England v India

India won by 7 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

2.4

Khan to Vaughan, 2 runs, too full, Vaughan leans into what is no more than a push and the ball scurries through the covers

2.5

Khan to Vaughan, no run, into line to block

2.6

Khan to Vaughan, no run, no stroke attempted to one a foot outside off stump

England 6/1   MP Vaughan 2* (3b)

4.1

Khan to Vaughan, no run, slanted into Vaughan who defends

4.2

Khan to Vaughan, no run, into Vaughan's pads and he gets into line and blocks comfortably

4.3

Khan to Vaughan, no run, much the same, into the right hander and he defends with plenty of time

4.4

Khan to Vaughan, no run, very wide - in one-day wide territory - and Vaughan makes no effort to do anything with it

4.5

Khan to Vaughan, no run, squirted into the leg side off the pads

4.6

Khan to Vaughan, 1 run, defensive push to where conventional extra cover would usually be, but there's a gap there and Vaughan trots through for the single

England 11/1   MP Vaughan 3* (9b)

5.1

Sreesanth to Vaughan, no run, much better line to the right hander, a stifled cry as Vaughan meets it with bat and pad

5.2

Sreesanth to Vaughan, no run, Vaughan leaves but that was still the right line, inches outside the off stump

5.3

Sreesanth to Vaughan, no run, slightly too much width, no shot

5.4

Sreesanth to Vaughan, no run, and again, swinging from outside off to even wider outside off

5.5

Sreesanth to Vaughan, no run, overcompensates, down the leg side and no swing this time, Dhoni skips across to take it around waist height

5.6

Sreesanth to Vaughan, no run, another leave to end the over

England 11/1   MP Vaughan 3* (15b)

6.4

Khan to Vaughan, 2 runs, an attempted drive comes off the outside edge and so goes much straighter than intended

6.5

Khan to Vaughan, no run, full, Vaughan half forward to defend into the off side

6.6

Khan to Vaughan, no run, booming outswinger which was way too wide to trouble the batsman

England 18/1   MP Vaughan 5* (18b)

8.1

Khan to Vaughan, no run, swinging across Vaughan who leaves but only after giving the delivery every consideration

8.2

Khan to Vaughan, no run, short, Vaughan very late on a pull and he is nutted by a direct hit

8.3

Khan to Vaughan, no run, left alone outside off

8.4

Khan to Vaughan, FOUR, Zaheer drifts to leg, Vaughan flicks the ball off his hips and its timed and placed, long leg has no chance to get round

8.5

Khan to Vaughan, no run, a wide awayswinger, an adjustment too far

8.6

Khan to Vaughan, OUT, another pearl from Zaheer, Vaughan forced to play defensively at one drifting away from him, and a thick outside edge gives Tendulkar at first slip his second catch of the afternoon, lower down this time

MP Vaughan c Tendulkar b Khan 9 (30m 24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

England 24/2   MP Vaughan 9 (24b 1x4)
