Cricket: 2nd Test. India 344 for 6 at Stumps on Day One.

India v. Pakistan. 2nd Test. End of 1st Day's Play.

Honours even as Rahul Dravid departs in the last over.
Rahul Dravid was out for 110 runs (222 balls, 15 fours, 1 six) in the last over of the day's play, and that left honours even at stumps on day one of the 2nd test between India and Pakistan played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

India were 344 for 6 at stumps on day one, losing three quick wickets in the post-tea session to collapse from 225 for 2 to 298 for 5. Rahul Darvid was out in the last over of the day, caught behind by Kamran Akmal—his third catch of the day, off the bowling of Danish Kaneria.

Rahul Dravid completed his 19th Test match hundred and shared good partnerships with Virender Sehwag (81), Sachin Tendulkar (52), and Dinesh Karthik (28 not out).

Virender Sehwag's strokeplay, Rahul Dravid's century, Sachin's 10000 Test runs, and Razzaq's wickets in the afternoon were the highlights of the day.
