    29.5 makes him play this time, big appeal for caught behind and given out the finger goes up straight away but the immediate replay suggests Cook may be unlucky again. He was drawn forward just outside off stump, there was a little turn that look it away from Cook, there was a sound which drew the appeal, it was a straightforward take for Dhoni and the umpire nodded and raised his finger instantly. In fact the replay suggests that Cook missed it by a long distance, another very poor decision from Dharmasena 48/1

    46.4 sliding on, hit on the front pad and Tucker raises the finger! Was that ripper earlier in the over still playing through Compton's mind? He pushed forward to a full delivery, playing for more turn than eventually materialised... Oh, and it looks like he got a bit of bat on it before it thudded into pad. Compton stands and grimaces, he has to walk, that's a big blow for India to strike right on the brink of tea. Not sure, as we haven't had another look, but the ball might have been caught as well, though it was given lbw 81/2

    134.1 leg stump, flicked at and it's off the face to leg slip, a wicket! And India finally remove Trott getting him to flirt at a full delivery from around the wicket into the rough outside leg stump and he got a good load of bat on it put straight to Kohli who held a solid chance at chest height with two hands 302/4
    55.5 off stump delivery, Pietersen leaves it and is bowled oh goodness what a blow, Pietersen shouldering arms, the ball has done nothing but go straight on and clip the outside of off stump. An identical dismissal to Trott in the first innings, leaving a delivery too straight that hasn't turned an iota 94/3
