England 124/7   SCJ Broad 6* (9b 1x4)

51.1

Sreesanth to Broad, no run, he starts with a very full fall, curving in the air and hurtling towards middle and off. Broad is behind it as he defends.

51.2

Sreesanth to Broad, 2 runs, Broad's away after the break, short ball that nips back in sharply and he fends it off the back foot towards square leg for a couple.

51.3

Sreesanth to Broad, no run, again he gets one to cut in from back of a length, Broad crouches on the back foot and stabs it back down the track.

51.4

Sreesanth to Broad, 1 run, too straight, on Broad's pads and he clips it square for a single. The cordon moves to the other side as Swann faces up ... Three slips and gully.

England 127/8   SCJ Broad 9* (13b 1x4)

52.3

Sharma to Broad, 2 runs, he goes round the wicket to the left-hander, but makes the same mistake. On Broad's pads, he hangs back and tucks it to midwicket for a couple more.

52.4

Sharma to Broad, 1 run, not so convincing this time. Fuller length, and much better line from Ishant. Full and outside off, Broad goes for an airy drive and gets an inside edge through square leg.

England 136/8   SCJ Broad 12* (15b 1x4)

53.1

Sreesanth to Broad, FOUR, this is refreshing from England, the crowd loves it and India are playing into England's hands. Another short ball, it was coming into Broad, which helped him swivel and swing it high over square leg. Yuvraj at deep midwicket moved to his left, but the ball fell safely, just inside the ropes.

53.2

Sreesanth to Broad, 4 leg byes, India are leaking runs here. Sreesanth gets the idea right about the length, goes full and swings it in, but loses the line completely. It lands on leg, and keeps going further down. Broad gets some pad on it and it runs away fine.

53.3

Sreesanth to Broad, FOUR, Broad has turned on his T20 mode here. That was meaty. Not a bad ball this time, it was short of a length and straightening from off, Broad reached out, was well away from the pitch, but just threw his muscles at it. Launched on the up over a vacant mid-on. 150 up.

53.4

Sreesanth to Broad, 1 run, short of a length outside off, Braod scythes the cut without much timing, Ishant at deep point fields it but the crowd roars!

53.6

Sreesanth to Broad, 1 run, another pull with murderous intent! The field is scattered though, and it goes straight to Yuvraj this time for a single. This is a lot of spirit from Broad and Swann.

England 155/8   SCJ Broad 22* (20b 3x4)

54.1

Harbhajan Singh to Broad, 1 run, angled in from wide of the crease, Broad easily laps it over to fine leg for a single.

England 156/8   SCJ Broad 23* (21b 3x4)

55.1

Sreesanth to Broad, no run, there, another bouncer. How many wickets have bouncers got him today? Zero. Broad tries to pull and misses.

55.2

Sreesanth to Broad, 1 run, high full toss. Wasim Akram on air says it was an attempted yorker. With Sree you never know. Broad pushes it from the crease to mid-on.

55.5

Sreesanth to Broad, 2 runs, this is getting predictable now, Broad saw that bouncer coming even as Sree ran in. Another controlled pull to the deep.

55.6

Sreesanth to Broad, no run, pitches it up this time, but well wide of off stump. Broad has a leaden-footed flail at it, but can't connect.

England 166/8   SCJ Broad 26* (25b 3x4)

56.3

Harbhajan Singh to Broad, 1 run, mishit in the air, but this is England's session, so the ball lands in the middle of nowhere as three men converge. He's trying to hit everything, this one he doesn't connect and just scoops it in the air. Safe for a single.

56.6

Harbhajan Singh to Broad, FOUR, huge! This time Broad gets it off the meat and sends it whistling into the recesses at deep midwicket. Top shot, India have protection at wide long-on, but he got it to his left for another four. Partnership 49!

England 173/8   SCJ Broad 31* (27b 4x4)

57.3

Kumar to Broad, no run, shortens the length on off stump and it holds its line, Braod works it back down the track.

57.4

Kumar to Broad, FOUR, another exquisite shot from Broad! PK gets this one to snake away subtly from short of a length, and it made room for Broad to cut as it went away. He latched onto it with a fierce little cut and the ball scoots through backward point.

57.5

Kumar to Broad, 2 runs, in the air, but safe again! Braod splices a swipe off a length ball and the mishit keeps Mukund at mid-on interested as he runs back and leaps ... but the ball evades his outstretched hand.

57.6

Kumar to Broad, 1 run, short of a length to end the over and nipping away, Broad coaxes it into the covers for a single as England continue to motor towards 200.

England 181/8   SCJ Broad 38* (31b 5x4)

58.1

Sharma to Broad, 1 run, another poor ball, short of a length and sitting up for Broad's coil and slap. He whacks it in front of square, and Raina does well to dive away and slow it down in the covers.

58.3

Sharma to Broad, FOUR, Broad is doing a superb impersonation of Vettori here! Tall, left-hand batsman, wearing full sleeves and playing some rousing innovative shots. Ishant pitches one up, Broad spots it, gets under it and lofts the drive over wide mid-off for four more.

58.4

Sharma to Broad, no run, this one was shorter, Broad hung back and looked to poke it away into the off side.

58.5

Sharma to Broad, no run, beaten! Been a while since that happened. Short of a length, and it kicks up like a monster. Broad missed as he looked to turn it away, and Dhoni can't collect it cleanly either.

