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

India 4/0   PA Patel 4* (2b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 0.2-0-4-0

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

India 8/0   PA Patel 8* (3b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 0.3-0-8-0

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

India 23/0   PA Patel 22* (14b 3x4 1x6)   TT Bresnan 1.3-0-20-0

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

India 35/1   R Dravid 5* (5b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 0.3-0-4-0

Dernbach to Rahane, FOUR, anticipates another short-of-a-length delivery, and is waiting with the slog-pull. Nothing wrong with the delivery, but it's gone flying over midwicket

India 64/1   AM Rahane 20* (20b 1x4 1x6)   JW Dernbach 1.2-0-7-0

Dernbach to Rahane, FOUR, he has absolutely smashed a few here, but this is nurdled for four! The slower legcutter here, but too straight, and he has played this late, just to the left of the diving keeper

India 68/1   AM Rahane 24* (22b 2x4 1x6)   JW Dernbach 1.4-0-11-0

Swann to Rahane, FOUR, top straight drive over Swann's head! Charges down the track and lofts it dead straight

India 79/1   AM Rahane 30* (25b 3x4 1x6)   GP Swann 1-0-9-0

Patel to Rahane, FOUR, superb placement here, this is short of a length, he chips this on the up. It's like driving a long hop. But again dead straight. Gets four more

India 88/1   AM Rahane 36* (28b 4x4 1x6)   SR Patel 0.5-0-9-0

Broad to Rahane, FOUR, lovely chip over extra cover... goes inside out to a length ball outside off after having given himself room. No power, all timing

India 100/1   AM Rahane 44* (34b 5x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 2.2-0-17-0

Broad to Dravid, FOUR, Dravid finds the fence! Finally a well-timed shot is placed just as well. Makes room, gets under the length ball, and drives it inside-out over extra cover. The strike-rate also crosses 100

India 106/1   R Dravid 30* (29b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 2.5-0-23-0

Swann to Raina, FOUR, lovely shot, charges at Swann, makes room, gets inside the line, and goes over extra cover with a late wristy flick in the end

India 142/3   SK Raina 15* (7b 1x4 1x6)   GP Swann 4.3-0-31-2

Dernbach to Raina, FOUR, That hitting over the cow corner has got him a four to long-on! His hitting across the line has made sure the long-on is wider than usual, and this mis-hit goes to long-on, to the right of the man. Bell mistimes the dive too

India 156/4   SK Raina 26* (11b 2x4 2x6)   JW Dernbach 3.4-0-36-0

Dernbach to Raina, FOUR, one wide slower ball too many... the off-side field is all up, and Raina smartly waits for this before lofting this over cover

India 160/4   SK Raina 30* (12b 3x4 2x6)   JW Dernbach 3.5-0-40-0

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

India 164/4   MS Dhoni 6* (4b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 2.2-0-30-0

Dernbach to Tiwary, FOUR, Dernbach is furious. Slower ball into the pads, Tiwary pulls this backward of square, and Stokes dives over it, conceding four when it should have been two

India 182/5   MK Tiwary 7* (4b 1x4)   JW Dernbach 5-0-49-0
