Broad to Dravid, no run, sits back to try and run this to third man, can't beat point

4.2

Broad to Dravid, no run, cut away powerfully, but Bell makes a diving save to his right, fielding at point

4.3

Broad to Dravid, FOUR, he has adapted to the format really well... tries the orthodox cut twice without any results, and this time he cuts it over the infield. Deliberately under it to clear the infield

4.4

Broad to Dravid, no run, that upper-cut makes Broad pitch the ball up, and immediately, like the Tests, Broad becomes twice as dangerous. Lovely outswinger here beats Dravid's drive

4.5

Broad to Dravid, no run, another outswinger makes Dravid play away from the body, can't beat short cover

6.3

Broad to Dravid, 1 run, this doesn't quite come up and he has absolutely missile-pulled this, but straight to deep square for a single

6.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, Dravid gives him the charge too, but makes too much room to end up missing this length ball outside off

Bopara to Dravid, 1 run, opens the stance a bit to make room and punch this through cover for a single

8.6

Bopara to Dravid, 2 runs, slower full toss, hit powerfully but not too far of Dernbach at deep square leg. A wayward loopy throw from Dernbach lets Dravid come back for second. He looked dead for 80% of that second run. The throw let him off. Was that the slower throw from Jade?

India 60/1   R Dravid 14* (18b 1x4)
9.6

Dernbach to Dravid, 1 run, Dravid is feeling the heat a bit here. Trying bit shots every ball. This time the bottom hand comes off as he looks to hit this over cover. Doesn't carry to the fielder in the deep, and he will get the single

India 75/1   R Dravid 19* (23b 1x4)

11.2
