Pataudi Trophy - 1st Test

England v India

England won by 196 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

0.1

Anderson to Mukund, 1 run, swing straight away for Anderson! Almost squeezed through! Full, quickish and Mukund just about got an inside edge in time

India 1/0   A Mukund 1* (1b)

1.1

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, Tremlett often takes a couple overs to find his best. This is a grim start, fired a long way down the leg side. Prior did well to save

1.2

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, and again, good line to a right hander maybe, but Mukund gets another sighter

1.3

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, not a great delivery but not a great shot either. Floated up full outside off, Mukund aims a drive but misses

1.4

Tremlett to Mukund, 1 run, this time Tremlett finds a good line but Mukund stands tall and defends well, guiding it past Ian Bell at short leg

India 6/0   A Mukund 2* (5b)

2.1

Anderson to Mukund, no run, inswinger from Anderson to Mukund. Nicely played back towards the bowler who tumbles in his follow through to field

2.2

Anderson to Mukund, 2 runs, tucked away with the swing towards midwicket

2.3

Anderson to Mukund, no run, neatly played by Mukund, just pushing this towards mid-on. These are good conditions to bat in if he can survive the night

2.4

Anderson to Mukund, no run, Anderson pulls his length back a touch. Mukund stands tall to defend

2.5

Anderson to Mukund, no run, again this is a touch short of a good length. Mukund looks to work to leg but misses it

2.6

Anderson to Mukund, 2 runs, good delivery from Anderson. Fuller and swinging in, combination of inside edge and placement sends this to midwicket

India 10/0   A Mukund 6* (11b)

3.2

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, Tremlett struggled with the slope in the Sri Lanka Test and this is off line again

3.3

Tremlett to Mukund, 1 no ball, better ball - on a length outside off - but he's overstepped. England bowlers rarely overstep but when they do, Tremlett is often the man

3.3

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, once again it's shoved down the leg side, much to the bowler's disgust

3.4

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, that's better. Fuller, straighter, nipping back a touch. Rapped the pads but it was heading well over

3.5

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, fuller length this time, finds the pads once more, but it was missing leg stump

3.6

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, and pushed harmlessly across Mukund to finish the over. India will be pleased with what they've had so far

India 14/0   A Mukund 6* (17b)

5.1

Tremlett to Mukund, 2 runs, good ball from Tremlett, fullish and around off stump. Mukund leans into it nicely and steers a couple past point. Confident start from him

5.2

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, touch of extra bounce but Mukund comfortably behind it in defence

5.3

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, good again from Tremlett, hanging the ball around off stump. Mukund forward this time in crisp defence

5.4

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, this looked very, very close! Mukund was rooted to the crease but Tremlett went much fuller. Struck him in front, looked straight. No DRS of course, possibly pitched outside? Yes it did

5.5

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, less alarm here for Mukund, just flags it through to Prior

5.6

Tremlett to Mukund, 1 no ball, oh dear! That looked out but Tremlett overstepped. Miles over too. Swung in at a full length, possibly would have missed leg but cripes

5.6

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, Mukund solidly behind the last ball. Much better over from Tremlett to end an excellent day for England

India 17/0   A Mukund 8* (24b)

7.1

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, good start, Tremlett seams one in off the pitch to take the inside edge of a defensive bat

7.2

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, hurled down on a length outside off, Mukund hops and leaves alone

7.3

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, Tremlett floats one fuller, inviting a drive, but Mukund resists, stepping across to shoulder arms

7.4

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, full and straight, Mukund is on the front foot to defend

7.5

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, ooh, there's a speculative appeal as Tremlett gets one to seam sharply back in to the left-hander's pads. Too high, and possibly doing too much. Good ball though

7.6

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, pushed wider once again, and left well alone

India 17/0   A Mukund 8* (30b)

9.1

Tremlett to Mukund, 1 run, the first run of the morning! Mukund drops a length delivery close in on the off side. With so many men behind the bat there's a gap there and a single to be had

9.3

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, Mukund waits in the crease and defends to gully

9.4

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, more seam movement for Tremlett, back in to the left-hander, but the ball landed well wide of off stump and was easily left alone

