23 September 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Finn to Gambhir, 1 run, short of a length, on middle and leg, seaming away a touch, edged away past second slip. And Finn has fallen over in his follow through. Hope he doesn't kick the stumps


Finn to Pathan, no run, short of a length, pitched outside leg, 144ks, beats him for the pace, hits him on the thigh


Finn to Pathan, 2 runs, this is dug in short, and Pathan has pulled this well, all along the ground, rolling the wrists on it, wide of deep square


Finn to Pathan, 1 leg bye, appeal for lbw, but with this ball hitting middle and leg and not swinging, it had to pitch outside leg. Aleem Dar thinks the same


Finn to Gambhir, 1 wide, posthumous swing there. Short of a length, just outside leg, and swings away big time after passing Gambhir's hip. Kieswetter does well to collect it with a dive


Finn to Gambhir, 1 run, dug in short again, Gambhir is in the air to try to work it away, is hit on the thigh, and Pathan calls him through for a leg-bye, even though the ball has gone about six feet from the stumps


Finn to Pathan, no run, huge lbw shout. This is bowled really full, and Pathan is playing across the line. However, Dar again thinks it is pitched outside leg

India 6/0   ST Finn 1-0-5-0

Finn to Pathan, 1 wide, bouncer, 144ks, too high, and called a wide


Finn to Pathan, 1 run, pulled this time, in front of square, and mistimed too, but Pathan gets a single to mid-on


Finn to Gambhir, 1 run, short of a length, outside off, dabbed away for a single


Finn to Pathan, FOUR, nice upper-cut. Finn bowls short again, provides him width, and Pathan gets under it, and sends it over point. Are England getting carried away with the short ball? This is not England, mind you


Finn to Pathan, 1 wide, slower ball gone horribly wrong, a big wide down leg side


Finn to Pathan, OUT, Finn has made the necessary correction. Bowls full and hits timber. Slightly fuller than a length ball, on off, holding its line slightly, Pathan has driven all around it, and he and his off stump have gone for a walk. That certainly seems back a little to hold its line against the angle

IK Pathan b Finn 8 (14m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00


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


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   ST Finn 2-0-17-1

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


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


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


Finn to Gambhir, FOUR, Gambhir gets into the act now. Dances down the wicket, and makes room too before crashing this shortish delivery between cover and cover-point


Finn to Gambhir, 1 run, dabs this one past point for a single


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

India 52/1   ST Finn 3-0-28-1

Finn to Sharma, 2 runs, Sharma opens up the front leg and lofts this absolutely straight. He hasn't timed it, but the straightness of the shot means it doesn't land in a fielder's lap


Finn to Sharma, 1 run, slower ball, pushed to long-on for one


Finn to Gambhir, no run, lovely bouncer, 137ks, really sharp, between the shoulder and the head, and rising as it reached Kieswetter, who makes a one-handed overhead take


Finn to Gambhir, 2 runs, slower ball, Gambhir mis-hits the slog, and it lands safe between three men - midwicket, long-on and deep square


Finn to Gambhir, OUT, Finn has got his man. Gambhir has had a patchy innings, and finally one goes to hand. It;s the slower offcutter again, Gambhir looks to make room and go over extra cover, but all he manages is a healthy edge.The ball, though, is dying on Kieswetter, who dives forward to complete the catch

G Gambhir c †Kieswetter b Finn 45 (70m 38b 5x4 0x6) SR: 118.42


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

India 119/3   ST Finn 4-0-33-2
