Sreesanth to Bresnan, no run, and he gets a full outswinger first up, defending it towards cover. bell wants the single, but is sent back

England 88/6   TT Bresnan 0* (1b)

Kumar to Bresnan, no run, accurate outswinger, starts middle and off, leaves him, Bresnan defends


Kumar to Bresnan, no run, the inswinger this time, and amazingly accurate. Bresnan is not surprised, and defends it down to mid-on

England 89/6   TT Bresnan 0* (3b)

Sharma to Bresnan, FOUR, shortish, nips in, gets big on him, but he clips it off his hips, and the fine leg is square. Hundred up for England


Sharma to Bresnan, no run, this is well outside off, and is left alone


Sharma to Bresnan, no run, jags back in again, but starts off too wide outside off, and Bresnan is comfortable in leaving it be


Sharma to Bresnan, no run, fuller now, drawing Bresnan into the drive, he gets the inside half of the bat on it, fielded by Sharma


Sharma to Bresnan, no run, bouncer now, and Bresnan is already forward, and has to pull out of the way fast


Sharma to Bresnan, no run, another beauty... back of a length, just outside off, Bresnan looks to get behind it, and then it leaves him, missing the edge by centimetres

England 102/6   TT Bresnan 4* (9b 1x4)

Sreesanth to Bresnan, no run, starts with an outswinger outside off, Bresnan lets it be


Sreesanth to Bresnan, no run, very well bowled, middle and off, length ball, moving away, Bresnan is semi-squared up in defence


Sreesanth to Bresnan, no run, even better, this pitches middle and leg, back of a length, and then moves away, with extra bounce. Bresnan has to drop the bottom hand to keep this down


Sreesanth to Bresnan, FOUR, too full this time, and this is good batting. They are taking every chance to score runs. Comes forward, drives this with an open face, and attacking fields mean full value for shots


Sreesanth to Bresnan, no run, and a superb comeback from Sreesanth. Short of a driving length again, just outside off, making him play, and then leaving him. Again no edge


Sreesanth to Bresnan, no run, this is wide enough for Bresnan to not be bothered about

England 112/6   TT Bresnan 8* (15b 2x4)

Sharma to Bresnan, no run, short ball, Bresnan covers the line of the ball, and defends it. He is a tall man

Sharma to Bresnan, no run, length ball, just outside off, holding its line a touch, Bresnan defends it solidly


Sharma to Bresnan, 1 run, full ball, gets a loose drive from Bresnan, but the inside edge goes past short leg for one

England 116/6   TT Bresnan 10* (19b 2x4)

Sreesanth to Bresnan, no run, soft hands from Bresnan, this is again a semi-beast of a delivery, bouncing from a length, and leaving him, Bresnan keeps it down. The ball bounces in front of the diving gully


Sreesanth to Bresnan, 1 run, fuller and closer, pushed wide of cover

England 117/6   TT Bresnan 11* (21b 2x4)

Sharma to Bresnan, no run, inswinger, headed for the top of off, except for Bresnan for intercept it and defend


Sharma to Bresnan, OUT, Dravid dropped a much easier one than this! First of all the ball is a peach again. Back of a length, angling in, pitching around off, then holding its line. Bresnan, who has shown a tendency to open up a bit, is squared up completely. A thin edge ensues, and Dravid has to dive low to his left, and takes it clean as a whistle. These are the catches you should be at the ground for. When they go smoothly into the palm, that sound of a clean slip catch is just beautiful
