ICC World Twenty20 - 10th match, Group A
India won by 90 runs
Played at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo (neutral venue)
23 September 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Finn to Dhoni, no run, full, outside off, drilled, but straight to extra cover. Excellent over from Finn

India 119/3   MS Dhoni 0* (1b)

Broad to Dhoni, no run, it's all happening. Broad beats Dhoni with the pace on a short delivery, and the ball lodges itself between his pad and his leg. Broad realises, though, that Sharma is running up, so he goes, collects the ball from its cosy resting place and tries to run Sharma out. Misses, though, and Sharma was gone by a long way had he hit. But I think the ball becomes dead as soon as it lodges itself there

India 132/3   MS Dhoni 0* (2b)

Dernbach to Dhoni, FOUR, low full toss and wide, Dhoni gets enough bat on it, and places it to the left of sweeper-cover where Wright dives valiantly and in vain


Dernbach to Dhoni, 2 runs, slower legcutter, short of a length, on off, muscled away towards midwicket where Swann misfields to allow the second


Dernbach to Dhoni, 1 run, wide of the crease, and bowls full and wide. Dhoni can't get under it, but drives it into the ground, and it bounces over Dernbach

India 142/3   MS Dhoni 7* (5b 1x4)

Bresnan to Dhoni, no run, slower ball, short of a length, cutting in, cramping Dhoni up, who has bludgeoned this into his own toe. Precious dot


Bresnan to Dhoni, 1 wide, another dot. Oh, hold on, he has called this a wide. This is full and wide, but just inside that guide line for mine. Dhoni doesn't reach it, but it has been called a wide


Bresnan to Dhoni, 2 runs, yorker, but helicoptered away, Bresnan gets a hand to it, which takes pace off it, and that facilitates the second

India 153/3   MS Dhoni 9* (7b 1x4)

Dernbach to Dhoni, 1 wide, wide - full and wide, but he has pushed it too wide


Dernbach to Dhoni, OUT, lovely tag-team work. Slower ball, Dhoni gets more height than distance, but this is still taking Butler with it over the long-on boundary. Butler catches it inches inside, knows he is going to step over with the momentum, and lobs it back in before doing so. And it turns out to be an easy catch for Hales, who has also run for the catch

MS Dhoni c Hales b Dernbach 9 (23m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

India 166/4   MS Dhoni 9 (8b 1x4)
