    0.6 Gotcha! Zaheer removes Pitcher. Brought this one in after taking the previous delvieries away. Landed on a length, around off, bent back in a touch and Pitcher had a stab at it. Gets a inside-edge but that proves fatal. The ball rolls back to the stumps and he is a goner. 0/1
    6.3 Crash! Outerbridge is cleaned up! Super delivery. Landed full in length, just outside off stump and cut back in. Outerbridge leant forward, jabbed at it but the ball evaded the defensive blade, threaded the bat and pad gap and crashed into the top of the middle stump. Zaheer has taken out the openers. 18/2
    13.5 given out lbw. full in length, bounces and Bordern shapes to play it across the line and is hit in front of off stump. The height was the concern and it would have gone over but Aleem Dar doesn't concur. Raises the fatal finger and Bermuda are three down. 47/3
    not out
    16.4 Kumble gets a lbw. Doesn't surprise me. Romaine got his front pad way across and then had to play around it and by that time the skidder had gone on to rap him in front of middle and leg. 57/4
    18.3 Castled! Tucker walks down the track and tries to slog Kumble over midwicket. It's a googly and there's a huge, gaping space between bat and pad. Ball sneaks through and crashes into the stumps. Kumble gets his second as Bermuda move closer to the precipice 63/5
    29.2 Minors falls after a stiff resistance. Agarkar gets a wicket. Minors wanted to work a length-delivery on the middle stump line to the on side, gets a leading edge and presents a dolly at mid-off. 106/6
    29.4 Double strike by Agarkar. Banged in short and he shapes to pull but instead pops it towards cover. Uthappa runs in, dives forward to take it very close to the ground. Did it touch the ground? The batsman thought so and stood his ground. The umpires confer and gave it out. Was the fingers underneath the ball or did it touch the grass? I think it touched the ground, Ian Bishop, on air, thinks the fingers were underneath. He has played Test match cricket, I have played gully cricket. 106/7
    31.2 Just when people are slamming him, Agarkar gets another victim. Triple strike! Pitches on the off stump line and hits the off stump. Hurdle's bat comes inside the line and he is cleaned up. 110/8
    41.3 Tendulkar removes the rock. Leverock. A flighted legbreak, short in length, outside off stump that turns ever so slowly and Leverock couldn't resist the urge to cut, and nicks it behind. Dhoni makes no mistake. Leverock as he walked out of the arena, acknowledged the crowd. Bermuda are nine down. Hemp might be left stranded. 154/9
    43.1 And he finishes it off with a lbw. Typical Kumble. Full in length, on the off and middle and it slides in to catch Jones in front of the middle stump. 156/10
