0.3 knocked him over! Kumble takes out Gilchrist! Kumble maintains that excellent line, keeps it slow through the air, Gilchrist dances out and tries to club the ball over the leg side but misses the wrong un and the ball shatters into the stumps, good delivery, poor execution 0/1
    not out
    3.3 gone! Suman perishes to a straight ball on the pads, takes a step down and looks to flick that over midwicket but the late movement undoes him, the leading edge going high to the off side where three men converge but its Pandey from point who runs back and takes it 18/2
    8.5 what a way to get out! Kumble slides another wrong 'un down leg stump, its short and sits up to be pulled but Symonds cannot connect at all, the ball hits him under the arm, drops onto his thighs and then lands on leg stump to dislodge the bails 58/3
    16.2 and Kumble strikes again on return thanks to an excellent catch from Pandey! He floats it up, gets some turn, Rohit makes room and dances out looking to go over extra cover for six but doesn't connect, the ball is up in the air for ages and Pandey covers a lot of ground on the run from long-off and dives forward to pluck a great catch with two hands 110/4
    16.6 four for Kumble! Venugopal Rao chucks it away with a loose inside-out shot, charges out but cannot get enough elevation and the ball goes straight to the man back on the extra cover boundary 115/5
    19.1 and he's struck first ball with an attempted on the stumps, Bilakhia gets across to swing it over midwicket but misses and the low full toss hits him in front of leg stump 134/6
    not out

    RE van der Merwe402807.0082100
    3.3 dragged on! Kallis gets into position early and spots the short ball but only manages to reach out and under edge the ball onto off stump, massive wicket that 20/1
    6.1 and he's got his man first ball! This one pitches back of a length and turns ever so slightly away from Pandey, who waits on the back foot and cuts but only manages the thinnest of edges into Gilchrist's gloves 36/2
    8.3 wild slog and he's stumped by a week! Ojha persists with the fuller length, slows it up a touch, it dips and breaks away sharply from Roelof as he skips out and swings, Gilchrist just has to collect and break the stumps 57/3
    11.4 bowled em! Dravid gets too far across his stumps and cannot pull off the paddle shot with a man down at deep fine leg and his leg stump is knocked over 79/4
    14.2 gone this time and thats a crucial time to get rid of Taylor! Symonds dropped it back in length and Taylor's eye lits lit up, but he miscues the pull shot straight to the man out at deep square leg, who doesn't make a mistake 99/5
    14.3 hello hello hello, whats this? Excellent work from Gilchrist, collecting the ball that slides down Kohli's pads, he's over the line and doesn't get back in time so thats stumped and the stadium erupts as the sign flashes OUT on the big screen, chalk that down to excellent work behind the stumps from Gilchrist 99/6
    15.5 gone, is that the game? Boucher goes back and limply cuts a short and wide ball right to Gibbs at point, right into his lap and Harmeet has taken another wicket 107/7
    not out
    16.4 they're collapsing! Ojha gently lobs it up on the stumps, Praveen swings across the line and the leading edge is taken easily by RP Singh running in from gully 110/8
    18.6 brilliant catch, and I mean brilliant, and whats more the batsmen have crossed! Vinay gets right across his stumps and paddles the ball, makes good contact but Harmeet Singh runs in from fine leg and holds a stunner inches off the ground, catches win matches, put them down at your peril is the old saying and this young man has held his nerves excellently to hold on 129/9
    not out
