ICC World Twenty20 Warm-up Matches

India v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 5 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)

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

India 5/0   G Gambhir 4* (2b 1x4)   Sohail Tanvir 0.2-0-5-0

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

India 10/0   G Gambhir 9* (7b 2x4)   Umar Gul 0.1-0-4-0

2.1

Sohail Tanvir to Sehwag, FOUR, Strange. Edged and not attempted. Sehwag tries a booming drive, gets a thick edge to a length ball, but Hafeez at first slip doesn't even go for the catch even as it flies at an arm's length from him. Truth is stranger than fiction

India 16/0   V Sehwag 5* (3b 1x4)   Sohail Tanvir 1.1-0-10-0

3.2

Mohammad Sami to Sehwag, FOUR, poor delivery. Bad Sami seems to have turned up. Down the pads with fine leg up. Had Sehwag not helped it away for four this would have been a wide

India 31/0   V Sehwag 18* (9b 2x4 1x6)   Mohammad Sami 0.2-0-4-0

3.5

Mohammad Sami to Sehwag, FOUR, another gift down leg, and Sehwag accepts it with glee, glancing it between keeper and short fine leg

India 37/0   V Sehwag 22* (11b 3x4 1x6)   Mohammad Sami 0.5-0-8-0

3.6

Mohammad Sami to Sehwag, FOUR, full outswinger on off, and Sehwag drives it superbly between cover-point and cover. Opens the face a little to place it, and sends it all along the ground

India 41/0   V Sehwag 26* (12b 4x4 1x6)   Mohammad Sami 1-0-12-0

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

India 45/1   V Kohli 4* (1b 1x4)   Umar Gul 1.5-0-10-1

7.5

Shahid Afridi to Sharma, FOUR, top shot from Sharma. Slightly flat, gives him the pace to work with, and he late-cuts this from in front of off, past backward point

India 57/2   RG Sharma 9* (10b 1x4)   Shahid Afridi 0.5-0-6-0

9.4

Shahid Afridi to Kohli, FOUR, nice shot. He is down the track again, and this time he is far enough from the pitch of the ball to get the elevation as he goes over extra cover

India 73/2   V Kohli 17* (13b 2x4)   Shahid Afridi 1.4-0-16-0

10.1

Mohammad Hafeez to Kohli, FOUR, Kohli refuses to stay inside his crease. Takes this on the full, and blasts this down the ground, to the left of long-on

India 81/2   V Kohli 24* (16b 3x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 2.1-0-15-0

10.3

Mohammad Hafeez to Sharma, FOUR, poor bowling. Short, wide down the leg side, and with short fine leg in. Rohit accepts the gift for four past short fine

India 86/2   RG Sharma 18* (16b 2x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 2.3-0-20-0

12.4

Saeed Ajmal to Kohli, FOUR, down the track again, and lofts this - just a check drive really - over just to Ajmal's left, and the timing takes it past long-off despite the dive from Tanvir

India 101/2   V Kohli 36* (24b 4x4)   Saeed Ajmal 1.4-0-8-1

13.1

Shahid Afridi to Kohli, FOUR, Kohli is down the wicket again, Afridi follows him down the leg side, but Kohli still manages to powerfully loft it wide of long-on

India 106/2   V Kohli 41* (27b 5x4)   Shahid Afridi 3.1-0-30-0

13.5

Shahid Afridi to Sharma, FOUR, gets the width this time, and a lot of pace to work with, and Sharma back-cuts it past point

India 117/2   RG Sharma 32* (25b 3x4 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 3.5-0-41-0

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

India 125/2   RG Sharma 37* (29b 4x4 1x6)   Umar Gul 2.5-0-18-1

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   RG Sharma 41* (30b 5x4 1x6)   Umar Gul 3-0-22-1

15.6

Sohail Tanvir to Kohli, FOUR, Nearly takes out the bowler with this hit. Crisp, powerful, and right at Tanvir's throat. Tanvir does well to get out of the way, and Kohli brings up his fifty with this scorcher

India 143/2   V Kohli 50* (34b 6x4)   Sohail Tanvir 3-0-35-0

17.2

Mohammad Sami to Sharma, FOUR, slogs at one full ball outside off, gets a thick edge that flies over short third man. Sharma will take it

India 158/2   RG Sharma 54* (37b 6x4 2x6)   Mohammad Sami 1.2-0-17-0

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

India 182/3   V Kohli 72* (45b 7x4 2x6)   Umar Gul 3.4-0-28-1
