    39.5 got'm! good length delivery on the pads, Gayle turns it away in the air to the midwicket region, Dravid fielding at the edge of the dives across to his left and takes it cleanly, bit of a soft dismissal and an anti-climax, Agarkar rewarded from some excellent seam bowling 222/4
    13.4 gone! Short of a length, pitched outside the off stump and it held its line, if anything, and Morton moves towards the ball and has a poke at it and ends up nicking it. So a wicket falls, against the run of play. 87/1
    16.5 gone! Sarwan goes sweeping. It pitched outside the off stump, on a length, and Sarwan went down on his knee and attempts a sweep shot but misses and the ball turns in and traps him in front. 94/2
    31.2 gone! on a length, pushed across Lara who leans forward and drives it on the up to left of Kaif, at covers, who dives low to his left to catch it. Very good catch 176/3
    42.3 what a catch!! athleticism at its best! that was a good length delivery from Pathan, Chanderpaul has a swing at it, doesn't keep the ball down, the ball dies as it reaches Sehwag who is positioned on the fence, but he makes good ground, and times his dive forward to perfection, pouches the ball neatly and comes up with the ball 233/5
    44.3 driven down to long-off, take the first run quickly and think about the second, Samuels takes off for the second run, but Baugh is not too impressed, holds his ground at the striker's end, the fielder at long-off fires in a perfect throw back to Pathan who is up at the stumps, and Pathan duly whips off the bails, its bye-bye for Samuels 248/6

    9.5 Gone! got his man! bit bizaare actually! First Sehwag goes for a wild heave over the bowler but only manages to send the ball in a orbit up over mid-off, where Marlon samuels misjudges it as he goes back and doesn't get a hand on it. But here is where the Indians helped. They turn for the second run, rather Dravid comes back without any hesitation but Sehwag, who is caught ball watching, is late to get off and fails to reach the crease in time. Samuels had fired the throw straight to the keeper who took off the bails in a flash. It should have been a comfortable two, if Sehwag had not been ball watching. 56/1
    38.5 crucial blow! good length delivery on the stumps, excellent change of pace from Bravo and Dravid ends up hitting it high up towards long-on, Taylor there in the deep judges it to perfection. 209/4
    11.1 Pathan departs! short of a good length and bit wide outside the off stump, a relatively innocuous delivery, Pathan has a wild slash at it with no real footwork - thick edge and Morton at second slip sallows it cleanly, Bradshaw gets one to his name - India two down. 62/2
    17.4 Bradshaw strikes again and this time it's the slower delivery that gets him a wicket! on the middle and off stump line, Yuvraj looking to loft it over the fielder at mid-on fails to connect properly, ball spoons up towards mid-on, Samuels there back-tracks, keeps his eye on the ball and at the last moment dives full length and takes it with both hands, amazing catch! 86/3

    42.3 gone! Game on folks! Full-length delivery on the middle stump, Dhoni again takes his left foot just outside the line and whacks it towards long-on. It flew straight to the fielder there. Don't go anywhere! 233/5
