    6.4 got 'em! Munaf strikes back, fuller length this time and it's on middle and leg, that came back a bit after pitching, Butt tries to push tentatively but is rapped on the pads, huge appeal and that's given, height was an issue but the umpire thought it's striking the stumps 40/2
    1.4 he's got his man this time, good-length ball that was moving slightly away, Hafeez felt it was in the slot and tried to loft it over the infield but he's not got the timing right, that hits the inside half of the bat and pops straight to Asnodkar at mid-on. He appeared to be sent in to go after the bowling but has to go now. 7/1
    14.4 all over for Dada, scooped straight down the throat of long-on, that's a quick one outside off, Ganguly backs away but settles for a strange scoop towards long-on, straight to Kaif and Eden is silenced 95/4
    11.5 got 'em! quick offbreak that's crashed into middle stump, Hussey jumps down the ground and swings across the line but Yusuf has fired that offbreak in fast, it's gone through the big gap between bat and pad and rattled middle stump. Yusuf is ecstatic 71/3
    17.3 well he's got Das with an outstanding yorker, Tanvir comes round the wicket and whips the yorker in with a quick-arm action, he swings the yorker into middle and leg and Das is late in bringing his bat down, Tanvir's celebration is unusually animated, relieved after the drop catch no doubt 118/5
    17.6 caught! Tanvir offers Shukla a knee-high full toss, that's a terrible ball but Shukla mis-hits the pull straight to Asnodkar at deep backward square leg, he takes the catch easily 123/6

    18.3 short and pulled away from outside off, now then, this could be a run-out, they think of the second but Agarkar is short here, super flat throw from Ravindra Jadeja and the keeper whips the bails off quickly, that's sloppy from Agarkar - he's looking at the ball as he's going back and dives from far outside the crease. He's well short there. 129/7
    19.3 holds it back a bit, tucks him for room, Gul swings hard again but a thick top-edge flies straight to Kaif at long-on, that's as easy as it gets for him, third wicket for Tanvir 142/8

    5.5 what a catch! Kolkata on a roll here, Gul has struck again, he's bowled one way down leg and Smith has tried to flick it past the keeper, a faint edge but Saha has dived full-length to his right to pluck off a sensational one-handed take, what a moment, take a bow Saha 42/3
    1.6 that's the breakthrough, swinging away from Asnodkar and he's thrown his bat at it wildly, tries to smash it through the covers but only manages an outside edge to the keeper, important wicket for Ishant, Asnodkar can be dangerous 16/1
    5.2 soft dismissal there, short of a length and Tanvir has holed out to mid-on, tried to go over the infield but can only manage a skier to mid-off, Butt is waiting there and it completes an all Pakistani dismissal ... Tanvir c Butt b Gul 42/2

    9.5 bowled him! Look at Ganguly run in celebration! He's sprinting and his team-mates are charging to mob him! The length is good just outside off stump, Watson comes forward and tries to hit across the line towards the leg side, the ball nips into the right-hander and crashes into off stump after Watson misses 69/4
