Pataudi Trophy - 1st Test

England v India

England won by 196 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

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

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   CT Tremlett 1-0-1-0

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

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   CT Tremlett 2-0-5-0

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   CT Tremlett 3-0-8-0

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   CT Tremlett 4-1-8-0

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

9.2

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

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   CT Tremlett 5-1-10-0

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

11.5

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

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   CT Tremlett 6-1-15-0

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   CT Tremlett 7-2-15-0

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

15.4

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

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   CT Tremlett 8-2-27-0

27.1

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, looked like that kept low after landing on length outside off. Dravid was on the back foot and went down quickly to defend it.

27.2

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, similar length, more predictable bounce. Sachin defends it with the angle to the leg side.

27.3

Tremlett to Dravid, 1 run, nicely played by Dravid, stands tall to a ball deviating away off the seam, and he drops it into the gully area for one.

27.4

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, steepling bounce from Tremlett, that's what he is known to produce, but too short and too wide to trouble Sachin this time.

27.5

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, iffy moment, that one kept a touch low too from just short of a length, and hit the toe end of Sachin's bat as he played back to it. It seemed to be rolling back towards the stumps area, but he stops it.

27.6

Tremlett to Tendulkar, FOUR, there are replays of this shot from Sachin's Manchester century in 1990. The back-foot punch that he plays like no one else can. This was not even that short, and he had almost no room to work with. Yet Sachin stood tall and managed to generate bat speed that defies the laws of physics. A thing of beauty, and brutality, at the same time.

India 96/2   CT Tremlett 9-2-32-0

29.1

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, another immense 'Ooh' from the crowd as Sachin plays and misses. Loose shot, looks to stay beside the line and steer from outside off, not much intent in that shot, it wasn't there for runs with such a packed cordon.

29.2

Tremlett to Tendulkar, 1 no ball, he over-steps this time, Sachin lets it go outside off easily

29.2

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, short of a length outside off, Sachin stays back, covers the line and defends.

29.3

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, Play and a miss. Exquisite, says Alan Wilkins. Unplayable says Wasim Akram. He should know. Tremlett gets this to shape in and go away from outside off, Sachin pokes forward and it goes away missing the outside egde. Even Prior fumbles this beaut.

29.4

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, this one comes in, nice stuff from Tremlett. Sachin stays back and looks to defend and is hit high on the pad.

29.5

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, this is another dimension to Tremlett, not over-doing the bouncer, using the seam well. Only 130 kph, fullish length and away movement. Much tougher to face, coming from six feet five. Sachin looks to push tentatively and misses.

29.6

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, end of a testing over, ends with a wide delivery well outside off, Sachin easily lets this one go.

India 101/2   CT Tremlett 10-2-33-0

31.1

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, short of a length from Tremlett, outside off, Dravid stays back and guides it into the cordon.

31.2

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, short again, not much bounce though Dravid accounts for it, and he comes down to adjust and defend into the covers.

31.3

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, on the pads this time, Dravid stays in the crease and defends towards the leg side.

31.4

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, peach of a legcutter from Tremlett, the appetiser for lunch. Dravid nearly falls for it. Angles in, lands on the thread and jumps up and away. Dravid is squared up and does well to drop the wrists, albeit late.

31.5

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, easier this time, doesn't go away off the seam, and Dravid defends into the off side.

31.6

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, lunch it is at Lord's, and the legends will be back to resume duties after the break. This was short and wide outside the off stump and moved away marginally, Dravid lets it go and hurries off for the meal.

India 102/2   CT Tremlett 11-3-33-0

33.1

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, length ball on off stump hinting at away movement, Dravid moves across and covers the line to defend.

33.2

Tremlett to Dravid, 1 leg bye, too straight, straying down the leg side, and Dravid fends it away backward of square leg for another single.

33.3

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, that steepling bounce again from Tremlett, but it starts from too far wide of the off stump. Sachin leaves easily.

