27 February 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Anderson to Sehwag, FOUR, Dropped Oh dear! Ladies and gentleman, Graeme Swann has dropped Virender Sehwag. FIrst ball. It curved away from the off-stump line, Sehwag pushed away from the body, bat well stretched out and got a thick edge. Swann lunged to his right at second slip but the ball burst off the palms. Very tough chance. Collingwood might perhaps have taken it. Or Richie Richardson


Anderson to Sehwag, no run, gets forward, gets behind the line to defend


Anderson to Sehwag, 2 runs, Almost another catch! What is happening out there? Anderson on fire. This one straightens on the leg and middle stump line, Sehwag thought it was going to drift down and shaped to flick it to square-leg. Shock. The ball straightens, flies off the leading edge and balloons over extra cover where Ian Bell dives back but it cleared him


Anderson to Sehwag, no run, Sharp lifter! Sehwag arches back, drops his wrists, gets the bat down as he sways away from the line of trouble


Anderson to Sehwag, 1 wide, sprays this wide down the leg side. Crowd roar


Anderson to Sehwag, 1 run, Whoa! Hello Hello! Sehwag is flirting with danger here. Almost another catch. Again, the outswinger on the middle and leg line, again Sehwag thinks he can push it to the leg side. Mistake. The ball curves away, catches the leading edge and pops over a leaping Anderson. Phew. What a start


Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, Tendulkar presents the full bat-face in defense here. The ball rolls back down the track.

India 8/0   JM Anderson 1-0-8-0

Anderson to Tendulkar, 2 runs, Crunchy! It was the short-of-length delivery just outside off, Tendulkar stood on his toes and punched it through extra cover. Like he has done all through his career.


Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, gets forward, behind the line of the delivery coming in with the angle and defends to the off side


Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, lovely delivery! It just about straightened outside off stump, Tendulkar almost stumbles out and pokes at it. The ball rushes past the edge. Anderson stares, Tendulkar taps the pitch


Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, on the middle and off line, it looked to come in a bit but not as much as Tendulkar anticipated; he shaped to work it towards mid-on and the ball wobbled away to the off side


Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, kicks up from short of length outside off, Tendulkar rides the bounce to push it to the off


Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, stays at his crease, crouches a little, opens the bat-face and steers the ball out to point.

India 18/0   JM Anderson 2-0-10-0

Anderson to Sehwag, 1 run, shortish delivery outside off, steered up and over, down to third man.. no slips in


Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, stifled appeal for lbw as the bowler and keeper realize there was some inside edge on it. It was very full, Tendulkar was back, perhaps in anticipation of something shorter. He wafts at it and gets a thick inside edge


Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, Curvaceous! Lovely stuff from Jimmy today. It landed on a good length just outside off and straightened. Tendulkar is beaten, pushing inside the line. No slip.


Anderson to Tendulkar, 1 run, Almost caught at short midwicket! Tendulkar whipped a full delivery but it fell short of a diving short midwicket. Anderson holds his head.


Anderson to Sehwag, FOUR, Carved! It was a short of length just outside off, I repeat just outside off but Sehwag stayed comp[completely beside the line and carved it past backward point. Great skills.


Anderson to Sehwag, 1 run, again, he opens the bat-face, stays adjacent to the line and steers this one to third man

India 28/0   JM Anderson 3-0-17-0

Anderson to Sehwag, FOUR, Whipped! It;s a short of length delivery on the middle, perhaps middle and leg, Sehwag stayed back and clipped it to deep square-leg region. Shehzad gets across in time but slips as his foot gets struck on the damp outfield and the ball rolls through his grasp.


Anderson to Sehwag, no run, pushes this to the off side


Anderson to Sehwag, 1 run, straying on the pads, flicked away to Shahzad for a single


Anderson to Tendulkar, 1 run, full in length around off, Tendulkar taps it towards mid-on and calls for a single. Sehwag responds this time. Mike Atherton remembers the Dhaka run out on air.


Anderson to Sehwag, FOUR, Flat-batted whack! The slow pitch played its part in shot selection. It rose from short of length outside off, slower, and Sehwag waited. And waited. He then decided to shelve the cut shot and go for a forehand cross court. He whacked it up and over mid-on


Anderson to Sehwag, 1 run, fuller and it has been flicked away for a single

India 44/0   JM Anderson 4-0-28-0

Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, full in length around the off stump, Tendulkar gets forward and defends. The full bat face and all that jazz


Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, just outside off stump, Tendulkar pushes it to short extra cover


Anderson to Tendulkar, FOUR, Whippy! Full and on the middle and leg and Tendulkar whipped it away through front of square.


Anderson to Tendulkar, FOUR, This is even more skillfully played. It was on the middle and there was a backward square-leg in place. Tendulkar played it late, got his wrists working overtime and glided the ball to the right of that fielder.


Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, leans across to punch this to the off side


Anderson to Tendulkar, no run, in the zone outside off, Tendulkar gets forward and across, covers the off stump and shoulders arms. He then turns and watches the ball sail through to Prior

India 54/1   JM Anderson 5-0-36-0

Anderson to Gambhir, 1 run, very full on off stump to start, dug out to mid-off


Anderson to Tendulkar, FOUR, sumptuous driving from Tendulkar, on the up and through the covers! Technically just about as perfect as you can get, and it even gets past KP's dive on the ropes


Anderson to Tendulkar, FOUR, and again, this time Anderson offers up a gift wide of off stump and is duly thrashed square of the wicket


Anderson to Tendulkar, 1 run, that's the length and the line he should be bowling, Anderson goes fuller and much straighter and this time it's just the one run


Anderson to Gambhir, FOUR, another boundary, but this time it's a lucky one! Full again, Gambhir launches into a drive and a thick inside edge flies down to fine leg past the stumps. That's his fifty too, good work


Anderson to Gambhir, no run, past the edge! The last couple of overs have all ended this way ... Anderson nibbles one away from the left-hander, who is flat-footed in the drive and easily beaten. The ball dies off the wicket though, dipping on Prior

India 179/1   JM Anderson 6-0-50-0

Anderson to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, tucked off the legs and down to fine leg, the crowd awaken as it was hit pretty well but there's a fielder down there to cut it off


Anderson to Tendulkar, 1 run, Anderson pulls the length back but this wicket is slowing up considerably and Tendulkar's got plenty of time to run it down to third man. It helps that he's seeing it like a football


Anderson to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, again off the hip, and worked down on the leg side


Anderson to Tendulkar, 1 run, is there a pattern forming here? Back of a length, down to third man. Well, I suppose he's only giving away singles so that's something


Anderson to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, that has pinged out of the middle of the bat! Anderson was trying to mix things up, perhaps aiming for the yorker, but it's slipped out as a low full toss and Yuvraj brings the bat down quickly to send the ball racing to wide long-on


Anderson to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, chopped into the covers, and an easy single to end the over

India 190/2   JM Anderson 7-0-59-0

Anderson to Tendulkar, FOUR, four runs! Anderson goes full and straight but Sachin steps across to off and whips it with great purpose past the man at short fine leg. How do you stop that? It was the right ball for the field


Anderson to Tendulkar, OUT, Tendulkar falls! He was looking to the leg side once again, but went a touch too early at the ball and a leading edge loops gently to cover. Anderson strikes, no doubt with great relief! What an innings that was for Tendulkar, he's set his team up for a massive total

SR Tendulkar c Yardy b Anderson 120 (170m 115b 10x4 5x6) SR: 104.34


Anderson to Yuvraj Singh, no run, ooh, almost a double for Anderson! Yuvraj tries to turn into the leg side, leading edge loops agonisingly short of Anderson


Anderson to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, banged in short again, doesn't look all that comfortable but still manages to whip a pull shot to fine leg


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


Anderson to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, ah, the length wasn't wrong but if you ball short, don't bowl down the leg side, Yuvraj just needed to help it on its way and it raced to the ropes

India 242/3   JM Anderson 8-0-69-1

Anderson to Pathan, 1 run, slower ball, well disguised and Pathan was half-way through his shot before the ball had arrived. In the end he adjusted well to drag it round to midwicket


Anderson to Kohli, 1 run, yorker, and it's a good one. Nowhere for Kohli to go but jab a single


Anderson to Pathan, no run, full slower ball this time, Pathan swung himself off his feet again but was through the shot too quickly


Anderson to Pathan, SIX, gets this one though! Pathan hanging back, and turns a yorker into a half-volley before smashing the life out of it, down the ground and over the rope


Anderson to Pathan, 1 run, just a single this time, much to Anderson's relief as the hack is mistimed


Anderson to Kohli, FOUR, oh dear, England already have too much to chase so this won't help. Swann as made a hash of a very simple stop at short fine leg and allowed it to run through for four. This is India's highest score in ODIs in Bangalore now

India 327/5   JM Anderson 9-0-82-1

Anderson to Chawla, 1 run, length ball around off stump, Chawla just about manages to drag it down to long-on


Anderson to Khan, 2 runs, Anderson indeed doesn't, slower ball too and some smart running means Zaheer gets a couple. Also makes this the most expensive England figures in World Cup history


Anderson to Khan, 1 run, just a single this time bunted down the ground


Anderson to Chawla, 5 no balls, oh dear oh dear. This has gone all wrong. No ball, wide outside off. Reached Prior on the bounce, burst through and ran away for four.


Anderson to Chawla, OUT, free hit ends underwhelmingly as Chawla bunts straight back to Anderson, sets off for a run that would never happen and Anderson takes the bails off

PP Chawla run out 2 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00


Anderson to Khan, OUT, India innings ends with a whimper, but there was plenty of bang for most of it. England ended up bowling India out as Zaheer tries to steal a second after pulling the ball to midwicket. And Munaf Patel has not placed the bat inside the crease during the first run. One short. And hence no runs this ball

Z Khan run out 4 (10m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

India 338/10   JM Anderson 9.5-0-91-1
