1.1

Rubel Hossain to Tendulkar, no run, a mix-up, Tendulkar dabbed the ball on the leg side and didn't really want the single. Sehwag set off and then turned around rather slowly. The fielder at midwicket missed the stumps at the non-striker's end

1.2

Rubel Hossain to Tendulkar, FOUR, short of a length on middle and leg, Tendulkar jumps back and works the ball off his hips behind square. The fielder at fine leg can't run across to his left in time to save the boundary

1.3

Rubel Hossain to Tendulkar, no run, punched off the front foot towards the bowler

1.4

Rubel Hossain to Tendulkar, 1 wide, full but the line is down leg side, Tendulkar attempts to glance but it's too far down

1.4

Rubel Hossain to Tendulkar, 1 run, good length delivery angling into Tendulkar who dabs the ball towards midwicket and sets off

1.5

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, FOUR, Sehwag backs away to a short of a length ball and plays a short-arm swat back past the bowler. That ball raced between the bowler and the stumps

1.6

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, 2 runs, leg-stump line and Sehwag flicks the ball off his hips towards deep square leg

India 24/0   Rubel Hossain 1-0-12-0

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, 1 leg bye, Sehwag tries a Kapil Dev-style Nataraja shot, hit high on the pads by that delivery, ball rolls towards square leg

3.2

Rubel Hossain to Tendulkar, 1 run, on the pads once more, Tendulkar picks up a single by tucking the ball down to deep square

3.3

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, 1 run, not the best line again from Rubel, keeps pinging the legstump line, helped down to backward square again

3.4

Rubel Hossain to Tendulkar, no run, this is a better line, on middle and off, a shortish ball that Tendulkar stands tall to defend down the pitch

3.5

Rubel Hossain to Tendulkar, no run, a grunt from Rubel as he delivers that one, the extra effort doesn't translate into much, that ball actually kept low, didn't trouble Tendulkar though, who pushes it back down the pitch

3.6

Rubel Hossain to Tendulkar, 1 run, a single to end the over, a poke to the right of cover gives the Indians time to scamper a run

India 36/0   Rubel Hossain 2-0-15-0
5.1

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, 1 wide, a bouncer first up from Rubel, nice idea but that was way over Sehwag's head

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, 1 run, this time it's on middle and off, Sehwag whips that one towards deep backward square leg for a single

5.5

Rubel Hossain to Tendulkar, 1 run, nicely done by Sachin, a length ball outside off, gets a big stride in and punches it to the left of mid-on, sets off for the run immediately and it is easily completed

5.6

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, 1 run, a tight single is pinched, on middle stump, Sehwag stays beside the line and taps it crisply to mid-off, closer to the fielder than the previous delivery, Sehwag had to put the skates on to ensure he made his ground

7.5

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, no run, another low bouncer, if you can call it that, from Rubel, it is short but doesn't get much higher than the chest, Sehwag is happy to bend under that again

9.4

Rubel Hossain to Tendulkar, 1 run, short ball from Rubel, comes on slowly to Tendulkar, who jumps and tucks the ball behind square leg for a single, similar delivery to the ones with which Rubel ended the previous over, Sehwag had opted to ducked under those

9.5

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, no run, Rubel digs in the bouncer again, Sehwag is happy to bend under under, that one was a loopy delivery, bounced a second time well before it reached the keeper

9.6

India 60/0   Rubel Hossain 5-0-28-0
33.1

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, no run, this one rolls along, how many bounces on the way to the keeper? I counted at least two. Sehwag looked for the backfoot square drive. It went well below the bat though

33.2

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, 1 run, back of a length and coming into the body, Sehwag can't time the pull and is a little late on the shot. Single to mid on

33.3

Rubel Hossain to Kohli, 2 runs, on Kohli's pads as it tails in, he gets his front pad across and clips behind square for a couple. Superb running, convincing a reluctant Sehwag for the second.

33.4

Rubel Hossain to Kohli, no run, ooh, words exchanged! I don't think there is much difference between Bangla and Hindi when it comes to swearing. Back of a length and it keeps low outside off as Kohli looks to force it through covers. Rubel fields and says something. Kohli responds with interest.

33.5

Rubel Hossain to Kohli, 1 run, this time Kohli gets the single, he taps to the leg side and gives it to mid on

33.6

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, 1 run, Sehwag carves a short ball outside off with fierce power, but there is sweeper cover in place. Drinks being taken now.

India 224/2   Rubel Hossain 6-0-33-0

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, no run, a loud grunt from Rubel as he bowls that short one, pulled towards wide long-on by Sehwag

35.4

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, 1 bye, a better bouncer this time, middle stump line, Sehwag thinks of playing the pull initially, before he pulls out of the stroke and leaves the ball to the keeper by weaving out of the way of that delivery

35.5

Rubel Hossain to Kohli, 1 run, Kohli is mastering the inside-edge here, another attempted forceful shot through the off sneaks towards backward square leg

35.6

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, no run, a slow short ball to end the over, a much better one for Bangladesh, Sehwag waited for ages for that to arrive as he attempted a paddle-pull, bottom-edges it onto his pad, he's not sure where the ball is and starts setting off for a single, the notices the ball is only a few yards off the stumps and gets back in the crease

India 245/2   Rubel Hossain 7-0-35-0

37.2

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, 1 run, no footwork from Sehwag as he swings that one towards midwicket

37.3

Rubel Hossain to Kohli, 1 run, Kohli, the man in form shows why it was the right move to pick him ahead of Raina, by making his half-century, pushing the ball towards midwicket to get to the milestone off 46 deliveries

37.4

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, 1 run, Sehwag tries an outrageous shot, pulling a delivery that is way outside off, gets it towards backward square leg where Shafiul does some comic fielding, stopping the ball and then not knowing where it is to start running off in pursuit again, before realising the ball is behind him

37.5

Rubel Hossain to Kohli, no run, a painful blow for Kohli, who looks to pull and gets a bottom-edge to be hit where it hurts the most

46.2

Rubel Hossain to Kohli, FOUR, CLASS, what a shot from Kohli, a low full toss and Kohli eases it between the bowler and mid-off, hardly seems like the innings of a man playing his first World Cup innings, stunning timing on that

46.3

Rubel Hossain to Kohli, 1 run, a slower ball outside off, Kohli opens the face to try guide the ball towards third man, doesn't get it far enough to beat the keeper, Mushfiqur dives to stop it, and makes a painful stop as the ball ricochets of his keeping gloves onto his face

46.4

46.6

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, FOUR, a low full toss outside off, thanks a lot says Sehwag as he crunches it towards long-off, for a while I thought a fielder will be waiting to gobble that up but Sehwag had unerringly found the gap all day today

India 354/2   Rubel Hossain 9-0-53-0
