Kumble to Hayden, OUT, innings comes to an end with a superb catch on the ropes! Kumble floats it up, Hayden swings hard, the ball is up in the for some time during which Vinay Kumar runs across on the deep midwicket boundary trying to size it up, then he runs and takes it, losing balance, he trips ... whoops, one step, two .. but all is well in the end as he makes sure he's just inside the ropes ... amazing reflexes and recovery
