NatWest Series [India in England] - 5th ODI

England v India

England won by 6 wickets (with 10 balls remaining) (D/L method)

0.1

Bresnan to PA Patel, 4 leg byes, some swing straightaway, appeal for lbw, landed on leg stump and was moving further down, Parthiv tried to clip that fine, missed but it kissed the pads on the way to the fine-leg boundary. Replays show it pitched mostly outside leg and would have clipped leg, only just.

0.2

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, short of a good length outside off, moving away just a hint, leaves it alone

0.3

Bresnan to PA Patel, 1 run, lands on a good length on middle and leg, moves back to turn it into the leg side wide of square leg for a single

0.6

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, fullish on the off stump, Parthiv gets forward and defends it towards extra cover

India 8/0   PA Patel 1* (4b)

2.1

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, Parthiv comes forward and across to defend solidly to extra cover

2.2

Bresnan to PA Patel, 1 run, a touch short of a good length from Bresnan, and Parthiv tucks him behind square for one

2.5

Bresnan to PA Patel, 2 runs, slapped on the up past a diving backward point fielder. India's fans in the ground liked that shot

2.6

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, rising off a length outside off. Parthiv over-hits it a touch straight into the ground, and the ball ends up going nowhere

India 16/0   PA Patel 4* (8b)

3.4

Finn to PA Patel, 1 run, good running, Parthiv dropping the ball down close with a defensive shot and the batsmen setting off

India 18/0   PA Patel 5* (9b)

4.1

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, at the other end, Parthiv is happier facing Bresnan, who hits a good length on off stump and is defended to cover

4.2

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, fuller from Bresnan, not much width but Parthiv still found room for a drive to extra cover

4.3

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, Bell at backward point saves a couple of runs as the left-handed Parthiv hops onto one leg to cut

4.4

Bresnan to PA Patel, no run, great line! It looked like the cross-seamed delivery from Bresnan, and it really got big on Parthiv as he propped half forward at it. Past the outside edge

4.5

Bresnan to PA Patel, 1 run, sliced in the air through gully! There's no-one there though, and Parthiv is quite safe as he slashes on the up

India 19/0   PA Patel 6* (14b)

5.1

Finn to PA Patel, no run, great wheels from Finn, another bristling length delivery is kept out by Parthiv. Finn has really come on as a bowler this summer

5.2

Finn to PA Patel, no run, a little fuller, but still offering nothing for the drive as Parthiv stands at the crease to defend to cover

5.3

Finn to PA Patel, no run, Finn continues to nudge 90mph as this one is sent down fuller still, and is driven to mid-off

5.4

Finn to PA Patel, no run, right up to the bat this time, and dug out off the toe end to cover

5.5

Finn to PA Patel, no run, beaten on the outside edge! Parthiv shuffles at the crease but moves neither forward nor back, and there's plenty of daylight between bat and ball

5.6

Finn to PA Patel, no run, and again! Finn zones in on the perfect line to the left-handed Parthiv, who is left poking and prodding outside off

India 19/0   PA Patel 6* (20b)

6.6

Bresnan to PA Patel, 2 runs, it's in the air ... and safe! Parthiv aimed a wild swipe at a full delivery aimed at middle and off, slicing across it but getting enough on the ball to beat the off-side field

India 22/0   PA Patel 8* (21b)

7.3

Finn to PA Patel, 1 run, chopped through gully and down to third man for one

India 24/0   PA Patel 9* (22b)

9.1

Finn to PA Patel, 3 runs, clipped in the air but wide of any fielders in the leg side. It's not timed quite well enough to find the boundary, but they push hard for a third run

India 38/0   PA Patel 12* (23b)

10.3

Dernbach to PA Patel, 1 run, Parthiv presses forward and opens the face of the bat to get a length delivery down to third man

10.5

Dernbach to PA Patel, 1 run, good running by these two, Parthiv tapping it away for one more

India 49/0   PA Patel 14* (25b)

11.1

Finn to PA Patel, 1 run, well, Parthiv had an almighty swipe at this outside off, similar to the shots I play in park cricket. Similar result too, as the ball trickled down to third man

India 50/0   PA Patel 15* (26b)

12.2

Dernbach to PA Patel, no run, nudged away in defence after the wicket

12.3

Dernbach to PA Patel, no run, tapped into the off side

12.4

Dernbach to PA Patel, no run, Parthiv looks for that pick-up pull that he plays so well on occasion, but the length wasn't quite right and he didn't come close to putting this away. In fact, the inside edge bounced just past the stumps!

12.5

Dernbach to PA Patel, 1 run, turned off the hip and down to fine leg

India 53/1   PA Patel 16* (30b)

13.1

Finn to PA Patel, no run, and why not, as he fizzes another one past the outside edge of Parthiv's bat

13.2

Finn to PA Patel, 1 run, a touch straighter. There's bat on ball this time, and Parthiv finds a single near midwicket

India 54/1   PA Patel 17* (32b)

14.1

Dernbach to PA Patel, 1 run, Parthiv waits in his crease for a slightly slower length delivery - one of Dernbach's many variations no doubt - and guides it to third man

14.3

Dernbach to PA Patel, no run, Parthiv looks to break free! He dances down the track at Dernbach and swings with gusto, but hits only fresh air

14.4

Dernbach to PA Patel, no run, just short of a good length, but Parthiv is content to defend off the back foot

14.5

Dernbach to PA Patel, no run, slower one! This time Parthiv was looking for the pull to midwicket, but he's undone by the lack of pace

14.6

Dernbach to PA Patel, 1 run, slow yet again. This time it is picked, Parthiv paddling through square leg

India 57/1   PA Patel 19* (37b)

15.1

Swann to PA Patel, no run, looped down on middle and off, and a bottom-edged cut rolls to cover

15.2

Swann to PA Patel, OUT, a first-over wicket for Swann! It's been a while since he managed that. Parthiv was trying to take advantage of the attacking field, but got underneath an attempted chip down the ground, getting much more height than distance. Bresnan ran back from mid-on and made no mistake. Odd innings from Parthiv. He switched between cautious defence and all-out attack without much success.

PA Patel c Bresnan b Swann 19 (69m 39b 0x4 0x6) SR: 48.71

India 57/2   PA Patel 19 (39b)
