    31.4 there's the breakthrough, outside off stump, Strauss goes for a forcing shot through the covers, the edge flies to Laxman at second slip and he takes a comfortable catch...Strauss again falls after doing the hard work and India have their wicket 79/1
    34.1 caught, at leg gully! Kumble bowls a full delivery on middle and leg, Cook flicks and the ball flies off the middle of the bat to Laxman who takes a sharp low catch at leg gully, big big wicket 86/2
    60.4 the breakthrough, wide and slightly short, Vaughan flashes at it, gets an edge and Dhoni does the rest 152/3
    88.6 caught! Sreesanth gets Pietersen, a lapse of concentration perhaps after the century, the ball pitches short of a length outside off stump, Pietersen waits on the back foot and drives hard at it, the thick outside edge flies straight to Karthik at first slip, an easy catch, what a big wicket that is for India 289/5
    84.1 lbw! The new ball does the trick again! It pitches just outside off stump and angles into Collingwood who is lazy in moving his feet and gets struck plumb on the back foot in front of off stump, timely breakthrough for India 266/4

    105.2 a moment of madness ... Bell plays a premeditated sweep, he is as far forward as he could have been but it is full and straight and Steve Bucknor has no doubts 363/6
