ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 11th match, Group B

India v England

Match tied


Collingwood to Tendulkar, SIX, the ball was straight, but the bat much straighter. Tendulkar with one, simple movement has lifted this over the bowler's head and straight into the advertising boards. First six of the match, made to look indecently easy

India 103/1   SR Tendulkar 38* (52b 3x4 1x6)   PD Collingwood 0.4-0-7-0


Collingwood to Tendulkar, SIX, Tendulkar likes the look of Collingwood and brings his fifty up in style! Down the track, clears his front leg and eases his big bat through the line, sending it a long way over the midwicket rope

India 124/1   SR Tendulkar 51* (66b 3x4 2x6)   PD Collingwood 2.3-0-18-0


Swann to Tendulkar, SIX, That. Is. Enormous. Karthik, you called it, Sachin goes after Swann's very first ball, over wide long-on with immense power

India 150/1   SR Tendulkar 65* (77b 3x4 3x6)   GP Swann 4.1-0-32-0


Swann to Tendulkar, SIX, and again! Slog sweep this time, but it's equally big, the ball landing deep in the crowd at midwicket. This stadium is absolutely heaving with noise now

India 156/1   SR Tendulkar 71* (78b 3x4 4x6)   GP Swann 4.2-0-38-0


Swann to Tendulkar, SIX, Tendulkar's fifth six! He clears the left leg and murders this over long-on. Flat and hard!

India 217/2   SR Tendulkar 109* (107b 8x4 5x6)   GP Swann 8.4-1-57-1


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

India 300/3   MS Dhoni 30* (23b 3x4 1x6)   MH Yardy 9.3-0-59-0


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

India 322/5   YK Pathan 13* (6b 1x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 8.4-0-77-1
