    9 and there is the wicket! Saini lunges forward to a delivery that was looped up by Ojha. He looks to drive and gets an outside edge back to the keeper. Gautam fumbles with the catch before taking the catch 9/1
    9.5 and there is the second wicket already! Mithun pitches it short and slows it down a touch. Dhawan is early into it and pulls it straight into the hands of Mukund at midwicket 9/2
    27.4 fuller outside the off stump. Mandeep shows poor shot selection as he goes for the drive and it ends up safely in the hands of Sumanth at point 42/4
    18.4 Vinay Kumar has this ability to move the ball both ways. This time he jags it back in and beats the defenses of Manhas. Manhas hears the rattle behind him and has to walk back 30/3
    99.1 fuller on the off stump. Dogra lofts it straight into the hands of the mid-on fielder and what an innings it has been to watch. He was looking to attack as he must have felt that there was a need for the runs and sacrifices his wicket in pursuit of them 311/9
    57.5 the change of the angle does the trick! Yashpal pokes at a ball just outside the off stump and gets the faint outside edge. Gautam does the rest 141/5
    79.2 and there's the sixth wicket! Kaul comes down the track and looks to go on the leg side. He gets a leading edge that flies high to the right of cover and Vinay Kumar takes the catch. Badrinath will be happy with the turn of the things 230/6
    86.5 Vinay dismisses him the way where he requires no help from others- Mishra is bowled. A short ball that Mishra looks to defend and gets an inside edge. Uthappa will be a relieved man after all 256/7
    97.4 on the middle stump and hits the top of off. How delightful to watch it as a bowler! He beats the outside edge of the bat and hits the top of off. He seems to be pretty angry there, Ojha. Joginder was looking to play for the straight ball and was beaten by the turn. A superb dismissal that 298/8
    106.1 and Aravind has the final laugh! After the productive last over, Narwal was trying to stretch it too far and is looking to slog it away. This time around Aravind does not stray with the line. He beats Narwal's slog and hits the middle 337/10

    20.3 and finally the breakthrough as Mukund drives away from the body and gets an outside edge to where fourth slip would have been. Clever field placements by Mishra 85/1
    25.4 and that's curtains for Uthappa! He looks to go for the pull shot of a ball that Joginder held back a touch. Uthappa goes through the shot and gets a top edge to mid-off, where Mishra does not commit any mistake and takes the catch easily 107/2
    95.3 and Badrinath is run-out again! Ishant bowls a fuller ball and Verma drives it straight back at him. Ishant drops the catch and gets some part of his hand on it as the ball is deflected onto the stumps. Badrinath is out of the crease by atleast a foot. He seemed shocked that the ball hit the stumps 374/5
    51.4 fuller ball outside the off stump. Pandey lofts it straight into the hands of Ishant at mid-off. Pity considering the bowling wasn't all that great. NArwal himself is surprised at the wicket 243/3

    86.5 finally some respite for the bowlers as the ball keeps lows and rattles the timber 362/4
    112 short of a good length and moving away from the bastman, Verma cuts in the air, Uday Kaul takes a diving catch 420/8
    99.5 finally Ishant has a wicket! Short of a good length delivery outside the off stump. Gautam gets onto the backfoot and has a defensive prod at it. Enough to get an outside edge that is taken by Dhawan by diving to his left at first slip 386/6
    101.5 and the 'Ishant-Dhawan' combine is at it again. The ball moves a touch after pitching on the good length area on the middle stump. Vinay gets back and edges it to Dhawan at first slip and the match is opening up 386/7
    119.1 good length delivery and pace cut down from the delivery. Enough to deceive Mithun. He is into his defensive push by the time the ball hits him in line with the off stump on the back pad. Reward for maintaining a good line 445/9
    132.2 flighted ball outside the off stump. Ojha looks to slog it and misses the line completely. In an attempt to slog it, he drags the backfoot forward and Kaul is quick to whip the bails off 477/10

    77 arm-ball does the trick. Kaul is looking to defend it and gets a faint outside edge back to the keeper 253/6
    77.5 and there is another wicket. Narwal looks to turn it away and gets an inside edge that's taken by the keeper. For safe measure, he flicks the bails off too. Jerling at square-leg signals for the third-umpire and Shastri raises the index finger for the catch 254/7
    86.4 and the new-ball does the trick as he is hit in front of the middle stump. Mishra has added valuable runs to the total and now he has to walk back 305/8
    88.2 fuller and lower on the off stump line. Coming in just a touch and it hits him in front of middle and off. The final rites for North's innings are being spelt out 317/9
    88.5 good length ball on the leg stump. Joginder plays all over it and is struck on the back leg. The ball then deflects off his leg to the off stump and that's that 317/10
