0.1

Anderson to Gambhir, 1 wide, avast, tis down the leg-side

0.1

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, that's more like it. Outside off and swinging away

0.2

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, ahoy, that's the length. Leaping off the deck like a galleon on the high seas

0.3

Anderson to Gambhir, 1 run, pushed back onto the stumps, and tucked to square leg for the first runs off the bat

India 2/0   G Gambhir 1* (3b)
1.4

Broad to Gambhir, no run, avast! That leapt past the left-hander's outside edge. Spirited stuff from the young pup

1.5

Broad to Gambhir, 1 run, wafted down to third man

India 11/0   G Gambhir 2* (5b)
2.5

Flintoff to Gambhir, no run, full-hearted effort, but Flintoff grimaces in his followthrough once more

2.6

Flintoff to Gambhir, 1 run, short of a length but tight to off stump. Gambhir cuts but is cramped for room, a single nonetheless

India 17/0   G Gambhir 3* (7b)
3.1

Anderson to Gambhir, 1 run, Gambhir nurdles down to fine leg. Sehwag has free rein for five balls

3.3

Anderson to Gambhir, 2 runs, climbs into that one, outside off and on a good length. Not timed but effective enough

3.4

Anderson to Gambhir, 2 runs, short and smeared with intent - hits high on the bat though and Gambhir is lucky to clear the man at wide mid-on

3.5

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, shorter and flailed into the off side again, like a grog-addled mutineer

3.6

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, short again, and misses out again. This time the pull shot is timed better, but straight to midwicket

India 23/0   G Gambhir 8* (12b)
4.2

Broad to Gambhir, SIX, avast, the first six of the innings. Short and clobbered over midwicket

4.3

Broad to Gambhir, 1 run, tucked away to rotate the strike

India 31/0   G Gambhir 15* (14b 1x6)
6.3

Mascarenhas to Gambhir, 1 run, x marks the spot for Dimitri. Gambhir can only nudge that away for another single

India 47/0   G Gambhir 16* (15b 1x6)
7.3

Tremlett to Gambhir, FOUR, too wide and Gambhir slashes that with immense power past Collingwood at backward point

7.4

Tremlett to Gambhir, (no ball) 1 run, oh dear, we've got a free hit coming up ... not clever with Sehwag back on strike

7.6

Tremlett to Gambhir, no run, outside off stump and swinging away to the keeper. A good recovery from Tremlett. It would have been out with the cat o' nine tails if he'd overstepped again

India 70/0   G Gambhir 21* (18b 1x4 1x6)
8.3

Anderson to Gambhir, 1 run, full, on leg stump. Gambhir needed to play that finer to beat the field, but it's a good diving stop nonetheless at short backward square

8.6

Anderson to Gambhir, FOUR, lovely shot, outside off, full length, angled through the cordon and away to the third man boundary. Great skill and improvisation

India 77/0   G Gambhir 26* (20b 2x4 1x6)
9.2

Collingwood to Gambhir, no run, outside off and well taken by Solanki

9.3

Collingwood to Gambhir, 1 run, a big wind-up and bludgeoned through midwicket

India 79/0   G Gambhir 27* (22b 2x4 1x6)
10.3

Broad to Gambhir, no run, cuttable length, and that's what Gambhir tries to do, but he misses ... slightly slower delivery and that did for him

10.4

Broad to Gambhir, 1 run, fuller, again Gambhir steps back and cuts into the ground, the ball scoots into the covers and they have to be happy with a strolled single

India 94/0   G Gambhir 28* (24b 2x4 1x6)
11.1

Tremlett to Gambhir, FOUR, a slog, no other word, but highly effective, he steps back and absolutely leathers that past Tremlett who would have been wise to have ducked had it been a foot lower

11.2

Tremlett to Gambhir, 2 wides, cuts but the ball is way too wide, a fumble allows the batsmen to scurry a single

11.4

Tremlett to Gambhir, 1 leg bye, another ugly heave from Gambhir, he misses but the ball hits him high on the leg and into the off side, Anderson fields

India 110/0   G Gambhir 32* (26b 3x4 1x6)
12.1

Anderson to Gambhir, 1 run, banged in, hooked but not middled, the ball dribbles to Flintoff behind square on the leg side

12.3

Anderson to Gambhir, 1 run, firm drive to Mascarenhas at long-on

12.5

Anderson to Gambhir, 1 wide, much too short, way over Gambhir's head

12.5

Anderson to Gambhir, 2 runs, full toss, launched towards deep midwicket, it lands two yards inside the boundary and plugs

12.6

Anderson to Gambhir, 1 run, cut to third man

India 118/0   G Gambhir 37* (30b 3x4 1x6)
13.1

Maddy to Gambhir, no run, straight, patted back to Maddy

13.2

Maddy to Gambhir, FOUR, a swing, a thick inside edge beats short fine leg. "Son of a Biscuit Eater," yells Maddy. Well, almost ...

13.3

Maddy to Gambhir, FOUR, much better, much crisper, two steps and hammered over extra cover

13.4

Maddy to Gambhir, 1 run, one step this time and flicked to deep midwicket

13.6

Maddy to Gambhir, 1 leg bye, squeezed off his toes to short fine leg

India 129/0   G Gambhir 46* (35b 5x4 1x6)
14.1

Tremlett to Gambhir, FOUR, full toss that got exactly what is deserved, four runs smashed through midwicket

14.2

Tremlett to Gambhir, 1 run, Gambhir back and content to pat the ball to point and stroll the single. Tremlett looks rather unhappy with life

14.6

Tremlett to Gambhir, 1 run, slashed in the air to third man, the ball falls five or so yards short of Shah

India 138/1   G Gambhir 52* (38b 6x4 1x6)
15.1

Maddy to Gambhir, FOUR, deftness in a sea of hoicks ... run off the face of the bat ever so fine on the leg side, using the pace of the ball to do all the work

15.2

Maddy to Gambhir, 2 runs, driven high and straight, Shah round from long-off and he makes a neat sliding stop

15.3

Maddy to Gambhir, OUT, Gambhir tries to flick to leg but only succeeds in paddling to short fine leg and the ball loops invitingly to Flintoff

G Gambhir c Broad b Maddy 58 (62m 41b 7x4 1x6) SR: 141.46

India 144/2   G Gambhir 58 (41b 7x4 1x6)
