    21.1 And Butt's wait ends. short of a length and outside the off, cut played and the thick edge goes to the keeper who snaps up the ball, that is a smart catch from Dinesh Karthik and another wicket for Kumble 73/3
    13.3 Here's the quicker one. 109 kmh, Kumble sends down a rocket and Hameed is just a little too late on that. The stumps are rearranged and Kumble now has Hameed five times in the series 44/1
    13.6 And another! Younis plays a loose shot, he looks to work the ball to the on side but only manages to punch the ball right back to Kumble. That's two wickets in the over and the crowd suddenly finds its voice 44/2
    31.4 short ball dragged down, it's quick, Faisal goes for the pull, the ball goes off the top edge straight up in the air and Ishant Sharma settles under the catch. Another one for Kumble and Pakistan wobble 144/4
    32.6 Now Yuvraj gets one through. Happy Birthday son, that's a big wicket. This is the arm ball, the one that comes in with the angle. Misbah cannot get bat down anywhere near in time and the stumps are broken. Another one gone! 148/6
    31.5 And another! Kumble sends down a quick one on the line of the stumps, the ball just moves away enough to beat the bat and flattens the off stump. Akmal is gone first ball and Kumble's bowling seam up is doing the trick for India on this pitch full of cracks 144/5
    not out
    34.2 And another! Yuvraj Singh has got another one to sneak through. On the off stump, it keeps low, the ball does not turn at all and just comes in with the arm. The off stump is knocked back. Arafat goes and India are pumped up now 154/7
