18,19,20,21,22 July 2010 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Muralitharan to Mithun, no run, big offspinner, starts from outside off and turns across Mithun who has surely never seen more revolutions on an offbreak before


Muralitharan to Mithun, FOUR, shot! Mithun opens his Test runs account with a brave cut against the spin from just outside off, but he controls it well and sends it scurrying behind square


Muralitharan to Mithun, no run, similar line but totally different ball! Mithun shapes for another cut and is then made to look a little clumsy since it is a doosra that turns away from him

India 270/9   A Mithun 4* (3b 1x4)

Herath to Mithun, no run, armer on off stump, Mithun does not spot it but manages to keep it out to the off side


Herath to Mithun, no run, tossed up on middle and off, turning away and gets Mithun's leading edge but it goes safely between the fielders in the off side


Herath to Mithun, FOUR, short and asking to be hit, and in a short time Mithun has already made a case for promotion to number 9. This was whacked through midwicket

India 275/9   A Mithun 8* (6b 2x4)

Muralitharan to Mithun, no run, over the sticks to Mithun and he picks the offspinner and defends it nicely


Muralitharan to Mithun, no run, he does anything but pick the doosra and plays a mile inside the line as it harmlessly fizzes past his outside edge


Muralitharan to Mithun, no run, faster offspinner on off and middle, Mithun somehow manages to get bat on it, or does he? Huge appeal turned down.


Muralitharan to Mithun, OUT, no need to appeal this time! Murali raises his arms in joy he has yet another five-wicket haul, his 67th! It was another fastish offspinner that curved in and then took off from outside off, Mithun was late on the cut and no shame in that, this ball has bamboozled far better batsmen. Leg stump is breached, leg bail is down, India are all out. Murali has 797 Test wickets. What a champ!

A Mithun b Muralitharan 8 (7m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

India 276/10   A Mithun 8 (10b 2x4)
