England v India

England won by 319 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

25.1

Harbhajan Singh to Strauss, FOUR, poor start from the bowler, sending down a flat long-hop outside off that is carved to the backward point boundary

25.2

Harbhajan Singh to Strauss, no run, pitched up outside off, not much loop on this one either and it's left alone

25.3

Harbhajan Singh to Strauss, no run, a hint of width outside off, Strauss cuts again but this time the shot goes straight to the point fielder

25.4

Harbhajan Singh to Strauss, no run, flighted outside off, there's a hint of grip and spin for Bhajji but Strauss can safely leave alone

25.5

Harbhajan Singh to Strauss, no run, whipped across into the leg side, short leg takes one on the body and does well to field the rebound

25.6

Harbhajan Singh to Strauss, no run, and solid defence to end the over

England 68/2   Harbhajan Singh 1-0-4-0

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.

54.2

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, no run, I am rubbing my eyes in disbelief. Did I just see Bhajji bowl a doosra? probably not. It came in with an angle from over the wicket and seemed to straighten from middle. Swann defends.,

54.3

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, no run, similar ball, overspin on this one, Swan covers the line and defends.

54.4

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, no run, shorter and quicker outside off, gets Swann to cut, but cramps him for room. Play and a miss.

54.5

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, no run, tossed up generously this time, Swann gets to the flight and defends.

54.6

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, FOUR, what a sublime shot! Swann comes out of the crease, eases himself into position as Harbhajan tosses up, and launches it languidly between the bowler and mid-off. Lovely timing.

England 160/8   Harbhajan Singh 2-0-9-0

56.1

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, no run, Hilarious! The batsman attempts the switch-hit. The bowler bowls a doosra. In essence it is a legbreak to a left-handed batsman in the end, pitching outside off. Go explain that to Bradman and the others who played in a different era.

56.2

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, 1 run, this time Swann plays it more conventionally, chops a single away to point.

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.

56.4

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, no run, tossed up, Swann works it with the spin to the leg side.

56.5

Harbhajan Singh to Swann, 1 run, fires in the topspinner on middle and leg, Swann pokes it away to the leg side for another 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   Harbhajan Singh 3-0-16-0

66.1

Harbhajan Singh to Anderson, no run, tossed up a touch wide of off stump, Anderson drives loosely but well into the covers.

66.2

Harbhajan Singh to Anderson, no run, this one comes in, Anderson covers the line as he leans out and defends.

66.3

Harbhajan Singh to Anderson, no run, offspinner on middle and leg, Anderson covers the line and defends.

66.4

Harbhajan Singh to Anderson, no run, flighted by Harbhajan on middle stump and breaking away, Anderson handles it well.

66.5

Harbhajan Singh to Anderson, no run, this one straightens from off stump line, Anderson has no problems at all in defending it.

66.6

Harbhajan Singh to Anderson, 2 runs, short of a length to end the over, Anderson is reluctant to play at it, but gets it away wide of slip as he draws the bat back. Two more, Broad has strike for the next over.

England 210/9   Harbhajan Singh 4-0-18-0

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
