India tour of Ireland, England and Scotland, 2007 / Commentary

Pataudi Trophy - 2nd Test

England v India

India won by 7 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

14.5

Singh to Collingwood, no run, yelps and oohs from the slip cordon here as Collingwood shoulders arms. Well wide of the off stump, and perfectly sensibly played

14.6

Singh to Collingwood, no run, ooh nearly! Very close to bowling Collingwood here who was almost knocked off his feet. Full, quick and swinging into the right hander who, at the very last moment, dug it out

England 47/3   PD Collingwood 0* (2b)

17.1

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, left alone outside off. Swinging wider still

17.2

Sreesanth to Collingwood, 1 run, tough too straight here and Collingwood nudges it off his pads, allowing them to scamper through for a decidedly cheeky single

England 51/3   PD Collingwood 1* (4b)

18.1

Singh to Collingwood, FOUR, well played Collingwood. A shorter ball but, given the sogginess of the pitch, it barely bounces chest-high and he pulls it in front of square

18.2

Singh to Collingwood, no run, firmly punched off the back foot by Collingwood

18.3

Singh to Collingwood, 2 runs, ooh close! Very, very close to inside-edging this onto his stumps. Short, wide of the off stump and he tries to cut it but it got a little big on him, in fact. Inside edges it down to fine leg

18.4

Singh to Collingwood, FOUR, neat stroke. Vast amounts of bottom hand but the ball races (as much as any ball can in such moist conditions) straight down the ground for four

18.5

Singh to Collingwood, 1 leg bye, wrong line, down the leg side and he whips him (the ball) to fine leg

England 70/3   PD Collingwood 11* (9b 2x4)

19.1

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, wide, and swinging wider. It's far out and Collingwood isn't interested

19.2

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, ah, lovely shot from Collingwood for a zero. Firmly punched to mid-on

19.3

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, again down the leg side

19.4

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, and again, miles down the leg side

19.5

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, and it's on target this time, just outside the off stump and it's left alone

19.6

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, good end to a poor over, pitching this up to the right hander who digs it out

England 70/3   PD Collingwood 11* (15b 2x4)

20.2

Singh to Collingwood, 3 runs, very neat punch off the back foot - placing it past extra cover and they scamper three

20.5

Singh to Collingwood, no run, good line, attacking the stumps and it's firmly defended

20.6

Singh to Collingwood, FOUR, shot. A calm punch on the front foot - nothing more than a push, really - but he times it beautifully through extra cover for four

England 79/3   PD Collingwood 18* (18b 3x4)

21.5

Khan to Collingwood, no run, left alone outside off

21.6

Khan to Collingwood, no run, several miles wide of the off stump. Collingwood couldn't have reached that with, well - you get the idea

England 80/3   PD Collingwood 18* (20b 3x4)

23.1

Khan to Collingwood, 2 runs, on his legs, clipped just backward of square - and it was very neatly played, too, staying right back in his crease

23.2

Khan to Collingwood, FOUR, oh, don't bowl there. Down the leg side, Collingwood clips this through midwicket for four. Super shot

23.3

Khan to Collingwood, no run, pushed off the back foot to cover

23.4

Khan to Collingwood, 1 run, again, on the leg stump, Collingwood clips him to fine-leg

England 87/3   PD Collingwood 25* (24b 4x4)

26.1

Khan to Collingwood, no run, swinging back into Collingwood who diligently defends it back to the bowler

26.2

Khan to Collingwood, no run, cracked on the front foot to cover

26.3

Khan to Collingwood, no run, ooh that's a belter from Zaheer, cutting this across Collingwood who plays and misses

26.4

Khan to Collingwood, no run, punched to mid-on's right who makes excellent ground to field

26.5

Khan to Collingwood, no run, well left outside his off stump

26.6

Khan to Collingwood, no run, defended on the front foot

England 95/3   PD Collingwood 25* (30b 4x4)

28.1

Khan to Collingwood, no run, a bouncer, but an ineffectual one down the leg side

28.2

Khan to Collingwood, 1 run, short of a length and it rises up onto Collingwood who plays it well, nudging it to leg off his pads

England 96/3   PD Collingwood 26* (32b 4x4)

29.1

Ganguly to Collingwood, no run, huge, huge appeal from the bowler but he's well outside the line here - and it hit the bat. Or did it? No, replays show it was pad-bat...close shout

29.2

Ganguly to Collingwood, no run, Collingwood comes forward confidently here, blocking it out with fervour

29.3

Ganguly to Collingwood, 1 run, nudged off his pads to bring up the pair's fifty partnership

England 97/3   PD Collingwood 27* (35b 4x4)

30.1

Khan to Collingwood, no run, and he plays and misses outside off. Encouraging bounce for the man called Zaheer, and he screams an agonising roar for his poor luck

30.2

Khan to Collingwood, no run, on the front foot Collingwood crunches this to cover, but straight to cover

30.3

Khan to Collingwood, no run, straighter from Zaheer this time, swinging into Collingwood's pads who defends solidly

30.4

Khan to Collingwood, no run, well bowled, finding some bounce and Collingwood goes back to chop it down

30.5

Khan to Collingwood, no run, down the leg side, it clips his thigh pad and Zaheer roars another primal scream for his wicket. He's been fired up, this series

30.6

Khan to Collingwood, no run, left alone outside off and it's another maiden

England 97/3   PD Collingwood 27* (41b 4x4)

31.6

Ganguly to Collingwood, 1 run, whipped through midwicket

England 101/3   PD Collingwood 28* (42b 4x4)

32.1

Sreesanth to Collingwood, no run, smacked off the back foot, but smacked to nowhere

32.2

Sreesanth to Collingwood, OUT, well bowled! Swinging into Collingwood who came tentatively forward, without conviction, and inside-edged it onto his stumps

PD Collingwood b Sreesanth 28 (73m 44b 4x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

England 101/4   PD Collingwood 28 (44b 4x4)
