    22.2 got him! A breakthrough for England at last as Ganguly tries to lift Broad over the infield but can only slap it straight to Pietersen at cover 150/1
    25.6 got him! Brilliant catch from Collingwood. Tendulkar stepped outside leg and tried to loft Monty over mid-off, but he didn't get any elevation in the stroke. Collingwood, lurking at mid-off, got both hands to it and pouched a very low, excellent catch 156/2
    40.2 Panesar takes the catch! Huge skier to long-on and Gambhir, giving himself room, backs away but holes out just short of what would have been a fine half-century. Panesar watched that all the way and pointed his finger in the air in serious salute 234/5
    34.2 there's the breakthrough, and what a wicket for England. The ball stops on the pitch and Yuvraj can only pop a return catch back to Mascarenhas, who reacts well in his follow through. He looked fairly startled by that catch, but a vital moment in the game 209/3
    35.5 another huge wicket! And what scalp to get for your first international wicket. Dravid gets a leading edge as he tries to through the leg side and Collingwood takes a fine, low catch diving forward from would have been a wide, down the leg side, if Dravid had left it, but what a day Shah is having 216/4
    47.6 bowled him - Dhoni shuffling over to off to try to sweep it round, but the ball nutmegged him and appeared to get a thin bobble off the inside of his left pad - I'll confirm after replays 294/6
    not out
    48.6 gone! Going for the two, Anderson did well to pick up the return from Bell and pick out the striker's end with a direct hit 307/7
    49.2 yorker, dug up there and Broad gets him with a piece of intelligent cricket - how did he keep his cool there? - by beating Zaheer in the sprint back to the non-striker's end and held the ball in his hands all the way 309/8
