ICC Cricket World Cup - 2nd semi final
India won by 29 runs
30 March 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Nehra to Wahab Riaz, no run, past the outside edge! Suddenly Nehra's found a bit more zip off the wicket, that could well be his fastest ball of the evening


Nehra to Wahab Riaz, no run, Riaz thrusts the bat out, looking for a single to gully, but backward point cuts it off


Nehra to Wahab Riaz, 1 run, just short of a good length, Riaz paddle-pulls out to Tendulkar at deep midwicket


Nehra to Wahab Riaz, FOUR, Riaz finds the boundary! Unorthodox but effective. He backs away to leg, Nehra follows him and he's cramped for room but gets a good connection on a bottom-handed swipe that races to wide long-on


Nehra to Wahab Riaz, 1 wide, speared down the leg side by Nehra, that's a wide


Nehra to Wahab Riaz, 1 run, cutter from Nehra, and it's a good one! The ball grips and turns from leg to off, taking the leading edge of Riaz's bat and rolling into the covers

Pakistan 192/7   Wahab Riaz 6* (5b 1x4)

Harbhajan Singh to Wahab Riaz, 1 run, Harbhajan comes round the wicket and misdirects one fast and flat down the leg side ... but Riaz gets bat on it, so it's just a single to short fine leg. That could well have been five wides


Harbhajan Singh to Wahab Riaz, no run, nudged to midwicket, Misbah charges out loooking for a single and Wahab sends him back just in time!


Harbhajan Singh to Wahab Riaz, no run, hmm, Harbhajan is lucky to get away with this one. It was really speared flat again, but well wide of off. Riaz slashes and doesn't connect, and that could've been called wide. Borderline


Harbhajan Singh to Wahab Riaz, 1 run, Riaz runs one down to short third man, and they steal a quick single

Pakistan 199/7   Wahab Riaz 8* (9b 1x4)

Nehra to Wahab Riaz, no run, a very full delivery outside off bursts past the outside edge as Riaz tries to drive


Nehra to Wahab Riaz, no run, what is it with the left-arm quicks today? Riaz takes his cue from the Zaheer/Nehra school of batting, backing away to be beaten flailing outside off


Nehra to Wahab Riaz, no run, bouncer! Again Riaz was making room, Nehra followed him with the bouncer and he was forced to duck


Nehra to Wahab Riaz, no run, another dot ball! Riaz clears the left leg, Nehra hurls down a low, dipping full toss wide of off and it slips past the bat


Nehra to Wahab Riaz, OUT, there's another one! Full and straight, Riaz swings mightily across the line but all he can do is send the ball straight up in the air, an easy catch for Tendulkar at cover. India are just two wickets away from a World Cup final. Pakistan are still alive, but only just. The pressure really told on Riaz there, all those dot balls made him feel as though he absolutely had to hit the boundary

Wahab Riaz c Tendulkar b Nehra 8 (16m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Pakistan 199/8   Wahab Riaz 8 (14b 1x4)
