Sharma to Cook, no run, Sharma is full outside off to start, and Cook leaves alone


Sharma to Cook, no run, straighter this time, and on a length. Cook defends


Sharma to Cook, no run, left alone once more outside off


Sharma to Cook, no run, Ishant seems to have located a full length early, and is already causing some problems. This one goes off a leading edge towards cover as Cook defends a touch awkwardly


Sharma to Cook, 1 run, tapped softly towards cover, but right in the gap and Cook is off the mark

England 2/0   AN Cook 1* (5b)

Kumar to Cook, 1 bye, Praveen hoops one back in to Cook, but the movement takes the ball down the leg side and though Dhoni dives to his right, he can't stop it cleanly

England 5/0   AN Cook 1* (6b)

Sharma to Cook, no run, speared harmlessly down the leg side


Sharma to Cook, no run, Ishant aims outside off this time, Cook leaves alone


Sharma to Cook, no run, ah, that's a probling line from Ishant, aiming at the top of off. Squirted defensively to gully


Sharma to Cook, no run, slightly straighter from Ishant, Cook hops and splays his legs to defend to mid-on


Sharma to Cook, no run, pushed down the leg side once more. Cook can't get a touch on the leg glance, but that wasn't too far from the leg stump


Sharma to Cook, 1 bye, but that was miles away! Hurled well down the leg side, Dhoni leaps to his right but can only palm the ball away

England 6/0   AN Cook 1* (12b)

Kumar to Cook, no run, huge appeal for lbw, and this looks very tight! Well, Asad Rauf is unmoved, but this looked close. Replays suggest it was borderline, umpire's call.


Kumar to Cook, 1 run, clipped off the hip, and down to fine leg

England 7/0   AN Cook 2* (14b)

Sharma to Cook, no run, cracking delivery! Ishant hits the perfect line to the left-hander, the ball seaming past the outside edge


Sharma to Cook, OUT, Cook is pinged on the pad once more, propping forward in defence. There's an appeal ... and it's given! This didn't look nearly as good a shout as the one in the last over, but Marais Erasmus thought about it and raised the finger. Well, replays suggest that while he was hit in line, that was probably going over the top. No DRS for lbw's though, and England have lost their first wicket

AN Cook lbw b Sharma 2 (24m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

England 7/1   AN Cook 2 (16b)
