India tour of England, 2nd ODI: England v India at Southampton, Sep 6, 2011
England won by 7 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)
6 September 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

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   AM Rahane 1* (2b)   JM Anderson 1.2-0-4-1

Swann to Dravid, OUT, Superbly timed again, but he finds the fielder again. This time on the full. Dravid clears the front leg and looks to slog-sweep this full delivery, but doesn't get under it. Anderson takes the catch at midwicket

R Dravid c Anderson b Swann 32 (50m 31b 2x4 0x6) SR: 103.22

India 109/2   AM Rahane 46* (37b 5x4 1x6)   GP Swann 2.2-0-16-1

Swann to Kohli, OUT, this is half mis-hit, half hung in the wind. Charges at Swann and hits this into the wind towards long-on, and finds Bell to perfection

V Kohli c Bell b Swann 9 (9m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

India 125/3   AM Rahane 53* (44b 5x4 1x6)   GP Swann 4-0-26-2

Swann to Rahane, OUT, Kohli won't be running too many for Rahane. Ajinkya looks for the straight loft that he has played so well so far, but gets too close to the pitch of the ball here, and doesn't get optimum elevation. Swann takes a smart, overhead return catch

AM Rahane c & b Swann 54 (89m 47b 5x4 1x6) SR: 114.89

India 143/4   SK Raina 16* (8b 1x4 1x6)   GP Swann 4.5-0-32-3

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

India 164/5   SK Raina 30* (13b 3x4 2x6)   TT Bresnan 2.3-0-30-1

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

India 182/6   MK Tiwary 7* (4b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 3.1-0-38-2

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

India 186/7   R Ashwin 0* (0b)   TT Bresnan 3.4-0-42-3

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   P Kumar 0* (1b)   TT Bresnan 4-0-43-3
