    3.1 lbw! The umpire is quick to raise the finger. The ball pitched short of a length on middle, began to angle across Cook before straightening into the left hander. Cook played across the line from his crease and was hit just above the knee roll. I wonder if that was a touch high. Cook lingered and wasn't pleased. 8/1
    12.1 bowled! How did that happen? Kohli delivered a full ball outside off which swung into the right-hander. Kieswetter stayed in his crease and tried to chop towards point or third man. He should have been forward to that. The ball took the inside edge right at the bottom of the bat and uprooted leg stump. Kieswetter ended up yorking himself. 53/2

    29.1 a huge appeal, and the finger goes up! Pietersen stretched forward in defence but the ball goes straight on with the angle from round the wicket to rap him on the pad. He's given, lbw. That's a brave decision, as Pietersen was quite a long way down, but it did look pretty adjacent. KP was flabbergasted to be given out, but eventually dragged himself from the crease 154/3
    38.1 bowled him! Middle stump has been uprooted. Praveen returns to the attack and delivers a swinging yorker on off stump, Bopara tries to dig it out but ends up playing on 195/4

    15.4 Bresnan strikes! There's not been a great deal of swing out there this evening, but this one swung back in to the left-hander through the air, striking Parthiv on the pad as he poked from the crease. The umpire quickly upholds the lbw appeal, but on second viewing this was actually quite marginal. It's a borderline call as to whether it landed inside the line of leg 79/1
    37.5 got him! Finn strikes again and Rahane misses his hundred. It was a full delivery, perhaps a touch slower, that he aimed to play to leg but got a leading edge which carried low to mid-off. A little send-off from Finn, I think 212/3
    33.2 super catch! England have a breakthrough and Finn a deserved wicket. Gambhir tired to go over the covers, the ball came off the splice but still looked like it could clear Pietersen until he leapt backwards and stuck out a left hand. Does that give England a glimmer? 190/2

    41.4 Swann strikes! Virat Kohli is out, beating by dip and massive spin off the surface. He played from the crease and was struck on the front pad. Did it spin too much? Sudhir Asnani doesn't think so, giving him out quickly. England are giving themselves a chance here 235/5
    38.4 gone! Huge wicket. Game on. Raina stands on leg stump, opens his stance, and tries to go over cover but picks out Pietersen 217/4
