    2.1 they had it coming.... Sreesanth pitches it around the offstump and the extra bit of bounce squares up Arunkumar who attempts a square cut, the edge flies to Jayawardene who takes the catch above his waist, there was quite a bit swishing outside off before this and this dismissal was inevitable 4/1

    5.3 Chawla strikes back! The ball dips in on off and middle and shoots through a little low, Kohli goes back to the wrong delivery and the ball skids through and hits the offstump, Chawla gets on his knee and punches the air 49/3
    4.6 Misbah why do these things always happen to you?? Sreesanth gets this one to nip back in sharply, Misbah goes back and across a little too far and trods onto his stumps before pushing it to the offside, how unlucky, initially nobody noticed what had happened and then.... 36/2
    10.1 outstanding return catch! Chawla gives it air on middle, White backs away a little and tries to slog that over deep midwicket, he fails to read the length and hence gets a thick top edge which sails towards midwicket, Chawla runs backwards and hangs onto it, he tumbles after taking it 74/4

    14.6 Pathan fires in the quicker one on the pads, Dravid tries to whip it across the line but gets beaten for pace, the ball deflects off his pads and hits the offstump 102/5
    19.5 pushes a yorker down to long-on, they take a chance with Chawla's throw at long-on and Boucher is struggling to make his ground, Kaul whips off the bails and the third umpire takes his time on that, Boucher is just centimeters short of his ground 139/8
    17.2 he foxes him completely with a slower ball, Sreesanth bowls the slow legcutter, Praveen makes room and advances down the track, the ball goes through straight and hits the top of offstump 123/6
    18.2 he tries to get too cheeky by shuffling across his stumps before the bowler delivers, he exposes all stumps, the ball lands on a good length and flattens the offstump as Vinay Kumar misses the paddle stroke 129/7
