    7.4 this is beautifully bowled! Too good for Gilly.. Bowled a touch slower, invites Gilly out, but then this turns the other way, in the gap between the pad and the pad.. Then Read does the rest.. super stumping too. 54/2

    6.5 this one is through Sehwag! It was full and on the stumps but unlike the last few times, it didn't swing away, just went through.. Sehwag was looking to drive it down the ground but left a gap between the pad and the bat, loses his middle stump 54/1
    9.5 Ajmal has a second one! There are times when he gets out for over -aggression.. today, though, for being overtly defensive. Tries to push at this doosra, doesn't pick up the movement and is rapped on the pads. Easy decision for the umpire. Uh oh.. i think there was an inside edge on that. 59/3
    11.4 he is done in by the doosra! Excellent stuff by Ajmal, too god for these batsman here. I am not sure he is reading into the script of making sure the game goes on for 100 overs. KP hops out of the crease, gets squared up by the other one, can't get any bat or pad on that one.. and Read whips the bails off. At least someone is reading Ajmal here. Well read Read 68/4
    48.5 Yuvi tries to repeat the shot, but this is high rather than long.. Tendulkar gets a wicket as the batsman holes out at long-on. Yuvi walks back to a standing ovation.. He lifted the score from a position of mediocrity to the current-levels of a match-winning one 283/7
    12 that's gone! Ajmal is surely spoiling this party.. That was quick offspinner.. Lala stayed on the backfoot, tried it to turn it to the leg side, but was late on that shot.. Loses his offstump. Typical Afridi innings.. of sorts 68/5
    37 awesome catch at gullly! No wonder he is the leading catcher in Tests.. The batsman goes after this length delivery and gets a thick outside edge towards gully.. it was dying to his left and Dravid's takes it in smartly.. Someone here hasn't lost the fielding instincts yet. 199/6

    17 he was being too cheeky here and he pays the price! tossed up delivery, not short enough for the cut, and it was too close to the offstump.. It hits the underedge and hits the offstump.. He falls offbalance too. Smartly bowled by Murali there and it was an error on SRT's part 107/1
    29.4 that's the end of Lara as he edges one that was too close to cut! It's been a pleasure to watch while it lasted.. after such a long time. He walks back to a standing ovation. 174/2
    29.5 he is gone first ball! Colly you beauty! Disappointment for Dravid fans.. He pushed forward, slightly outside the line of the ball, gets an inside edge, on to his pads, then on to his stumps..Just enough wobble on that ball from Colly to mess up with the batsman's defence. KP is overjoyed 174/3
