Played at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore (neutral venue)
2 March 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Dockrell to Strauss, OUT, Dockrell strikes again! Strauss out for 34 on his 34th birthday. Dockrell maintained his line, Strauss jumped outside off to try and manufacture a shovel to leg, in the end he couldn't catch up with the ball and it went straight into his stumps

AJ Strauss b Dockrell 34 (61m 37b 2x4 1x6) SR: 91.89

England 91/1   KP Pietersen 53* (44b 7x4 1x6)   GH Dockrell 1.3-0-10-1

Stirling to Pietersen, OUT, would you believe it? I guess you would have to. Ridiculous end to promising innings. Having faced two deliveries from Stirling, and played neither well, Pietersen aims a cute, reverse-dab. Manages a top edge that loops up for O'Brien to gobble behind the stumps

KP Pietersen c †NJ O'Brien b Stirling 59 (77m 50b 7x4 2x6) SR: 118.00

England 111/2   IJL Trott 14* (15b 2x4)   PR Stirling 1-0-1-1

Mooney to Bell, OUT, Bell falls! Wide on the crease, an attempted yorker turns into a full toss, Bell's clip is thoroughly middled, but Stirling at midwicket plucks a blinder low to his right!

IR Bell c Stirling b Mooney 81 (102m 86b 6x4 1x6) SR: 94.18

England 278/3   IJL Trott 85* (85b 8x4)   JF Mooney 6-0-36-1

Mooney to Trott, OUT, stand and deliver! A flat-footed smack down the ground, but instead of a six over long-off, Trott loses his off stump!

IJL Trott b Mooney 92 (126m 92b 9x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

England 288/4   PD Collingwood 2* (2b)   JF Mooney 6.3-0-36-2

Johnston to Prior, OUT, that was always coming. Prior's eye for a gap has deserted him, as he retreats to square leg in a bid to carve through the covers, but he's made too much room

MJ Prior b Johnston 6 (7m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

England 299/5   PD Collingwood 5* (6b)   DT Johnston 6-0-55-1

Mooney to Collingwood, OUT, an inconclusive performance from Collingwood. Another swipe down the ground, but it was badly sliced, and mid-on made no mistake

PD Collingwood c KJ O'Brien b Mooney 16 (21m 11b 0x4 1x6) SR: 145.45

England 312/6   TT Bresnan 1* (1b)   JF Mooney 8-0-54-3

Johnston to Yardy, OUT, good delivery, slower ball, pinpoint accuracy, Yardy loses the top of his middle stump as he climbs into a cut and misses everything

MH Yardy b Johnston 3 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 317/7   TT Bresnan 3* (4b)   DT Johnston 6.3-0-57-2

Mooney to Bresnan, OUT, swirling, spiralling, steepling slog, into the leg-side, midwicket steadies himself well, sprints in, steps back, and snaffles a tough chance to finish the innings on a high

TT Bresnan c Johnston b Mooney 4 (23m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 327/8   GP Swann 9* (5b 1x4)   JF Mooney 9-0-63-4
