NatWest Series [India in England] - 4th ODI

England v India

Match tied (D/L method)

0.1

Anderson to PA Patel, no run, he finds good shape back in towards Parthiv straight away, the diminutive left-hander getting back and across to defend his first ball

0.2

Anderson to PA Patel, 2 runs, confident start! Just the one sighter for Parthiv, who rocks back and pulls the second delivery in the air to deep midwicket ... It's chased all the way to the boundary, and Ben Stokes does really well to claw it back just before the rope

0.3

Anderson to PA Patel, 1 leg bye, a better length from Anderson, but as the ball curls from off to leg the line is a little off and they pick up a single off the bat/pad to fine leg

0.4

Anderson to Rahane, 1 wide, this one doesn't swing, and then line takes it down past leg stump. Wide called

0.4

Anderson to Rahane, no run, Anderson teases Rahane outside off with an outswinger but, mindful of his dismissal in the last match, Rahane lets it go

0.5

Anderson to Rahane, 1 wide, Anderson is a little off here, again he hurls one down leg as the ball doesn't swing. Is the slope messing with his rhythm?

0.5

Anderson to Rahane, no run, the mixed bag continues, as he follows that up with another good outswinger outside off. Rahane almost has a fiddle at it, but opts to leave

0.6

Anderson to Rahane, 1 run, tucked off the hip, the ball rolling behind square, and Rahane is off the mark

India 6/0   JM Anderson 1-0-5-0

2.1

Anderson to Rahane, no run, beaten by the outswinger! Anderson draws Rahane forward and curls the ball past his outside edge

2.2

Anderson to Rahane, no run, this one hits the seam and holds its line, Rahane defending to leg

2.3

Anderson to Rahane, no run, perhaps just a little short of a good length, Rahane staying deep in his crease

2.4

Anderson to Rahane, no run, Anderson targets the pads, Rahane nudging to square leg

2.5

Anderson to Rahane, no run, a little fuller, outside off, defended

2.6

India 7/0   JM Anderson 2-1-5-0

4.1

Anderson to Rahane, no run, snaking gently away through the air as Rahane gets onto the front foot to defend

4.2

Anderson to Rahane, no run, forced, on the up, to cover

4.3

Anderson to Rahane, no run, Rahane looks for the drop-and-run single to cover point, but the fielder is in too quickly

4.4

Anderson to Rahane, no run, pitched right up outside off, Rahane hanging is bat out to limply drive back to the bowler

4.5

Anderson to Rahane, no run, Rahane presses well forward, the ball hitting the seam and coming in to him as the ball is squirted defensively to leg

Anderson to Rahane, 1 run, clipped just wide of midwicket, and they charge through for one

India 9/0   JM Anderson 3-1-6-0

6.1

Anderson to Rahane, no run, Anderson hits a good length, Rahane defends

6.2

Anderson to Rahane, 1 leg bye, nicely bowled again from Anderson, this one jagging in to the right-hander to strike him on the pad. Parthiv senses the chance for a quick single off the pad, and calls straight away

6.3

Anderson to PA Patel, SIX, shot! Parthiv plays the pick-up pull really well, lifting this off a length and in front of square on the leg side. The ball lands just over the boundary marker, so that's six

6.4

Anderson to PA Patel, no run, good response from Anderson! This one bursts off the seam past Parthiv's outside edge

6.5

Anderson to PA Patel, FOUR, top-edged! But it rockets up and over Kieswetter and bounces down to the boundary. He was looking for that pick-up shot again, but the length wasn't quite there this time. India are looking to push on after a quiet start

6.6

Anderson to PA Patel, no run, great lines once more from Anderson. Parthiv isn't quite sure whether to come forward or back, and is beaten swishing outside off

India 25/0   JM Anderson 4-1-16-0

8.1

Anderson to PA Patel, no run, Anderson pitches up, searching for swing, and Parthiv drives to mid-on

8.2

Anderson to PA Patel, no run, flashing outside off! This was shorter and a little wider from Anderson. Parthiv attempted to make the most of it, but couldn't find the connection

8.3

Anderson to PA Patel, 1 run, driven just wide of mid-off, and there's just enough time for a scampered single

8.4

Anderson to Rahane, 2 runs, clipped off the toes through square leg, and they push hard for the second. Hmm, perhaps a little too hard, as Parthiv is stepping a little gingerly after tumbling over at the non-striker's end. He seems to be ok.

8.5

Anderson to Rahane, no run, Anderson continues to keep Rahane quiet, as the ball is tapped to a fielder

8.6

Anderson to Rahane, no run, full and quite wide, inviting the drive. Rahane lays into it, coming forward, but picks out the cover fielder with precision

24.1

Anderson to Kohli, 1 run, the safest single now, with a push off the front foot to sweeper cover

24.2

Anderson to Dravid, 1 run, width outside off stump, he goes for the cut, doesn't get hold of it, but enough bat and timing on it to get it down to sweeper cover

24.3

Anderson to Kohli, no run, Anderson is sure as he shouts out an appeal, Virat hit on the pads as he shuffles across and tries to work on the leg side, misses and is hit high on the pads, umpire Erasmus is unmoved, replays show that ball would have clipped top of leg

24.4

Anderson to Kohli, no run, tight line, back of a length, pushed back to the bowler

24.5

26.2

41.2

India 185/4   JM Anderson 8-2-27-0

43.1

Anderson to Dhoni, FOUR, a huge hit flies miles in the air ... but has he got the distance on it? There are men out at deep midwicket and long-on, but the ball bounces right between them and bounces over the rope for four!

43.2

Anderson to Dhoni, FOUR, four more! Short and wide outside off, Dhoni finds the gap with a scything cut and there's no-one out on the off side boundary to stop that

43.3

Anderson to Dhoni, 1 run, Anderson finds a straighter line and bowls this one a little shorter, Dhoni hopping back and dinking to cover for a frantic single

43.4

Anderson to Raina, SIX, that is massive! Right in the slot for Raina, Anderson dishing up a friendly leg stump half volley. Still, it had to be hit and Raina sent it sailing into the third tier of the stands with a powerful pick-up off the legs

43.5

Anderson to Raina, 1 leg bye, Raina attempts to repeat the shot but can't pull it off a second time, but they scamper through for a quick leg bye

43.6

Anderson to Dhoni, 1 wide, Anderson's frailty at the death is being exposed here, as he sprints in and then hurls the ball down the leg side to be called wide. He looks just a little rattled

43.6

Anderson to Dhoni, 1 run, a tip-and-run single to cover ends the over

India 210/4   JM Anderson 9-2-44-0

48.1

Anderson to Dhoni, 2 runs, Dhoni tried to smear the covers off the ball with this shot, scything through the line at a full one, his left leg raised. Just the single however, the ball going to long-off

48.2

Anderson to Dhoni, 1 run, full again from Anderson, a slower one and Dhoni angles his bat to get the ball through gully

48.3

Anderson to Raina, 1 run, Raina follows suit, jabbing down on a yorker outside off to pick up a single to third man

48.4

Anderson to Dhoni, 1 run, Anderson continues what has been a surprisingly steady over by sending down a pinpoint yorker, just the one run as Dhoni digs it out

48.5

Anderson to Raina, FOUR, Anderson comes round the wicket to change the angle, but then offers Raina a high full toss outside off that is gleefully slapped over backward point for four

48.6

Anderson to Raina, FOUR, shot! Raina keeps his right elbow high as he drives in the air and down the ground. Bresnan charges round from long-off and does well to get to it, but then palms the ball over the boundary. Jimmy is fuming.

India 270/4   JM Anderson 10-2-57-0
