Fall of wickets: 1-17 (Sourav Ganguly, 3.2 ov), 2-31 (Dinesh Karthik, 10.2 ov), 3-32 (Rahul Dravid, 11.6 ov), 4-103 (Sachin Tendulkar, 29.3 ov), 5-140 (MS Dhoni, 37.4 ov), 6-147 (Ajit Agarkar, 38.6 ov), 7-178 (Yuvraj Singh, 44.2 ov), 8-179 (Ramesh Powar, 44.4 ov), 9-210 (Zaheer Khan, 49.2 ov), 10-212 (RP Singh, 49.4 ov)
10.2 to KD Karthik, Karthik falls. Short and wide, Karthik goes for a cut shot but only ends up edging it to Prior. Clearly that Chak De movie is doing no good to these guys.. 31/2
38.6 to AB Agarkar, Another one goes down. It landed on a length, just outside off stump and held its line, Agarkar pushes at and ends up nicking it behind.. 147/6
44.2 to Yuvraj Singh, Done in by a yorker. It was speared on the leg stump line, Yuvraj went across and tried to flick it but missed it completely. Huge blow for India.. 178/7
44.4 to RR Powar, Done in by the shorter one. Broad gets his fourth wicket. It was banged in short, on the off stump line, Powar shaped for a pull shot but was beaten for pace and ended up ballooning it to square leg.. 179/8
3.2 to SC Ganguly, Done in by the short ball. Another weak pull shot from Ganguly. It was on the middle stump line and Ganguly pulled it limply to square leg. Unlike some other batsmen, he never plays the pull shot completely, sort of helps it around even as he tries to swivel and this time it looked even more half-hearted attempt than usual.. 17/1
49.2 to Z Khan, Zaheer falls after a breezy innings. It was a slower one, full in length, outside off stump, Zaheer backed to the legside and attempted to heave it over the off side field but just managed to slice it over cover. Collingwood runs back from cover to take it.. 210/9
49.4 to RP Singh, Anderson brings an end to the Indian innings with a slower one. RP Singh is flummoxed and ends up scooping an attempted slog-drive towards square leg. Bopara runs in from deep midwicket, dives full length to take a stunning catch.. 212/10
11.6 to R Dravid, He gets his man this time. It landed outside off stump, kicks up and doesn't come in as much as Dravid expected. As a result Dravid pushed at it, inside the line and the ball took the outside edge en route to Prior. Choke day India?. 32/3
37.4 to MS Dhoni, He nags you with the mundane before surprising you with a work of art. Here is another Monty special. From round the stumps, it drifted in, landed on the middle, Dhoni leans forward, tries to guide it to third man region with an open-face of the bat but the ball evades the bat and crashes into the off stump. Monty is over the moon. He does his unique jig.. 140/5
29.3 to SR Tendulkar, Pietersen takes out Tendulkar with a near long hop! It was short in length, slipping down the leg and middle line, Tendulkar went for a pull shot but ended up top-edging it and Flintoff moved to his left at deep square leg to take a smart catch near the ropes.. 103/4

TOTAL48 Ov (RR: 4.43)213/7
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Alastair Cook, 0.5 ov), 2-14 (Matt Prior, 3.1 ov), 3-35 (Ian Bell, 5.5 ov), 4-81 (Kevin Pietersen, 14.4 ov), 5-95 (Andrew Flintoff, 16.3 ov), 6-110 (Owais Shah, 21.2 ov), 7-114 (Paul Collingwood, 23.5 ov)
0.5 to AN Cook, The middle stump has gone for a walk. It landed on a length, around the off stump before jagging back in. Cook pushed forward to defend but his bat came outside the line as he was beaten by the nip-backer.. 0/1
3.1 to MJ Prior, A fatal upper-cut. It was banged in short, just outside the off stump, Prior shaped to cut it over point but was hurried on by the extra pace and the ball flew to Powar at third man. I thought I heard a sigh of relief. It must have come from Robin Singh, the fielding coach.. 14/2
5.5 to IR Bell, Would you believe it? Bell has shouldered arms and the off stump has been pegged back. It landed on a length, just outside off stump and moved in. Bell, who has been playing shot-a-ball so far, suddenly went strokeless. He shaped to leave it and to his horror, the ball went on to crash into the off stump.. 35/3
14.4 to KP Pietersen, Done in by the short-pitched delivery. Pietersen falls. Agarkar dug it short and outside off, Pietersen tried to pull from there but could only balloon it to square leg. Agarkar gets his third wicket. Indians think that Pietersen is susceptible to the short-pitched one and it has paid off here.. 81/4
16.3 to A Flintoff, Agarkar takes out Flintoff. Big wicket. Full in length, just outside the off stump, Flintoff goes hard at it and ends up scooping it to Yuvraj at point. Agarkar is having quite a evening. This is his fourth wicket.. 95/5
21.2 to OA Shah, Loopy flighted delivery, lands outside off stump, drifts away a touch, sucking Shah into a forward prod. The ball turns in, takes the inside-edge and bobs off the pad to short-leg. Powar has struck with his second delivery and England have lost their sixth wicket.. 110/6
