    15.5 Finn has got his man. Gambhir has had a patchy innings, and finally one goes to hand. It;s the slower offcutter again, Gambhir looks to make room and go over extra cover, but all he manages is a healthy edge.The ball, though, is dying on Kieswetter, who dives forward to complete the catch 119/3

    2.4 Finn has made the necessary correction. Bowls full and hits timber. Slightly fuller than a length ball, on off, holding its line slightly, Pathan has driven all around it, and he and his off stump have gone for a walk. That certainly seems back a little to hold its line against the angle 24/1
    10.3 the pressure from Swann has finally drawn a false shot. Kohli gets too close to this delivery, and goes towards midwicket. Because he is so close to the pitch of the ball, he doesn't get the elevation, and picks out deep midwicket 81/2

    19.4 lovely tag-team work. Slower ball, Dhoni gets more height than distance, but this is still taking Butler with it over the long-on boundary. Butler catches it inches inside, knows he is going to step over with the momentum, and lobs it back in before doing so. And it turns out to be an easy catch for Hales, who has also run for the catch 166/4

    8.1 Oh England. They are coming apart against spin again. Chawla tosses up, gets a legbreak to turn for a change, Kieswetter drives on the up. He is nowhere close to the ball, and has allowed it enough time to turn away and take a thick edge. Sharp catch by Kohli at slip 51/5
    0.6 timber. Slogs at thin air. Pathan pitches it up, swings it just enough, and Hales has swung at it in an ungainly manner. No contact made, and the middle stump is flattened out 2/1
    2.4 That doesn't look right. Just doesn't. Short ball, no swing, hits him high on the thigh, and he is given. Possibly pitched outside leg, possible edge onto it, possibly going over the stumps. That had too many doubts with it. It's a brave decision all right, and it is right too. Pitched just inside the line, stayed low, no edge, hitting the top of leg 18/2
    5.2 We've been expecting you, Mr Singh. And is he fired up? Bowls the quick arm ball, Morgan goes back to cut. Poor choice. Like patting a burning cat. That has squeezed under his bat to knock the middle stump out. Harbhajan is pumped 39/3
    6.6 poor batting. Doesn't read the googly, goes for the big slow sweep, leaves him a gate big enough for a train to squeeze through, and is bowled. Fair to stay Jonny is not quite as comfortable against spin as he is against pace 42/4
    11.1 not sure I have seen worse batting against spin ever. They are making up their mind what shot to play even before the bowler is starting to run towards the stumps. Buttler backs away early, Harbhajan stays on a length and just outside off, and then breaks through under the bat, which is playing a nothing shot 60/7
    9.6 England are falling apart faster than a cookie under Steve Waugh's book. Bresnan might well have read the Hindi scrip better than he has read spin tonight. Finally brings out the sweep, and limply top-edges it to deep square 54/6
    12.1 Respite? What respite? Dinda bowls short, Broad pulls, and finds deep midwicket to perfection. He could have picked that fielder out had it been a nail in haystack 60/9
    11.4 oh what is happening here? A procession. They are batting as if wearing those glasses you get at 3d movies. No attempt to read spin, although you can't blame Swann when the top order has failed miserably. Dances down the wicket, walks past a doosra, and is stumped by a mile 60/8

    14.4 it's all over. No third umpire required. Finn comes down the track, gets an inside edge and charges off. Short fine leg fires in the throw to catch Dernbach short 80/10
