    28.3 driven down to long-off, Anderson moves across in the deep and cuts off the boundary with a good diving effort and fires in a long throw, Uthappa coming back for the second takes it lightly, throw comes in at the keeper's end and the bails are off in a flash, Uthappa was almost home but he failed to ground his bat! poor piece of cricket from the young man and India lose their first wicket! 166/1
    29.1 good length delivery, hint of reverse swing and Dravid gets hit on the pad, loud appeal and up goes the finger, probably missing leg but umpire Jayaprakash was convinced, India two down! 166/2
