Pataudi Trophy - 2nd Test

England v India

England won by 319 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

5.3

Sharma to Trott, no run, defence from Trott first up

5.4

Sharma to Trott, no run, on a length - perhaps just a touch short of a good length - and Trott defends to short leg, on the bounce

5.5

Sharma to Trott, no run, appeals fired at the umpire from all over the place as Ishant seams one sharply back in off the pitch to strike Trott on the front pad. Outside the line, though, and probably going over too. Erasmus is unmoved

5.6

Sharma to Trott, no run, very full outside off to end the over, Trott drives to mid-off

England 7/1   IJL Trott 0* (4b)

6.6

Kumar to Trott, no run, Praveen gets one to straighten on off stump, but Trott is back and across and right behind it in defence

England 8/1   IJL Trott 0* (5b)

7.4

Sharma to Trott, no run, Trott moves fluently forward into a drive, getting a good connection but finding Sreesanth at mid-off

7.5

Sharma to Trott, no run, this one comes in off the seam after pitching, but it starts wide of off and Trott can safely leave

7.6

Sharma to Trott, no run, great carry for Ishant, Dhoni taking the ball above shoulder height. The line is decent too, but not quite close enough to Trott to get him playing

England 9/1   IJL Trott 0* (8b)

9.1

Sharma to Trott, no run, pitched up on off stump, the ball rolls to mid-on off the inner half of the bat

9.2

Sharma to Trott, no run, Ishant pulls his length back outside off, Trott holds his bat behind is body and lets the ball sail past him

9.3

Sharma to Trott, no run, Ishant sticks to a line outside off, this one straightening off the pitch, and Trott leaves once more

9.4

Sharma to Trott, no run, and again, Ishant ploughs the channel outside off, Trott stubbornly leaves alone

9.5

Sharma to Trott, 1 wide, ah, that's a touch wild from Ishant, slamming down a bouncer acres outside off

9.5

Sharma to Trott, FOUR, shot. Trott came forward, then shifted his weight onto the back foot and cracked the cut behind point. A nicely balanced stroke

9.6

Sharma to Trott, no run, another loose delivery from Ishant, but this one has gone past the outside edge of Trott's bat as he aimed another cut

England 18/1   IJL Trott 4* (14b 1x4)

10.4

Sreesanth to Trott, OUT, edged, gone! Swinging away outside off, Trott comes forward to drive and nicks the ball straight to Laxman at second slip. That was just the line Sreesanth was bowling to Strauss, but it's perfect to the right-hander. That'll calm Sreesanth down, a great way for him to start after coming back into the side.

IJL Trott c Laxman b Sreesanth 4 (23m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 26.66

England 23/2   IJL Trott 4 (15b 1x4)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100
