57.1

Broad to Sharma, no run, slammed down short, Ishant looks fairly comfortable as he dobs it onto the leg side

57.2

Broad to Sharma, no run, that's very easy for Ishant. His whole game is set for short bowling and this half-tracker was patted back quietly to Broad

Broad to Sharma, no run, shall he play at this wide one, no Ishant

57.4

Broad to Sharma, no run, again Ishant is happy to flag it through to Prior

India 209/8   I Sharma 4* (15b 1x4)
59.6

Broad to Sharma, no run, Ishant is solid in defence. Dhoni working this well and England seem rather frustrated. A lot of short balls being slapped down at the moment

India 223/8   I Sharma 4* (16b 1x4)
60.6

Anderson to Sharma, no run, Ishant easily pats a shortish delivery to point. He's doing his job very well

India 224/8   I Sharma 4* (17b 1x4)
62.1

Anderson to Sharma, no run, Ishant is always the same. Shuffling across his stumps, getting very square on and defending

62.2

Anderson to Sharma, OUT, wow, that's a ridiculous catch from Cook! Nobody can believe it. He's at silly point and Ishant drove straight at him, somehow the ball lodged in his arm-pit and he ended up hugging the ball to take the catch

I Sharma c Cook b Anderson 4 (37m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 21.05

India 224/10   I Sharma 4 (19b 1x4)
