View dismissal Salman Butt b Khan 1 20 20 0 0 5.00
4.6 bowled him! Zaheer gets the ball to cut back into the left-hander off the pitch after angling it away from him, Butt was caught on his crease and tried to cut, the ball was far too close for the shot and went under the bat and crashed into the stumps, it kept a trifle low as well, the ball actually hit the top of off stump but, given the length it pitched, it would have gone over on a bouncier pitch 13/1
View dismissal Yasir Hameed b Kumble 29 94 66 4 0 43.93
21.2 the straighter one....Kumble gives the ball a bit of extra flight, lands on the line of off stump, Hameed plays a half hearted drive but the ball straightens and creeps through the daylight between bat and pad and clips the off stump 59/3
View dismissal Younis Khan c Patel b Khan 7 35 19 1 0 36.84
12.6 caught at fine leg! Zaheer bowls a well-directed bouncer, Younis perhaps wasn't expecting one for he had moved a long way forward, and was caught by surprise, he played a hurried hook but the ball was on to him too quickly, the top edge swirled high in the air and flew to Munaf at fine leg, who took an easy catch 35/2
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf lbw b Ganguly 27 64 43 5 0 62.79
29.1 leg-before! Ganguly drifts the ball into the right-hander, it pitches outside off and moved off the pitch into Yousuf who moved across his stumps to play the ball on the leg side and got hit on the pad in front of middle, the ball would have clipped leg and Taufel sends Yousuf on his way, Ganguly is thrilled 76/4
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq run out (Karthik) 82 315 243 6 1 33.74
95.4 from Ganguly, now that is bizarre, Misbah can't believe what he's done, he played the ball towards Karthik at point and went for the single, Karthik fielded it cleanly and shied at the non-striker's end, Misbah would have made his ground easily if he had grounded his bat, instead he was watching the throw come towards him just before he reached the crease, he jumped in the air to avoid the ball and created a passage for the ball to hit the stumps, and as the ball hit the stumps, Misbah was suspended in mid air, what a way to go after a supremely careful innings, he walks back hitting himself on the head 229/9
View dismissal Shoaib Malik* c †Dhoni b Patel 0 16 12 0 0 0.00
32.5 caught! That's a massive blow for Pakistan, Munaf pitches just short of a length around off stump and shapes the ball away from Malik who plays from his crease and pushes out at the ball, he gets a thick outside edge which flies to Dhoni's right, he takes a sharp catch to send the Pakistan captain on his way 83/5
View dismissal Kamran Akmal b Kumble 30 67 50 5 0 60.00
47.2 he's bowled him! That kept extremely low on Akmal, Kumble bowled a straight and quick delivery on off stump, Akmal played it off the back foot but was done in by the bounce, or rather the lack of it, the ball beat his defence and hit very low on the off stump, he should have been playing forward to that one, that's Kumble's 50th wicket at the Kotla 122/6
View dismissal Sohail Tanvir lbw b Harbhajan Singh 4 14 16 1 0 25.00
52.1 he's given him! Harbhajan bowled the quicker ball and it shot through to Tanvir and hit him in plumb of middle stump, he was on the back foot as well and Harbhajan and Dhoni had no doubt about the appeal, Doctrove was quick to raise the finger as well, replays show the ball pitched just marginally outside leg, close call 137/7
View dismissal Shoaib Akhtar b Kumble 2 6 7 0 0 28.57
53.6 Akhtar has a wild swipe across the line, Kumble had slipped in a quick and straight delivery and once Akhtar missed, the ball was headed straight for middle stump, poor thinking really for it was the last ball of the over, Akhtar should have looked to block and give the strike back to Misbah 142/8
Mohammad Sami not out 28 179 101 3 1 27.72
View dismissal Danish Kaneria b Kumble 0 4 2 0 0 0.00
96.2 Kumble hits the stumps for the fourth time, that was full and fast, Kaneria pushed forward at it but the ball breached his defenses and hit middle stump 231/10
