ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 2nd semi final

India v Pakistan

India won by 29 runs

46.2

Nehra to Saeed Ajmal, no run, full, hooping through the air around off stump and it's tapped sheepishly to point

46.3

Nehra to Saeed Ajmal, no run, back of a length, too quick for Ajmal and he's late on the pull. The ball goes nowhere

46.4

Nehra to Saeed Ajmal, 1 run, full again, the ball takes a thick edge as Ajmal tries to angle it down and rolls away through gully

46.6

Nehra to Saeed Ajmal, no run, high full toss outside off, Ajmal runs it down to third man but Misbah says no to the single - he's got to keep the strike if Pakistan's slim hopes are to be kept alive

Pakistan 210/9   Saeed Ajmal 1* (4b)

48.6

Patel to Saeed Ajmal, no run, Ajmal walks across to off and paddles ... but he can't beat short fine leg! If that had been a boundary ...

Pakistan 231/9   Saeed Ajmal 1* (5b)
