30.1

Trott to Dravid, no run, slow and over-pitched outside off, Dravid inside-edges a cover drive onto his pad.

30.2

Trott to Dravid, no run, Dravid showing the kind of technique that you normally associate with defending Ambrose. High elbow, bat under the head, full face, full flourish. Defense.

Trott to Dravid, 1 run, on the pads this time, Dravid lets it come on and nudges through square leg for one.

30.4

Trott to Tendulkar, no run, he's rolling his fingers over this balls, looking for the one that goes away, Sachin leans out to punch to mid-on.

30.6

Trott to Tendulkar, no run, short of a length on off stump to end the over, Sachin defends from the crease.

India 102/2   IJL Trott 1-0-1-0

71.1

Trott to Dravid, no run, full on off stump, driven into the covers

71.2

Trott to Dravid, FOUR, shot! This is real classy stuff from Dravid. He stepped right to the pitch of a wobbly, floaty half-volley and threaded the ball perfectly through the gap at cover

71.3

Trott to Dravid, no run, a hint of inside edge as Dravid pushes forward in defence

71.4

Trott to Dravid, 1 run, turned off the front pad, and a single taken to square leg

71.5

Trott to Dhoni, no run, Dhoni walks out at Trott, but the ball is not there to be hit and he defends. Prior to come up to the stumps? Not yet.

71.6

Trott to Dhoni, no run, driven with plenty of bottom hand, Strauss at short extra diving to cut it off

India 220/5   IJL Trott 2-0-6-0

73.1

Trott to Dhoni, 1 run, slipping towards leg, it's nudged off the pad for one

73.2

73.3

Trott to Dravid, no run, another outswinger outside off, once again Dravid is quite happy to offer no shot

73.4

Trott to Dravid, 1 run, Trott tries to angle this one in, but slips towards leg stump once again and is easily milked for a single

73.5

Trott to Dhoni, no run, Dhoni wasn't quite sure how to deal with this inswinger on a length, and eventually just stood at the crease and thrust his hands at it. Struck on the thigh

73.6

Trott to Dhoni, no run, shaping away from the bat outside off, very wide indeed and there's no need for a shot from Dhoni

India 224/5   IJL Trott 3-0-8-0

75.1

Trott to Dhoni, no run, lunging defence from Dhoni

75.2

Trott to Dhoni, no run, a slow outswinger is floated up temptingly outside off, but Dhoni doesn't take the bait

75.3

Trott to Dhoni, no run, beaten on the outside edge! Dhoni was forward again and this one just nipped away from him down the slope. Play and miss

75.4

Trott to Dhoni, no run, Dhoni comes right forward and pushes to cover

75.5

Trott to Dhoni, no run, more dibbly-dobbly stuff from Trott, and watchful defence from Dhoni

75.6

Trott to Dhoni, no run, and solid defence to end the over

India 226/5   IJL Trott 4-1-8-0

77.1

Trott to Dhoni, no run, lobbed down outside off, and Dhoni has the good sense not to offer any shot

India 230/5   IJL Trott 5-1-10-0

79.1

Trott to Dravid, no run, Trott steaming in for the last over with the old ball, we presume. Dravid defends

79.2

Trott to Dravid, no run, floated up by Trott this time, devastating lack of pace. The fifty stand is up, by the way, mighty important too

79.3

Trott to Dravid, no run, full ball squeezed out to cover by Dravid

79.4

Trott to Dravid, no run, hint of an inside edge here, almost made Dravid look unstylish

79.6

Trott to Dhoni, 1 run, right, with a flick to deep square the old ball should have seen its last outing
