NatWest Series [India in England] - 3rd ODI

England v India

England won by 3 wickets (with 7 balls remaining) (D/L method)

0.4

Anderson to Rahane, OUT, caught at slip! Anderson angles the ball into the right-hander, pitches on a great length close to off stump, and gets it to seam away from the batsman. Rahane stays in his crease and pokes tentatively. The ball takes the edge and goes straight to Trott at first slip. It's Rahane's first failure on the tour. Had to happen some time.

AM Rahane c Trott b Anderson 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 1/1   PA Patel 1* (1b)   JM Anderson 0.4-0-1-1

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)   TT Bresnan 2.2-0-3-0

6.4

Anderson to PA Patel, OUT, Anderson destroys the stumps. He bowls a full ball for the first time, after several good length ones. Parthiv is stuck in his crease and falls over towards the off as he attempts to play across the line. He misses and loses middle stump

PA Patel b Anderson 3 (28m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 15.78

India 13/3   V Kohli 4* (7b)   JM Anderson 3.4-1-7-2

10.2

Anderson to Kohli, OUT, Kohli's struggle has ended and this is now too easy for Anderson. He pitches just short of a length outside off and seams the ball away, Kohli stays in his crease and hangs his bat out, getting an edge to the wicketkeeper. Soft, soft dismissal. Anderson is having a terrific game, three wickets and a direct hit, in his 150th ODI.

V Kohli c †Kieswetter b Anderson 7 (18m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.88

India 25/4   SK Raina 8* (11b 1x4)   JM Anderson 5.2-1-13-3

18.6

Broad to Raina, OUT, caught behind! A rubbish shot. Broad pitched short around middle and off and angled the ball away from the left-hander. Raina cleared his front foot out of the way and slogged, aiming for deep midwicket. He was trying to pull from miles outside off and got an edge through the the wicketkeeper. Hideous shot.

SK Raina c †Kieswetter b Broad 21 (54m 36b 1x4 1x6) SR: 58.33

India 58/5   MS Dhoni 17* (27b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 3-1-8-1

44.1

Bresnan to Dhoni, OUT, caught! It's a low full toss and Dhoni's attempt at hitting through midwicket ends up in a scoop over the bowler's head. Cook runs to his right from mid-on and takes a simple catch. Dhoni looked restricted in his movement in these last few overs

MS Dhoni c Cook b Bresnan 69 (142m 103b 5x4 0x6) SR: 66.99

India 170/6   RA Jadeja 53* (75b 6x4)   TT Bresnan 8.1-2-19-1

49.2

Dernbach to Jadeja, OUT, that's the second slower ball and Jadeja gets under it and sends it into orbit. He's hit it miles in the air down the ground but not far enough. Bell settles under the ball a few feet inside the boundary at long-on

RA Jadeja c Bell b Dernbach 78 (132m 89b 10x4 0x6) SR: 87.64

India 229/7   R Ashwin 34* (17b 5x4)   JW Dernbach 9.2-1-48-1
