    33 tossed up full and bit wide outside the off stump and Dravid stretches, goes after it and gets the edge to Jadhav at gully. 92/3
    35.3 short ball pulled straight into short leg, the ball deflects to short midwicket, a mix-up, the fielder picks up the ball and throws it to Ramesh Powar, who breaks the stumps, third umpire is called for and the red light flashes as Suresh is short of the crease at the non-strikers end. 94/4
    54.3 loose shot by Karthik, Trivedi angles it wide of the offstump and lures Karthik forward, he's tempted to chase that and the ball travels off the face of the bat to Jaffer at wide first slip, good field placement there 133/5
    59.3 pushes it a little quicker through the air, Yadav shapes to flick it away behind square on the on side but he finds Kedar Jadhav at forward short-leg who takes a sharp catch 148/6
    60 he flights it on the off stump and gets a bit of turn, the bat's slightly behind the pad as he shapes to defend, the ball appears to clip his pad before lobbing to silly point, Erasmus gives him out caught but Ashwin hangs around at the crease before walking, I need to see another replay of that 148/7
    70.2 Nayar strikes early in his spell, the ball lands wide outside off and Jakati is tempted in to chasing it, he tamely glides it to second slip, what Jakati probably failed to see was the packed slip cordon, West are bowling to a plan here 191/8
    72.4 terrible mixup, Sreesanth works it down to deep square-leg, he sets off, then hesitates but goes ahead with the run as Badri was already halfway down the track, Thaker throws to the bowler 195/9
    73.2 South are bowled out just minutes away from lunch, he bowls it on the line of the off stump and draws Vinay forward, the outside edge falls safely in to Jaffer's hands at first slip 199/10

    31.4 length ball outside off, Parthiv comes down the track and punches it to mid-off 145/2
    8.1 Sreesanth strikes, the ball pitches on middle and leg and rises a bit, Jaffer's beaten for pace and the ball hits him a little high on the pad and slightly wide of the leg stump, Erasmus gives him out, not too sure if that would have hit the stumps but another replay will help 35/1
    43.2 Tragedy! Bowled flat outside leg stump, no spin there, Rahane tries to work it away fine, gets a thin edge to the keeper who goes up straightaway. 196/3
    40.2 tame dismissal there, M Suresh finally strikes, tossed up outside off stump, seemingly harmless delivery, takes it on the full and just pushes it back to the bowler. A lazy drive there, he could have hit that anywhere 182/2
    52.2 gone!! Wicket at the death! Full outside off stump and a hint of away movement, Thaker goes for the drive, gets a thick outside edge and Dravid snaps it easily at first slip 228/4
    70.1 Nayar's gone, he was looking to reach his half-century with a six over long-on, he has pulled off that shot successively a couple of times but this time it goes straight down the throat of Badrinath at the short midwicket as he doesn't get the elevation he wanted 298/6
    63.3 wicked bounce for Ashwin, that gets the wicket, pitching just short of a length, Jadhav gets on the backfoot to defend, but that jumps shoulder high, and he can only glove it to Rahul Dravid at first slip 274/5

    35.2 Vijay's gone, the breakthrough West have been searching for, the ball doesn't turn as much as the others, and Vijay's attempted push towards the offside gets a nick through to the keeper 165/1
    36.5 Uthappa's gone! he tries to launch the ball over long-off, but he doesn't quite get hold of it, and it ends up as a simple catch for Siddharth Trivedi at mid-off 167/2
    62.2 finally the patience gives in, Badri steps out, looking to hit it from outside leg and over the top, he gets the elevation but is cramped for room. Powar takes a good catch at long-on boundary, keeping his balances inches inside the fence. So it's caught Powar b Pawar 288/4
    37.4 Dravid's gone! that one was an absolute shooter, that didn't rise more than a few inches off the ground, Dravid was looking to defend it off the backfoot, but that scooted under his bat to rock middle and off stumps 167/3
    71.5 thats the wicket they have been waiting for! Karthik gets his frontfoot across and wants to look the ball right into the hands of the keeper but in the bargain the right pad hits the stumps and he is out hitwicket. This wicket will certainly feature in Cricinfo XI in years to come 319/6
    69.3 the ploy works this time! Powar was plugging away at the line outside the off stump. Yadav, with no movement of his feet ends up lofting a tame catch to Pawar, who has to move to his left to take the catch at mid-off 312/5
