ICC World Cup Warm-up Matches, 2010/11 / Wicket commentary


Southee to Tendulkar, OUT, Southee has silenced Chennai with a full slower ball on middle and off. Sachin initially throught of driving down the ground, then realised it was coming slow and looked to force it through mid on with the bottom hand. It came through too slow even for that shot. It found a way past between bat and pad and disturbed the timber. Lovely delivery.

SR Tendulkar b Southee 17 (31m 23b 3x4 0x6) SR: 73.91

India 35/1   V Sehwag 17* (22b 3x4)   TG Southee 3.3-0-20-1


Oram to Sehwag, OUT, Oram's removed Sehwag's off stump with the first ball of his spell. Good delivery, but it kept low as a befuddled Sehwag looked back after it went through under his bat. On a length on off stump and Sehwag got marginally forward and looked to guide through the off side. The ball slid under the bat and sent off stump cartwheeling. Oram's pleased with the result.

V Sehwag b Oram 23 (40m 30b 4x4 0x6) SR: 76.66

India 42/2   G Gambhir 1* (2b)   JDP Oram 0.1-0-0-1


Oram to Kohli, OUT, whoops, Kohli goes against the run of play, to a wild shot to a wide ball, it was so far wide outside off he had to reach out as he tried to smash it through cover, but some away movement and extra bounce got the edge on its way to Brendon who took a sharp catch, neat anticipation from him, Kohli has thrown it away

V Kohli c †BB McCullum b Oram 59 (79m 68b 7x4 0x6) SR: 86.76

India 148/3   G Gambhir 45* (54b 4x4)   JDP Oram 3.1-1-11-2


Southee to Gambhir, OUT, Southee gets his man this time, he has been persisting with those short deliveries, cramping him for room, GAmbhir backed away to cut it, but the extra bounce produced a thick edge that was gobbled up neatly by the keeper

G Gambhir c How b Southee 89 (141m 85b 11x4 0x6) SR: 104.70

India 216/4   MS Dhoni 22* (26b 1x4)   TG Southee 7.4-0-48-2


Mills to Raina, OUT, Raina goes now, wanted to go over wide long on with his favourite heave, but got too much underneath the full delivery for extra cover to run in and take the skier, but he has played a blinder here, more pleasant worries for Dhoni about the batting line-up

SK Raina c Taylor b Mills 50 (42m 26b 4x4 3x6) SR: 192.30

India 340/5   MS Dhoni 92* (56b 11x4 2x6)   KD Mills 9-1-66-1
