But Gautam Gambhir (66) and Tendulkar took upon the challenge and at one stage maintained a run rate of around five runs per over,
attacking the England bowlers. The duo added 42 runs for the third wicket.

Gambhir and Tendulkar never looked under any pressure and took singles and twos without much problem, besides sending
the odd bad balls to the ropes.
Gambhir was shaping well as he added 24 runs with Dravid and 42 with Tendulkar but one lapse of concentration saw him
back in the pavillion.
After bowling two short-pitched deliveries in previous over, James Anderson kept up the pressure on Gambhir attacking
on the off side corridor, and the Indian opener paid the price for a lapse in concentration.
Gambhir moved across and his half hearted steer end up to Paul Collingwood who moved to his left at slips and took a
good catch at gully.
