Dernbach to Gambhir, FOUR, that's a bit of rubbish. Short, gentle pace, pitched outside leg, and it bounces just waist high. Gambhir pulls it away between square leg and midwicket

India 10/0   G Gambhir 6* (5b 1x4)   JW Dernbach 0.3-0-4-0

Dernbach to Gambhir, FOUR, that's a nice shot. Length ball, outside off, Gambhir follows it, opens the face, and times it superbly, placing it to the right of point and left of third man

India 14/0   G Gambhir 10* (6b 2x4)   JW Dernbach 0.4-0-8-0

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

India 23/0   IK Pathan 8* (7b 1x4)   ST Finn 1.3-0-12-0

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)   ST Finn 2-0-17-1

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

India 33/1   V Kohli 8* (3b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 0.2-0-5-0

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

India 40/1   V Kohli 14* (9b 3x4)   TT Bresnan 0.4-0-6-0

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

India 45/1   V Kohli 19* (12b 4x4)   ST Finn 2.1-0-21-1

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

India 50/1   G Gambhir 17* (12b 3x4)   ST Finn 2.4-0-26-1

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

India 64/1   V Kohli 29* (21b 5x4)   SCJ Broad 1.3-0-12-0

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

India 74/1   V Kohli 36* (27b 6x4)   TT Bresnan 1.1-0-11-0

Dernbach to Sharma, FOUR, pulled off the front foot, short at 135ks, and he gets it over midwicket even though the weight is coming forward all the time

India 90/2   RG Sharma 6* (5b 1x4)   JW Dernbach 1.5-0-16-0

Broad to Gambhir, FOUR, short of a length, outside of,f driven powerfully on the up, to the left of Fin n at sweeper-cover, who dives all over it

India 101/2   G Gambhir 34* (29b 4x4)   SCJ Broad 2.1-0-18-0

Bresnan to Gambhir, FOUR, length ball on the pads with fine leg really square. Gambhir plays it fine, and gets four for it

India 110/2   G Gambhir 41* (33b 5x4)   TT Bresnan 2.1-0-21-0

Broad to Sharma, FOUR, nice shot. Broad bowls the bouncer, following the backing-away Sharma, and he just opens the face to dink it over the keeper's head. Hold on, he closed his eyes as he played it

India 125/3   RG Sharma 24* (19b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 3.2-0-29-0

Broad to Sharma, FOUR, poor bowling. He has just brought the fine leg up, and he has bowled a short ball down leg side. Easily puled over that man

India 129/3   RG Sharma 28* (20b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 3.3-0-33-0

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

India 139/3   MS Dhoni 4* (3b 1x4)   JW Dernbach 2.3-0-24-0

Bresnan to Sharma, FOUR, wide full toss, would have been another wide had Sharma not edged it away for four fine of third man

India 149/3   RG Sharma 41* (27b 4x4)   TT Bresnan 3.2-0-31-0

Dernbach to Sharma, FOUR, slower ball, dipping on him, turning out to be a low full toss, and he has swept it between square leg and short fine leg. Sharma has reached fifty off 31. That will do him a world of good

India 164/3   RG Sharma 52* (31b 5x4 1x6)   JW Dernbach 3.2-0-39-0
