1.4

1.5

4.6

Anderson to PA Patel, 1 run, flicked to midwicket

India 15/0   PA Patel 7* (16b 1x4)

5.1

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, a strangled appeal from Bresnan as this one nips back to strike a combination of pad and glove, as Parthiv props a long way forward

5.2

Bresnan to PA Patel, 1 run, dropped! Poor Ben Stokes' first significant touch of the ball in international cricket is a low spill at backward point. Whoops. That hit the heel of his hands, and never looked like sticking

10.5

India 48/0   PA Patel 23* (37b 3x4)

12.1

Anderson to PA Patel, no run, round the wicket again, tight line demands a compact stroke

12.2

12.4

Anderson to PA Patel, FOUR, same region, same result! England are leaking a lot of runs behind square today. Parthiv just opened the face on that one

12.5

Dernbach to PA Patel, FOUR, short, and sweetly pulled! Dernbach's short ball was instantly picked, and leathered through square leg!

14.6

Dernbach to PA Patel, no run, blocked out to short midwicket. An expensive introduction to the match for Dernbach

India 78/0   PA Patel 36* (49b 6x4)

15.3

Broad to PA Patel, no run, down the leg side but he gets away with the wide call...pretty tight, a tad lucky I think

15.4

Broad to PA Patel, 2 runs, short again, this pull doesn't come out of the middle but a fumble at deep square-leg means they make a second

15.5

Broad to PA Patel, 1 run, ooh...Parthiv was struggling with that run, he jabbed a very full delivery towards cover and if Anderson had managed to field cleanly it was a clear run out chance
