    26.5 Monty strikes! The crowd goes wild at Leeds. Ganguly comes down the pitch, doesn't quite get to the pitch of the ball as it dips late. Ganguly goes through with the stroke, a bit heave over midwicket, anyway, and doesn't hit it well enough. Alastair Cook is the fielder just a few feet inside the ropes and he settles under the catch. That's another big wicket and Monty has struck in just his first over! 150/2
    19.4 Gone!That's the wicket England wanted. Tendulkar gone for 71. Jon Lewis finally gets one. It's short of a length, outside the off and Tendulkar tries to open the face of the bat and run the ball down to third man. He only manages an edge and Matt Prior standing up takes a really good catch 116/1
    41.4 Gone! Straight after his half-century Gambhir goes. Broad bangs the ball in short and Gambhir goes for the pull. He's not in good position and is late on the shot. The ball goes high up in the air and the fielder on the fence between midwicket and square-leg takes the catch. That was taken by Andrew Gale, the substitute, who is on the field for Ravi Bopara who injured his thumb trying to field off his own bowling 244/3
    44.3 Another one! Monstrous hit from Yuvraj. He picks the ball up from outside the off and hits it really hard. But that goes high rather than far and into the wind as well. It hangs in the air a touch and comes down short. James Anderson is the fielder on the midwicket fence and settles under the catch. Important wicket for England but a good innings from Yuvraj 266/4
    48.4 Edged and taken. That was full and outside the off, Dhoni has a hard dash at that, the ball flies off the outside edge and Matt Prior is equal to the task, diving to the right and hanging on to a sharp catch. Dhoni goes and England get some relief 311/5
    49.3 Full, outside the off, Karthik has walked very far outside his stumps and tried to paddle the ball along. He misses, Dravid goes through for the bye but is well short of his crease as the throw from Prior hits the stumps. End of a good innings from Dravid 318/6

    3.1 fullish, outside the off, a good line to the left-handed batsman, Cook is forced to play at it, the ball does just enough to take the outside edge, Dhoni goes down to his left and hangs onto the catch. Agarkar is fired up here as he celebrates the fall of the first English wicket 7/1
    13.5 there's the wicket, courtesy a brilliant piece of work from Dhoni! Ganguly pitches full, the ball beats Prior's forward defensive and Dhoni, in an instant, whips off the bails even as Prior completes his shot and falls over, what a stumping! Excellent bowling as well. Two balls came in to the batsman and this one just went away. Some much relief for India as they were at the receiving end of some serious treatment from Prior and Bell 97/2
    15.5 The real big one goes! Ian Bell has taken a real shine to India's bowlers and he's gone here ... Ganguly probes away outside the off and Bell tries to work the ball away down to third-man with an angled bat. There's a thick edge and Dhoni has taken a sharp catch 104/4
    14.6 Big wicket! fullish, outside the off, angled away from the batsman, Pietersen drives without moving his feet, the ball has done just enough to beat the middle of the bat and take the outside edge. Dhoni does enough behind the stumps, diving across to his right and taking the catch. Pietersen's gone for a duck and India are pumped up. That is a big wicket 102/3

    25.5 And once again Powar strikes in his very first over! This one is the drifter that just goes away with the arm. Shah does not pick it at all and plays for the turn. There's a thin edge and once again it's Dhoni who snaps it up. India might be ragged in the field but Dhoni is doing a really good job behind the stumps. 145/5
    31.6 nicely done! Powar tosses it up gently again, holding it back in the air a second late and getting the ball to dip sharply and Bopara, looking to flick it away, closes the bat face and the leading-edge lobs up to the right of the non-striker and Powar, moving behind Collingwood, does very well to take a simple catch, as he would have been unsighted for a brief while 193/6
    32.6 and Chawla too joins in the fun, tossing one up a touch quicker and fuller on off stump and Broad can only flick it into the waiting hands of Karthik at midwicket 196/7
    38.4 Another! And Dhoni equals a record for maximum dismissals. Lewis tries one of those across-the-line heaves but can only get a top edge. The ball goes very high in the air and swirls around for an eternity in the strong Leeds winds. Dhoni calls for the catch and appears to get under it. In the end, though, the ball is evading him and he needs to dive to take the catch. He's held on, though, and that's now six dismissals for him in the innings 240/8
