    10.6 Munaf strikes again. Two in two. It landed on a good length, around the off stump and slanted away, Cook has a tentative poke and that proves fatal. Gone. 76/2
    10.5 Munaf gets his man. Another one that kicks up from short of length, Prior makes room by moving to the leg side and tries to flat-bat it but ends up skying it high towards mid off. Dravid comes under it and had to wait for a while before gravity took charge and took a well-judged catch. Munaf has been impressive and has broken through for India. 76/1
    41.3 goes round the stumps and gets his man. Bell charges down the track again, backing to the legside in the process, but is bit cramped up by the line - outside leg- and lofts straight to Munaf Patel at long on 240/7

    21.2 Piyush Chawla cleans up Pietersen with a one that didn't spin much. Pietersen can't believe it. It landed on the middle and off and went on almost straight. Pietersen anticipated a bit more turn and got his bat down in an angle, outside the line of the delivery. The ball threaded the bat and pad gap, slid in, brushed the inner half of the front pad and crashed into the off stump. Chawla is over the moon, Pietersen looks dazed. 134/3
    29.1 Googly does the trick. Collingwood skips down the track and plays all around a googly that landed on the off and middle line. The ball breaks in to brush the inner half of the front pad before going on to hit the stumps. Good spin bowling from both ends has led to this dismissal. 176/4
    30.5 Powar entices Flintoff to his doom. Loopy flighted delivery on the off stump and Flintoff shapes for a huge lofted shot. But the ball dips rapidly on him and his attemped heave goes straight to Agarkar at deep midwicket 185/5
    37.5 Munaf traps Bopara. Dead plumb. Full in length, on the middle stump line, Bopara, again, tries to whip it across the line but ends up playing all around it and is struck in front. 220/6
    48.4 Mascarenhas's breezy cameo ends. Death by aggression. He tries to pull a short-of-length delivery over midwicket but ends up lobbing it to midwicket. And then they were two. 299/8
