120.5

Kumar to Swann, no run, testing delivery! Kumar sends down a full inswinger, but Swann brings his bat down to defend in good time

120.6

Kumar to Swann, no run, bouncer from Kumar! It's gentle stuff really, but Swann wasn't expecting it and ducks underneath the rising delivery at the last moment. Kumar has a smile on his face now, and he's politely clapped back to his position on the boundary by an appreciative crowd

England 390/7   GP Swann 0* (2b)

121.6

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, no run, Swann lunges forward to defend back down the track

England 401/7   GP Swann 1* (4b)

123.1

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, no run, tossed up outside off, not much turn though and it's easily defended by Swann

123.2

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, 1 run, Bhajji puts a little more work on this one and finds the inside edge of a defensive prod, but a single is the result as the ball rolls away on the leg side

England 402/7   GP Swann 2* (6b)

124.1

Sharma to Swann, no run, full on off stump, Swann leans forward to punch to cover

124.2

Sharma to Swann, no run, Sharma zones in on the top of off once again, and Swann defends from the crease

124.3

Sharma to Swann, no run, that's a snorter! Sharma hits a length on off stump, the ball landing on the seam and jagging away from Swann, who had committed to a shot. Beaten on the outside edge

124.4

Sharma to Swann, no run, a mis-timed pull loops in the air towards mid-on, but drops a good metre or two in front of the fielder

124.5

Sharma to Swann, no run, and now Sharma goes past the inside edge of Swann's bat with one that comes in off the pitch. That wasn't far away from off stump

124.6

Sharma to Swann, no run, beaten outside off! Consistent line on off stump from Sharma, and once again Swann can't lay bat on it

125.2

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, 2 runs, Swann goes down on one knee to sweep to fine leg

125.4

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, no run, ah, good shots and bad. Swann makes a complete mess of a reverse sweep, and is lucky to be there as Billy Bowden turns down Harbhajan's appeal. That was mighty close indeed. Plumb, you might say

125.5

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, 1 run, nudged just behind square on the leg side for one

127.2

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, FOUR, slogged to midwicket! Swann bends into a powerful sweep to collect his second boundary

127.3

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, 4 runs, chopped down very fine, this time it has the beating of Tendulkar at short third man and has to be chased down. Time for them to run four

127.4

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, 1 run, pushed through square leg for a single

127.6

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, FOUR, that's how to play the switch-hit! Swann gets into position early and the ball pings right out of the middle
