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

0.6

Bresnan to Rahane, no run, nice swing now, the perfect stuff for the right-hand batsman, pitches middle and off, swings away, Rahane defends from the crease

India 10/0   TT Bresnan 1-0-10-0

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   TT Bresnan 2-0-26-0

20.1

Bresnan to Dhoni, no run, and starts with a near-perfect yorker just outside off. Dot

20.2

Bresnan to Dhoni, FOUR, this yorker goes wrong, and Dhoni flicks this low full toss wristily over midwicket

20.3

Bresnan to Dhoni, OUT, Helicopter. Crash-lands in Bell's lap. This is inches short of yorker, Dhoni tries the trademark whiplash flick, is too close to the pitch of it, ends up skying it to long-on

MS Dhoni c Bell b Bresnan 6 (9m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

20.4

Bresnan to Raina, SIX, and what striking Raina is indulging in! This is some superb wrists and timing. This is a length ball outside off, he makes room, and then punches this with an open face, over deep point. Lovely hitting

20.5

Bresnan to Raina, 1 run, a mis-hit for a change, as he inside-edges this into his ankle. However, he charges through for one

20.6

Bresnan to Tiwary, 1 run, Tiwary gets a short ball into his ribs as the welcome to England. He manages to pull it to long leg for a single

India 172/5   TT Bresnan 3-0-38-1

22.1

Bresnan to Raina, OUT, Stokes makes amends for that misfield. Raina gets too much under this length ball, trying to clear deep square, but the leading edge seems to have touched the moon and come back. Stokes at deep square keeps his eyes on it, and has to dive forward at last moment to complete the catch. What a cameo from Raina, though

SK Raina c Stokes b Bresnan 40 (30m 19b 3x4 3x6) SR: 210.52

22.2

Bresnan to Tiwary, 2 runs, full toss outside off, and he has agricultured it wide of deep midwicket for a couple

22.3

Bresnan to Tiwary, 2 runs, slower bouncer, he pulls it, mis-times it, but finds the gap wide of long leg for a couple

22.4

Bresnan to Tiwary, OUT, Bell has been absolutely sensational at long-on today! Tiwary clears the front leg and lofts this down the ground. Bell runs to his left making good ground, and then makes the dive in front to finish this ripper of a catch

MK Tiwary c Bell b Bresnan 11 (11m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 157.14

22.5

Bresnan to Ashwin, 1 run, Ashwin tries the scoop over fine leg, but this is wide outside off. The leading edge gets him a single

22.6

Bresnan to Kumar, OUT, slower short ball outside off, Kumar is well early into the shot, they try to sneak in the bye, but Kieswetter runs Ashwin out

R Ashwin run out 1 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

India 187/8   TT Bresnan 4-0-43-3
