NatWest Series [India in England] - 5th ODI

England v India

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

10.1

Dernbach to Rahane, 2 leg byes, great start! Dernbach seams his first delivery sharply back in, beating Rahane on the inside edge and rapping him on the front pad. The appeal is turned down as the ball rolls to third man ... Close shout

10.2

Dernbach to Rahane, 1 leg bye, again he hits the pad, but this time the ball goes to leg to allow a single

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

10.4

Dernbach to Rahane, 1 run, nudged into space by Rahane, another sharp single the result

10.5

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

10.6

Dernbach to Rahane, no run, deceived by the slower ball! Well Dernbach didn't wait long to use his favourite weapon, and Rahane didn't really read it at all. He was through his leg-side push before the ball even got to him

India 49/0   JW Dernbach 1-0-3-0

12.1

Dernbach to Rahane, OUT, gone! Dernbach strikes. Rahane attempted a mow to leg, but the ball - quite possibly another slower one - took the top edge and looped down to third man, where Finn sprinted across to his left and took a great diving catch

AM Rahane c Finn b Dernbach 26 (54m 47b 3x4 0x6) SR: 55.31

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

12.6

Dernbach to Dravid, no run, on a length and straight, Dravid presses half forward to defend right under the eyes in his own inimitable style

India 53/1   JW Dernbach 2-0-4-1

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

14.2

Dernbach to Dravid, 1 run, Dravid turns the wrists over a full one and finds a single at midwicket despite the efforts of the fielder there

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   JW Dernbach 3-0-7-1

16.1

Dernbach to Dravid, no run, Dernbach continues his economical work, Dravid staying deep in the crease to defend

16.2

Dernbach to Dravid, no run, a little fuller this time, but it's aimed right at off stump and again Dravid opts for defence

16.3

Dernbach to Dravid, no run, punched, on the up, to cover. Straight to the fielder

16.4

Dernbach to Dravid, FOUR, runs! The gap at cover is miniscule, but Dravid has threaded it to perfection with a backfoot drive. It didn't appear as though he had timed it, but the ball beat the fielder to the boundary

16.5

Dernbach to Dravid, 1 run, and he follows that up with a dinked single

16.6

Dernbach to Kohli, 1 run, slashed down to third man, and Kohli is off the mark

India 64/2   JW Dernbach 4-0-13-1

18.1

Dernbach to Kohli, no run, did this keep a little low? Kohli played it as if it did, bending right down to the ground after a slapped drive went to point

18.2

Dernbach to Kohli, 1 run, Kohli flashes outside off to get the ball down to third man

18.3

Dernbach to Dravid, FOUR, shot! Tremendous stroke from Dravid. He's signing out in style. This was a cut, on the walk and with the weight going forward. The ball screamed out of the middle of the bat, backward point didn't even move

18.4

Dernbach to Dravid, 1 run, a similar stroke from Dravid, but this time the ball takes the bottom half of the bat and goes to third man. Are we seeing evidence of inconsistent bounce?

18.5

Dernbach to Kohli, no run, Dernbach hones in on the top of off, Kohli defends

18.6

Dernbach to Kohli, 1 run, this one tails in to the right-hander a touch through the air, and was a little straight to start with. Kohli nudges to midwicket for one

Dernbach to Dhoni, FOUR, full and wide, stretches to reach it and slices it over point for four more, intelligently done
