NatWest Series [India in England] - 4th ODI

England v India

Match tied (D/L method)

13.1

Broad to PA Patel, no run, Broad is full to start, Parthiv's flat-footed drive going to mid-off

13.2

Broad to PA Patel, 1 run, guided down to third man, an easy single taken

13.3

Broad to Rahane, OUT, gone! Broad strikes in his first over. He aimed for a surprise yorker, and Rahane played over the top of what turned out to be a low, dipping full toss. Broad appeals, the umpire's finger quickly goes up. Strangely, Rahane never really looked comfortable in this innings.

AM Rahane lbw b Broad 38 (60m 53b 5x4 1x6) SR: 71.69

13.4

Broad to Dravid, no run, Dravid is tested first ball as yet again Broad is very full and straight, but he does enough to dig it out to mid-on

13.5

Broad to Dravid, no run, on a length outside off, Dravid stepping across and leaving alone

13.6

Broad to Dravid, no run, left alone outside off once more

India 65/1   SCJ Broad 1-0-1-1

15.1

Broad to PA Patel, no run, full of length from Broad, Parthiv defending off middle

15.2

Broad to PA Patel, OUT, Broad strikes again! Parthiv had profited from the pull shot in this innings, but it has now led to his dismissal. This wasn't quite short enough for the shot, but he went through with it, looking to mow the ball in the air over midwicket. Bopara got himself underneath the swirling chance, tumbling to the ground as he took the chance

PA Patel c Bopara b Broad 27 (69m 32b 3x4 1x6) SR: 84.37

15.3

15.4

Broad to Kohli, no run, comes in from a length, Virat is forward and across and blocks

15.5

Broad to Kohli, no run, nothing push really, really feeble, there was some noise as the length ball passed the bat, England go up in unison, the sound was bat hitting pad

19.5

Broad to Kohli, no run, opens the face and runs a length ball outside off to point

India 106/2   SCJ Broad 6-0-20-2

38.1

38.2

Broad to Dhoni, no run, on a length and straight. Dhoni stands at the crease and taps it back down the track

38.3

Broad to Dhoni, no run, again Dhoni waits in his crease, this time working the ball into the leg side

Broad to Dhoni, no run, flicked wristily to backward point

India 161/4   SCJ Broad 7-0-23-2

40.2

Broad to Raina, 1 run, Raina swings across the line at a full one, but the connection isn't great so it's just the one run

40.4

India 180/4   SCJ Broad 8-0-32-2

Broad to Raina, FOUR, Raina loses his shape completely as he throws everything into the shot, but is rewarded with runs as the drive is chipped up and over mid-off

45.2

Broad to Raina, no run, a yorker outside off slips under the bat as Raina attempts to angle it to third man

Broad to Raina, no run, that's a much better length from Broad, and Raina digs the yorker out to cover

45.5

45.6

Broad to Dhoni, 2 runs, chipped, inside out, over wide long-off, but the ball plugs in the outfield. Dhoni wanted a third run there, Raina didn't, and the junior batsman is getting a reprimand

India 229/4   SCJ Broad 9-0-45-2
