England won by an innings and 242 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

1.2

Broad to Dravid, no run, Broad attacks the top of off straight away, Dravid getting right behind it to defend

1.3

Broad to Dravid, no run, left on length by Dravid, the ball coming in at him off the pitch once more. There isn't all that much bounce in this track, brave leave

1.4

Broad to Dravid, no run, left once more, more safely this time as a length delivery swung away from him outside off

1.5

Broad to Dravid, no run, Broad goes up for an appeal as Dravid is struck on the pad, but that's very optimistic indeed. Going down leg, and he's got a massive inside edge on it too

1.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, seaming away outside off, and Dravid shoulders arms once more

India 8/1   R Dravid 0* (5b)

2.6

Anderson to Dravid, no run, Dravid defends on the walk, but his head is right over the ball as he keeps it out

India 17/1   R Dravid 0* (6b)

4.1

Anderson to Dravid, no run, hooping away from Dravid through the air, and he wisely opts to play no stroke

4.2

Anderson to Dravid, 1 run, that's the right line and length from Anderson. He pitches up to the bat on off stump, and is tapped down behind gully for one

India 24/1   R Dravid 1* (8b)

5.1

Broad to Dravid, FOUR, shot. Classical stuff from Dravid, leaning right over the ball and checking his drive between the bowler and mid-off. There was superb timing on the stroke, once it went past the mid-off fielder there was no stopping it

5.2

Broad to Dravid, no run, Broad pulls his length back a touch outside off, and Dravid responds with a well-judged leave

5.3

Broad to Dravid, no run, right up to the bat once more, and aimed at middle stump. Watchfully defended by Dravid

5.4

Broad to Dravid, FOUR, well, this is a spicy wicket but the runs are flowing. Very full once more, wider of off this time and so the drive is through cover rather than mid-off. Dravid threads the gap and Bopara is after it, but the ball wins the race

5.5

Broad to Dravid, no run, a little shorter, a little wider, and another good leave from Dravid

5.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, Broad probes at Dravid's defence with a full delivery, but he's solidly behind it

India 32/1   R Dravid 9* (14b 2x4)

6.6

Anderson to Dravid, 2 runs, shaping away from off stump, Dravid steps forward and taps the ball down behind square on the off side for two

India 35/1   R Dravid 11* (15b 2x4)

8.1

Anderson to Dravid, no run, shaping away, full and straight. Dravid defends, jabbing the ball down towards a diving Morgan at gully

8.2

Anderson to Dravid, no run, well, in the end I suppose he's left this. The ball left Dravid through the air, and initially he set himself to play a defensive shot. The movement took the ball past the edge as he pulled the bat inside the line

8.3

Anderson to Dravid, no run, this is a legitimate leave, Dravid getting across and shouldering arms

8.4

Anderson to Dravid, no run, and left alone once more, Anderson swinging the ball away outside off

8.5

Anderson to Dravid, 1 run, straighter from Anderson, Dravid taps to leg for a single

India 40/1   R Dravid 12* (20b 2x4)

9.1

Bresnan to Dravid, no run, he finds movement away from Dravid to start, the ball wide of off and left alone

9.2

Bresnan to Dravid, no run, that's close! This one came back in and struck Dravid on the pad as he over-balanced ... But umpire Steve Davis says no, and rightfully so as he's spotted the inside edge Dravid got on that

9.3

Bresnan to Dravid, no run, shaping away again, and left alone

9.4

Bresnan to Dravid, no run, Bresnan continues to probe away outside off, Dravid has a good look and leaves alone

9.5

Bresnan to Dravid, no run, beaten on the outside edge! This ball has jagged extravagantly off the seam, nipping away from a loose drive by the batsman

9.6

Bresnan to Dravid, no run, and hopping defence to end a good first over from Bresnan

India 40/1   R Dravid 12* (26b 2x4)

11.6

Bresnan to Dravid, no run, and solid defence to end the over

India 42/1   R Dravid 13* (31b 2x4)

12.4

Anderson to Dravid, no run, Dravid shifts his weight back and clips to the man at square leg

12.5

Anderson to Dravid, no run, the hands thrust away from the body as Dravid defends down towards gully. He almost had to stretch to play that

12.6

Anderson to Dravid, no run, swinging away outside off, and this time he does the right thing by leaving alone

India 43/1   R Dravid 13* (34b 2x4)

14.1

Broad to Dravid, no run, good start! Broad sends down a surprise yorker that is right on the mark, Dravid had to hurry to dig it out

14.2

Broad to Dravid, no run, pitched right up to the bat once more, dug out to cover

14.3

Broad to Dravid, no run, short of a good length this time, Dravid sways back to leave

14.4

Broad to Dravid, FOUR, a loose-limbed, languid drive sends the ball scorching through cover! Driven as only Dravid can, a pleasure to watch

14.5

Broad to Dravid, no run, a better length from Broad, and Dravid is very late in defence. The ball goes down behind square and is stopped by Anderson in the slips

14.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, past the outside edge! Superb attacking line from Broad, just outside off. Dravid had to play at it, but the swing took the ball past his outside edge

India 51/1   R Dravid 17* (40b 3x4)

16.3

16.5

16.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, well, that's a brave leave to end the over. The ball goes safely past him, but that wasn't too far away

17.4

17.6

Bresnan to Dravid, no run, again he's outside off, and this time Dravid raises his arms above his head in exaggerated fashion to leave

India 56/1   R Dravid 19* (47b 3x4)

18.2

Broad to Dravid, no run, that's a better length, fuller and aimed at off stump. Dravid defends from the crease

18.3

Broad to Dravid, no run, fired at the off stump, Dravid appears utterly solid in defence as he gets forward

18.4

Broad to Dravid, no run, full again, this one hit the seam and jagged away from Dravid, who had already set himself to leave on line

18.5

Broad to Dravid, 1 run, the wicket was much greener yesterday than it is today, but there's still some spite and malice in it as this one shoots off a length to strike a painful blow on Dravid's gloves. That looked like it hurt, but he seems ok

India 58/1   R Dravid 20* (51b 3x4)

19.1

Bresnan to Dravid, no run, fuller, straighter, and this time a forward defensive is the response

19.2

20.1

Broad to Dravid, no run, pitched up by Broad, Dravid defends late and right under the eyes

20.2

India 59/2   R Dravid 20* (60b 3x4)

23.4

Anderson to Dravid, 2 runs, nicely played by Dravid, who picks up the length early and punches forcefully through cover point off the back foot. He doesn't quite pick up four, but it's a top shot all the same

23.5

Anderson to Dravid, no run, Anderson aims much fuller, Dravid defends

23.6

Anderson to Dravid, no run, full wide, and nipping away from the batsman. Dravid steps right across and raises his arms into a graceful leave

26.1

Bresnan to Dravid, no run, full, aimed right at the off stump and Dravid is well forward in defence

26.2

Bresnan to Dravid, OUT, that's a nut! Dravid is undone by a cracking delivery from Bresnan, it landed on a perfect length and straightened off the pitch, zipping past the outside edge of his hopeful defence and making a mess of the stumps. It was already England's session, but this wicket has really tipped things in their favour. Bresnan has been as dependable as ever, and he's also got two wickets for good measure. India are in a deep hole now

R Dravid b Bresnan 22 (111m 68b 3x4 0x6) SR: 32.35

India 75/4   R Dravid 22 (68b 3x4)
