ICC World Twenty20 Warm-up Matches

India v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 5 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)

0.1

Sohail Tanvir to Gambhir, no run, decent start from Tanvir. Short of a length, outside off, and left alone

0.2

Sohail Tanvir to Gambhir, 1 wide, big wide down the leg side, and first signs of the Sri Lankan slowness and lowness as this rolls along the ground to Akmal

0.2

Sohail Tanvir to Gambhir, FOUR, These wickets don't seem to have changed. Gambhir has plonked the front foot down, and cover-driven this short-of-a-length delivery through cover for four

0.3

Sohail Tanvir to Gambhir, no run, fuller, outside off, driven again but can't beat cover

0.4

Sohail Tanvir to Gambhir, no run, length ball outside off, seaming in a little, pushed towards mid-off

0.5

Sohail Tanvir to Gambhir, no run, lovely bowling. Length ball, outside off, Gambhir plays for the angle, but the ball leaves him a little after pitching. Beaten comprehensively

0.6

Sohail Tanvir to Gambhir, 1 run, this one seams in, Gambhir lets it, and then pushes it wide of mid-on for one

India 6/0   G Gambhir 5* (6b 1x4)

1.1

Umar Gul to Gambhir, FOUR, and another plonk of the front foot and another drive for four. The fast bowlers are not going to like this. Short of a length, outside off, on the up, with an open face, and past cover-point

1.2

Umar Gul to Gambhir, no run, short of a length, no room, defended back to him

1.3

Umar Gul to Gambhir, no run, similar length, just outside off, and Gambhir pokes at it. Lucky not to edge it. Slight seam away from him

1.4

Umar Gul to Gambhir, 1 run, tucked away off the hip, gets a single to deep square leg

India 11/0   G Gambhir 10* (10b 2x4)

2.6

Sohail Tanvir to Gambhir, no run, length ball, angling in towards off, defended

India 27/0   G Gambhir 10* (11b 2x4)

3.4

Mohammad Sami to Gambhir, 1 leg bye, short of a length, on the pads again, and another leg-bye results

India 33/0   G Gambhir 10* (12b 2x4)

4.1

Umar Gul to Gambhir, no run, Looks to cut this but this ball holds its line just outside off, and he is cramped and beaten

4.2

Umar Gul to Gambhir, no run, gets the width now, cuts this powerfully, but Umar Akmal is alert at point

4.3

Umar Gul to Gambhir, no run, tries to make room, Gul stays straight, and Gambhir is cramped up again

4.4

Umar Gul to Gambhir, OUT, Early into the pull, and he has played on. Typical slow-wicket dismissal. Short, just outside off, Gambhir backs away to pull it, the ball doesn't quite come on, and the bottom edge canons into the stumps

G Gambhir b Umar Gul 10 (16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

India 41/1   G Gambhir 10 (16b 2x4)
