England won by 6 wickets (with 3 balls remaining)
31 August 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Patel to Dravid, SIX, Dravid's hit one of the mightiest sixes he has ever hit! That was in the slot, he has had a few sighters and he just bangs it miles over midwicket.

India 89/1   R Dravid 19* (17b 1x6)   SR Patel 2.4-0-22-0

Patel to Dravid, SIX, the timing is coming back! Dravid trots out this time and exquisitely launches Samit over long-on for six more.

India 95/1   R Dravid 25* (18b 2x6)   SR Patel 2.5-0-28-0

Patel to Dravid, SIX, Dravid's hit three consecutive sixes. I am pinching myself hard. Ouch. I am not dreaming. Bosh! Another flat nothign ball from Russel Peters, and he sure is getting hurt a real bad here. Slg-swept into the crowd behind midwicket again.

India 101/1   R Dravid 31* (19b 3x6)   SR Patel 3-0-34-0

Broad to Raina, SIX, what's that? I can't play the bouncer? Take that. You can almost hear Raina muttering those words as he launches a short ball from Broad miles over the deep square leg boundary. Stunning timing on that.

India 123/5   SK Raina 13* (5b 1x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 3.1-0-31-2

Bresnan to Raina, SIX, Give him the blue jersey (or the yellow one) and Raina becomes Superman. Doesn't quite like it when he's in whites. Length ball, in the region, Raina just whacks the leather off it. Tremendous cross-batted clobbering.

India 140/5   SK Raina 26* (14b 2x4 2x6)   TT Bresnan 2.3-0-22-0

Bresnan to Raina, SIX, even bigger. Visceral. Slower ball on middle and leg, full and in the slot, Raina bombards it over wide long-on. Boy, he's connecting these.

India 146/5   SK Raina 32* (15b 2x4 3x6)   TT Bresnan 2.4-0-28-0
