ICC Cricket World Cup - 11th match, Group B

India v England

Match tied

7.5

Bresnan to Sehwag, OUT, Bresnan takes out Sehwag, with a little bit of help from Prior. It was a back of length delivery outside off, it came pretty slowly off the track, Sehwag thought ok then, I see some width, let me steer it through the vacant slips. Mistake. The ball wobbled off the face of the bat to right of Matt Prior who dived to take a good one-handed catch. Sehwag tucks the bat under his arm and walks off. The crowd... you know what they would have done, don't you...

V Sehwag c †Prior b Bresnan 35 (34m 26b 6x4 0x6) SR: 134.61

India 46/1   SR Tendulkar 10* (21b)   TT Bresnan 0.5-0-2-1

29.4

Swann to Gambhir, OUT, gone! Against the run of play Swann has got the breakthrough. It was a good ball, biting into the pitch and spinning past what was another very lazy nurdle from Gambhir. It looked like he was trying to get it down to third man, but the feet went nowhere. Poor shot, and it's got England back into the game

G Gambhir b Swann 51 (95m 61b 5x4 0x6) SR: 83.60

India 180/2   SR Tendulkar 88* (91b 6x4 4x6)   GP Swann 5.4-0-42-1

38.2

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

India 236/3   Yuvraj Singh 22* (28b 3x4)   JM Anderson 7.2-0-63-1

45.6

Yardy to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, and gone. Stadium goes quiet for a moment, just a moment. Short and Yuvraj just got it off the bottom of the bat out to deep midwicket where Bell held a simple catch. No great celebration from England, hardly surprising really. Good work from Yuvraj and crucially for India as the tournament goes on, he's found his form

Yuvraj Singh c Bell b Yardy 58 (76m 50b 9x4 0x6) SR: 116.00

India 305/4   MS Dhoni 31* (24b 3x4 1x6)   MH Yardy 10-0-64-1

46.1

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.

MS Dhoni c sub (LJ Wright) b Bresnan 31 (38m 25b 3x4 1x6) SR: 124.00

India 305/5   YK Pathan 0* (0b)   TT Bresnan 8.1-1-37-2

48.1

Bresnan to Pathan, OUT, Swann gets this one right, Pathan again swinging wildly but the slower ball meant he mistimed it and it looped out to mid-off

YK Pathan c Swann b Bresnan 14 (12m 8b 1x4 1x6) SR: 175.00

India 327/6   V Kohli 8* (4b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 9.1-1-46-3

48.2

Bresnan to Kohli, OUT, and another! Bresnan getting good reward for being England's best bowler. Yorker length, Kohli gives himself room, too much room in fact and it thuds into the base of off stump. Here comes Zaheer

V Kohli b Bresnan 8 (12m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 160.00

India 327/7   Harbhajan Singh 0* (0b)   TT Bresnan 9.2-1-46-4

48.4

Bresnan to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, Three in four for Bresnan to give him his 5th wicket! Full, swinging in late and striking Harbhajan on the back boot right in front of the stumps. Harbhajan reviewed but it was still very out. That's also Bresnan's career-best ODI figures. England finishing well, just the first 46 overs that cost them

Harbhajan Singh lbw b Bresnan 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 328/8   Z Khan 1* (1b)   TT Bresnan 9.4-1-47-5

49.4

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

India 338/9   Z Khan 4* (4b)   JM Anderson 9.4-0-91-1

49.5

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   MM Patel 0* (0b)   JM Anderson 9.5-0-91-1
