    5.3 caught by the local boy! Boucher tries to pull Fernando, the length is short but the ball stops on Boucher who plays the shot too early and mis-hits it high in the air to Uthappa who holds a simple catch between midwicket and mid-on 35/1
    7.1 Fernando picks up his third! Goswami tries to loft a good length delivery down the ground, he gets the direction right but not the distance, the ball goes in the air between mid-on and mid-off, Uthappa goes for the catch from mid-off and so does Nehra from mid-on, there's a collision between the two but Nehra gets to the ball before Uthappa and holds the catch, well taken 39/3
    5.6 caught! Misbah's failed on his birthday! Fernando pitches the ball short of a length and seams it away from the right-hander, Misbah stays on the back foot and pokes feebly at the ball, he gets an outside edge that goes to first slip where Tendulkar takes a comfortable catch at stomach height 36/2
    13.1 bowled him! Smith pitches on a good length on off stump and angles it into middle, Dravid stays in his crease, makes room, and tries to steer the ball from his stumps to third man, he misses completely and Smith hits 82/6
    11.4 caught! It's that man Fernando again! White tries to loft a length ball over deep midwicket, he doesn't get under it and therefore can't get the necessary elevation to clear the boundary, he hits it in the air to deep midwicket where Fernando runs in and holds a low catch, White had played three dot balls and the pressure told on him 74/4
    12.2 he's gone first ball! Nehra delivers an outstanding ball, he pitches it short of a length and gets it to rise sharply into Kohli who tries to run the ball down to third man, the ball gets far too big on him and he is cramped for room as well, Takawale takes the edge comfortably 76/5
    13.4 Smith's got another one! He pitches the ball around off stump and slants it into the right-hander, Akhil moves across his stump, gets down on one knee and tries to play a cheeky sweep, he misses and gets hit in front of middle, that's plumb and AV Jayaprakash raises the finger in a flash 83/7
    17.6 Praveen's run out! He backs away and tries to hit a short of a length ball down the ground, he misses and then sets off for the bye a bit too late, Takawale lobs the ball to Fernando who gets back to his stumps calmly and breaks the stumps with Praveen well short 122/9
    17.5 he's caught this time! Vinay tries to clear long-on once again but this time he didn't get under the ball, he hits it straight to Uthappa at long on 122/8
