4.5

Anderson to PA Patel, FOUR, driven hard down the ground, and there's India's first boundary. A much more compact stroke from Parthiv and he reaps his rewards

India 14/0   PA Patel 6* (15b 1x4)   JM Anderson 2.5-0-9-0

5.5

Bresnan to Rahane, FOUR, short, and slotted through midwicket with a swivel-pull. Nicely done

India 20/0   AM Rahane 10* (17b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 2.5-0-10-0

7.5

Bresnan to Rahane, FOUR, well played, a cramped pull off a decent length, gets it very fine and beats fine leg

India 32/0   AM Rahane 17* (21b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 3.5-0-18-0

9.4

Broad to Rahane, FOUR, that's a fine riposte from Rahane! Going full again, but the batsman is equal to it, and swings clean through the line for a straight boundary

India 38/0   AM Rahane 21* (26b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 0.4-0-5-0

9.6

Broad to PA Patel, FOUR, pulled, emphatically, through square leg! Quickly onto the short ball and puts it away well. That's the end of the Powerplay, and India are going okay...

India 43/0   PA Patel 19* (33b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 1-0-10-0

10.6

Anderson to PA Patel, FOUR, short and misdirected, and helped round the corner. Fine leg can't cut that off, and India march on

India 48/0   PA Patel 23* (37b 3x4)   JM Anderson 6-0-20-0

11.1

India 52/0   AM Rahane 27* (30b 4x4)   SCJ Broad 1.1-0-14-0

11.4

Broad to Rahane, FOUR, up and over, and belted through extra cover. This is a fine acceleration

India 56/0   AM Rahane 31* (33b 5x4)   SCJ Broad 1.4-0-18-0

12.3

Anderson to PA Patel, FOUR, very cunning stuff from Parthiv! A short ball, and he sways out of line to ramp the ball up and over the slips

India 62/0   PA Patel 27* (40b 4x4)   JM Anderson 6.3-0-24-0

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

14.2

Dernbach to Rahane, FOUR, cracking strike! Outside off, back of a length, and he just wellied it on the up over wide long-on. Shabash

India 73/0   AM Rahane 38* (40b 6x4)   JW Dernbach 0.2-0-4-0

14.5

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

India 78/0   PA Patel 36* (48b 6x4)   JW Dernbach 0.5-0-9-0

20.4

Dernbach to PA Patel, FOUR, picks up another short ball and dispatches between fine leg and deep square leg although still a hint of top edge

India 97/2   PA Patel 49* (65b 7x4)   JW Dernbach 3.4-0-21-0

26.4

Bresnan to PA Patel, FOUR, well played, not every pull he's played has been convincing but this one was as he latches on and sends it in front of square

India 127/2   PA Patel 68* (83b 8x4)   TT Bresnan 6.4-0-32-0

26.5

Bresnan to PA Patel, FOUR, repeats the dose, not clever bowler from Bresnan and this one also beats deep square...excellent over for India

India 131/2   PA Patel 72* (84b 9x4)   TT Bresnan 6.5-0-36-0

28.1

Dernbach to Kohli, FOUR, that's dismissive from Kohli, he gets a back-of-a-length delivery and pulls it powerfully over straight midwicket

India 138/2   V Kohli 18* (33b 1x4)   JW Dernbach 4.1-0-27-0

30.3

Dernbach to PA Patel, FOUR, chipped, in the air, not the best shot but the placement works a treat. Mid-on can't intercept, and away it rolls

India 151/2   PA Patel 82* (92b 10x4)   JW Dernbach 5.3-0-37-0

31.3

Patel to PA Patel, FOUR, now there's the timing! Down on one knee, a full swing of the bat, and that's clean into the gap at deep midwicket

India 158/2   PA Patel 87* (95b 11x4)   SR Patel 5.3-0-24-0

32.6

Trott to PA Patel, FOUR, good aggressive thump to finish the over. A touch short from Trott, and Parthiv was onto it in a flash, clean through midwicket

India 167/2   PA Patel 92* (99b 12x4)   IJL Trott 1-0-7-0

34.1

Trott to Kohli, FOUR, too short from Trott, and slashed through point. No margin for error at his pace

India 176/2   V Kohli 35* (53b 2x4)   IJL Trott 1.1-0-11-0

35.3

Broad to Kohli, FOUR, short, slashed, top-edged, safe. No cutting that off at third man

India 184/2   V Kohli 41* (60b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 6.3-0-34-2

38.1

Anderson to Raina, FOUR, emphatic! Full and wide, and leathered on one knee, over extra cover. Not sure he'll get many more in that slot ...

India 198/3   SK Raina 5* (3b 1x4)   JM Anderson 8.1-0-37-1

39.2

Patel to Kohli, FOUR, finds the gap at deep midwicket, just a touch too short

India 206/3   V Kohli 55* (72b 4x4)   SR Patel 7.2-0-33-0

India 211/4   MS Dhoni 5* (5b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 8.2-0-43-2

40.6

Broad to Raina, FOUR, a poor piece of fielding third man gives Raina a boundary, it was played with an open face through backward point and Dernbach makes a mess if his sliding attempt to stop it

India 216/4   SK Raina 11* (7b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 9-0-48-2

47.2

Bresnan to Dhoni, FOUR, he connects with this one, heaves it through square leg and splits the deep fielders

India 258/4   MS Dhoni 24* (28b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 8.2-0-45-0
