Match drawn

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150  | Overs 151-200

5.6

Anderson to Jaffer, SIX, short but much too wide, Jaffer leans back,slashes the ball over gully and it carries all the way. Quite safe as there is no third man and the width allowed him the freedom to throw the bat at it

India 21/0   W Jaffer 18* (18b 3x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 3-1-19-0

43.5

Panesar to Karthik, SIX, another imperious shot from Karthik, a couple of steps down the track and lofts Panesar effortlessly over mid-off and over the short boundary towards the pavilion

India 183/1   KD Karthik 85* (132b 9x4 1x6)   MS Panesar 12.5-2-43-0

71.2

Panesar to Ganguly, SIX, down the track and lofted sweetly over long-on

India 259/3   SC Ganguly 29* (48b 4x4 1x6)   MS Panesar 16.2-2-58-0

127.1

Panesar to Dhoni, SIX, splendid shot, driven right over the top wide of long-on - hitting against the spin

India 471/6   MS Dhoni 60* (68b 7x4 1x6)   MS Panesar 28.1-3-101-0

127.3

Panesar to Dhoni, SIX, down the track and shouldered straight over long-on for a smashing shot

India 479/6   MS Dhoni 68* (70b 7x4 2x6)   MS Panesar 28.3-3-109-0

130.3

Pietersen to Dhoni, SIX, Dhoni doesn't really mess around, stepping down and muscling that one right over lond0on into the middle tier

India 502/6   MS Dhoni 86* (79b 9x4 3x6)   KP Pietersen 0.3-0-6-0

130.4

Pietersen to Dhoni, SIX, short and crashed again - this one pulled up and over square, off a top-edge

India 508/6   MS Dhoni 92* (80b 9x4 4x6)   KP Pietersen 0.4-0-12-0

157.4

Panesar to Kumble, SIX, what a way to bring up the 600, Kumble uses his feet and comes down the pitch, he gets to the pitch of the ball and sends it soaring over the long-on fence with a free swing off the arms

India 601/9   A Kumble 82* (149b 12x4 1x6)   MS Panesar 38.4-5-140-1

165.3

Panesar to Sreesanth, SIX, huge swipe through and across the line to bring up another fifty partnership. Extraordinary. No Nel-style disco hips, though, alas

India 642/9   S Sreesanth 22* (17b 4x4 1x6)   MS Panesar 42.3-5-154-1
