ICC World Twenty20 - 10th match, Group A

England v India

India won by 90 runs

2.5

Finn to Kohli, no run, good welcome from Finn. Short of a length, on middle and off, seaming away a touch, and Kohli is right behind it

2.6

Finn to Kohli, FOUR, can this man do anything wrong? He has just defended a peach, but as soon as he gets width on alength ball, he drives it between cover and cover-point. Seems he could do it in his sleep

India 28/1   V Kohli 4* (2b 1x4)

3.2

Broad to Kohli, FOUR, Kohli is on. Definitely on. Short of a length, outside off, and he has punched it away square for a four

3.3

Broad to Kohli, no run, gets a much easier ball this time, a half-volley, but finds short extra cover with it

3.4

Broad to Kohli, no run, good come back from Broad. Short of a length, outside off, seaming away, Kohli follows it, and is beaten

3.5

Broad to Kohli, 1 run, slightly fuller, slightly slower, steered away to third man

India 34/1   V Kohli 9* (6b 2x4)

4.1

Bresnan to Kohli, no run, short of a length, just outside off, defended to cover

4.2

Bresnan to Kohli, 1 run, nice bounce from just short of a length, rising towards the chest, Kohli stands tall, opens the face, gets a single

4.4

Bresnan to Kohli, FOUR, Kohli charges down, and doesn't care what is bowled at him. Bresnan bowls short, gets it chest high, but Kohli still upper-cuts it over point

4.5

Bresnan to Kohli, no run, length ball, wide outside off, Kohli doesn't move his feet, but times it well still. However, he has found the cover with this one

4.6

Bresnan to Kohli, 1 run, dabbed away square of third man, but not square enough to come back for two

India 41/1   V Kohli 15* (11b 3x4)

5.1

Finn to Kohli, FOUR, Slips don't matter when you are in this form. Finn gives him a half-volley outside off, and he wristily drives it between Finn and mid-on

5.2

Finn to Kohli, no run, short of a length, just outside off, pushed to cover-point

5.3

Finn to Kohli, 1 run, short of a length, into the pads, worked away to deep square

5.6

Finn to Kohli, 1 run, short of a length, on the stumps, nicely guided to third man

India 52/1   V Kohli 21* (15b 4x4)

6.1

Swann to Kohli, 1 run, full, fast, on the pad, worked away for a single

6.3

Swann to Kohli, no run, short of a length, on of,f doesn't turn, and Kohli does well to get an inside edge onto the pad

6.4

Swann to Kohli, 1 run, down the track, right down to the pitch, works it away for one

6.6

Swann to Kohli, 1 run, full, on off, driven to long-on for one

India 58/1   V Kohli 24* (19b 4x4)

7.1

Broad to Kohli, 1 run, full, outside off, driven to sweeper-cover

7.3

Broad to Kohli, FOUR, it seemed Broad had done him in by following a backing-away Kohli, but he still manages to whip it over midwicket. One of these days, Kohli will actually mistime a shot

7.4

Broad to Kohli, no run, a massive grunt from Kohli as he misses out on a short and a wide delivery. No feet there

7.5

Broad to Kohli, 1 run, short of a length, outside off, steered away to third man

India 65/1   V Kohli 30* (23b 5x4)

8.2

Swann to Kohli, no run, sharp turn, from short of a length and just outside off. For once, Kohli is cramped, and can't get it away

8.3

Swann to Kohli, 1 run, too short, pulled away to deep midwicket

8.6

Swann to Kohli, 1 run, fullish, turning into the pads, helped away for one - just four off the over

India 70/1   V Kohli 32* (26b 5x4)

9.1

Bresnan to Kohli, FOUR, Read this two or three times to believe this. Off the front foot, he has pulled a short-of-a-length delivery into the cow corner. He didn't even go back to create the pulling length. That's a shot and a half

9.2

Bresnan to Kohli, 1 run, steers this one down to third man for one

9.4

Bresnan to Kohli, 1 run, slower full, too full, driven to long-on for one

9.6

Bresnan to Kohli, 2 runs, charges down, yorks himself, but steers it to the right of third man, and comes back for two

India 80/1   V Kohli 40* (30b 6x4)

10.2

Swann to Kohli, no run, more lovely bowling. This is the quicker one, the toppie, outside off, and beats Kohli's drive

10.3

Swann to Kohli, OUT, the pressure from Swann has finally drawn a false shot. Kohli gets too close to this delivery, and goes towards midwicket. Because he is so close to the pitch of the ball, he doesn't get the elevation, and picks out deep midwicket

V Kohli c Bairstow b Swann 40 (33m 32b 6x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

India 81/2   V Kohli 40 (32b 6x4)