33.4

Tremlett to Tendulkar, FOUR, Beauty. Sachin laces Tremlett on the up through covers, just purrs into position like a well-calibrated Rolls Royce engine and coaxes the length ball through the covers. He opened the wrists while driving to ensure he found the gap.

33.5

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, straighter this time, Sachin again eases into position to defend down the track.

33.6

Tremlett to Tendulkar, 1 no ball, straight and full, Sachin's well awake after lunch, and defends easily. Tremlett oversteps again.

33.6

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, angled in from wide of the crease, short of a length, Sachin is compact in back foot defence.

India 116/2   CT Tremlett 12-3-38-0

35.1

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, full ball from Tremlett, Sachin is so assured with his footwork today and again pushes it nicely towards mid-off.

35.2

Tremlett to Tendulkar, FOUR, time to bring a third man in. Sachin guides Tremlett from the off stump line past the cordon for another boundary. Short of a length, not much bounce, and Sachin had no problems in angling the face and sending it scurrying through.

35.3

Tremlett to Tendulkar, 1 run, on the pads this time, Sachin nudges through square leg for one more.

35.4

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, workman-line ball, shaping away from wide of off stump, Dravid doesn't bother with it.

35.5

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, solid from Dravid, Tremlett tries to angle this one inwards and Dravid stonewalls it with bat and pad close together as he pushes forward.

35.6

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, again, Dravid confidently comes forward to defend a length ball.

India 125/2   CT Tremlett 13-3-43-0

37.1

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, short from Tremlett, Sachin hangs back and forces the defensive stroke to the leg side. Leg slip watches keenly.

37.2

Tremlett to Tendulkar, 1 leg bye, too straight at 136.5 kph, Sachin looks to nudge through square leg, and it goes off the pad.

37.3

Tremlett to Dravid, FOUR, The Third Man is not one of Andrew Strauss' favourite movies. Four more leaked through that area, as Dravid expertly hangs back, stays beside the line and steers past the cordon. Played it down almost compulsively.

37.4

Tremlett to Dravid, 1 run, on the pads now again, Dravid works it away through square leg for one more.

37.5

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, another leg side ball, this time too far down and Sachin lets it go.

37.6

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, poor, poor shot. Sachin will be admonishing himself internally big time here. Short of a length, buzzing away late from well outside off, Sachin stays planted on the crease and tries to wave the wand at it. He doesn't touch it.

India 138/2   CT Tremlett 14-3-48-0

39.1

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, short and a bit of extra bounce from outside off, Sachin was not going to play at it.

39.2

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, good ball that, at 127 kph, angles in as Sachin reaches out to defend and it runs off the inside half of the blade to the leg side.

39.3

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, short ball angling down the leg side, Sachin shoulders arms and it goes off the hips down the leg side. Prior collects and appeals. Sunny Gavaskar says it shows how desperate they are for his wicket.

39.4

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, another good ball, nips away off the threads this time and again that extra bounce Tremlett always manages. Sachin holds the bat inside the line.

39.5

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, hmm, fish and a miss. Every now and then, Sachin's playing a false stroke. Short of a length outside off, unless Tremlett has bowled many indippers, this is not a ball to be played at. But Sachin does, and misses.

39.6

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, really good over from Tremlett, finishes with another one that goes away, Sachin covers the line well this time and steers towards gully.

India 150/2   CT Tremlett 15-4-48-0

41.1

Tremlett to Dravid, 1 run, legcutter to Dravid, he adjusts to it really well and drops towards point for a single off the back foot.

41.2

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, again Sachin, curiously, stays back to a length ball but deals with it well in the end. Defended to the leg side as it angles in towards middle and off.

41.3

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, fuller, a touch too wide of the off stump at 128 kph, Sachin doesn't play this time.

41.4

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, angles in towards the pads this time, Sachin looks to work it to the leg side and keeps it down. Bell is prowling at short leg.

41.5

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, four inches, may be five between the ball and off stump! Sachin shoulders arms daringly to a short of length ball outside off that holds its line and whistles past.

