England v India

England won by 196 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

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   SCJ Broad 1-0-5-0

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

16.4

Broad to Mukund, 2 runs, full, fast and swinging. The ball takes the inside half of the bat and rolls through square leg

16.5

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   SCJ Broad 2-0-9-0

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

18.3

Broad to Dravid, no run, full once more, pitched up outside off and Dravid comes forward into a nervous-looking drive

18.4

Broad to Dravid, no run, swinging away through the air off a good length, Dravid steps down the pitch and raises his arms into an extravagant leave

18.5

Broad to Dravid, no run, floated up very full outside off, Dravid has a look and keeps bat away from ball

18.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, pitched right up once more, dug out to cover

India 63/1   SCJ Broad 3-1-9-1

20.1

Broad to Mukund, no run, on a length and cramping the batsman for room as he defends

20.2

Broad to Mukund, no run, defended to cover with a solid crunch. Broad continues to keep it nice and full

20.3

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

20.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, nippy offcutter from Broad, and it nips through Dravid's attempted glance to strike him on the thigh

India 69/1   SCJ Broad 4-1-14-1

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

Broad to Mukund, no run, this one holds its line outside off, Mukund shoulders arms

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   SCJ Broad 5-2-14-1

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

24.5

Broad to Tendulkar, 4 byes, Aha, Broad was taken in by the gravity of the moment. Sends down five harmless byes well down the leg side.

24.6

Broad to Tendulkar, no run, short ball angling into the ribs, the little man stands tall and nudges ot down to the leg side.

India 81/2   SCJ Broad 6-2-15-2

26.1

Broad to Tendulkar, 2 runs, Sachin is away, nice languid check drive into the covers as Broad floats it full outside off. Eased into the gaps, and they get an easy two. Sachin refuses the third.

26.2

Broad to Tendulkar, no run, shortens the length outside off, Sachin gets across and shoulders arms to let it go through.

26.3

Broad to Tendulkar, no run, well bowled by Broad, he's settled into a nice rhythm here. This one angled in and straightened from middle and leg, to meet the broad SRT bat as he reached forward confidently.

26.4

Broad to Tendulkar, no run, you won't hear a louder 'Ooh' at Lord's! Sachin is beaten outside the off stump by a lively legcutter that jumps up and goes away from a length. Had to play at it, but even he wasn't good enough to edge it.

26.5

Broad to Tendulkar, 4 runs, drama! Broad is livid. Pietersen is livid with Broad! Sachin has four, thanks to an overthrow. Good length on off stump, he leans out and pats it to Pietersen at covers. KP runs in and flings it at the stumps, though SRT wasn't looking for a single. The throw is wild and runs away, past a diving attempt from Tremlett at fine leg. The occasion is getting to everybody!

26.6

Broad to Tendulkar, no run, back to mundane defence, Sachin is assured on the half forward push and defends to the off side.

India 91/2   SCJ Broad 7-2-21-2

28.1

Broad to Dravid, no run, wider outside off from Broad to Dravid, he lets it go.

28.2

Broad to Dravid, FOUR, trademark Sachin two balls ago, and now trademark Dravid. Over-pitched and swinging away, but Dravid is a master at moving into line and covering the deviation. The then opens the wrists even as he flows into the drive and the ball purrs through covers. India reach 100.

28.3

Broad to Dravid, no run, shorter length from Broad, Dravid stays back and works it to the leg side.

28.4

Broad to Dravid, no run, and he goes full this time, Dravid is a little late to come forward but manages to keep it out from the crease.

28.5

Broad to Dravid, no run, huge lbw appeal turned down by Umpire Bowden. Looked like it was going down the leg side, but that's a really good ball. Inswinging yorker that kept coming in as Dravid looked to play it into the leg side, it missed the bat and thudded into the foot. Surely heading down the leg side. The clouds are getting up to their tricks here.

28.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, short of a length outside off and going away from Dravid, who safely lets it go through.

India 100/2   SCJ Broad 8-2-25-2

43.1

Broad to Tendulkar, no run, full and floated wide of off stump and it shapes away. Sachin sees it closely and lets it go.

