Pataudi Trophy - 3rd Test

England v India

England won by an innings and 242 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

1.1

Broad to Sehwag, OUT, there's an appeal first ball! Broad slammed one down short of length and Sehwag leaned back, dropping his hands as the ball passed him ... or did it? It nipped back sharply off the seam, and may well have touched the glove. Prior went up straight away, as did the slip cordon. Strauss immediately asks for a review, he seems very sure. Yes, that's touched the glove! He's gone first ball! What a start for England

V Sehwag c †Prior b Broad 0 (6m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

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   SCJ Broad 1-1-0-1

3.1

Broad to Gambhir, no run, edged, short of Pietersen at third slip! Gambhir fended from the crease but did so with soft hands, the ball going down

3.2

Broad to Gambhir, no run, pushed quite wide across him this time, and Gambhir hops across to leave

3.3

Broad to Gambhir, no run, good, testing length from Broad, right up to the bat on off stump. Gambhir pushes towards mid-off

3.4

Broad to Gambhir, 2 runs, neatly done by the batsman, working a straight delivery into the leg side for a couple

3.5

Broad to Gambhir, FOUR, four more, and yet again it's behind square. Broad hit a length on leg stump and Gambhir shuffled across, getting something on it. The umpire reckons he's put bat to ball, that's given as runs

3.6

Broad to Gambhir, no run, squeezed to slip off a thick edge! The ball went straight to ground, soft hands once more

India 23/1   SCJ Broad 2-1-6-1

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   SCJ Broad 3-1-14-1

7.1

Broad to Gambhir, no run, landing on a length and leaving Gambhir off the pitch, he leaves well alone

7.2

Broad to Gambhir, no run, fuller this time, and straighter too. The ball hits the bat quite high as Gambhir defends behind square

7.3

Broad to Gambhir, no run, slanted out wider once more. The ball did swing back in, but the line was so wide that Gambhir didn't have to play

7.4

Broad to Gambhir, no run, England seem to have a clear plan to Gambhir, sticking outside off. But they're really not getting him playing very much, and now he leaves alone once again

7.5

Broad to Gambhir, no run, Broad switches to round the wicket, but lands the ball well wide of off stump and Gambhir offers no stroke

7.6

Broad to Gambhir, FOUR, there's bat on ball, and it's got him four! This is the first authoritative stroke that Gambhir has played in front of square, stepping forward to drive hard through cover

India 39/1   SCJ Broad 4-1-18-1

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   SCJ Broad 5-1-22-1

16.1

Broad to Gambhir, no run, good bounce and carry for Broad, but it's outside off and Gambhir raises his hands high to leave

16.2

Broad to Gambhir, 1 run, Gambhir hops and jabs behind square on the leg side, he wants the single straight away and Dravid eventually gets across too

16.3

Broad to Dravid, no run, defended into the leg side from the crease

16.4

Broad to Dravid, 2 runs, a quick two is taken as Dravid clips a straight one through the leg side

16.5

Broad to Dravid, no run, full and straight once more, dug out defensively to off

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

India 55/1   SCJ Broad 6-1-25-1

18.1

Broad to Gambhir, 1 run, slammed down short of length, again Gambhir hops and tucks to fine leg for one

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

18.6

Broad to Gambhir, no run, clipped off the hip towards square leg

India 58/1   SCJ Broad 7-1-27-1

20.1

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

20.2

Broad to Dravid, no run, fuller still, and it's driven to cover without much power or timing

20.3

Broad to Dravid, no run, swinging away outside off, and Dravid happily leaves alone

20.4

Broad to Dravid, no run, speared down the leg side, Dravid can't lay bat on the glance

20.5

Broad to Dravid, no run, on a length and leaving the bat, left alone once more

20.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, another outswinger, and another leave to end the over

India 59/2   SCJ Broad 8-2-27-1

22.1

Broad to Tendulkar, OUT, Tendulkar is out! Full, swinging away, Tendulkar pokes and edges straight to Anderson at third slip. That's taken the intensity up a notch! And not only on the field, there's all sorts of lively statements flying around the Cricinfo office right now. Sambit may be feeling a little outnumbered just at the minute ... That is quite a wicket for England, and a second significant scalp for the in-form Broad.

SR Tendulkar c Anderson b Broad 1 (10m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

22.2

Broad to Laxman, FOUR, well, he's off the mark with a four first ball but that's a little sketchy. His feet went nowhere and the bat just thrust out at a probing length ball, the inside edge going to fine leg

22.3

Broad to Laxman, no run, swinging away outside off this time, left alone

22.4

Broad to Laxman, no run, on a length, hitting the top of off. Defended to cover

22.5

Broad to Laxman, no run, full, shaping away once more. Left alone

22.6

Broad to Laxman, 1 run, full, Broad attacking the off stump. Dug out to cover

India 65/3   SCJ Broad 9-2-32-2

35.1

Broad to Dhoni, no run, full delivery, pushed to mid-off

35.2

Broad to Dhoni, no run, short of a length, extra bounce there, Dhoni pushes inside the line

35.3

Broad to Dhoni, no run, fuller, closer to off, Dhoni defends

35.4

Broad to Dhoni, no run, pitched right up, Dhoni looks for the drive, gets the inside half of the bat

35.5

Broad to Dhoni, no run, goes wide of the crease, Dhoni flicks a half-volley down the ground, but the mid-on is pretty straight