41.6

Tremlett to Tendulkar, 2 runs, where did that come from? 136 kph, over-pitched outside off and shaping away, Sachin is foxed by the subtle change in line and length, he reaches for it without getting across and scoops the drive in the air over the covers. The nervous Lord's 30s for Sachin, possibly.

India 154/2   CT Tremlett 16-4-51-0

55.1

Tremlett to Laxman, no run, starts with a cracker. Hits the deck at a good length and zips it away past Laxman's dangling outside edge

55.2

Tremlett to Laxman, no run, Laxman hanging back and Tremlett finds a good line and length again

55.3

Tremlett to Laxman, FOUR, anywhere near the pads and Laxman gets to unleash his perfect timing. Barely touched it and it pinged to the boundary at midwicket

55.4

Tremlett to Laxman, no run, Tremlett's response is to drag his length back a touch. Laxman looks comfortable now

55.5

Tremlett to Laxman, OUT, absolute bonus for England! Laxman has gifted his wicket. Nothing delivery from Tremlett but Laxman flicked it off his hip in the air, straight to deep backwards square. Strange dismissal but Strauss especially will be delighted

VVS Laxman c Trott b Tremlett 10 (46m 36b 2x4 0x6) SR: 27.77

55.6

Tremlett to Raina, no run, Raina gets a sighter first up as Tremlett shoves this across him

India 182/4   CT Tremlett 17-4-55-1

57.1

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, steams in this delivery but it's outside off stump and left alone. Plenty depends on Dravid now, probably just the way he likes it

57.2

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, big grunt from Tremlett as he delivers. Decent line outside off but Dravid won't be drawn into a shot

57.3

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, good delivery this one, corrected the line and forced Dravid to block his off stump

57.4

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, excellent delivery, fuller and nipping away off the deck. Dravid definitely poked at it but luckily for him it moved too far

57.5

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, again Tremlett heads full, trying desperately to draw Dravid into a stroke but the batsman has none of it

57.6

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, poor delivery to end a good over, shoved down the leg side

India 183/5   CT Tremlett 18-5-55-1

59.1

Tremlett to Dravid, 1 no ball, another no ball from Tremlett. Saker will be in his ear this evening. Not sure what he can do to change things though

59.1

Tremlett to Dravid, 1 run, just a little bit too straight from the bowler and Dravid tucks a single to leg

59.2

Tremlett to Dhoni, no run, good delivery from Tremlett to Dhoni, zips away from a length and past the outside edge

59.3

Tremlett to Dhoni, no run, if Dhoni is at all concerned he doesn't look it. Coolly defends as if he was in the park

59.4

Tremlett to Dhoni, no run, Tremlett ventures fuller but Dhoni remains unconcerned

59.5

Tremlett to Dhoni, no run, in a different mood Dhoni could have had a dart at this, it was very full. Instead patted gently back to the bowler

59.6

Tremlett to Dhoni, no run, quiet defence from Dhoni, well-advised, too

India 189/5   CT Tremlett 19-5-57-1

81.1

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, underwhelming start from Tremlett, short and down the leg side

81.2

Tremlett to Dravid, 1 run, similar delivery and this time Dravid connects with his leg-side flick, jogging through for a single

81.3

Tremlett to Dhoni, no run, good ball this time, some splice-jarring bounce and Dhoni does well to defend solidly

81.4

Tremlett to Dhoni, no run, similar good line around off stump, but a fuller length would be more dangerous

81.5

Tremlett to Dhoni, 1 run, short ball but not short enough to worry Dhoni, who swivels and pulls gently down to fine leg

81.6

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, left alone easily outside off stump to end another quiet new-ball over. It's only Broad, of the three pacemen, who has regularly threatened today. Who would have wagered that before play?

