Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, massive cheers from the crowd as the ball lifts and hits Tendulkar under the arm and Bell, at leg slip, dives to his right to hold a "catch".

56.4

Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, plenty of swing, unfortunately for Anderson too much, and Tendulkar chases it round, too late

India 212/3   SR Tendulkar 3* (35b)

58.6

Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, bouncer, Tendulkar stands firm and takes a body blow - in his chest region. He then stands, expressionless. Tough as nails

Sidebottom to Tendulkar, no run, Shelled Inswinger, edged and the ball bounced off Prior's glove-tips. There was no footwork from the keeper when he came across the first slip. Sidebottom is a friendly shirehorse no more; he's furious, as well he might be after bowling so well

80.5

Tremlett to Tendulkar, no run, Tendulkar almost lost his concentration there, well outside off stump and he has a slash at it without any footwork. It was a very half-hearted effort
