Kumble to Strauss, SIX, short ball, hopeless long-hop and Strauss pulls it away over the midwicket fence and that's the first six of the match. Strauss continues to pile on the runs, India badly need a breakthrough!

England 113/1   AJ Strauss 65* (111b 6x4 1x6)   A Kumble 11.3-2-28-0

73.3

Harbhajan Singh to Pietersen, SIX, MAX! tossed up and turning in, Pietersen comes down the track to the pitch of the delivery and wallops it over the long-off fence, typical Pietersen shot

England 225/1   KP Pietersen 24* (44b 2x4 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 12.3-1-54-0

87.4

Harbhajan Singh to Flintoff, SIX, tossed up on the stumps, Flintoff advances down the track, nicely gets to the pitch of the delivery and lofts it over the long-on fence, good clean hit

England 269/3   A Flintoff 15* (24b 2x4 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 19.4-3-68-1

94.5

Pathan to Flintoff, SIX, back of a length and down the leg side, Flintoff stands tall on the back-foot, gets right on top of the bounce and hooks well, ball sails over the fine leg fence, fielder in the deep had no chance of getting anywhere near that, top shot

England 294/3   A Flintoff 27* (45b 3x4 2x6)   IK Pathan 11.5-1-60-0

101.6

Patel to Flintoff, SIX, short ball and Flintoff instinctively goes after it, connects well and the ball sails down to the fine leg region, Pathan in the deep takes it cleanly but fails to stay inside the rope, close call - frustration continues for Patel!

England 312/3   A Flintoff 41* (64b 4x4 3x6)   MM Patel 24-4-65-0

125.3

Harbhajan Singh to Shah, (no ball) SIX, take that! tossed up and turning in, Shah dances down the track, nicely gets to the pitch of the delivery and lofts it away well over the long-on fence, it's a no-ball as well

England 379/8   OA Shah 84* (157b 12x4 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 22.2-3-79-1
