View dismissal DL Maddy c Gambhir b Pathan 29 22 20 3 1 145.00
5.4 goes now - holing out to mid-on, who runs in from long-on to a straightforward chance 53/1
View dismissal VS Solanki c Sharma b Pathan 43 41 31 5 1 138.70
10.3 at last, India hold a catch! Solanki made room again, and swished up and over the off side. This time he couldn't get enough bat on it, and mid-off circled for an eternity before clinging onto a comfortable chance 96/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c & b Harbhajan Singh 39 33 23 3 1 169.56
14.1 that's curtains for England! A rank full-toss and Pietersen clobbered it, but straight back at the bowler. It was self-preservation first and foremost, but a great take in front of his face, and Pietersen is gone! 126/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood* b Singh 28 32 20 2 1 140.00
17.5 moved outside off, went for a massive hoick over square leg, missed again. This time the bowler didn't. And that's comprehensively bowled 170/5
View dismissal OA Shah c Joginder Sharma b Singh 21 15 13 3 1 161.53
17.3 short and Shah swings towards his favourite midwicket boundary, but it's high on the bat and plops straight into the hands of the fielder! England lose another well-set batsman, and their predicament just gets worse 170/4

View dismissal LJ Wright c Harbhajan Singh b Pathan 16 8 9 1 1 177.77
19.5 that's an incredible catch from Harbhajan on the long-on boundary! He reached up and back and plucked the six from thin air, inches inside the rope and right in front of the England dug-out! Risked life and limb and came up trumps! 196/6
