    65.3 bowled'm! tossed up in the rough outside the off stump and the ball turns across sharply, Dravid plays down the wrong line, ball turns away just enough to beat the outside edge and the off stump is pegged back, another classic dismissal and that's Panesar's third wicket of the match 168/2
    72.1 Flintoff strikes! full and on the pads, bowled from round the stumps and coming in with the angle, Pathan chips it straight to Strauss at midwicket who was placed at the edge of the circle, Pathan's little cameo comes to a tame end. 215/4
    76.3 short of a good length delivery outside the off stump and Dhoni flat bats it straight to Strauss at long-off, hit it too well and the ball carried all the way to the fielder in the deep, Harmison with the much needed breakthrough 252/5