9.5

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, nice, tight line from Tremlett, but Mukund's defensive bat keeps the ball away from off stump

9.6

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, just short of a good length and just wide enough to be left alone

India 19/0   A Mukund 9* (35b)

10.2

Anderson to Mukund, no run, beaten outside off! Significant help off the pitch for Anderson, and the line was such that Mukund had to play at it. "Pitch it up," suggests Sahil

10.3

Anderson to Mukund, no run, slightly wider this time, and Mukund is happy to leave alone

10.4

Anderson to Mukund, no run, pitched up, but wider still and Mukund doesn't even think about a shot

10.5

Anderson to Mukund, 3 runs, variation from Anderson, this one snaking back in through the air. Mukund's reply is good, however, a nice straight bat driving the ball down the ground. Broad is after it, hauling it in before the boundary

India 25/0   A Mukund 12* (39b)

11.1

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, Tremlett slams the ball down on a length outside off, Mukund raises his bat to leave

11.2

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, splice-jarring delivery from Tremlett, but it's reasonably well-played by Mukund, who hopped up to fend the ball from his arm-pit. Well, Tremlett has over-stepped here, but that was very tight indeed

11.3

Tremlett to Mukund, 1 no ball, Mukund is stung on the hip by another lifter that nips past his defensive poke

11.3

Tremlett to Mukund, no run, fended just short of Trott at gully! This rose up at Mukund from a length, he stood at the crease and pushed the bat out and is lucky is a thick outside edge lands in front of the diving fielder

11.4

Tremlett to Mukund, 3 runs, good response from the batsman, who seizes on a full delivery to drive through extra cover

11.6

Tremlett to Mukund, 1 leg bye, a wild flail from Mukund! Tremlett sent to a brutish bouncer that was on to him in a flash, Mukund swivelled into a flashing hook, eyes firmly shut, and the ball pinged off the grille of his helmet. The batsman fell to the ground, losing his shoe in the process, but was aware enough to get up and take the leg-bye. Yes, he picked up his shoe and ran with it!

India 31/0   A Mukund 15* (45b)

12.1

Anderson to Mukund, no run, full, straight and swinging away through the air. Solidly defended

12.2

Anderson to Mukund, 2 runs, Mukund stays back to punch another away swinger through the covers for a couple

12.3

Anderson to Mukund, FOUR, flashed through gully! This was full, wide and just too tempting for Mukund, who stepped forward and sliced the ball in the air but in the gap behind the wicket. Close ...

12.4

Anderson to Mukund, no run, Mukund is a little more cautious this time, leaving alone outside off

12.5

Anderson to Mukund, 2 runs, sliced square again! Well, Mukund is starting to look a little frenetic now. This wasn't there for the drive but he stepped into the shot, sending the ball flying away in the air through backward point. Anderson comes down the wicket to have a word with the batsman ...

12.6

Anderson to Mukund, no run, left alone to end the over - an expensive one, but there were chances created

India 39/0   A Mukund 23* (51b 1x4)

14.1

Broad to Mukund, 1 no ball, well, he certainly does to start with. Full and swinging back in to the batsman, a good probing delivery. Except, it's a no-ball.

14.1

Broad to Mukund, no run, full once more, but speared down the leg side and the swing takes it even further

14.2

Broad to Mukund, no run, rising off a length, Mukund shoulders arms

14.3

Broad to Mukund, FOUR, well, it's pitched up, yes, but it's on the leg stump and Mukund eases the ball to the boundary with a wristy flick.

14.4

Broad to Mukund, no run, Broad's not quite got his line right yet, this one goes down the leg side as well

14.5

Broad to Mukund, no run, pushed down the leg again. Surely not going for the leg-side strangle, his radar isn't quite set yet

14.6

Broad to Mukund, no run, there's the short one, bouncing outside off. Mukund sways out of the way

India 44/0   A Mukund 27* (58b 2x4)

15.4

Tremlett to Mukund, FOUR, flicked off the pads, the ball coming right out of the middle and racing to the midwicket boundary. He didn't try to hit it too hard, the shot was all timing. Reminiscent of the shot Trott plays an awful lot

15.5

Tremlett to Mukund, (no ball) FOUR, Mukund takes the opening stand to fifty with another well-timed whip to the leg-side boundary - square leg this time

15.5

Tremlett to Mukund, 1 run, tight single! That was very tight indeed, Tapped towards KP and they just set off, the shy came in but Pietersen was off-balance and it went wide of the wicket. Not far away though

India 55/0   A Mukund 36* (61b 4x4)

16.1

Broad to Mukund, no run, sharp yorker! This took Mukund by surprise, but he managed to jam the bat down on it just in time. Or did he? Replays suggest that was boot first. No appeal from anyone. If there had been, that was out!

