    2 full and straight, Ganguly plays and misses, rapped on the pads in front of the stumps, loud shout for lbw, given, that looked pretty out too depite Ganguly's obvious show of dissent 5/1
    15.5 full and on the off, defended to the on side 59/3
    2.5 back of a length just outside the off, big cut shot played far away from the body, that ball was not there for the cut either, straight back onto the stumps and that is the end of Laxman 9/2

    17.5 just short of a length and outside the off, Badani comes down the track and lofts the ball, the southpaw can't quite get hold of it, the ball goes up in the air and McMillan settles under it 66/4
    31 back of a length outside the off, played hard at and nothing more than an edge result, the faint tickle goes through to Parore and Yuvraj is gone 111/6
    33.3 full and on the off, flatter as well, guided to point, Sodhi charges out to the middle of the pitch, turns and sees his quite a way outside the crease, a good return from the slose in fielder puts paid to Sodhi, another run out 114/8
    31.4 full and on the off, Dighe defends toqwards point and sets off for a non existent single, when he reaches about the midway of the pitch he realises his folly and turns back - too late, the bails are off 112/7
    36.1 well flighted, delightfully pitched up and on the stumps, Harbhajan thinks that is so easy to play, a Harris special that, right through the gate, kissing the top of the middle stump, and another one bites the dust 122/9
