Cricket: 2nd Test, 2nd Day. India 407 All Out

Harbhajan and Kumble take India past 400

A last wicket stand of 44 runs helped India cross 400 on the 2nd morning of the 2nd test versus Pakistan at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

India lost three quick wickets and were 363 for 9 before Harbhajan Singh and Anil Kumble scored 27 and 21 to take India past the 400 runs mark before Harbhajan was out LBW to Razzaq.

Dinesh Karthik was run out on his overnight score of 28; Balaji was bowled by Afridi for 3, and Irfan was caught off the bowling of Kaneria for 8.
Danish Kaneria, Shahid Afridi, and Abdul Razzaq chipped in with three wickets each.

Pakistan open with Shahid Afridi and Taufeeq Umar. This is a good chance for Shahid to play a big innings to secure his place in the team. Irfan and Balaji vs. Shahid Afridi will be an interesting duel. Shahid Afridi is always going to be suspect in the first few overs and that's the best time to get him out.

Brief Scores. 2nd Test. 2nd Day. At 11:15 a.m. IST. (+05:30 GMT).
India...1st Innings...407 All Out