58.6

Sharma to Broad, no run, pitched up, Broad hangs in the crease, but still manages to time the straight drive well. Ishant stops it on his follow through.

England 187/8   SCJ Broad 43* (36b 6x4)

59.3

Kumar to Broad, 1 run, back of a length and moving away in the air, Broad is behind the line nicely and plays it into the covers for a single.

England 189/8   SCJ Broad 44* (37b 6x4)

60.1

Sharma to Broad, no run, Ishant angles one across Broad who has a mighty heave at it. Doesn't connect this time.

60.2

Sharma to Broad, 1 leg bye, pitched up, but outside leg stump and Broad gets some pad on it. It dribbles away to the leg side, and there is no one to cut the single off.

60.4

Sharma to Broad, 1 run, this is the epitome of rubbish bowling. Full and outside leg again. Is he trying to bowl him round the legs? Broad misses the whip, runs off the pad through midwicket.

60.6

Sharma to Broad, no run, another hopelessly short bouncer, this time with the intention of keeping Broad away from strike. He pulls, but misses.

England 195/8   SCJ Broad 45* (41b 6x4)

61.2

Kumar to Broad, no run, the banana swinger still exists, it curves in like a boomerang from well outside leg and finishes on off. Broad does well to defend.

61.3

Kumar to Broad, no run, back of a lenght, Broad looks to pull without room, and misses.

61.4

Kumar to Broad, 1 run, full and angling across, this time Broad drives it through mid-off for a single.

England 197/8   SCJ Broad 46* (44b 6x4)

62.1

Sharma to Broad, 1 run, Broad lashes a drive into the covers. India get a chance to bowl at No. 11. Mr Anderson.

62.6

Sharma to Broad, no run, sharp bouncer just outside off, but that doesn't stop Broad from trying to slice it in the air. He can't make contact though.

England 199/9   SCJ Broad 47* (46b 6x4)

64.1

Sharma to Broad, 1 run, Ladies and gentlemen, stand as one and put your hands for Stuart Broad. He's taken England to 200 with one of the more entertaining counterattacks you will see. Short of a length ball, he gets under it and flat bats it to long off. Single taken. Well played. The crowd roars!

64.3

Sharma to Broad, no run, pitched up, very wide of off stump, Broad chases it but doesn't connect.

64.4

Sharma to Broad, no run, another big swing as Ishant angles one across from leg to off. Play and a miss from Broad, he's looking for boundaries. Might look for the single now.

64.5

Sharma to Broad, 1 run, he stabs a length ball this time, onto the pad and away into the off side for a single.

England 202/9   SCJ Broad 49* (50b 6x4)

65.1

Kumar to Broad, no run, short and outside off, Broad looks for another cut and misses.

65.2

Kumar to Broad, no run, short of a length from PK, he's the one man who's maintained his sanity through the carnage. Length ball on off, shaping away, Broad defends.

65.3

Kumar to Broad, no run, another short of a length ball on the off stump, Broad plays it into the off side.

65.4

Kumar to Broad, no run, back of a length this time, on middle and leg, Broad is handling him carefully here.

65.5

Kumar to Broad, no run, again that huge away movement, Broad covers the line and eases it into the covers.

65.6

Kumar to Broad, FOUR, respect for the bowler for the first 5 balls of the over, and he finishes off with a maul. An absolute maul. Length ball, hinting at the threat of away swing. Broad isn't scared, he just pumps it back over the bowler's head. What a spirited 50 this has been!

England 208/9   SCJ Broad 53* (56b 7x4)

67.1

Sreesanth to Broad, 2 runs, short of a length, on the pads, Broad pushes it into the vast expanses of nothingness at midwicket. Two more. India losing the plot.

67.2

Sreesanth to Broad, FOUR, Broad keeps adding to India's pain here! Another authoritative shot, Sreesanth won't like it. Full length, looking to swing in and Broad launches it over mid-off. Clean and smooth.

67.3

Sreesanth to Broad, no run, shortens the length this time, Broad looks to press forward but is forced to stab it from the crease.

67.4

Sreesanth to Broad, no run, that's something Sreesanth hasn't done a lot today: the one that goes away from the left-hander. Broad had no chance of getting bat on it as he got squared up. Groans in the slips as he misses.

67.5

Sreesanth to Broad, no run, pitched up, looking to hit the pads, but Broad is good enough to play it back to the bowler.

67.6

Sreesanth to Broad, 1 run, and he gets a single, pushing a length ball down to long-off. Shoddy from India and Dhoni. It is drinks now at long last. What a session for England. Might prove to be the most decisive of the match.

England 217/9   SCJ Broad 60* (62b 8x4)

68.1

Harbhajan Singh to Broad, no run, offbreak straightens from middle and off, Broad defends solidly.

68.2

Harbhajan Singh to Broad, no run, angles this one away towards the point area.

68.3

Harbhajan Singh to Broad, FOUR, Broad makes a mockery of Harbhajan's skills. Lovely inside-out lofted cover drive, ensuring it is wide of the man at long-off. Top shot.

68.4

Harbhajan Singh to Broad, OUT, and the innings ends. Broad finds a fielder at long last, but only just. Harbhajan doubles his tally of wickets for the series. Flighted in the zone, Broad backs himself to clear Tendulkar at deep midwicket and goes for the slog-hoick. He makes good connection, but not good enough. Tendulkar takes it.

SCJ Broad c Tendulkar b Harbhajan Singh 64 (93m 66b 9x4 0x6) SR: 96.96
