    0.1 Agarkar strikes first ball, an identical dismissal to the Cuttack game, a virtual replay really, Agarkar pitches that ball around the off stump, it straightens back into Gayle who hardly moves hiw feet, the ball thuds into the pad first before hitting the bat and Billy Bowden says that's out, he's got it right too 0/1
    12.2 what a catch! Brillant reflexes from Dravid at first slip. That was bowled on off stump, Smith went hard at it and tried to defend, the ball takes a thick edge and flies quickly to Dravid at slip who stretches out his right hand and plucks a sharp catch 92/3
    2.4 Agarkar has another! Poor shot from Morton who fished at a wide one that was swinging away from him, his feet stayed rooted to the spot and he feathered a nick through to Karthik 27/2
    33.3 the Indians appeal for caught behind, Samuels fended at that outside off stump and got a thick edge, it flew low, very low, to Karthik who moved to his right initally, the edge flew to his left and he stuck out his glove and took it inches off the ground, another sharp reflex catch, the umpires discuss whether it carried and Bowden tells Shastri that it has 219/4
    40.6 Lara tries to do it a third time but this time he miscues it and sends it high in the air, Robin Uthappa gets under it at cover and takes a well-judged but easy catch, Lara leaves the ground to loud cheers 257/5
    42.4 tossed up on off stump, Simmons pushes forward and gets beaten by the flight, the ball hits the pad and glove and goes to Uthappa at short leg, another one down 265/7
    41.6 finally Sreesanth has something to smile about, Bravo tries to run one thats too close to him down to third man and steers it to Raina at slip who fumbles it a little but manages it to hang on 261/6
