    6.4 bowled'm! good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, hint of in swing, almost similar to the delivery that Sehwag hammered for four previously but this time Sehwag plays down the wrong line and the ball crashes into the stumps, Anderson with the breakthrough! 27/1
    22.5 Collingwood nets the big fish! short and wide from Collingwood, Dravid goes back and cuts it hard, the ball doesn't come off the wicket as quickly as Dravid expected, the ball takes the inside edge of the bat and rearranges the woodwork behind. That's a big wicket for England, Dravid was looking in good nick and looked good for a big score! 105/2
    26.5 and gone! good length delivery outside the off stump, Pathan drives off the front-foot and ends up hitting it straight to Collingwood at backward point, soft dismissal, crucial wicket this 130/3
    47.4 Flintoff strikes again! good length delivery outside the off stump, Yuvraj comes down the track, gets too close to the ball and ends up chipping it in the air towards the cover region, Collingwood moves across quickly and takes it cleanly - everything that has a beginning has an end! 273/5
    27.3 Plunkett strikes! good length delivery outside the off stump, hint of away swing, Kaif drives away from his body, ball shapes away just enough to kiss the outside edge and goes straight to Jones behind the stumps, Kaif's bad run continues! - India four down and in trouble here. 131/4
    49.3 bowled'm! excellent yorker, Raina is bit late on it, ball hit the toe and clips the off stump, Flintoff gets one more to his name. 288/6

    2.6 gone! good length delivery outside the off stump, was the slower ball and Strauss is sucked into the drive, ball clips the outside edge and goes straight to Dhoni behind the stumps, Pathan strikes early, India off to a good start 8/1
    18.5 RUN OUT! defended stretching forward and the ball rolls away well in front of point, Prior takes off for a single but Flintoff is not interested, terrible mix-up and Prior is stranded, Patel moves across from point and flicks the ball to the keeper, 78/4
    6.4 gone!! a slower delivery did the trick, this one was a 73 mph off-cutter from outside off, Blackwell, plays a off drive away from his body, there's a big gap between the bat and pad and the ball manages to squeeze in between 27/2
    10.5 OUT: Pathan strikes again and once again it's the slower delivery that gets him the wicket! bit fuller and angling across the right-hander, Shah is foxed by the change of pace and drive goes straight to Yuvraj Singh at backward point 47/3
    20.2 and Powar strikes! tossed up on the stumps, Flintoff goes down on one knee and slogs it away straight down the throat of Sehwag at deep midwicket, that's a big wicket - England five down and looking straight down the barrel here! 83/5
    45.1 tossed up on the stumps, Collingwood comes down the track and chips it away on the leg side, Raina sprints in from deep midwicket and takes a good catch on the move, end of a phenomenal innings - well played Collingwood! 223/8
    25.5 OUT: and gone! tossed up and turning in, Solanki gets forward and chips it straight to Yuvraj Singh at short midwicket, again the slowness of the track doing the damaged, Solanki was bit early into the shot and he failed to keep it down 100/6
    42.3 gone! good length delivery on the middle and leg stump line, Jones lofts it away towards deep backward square leg, Sehwag nicely settles under it in the deep and that's Pathan's fourth wicket of the match 205/7
