India On Day 1-4

Thus,entering into day 5,India declared at 184/4 leaving pakistan to chase a mamoth total of 345.It was all cheers for India when Zaheer got the first break through for india by getting Yasir(Hameed) caught & bowled for 14.

Immidiately the first ball after lunch,Kumble had Kamran Akmal bowled by a on-spinning delivery which went on to hit the leg stump.Next Salman Butt and Younus Khan batted beautifully untill Butt was given leg before for Kumble.An outstanding offcutter from Munaf Patel saw Misbah(who demolished Indian dreams in the 1st innings) make his way back to the pavilion.Pakistan reeling at 78/4 was expected to mess up things but to be mistaken.A solid defence from Younus Khan and Mohd Yousuf never let that happen.For the Pakistanis never lost another wicket for the rest of the innings.The match ended in a thrilling draw leaving lessons for both the teams.
