Pollock to Khan, no run, just outside off, not much movement, Zaheer lets it go


Pollock to Khan, no run, straighter, on off stump. Pollock rarely wavers from outside off to off. Super bowling this. Defended carefully down the ground


Pollock to Khan, no run, bouncer this time, outside off, Zaheer in a bit of a tangle but manages to keep it down on the off side. Clumsy execution but more than effective.

India 395/7   Z Khan 0* (3b)

Harris to Khan, no run, pitches outside leg and turns sharp off the rough, Zaheer takes it on the hip keeping the bat as far away as possible


Harris to Khan, no run, defended confidently to the off side, Zaheer trying to take a big stride forward to negate the turn


Harris to Khan, no run, on the leg stump and kicked away easily. No point even considering anything other than that

India 396/7   Z Khan 0* (6b)

Pollock to Khan, no run, back of a length, cutting back in from Pollock. Keeping the batsmen on their toes. Zaheer gets behind the line and pushes it to mid-on


Pollock to Khan, no run, full and outside off. Probing, probing. Zaheer watches it carefully, plonks his foot foward and keeps it out


Pollock to Khan, no run, outside off, back of a length, Zaheer pats it to the off side but fielders prowling there


Pollock to Khan, no run, shorter, outside off again. Zaheer on the jump and keeps it down.


Pollock to Khan, 1 run, yorker length this time, a hint of reverse-swing from Pollock. Zaheer plants his foot forward and digs it out. Takes it on the full and the turned bat allows the ball to dribble away behind square on the leg side for a single

India 398/7   Z Khan 1* (11b)

Harris to Khan, OUT, GONE! Flighting it from over the wicket, dipping it in late, Zaheer is beaten by the flight and misses the length. Zaheer loses his balance once the ball is past him through the gap between pad and the stumps Mark Boucher, behind the stumps, whips the bails off in rapid motion. Fantastic work from Boucher. A few moments here and there and Zaheer would have been in the crease. His feet were in the air for a couple of seconds and Boucher has cashed in on that chance

India 398/8   Z Khan 1 (12b)
