    0.5 The middle stump has gone for a walk. It landed on a length, around the off stump before jagging back in. Cook pushed forward to defend but his bat came outside the line as he was beaten by the nip-backer. 0/1
    3.1 A fatal upper-cut. It was banged in short, just outside the off stump, Prior shaped to cut it over point but was hurried on by the extra pace and the ball flew to Powar at third man. I thought I heard a sigh of relief. It must have come from Robin Singh, the fielding coach. 14/2

    5.5 Would you believe it? Bell has shouldered arms and the off stump has been pegged back. It landed on a length, just outside off stump and moved in. Bell, who has been playing shot-a-ball so far, suddenly went strokeless. He shaped to leave it and to his horror, the ball went on to crash into the off stump. 35/3
    14.4 Done in by the short-pitched delivery. Pietersen falls. Agarkar dug it short and outside off, Pietersen tried to pull from there but could only balloon it to square leg. Agarkar gets his third wicket. Indians think that Pietersen is susceptible to the short-pitched one and it has paid off here. 81/4
    23.5 India have effected a run-out. Even Robin Singh must be pleasantly surprised. That's a huge wicket too. Collingwood is gone. It was tossed-up, outside off stump and Bopara pushed to point. Bopara didn't want the run, Collingwood wanted it and he pressed on. But Bopara's hesitation slowed him down a touch , RP Singh swooped on the ball and fired in a throw to Dhoni who whipped the bails off, with Collingwood out of his crease. It was refered upstairs and verdict was out. 114/7
    16.3 Agarkar takes out Flintoff. Big wicket. Full in length, just outside the off stump, Flintoff goes hard at it and ends up scooping it to Yuvraj at point. Agarkar is having quite a evening. This is his fourth wicket. 95/5
    21.2 Loopy flighted delivery, lands outside off stump, drifts away a touch, sucking Shah into a forward prod. The ball turns in, takes the inside-edge and bobs off the pad to short-leg. Powar has struck with his second delivery and England have lost their sixth wicket. 110/6
