NatWest Series [India in England] - 2nd ODI

England v India

England won by 7 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)

0.1

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, immediately outswing for Bresnan. Length ball outside off, shaping in towards Parthiv, defended to leg

0.2

Bresnan to PA Patel, FOUR, nice little gift for Patel, a gentle length ball down the pads, and he has glanced it fine for four

0.3

Bresnan to PA Patel, FOUR, Patel whiplashes those cuts! Short and wide, and he has smashed it between cover and cover-point, he gave it some humpty

0.4

Bresnan to PA Patel, 1 wide, and now the wide down the leg side

0.4

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, this one seams away a touch, and beats Patel's defensive prod. The in-between length with not much room

0.5

Bresnan to PA Patel, 1 run, and now he steers one to third man for a single

India 10/0   PA Patel 9* (5b 2x4)

1.1

Anderson to PA Patel, no run, swings away from Patel, who chooses to watch it through to the keeper

1.2

Anderson to PA Patel, no run, drives at this length ball, and the away swing beats the edge... watching out for the outswinger Parthiv

1.3

Anderson to PA Patel, no run, another inswinger, pitched outside leg, moving towards middle and off, flicked to square leg

1.4

Anderson to PA Patel, 2 runs, short on the pads, pulled away emphatically, along the ground, gets a couple to wide of long leg

1.5

Anderson to PA Patel, no run, good comeback, short of a length, pitches leg, nips away towards off. No room, and Patel can neither pull nor drive this

1.6

Anderson to PA Patel, 1 run, similar length, but slightly further outside off, steered away for a single

India 13/0   PA Patel 12* (11b 2x4)

2.1

Bresnan to PA Patel, SIX, little dynamo, incredible shot.... he has walked at Bresnan and flicked him for a six! The flick-pull, what wrists. Just charges at Bresnan and gets under this shortish delivery, hits the skirting at the midwicket boundary

2.2

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, short of a length, angling in, cramps him up, defended to cover

2.3

Bresnan to PA Patel, FOUR, Patel is having a ball here! Steers this short-of-a-length delivery through the vacant second slip region. Delightfully late to open the face here

2.4

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, good comeback from Bresnan, gets this to move against the angle, beats Patel's second attempt at a late-cut

2.5

Bresnan to PA Patel, SIX, Patel is reading as though the bowlers' intent is written on the big screen. Sits back deep, gets under this bouncer, which doesn't get up mind you, and pulls it up and over the area between deep square leg and deep midwicket

2.6

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, and he wants to keep the strike! Can't do it, though, as this late-cut can't beat point

India 29/0   PA Patel 28* (17b 3x4 2x6)

3.2

Anderson to PA Patel, OUT, Patel deliberates for a longish time if he should review this. I could lip-read him asking Rahane, "Aawaz aaya?" [Was there a noise?]. After much discussion he walks back. Here is what happened. This was short of a length, wide enough for Patel to try that whiplash cut again. The thin edge was taken, and England were spontaneous in their appeal. Given out. Rightly so. Whoa! HotSpot shows no edge! Snick shows one, though

PA Patel c †Kieswetter b Anderson 28 (15m 18b 3x4 2x6) SR: 155.55

India 30/1   PA Patel 28 (18b 3x4 2x6)
