Pataudi Trophy - 1st Test

England v India

England won by 196 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

0.2

Anderson to Gambhir, FOUR, Gambhir is away straight away. Confident start, eased into a square drive and it needed a diving stop from Trott to just about haul the ball back in time? Ah, no. It's given four

0.3

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, poor from Anderson. Gambhir blocked this back to him and Anderson fired the ball back at his head. He apologised afterwards but really

0.4

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, this time it's outside off stump, Gambhir defends crisply

0.5

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, after that excellent first ball Anderson is a touch off line. This swings a long way away from the left-hander

0.6

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, another outswinger to finish the over. Gambhir leaves. Anderson then walks up to him to apologise again, good to see that

India 5/0   G Gambhir 4* (5b 1x4)

1.5

Tremlett to Gambhir, no run, good delivery here. Back of a length, going across Gambhir. The batsman fishes slightly, guiding towards Pietersen who dives well at gully to field

1.6

Tremlett to Gambhir, no run, finishes the over as he started it, with a wild ball down the leg side

India 6/0   G Gambhir 4* (7b 1x4)

3.1

Tremlett to Gambhir, 3 runs, good start from the bowler but even better from Gambhir, placing his bat in line to a full ball and it speeds down the ground. Good timing

India 13/0   G Gambhir 7* (8b 1x4)

4.1

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, looks better from that angle. But still too far outside off to bother Gambhir

4.2

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, too wide again. Gambhir will be delighted with this

4.3

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, much better line, starting off and decking away. Now if he did that at a fuller length it would be perfect

4.4

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, Anderson jumped wide to sharpen the angle, but it was too short and wide of off to interest Gambhir

4.5

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, wide again outside off. Gah

4.6

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, another leave to end the over. Strauss should give Swann ago before the night is out

India 14/0   G Gambhir 7* (14b 1x4)

6.1

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, Anderson hits the seam straight away, this one pitching and leaving Gambhir from an off stump line. Left well alone

6.2

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, angling across the left-hander once more, and he can leave safely on line

6.3

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, cracking delivery! Gambhir was drawn forward into a defensive push but beaten by another that left him through the air and off the pitch

6.4

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, pushed slightly wider, this one can be left quite easily. Is he setting him up for one that swings back in?

6.5

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, well, this is much straighter, but tailing away through the air once again. Solid defence from Gambhir

6.6

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, appreciable movement away once more, Gambhir has got his feet moving and is well forward to defend to point

India 17/0   G Gambhir 7* (20b 1x4)

8.1

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, Anderson steams in and flings down an away swinger, which is left alone

8.2

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, jagging away from Gambhir once again, and the batsman isn't interested in the shot

8.3

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, straighter from Anderson, landing on a leg stump line. Gambhir defends from the crease

8.4

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, good, judicious leave. This one was right up to Gambhir, but he stepped to it and raised the bat out of the way

8.5

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, pushed across his bows once more, Gambhir is patient and leaves

8.6

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, great finish for Anderson, this one explodes from a length to nip past Gambhir's prodding defence

India 17/0   G Gambhir 7* (26b 1x4)

9.2

Tremlett to Gambhir, 1 run, Gambhir stretches forward to a full, very wide delivery, slicing the drive towards gully ... it wasn't in the air, but not the most controlled shot either

India 19/0   G Gambhir 8* (27b 1x4)

10.1

Anderson to Gambhir, 3 runs, shot. Nothing more than a firm push, Gambhir stepping forward and presenting the full face of the bat to send the ball rolling down the ground

10.6

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, Anderson goes wider of off, and a leave is the result

India 25/0   G Gambhir 11* (29b 1x4)

11.5

Tremlett to Gambhir, 1 run, tip-and-run from Gambhir, a well-judged call for a single

India 30/0   G Gambhir 12* (30b 1x4)

13.1

Tremlett to Gambhir, no run, flung down far too wide to get the batsman playing

13.2

Tremlett to Gambhir, no run, flicked off the hip, Bell fields sharply at short leg

13.3

Tremlett to Gambhir, no run, curving in and bouncing off a length, the ball is tucked to short leg once more

13.4

Tremlett to Gambhir, no run, ouch. Gambhir steps across to leave but the ball seamed sharply back in to him, striking him a stinging blow on the upper thigh. A little rub, and he's ready to go again

13.5

Tremlett to Gambhir, no run, rising off a length on off stump, Gambhir hops up on his toes to guide to gully

13.6

Tremlett to Gambhir, no run, another Tremlett lifter outside off, but it's wide enough to be safely left alone

India 39/0   G Gambhir 12* (36b 1x4)

15.1

Tremlett to Gambhir, no run, left on line and length. Take your pick

15.2

Tremlett to Gambhir, no run, rising towards Gambhir's midriff. He stands tall to ride the bounce

15.3

Tremlett to Gambhir, 1 run, glanced off the hip to fine leg. There were cries of "catch it" aimed at Bell, but it was wide of him at short leg

15.6

Tremlett to Gambhir, 1 no ball, another no-ball from the big man, this one defended from the crease

15.6

Tremlett to Gambhir, no run, curving down the leg side, the batsman can't get a touch on it

India 56/0   G Gambhir 13* (41b 1x4)

17.1

Anderson to Gambhir, 1 run, swinging in through the air, but short of a good length and tucked defensively to leg

17.4

Anderson to Gambhir, no run, dropped close on the off side. There's a discussion about a single, but eventually it's turned down

17.5

Anderson to Gambhir, 1 run, tapped softly into the covers, it's in the gap so the single is on this time

India 63/0   G Gambhir 15* (44b 1x4)

18.1

Broad to Gambhir, no run, full and curving sharply in through the air. Gambhir drives to mid-off, but with no great certainty

18.2

Broad to Gambhir, OUT, clatter! Full, straight and swinging. Broad makes a mess of Gambhir's stumps with a superb delivery that swerved back in between bat and pad. He's got the reward for keeping the ball up to the bat, and isn't he happy. He even turns round to appeal!

G Gambhir b Broad 15 (87m 46b 1x4 0x6) SR: 32.60

India 63/1   G Gambhir 15 (46b 1x4)
