Dernbach to Rahane, no run, ooh, Parthiv had to hurry back after running halfway down. Rahane forced it off the back foot to point, but it went straight to the fielder who had a shy and missed.


Dernbach to Rahane, FOUR, not a bad way to get your first runs for India! Rahane stands up, opens the wrists and hoists a back of length ball majestically over cover-point,. Solid wrist work there.


Dernbach to Rahane, 1 run, short of a length outside off, Rahane drops it into the covers for a single.


Dernbach to PA Patel, 1 run, 138 kph, but Parthiv seemed to have all the time he needed to work that off the pads round the corner to deep square leg.


Dernbach to Rahane, 1 run, they get there eventually. Rahane steers softly to the left of point, Parthiv was always coming and Rahane eventually responded by the time Morgan tumbled, collected and threw.


Dernbach to PA Patel, no run, smart little offcutter at 112 kph, Parthiv spots it, but the timing is a little awry as he whips straight to mid-on

India 14/0   JW Dernbach 1-0-7-0

Dernbach to Rahane, FOUR, The Indians have arrived. Four Tests late, but finally they might just be here. Rahane sets himself up, eyes a short ball from Dernbach and slams it mighty over midwicket.


Dernbach to Rahane, no run, a gem of a slower ball that, came out of the back of the hand, floated for an eternity in the air and landed full on middle and off. Rahane barely spotted it and played it to the leg side.


Dernbach to Rahane, 1 run, another slower one, Rahane picks it this time and works it to the leg side for one.


Dernbach to PA Patel, OUT, mistimed and gone. Parthiv holes out to another slower ball. It was landed on a length, and deviated away from Parthiv who looked to swipe it across through the straight field. It takes the top egde, spirals up into the air and comes down safely into mid-on's hands.

PA Patel c Broad b Dernbach 10 (19m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 83.33


Dernbach to Dravid, no run, short of a length outside off, Dravid taps into the off side from the crease.


Dernbach to Dravid, 1 run, whoa, Dravid gets his first T20 runs in ungainly fashion as Dernbach gets one to jump up viciously from a length. He gloves it away from the slip for a single.

India 40/1   JW Dernbach 2-0-13-1

Dernbach to Raina, 4 leg byes, what a poor ball. Angled down the leg side, Raina looks to pull and gets some pad on it and it runs away to fine leg. David Lloyd reckons India will win this easy, given the nature of the track.


Dernbach to Raina, 1 leg bye, speared into the pads, Raina misses one of those swings to the leg side and they get a leg bye to the leg side.


Dernbach to Dhoni, FOUR, brutal. Dhoni lines up a length ball angling into him and bottom-hands the life out of it. It nearly sails all the way over midwicket despite never taking off.


Dernbach to Dhoni, OUT, what an entertaining ball that was to watch! Dhoni is gone, and in dramatic style. He looked to bash this down the ground, got too violent for his own liking and lost the top hand grip on the bat and ended up slicing it one-handed high towards long-on. The debutant Hales was there, he nearly fluffed it as he tried to take it with the fingers pointing up, it popped up and landed on his shoulder, allowing him to grab it before it landed. He eventually exHales in relief.

MS Dhoni c Hales b Dernbach 8 (15m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00


Dernbach to Ashwin, FOUR, and he's away with four. Fast and short outside off, Ashwin just waits for it to pass him and angles it along to third man.


Dernbach to Ashwin, OUT, Ashwin came, Ashwin went. He dabbed a length ball into the off side, loped out of the crease pointlessly and took for ever to turn back. Dernbach ran through to under-arm the ball onto the stumps.

R Ashwin run out 4 (1m 2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

India 162/7   JW Dernbach 3-0-21-2

Dernbach to Vinay Kumar, 1 run, short of a length to VK, who forces a single down to long on. Over to Praveen Kamikaze Kumar.


Dernbach to Kumar, no run, swing and a miss. That was back of a length well outside off, PK swings hard but he is too far away from the ball as he has backed away, and misses.


Dernbach to Kumar, OUT, classy deception! What a pleasing slower ball that was! It was bowled, it spent some time traversing the 22 yards, time in which Praveen set himself up for a straight drive, played it, missed, and thought about attempting another shot. Too late, the ball came through and tapped off stump. Easy peasy.

P Kumar b Dernbach 1 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00


Dernbach to MM Patel, OUT, and Munaf doesn't try to make the most of the chance. India are bowled out in this format too. Short and wide outside off, he swings at it without much intent and nicks through to the keeper.

MM Patel c †Kieswetter b Dernbach 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 165/10   JW Dernbach 3.4-0-22-4
