    17.5 an awful mix-up and Butt has to go, Butt tried to close the face of the bat and play the ball on the leg side, he got a leading edge which rolled towards extra cover, Butt set off for the single but Younis sent him back, Yuvraj had moved quickly to his left from cover, picked the ball up with one hand and threw it back to Dhoni who broke the stumps with Butt well short, big wicket for India 69/2
    10.1 Pathan strikes! The ball was pitched on leg and middle stump and it went straight through to Akmal who tried to pull, it was short and came slowly off the pitch, completely beating Akmal, he got hit on the pad in front of off and middle and Gould sends him on his way, replays show that the ball might have pitched outside leg stump ... 44/1
    29.5 caught in the deep! Younis comes down the track and tries to clear the long-on boundary, he didn't time it well enough and hit it straight to Pathan on the boundary who takes a simple catch, Younis falls at a crucial time 104/3

    38.5 stumped! Afridi tries to charge Tendulkar and make room to hit over the off side by backing towards leg, Tendulkar once again sees him coming and bowls it quicker and outside off stump, the ball spins away from Afridi, beats the outside edge of his bat and Dhoni whips off the bails with Afridi stranded 163/4
    40.2 caught in the deep! Tendulkar bowls a nice juicy full toss which really should have been dispatched over the boundary, instead Malik gets his front foot out of the way and pulls the ball straight to Gambhir on the deep midwicket boundary, Tendulkar gets lucky with a loose ball 165/5
    49.2 caught! Misbah tries to hit Zaheer over the straight boundary, he clears his front foot out of the way to make room and lofts it, he hasn't timed it well and Harbhajan runs to his right from long-off and takes a well-judged catch on the run 233/6
    49.6 Yousuf tries to run the final ball down to third man, Zaheer kept it full and outside off stump, he got an edge that went to Dhoni on the bounce, Rehman called Yousuf through for the single, as he should have because it is the final ball of the innings, Dhoni whipped off his glove and hit the stumps direct at the batsman's end with Rehman short of his crease 239/7

    16.5 Ganguly is run out! He played the ball off the pads to short fine leg and wanted the single, Gambhir sent him back after seeing Butt get to the ball swiftly, the throw came in quickly to Akmal who broke the stumps, Ganguly showed no real urgency in getting back and replays find that his bat is on the line as the bails come off, Pakistan get the break through against the run of play 96/2
    2.5 lbw! The slower ball has Tendulkar beaten, he moved across his stumps and tried to flick through the leg side, he missed and was hit on the knee roll in front of the stumps, the umpire took his time but eventually sent Tendulkar on his way, that was pretty plumb 14/1
    20.6 bowled him! Gambhir doesn't know what's happened! Afridi slips in the offbreak, pitching it outside leg stump, Gambhir moves across his stumps and tries to play it towards midwicket, he misses and the ball spins in to hit leg stump, huge wicket for Pakistan 113/3
    44.1 and he strikes straight away! Shoaib pitches one on a good length outside off stump, Dhoni drives away from his body and gets a thick edge through to Akmal who takes the catch this time, it was flying at considerable speed and the light isn't the best so he did well to hold on to it 225/5
    42.6 caught in the deep! Yuvraj gets down on one knee and slog sweeps Rehman, looking to clear the deep backward square leg boundary, he got a bit of a top edge that flew straight to fine leg where Afridi takes an easy catch 218/4
