37.2

Shahid Afridi to Raina, no run, straight and flat, Raina defends

37.3

Shahid Afridi to Raina, no run, that looked like an offspinner, pitching outside leg and turning in towards the pad

37.4

Shahid Afridi to Raina, no run, Raina attempts a little glance to short fine leg, but the fielder runs round in good time to stop the single

37.5

Shahid Afridi to Raina, 1 run, Raina sweeps out to deep square leg to get off the mark

India 189/5   SK Raina 1* (4b)
38.1

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, 2 runs, chipped in the air to wide long-on

38.2

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, 1 run, a slightly wild swipe across the line from Raina, the ball was a little short but not short enough for that shot. Just the single as the ball rolls out to midwicket. The odd one is definitely keeping low for the spinners

38.4

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, no run, Raina plays very deep in the crease to get Ajmal excited, but lays bat on ball

38.5

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, 1 run, full on off stump, pushed into the covers for one

India 194/5   SK Raina 5* (8b)
39.2

Shahid Afridi to Raina, 2 runs, this has been a confident start from Raina, and now he picks the half volley and whips it out to deep midwicket for two more

39.3

Shahid Afridi to Raina, no run, Raina is down on bended knee to drive, but he picks out the man at cover

39.4

Shahid Afridi to Raina, 1 run, again this looked like the offspinner rather than the wrong 'un, turning across the left-hander as he flicks square

India 199/5   SK Raina 8* (11b)
40.2

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, 1 run, Raina gets back and across and glances to Afridi's right at short fine leg

40.4

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, no run, defended off the back foot

40.5

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, no run, Raina stretches forward to defend another good ball, Ajmal staying round the wicket to him

40.6

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, no run, tapped gently into the covers to end the over

India 203/5   SK Raina 9* (15b)
41.3

Wahab Riaz to Raina, 1 run, back of a length and rising, Raina gets across to off and glances off the hip

India 205/5   SK Raina 10* (16b)
42.1

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, no run, Ajmal stays round the wicket to Raina, who stretches forward to defend

42.2

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, 1 run, flicked to short fine leg for a single

42.5

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, no run, tapped into the covers

42.6

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, no run, confusion in the running! Raina chops to point, both batsmen set off, stop, look at each other, run again and the stop mid-pitch ... Raina turns and is back just in time! The is nervous stuff

India 207/6   SK Raina 11* (20b)
43.4

Wahab Riaz to Raina, no run, edged and dropping short of Kamran! This one kept low, touched the edge and dropped a metre in front of the keeper ... who is perhaps a little deep with the ball keeping low fairly often now

43.5

Wahab Riaz to Raina, 1 run, Riaz attacks the stumps, with a hint of shape through the air, but Raina meets the ball with the full face of the blade to send it down to long-on

India 213/6   SK Raina 12* (22b)
44.1

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, 1 run, Ajmal comes round the wicket, firing one flat at the toes and Raina flicks to midwicket ... he wants two, but just the single

44.5

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, no run, good ball! Arrowed in very full outside off, a great yorker and it slips right under Raina's bat. Too wide to be of danger to the stumps, but it's a dot ball

44.6

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, 1 run, Raina skips down the wicket to take the ball on the full and whips out to deep midwicket

India 221/6   SK Raina 14* (25b)
45.1

Umar Gul to Raina, FOUR, lifted majestically down the ground! Dead straight, powerfully hit. It was a length ball from Gul, and Raina got nicely underneath it

45.2

Umar Gul to Raina, 1 wide, this time he aims for the yorker, but it slips down the leg side. A hint of wobble through the air, that delivery would be dangerous if he could get it on target

45.2

Umar Gul to Raina, no run, full toss this time, and Raina is taken a little by surprise, driving back to the bowler. Gul hasn't been quite at his best today, but a low full toss is at least better than a length ball at this stage

45.3

Umar Gul to Raina, FOUR, hmm, or maybe not! Another full toss from Gul but this time it's dished up wide of off. Raina drives, picking the gap in the field to pick up four

45.4

Umar Gul to Raina, 1 run, a better ball, but the damage has already been done in this over. With the field set back on the off side, Raina eases a very full ball to long-off for one

India 231/6   SK Raina 23* (29b 2x4)
46.1

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, no run, good stuff from Ajmal, spearing in the arm ball to cramp Raina for room. He taps back down the wicket, and Ajmal runs across to deny the single

46.2

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, 1 run, a touch too full, Raina steps forward and drives to long-on

46.6

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, 1 run, Ajmal comes round the wicket, zoning in on leg stumps and Raina flicks off the pads to keep strike

India 238/7   SK Raina 25* (32b 2x4)
47.1

Wahab Riaz to Raina, 1 leg bye, ... and immediately validates the decision with a superb, swinging yorker! Raina manages to get something in the way of the ball, and they sprint through for a leg bye

India 239/7   SK Raina 25* (33b 2x4)
48.1

Umar Gul to Raina, 1 run, swinging yorker, right on the toes! Raina gets an inside edge on it, and that looks to be heading for the fine leg boundary ... but no! Riaz dives at short fine to cut it off

48.3

Umar Gul to Raina, 1 run, full toss again, but it's low. Raina attempts to heave it down the ground, but the ball hits the toe of the bat, making a weak, woody sound, and falls well short of the man at long-on

48.5

Umar Gul to Raina, 2 runs, yet another full toss, Raina drives along the ground to wide long-off ... they take on the fielder's arm, Umar Akmal it is out there, and they're back for the second!

48.6

Umar Gul to Raina, FOUR, shot! Raina walks across to off stump, and picks a half-volley up and over fine leg ... the fielder is inside the circle there, and once it was past him it was four

India 256/7   SK Raina 33* (37b 3x4)
49.4

Wahab Riaz to Raina, 1 run, full, fast and swinging! Raina jams down on it to send the ball to long-on