43.2

Broad to Tendulkar, no run, this time Sachin goes for it, leans out to the pitch and drives in wholesome style, but there is protection in the covers.

43.3

Broad to Tendulkar, no run, wide of off stump and angling further away, Sachin doesn't play at it this time.

43.4

Broad to Tendulkar, OUT, there's anguish at Lord's, even for the most ardent England fans, and they then begin to do their polite clapping routine. Sachin is out in the 30s again, at the home of cricket. Broad does it yet again with a fuller ball, one wonders why he even bothered with that bumper overdose. Lovely delivery, full and inviting outside off, swerving away slyly. Sachin walks into the trap, literally, driving away from the body and the edge flies low to the left of Swann crouching forward at second slip. Well taken. No 100th 100 yet. He made only 34, but boy, were they exquisite.

SR Tendulkar c Swann b Broad 34 (90m 58b 6x4 0x6) SR: 58.62

43.5

Broad to Laxman, no run, full again on off stump. Laxman as always reluctant to come forward, but he defends it into the off side.

43.6

Broad to Laxman, no run, over-pitched, looking for the edge, but Laxman middles the cover drive. The man close in parries it away to wide mid-off, so he's yet to open his account.

India 158/3   SCJ Broad 9-3-25-3

45.1

Broad to Laxman, 1 run, Strauss drops a sitter at first slip. Laxman escapes a duck. Superb bowling from Broad, gets the outswinger to go away from short of a length, Laxman fends from the crease. Strauss won't get any easier at catching practice. How did that go down? They get the single too.

45.2

Broad to Dravid, no run, full and on the pads, Dravid looks to work it to the leg side.

45.3

Broad to Dravid, no run, solid from Dravid, soaks up the pressure with a straight bat as Broad probes away full on off stump.

45.4

Broad to Dravid, no run, wider of off stump this time, Dravid plays it into the covers off the front foot.

45.5

Broad to Dravid, no run, this one nips in, Dravid again looks to defend, and it goes off the inner half to the leg side.

45.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, Dravid spilled in the slips now! For once, Broad can be excused if he throws a tantrum or ten! Another lovely ball, full and swinging away, Dravid is tentative with the forward prod and goes hard at it. Edges it to the right of Swann diving away at second slip, he gets both hands to it and lets it fall. Where is third slip?!

India 159/3   SCJ Broad 10-3-26-3

47.1

Broad to Laxman, no run, full again, full as usual I'm tempted to say, Laxman eases forward to defend his off stump

47.2

Broad to Laxman, no run, the top of off stump is where Broad's radar is fixed, what a relief that is for all England fans. Laxman is solid in defence

47.3

Broad to Laxman, no run, back of a length this time, the line remains good though. Laxman leans forward before standing up and steering to point

47.4

Broad to Laxman, no run, Broad goes full in search of swing, doesn't find it and Laxman digs it out

47.5

Broad to Laxman, no run, edged again but Laxman has adjusted his hands from Broad's last over. It runs along the ground to Swann, who take it cleanly, to his frustration

47.6

Broad to Laxman, no run, excellent, probing maiden over. Laxman solid but Broad asking all the right questions

India 164/3   SCJ Broad 11-4-26-3

49.1

Broad to Laxman, no run, Broad continues, it will be hard for Strauss to take him off,

49.2

Broad to Laxman, no run, careful defence from Laxman on the front foot

49.3

Broad to Laxman, no run, very full from Broad again, Laxman leans it gently to midwicket

49.4

Broad to Laxman, no run, after his early mishaps, Laxman seems to be lining it up well now. Straightest of blades sends this to mid-on

49.5

Broad to Laxman, 1 leg bye, Broad is lucky to get away with this. Leg-stump half-volley but Laxman couldn't connect

49.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, probing outswinger to end the over which Dravid happily waves through

India 169/3   SCJ Broad 12-5-26-3

51.1

Broad to Dravid, no run, this is the fifth over of Broad's spell. Starts outside off stump, too far to interest Dravid

51.2

Broad to Dravid, no run, again it's a touch too wide to draw Dravid into something injudicious

