TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 5.30, 234 Mins)265/9
Fall of wickets: 1-66 (Sachin Tendulkar, 11.4 ov), 2-76 (Sourav Ganguly, 14.1 ov), 3-90 (Rahul Dravid, 18.4 ov), 4-130 (Vinod Kambli, 24.5 ov), 5-194 (Robin Singh, 36.1 ov), 6-215 (Vijay Dahiya, 39.5 ov), 7-222 (Ajit Agarkar, 42.1 ov), 8-239 (Yuvraj Singh, 46.4 ov), 9-258 (Anil Kumble, 49.3 ov)
11.4 to SR Tendulkar, and there's the wicket. It has been a strange innings. Tendulkar played a few strokes that we are not used to seeing him play. Last ball, he looked to cut and this delivery too, he does the same. This time, though, he gets an outside edge to first slip. Martyn pouches it. 66/1
39.5 to V Dahiya, fuller ball outside the off stump. Dahiya looks to slice it and gets an outside edge that flies to the slip fielder, Mark Waugh. He has already dropped Yuvraj once. This time, he holds on. 215/6
14.1 to SC Ganguly, there's an appeal and Ganguly has to walk! Short ball on the ribs and Ganguly is cramped up. He looks to glance and just manages to guide it into the gloves of Gilchrist. 76/2
18.4 to R Dravid, fuller ball on the middle stump. On the pads. He flicked a similar delivery behind square for a boundary early on. Wanted to do the same here. Early into the stroke. So, he ends up lofting it into the hands of the midwicket fielder, Shane Lee. 90/3
36.1 to RR Singh, good length ball outside the off stump. He looks to drive and gets an inside edge back onto the stumps. Robin Singh is harsh on himself as he has to walk back. 194/5
42.1 to AB Agarkar, flat-batted straight to long-off. Don't know why Agarkar would try and take matters in his hands when Yuvraj is so well set at the other end. Total lack of match awareness.. 222/7
46.4 to Yuvraj Singh, chance, Lee calls, Lee catches. Yuvraj won't get the hundred but he's still made a significant contribution. Possible he lost a bit of concentration because he'd been denied the strike for long, with Kumble struggling to turn it over. Looks to back away and heave across the line, the top-edge goes high, miles in the air, and Shane calls for it and takes it very nicely. End of a superb knock. But only time will tell if it will be match-winning. 239/8
24.5 to VG Kambli, edged and gone! Soft dismissal after doing all the hard work. Looking to go inside-out this time, gets a thick edge and Gilchrist does the rest. India in a hint of trouble now. 130/4

TOTAL46.4 Ov (RR: 5.25, 219 Mins)245
Fall of wickets: 1-43 (Mark Waugh, 7.1 ov), 2-51 (Adam Gilchrist, 8.5 ov), 3-86 (Ian Harvey, 15.6 ov), 4-159 (Ricky Ponting, 28.5 ov), 5-163 (Michael Bevan, 31.2 ov), 6-169 (Damien Martyn, 33.6 ov), 7-189 (Shane Lee, 36.5 ov), 8-224 (Steve Waugh, 42.1 ov), 9-226 (Brett Lee, 43.3 ov), 10-245 (Jason Gillespie, 46.4 ov)
8.5 to AC Gilchrist, short ball on the off stump. Zaheer kept persisting with the short ball even though he was being taken for runs. This time he gets the line right. Gilchrist looks to pull and gets a top edge to mid-on. Ganguly runs in and takes the catch. Superb bowling by Zaheer Khan. 51/2
42.1 to SR Waugh, he's castled Steve Waugh! Steve Waugh was making room in anticipation of a yorker, of which he bowled a couple in the previous game v Kenya, and gets foxed by a length ball. He is beaten and the stumps are disturbed. What a match for India! They have unearthed a superb batsman and a wily bowler. 224/8
7.1 to ME Waugh, width outside the off stump. Doesn't bounce. Mark Waugh reaches out for it and cuts it straight to third-man. Kumble takes the catch. 43/1
43.3 to B Lee, short ball on the middle stump. Lee looks to pull and doesn't connect it well. It lobs up to midwicket region. Ganguly makes ground, dives forward and pulls off the catch. He is ecstatic. 226/9
15.6 to IJ Harvey, what a grab from Yuvraj! Harvey looking to drive, hit it int he air and the 18-year old flung himself to his left to take a stunning catch at cover. As soon as he took it, just flexed his knee, probably because he may have stretched it a tad much but is that a big wicket or what!. 86/3
46.4 to JN Gillespie, fuller ball outside the off stump. He looks to slice it and cuts it to point where Robin Singh takes the catch. India win by 20 runs. 245/10
28.5 to RT Ponting, short ball outside the off stump. Ponting pulls. It went at a screaming pace to Robin Singh. He dives to his left and pulls off a brilliant catch. 159/4
33.6 to DR Martyn, bowled him! And it's the off cutter that has done the trick. Martyn deceived by the length, plays outside the line as well. The ball nips back in a long way to sneak through the huge gap between bat and pad to crash into the stumps.. 169/6
