ICC World Twenty20 Warm-up Matches

India v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 5 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)

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

1.5

Umar Gul to Sehwag, no run, length ball, middle and leg, pushed to the right of Gul, who does well to not allow them the single

1.6

Umar Gul to Sehwag, 1 run, length ball, into the pads, worked away for a single

India 12/0   Umar Gul 1-0-6-0

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

4.5

Umar Gul to Kohli, FOUR, and what form this man is in. Length ball, middle and leg, nothing horribly wrong with it, and Kohli has caressed it past midwicket

4.6

Umar Gul to Kohli, no run, short of a length, no room, Kohli stands tall to defend

India 45/1   Umar Gul 2-0-10-1

14.1

Umar Gul to Kohli, 1 run, worked away into the leg side for one

14.2

Umar Gul to Sharma, no run, bouncer, over the shoulder, and Sharma fails to make contact as he looks to hook. Called one for the over

14.3

Umar Gul to Sharma, 1 run, short of a length, no room, but they drop and run even as the ball hardly goes off the pitch

14.4

Umar Gul to Kohli, 1 no ball, slower bouncer, Kohli is down the wicket, well outside the crease, but the umpires have seen enough to call it the second bouncer of the over

14.4

Umar Gul to Kohli, 1 run, makes room to drive this full ball, the misfield by Ajmal at mid-off allows them a single

14.5

Umar Gul to Sharma, FOUR, Sharma makes room too, and even though this is short of a length, he lofts it over mid-off for four

14.6

Umar Gul to Sharma, FOUR, short, into the pads, and Sharma doesn't refuse the gift. Pulls it over square leg for four

India 129/2   Umar Gul 3-0-22-1

19.1

Umar Gul to Kohli, 1 run, near yorker outside off, driven to sweeper-cover for one

19.2

Umar Gul to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, yorker, Yuvraj goes deep into the crease to work this to leg

19.3

Umar Gul to Kohli, no run, well bowled. Yorker outside off with a strong off-side field, and Kohli is beaten as he looks to steer it

19.4

Umar Gul to Kohli, FOUR, misses the length on the wide yorker by a few inches, and Kohli goes after it. Steers this wide of point, and gets four with third man being fine

19.5

Umar Gul to Kohli, 2 runs, inches short of a yorker, on the stumps, worked away wide of midwicket for two

19.6

Umar Gul to Kohli, 1 run, full and wide, driven to sweeper-cover for one
