India tour of England, Only T20I: England v India at Manchester, Aug 31, 2011
England won by 6 wickets (with 3 balls remaining)
31 August 2011 - night match (20-over match)

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

India 39/1   AM Rahane 27* (16b 5x4)   JW Dernbach 1.4-0-12-1

Bopara to Dravid, OUT, Dravid's T20 batting career began scratchily, slowly got better, climaxed in three stunning sixes, and ends with a catch at cover. Full and there for the butchering, Dravid hits it really well but straight to cover.

R Dravid c Morgan b Bopara 31 (23m 21b 0x4 3x6) SR: 147.61

India 104/2   AM Rahane 61* (37b 8x4)   RS Bopara 0.4-0-3-1

Broad to Rahane, OUT, one debutant goes, and the other follows. Rahane's little fairytale is over. It wasn't really short, as Rahane backed away to the leg side and looked to create room to boom it over the covers. He was still cramped and ended up upper cutting it into third man's hands. Well played young man!

AM Rahane c Dernbach b Broad 61 (49m 39b 8x4 0x6) SR: 156.41

India 106/3   V Kohli 2* (3b)   SCJ Broad 2.3-0-21-1

Broad to Kohli, OUT, India going through a mini-collapse here, Kohli is gone. Short and wide outside off, perhaps too wide outside off for the pull and he ends up nicking it through to the keeper. It hit really low down the bat too.

V Kohli c †Kieswetter b Broad 4 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

India 108/4   RG Sharma 0* (0b)   SCJ Broad 2.5-0-23-2

Swann to Sharma, OUT, boy, did Rohit look lazy there? He dawdles past an offbreak that goes through the bat pad gap, Kieswetter is dozing away as well and doesn't collect it, but he has enough time to make amends as Rohit turns back slowly. India digging the kind of hole they found themselves in several times in the Tests.

RG Sharma st †Kieswetter b Swann 1 (7m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

India 117/5   SK Raina 7* (4b 1x4)   GP Swann 3-0-25-1

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

India 158/6   SK Raina 33* (18b 2x4 3x6)   JW Dernbach 2.4-0-17-2

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   SK Raina 33* (18b 2x4 3x6)   JW Dernbach 3-0-21-2

Bresnan to Raina, OUT, Another mini-collapse for India. Raina is gone now, and they are eight down. He's played a superb hand though. It was a back of length ball angling across Raina, who tried to launch it over the leg side, but ended up slicing it off the outside edge into the covers.

SK Raina c Broad b Bresnan 33 (26m 19b 2x4 3x6) SR: 173.68

India 162/8   P Kumar 0* (0b)   TT Bresnan 3.1-0-31-1

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

India 165/9   R Vinay Kumar 2* (4b)   JW Dernbach 3.3-0-22-3

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   R Vinay Kumar 2* (4b)   JW Dernbach 3.4-0-22-4
