105OUTFinn to Dhoni, out Caught by Swann!! What a ball! Almost like a dismissal in Durban or Perth. A fiery bouncer right on the body, Dhoni could not get away from that and the ball lobbed off the bat to the only slip, Swann did well to move across and take a low catch. A terrific ball to end Dhoni's resistance. Dhoni c Swann b Finn 52(114) [4s-5 6s-2]316/10
104.5FOURFinn to Dhoni, FOUR, FIFTY for Dhoni and it has been a superb knock under pressure. His love affair with Eden Gardens continues. Short delivery on the off, Dhoni goes on the backfoot and smashes it hard between extra cover and mid off for four.316/9
98SIXPanesar to Dhoni, SIX, Cook is trying to protect the single and he has succeeded. But he has conceded a huge 6! Massive from Dhoni, once again comes forward and smashes him over long on deep into the stands. All the fielders were inside, trying to protect the single and Dhoni decided to take this option309/9
97.5SIXPanesar to Dhoni, SIX, the 300 comes up for India with a six from Dhoni. Nicely tossed up on the off, Dhoni puts his frontfoot forward and effortlessly lofts him over long off. Safe shot to play as the fielder was inside the ring303/9
95.3OUTPanesar to Ishant, out Bowled!! 4th wicket for Monty and he is clapping away. Not good batting from Ishant but you can hardly blame a tail-ender. This was a well flighted half volley, Ishant exposed his stumps and played a lazy, loose drive, missed it completely and heard the sound of timber. Dhoni is stranded at the other end. Ishant b Panesar 0(3)296/9
94.5FOURAnderson to Dhoni, FOUR, he doesn't need to take the singles when he can score like that, just a bit short and angled in, Dhoni swivels and pulls it hard to the deep backward square leg fence, there are 2 men in the deep but he split them perfectly296/8

167.3OUTAshwin to Panesar, out Lbw!! That was quick. It was a thick inside edge and Panesar was not too happy. It was very full from Ashwin from round the wicket, Panesar tried to jam it out but got a big inside edge onto his pads. Dharmasena does not spot it and that ends the England innings. Panesar lbw b Ashwin 0(1)523/10
167.2OUTAshwin to Anderson, out Caught by Sehwag!! The 2nd ball again. Ashwin strikes too and Sehwag manages to just about hold on at slip. It was nicely tossed up from round the wicket, Anderson presses forward to defend but gets a thick edge as it turns away. It went low to Sehwag who got both hands to it, juggles it a bit but holds on. Anderson c Sehwag b Ashwin 9(9) [4s-1]523/9
166.4FOURZaheer to Anderson, FOUR, very full from Zaheer. Anderson leans forward and drives it nicely through cover to pick up his first boundary520/8
165FOURZaheer to Finn, FOUR, full and angled in again, Finn leans out and punches it uppishly but gets right between mid wicket and mid on. The timing was good enough to send it racing to the fence.515/8
164.2OUTZaheer to Prior, out Caught by Dhoni!! The 2nd ball of this over gets India a wicket too. It was a good length delivery outside off, Prior tries a loose cut and gets a thick edge. Dhoni took a low catch moving across to his right. Prior was asked to stop just before he went out by some official. Not sure why. Well he has gone and that is Dhoni's 200th catch in Tests too. Prior c Dhoni b Zaheer 41(49) [4s-6 6s-1]510/8
163.2OUTOjha to Swann, out Caught by Sehwag!! That's what India needed. Tossed up nicely outside off. Swann goes for the drive but tgets a thick edge and it goes straight to Sehwag at slip. He takes it comfortably and Ojha gets his 4th wicket. Swann c Sehwag b Ojha 21(46) [4s-3]510/7

84.4OUTAnderson to Ojha, out Bowled!! Anderson finally ends Ojha's vigil. Ashwin will not get to his century. Full ball that zips through just outside off, Ojha plays inside the line of the delivery and it skids past the edge, the ball thuds into the off stump and it takes some time for the bail to fall down, Anderson appealed for a catch but Prior pointed out that Ojha was bowled. Ojha b Anderson 3(25)247/10
84FOURFinn to Ashwin, FOUR, WHAM! That has been crunched by Ashwin. Short ball just outside off, Ashwin hammers the pull shot past short mid wicket and it blazes away to the deep mid wicket fence, that is also the fifty run partnership247/9
83.5FOURFinn to Ashwin, FOUR, fantastic timing from Ashwin, short of a good length ball just outside off, Ashwin presents the full face of the bat and crisply punches it past the gap at cover, it purrs away to the deep extra cover fence as the fielder does not make an attempt to chase after it243/9
81.3FOURFinn to Ashwin, FOUR, the short delivery has been put away to the deep mid wicket fence. The fielder didn't pick it as Ashwin pulled it away. Good cricketing shot from Ashwin237/9
