England v India

India won by 7 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

2.3

Khan to Strauss, OUT, super delivery, right line and length and Strauss' footwork once again lets him down ... he is drawn half forward and a loose drive goes straight into Sachin Tendulkar's midriff at first slip

AJ Strauss c Tendulkar b Khan 4 (9m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

England 4/1   AN Cook 0* (6b)   Z Khan 1.3-0-4-1

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   AN Cook 10* (21b 2x4)   Z Khan 5-0-17-2

14.4

Singh to Pietersen, OUT, and he's got him - very well bowled by Singh. Full and straight, swinging back into Pietersen who tried to whip it to leg but was trapped in front - the ball would have taken out middle quite comfortably

KP Pietersen lbw b Singh 13 (38m 18b 3x4 0x6) SR: 72.22

England 47/3   AN Cook 19* (38b 3x4)   RP Singh 2.4-1-11-1

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   AN Cook 39* (100b 5x4)   S Sreesanth 8.2-4-15-1

35.5

Ganguly to Cook, OUT, and Ganguly strikes, drifting one back into Cook who is hit on the pads and Taufel answers a beseeching appeal for leg before with a nod and a finger

AN Cook lbw b Ganguly 43 (160m 111b 6x4 0x6) SR: 38.73

England 109/5   IR Bell 0* (10b)   SC Ganguly 6.5-3-9-1

45.6

Kumble to Prior, OUT, Prior drives at a wide one and Dravid holds a straightforward catch to his left at first slip ... there was an inevitability about that dismissal, Prior never looked happy against Kumble

MJ Prior c Dravid b Kumble 11 (45m 31b 2x4 0x6) SR: 35.48

England 147/6   IR Bell 25* (42b 3x4)   A Kumble 3-0-7-1

50.3

Khan to Bell, OUT, "that's out" we all yell, and right we are ... for once. A lovely full-length inswinger beats the bat, hits the pads and that's as out as out can be

IR Bell lbw b Khan 31 (83m 54b 3x4 0x6) SR: 57.40

England 157/7   CT Tremlett 4* (15b)   Z Khan 13.3-3-43-3

59.4

Kumble to Tremlett, OUT, bowled him this time. Well, we didn't need Nostradamus for that. Kumble bowling right through the meagre defences, taking middle-and-leg with the one which slid on

CT Tremlett b Kumble 20 (53m 43b 2x4 0x6) SR: 46.51

England 186/8   RJ Sidebottom 8* (27b 1x4)   A Kumble 9.4-1-23-2

62.5

Khan to Panesar, OUT, edged and gone! Good bowling from Khan, a hint of movement away from the lefthander and that's tidy at second slip, crouching into the catch

MS Panesar c Laxman b Khan 1 (12m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 10.00

England 195/9   RJ Sidebottom 16* (36b 2x4)   Z Khan 19.5-4-59-4

65.3

Kumble to Anderson, OUT, dragged it shorter this time, Anderson tried to give himself room to cut, but the ball hurried through and beat him for pace. Kumble breaks into a beam

JM Anderson b Kumble 1 (10m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

England 198/10   RJ Sidebottom 18* (48b 2x4)   A Kumble 12.3-2-32-3
