India tour of Ireland, England and Scotland, 2007 / Wicket commentary

NatWest Series [India in England] - 6th ODI

England v India

India won by 2 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)

0.2

Khan to Cook, OUT, gone! Nipped off the pitch, a hint of swing, an outside edge and Dhoni does the rest.

AN Cook c †Dhoni b Khan 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 0/1   MJ Prior 0* (0b)   Z Khan 0.2-0-0-1

3.3

Agarkar to Prior, OUT, but he's on the button this time - very straight, Prior was a long way across his stumps when the ball rapped him. Now then, height could be a factor, and Hawk-Eye has it going over by an inch or so. Nevertheless, he's on his way

MJ Prior lbw b Agarkar 6 (13m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

England 20/2   IR Bell 14* (14b 3x4)   AB Agarkar 1.3-0-11-1

16.5

Chawla to Bell, OUT, he's bowled him! The topper from Piyush and Bell is completely outfoxed. Down on one knee, he tries to smash him over the top but is clean bowled

IR Bell b Chawla 49 (74m 59b 10x4 0x6) SR: 83.05

England 79/3   KP Pietersen 19* (35b 2x4)   PP Chawla 1.5-0-5-1

17.3

Ganguly to Pietersen, OUT, punched out to cover, and they go for a single - this could be a disaster. In comes the throw, Dhoni whips off the bails but the umpires haven't called for a replay. But hold on - drama here - Collingwood, according to the big screen replay, is short of his ground! And after a bit of a delay, and a referral to the TV umpire, Collingwood's given his marching orders by the umpire

PD Collingwood run out 1 (7m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

England 83/4   KP Pietersen 19* (36b 2x4)   SC Ganguly 3.3-0-11-0

30.2

Yuvraj Singh to Pietersen, 1 run, OUT, horrible cricket - Pietersen flaps at a wide ball but doesn't quite get hold of it. He turns for two, but Shah remains rooted to his crease and although Pietersen is stranded nine-tenths of the way towards the other end. An almighty mix-up, but a tidy enough throw

KP Pietersen run out 53 (115m 82b 4x4 0x6) SR: 64.63

England 137/5   OA Shah 19* (31b 2x4)   Yuvraj Singh 1.2-0-6-0

44.2

Khan to Wright, OUT, punched to mid-on and Wright sets off for a single, but he's timed it very well and mid-on throws down the stumps. The third umpire is called for, and Wright is a few inches short of his ground

LJ Wright run out 50 (52m 39b 7x4 1x6) SR: 128.20

England 243/6   OA Shah 74* (76b 6x4 2x6)   Z Khan 8.2-0-34-1
