Fall of wickets: 1-26 (Sourav Ganguly, 6.1 ov), 2-52 (Gautam Gambhir, 12.4 ov), 3-53 (Rahul Dravid, 13.3 ov), 4-59 (Sachin Tendulkar, 15.4 ov), 5-106 (Robin Uthappa, 24.3 ov), 6-119 (Yuvraj Singh, 30.2 ov), 7-147 (Ramesh Powar, 37.2 ov), 8-148 (Piyush Chawla, 38.4 ov), 9-160 (Zaheer Khan, 41.6 ov), 10-187 (MS Dhoni, 47.3 ov)
6.1 to SC Ganguly, His luck runs out finally. Full in length, slanting away from him and he had a lame poke at it with an open-face of the bat and it went low to the second slip.. 26/1
12.4 to G Gambhir, oh superb catch from Wright! Gambhir swivels uneasily, latching onto a short of a length delivery just outside off stump, the ball comes off the bottom of the bat and flies low and fast to Wright at square leg, who times his dive forward brilliantly and plucks it inches off the ground!. 52/2
13.3 to R Dravid, and it works! That ball was quick, pitching back of a length outside off stump and jagging in, Dravid hops up and tries to drop the bat out of harms way but theres a noise as ball passes him, it deviates sharply and Prior collects moving to his left, they all go up in appeal and Aleem Dar nods his head and raises the finger! Dravid isnt happy at all, the ball bounced well and he seems to say the bat flicked his pad.... 53/3
15.4 to SR Tendulkar, gone, but how! Flintoff pitches full again, outside off stump, Tendulkar drives loosely, bat misses ball completely, instead the bat clips the pad as he goes through with the shot, they appeal for the catch from Prior and Aleem Dar pulls off a shocking dismissal! Wow, there was no bat on ball whatsoever and Tendulkar is livid. Another bad dismissal in this long summer of competitive cricket.. 59/4
47.3 to MS Dhoni, good catch in the deep! Dhoni slogs a fullish delivery and mistimes it over the covers and mid-off, the ball's up in the air for some time and Anderson, moving to his left and running around from long-off, watches the ball brilliantly and times his dive to perfection, cupping his hands and holding on to end India's innings at 187. 187/10
24.3 to RV Uthappa, And Uthappa combusts. Full and outside off, it was a slower one, Uthappa loses patience and slashes it uppishly straight to mid-off. It was in the slot allright but instead of driving it through extra cover, he tried to clear mid-off and paid the penalty. The bat-face shut a touch and he didn't get his placement or timing right.. 106/5
30.2 to Yuvraj Singh, That's a big wicket. Huge blow to India. Yuvraj Singh is gone. It lands on a length, around the off and middle line and angles away, Yuvraj steers it straight to Collingwood who had placed himself at third slip position.. 119/6
38.4 to PP Chawla, smart stumping! Similar delivery, pushed across Chawla, who drives lustily and misses, dragging the back foot forward and Prior, after collecting nicely, whips off the bails just before Chawla could drag the foot back in, neatly done to get rid of India's eighth batsman. 148/8
41.6 to Z Khan, bowled 'em! Monty tosses it up on middle and off, Zaheer goes for a regulation tail-end swipe across the line, misses, and loses his stumps for Monty to break into celebration! India are nine down.... 160/9

1.2 to LJ Wright, RP gets his man this time. A sharp bouncer, angling away from Wright, who tries to fetch it from there - a weak pull shot- and it just lobs up for RP to come under it. He was on his way back to the pavilion as soon as he hit it: he knew he'd gone. 10/1
1.4 to MJ Prior, Another one goes down. India are running hot here. In the zone outside the off stump, from a length and Prior seems to be in trance and just pokes at it. Fatal edge. He slams his bat into his pads as he walks off, furious with himself. He's really marching back to the pavilion now.. 11/2
