NatWest Series [India in England] - 4th ODI

England v India

Match tied (D/L method)

10.1

Bresnan to Rahane, no run, decent start from him. Perhaps a touch short of a good length, but it cramps Rahane for room as he defends to leg

10.2

Bresnan to Rahane, FOUR, flicked with balance and poise! Rahane has finally found the middle of the bat, and tellingly it's with a shot that he didn't try to over-hit at all. He just leaned over this leg-stump half volley, turning his wrists on the ball to send the ball racing to square leg

10.3

Bresnan to Rahane, no run, Bresnan tightens his line and is defended

10.4

Bresnan to Rahane, no run, full, the line outside off stump, and Rahane comes forward to push to cover

10.5

Bresnan to Rahane, 1 run, yet another leading edge! Rahane had set himself to crack this into the leg side, but the ball seamed and bounced away from him, looping over the vacant slip area and bouncing down to third man

10.6

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, Parthiv looks to be aggressive, walking down at Bresnan, but the bowler re-adjusts well and there's no run to be had

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, Bresnan has quickly settled into a rhythm, zoning in on off stump to keep Parthiv quiet

12.4

Bresnan to PA Patel, FOUR, slapped! Parthiv won't be kept quiet for long, stepping down the wicket and seizing on a short delivery, an explosive pull arcing away in front of square. Great shot

12.5

Bresnan to PA Patel, 1 run, flashed behind square on the off side as Bresnan offers width, third man sprinting round to cut it off
