Anderson to Dhoni, 1 run, banged in short again from Anderson, doesn't dare go full. Dhoni drags a single to deep square

India 238/3   MS Dhoni 1* (1b)

Yardy to Dhoni, FOUR, Yardy is spearing it in, but too short and sits up asking for trouble. Dhoni flashes his hands through it and it's raced to point boundary


Yardy to Dhoni, no run, ooh, much, much quicker and the angle was perfect, heading to leg stump. Dhoni got into a tangle and missed it


Yardy to Dhoni, no run, little bit short again and Yardy is lucky to get away with this as Dhoni bangs it to point fielder


Yardy to Dhoni, no run, again Dhoni has picked out the infielder. Small mercy for England


Yardy to Dhoni, 1 run, very quick again from the bowler, no room to work with either and Dhoni just about manages to push down the ground

India 247/3   MS Dhoni 6* (6b 1x4)

Bresnan to Dhoni, 1 run, shoved in short as usual, good delivery because the line is right and Dhoni bobbles a single off a flurry of bat and arm


Bresnan to Dhoni, 1 run, no pace on the ball and Dhoni is flashing his arms at it to try and generate some, only earns a single though


Bresnan to Dhoni, no run, short again, slower again, and it's worked well again. Dhoni desperately trying to hold back on his pull shot before mistiming to mid-on

India 251/3   MS Dhoni 8* (9b 1x4)

Yardy to Dhoni, 1 run, again Yardy hurls it down very straight and Dhoni can only pick off a single around the corner


Yardy to Dhoni, 1 run, bottom-handed whip from Dhoni, just for a single though. No air on the ball, plenty of pace though

India 256/3   MS Dhoni 10* (11b 1x4)

Shahzad to Dhoni, 1 run, good start from Shahzad, back of a length. Dhoni, with his new bat seems to force with the bottom hand through cover, which only he could do really


Shahzad to Dhoni, FOUR, short to Dhoni this time, he was waiting for it too and after mistiming a couple he's nailed this. Almost hacking himself off his feet as he swung this to the rope


Shahzad to Dhoni, FOUR, England bleeding again. Too short, too wide and Dhoni smashes his arms and wrists through the line, pinging it to the cover boundary


Shahzad to Dhoni, no run, light relief for England as Dhoni pushes down the ground for an easy single that Yuvraj, for no good reason, rejects

India 277/3   MS Dhoni 19* (15b 3x4)

Yardy to Dhoni, no run, "yes Mickey!" shouts a relieved Prior as Dhoni mistimes it back to the bowler


Yardy to Dhoni, no run, again there is no room, no air and no spin, Dhoni tries to force it past the bowler but can't beat him


Yardy to Dhoni, 1 run, cut away, but only for a single. What a good job Yardy is doing here


Yardy to Dhoni, 1 run, excellent over ends with Dhoni collecting a single down the ground. Huge relief for Strauss to have some respite at one end

India 281/3   MS Dhoni 21* (19b 3x4)

Shahzad to Dhoni, 1 run, much better, full and straight and singles are a relief for England as Dhoni squeezes this out to long-off


Shahzad to Dhoni, 1 run, that's better, no room for Dhoni to work with and he forces a drive to cover, who is hanging back on the ring, understandably

India 288/3   MS Dhoni 23* (21b 3x4)

Yardy to Dhoni, 1 run, ooh, look out Billy Bowden! Dhoni absolutely mullered this back down the pitch, Yardy shoved a hand out to get something on it and Billy dived out the way just in time


Yardy to Dhoni, SIX, wow, that has gone a long, long way. It's 12. Touch short and Dhoni rocked back to hack this into the stands at midwicket. Stadium heaving now, England tottering


Yardy to Dhoni, 1 run, again he thwacks hard against the line, just a single though

India 301/3   MS Dhoni 31* (24b 3x4 1x6)

Bresnan to Dhoni, OUT, Dhoni falls now! Two in two for England. Shortish ball that Dhoni swung hard at but straight to Luke Wright at deep midwicket.