16.2

Broad to Mukund, 2 runs, flicked off the pads, two runs the result

16.3

Broad to Mukund, no run, full of length but landing a foot outside off. Left alone

Broad to Mukund, no run, beaten! This was full again, and where the others had curved back in this one hit the pitch and moved away, past Mukund's prod

16.6

Broad to Mukund, no run, and full to finish, the ball swinging in to rap Mukund's pad. Going down leg, for sure

India 60/0   A Mukund 40* (67b 4x4)

17.2

Anderson to Mukund, no run, pushed full across Mukund, who steps across to cover his off stump and leaves alone

17.3

Anderson to Mukund, 1 run, swing for Anderson, but the line is a little too far down the leg side and he's able to pick off an easy single

17.6

Anderson to Mukund, no run, bending across Mukund through the air, it's full and reasonably straight and so he comes forward to defend

India 63/0   A Mukund 41* (70b 4x4)

19.1

Anderson to Mukund, 1 run, Anderson lands one on a full length, swinging in towards middle. Mukund defends, the ball rolls into a gap and they take a single

20.1

Broad to Mukund, FOUR, Broad is in the midst of a probing spell, but Mukund has a great response to a full, swinging ball - driving it firmly down the ground for four

20.4

Broad to Mukund, no run, Broad pulls his length right back, Mukund sways out of the way to leave

20.5

Broad to Mukund, 1 run, whipped off the pads out into the deep, but Broad has protection out in the deep

India 69/1   A Mukund 47* (76b 5x4)

21.1

Anderson to Mukund, 1 run, not great pace from Anderson, but decent movement through the air and it's nudged through square leg

India 70/1   A Mukund 48* (77b 5x4)

22.1

Broad to Mukund, no run, pushed right across the left-hander, who leaves alone

22.2

Broad to Mukund, no run, fairly wide and full again, this time Mukund has a drive, the ball bouncing to extra cover

22.3

Broad to Mukund, no run, curving in appreciably through the air, the ball takes the inside half of the bat and rolls to leg

22.4

22.5

Broad to Mukund, no run, Broad keeps Mukund deep in the crease with a back-of-a-length delivery, defended to cover

22.6

Broad to Mukund, no run, pushed firmly to cover to end the over

India 74/1   A Mukund 48* (83b 5x4)

23.3

Anderson to Mukund, 1 run, Abhinav is looking the part here. Full ball on his pads and he clips it neatly through square leg for one more

India 76/1   A Mukund 49* (84b 5x4)

24.1

Broad to Mukund, 1 wide, Broad does a Harmison, miles outside off and it swings away further.

24.1

Broad to Mukund, no run, he's getting a nice shape going away from Abhinav, who leans out and shoulders arms as it zooms away from a length.

24.2

Broad to Mukund, no run, beaten outside off, smart ball from Broad, sends it down from slightly wide of the stumps and gets it to angle in and straighten from a length. Abhinav feels for it and doesn't edge.

24.3

Broad to Mukund, no run, a touch wider this time, much easier leave for Abhinav.

24.4

Broad to Mukund, OUT, Abhinav out for 48 in his previous Test, and out for 49 this time. The milestone was clearly playing on his mind, that can happen to you. Especially at Lord's. Broad keeps it full and wide of off, he should not have played at that. Abhinav reaches across with a gaping bat-pad gap and an angled face. The ball hits the inside edge and crashes into the stumps. Abhinav is crushed with disappointment, as he should be.

A Mukund b Broad 49 (117m 88b 5x4 0x6) SR: 55.68

India 77/2   A Mukund 49 (88b 5x4)
