Sohail Tanvir39616624.2516430001
1.1 to KD Karthik, Kartik's woes continues. Again out cheaply. Full and angling away from Kartik who pushed at with an open face of the bat and edges it to low to second slip. There was not much much foot movement, he just pushed at it. He scored runs in England but they have dried up in India. Gambhir has just hit a big ton in the Ranji Trophy and is breathing down his neck. The pressure will be immense on Kartik when he comes out to bat in the second innings. 2/1
91.1 to W Jaffer, Like yesterday, Tanvir strikes with his first ball. Wasim Jaffer is gone after playing a fabulicious knock. It was slanting away from him and a tad outside off stump too but he stabbed at it. Fatal. He turned back in hope but Akmal was not going to drop this.. 375/4
Mohammad Sami2929903.4112412002
Danish Kaneria50719423.8819427000
40.1 to R Dravid, And he is given out. Dravid can't believe it. He shakes his head as he walks off. It was a flighted delivery, on the off stump and spun away. Dravid tried to drive inside-out, the bat hit the ground and the ball turned past the outside edge. It got struck between Akmal's right arm and the body, Kaneria appealed and Akmal, after making sure he has got the ball, joined in and umpire Doctrove raised his finger. Dravid is not happy. Anyway, Pakistan have managed to break through.. 138/2
75.3 to SR Tendulkar, Kaneria takes out Tendulkar with a googly! Done in by the wrong'un. It was ripped across full and around the off and middle stump line; Tendulkar tried to play it inside-out through covers but this was the other one. It broke back in to clean him up.. 313/3
Yasir Hameed402406.00103000
Salman Butt6.503615.26224100
129.6 to SC Ganguly, Ganguly falls, trying to up the ante. It was floated outside off, Ganguly had gone a touch outside leg stump in his charge and he then came across towards off but lost that fraction of second in the process. And ended up slicing his lofted shot to long-off. But it has been a special knock for him. First ton against Pakistan and that too at his Eden Gardens.. 538/5

Zaheer Khan25.286902.721228005
Munaf Patel2148514.049516010
37.1 to Younis Khan, gone! Patel gets rid of the danger man with an ordinary delivery, short and wide outside the off stump - Khan walks across and has a swish at it, horrible shot to say the least - thick edge and Dhoni makes no mistake.. 134/4
Harbhajan Singh45.5912252.662069201
25.3 to Salman Butt, And he strikes! Salman is gone. Done in by the flight and then by the turn. It was flighted up, above the eye-level and dipped, Salman didn't quite get a full stride out and chose to off drive but got a outside edge and its snapped up by Dravid at slip.. 77/2
27.5 to Mohammad Yousuf, Big wicket. Yousuf is gone now. Big off break. It landed on the rough outside off stump - puff of dust comes up - and Yousuf made the mistake of going for a drive against the turn. He went for an cover drive and the ball spun through the big bat and pad gap to crash into the leg stump. 85/3
102.3 to Kamran Akmal, bowled him! What a ball that is, Harbhajan drifted it across the right-hander from round the wicket, Akmal reached out to drive, the ball pitched, gripped the surface and spun back sharply into the right-hander, it went through the gap between bat and pad and hit off stump. 357/6
149.3 to Shoaib Akhtar, another doosra and he is gone this time. It jumped up off a length, outside off stump and Akthar stabbed a dolly to Dravid. 452/9
151.1 to Danish Kaneria, cleans him up with a big spinning off break. It landed outside off stump and turned in through the big bat and pad gap offered by Kaneria and hit the leg stump. Harbhajan bags a five-for and India lead by 160. 456/10
Anil Kumble471412232.5922113103
7.5 to Yasir Hameed, Kumble strikes in his first over! Top spinner on the middle stump and Yasir is caught dead plumb in front. Again, his left foot was pressed too much across and he couldn't get his bat around in time.. 38/1
40.2 to Faisal Iqbal, Done in by the wrong'un. it landed outside off stump and broke back in to rap him in front of the middle. Faisal was stretching forward but the bat was well outside the line - he didn't pick the googly- and was caught right in front. Pakistan are in a big hole here.. 150/5
146.5 to Sohail Tanvir, googly does the trick. It jumped from outside off stump, Tanvir lunged forward, was beaten by the wrong'un and by the extra bounce and gets an edge. Dravid dived to his left to take the catch and Pakistan have lost their eight wicket. Misbah has now got to go for his big shots.. 449/8
Sachin Tendulkar713204.57274000
Sourav Ganguly41902.25201000
VVS Laxman10212.0040000
145.5 to Mohammad Sami, Laxman strikes and Kumble rushes to hug him! But what an splendid gritty innings from Sami. He couldn't resist the urge to loft Laxman and fell as a result. It was flighted up, full and outside off, Sami tried to heave him over mid-off but ended up slicing it to mid-off. .. 448/7

Shoaib Akhtar12.404623.63575005
38.5 to MS Dhoni, cleans him up with a slower one. It landed outside off stump, full in length and broke back in; Dhoni is beaten by the change of pace, is early into his drive, tries to check it but the ball turns past his bat and strikes the leg stump. 166/3
42.4 to SC Ganguly, Again he backs away, Shoaib fires in a full pitched delivery on the leg stump, Ganguly misses to connect with his heave and the leg stump is pegged back. Kumble has declared.. 184/4
Sohail Tanvir904104.55284001
Mohammad Sami512805.60185000
Danish Kaneria1506124.06496000
18.5 to KD Karthik, Death by aggression. Karthik falls trying to go for a slog sweep. It was flighted on the leg and middle line, Karthik kept his left leg out of the line and tried to swing it over midwicket but ended up top-edging it to Misbah at square leg. 75/1
23.3 to W Jaffer, Kaneria removes Jaffer. It was full and turned from outside leg stump, Jaffer went for a slog sweep - India are going for the runs here - and misses it completely.. 95/2

Zaheer Khan803214.00355003
6.3 to Yasir Hameed, Caught and bowled! Good sharp catch there. It was full in length, on the middle and off stump line and Yasir drove uppishly to the right of Zaheer who stretches out to catch it.. 22/1
Anil Kumble2547322.9211612001
20.2 to Kamran Akmal, Kumble strikes second ball after lunch. It landed outside leg stump and turned in slowly, Akmal tried to swat it away, the bat came in an angle and he missed it completely and the leg stump was pegged back. AKmal had got out like this during the South Africa series. There he had tapped the ball on to the stumps, here he failed to connect. 37/2
34.5 to Salman Butt, traps him in front! Kumble strikes again. It turned in quickly from well outside off stump - Kumble was bowling from round the stumps - and Salman was late on the defensive prod. The ball rushed through to strike the pad in front of middle and that would have hit the leg and middle stump. Kumble has broken through and he is delighted.. 65/3
Munaf Patel1032112.10503000
39.6 to Misbah-ul-Haq, got'im! lovely off-cutter, this one pitched wide outside the off stump and jagged back in at a slow pace, Mishbah was sucked into the drive and the ball went through the gap between bat and pad. Crucial wicket this - India right on top here. 78/4
