1.1

Shahzad to Sehwag, FOUR, Crowd roar! A full delivery well outside off stump, Sehwag doesn't quite move across, just leans his upper body across and drives through extra cover.

1.2

Shahzad to Sehwag, no run, short in length, moves in towards off stump, Sehwag pushes it back to the bowler

1.3

Shahzad to Sehwag, no run, in the zone outside off stump, the bowler thinks he has hit the zone, Sehwag, as ever, sees it as a width and throws his arms at it. The ball whooshes past the off stump

1.4

Shahzad to Sehwag, FOUR, No violence this time. Pure timing, It was just outside off stump, back of length, Sehwag opened the bat-face and timed it through point.

1.5

Shahzad to Sehwag, no run, moves his front foot forward and across, gets behind the line of the good-length delivery around off and pushes it to cover

1.6

Shahzad to Sehwag, no run, Good delivery. It cut in towards the middle and leg line, cramped Sehwag, who tried to dab it to the on side but was struck high on the pad.

India 16/0   A Shahzad 1-0-8-0
3.1

Shahzad to Sehwag, 1 run, flickity flick! It was a good-length delivery on the middle and leg and Sehwag flicks it up and over midwicket. A fielder at deep, placed for the short ball, cuts it off

3.2

Shahzad to Tendulkar, no run, short in length, moves in towards middle and off, Tendulkar stays back, works his wrists and sends the ball to right of short midwicket who makes a tumbling save to his right

3.3

Shahzad to Tendulkar, no run, gets forward, rolls his wrist to get over the top of this cutter and taps it to short midwicket

3.4

Shahzad to Tendulkar, no run, the bouncer arrives, on the leg stump line and Tendulkar ducks.

3.5

Shahzad to Tendulkar, 2 runs, Lands around off, kicks up towards the rib cage but Tendulkar side steps towards middle, and works the ball through backward square-leg region

3.6

Shahzad to Tendulkar, no run, slightly short in length outside off or so Tendulkar makes it appear as he gets back to punch it hard but straight to point

India 21/0   A Shahzad 2-0-11-0
5.1

Shahzad to Sehwag, 1 run, Full delivery on the middle and off, curving away a little, Sehwag fetches it from there and hits it uppishly to right of mid-on where Trott moves quickly to make a tumbling stop

5.2

Shahzad to Tendulkar, 2 runs, Now Kevin Peitersen goes tumbling down the ground. Tendulkar had whipped this full delivery on the pads to deep backward square-leg region where Kevin makes an excellent diving stop

5.3

Shahzad to Tendulkar, no run, full in length again, Tendulkar gets forward to defend it to the off

5.4

Shahzad to Tendulkar, no run, High bouncer outside off and Tendulkar was caught in two minds: Whether to sway away or play the upper cut. He first started to sway away, saw the ball was rising slowly, held his balance and tried to upper cut it over vacant slips but no wood on leather

5.5

Shahzad to Tendulkar, 2 runs, fullish delivery outside off, Tendulkar reaches across to slice it past backward point

5.6

Shahzad to Tendulkar, no run, full in length, moving in towards middle and off, like a typical Abdul Razzaq delivery, Tendulkar shapes to drive it straight but the ball rolls off the inner half of the bat to the on side

India 33/0   A Shahzad 3-0-16-0
23.1

Shahzad to Gambhir, 1 wide, oops, not a great start to the new spell, shoved down the leg side

23.1

Shahzad to Gambhir, no run, much better line here - off stump. The length is good too and catches Gambhir on the crease. The defence wasn't certain but no harm done

23.2

Shahzad to Gambhir, no run, again Shahzad aims for the top of off, sound planning that, Gambhir plays very late as usual

23.3

Shahzad to Gambhir, no run, ooh, looked like an inside edge here but the slower ball died on its way through to Prior. Gambhir trying to work a single with an angled bat

23.4

Shahzad to Gambhir, no run, dug in a bit shorter this time, no great pace off the wicket but the line, into the body, is good enough to prevent Gambhir from doing anything but defend

23.5

Shahzad to Gambhir, 1 run, decent over so far this, Gambhir tucks a single off his hip. No sign of reverse swing though

23.6

Shahzad to Tendulkar, no run, quiet over ends with Tendulkar picking out point with a cut shot

India 133/1   A Shahzad 4-0-18-0
25.1

Shahzad to Gambhir, no run, full, straight, attacking the stumps. Gambhir shapes for the straight drive but taps it straight back

25.2

Shahzad to Gambhir, 1 run, slapped down to third man, that's an easy one

25.3

Shahzad to Tendulkar, 1 run, short and rising outside off, down to third man. Is he trying to reverse it?

25.4

Shahzad to Gambhir, 1 leg bye, fuller again - that's the length to be bowling on this placid pitch. An wailing, emotive appeal as it strikes the pad but that's very optimistic indeed

25.5

Shahzad to Tendulkar, no run, Sachin makes this shot look regulation, but it'd be a cracker off the bat of any other batsman - on the up and drilled to cover point. Fielder's there to stop it though

25.6

Shahzad to Tendulkar, 1 run, deft touch! Length again, this time he waits until the very last instant and opens the face, sending it down to third man. Not quite fine enough to find the rope

India 144/1   A Shahzad 5-0-21-0
27.1

Shahzad to Tendulkar, no run, dug in pretty short, Tendulkar buckles his knees to get underneath it and briefly thinks about the upper-cut

27.2

Shahzad to Tendulkar, no run, back-of-a-length, Tendulkar is up on his toes and forcing into the covers

27.3

Shahzad to Tendulkar, FOUR, placement! Third man was very fine - perhaps moving there after Tendulkar's late cut in the last over - and as Shahzad digs another one in he's cut up and over gully and square of third man

27.4

Shahzad to Tendulkar, 2 runs, too straight, Tendulkar threads the gap at midwicket for a couple

27.5

Shahzad to Tendulkar, no run, slapped very hard indeed, but Collingwood is at backward point and tumbles to his right to cut it off

27.6

Shahzad to Tendulkar, no run, and past the edge to finish the over! Did this hit the seam, or was it the leg cutter? Either way, it's bounced a bit more than expected and also moved away from the bat. Nothing going for England though!

India 165/1   A Shahzad 6-0-27-0
42.1

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

42.2

Shahzad to Yuvraj Singh, 1 wide, goodness, this was less short than it was very, very wide down the leg side. Lucky Yuvraj missed it really

42.2

Shahzad to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, we all know it's going to be short and Yuvraj certainly does too. He sits back waiting for it and a waist-high bouncer was never going to end prettily for the bowler. Thwacked straight of the square leg for four

42.3

Shahzad to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, shortish again but this time it's pushed to cover

42.4

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

42.5

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

42.6

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   A Shahzad 7-0-42-0
44.1

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

44.2

Shahzad to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, ah, don't bowl short, don't bowl full. Maybe just don't bowl at all. Yuvraj sees one in his range, leans back and smashes this half-volley to the midwicket boundary

44.3

Shahzad to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, shorter this time, slower too, and it works as Yuvraj misses out on a leg-side hoik

44.4

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

44.5

Shahzad to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, fifty for Yuvraj! Finding his touch now. Comes down the wicket a touch before flicking a full ball very delicately, beating short fine leg to collect his eighth boundary

44.6

Shahzad to Yuvraj Singh, no run, swing and a miss! Shortish and Yuvraj tried to pull into the leg side, didn't get near it. Prior was interested but nobody else was

India 292/3   A Shahzad 8-0-53-0
