    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