India 239/5   CT Tremlett 20-5-59-1

83.1

Tremlett to Dravid, 1 run, curiously, this seems to come off the pitch very slowly. Dravid appeared to have an age to knock a single to leg. Maybe he's just in good nick

83.2

Tremlett to Dhoni, no run, good delivery from Tremlett here, fuller, nipping back past the inside edge into Dhoni's midriff

83.3

Tremlett to Dhoni, no run, good full length again and Dhoni walks behind it to defend

83.4

Tremlett to Dhoni, OUT, caught at slip! That's what the new ball was meant to do! Tremlett gets his length right again, finds the outside edge as Dhoni defended tentatively from the crease, Swann tumbled smartly to his left to pouch it safely

MS Dhoni c Swann b Tremlett 28 (102m 103b 2x4 0x6) SR: 27.18

83.5

Tremlett to Harbhajan Singh, 1 no ball, Tremlett's response is to slam it in short, which means the batsman's tactic worked! Struck the batsman in the midriff as he thought about trying to pull. No ball too, probably caused by Tremlett flying in

83.5

Tremlett to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, Harbhajan goes now! Poor shot really. Back of a length outside off stump, Harbhajan flirted at it with his feet rooted to the crease and only managed to feather an edge

Harbhajan Singh c †Prior b Tremlett 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

83.6

Tremlett to Kumar, no run, oooh, Tremlett almost had another here. Kumar didn't fancy it at all. Stood still and limply waved his bat outside off as the ball climbed past

India 241/7   CT Tremlett 21-5-61-3

85.1

Tremlett to Dravid, 1 run, Dravid happy to take the single, I imagine Tremlett is pleased as well. Dravid 14 away from the honours board

85.2

Tremlett to Kumar, 3 runs, Kumar has taken it upon himself to swish India past the follow on! Backs away and slaps a length ball, without much timing over mid-off

85.3

Tremlett to Dravid, 1 run, Tremlett goes full to Dravid, good delivery too but it takes more than 'good' to get past Dravid

85.4

Tremlett to Kumar, 1 run, Tremlett was half-way through to celebrating as he saw this yorker homing in on middle but Kumar, backing away, managed to inside edge a hack to fine leg. Great entertainment

85.5

Tremlett to Dravid, FOUR, hacking at one end, complete style at the other. Dravid on-drives a full ball all along the carpet, past mid-on for four. Takes him into the 90s

85.6

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, solid block from a shortish ball around off stump

India 264/7   CT Tremlett 22-5-71-3

87.1

Tremlett to Dravid, 1 run, Dravid is being given singles by Strauss and is happy to take them

87.2

Tremlett to Kumar, 1 run, dug in short and around the hip, Kumar tucked it away merrily to leave India one away. Dravid, meanwhile, needs seven to reach a fantastic hundred

87.3

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, carefully blocked to cover

87.4

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, after all the flurry we've had of late it's nice to get a simple leave-alone outside off

87.5

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, Tremlett aims full and finds the even fuller face of Dravid's broad defence

87.6

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, Kumar has strike after Dravid blocks solidly.

India 274/7   CT Tremlett 23-5-73-3

89.1

Tremlett to Dravid, (no ball) FOUR, Dravid hops, the ball does not get up that much, he adjusts, he crouches, he puts it away with a punch through extra cover, in the air all the time, it is a no-ball as well

89.2

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, this one moves away from outside off, he will let it go, as always

89.3

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, lunges forward, in a manner that reminds you of the man he overtook for second-most Test runs, sees the ball is not to be fiddled with and shoulders arms

89.4

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, Tremlett goes much fuller and on the stumps, forces Dravid to play, his bat comes down straight and pushes the ball calmly down the track

89.5

Tremlett to Dravid, 2 runs, that is what could not be done in 1996, Rahul Dravid shouts for joy as he puts this one past mid on, he punches the air, Lord's stands up, hug from Zaheer Khan, hug from Suresh Raina, lots of emotion from a man not given to showing them, the applause just does not seem to stop

89.6

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, and then normal service resumes as it has done for all those years, outside off stump and it shall not be messed with, up go the arms and the ball passes by

89.6

Tremlett to Dravid, no run, bat and pad close together, the ball comes darting in with the angle, but of discomfort but no harm done as bat is that meets the ball in front of pad and it is pushed away on the on side