51.3

Broad to Dravid, no run, three in a row too wide and again Dravid lifts his bat above his head. More out of ritual than necessity

51.4

Broad to Dravid, no run, angled in and attacking the stumps this time. Dravid has to hurry his defence

51.5

Broad to Dravid, 1 run, outswinging half-volley is sweetly timed towards cover, needs a combined effort of Morgan diving to parry and Cook cleaning up, to do the fielding

51.6

Broad to Laxman, no run, cautious and careful defence to close out the over

India 170/3   SCJ Broad 13-5-27-3

53.1

Broad to Laxman, no run, swing for Broad, but not a great line

53.2

Broad to Laxman, no run, and again Broad is too far outside off stump to interest Laxman, or anyone else

53.3

Broad to Laxman, 1 bye, Prior does well to catch up with this, diving down the leg side

53.4

Broad to Dravid, 1 run, Pietersen out at deep point so Dravid can happily take a single steering in that direction

53.5

Broad to Laxman, no run, play and a miss! Loose shot, but they always look loose if you miss them. Full and inviting, swinging away and ghosting past the edge

53.6

Broad to Laxman, no run, Laxman follows the play-and-miss with a languid and stylish leave

India 178/3   SCJ Broad 14-5-28-3

63.1

Broad to Dhoni, 1 no ball, ah, and he starts with a no-ball, just over-stepping there

63.1

Broad to Dhoni, no run, well, this one burst off the pitch like a legcutter. Well wide of the batsman, however, and easily left

63.2

Broad to Dhoni, no run, fuller this time, and shaping away through the air. Dhoni steps across and raises his arms to leave

63.3

Broad to Dhoni, no run, another outswinger, another leave. Good work from Prior behind the stumps, the ball kept going after it passed the batsman and dipped too

63.4

Broad to Dhoni, no run, pushed down very wide of off, Dhoni isn't interested in any sort of shot

63.5

Broad to Dhoni, no run, variation from Broad, this looked like the offcutter. Dhoni tapped it to cover and set off for a single, only to be sent back late by Dravid. He's back safely

63.6

Broad to Dhoni, no run, ball hits pad, Broad belts out the double appeal - "aaah AAAH!" - but Asad Rauf says no. Well, that looks like a good decision. Going down leg

India 196/5   SCJ Broad 15-5-29-3

65.1

Broad to Dhoni, no run, Broad sticks to his line outside off, the ball curving gently away. Left alone

65.2

Broad to Dhoni, no run, more outswing, and Dhoni's patience holds as he leaves once more

65.3

Broad to Dhoni, no run, Broad is maintaining an immaculate seam position here, and finding consistent swing even with this old ball. Still, it's outside off and Dhoni doesn't need to play a shot

65.4

Broad to Dhoni, no run, very full on off stump, Dhoni digs it out into the leg side

65.5

Broad to Dhoni, no run, Broad targets off stump, Dhoni comes forward to defend on the walk

65.6

Broad to Dhoni, no run, tight line once more, would've hit the top of off had Dhoni's defensive bat not been firmly behind it

India 198/5   SCJ Broad 16-6-29-3

67.1

Broad to Dhoni, 1 run, the attempted surprise yorker from Broad, Dhoni manages to lay bat on it and the ball flies off the inside edge, down to fine leg

67.2

Broad to Dravid, no run, shaping away from the bat outside off, and Dravid patiently leaves alone

67.3

Broad to Dravid, 1 run, Broad comes wide on the crease and draws Dravid forward ... that wasn't quite there for the drive but he pushed at it. No major alarms as the ball trickles to cover point

67.4

Broad to Dhoni, no run, slammed down on a length outside off, left alone

67.5

Broad to Dhoni, no run, short of a good length from Broad, but he still finds significant movement off the pitch. Dhoni's bat was safely inside the line

67.6

Broad to Dhoni, 1 run, nurdled into space on the leg side, and they take a quick single

India 205/5   SCJ Broad 17-6-32-3

69.1

Broad to Dravid, 1 leg bye, Dravid is perhaps just beaten for pace as he shapes to glance to leg, the ball striking him on the pad. Going well down leg, however, and they take a leg bye

