74.2OUTOjha to Prior, out Bowled!! Ojha gets a well deserved five wicket haul. It was nicely flighted on middle, Prior tries to make room to loft it over cover but misses and the ball turns to hit the off stump. That's his 4th fiv-fer in Tests. Prior b Ojha 48(100) [4s-7]191/10
73.5OUTZaheer to Broad, out Lbw!! Zaheer finally gets some respite. It was nipping in sharply from outside off, Broad was inside the crease as it struck him on the front pad. There was big movement and it looked very close. It struck him in front of leg and Aleem Dar took his time to raise his finger. Broad lbw b Zaheer 25(23) [4s-2 6s-1]
73.1FOURZaheer to Broad, leg byes, FOUR, Zaheer strays onto leg now and it grazes Broad's pads to race through fine leg for a boundary183/8
70.3FOURAshwin to Prior, FOUR, flat and on the off, Prior sweeps well again and Zaheer makes a mess of it at fine leg. Very poor effort and ends up conceding a boundary177/8
69SIXAshwin to Broad, SIX, the carrom ball from Ashwin but Broad picks it early, gets down on one knee and smacks it over the long on boundary. He is not in a mood to just hang about166/8
68.1FOURAshwin to Broad, FOUR, very full outside off and Broad is trying to get on top early, he leans forward and slaps it hard through extra cover156/8

154.3OUTZaheer to Bresnan, out Caught by (sub)Rahane!! That's the end of Bresnan and England. 76 runs lead is all they managed. Good catch by Rahane who was on the field for Gambhir for the last two days. Bresnan drove it in the air, couldn't keep it down, finds the fielder who dived to his left to take a good one. Bresnan c (sub)Rahane b Zaheer 20(48) [4s-1]406/10
153.5OUTAshwin to Swann, out Bowled!! Swann b Ashwin 17(31) [4s-2 6s-1]406/9
153.2FOURAshwin to Swann, FOUR, the reverse sweep again. The lead is growing. In the channel outside off, Swann reverse paddles it to third man for four. Can't do much about those406/8
150.3FOURZaheer to Swann, FOUR, a low full toss down the leg side, Swann flicks it to deep backward square leg, these are useful runs for England399/8
149.4SIXOjha to Swann, SIX, you'll see that with Swann. Off the mark with a 6! Sees the flight and plays a slog sweep, clears deep square leg easily394/8
148.1FOURUmesh Yadav to Bresnan, byes, FOUR, wayward delivery from Umesh and Dhoni is very angry. Down the leg side, doesn't cary to Dhoni and goes way to his left as well, he dives but doesn't stop it. He then shouts at the bowler, you don't see that too often!388/8

13.1FOURSwann to Pujara, FOUR, just a flick! Goes deep in the crease and whips it with the turn, the timing is superb and it goes to the fence71/1
10.2FOURSamit Patel to Virat Kohli, FOUR, this man is class as well. A perfect cover drive. Good stride, leans into the shot and place it wide of extra cover, off the mark in style65/1
10FOURSwann to Pujara, FOUR, Sehwag's dismissal makes no difference to Pujara. Sees the short ball and pulls it away through deep mid wicket for a boundary61/1
9.5OUTSwann to Sehwag, out Caught by Pietersen!! Sehwag tries to finish it soon and perishes. Comes down the track and lofts, gets more height than distance on it, KP was a few yards inside near long on and had to run back, he judges it well and also makes sure he doesn't fall over the ropes.
