1.6 to C Hemanth Kumar, short outside the off stump, this time Hemanth manages to poke at the delivery and it flies with some speed to Rajiv Kumar at point, who had to dive to his left to take the catch and Tigers have drawn the first blood. 12/1
3.4 to G Vignesh, Tigers have the man as Vignesh, subjected to a barrage of short deliveries finally gets a top-edge to pull to midwicket. Gavaskar, running does no mistakes as he cups his hands around the ball. The top-edge was a result of Vignesh moving back. 25/2
Upul Chandana403849.50103230
8.5 to RP Arnold, fuller on the leg stump. Arnold runs out of luck after chancing Marshall's arm more than once. This time around he lofts it to long-on, where Marshall gets his hands under the ball, just in time to send back Arnold. 58/3
18.2 to HK Badani, fuller on the leg stump, Badani comes down the track and slogs it away but does not clear Jhunjhunwala, positioned at deep midwicket. Joy for Chandana then. 154/6
18.3 to SV Saravanan, fuller outside the off stump, Sarvanan is looking to square drive it to deep point but he does not reckon with Jhujhunwala, who dives to his right and pulls off a Jonty and he is in as a substitute. What a catch!. 154/7
18.5 to J Syed Mohammad, late by a ball as Syed comes down the track in an attempt to loft it away but is beaten and Dasgupta, collects and whips the bails off in one motion to send him back. 154/8
Eklak Ahmid3.502135.47123010
17.5 to R Sathish, short outside the off stump, Sathish moves back and is looking to defend it as he gets the ball on the splice of the bat and it bobs up comfortably for McMillan to take the catch. 149/5
19.4 to SG Law, on the middle stump line and short in length, Law is looking to steer it away but gets a bottom edge onto the stumps and has to measure the hard yards back and Eklakh, has some choicest words to say and Law, gets back his own too. 160/9
19.5 to Shabbir Ahmed, short outside the off stump, Shabbir is looking to loft it away and gets an outside edge to point, where Marshall running backwards takes a good catch. 161/10

14.2 to D Dasgupta, finally they have the man or do they as Shabbir pitches it full on the off stump and gets it to cut in slightly and raps the pads inside the line and is plumb but Dasgupta challenges it and wastes his team a referral. 132/1
