View dismissal B Chipli b Singh 10 7 2 0 142.85
1.6 this comes back in and cramps him up for room as he tries to glide this behind square on the offside, he only manages a thick inside edge which pegs back his legstump 13/1
View dismissal W Jaffer c Gibbs b Ojha 44 37 6 0 118.91
10.6 Ojha changes his line of attack by bowling over the wicket, the track works as Jaffer gets on his knee and tries to slog across the line, he gets a thick leading edge and Gibbs takes the skier at extra cover 85/2
View dismissal V Kohli c Bangar b Singh 38 29 1 2 131.03
13.2 Kohli takes a few paces down to loft that over the infield, RP digs it in short, Kohli fails to get the desired elevation and hands an easy catch for Bangar at deep extra cover 104/4
View dismissal JH Kallis b Ojha 6 5 1 0 120.00
12.5 the art of deception! Kallis takes a few tentative paces forward but misreads the length of the ball, it is short and comes on straight and takes out the middle stump, the joy on Ojha's face says it all 102/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq lbw b Shahid Afridi 3 5 0 0 60.00
14.2 Misbah goes! Afridi bowls the quicker one, pitches on middle and leg and comes in with the angle, Misbah is beaten for pace and ball clips him high on the pad, Doctrove is convinced, replays showed the ball missing the legstump, he might feel slightly aggrieved with that 111/5
View dismissal R Dravid* c Yadav b Styris 26 19 1 2 136.84
19.6 comes round the wicket, Dravid scoops this over extra cover and Yadav at the deep just hangs onto it inches before the rope 156/8

View dismissal P Kumar run out (Bangar/Styris) 8 4 2 0 200.00
19.4 from Styris, Praveen fails to control the scoop over short fine leg and the ball lobs off his glove and just falls short of the fielder, the running was circumspect and in the end it was an an wasy run-out at the bowlers end with Praveen miles before the crease 150/7