69.2

Broad to Dhoni, no run, dug in very short, the ball balloons harmlessly over Dhoni's shoulder as he ducks out of the way

69.3

Broad to Dhoni, no run, movement away from the right-hander through the air and off the pitch, but the line means it's easily left

69.4

Broad to Dhoni, 1 run, Dhoni's weight was back as Broad went full, but he still managed to get a good connection on the drive. It's intercepted at cover, but there's time for a quick single

69.5

Broad to Dravid, no run, Dravid almost falls over his front leg as he over-balances on a leg glance, but lays bat on ball

69.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, Broad aims a yorker at the base of off stump, but it's dug out by Dravid

India 213/5   SCJ Broad 18-6-33-3

88.1

Broad to Kumar, 1 run, follow on avoided, and fittingly it's Kumar who does it. He's been a great lark this innings and transformed the moment of danger with some almighty thwacking

88.2

Broad to Dravid, no run, "bowled Broady" says Prior and the slip cordon. It was, I suppose, but Dravid left easily

88.3

Broad to Dravid, no run, Dravid again leaves all alone outside off stump

88.4

Broad to Dravid, no run, some extra bounce from a length is defended calmly

88.5

Broad to Dravid, 1 run, Dravid gives Kumar one to face in the over by opening the face to send this to third man

88.6

Broad to Kumar, OUT, Broad ends the fun! Suspected he would. Sharp bouncer hurries on to Kumar who gets in no position to hook and top-edges high over his head where Strauss runs back to take the catch

P Kumar c Strauss b Broad 17 (26m 13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 130.76

India 276/8   SCJ Broad 19-6-35-4

90.1

Broad to Khan, no run, full delivery, shuffles across and defends

90.2

Broad to Khan, no run, the Broad that is full, the dangerous one, outside off stump, Zaheer manages not to get bat on it

90.3

Broad to Khan, no run, the other Broad, the one who likes that short length, right in to Zaheer who backs away and tries to hoick him in to oblivion but cannot get bat to ball

90.4

Broad to Khan, no run, even better, bangs it in and beats him with one that holds the line outside off stump

90.5

Broad to Khan, no run, Zaheer is making all sorts of furious movements about the crease trying to disrupt Broad's line, but he is having none of it, right on the stumps, and Zaheer has to keep it out with a block

90.6

Broad to Khan, no run, keep another one out, and survives the over with a push to short leg

India 283/8   SCJ Broad 20-7-35-4

92.1

Broad to Dravid, no run, brute of a short ball from Broad, climbing furiously on Dravid, whose concentration is top notch even now, drops the wrists and gets head out the way in a flash

92.2

Broad to Dravid, no run, touch wider and left alone outside the off stump

92.3

Broad to Dravid, no run, hangs beside the line and opens the face from the crease to run it down to third man, but refuses the single

92.4

Broad to Dravid, no run, Broad tries the fuller length, but Dravid gets well forward to keep him out

92.5

Broad to Dravid, no run, this is good stuff from Broad, another climber that has Dravid weaving out of harm's way, keeping him on the back foot

92.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, they will not get the single, with the field up on the off side, Broad slows it down full and just outside off, Dravid has to reach out but only manages to tap it away to extra cover, right who will have a go at Ishant?

India 284/9   SCJ Broad 21-8-35-4

94.1

Broad to Dravid, 2 runs, targets the pads with a very full length, Dravid accepts the gift and puts it past midwicket, Morgan keeps it down to two with a big dive

94.2

Broad to Dravid, no run, bit of trouble with the one that darts in with the angle but no harm done as he takes it on the pad

94.3

Broad to Dravid, no run, hops in the air to keep a short ball down towards square leg, does not take the single

94.4

Broad to Dravid, no run, Dravid tries to slog, and ends up looking a touch ugly, not his style, too much bottom hand, bat face closes and mid on fields

94.5

Broad to Dravid, no run, now he tries to will this fuller delivery past extra cover with a purring front foot drive but it has to get past the man there, and doesn't

94.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, Broad keeps Dravid pinned in the crease with a superb short delivery that Dravid hops to fend towards short leg
