    12.1 and Strauss goes too, short of a length on off stump, Strauss pushes hard at it on the front foot, trying to play through the line, the ball moves a touch away from the left hander, gets a thick outside edge and straight to Dravid at second slip 27/4
    3.2 Munaf strikes! that hit Bell above the knee roll after cutting back into him from just outside off stump, the Indians went up in spontaneous appeal but Harper took his time before giving it out, it was perhaps a touch too high 10/1
    4.5 Pathan gets his first wicket! The ball pitched on middle and straightened, Flintoff tried to get across and play it on the leg side, he missed, the ball hit him on the knee roll and that's pretty plumb 11/2
    7.3 the third batsman also falls to an lbw. That pitched on middle, held it's line, Yardy poked forward and played down the wrong line, the ball hit him just below the knee roll in front of middle and off, umpire Harper had little hesitation this time in giving it out 17/3
    18.5 that's a huge wicket for India! No footwork at all from Pietersen, just stands in his crease and pushes away from his body at one that was short of a length and just outside off stump, it takes the edge and first slip accepts the easiest of chances 55/5
    30.2 Powar gets the nod from Simon Taufel this time. Collingwood comes forward - walks forward rather - and Powar again holds back the length and Collingwood tries to work it to the on side and must have got an inside edge on to pads before it popped up for Dhoni to hold a dolly. 104/6
    36.3 tossed up outside off, Dalrymple comes down the track and drives but the ball doesn't turn in all that much and he ends up going inside the line. The outside edge is smartly held by Dravid at slip. 124/9
    31.5 Chris Read tries to counterattack his way out of trouble and instead England now slip into deeper crisis. He went down the track and lofted a flighted delivery but got under it a bit too much and it sailed straight to Pathan at long-on 107/7
    34.3 Harbhajan takes a damn good catch to end Mahmood's resistance. Powar tossed it up, Mahmood couldn't resist and flung his bat. It sailed high towards long-on, Harbhajan ran ahead, then judged that the ball is behind him, turned behind, took a few steps to his left and stretched out his hand. The ball landed in his palms. He had almost got perilously close to the ropes. 119/8

    36.6 Powar makes the stop on his follow-through and under-arms it to disturb the bails. Anderson, at the non-striker's end, is caught just outside the crease. 125/10

    1.3 Harmison breaks the pattern! A wicket this time. Full and well outside off, Sehwag reaches for it but only manages to a thick outside edge to first slip. 18/1
    18.1 that kept low, dead straight and hit Tendulkar very low on the pad even though he was jumping up to play it, pretty simple decision for umpire Harper to make, Tendulkar goes, done in by the low bounce 98/4
    10.1 Pietersen, who dropped a few catches in Ashes, pulls off a stunner. Pathan drives on-the-up to a length delivery outside off and Peitersen, at short cover, jumps up, both hands outstretched and comes down with the ball. 68/2
    10.4 this time it is Anderson who celebrates Diwali . A short of length delivery outside off stump and Dravid pushes at it, away from his body, and the outside edge is snaffled in the slips. 72/3

    26.3 that's the end of that! another wild swing and this time the ball goes low towards midwicket, Collingwood dives forward and takes a fantastic low catch, Dhoni gave it everything but failed to get under the ball 119/5
    26.5 Dalrymple gets another one! bowled from round the stumps and close to the off stump line, Raina pushes forward to defend, ball clips the inside edge - crashes into the pad and rolls into the stumps, India are six down - is there a twist to this ending? 119/6
