Irfan Pathan2897122.5314111012
10.5 to AJ Strauss, got'm! short of a good length delivery, width offered and Strauss goes after it, ball clips the bottom edge and goes behind, Dhoni dives across full-length to his left and gloves it inches away from the ground, fantastic take!. 35/1
12.5 to AN Cook, beauty! Pathan gets one to come back into the left-hander, Cook plays across the line and is trapped plumb in front of the stumps, excellent bowling this from the left-hander. England two down. 36/2
Munaf Patel2567232.8812011003
48.1 to KP Pietersen, got'm! well disguised slower delivery, Pietersen drives on the up and the ball goes straight back to the bowler, Patel holds on well to a fairly easy chance and that's his first Test wicket, well bowled - England four down.. 157/4
91.4 to A Flintoff, good length delivery, probably the slower one, Flintoff ends up driving it straight back down the track, head high catch, Patel fumbles on the first attempt but keeps his cool and takes it on the second attempt, crucial breakthrough this for India.. 283/6
97.1 to LE Plunkett, Patel strikes again! short and drifting down the leg side, Plunkett has a loose dab at it, looking to turn it away fine, ball goes through to the keeper and the appeal is upheld, not sure if he got a touch on it but the umpire was convinced, probably bit of glove involved. 290/7

Anil Kumble29.487652.5614011001
33.6 to IR Bell, gone!! Kumble foxes Bell with a perfect googly! this one was tossed up, pitches outside off and turns into Bell, Bell doesnt pick the googly, shoulders arms and the ball just about dislodges the bail on top of the off stump. 117/3
59.2 to PD Collingwood, wow! flighted delivery, pitched on middle and leg and turning right across, Collingwood gets forward and presents a straight bat and thought he had it covered but the ball turns away just enough to beat the outside edge and the off stump is pegged back! that's a beauty!. 180/5
103.1 to GO Jones, well bowled leg-break, Jones pushes forward to defend, ball clips the inside edge, hits the pad and rolls into the stumps, wicket number 499! sad end to a fine innings!. 300/8
103.2 to SJ Harmison, there it is! 500th Test wicket and it's a flipper that does the trick, too good a delivery for Harmison and he is trapped plumb in front of the stumps, loud appeal and up goes the finger - England nine down. 300/9
103.4 to MS Panesar, all over! tossed up and turning in, Panesar pushes forward to defend and the ball goes off the outside edge, clips the keeper's pad on the way but Dravid at first slip holds on well, this is Kumble at his best!. 300/10

Matthew Hoggard1865523.05858110
48.2 to Yuvraj Singh, Hoggard strikes! short and wide outside the off stump, angling away from the left-hander, Yuvraj drives away from his body and the ball goes in the air towards cover, Bell there dives across full length to his left and takes a one-handed blinder, amazing catch and the in-form Yuvraj is back in the hut!. 134/4
92.5 to PP Chawla, too full and wide outside the off stump, was the slower one and Chawla is foxed into driving it straight to Collingwood at point, India nine down. 321/9
Steve Harmison2896022.141345000
3.5 to V Sehwag, gone!!! Sehwag goes for a low score yet agiain, a short one nails him this time, Harmison follows his bouncer with yet another short delivery, rising just about Sehwag's shoulder height, Sehwag goes back to defend but plays the wrong line, the ball kisses the glove on the way through to Geriant Jones, its first blow by England!. 18/1
55.4 to MS Dhoni, and Harmison gets his revenge in typical fashion! short rising delivery on the middle and off stump line, too good a delivery for Dhoni who fends at it standing tall on the back-foot, ball clips the glove and goes straight to Jones behind the stumps, that's a big wicket, India five down.. 153/5
Andrew Flintoff2239644.368810008
38.3 to SR Tendulkar, got'm! short rising delivery, Tendulkar is comprehensively beaten by the extra bounce and the edge goes straight to Strauss at second slip, that's a crucial breakthrough, India three down and in a spot of bother there.. 103/3
72.1 to R Dravid, bowled'm! good length delivery, cutting in from outside the off stump, kept a bit low, Dravid defends on the back-foot, ball clips the inside edge and crashes into the furniture, sad end to a fine innings, Flintoff does it again!. 229/6
76.5 to IK Pathan, it's that man Flintoff again! good length delivery, bowled from over the stumps, pitched close to the off stump line and angling across the left-hander, Pathan drives on the up and the ball goes straight to Collingwood at backward point, India seven down. 260/7
88.6 to Harbhajan Singh, gone! good length delivery outside the off stump, bowled from over the stumps, was there to bit and Harbhajan flashes hard at it but the shot is not timed well enough, ball clips the edge and goes straight keeper and that's Flintoff's fourth wicket, end of an entertaining knock. 313/8
Liam Plunkett9.213713.96394000
96.2 to A Kumble, excellent yorker, Kumble is bit late and the off stump is pegged back, India end up with a lead of 38 runs. 338/10
Monty Panesar1936513.42796100
33.6 to W Jaffer, gone!! Panesar strikes. That was good spin bowling from the left armer, threw it up in the air just a bit, held it back too, and bowled fuller, Jaffer is beaten in the air and goes through with his cover drive, plays a little early, can't keep the ball down and ends up presenting a simple catch to Andrew Flintoff at short cover.. 96/2
