Bresnan to Dhoni, 1 run, good over from Bresnan as this full delivery only costs a single to long off

India 249/4   MS Dhoni 16* (21b 1x4)

46.1

Dernbach to Dhoni, no run, left alone outside off, that's fairly unusual for the 47th over of a one-day innings

46.2

Dernbach to Dhoni, 2 runs, low full toss is driven firmly down the ground and straight enough to mean long off can't stop the second

46.3

Dernbach to Dhoni, 1 run, a slower ball comes out very short but Dhoni doesn't latch on and it bobbles towards short fine-leg

46.5

Dernbach to Dhoni, no run, excellent yorker, Dhoni's inside edge goes straight to square leg and he has to scamper back quickly

46.6

India 254/4   MS Dhoni 20* (26b 1x4)

47.1

47.2

47.3

Bresnan to Dhoni, 2 runs, low full toss is swung hard down the ground and a poor throw means the two is completed

49.3

MS Dhoni c †Kieswetter b Bresnan 33 (41m 36b 2x4 0x6) SR: 91.66

India 272/6   MS Dhoni 33 (36b 2x4)
