Nathan Bracken1007817.802811140
45.5 to R Dravid, Another yorker length, on that off stump line, Dravid tries to repeat that chop to third man boundary, the bat comes inside the line and the ball crashes into the off stump. 244/4
Mitchell Johnson805106.37236030
James Hopes904324.77284010
19.6 to SC Ganguly, Hopes gets the breakthrough. Full and outside off, Ganguly kept his front leg outside the leg stump and went for a slash but ended up nicking it to Gilchrist, who is standing up to the stumps.. 91/1
35.6 to Yuvraj Singh, Gone. Yuvraj falls. Short of length delivery, on the off stump, Yuvraj goes for a lofted drive on the up but can only end up ballooning it to extra cover.. 174/2

Zaheer Khan906807.55257220
RP Singh1016626.60255190
5.1 to AC Gilchrist, This time the short one pays off! RP bangs it in and Gilchrist goes for the pull. The ball goes high and far but it's not timed well enough to go all the way. Zaheer Khan is positioned in the deep just for this shot and takes the catch. Big breakthrough for India. 37/1
46.5 to A Symonds, Got him! This is a huge, huge wicket for India at this stage. Symonds, perhaps mindful of the fact that a boundary had not been struck in a while, tries to improvise. Symonds goes to the leg side and shapes to cut. The ball pitches on middle and straightens a touch and once Symonds has missed it only one result is possible. The middle stump is pegged back and India have a big wicket as the pressure mounts in this tight finish. 268/6
Irfan Pathan1004614.60314010
18.2 to RT Ponting, Big blow. Ponting is stumped. Full in length, slanting away from Ponting who leans forward to drive. The bat comes outside the line and the ball threads the bat and pad gap. Dhoni gathers and whips the bails off in flash. He appeals for a stumping chance and it is referred upstairs. Ponting had lunged forward while trying to drive and his back foot was on the crease. The line belongs to the umpire and he is out. Ponting stands there for a long time, unhappy at the verdict. I can't understand why he stood so long there. He was seen muttering and gesticulating even as he walked up the stairs to reach the dressing room. It was a decision made by the third umpire. Anyway ... that's that.. 122/2
Sourav Ganguly10707.0021000
Harbhajan Singh1004324.30344010
21.4 to MJ Clarke, Down the pitch comes Clarke again, charges even, Harbhajan holds the ball back a touch tossing it up and Clarke only prods back to the bowler. It's uppish and Harbhajan snaps. That's a big wicket for India and a clever bit of bowling from Harbhajan Singh. 132/3
43.2 to BJ Hodge, down the leg side, first the wide ball comes, Hodge tries to flick this off his pads but seems to overbalance. Dhoni collects cleanly and whips the bails off in a flash. The decision is referred to the third umpire. The replay shows quite clearly that Hodge has dragged his foot out of the crease and he has to go as the third umpire gives the decision in India's favour. 246/5
Murali Kartik1004814.80272100
33.5 to ML Hayden, Got him! Again Hayden comes down the pitch, once more Kartik adjusts his flight and length and Hayden is beaten a touch. He goes through with the shot anyway. This time one hand comes off the bat and the ball does not have enough on it. It sails towards the midwicket fence but Zaheer Khan settles under the catch. Big breakthrough for India. 190/4
