England Cools India's Record-Breaking Run

NOTTINGHAM, England -- Indian batsmen Saurav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar added only one more run to their record-breaking stand of 254 when England hit back with an early wicket Friday.


Ganguly was still on 136 when he drove loosely at left-armer Alan Mullally only to hit him straight to Nasser Hussain in the gully. That made the score 288 for three after India had added only a wide to its overnight total.


In a testing session for the Indians on the second day of the third Test at Trent Bridge, Tendulkar (169 not out) and Sanjay Manjrekar (30 not out) added 80 runs as India moved to 367 for three at lunch.


Ganguly also scored a century on his debut at Lord's in the second, drawn Test and his third wicket partnership with Tendulkar was the highest by India in England. His innings here lasted 361 minutes and included 16 fours and two sixes as he became the sixth player in history to score successive centuries in his first two Tests.


It was a thoughtful piece of bowling by Mullally whose ninth Test wicket came immediately after a rising delivery struck Ganguly on his finger and demanded on-field attention.


Mullally, Dominic Cork and Chris Lewis bowled with venom throughout the tense morning session and were unlucky not to pick up another wicket.


Manjrekar survived a confident lbw appeal by Mullally, and as he dawdled out of his crease, Cork, at silly-mid-off threw done the stumps, but the second appeal was also denied.
