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

33.1

Collymore to Pietersen, no run, shuffles over towards off his first instinct is to have a dab as the ball sails down the corridor, but he instantly pulls out of the shot

33.2

Collymore to Pietersen, no run, on the button, Pietersen defends, killing the ball - even so there's a call of "No!", just to clarify, presumably, that hari-kiri isn't on the cards

33.3

Collymore to Pietersen, no run, defends forward

33.4

Collymore to Pietersen, no run, defended into the covers

33.6

Collymore to Pietersen, FOUR, outside off, Pietersen reaches out with a wristy cover drive

England 121/2   KP Pietersen 4* (6b 1x4)

34.4

Sammy to Pietersen, no run, walks forward to move the ball from just outside off into the midwicket - the ball dangling in the air for a while, but there's nobody close enough

34.5

Sammy to Pietersen, no run, fuller delivery, dug out around the ankles with a drive into the covers

37.1

Collymore to Pietersen, no run, outside off, but a good length, Pietersen drives simply to mid-off. Lest there be any confusion, there's a clear call of "Wait!"

37.2

Collymore to Pietersen, no run, outside off, controlled down into the gully

37.3

Collymore to Pietersen, 2 runs, worked into the covers off the back foot and an overthrow allows some fairy-stepping back for two

37.5

Collymore to Pietersen, no run, defended towards mid-on

37.6

Collymore to Pietersen, OUT, attempted bouncer - and gets the reward! Pietersen's eyes lit up, and couldn't control the hook which slips down deep square leg's throat, Bravo holding on without alarm

KP Pietersen c Bravo b Collymore 9 (24m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 56.25

England 132/3   KP Pietersen 9 (16b 1x4)
