View dismissal SC Ganguly c Flintoff b Anderson 15 30 22 2 0 68.18
6.1 His luck runs out finally. Full in length, slanting away from him and he had a lame poke at it with an open-face of the bat and it went low to the second slip. 26/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c †Prior b Flintoff 30 80 46 4 0 65.21
15.4 gone, but how! Flintoff pitches full again, outside off stump, Tendulkar drives loosely, bat misses ball completely, instead the bat clips the pad as he goes through with the shot, they appeal for the catch from Prior and Aleem Dar pulls off a shocking dismissal! Wow, there was no bat on ball whatsoever and Tendulkar is livid. Another bad dismissal in this long summer of competitive cricket. 59/4
View dismissal G Gambhir c Wright b Anderson 12 30 20 0 0 60.00
12.4 oh superb catch from Wright! Gambhir swivels uneasily, latching onto a short of a length delivery just outside off stump, the ball comes off the bottom of the bat and flies low and fast to Wright at square leg, who times his dive forward brilliantly and plucks it inches off the ground! 52/2
View dismissal R Dravid* c †Prior b Flintoff 0 5 3 0 0 0.00
13.3 and it works! That ball was quick, pitching back of a length outside off stump and jagging in, Dravid hops up and tries to drop the bat out of harms way but theres a noise as ball passes him, it deviates sharply and Prior collects moving to his left, they all go up in appeal and Aleem Dar nods his head and raises the finger! Dravid isnt happy at all, the ball bounced well and he seems to say the bat flicked his pad... 53/3
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Collingwood b Mascarenhas 28 77 48 1 1 58.33
30.2 That's a big wicket. Huge blow to India. Yuvraj Singh is gone. It lands on a length, around the off and middle line and angles away, Yuvraj steers it straight to Collingwood who had placed himself at third slip position. 119/6
View dismissal RV Uthappa c Anderson b Mascarenhas 22 40 30 2 0 73.33
24.3 And Uthappa combusts. Full and outside off, it was a slower one, Uthappa loses patience and slashes it uppishly straight to mid-off. It was in the slot allright but instead of driving it through extra cover, he tried to clear mid-off and paid the penalty. The bat-face shut a touch and he didn't get his placement or timing right. 106/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni c Anderson b Flintoff 50 98 72 4 1 69.44
47.3 good catch in the deep! Dhoni slogs a fullish delivery and mistimes it over the covers and mid-off, the ball's up in the air for some time and Anderson, moving to his left and running around from long-off, watches the ball brilliantly and times his dive to perfection, cupping his hands and holding on to end India's innings at 187 187/10
View dismissal RR Powar run out (Shah/†Prior) 10 27 20 1 0 50.00
37.2 Panesar to Dhoni, gone this time however! Tossed up on leg stump, Dhoni gets forward and tucks it fine, setting off for the sharp single towards square leg, Powar scampers down the track and realizes he's struggling, then decides to dive full stretch but he's short this time as Prior collects a good throw from Shah and flicks the stumps, and thats India's seventh wicket down on 147 147/7
View dismissal PP Chawla st †Prior b Mascarenhas 0 5 6 0 0 0.00
38.4 smart stumping! Similar delivery, pushed across Chawla, who drives lustily and misses, dragging the back foot forward and Prior, after collecting nicely, whips off the bails just before Chawla could drag the foot back in, neatly done to get rid of India's eighth batsman 148/8
View dismissal Z Khan b Panesar 7 15 16 1 0 43.75
41.6 bowled 'em! Monty tosses it up on middle and off, Zaheer goes for a regulation tail-end swipe across the line, misses, and loses his stumps for Monty to break into celebration! India are nine down... 160/9

View dismissal MJ Prior c †Dhoni b Singh 0 9 7 0 0 0.00
1.4 Another one goes down. India are running hot here. In the zone outside the off stump, from a length and Prior seems to be in trance and just pokes at it. Fatal edge. He slams his bat into his pads as he walks off, furious with himself. He's really marching back to the pavilion now. 11/2
View dismissal LJ Wright c & b Singh 0 6 2 0 0 0.00
1.2 RP gets his man this time. A sharp bouncer, angling away from Wright, who tries to fetch it from there - a weak pull shot- and it just lobs up for RP to come under it. He was on his way back to the pavilion as soon as he hit it: he knew he'd gone 10/1
View dismissal IR Bell run out (Tendulkar/Ganguly) 36 62 40 6 0 90.00
15.6 Ganguly to Pietersen, run out! Back of a length again, he shuffles and works it to midwicket, Pietersen shows some interest in the run but sees Tendulkar swooping in on the ball, theres a bit of yes-no-maybe-so before Bell turns back and runs, Ganguly rushes back to collect a low and slow return and breaks the stumps just before Bell's outstretched bat reaches the line, big, big wicket that for India as a result of some indecisive calling from the two batsmen. Pietersen totally sold Bell down the river, starting for the run and then with Bell committed checked, leaving Bell with nowhere to go 74/3
