 615/8   IK Pathan 95* (130b 10x4 3x6)   Danish Kaneria 45.1-8-158-2

Yasir Arafat to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, fullish, on the stumps, the ball keeps really low, Harbhajan can't get the bat down in time and the stumps are rearranged.

Harbhajan Singh b Yasir Arafat 4 (4m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

India 620/9   IK Pathan 96* (131b 10x4 3x6)   Yasir Arafat 38.2-5-161-5

Danish Kaneria to Pathan, OUT, Pathan tries to repeat the stroke and falls. He jumps down the pitch and has a big heave. The ball goes up in the air off the edge and Kamran Akmal takes the catch
