5.2

Bresnan to PA Patel, OUT, Dravid's run out! Parthiv pushes the ball towards mid-off and runs. Dravid is slow to respond and slow while running. Anderson swoops on the ball, picks up with one hand, lets it rip at the striker's end and scores a direct hit. Dravid didn't sprint, or dive or try to get in the line of the ball. He even looked behind to see where the ball was, which slowed him down. He's gone by a distance. That bit of running was from a bygone era.

R Dravid run out 2 (19m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 18.18

India 9/2   PA Patel 3* (18b)

India 13/3   PA Patel 3 (19b)
