5.4 thick edge! Short and slightly wide outside off, not exactly a wicket-taking delivery but Gambhir flashes away from the body and edges it to Boucher 48/1
    9.2 flighted on the off stump, Sehwag stays at the crease and tries to slam it over long-off but he checks his shot slightly,. doesn't get the required elevation, easy take for Pandey 77/2
    12.6 the frustration gets to Dilshan! After a frustrating five balls he tries his signature scoop over the keeper but gets a top edge, Kumble runs forward and completes the catch, top over 91/4
    10.3 trapped! Kumble floats it on middle and Karthik comes forward and tries to push it through the off side on the walk, he was well forward at the point of contact which was on the base of the pads and in front of middle, umpire Jerling is convinced 81/3
    16.2 drops it short, Shah swivels and clubs it firmly over square leg, he doesn't get the required elevation to clear B Kumar, for the first time in days Kumble looks relieved 114/5
    19.6 low full toss on the leg stump and he comes down the track and mis-hits the loft, the ball swirls towards mid-off and Pandey takes it easily, Kumble pats him for his efforts, Pandey will value that after letting his captain down in the field earlier 138/6
