Hayward to Jaffer, OUT, Speared in at the toes. Swung in from wide of the crease, it raps him on the back leg, leaving the umpire in no doubt whatsoever.

Morkel to Tendulkar, OUT, That's the big one! Sachin Tendulkar does not get the feet moving, pushes at it, gets the edge to 2nd slip, Kemp takes the catch cleanly.

24.3

Morkel to Dhoni, OUT, EDGED! GONE! The quick men again the undoing of the Indian top order, a ball outside the off and moving away a touch is flayed at only to get the edge to a diving keeper

MS Dhoni c †van Wyk b Morkel 6 (20m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 46.15

Indians 69/5   SC Ganguly 20* (43b 2x4)   M Morkel 8.3-0-29-4

59.1

de Wet to Ganguly, OUT, Gone! Ganguly falls after a valiant knock. The ball landed on a length, shaped away, Ganguly attempted to cut, it bounces a bit more than he expected and he gets a faint tickle to the wicketkeeper. That was a real fighting innings under pressure. A strong statement of intent from the former captain. A super comeback.

SC Ganguly c †van Wyk b de Wet 83 (224m 141b 13x4 0x6) SR: 58.86

Indians 208/6   IK Pathan 64* (111b 9x4)   F de Wet 13.1-2-43-1

Thomas to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, And the 79-run partnership is broken. Harbhajan goes for the big drive, scoops it a bit and Rudolph takes the catch at mid-on.

Indians 287/7   IK Pathan 93* (158b 13x4)   AC Thomas 16.5-7-33-1
