11.1

13.2

13.3

13.4

England 27/2   KP Pietersen 4* (12b)
14.1

Sreesanth to Pietersen, 1 run, KP is looking to lay bat on ball wherever possible, tapping a full delivery just to the left of cover for a quick single

14.3

Sreesanth to Pietersen, FOUR, slammed to wide mid-on! Sreesanth tried the bouncer but it was powerfully dispatched by Pietersen, who pulled off the front foot to send the ball flying towards the boundary

14.4

Sreesanth to Pietersen, FOUR, and again! If anything, this one was hit even harder, Pietersen swivelling on his back leg to send the ball screaming to the midwicket boundary. This isn't really a pitch to bowl bouncers on, and Sreesanth doesn't quite have the pace either

14.5

Sreesanth to Pietersen, no run, pushed down the leg side, Pietersen can't get a touch on the glance

England 37/2   KP Pietersen 13* (17b 2x4)
15.5

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, spicy delivery! Great wrist position from Praveen, superb control of the seam. This one appeared to move away through the air, but nipped back in after pitching to strike Pietersen a stinging blow on the upper thigh

15.6

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, good, tight finish to the over, Pietersen coming forward to defend a length delivery

England 40/2   KP Pietersen 13* (19b 2x4)
17.1

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, swinging away outside off, left alone

17.2

Kumar to Pietersen, FOUR, clipped firmly to midwicket, Praveen slipping towards leg stump and Pietersen leaning into a well-timed shot

17.3

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, this has got to be close! Pietersen strides forward and is hit on the pad ... that looked really adjacent, but Marais Erasmus says no. Well, Pietersen was a long way down the pitch but that was mighty close. Praveen looks hard done by, and you do feel for him, that was a great delivery

17.4

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, a slow outswinger, outside off, and it's left alone

17.5

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, fuller this time, tapped defensively to cover

17.6

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, and another leave to end the over

England 48/2   KP Pietersen 17* (25b 3x4)
19.1

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, edgy leave from Pietersen! He was forward and only opted not to play a shot at the very last moment, the ball touching the toe of the bat and bouncing towards the slips

19.2

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, straighter, Pietersen drives back to the bowler

19.3

Kumar to Pietersen, FOUR, well, it's four runs for the batsman but this wasn't an entirely convincing stroke. Pietersen leaned across to off and had a drive, the ball going through gully and down to third man for four

19.4

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, Praveen bent his back on this one, but it's outside off and left alone

19.5

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, another outswinger, another leave

19.6

Kumar to Pietersen, 1 run, the variation from Praveen, this one coming in through the air and further off the pitch, but it's dealt with easily enough by Pietersen this time

England 55/2   KP Pietersen 22* (31b 4x4)
20.1

Sharma to Pietersen, no run, just short of a good length but nice and straight from Ishant, and Pietersen defends

20.2

Sharma to Pietersen, 1 run, close to short leg! Pietersen had walked right across to off and tried to glance to square leg, but the ball seamed and bounced more than he was expecting, taking an inside edge and bouncing off the hip ... just past the fielder

England 56/2   KP Pietersen 23* (33b 4x4)
21.1

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, pitched up by Praveen Kumar, swinging away outside off. Pietersen resists his attacking instincts, leaving alone

21.2

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, full again, drilled hard towards mid-on, where Tendulkar leapt and dived to his left to cut the shot off

21.3

Kumar to Pietersen, 1 leg bye, Pietersen walked right across to off to change the line of the delivery, turning it down to fine leg for one

England 57/2   KP Pietersen 23* (36b 4x4)
22.1

Sharma to Pietersen, no run, ouch! This one leapt off the seam and struck a painful blow amidships. Well, Mukund - at short leg - has said something to him after that, and got a cold stare for his efforts. From about three inches away.

22.2

Sharma to Pietersen, 1 run, tapped just wide of mid-on, and they take a quick single

22.5

Sharma to Pietersen, no run, tapped to extra cover, a loud "no!" from Pietersen sends Strauss scurrying back to his crease

22.6

Sharma to Pietersen, no run, Pietersen shuffles across to off and is struck on the pad ... there's an appeal, but that was going well over. Pietersen had moved right across, exposing both the middle and leg stumps

England 60/2   KP Pietersen 24* (40b 4x4)
24.1

Sharma to Pietersen, no run, great delivery! Ishant beats the edge of KP's bat with one that straightened off the pitch. Close, but not quite

24.2

Sharma to Pietersen, no run, another probing delivery outside off, this time Pietersen leaves alone

24.3

Sharma to Pietersen, 1 run, sharp movement off the seam for Ishant as Pietersen again shuffled right across to the off side. He lays bat on ball, however, and picks up a single. Quick delivery too, nudging 90mph

24.6

Sharma to Pietersen, 2 leg byes, ah, what's happened here? Another fantastic delivery from Ishant, seaming it very sharply back in. The ball hits something and flies through to Dhoni, who shells it ... and replays suggest that hit the hip, not the inside edge. Still, not the greatest take by the keeper

England 64/2   KP Pietersen 25* (44b 4x4)
26.1

Yuvraj Singh to Pietersen, no run, he comes round the wicket to the right-hander, who steps back and punches to cover. There's a fumble, but not bad enough to allow a single

26.2

Yuvraj Singh to Pietersen, no run, Yuvraj slings one down with a very low arm, Pietersen coming forward to defend

26.3

Yuvraj Singh to Pietersen, no run, Pietersen was waiting in position to play the forward defensive practically even before this one was bowled

26.4

Yuvraj Singh to Pietersen, no run, fidgety defence back down the track

26.5

Yuvraj Singh to Pietersen, 1 run, tapped out to deep cover for one

England 69/2   KP Pietersen 26* (49b 4x4)
27.1

Sreesanth to Pietersen, 2 runs, shortish, widish, KP makes a late decision to bat it through the vacant gully for an easy couple

27.2

Sreesanth to Pietersen, no run, bowling from very close to the stumps, slightly outside off, swinging away, left alone

27.3

Sreesanth to Pietersen, 1 run, slightly shorter, pushed wide of cover for a single

27.5

Sreesanth to Pietersen, OUT, How huge is that wicket? Outswinger, just short of a length, outside off, not a ball that KP had to play at, but he did. Fatally. Tried to withdraw late, but by then the edge had been taken, through to Raina at third slip

KP Pietersen c Raina b Sreesanth 29 (76m 53b 4x4 0x6) SR: 54.71

England 73/3   KP Pietersen 29 (53b 4x4)
