ICC World Twenty20 Warm-up Matches

India v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 5 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)

All is in readiness then. Gambhir takes first strike. Sohail Tanvir to bowl. Just the one slip

The umpires come out in bright purple shirts that will force you to wear shades as you watch, even on TV. Fittingly, Billy Bowden is one of the first to try them on. Sehwag and Gambhir follow them, and they are not wearing purple, but their "superstitious blue" that they won the 50-over World Cup in. Pakistan fielders are already out on the field

MS Dhoni has just said that the teams have been flexible and have picked 12 men each, of course with only 11 to bat and only 11 to field at a given time. However, the official scorers say this is an 11-play-11 match. Waiting to find out who is correct. Five minutes to first ball

1.50pm Only 10 minutes to go to the start, and the wicket looks even and hard with nothing to suggest there will be extraordinary turn available. However, you can't count the two unorthodox offspinners these sides feature: Saeed Ajmal and R Ashwin

1.40pm India have left out Chawla, Tiwary, Dinda and Harbhajan. And Pakistan have left out Razzaq, Shafiq, Hasan, Arafat

India have won the toss and have chosen to bat. Still 25 minutes to go to the start. Will get team news in as soon as I get it

1.25pm The World Twenty20 starts tomorrow, but here is a little appetiser thrown in by the ICC: a warm-up game between India and Pakistan. And it is due to start at 2pm. So hello and welcome. We will have the toss and team details in soon enough

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

End of over 1 (6 runs) India 6/0
G Gambhir    5* (6b 1x4)      Sohail Tanvir    1-0-6-0
V Sehwag    0* (0b)     

Umar Gul to share the new ball

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

Sehwag to face for the first time

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

End of over 2 (6 runs) India 12/0
V Sehwag    1* (2b)      Umar Gul    1-0-6-0
G Gambhir    10* (10b 2x4)      Sohail Tanvir    1-0-6-0

So the confirmation is in: teams can nominate 12 players

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

2.2

Sohail Tanvir to Sehwag, 1 wide, wide down the leg side now

2.2

Sohail Tanvir to Sehwag, 2 runs, plants the front foot down, and flicks this short-of-a-length ball through midwicket

2.3

Sohail Tanvir to Sehwag, 1 wide, wide down the leg side again

"Great to see Sami back for Pakistan. Always fun: could go very well, or very badly, but unlikely to be just "OK"." James, who doesn't like quicks who bowl just fast and straight, and don't bother about slower balls? Anyway, Tanvir goes round the stumps...

2.3

Sohail Tanvir to Sehwag, no run, .. and gets good bounce immediately. This leaves him a little too, against the angle. Beaten

2.4

Sohail Tanvir to Sehwag, SIX, too short, and too wide, and Sehwag has upper-cut it over the shorter point boundary for a six. 58 metres is the boundary on that side of the ground

2.5

Sohail Tanvir to Sehwag, 1 run, short of a length, angling in, worked away into the leg side

Back over the wicket

2.6

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

End of over 3 (15 runs) India 27/0
G Gambhir    10* (11b 2x4)      Sohail Tanvir    2-0-21-0
V Sehwag    14* (7b 1x4 1x6)      Umar Gul    1-0-6-0

Here is Mohammad Sami

3.1

Mohammad Sami to Sehwag, no run, short of a length, on off, played to point

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

Slip is out now

3.3

Mohammad Sami to Sehwag, 1 leg bye, gets away with another leg-sdie gift, as Sehwag fails to make contact, and gets just a leg-bye

3.4

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

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

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

End of over 4 (14 runs) India 41/0
V Sehwag    26* (12b 4x4 1x6)      Mohammad Sami    1-0-12-0
G Gambhir    10* (12b 2x4)      Sohail Tanvir    2-0-21-0

Gul gets a change of ends. No slip

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

Virat Kohli is the new man in

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

End of over 5 (4 runs) India 45/1
V Kohli    4* (2b 1x4)      Umar Gul    2-0-10-1
V Sehwag    26* (12b 4x4 1x6)      Mohammad Sami    1-0-12-0

Saeed Ajmal to bowl inside the Powerplay

5.1

Saeed Ajmal to Sehwag, no run, This is not Sami's day. Not so far. Sehwag, as is his wont, lofts the first ball of spin he faces, and takes long-on on. Sami settles under it, but he has to stretch over the rope to try to catch it. And he seems to have touched the rope as he catches it and then throws it back in to keep it in play. Replays are inconclusive, but bizarrely this has been signalled as four. Beats me. Stumps me. It has to be either six or dot. How is it four? Apologies umpires. It has been corrected now that it was indeed a dot. How so typical of Sehwag to not even take a single off this?

5.2

Saeed Ajmal to Sehwag, OUT, and Sehwag is gone. Looks to cut a flat delivery from in front of the stumps, fails to keep it down, and Afridi takes a sharp catch to his right

V Sehwag c Shahid Afridi b Saeed Ajmal 26 (14b 4x4 1x6) SR: 185.71

"I can't understand the wisdom of sending in Kohli who's in the form of his life ahead of Yuvraj, a guy desperately in need of match practice against quality bowling. Isn't that the point of warm up games?" Strong point, Cris
