Mohammad Asif1025715.70368100
44.4 to R Dravid, bowled'm! full and angling in, Dravid drives away from his body, probably looking to go over the in-field on the off side, ball clips the inside edge and crashes into the stumps, Asif strikes - Dravid departs just eight runs short of a hundred. 228/2
45.5 to MS Dhoni, Rana strikes! another well disguised slower delivery, pitched on middle and off and cutting in, Dhoni is early into the shot and the ball goes past the bat, clips the pad and crashes into the stumps, big wicket!. 234/3
47.2 to Yuvraj Singh, Rana strikes back for Pakistan and once again it's the slower delivery that gets him a wicket! Yuvraj was looking to slog it over the square leg fence but on this occasion gets the height but not the distance, Asif moves in from the deeps and nicely settles under it. 255/4

Irfan Pathan1003533.50383000
4.5 to Imran Farhat, Pathan strikes! fuller length delivery, pitched on middle and leg and swinging in, not sure if it did enough, Farhat is beaten for pace and the ball hits the pad right in front of the stumps, loud appeal and up goes the finger - Pakistan one down. 22/1
6.1 to Shahid Afridi, bowled'm! good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, shaping back in, Afridi drives away from his body and that leaves a big gap between bat and pad through which comes the sound of timber breaking! excellent line and length and the ball swung in just enough to beat the inside edge. 23/2
41.2 to Naved-ul-Hasan, good length delivery, slanting across from middle and leg, Rana gets behind the line and lofts it down to long-on, Rao in the deep judges it to perfection and takes a fantastic catch inches away from the ropes, stayed side-on and that allowed him to keep his balance - much needed wicket for India, Pakistan eight down. 198/8
45.2 to Iftikhar Anjum, all over! good length delivery, well bowled off-cutter, Iftikhar Anjum plays all over it and the ball crashes into the stumps.. 218/10
Ajit Agarkar813013.75311120
11.3 to Younis Khan, good length delivery, pitched wide outside the off stump and shaping away from the right-hander, a relatively innocuous delivery, Khan goes fishing outside the off stump and catches an edge, Dhoni dives across to his right and takes a good catch - Pakistan three down and in trouble here!. 45/3
Harbhajan Singh1005715.70242110
34.5 to Kamran Akmal, good length delivery, was the straighter one, Akmal playing for the turn and looking to work it away on the leg side, closes the face of the bat bit too early and the ball lobs up off the top-edge, Dravid moves in from short cover and takes a simple catch, Pakistan six down!. 147/6
Ramesh Powar1006136.10224040
25.1 to Shoaib Malik, amazing catch! regulation off-spinner and Malik sweeps it away in the air to the square leg region, Yuvraj there dives across full length to his right and a takes a blinder - Pakistan four down. 91/4
27.4 to Mohammad Yousuf, Powar strikes again! excellent line and length delivery, Yousuf gets forward and clips it away in the air towards short midwicket, Raina there times his jump to perfection and takes a good over-head catch, Yousuf's bad run continues - Pakistan five down and looking straight down the barrel here. 108/5
35.2 to Abdul Razzaq, and the slump continues! fuller length delivery outside the off stump and Razzaq lofts it straight to Kaif placed all the way down at long-on, wicket number three for Powar!. 148/7
