India won by 9 runs
24 August 2007 - day/night match (50-over match)

Patel to Prior, OUT, Munaf gets his man. Another one that kicks up from short of length, Prior makes room by moving to the leg side and tries to flat-bat it but ends up skying it high towards mid off. Dravid comes under it and had to wait for a while before gravity took charge and took a well-judged catch. Munaf has been impressive and has broken through for India.

MJ Prior c Dravid b Patel 33 (49m 28b 6x4 0x6) SR: 117.85

England 76/1   AN Cook 36* (40b 8x4)   MM Patel 1.5-0-7-1

Patel to Cook, OUT, Munaf strikes again. Two in two. It landed on a good length, around the off stump and slanted away, Cook has a tentative poke and that proves fatal. Gone.

AN Cook c †Dhoni b Patel 36 (51m 41b 8x4 0x6) SR: 87.80

England 76/2   IR Bell 0* (0b)   MM Patel 2-0-7-2

Chawla to Pietersen, OUT, Piyush Chawla cleans up Pietersen with a one that didn't spin much. Pietersen can't believe it. It landed on the middle and off and went on almost straight. Pietersen anticipated a bit more turn and got his bat down in an angle, outside the line of the delivery. The ball threaded the bat and pad gap, slid in, brushed the inner half of the front pad and crashed into the off stump. Chawla is over the moon, Pietersen looks dazed.

KP Pietersen b Chawla 25 (50m 25b 3x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

England 134/3   IR Bell 24* (39b 4x4)   PP Chawla 0.2-0-0-1

Chawla to Collingwood, OUT, Googly does the trick. Collingwood skips down the track and plays all around a googly that landed on the off and middle line. The ball breaks in to brush the inner half of the front pad before going on to hit the stumps. Good spin bowling from both ends has led to this dismissal.

PD Collingwood b Chawla 27 (24m 25b 4x4 0x6) SR: 108.00

England 176/4   IR Bell 39* (61b 5x4)   PP Chawla 4.1-0-18-2

Powar to Flintoff, OUT, Powar entices Flintoff to his doom. Loopy flighted delivery on the off stump and Flintoff shapes for a huge lofted shot. But the ball dips rapidly on him and his attemped heave goes straight to Agarkar at deep midwicket

A Flintoff c Agarkar b Powar 9 (5m 7b 2x4 0x6) SR: 128.57

England 185/5   IR Bell 39* (64b 5x4)   RR Powar 3.5-0-19-1

Patel to Bopara, OUT, Munaf traps Bopara. Dead plumb. Full in length, on the middle stump line, Bopara, again, tries to whip it across the line but ends up playing all around it and is struck in front.

RS Bopara lbw b Patel 17 (22m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.00

England 220/6   IR Bell 54* (86b 6x4)   MM Patel 5.5-0-42-3

Chawla to Bell, OUT, goes round the stumps and gets his man. Bell charges down the track again, backing to the legside in the process, but is bit cramped up by the line - outside leg- and lofts straight to Munaf Patel at long on

IR Bell c Patel b Chawla 64 (128m 96b 6x4 1x6) SR: 66.66

England 240/7   AD Mascarenhas 9* (13b)   PP Chawla 8.3-0-47-3

Singh to Mascarenhas, OUT, Mascarenhas's breezy cameo ends. Death by aggression. He tries to pull a short-of-length delivery over midwicket but ends up lobbing it to midwicket. And then they were two.

AD Mascarenhas c Agarkar b Singh 52 (45m 39b 1x4 5x6) SR: 133.33

England 299/8   SCJ Broad 8* (17b)   RP Singh 9.4-0-55-1
