    29.6 the bowling change has worked! Gambhir walks across his stumps and tries to fetch it from outside the off stump and work it to the on side, he tries to clip it away but gets an inside edge which rolls on to his stumps 163/4
    1.2 inside edge and timber! Broad gets the ball to cut back in after pitching on a good length and Sehwag is a little late in covering the movement, the ball takes the inside edge and strikes the base of the offstump. Sehwag played a similar shot off Anderson in the previous over but got away. Not this time. 4/1
    3.4 very soft dismissal and Broad has two now, the ball pitches on a good length on middle and leg, Raina expects it to come on quicker and is too early on the stroke, he ends up chipping it tamely to Patel at short square leg who falls forward and takes it comfortably 15/2
    7.3 He's thrown his wicket away, a sudden rush of blood from Rohit Sharma, he attempts to hook a short ball on a slow pitch and fails to carry off the stroke, Owais Shah at midwicket takes a sitter, Broad is the star of the morning 29/3
    43.4 and finally England have found a way to dismiss Yuvraj, Broad pitches it up outside off and Yuvraj throws everything at it, there's a feather touch and Prior takes the offering easily 239/6
    38.6 temporary respite for England, Dhoni tries to improvise by glancing to third man with very little room outside the off stump, the offcutter nips back in and shaves the off stump 206/5

    46.3 direct hit, he makes room and clubs a full delivery straight to Pietersen at mid-off who's back on the edge of the circle, he takes aim and knocks the stumps at the bowler's end and Harbhajan doesn't even wait for the umpire's signal, he walks 258/7
    47.5 well for a change there's some wood on leather and it beats the bowler, he pushes it to Patel at mid-on and sets off for a very risky run, he hits the timber, no need for the replay, Zaheer's misery ends 261/8
    49.1 makes room to heave it over midwicket but misses, Harmison bowls it bang on the leg stump line, the ball goes through straight and pegs the legstump back 274/9

    0.6 athleticism at its best and Raina is the toast of the team at the moment, Bell taps it with soft hands in front of Raina at short mid-off and sets off confidently, the ball goes across Raina but it doesn't hinder his dive as he slides and in one motion under arms the ball at the stumps, there's no need for a replay, Bell was miles out of his crease 6/1
    25.5 Yuvraj's dream run continues, he angles that from outside the off stumps and directs it towards leg, Prior makes too much room to cut and the ball goes through straight and hits the leg stump 109/3
    23.1 The flatter one sends him packing, Yuvraj really fires that flat and gave very little time for Shah to execute the pull, hits him bang in line with legstump, Saheba had no hesitation in raising the finger 102/2
    37.5 and it's that man Yuvraj again! Pietersen gets down to defend and leaves a lot of daylight between bat and pad, the ball pitches on off stump and goes through straight and knocks the off stump 184/5
    37.2 a wicket falls against the run of play, Yuvraj floats it on middle and leg, he gets on his knee early to slog sweep but the ball hits him in line with legstump, Saheba gives it out immediately 183/4
    39.5 soft dismissal, he tries to drive straight but commits to the shot too early, he ends up lobbing it low to Harbhajan who falls forward and takes the catch, another one bites the dust 187/6
    44.4 comes down the track and tries to launch him downtown again, Gambhir at deep midwicket juggles with it three times before finally catching it 222/8
    41.1 the slide continues, flighted on middle and leg, he tamely chips down to midwicket and Raina shows good reflexes to to dive to his right and pull off the catch 191/7

    46.2 No. 10 makes his walk back to the pavilion, Sehwag tempts him to go for the big hit down the ground, he's beaten in flight and Dhoni whips off the bails, the third umpire takes a look, his foot was in the air 233/9
