    42.5 this match is alive! Zaheer has flipped it on its head again. What a delivery! Searing yorker, swinging in late and it's crashed into Strauss's boot in front of middle. Ends an innings of the highest highest quality but will it be in vain? 281/4
    9.3 Hello Hello! This is a Youtube moment from Munaf. KP had smashed a full delivery back to Munaf, who put his hands out, to catch and more to save his face i reckon, even as he slipped to the ground. The ball popped up of his palm and gravity took it right back to Munaf, now sitting on the ground, who puts his left hand up and pouches it very calmly. KP can't believe it. The crowd love it. And for some reason, Munaf even throws in an appeal! 68/1
    16.4 Chawla strikes! It was so plump Trott pretty much walked. Went back to play across the line, should have been forward, missed it and India have their second 111/2

    42.4 Powerplays always cause trouble and Bell has gifted his wicket away! Struggling with cramp perhaps, he's tried to clear the field with a real heave, skews it off the edge and it loops to mid-off. Wild celebrations, this is far from over 281/3
    44.3 Zaheer is the man! Collingwood down the track to try and swing to leg but Zaheer slipped it in slower, such smart bowling, gripped off the pitch as well and pegged back off stump. Incredible spell this. India are favourites again! Is there are influential player than Zaheer? Take him out the India attack and it's threadbare. Good luck Michael Yardy... 285/5
    45.2 The crowd erupts! Harbhajan has Prior now, the light fading for England. Prior tried to mow this out of the ground over midwicket, Harbhajan always gets that extra bounce though and it found an edge and soared high in the air for midwicket to pouch 289/6
    47.3 Yardy is out, and England must be as well now. Strauss has his head in his hand, he deserved more. Yardy tried to flip this over short fine leg but couldn't get enough on the slower ball and it spooned straight to the man 307/7

    48.6 Chawla strikes back! One way and another this match is going! Bresnan tried again to to find the boundary, he had to, but it's quicker and flatter and through him onto off stump 325/8