35.6

Broad to Dhoni, no run, shoulders arms to this short one outside off

India 100/6   SCJ Broad 10-3-32-2

37.1

Broad to Dhoni, no run, Dhoni takes one on the body. Looking to walk down to Broad, then sees this short one nipping back into him, and presents it his chest

37.2

Broad to Dhoni, no run, what a beauty to follow that up with, teasing length just outside off, leaves him upon pitching. Misses the edge, though

37.3

Broad to Dhoni, no run, shorter now, Dhoni stays inside the line and drops his wrist

37.4

Broad to Dhoni, 1 leg bye, and they steal a leg-bye here, this has hardly gone off the square, but Mishra is quick to call him through

37.5

Broad to Mishra, no run, short one, Mishra sways out of the line

37.6

Broad to Mishra, no run, another bouncer, doesn't even bounce much... Mishra manages to get under it, though

India 105/6   SCJ Broad 11-4-32-2

39.1

Broad to Dhoni, 1 run, the inswinger now, Dhoni - used to playing the outswinger - pushes tentatively at it, gets a thick inside edge for a single

39.2

Broad to Mishra, no run, left alone outside off

39.3

Broad to Mishra, OUT, another straight half-volley gets a wicket... this is another teasing full ball just outside off, Mishra drives tamely, inside the line as it turns out. The ball does nothing, goes straight, and takes the edge

A Mishra c †Prior b Broad 4 (21m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 30.76

39.4

Broad to Kumar, no run, Nearly another wicket... Kumar drives at the first ball he plays, uppishly, and it falls just short of mid-off

39.5

Broad to Kumar, no run, takes one on the body here, this is a short ball that doesn't quite rise. Lets it hit his arm. No show of pain

39.6

Broad to Kumar, 4 leg byes, that's clever batting - and frankly the only way at the moment for India to get runs. India get four runs because Kumar has not offered a shot here. Is hit in the arm, and the ball lobs over the keeper. What an outdated rule to allow leg-byes for such no-shots

India 115/7   SCJ Broad 12-4-33-3

41.1

Broad to Kumar, FOUR, Kumar swings now, and beneficially too, getting under a length ball and clearing mid-on with ease

41.2

Broad to Kumar, no run, yorker outside off, Kumar is deep in the crease, digs this one out

41.3

Broad to Kumar, 1 run, short, into the ribs, Kumar pushes this towards mid-on, and they rush through for a single

41.4

Broad to Dhoni, no run, left alone outside off

41.5

Broad to Dhoni, no run, good short delivery, not too short, and nips back in to cramp him. Dhoni awkwardly keeps it down

41.6

Broad to Dhoni, no run, short outside off, Dhoni doesn't need to play it, but he does, and manages to keep it down

India 128/7   SCJ Broad 13-4-38-3

43.1

Broad to Dhoni, no run, length ball outside off, Dhoni doesn't disturb it

43.2

Broad to Dhoni, no run, goes wide of the crease, bowls a low full toss, which Dhoni hits straight to mid-on

43.3

Broad to Dhoni, FOUR, a forehand up the line! Sees a half-tracker and goes after it. Even though it is too wide, he goes for it, and ends up hitting over extra cover. Maybe even straighter

43.4

Broad to Dhoni, no run, short, into the pads, Dhoni is late on it

43.5

Broad to Dhoni, FOUR, After tennis, Dhoni plays some pool! Another four... are England getting carried away with short-pitch bowling here? Another bouncer here. Dhoni pulls, the ball hits the cue end, and the ball goes in front of square for four

43.6

Broad to Dhoni, 1 run, shortish again, dropped into the leg side for one

India 139/7   SCJ Broad 14-4-47-3

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

57.3

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

57.5

Broad to Sharma, no run, ah, much better from Broad. Fuller, around off stump, forces Ishant to defend carefully

57.6

Broad to Sharma, no run, Ishant sees out the over with solid defence. He got squared up a touch I guess but it looked fairly comfortable

India 209/8   SCJ Broad 15-5-47-3

59.1

Broad to Dhoni, SIX, Broad shoves it short and Dhoni's response is emphatic! Smashes a hook shot away a long way into the stands over fine leg

59.2

Broad to Dhoni, no run, fuller now and Dhoni drives hard but doesn't bother with the single

59.3

Broad to Dhoni, no run, left all alone outside off stump

59.4

Broad to Dhoni, no run, good delivery from Broad, heading for the top of off stump before Dhoni defends solidly

59.5

Broad to Dhoni, 1 leg bye, thuds off Dhoni's thigh, trickles to deep square and leaves Broad just a single delivery to Ishant

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   SCJ Broad 16-5-53-3

61.1

Broad to Dhoni, no run, short of a length outside off stump. Dhoni easily enough into line to defend

61.2

Broad to Dhoni, OUT, gone now! Pitched-up delivery that Dhoni tried to hack to the cover boundary, in a way he was unlucky because the edge found the one slip in Strauss, who took a decent catch. That said, given the field was deep was there a need to go so hard at it? Anyway, it has been an excellent counter-attacking innings that has lifted his team's mood and total up towards respectability

MS Dhoni c Strauss b Broad 77 (119m 96b 10x4 3x6) SR: 80.20

61.3

Broad to Sreesanth, no run, excellent stuff from the new man. Boycott's the most straight-batted defence possible back to the bowler

61.4

Broad to Sreesanth, no run, short and shoved down the leg side. Sreesanth tucked out of the way

61.5

Broad to Sreesanth, no run, fuller this time and it found the pads. Heading a mile down leg but Broad appealed

61.6

Broad to Sreesanth, no run, banged down short to end the over, sending Prior tumbling to collect
