Umar Gul402345.75141120
3.1 to JR Hopes, leg before! Gul pitches it on middle and off on a good length and the ball comes in with the angle, Hopes plays across the line but the ball skids through and hits him in line with middle and leg, umpire Shivram is convinced. 24/1
14.6 to KC Sangakkara, leg before! Pitches in line of offstump, the ball carries on with the angle, Sanga tries to work it across the line but he misses, the ball hits him on the pads and Steve Davis is convinced, replays suggested the ball may have missed the offstump. 133/3
19.4 to IK Pathan, Pathan makes room and slog it over the on side, Gul fires in a yorker at the base of the stumps and flattens the off and middle stumps as Pathan heaves and misses. 173/5
19.5 to PP Chawla, Gul's hit the furniture again! Chawla makes room to steer it wide of the keeper and down to third man, the ball removes the offstump and pegs the middle stump back. 173/6
Ishant Sharma4049012.2587030
Ajantha Mendis402416.0093000
12.4 to SE Marsh, the bowling change down the trick! Mendis delivers it from a few inches behind the popping crease and holds the length back, Marsh gives him the charge, lofts over the infield but ends up sending it down Chopra's throat at long-on. 107/2

Irfan Pathan3.403609.81104210
Sreesanth403328.25115100
5.2 to Salman Butt, Sreesanth bowls another slower ball, the legcutter, Butt gets on his knee to slog the full length ball over the on side, he fails to get the elevation and places it straight to Srivastava at short midwicket. 45/1
5.3 to DB Das, on a hat-trick! Sreesanth pitches it on a good length on off and middle, the ball comes in slightly with the angle and catches Das on the forward prod, Steve Davis reckons that would have hit the legstump. 45/2
Ramesh Powar201407.0071110
Vikram Singh402827.00114020
9.5 to LR Shukla, cartwheel! Shulka makes just a bit of room outside his legstump to improvise, VRV bangs it on a good length in line of legstump and the ball holds its line, Shukla tries to work it to the on side but leaves a big gap between bat and pad, the legstump goes back nearly halfway through to the keeper, that's a magnificent sight for any fast bowler or for that matter any of us. 70/4
18.3 to Umar Gul, Punjab claw back! He bowls it on a good length with good pace, Gul stays at the crease for the loft, he scoops it high in the air but doesn't get the desired elevation, Powar takes it easily at long-off. 155/7
Piyush Chawla403629.0093200
8.4 to DJ Hussey, excellent stuff from Chawla! Hussey gives him the charge again, he cleverly holds the length back and bowls the googly, Hussey swings and misses and the ball flattens the middle stump. 62/3
14.4 to WP Saha, Saha gives him the charge again to launch him downtown, Chawla gives it extra flight and holds the length back a little shorter, Saha fails to go through with the loft, Pathan runs forward from long-on to take the skier. 102/5
James Hopes2023111.5040300
15.3 to A Chopra, Hopes thuds it in short and gets it to angle in towards the right hander, Chopra goes for the pull too early and he gets a thin edge off the back of the bat, Sangakkara dives forward and gloves it easily. 106/6
