    40.5 Tamim's sent back! Kept it flat, bowled it slightly short outside off and got it to turn away, with just eight minutes left to lunch Tamim went for a needless slash through point and cover, got a thick edge and sent it straight to Dravid's palms at slip, poor shot from a batsman well set 135/5
    2.3 caught! Zaheer bowls a lovely delivery with an upright seam, pitching on a good length outside off, drawing the batsman forward, the ball holds its line and takes the outside edge as Kayes presses forward, easy catch for Karthik 8/1
    13.5 that's the end of Nafees' stay, he was squared up by a shortish ball just outside off, there was no footwork from him as he fended at the ball, the edge flies to gully where Sehwag takes a low catch to his right 47/2
    21.2 Ashraful goes, Ishant gets the movement, lands on a good length and he was looking to drive on the up, got a thick edge and Dravid at second slip dives to his left to snap a sharp chance, India strike early 79/3
    29.3 gone! Done in by the one that nipped back in, landed on a good length on the off and moved in to beat Raqibul's attempted defence off the back foot, he clearly didn't anticipate the extent of movement there, was struck on the pads and though it initially appeared that it would be going over, replays suggested it would have hit the top of middle 97/4
    45.4 gone! Done in by the googly, short of a good length on middle, he was expecting it to turn in but it shot away, went off the shoulder off the bat and it lobbed up towards silly point who took it comfortably over his head 145/6
    75.2 India have won, flighted it and he came down the track to launch it over Ojha at long-off but couldn't, the substitute fielder dived forward to complete a good catch and seal victory 301/10
    52.5 Zaheer finally wins the duel, not the greatest of deliveries, it's short and wide and there to cut but Mahmudullah has to reach for this one, doesn't move much, gets a faint edge as he attempts the shot and Karthik takes it easily 170/7
    63.5 the googly gets him! Shahadat was clueless, turned on a good length on the off and turned in to bowl the batsman through the gate, Shahadat was playing for the turn away from him but he misread it 230/8
    67.6 he couldn't wait one ball, saw a chance with a flighted one outside off, drilled it back straight to MIshra who took a good return catch bending low 258/9
