View dismissal RV Uthappa c †Kieswetter b Bresnan 1 6 3 0 0 33.33
1.2 76.9 mph, Uthappa's comeback lasts three balls! He walks out of his crease like he usually does but the length is shorter outside off stump than Uthappa would have liked. He ends up poking at the ball as it seams away and edges it towards first slip, Kieswetter intercepts with another outstanding dive 5/2
View dismissal AM Rahane c †Kieswetter b Finn 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
0.4 87.0 mph, caught behind! Rahane plays a big drive to a good length ball just outside off stump, he gets a thick edge that flies quickly to Kieswetter's right. The keeper dives acrobatically and grabs it with one hand. It was first slip's catch! Kieswetter took it in the webbing of his right glove. Stunned silence in the three-quarter empty Eden Gardens. 1/1
View dismissal V Kohli c Hales b Bresnan 15 21 16 3 0 93.75
5.2 74.6 mph, caught splendidly on the wide long-on boundary! Hales is the catcher. The beauty of that catch was in the amount of ground Hales had to cover by running to his left from deep midwicket. He got there in time and took it on the run on the edge of the boundary. Kohli had latched on to a short, slower ball and pulled it high over deep midwicket. He thought he had hit it into the gap, but Hales was too quick 26/3
View dismissal SK Raina c Bairstow b Finn 39 47 29 4 2 134.48
11.5 75.6 mph, caught at point! The ball was short and had width, the undoing of Raina was that it was slower as well. He cut it hard but couldn't get it over Bairstow at point 74/5
View dismissal MK Tiwary b Patel 15 22 17 0 0 88.23
10.4 53.9 mph, bowled him! Tiwary was struggling for timing and release on this pitch. He went down on one knee, moved his front foot out of the way, and attempted a huge slog across the line. He missed a flat and straight ball, which hit off stump 66/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† run out (Dernbach) 21 44 26 0 1 80.76
19.6 from Dernbach, he's out! Finally. A yorker to end the over and Dhoni can't make proper contact, playing it back to the bowler. Dhoni runs anyway and has no chance as Dernbach fields on his follow through, turns around and runs back to the stumps to run out Dhoni 120/9
View dismissal RA Jadeja b Finn 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
11.6 88.0 mph, bowled him! England on f i r e. Jadeja tries to late cut a ball from too close to off stump and gets a bottom edge that clips off stump. Finn will be on a hat-trick in his next over 74/6
View dismissal YK Pathan b Bopara 10 17 12 1 0 83.33
16.3 77.9 mph, the sucker ball! Bopara follows two very, very slow balls outside off with a sharp one that swings so much into the right-hander. Yusuf is caught on the crease as he plays across the line and hears the ball uproot off stump 91/7
View dismissal P Kumar b Bopara 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
16.5 80.0 mph, the stumps have been shattered, smashed. Bopara is swinging this ball massively into the right-hander and is too good for Praveen's aimless slog across the line. Off and middle stump have been splayed. 91/8

View dismissal AD Hales c Rahane b Pathan 11 24 19 0 0 57.89
6.6 50.6 mph, there goes another one! Hales had struggled against this plethora of spinners, and now he's out, chipping into the deep on the leg side. Rahane was the man at deep midwicket, and he ran in quickly, sliding forward to take the catch 40/2
View dismissal C Kieswetter c Tiwary b Jadeja 12 12 10 2 0 120.00
3.2 55.0 mph, Kieswetter holes out! He charged down the track but couldn't quite get to the pitch of the delivery, slicing across the line and scooping a swirling chance out into the deep. Massive cheers erupt around Eden Gardens! 21/1
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Raina 53 42 39 5 3 135.89
15.5 57.9 mph, he's given him! Pietersen swivelled into a reverse sweep but missed the ball and was struck on the pad. Raina was bowling round the wicket, however, and this looked to have pitched outside leg. But he's got to go, and to his credit he does so without complaining. Is there still hope for India? 106/4
View dismissal SR Patel c Tiwary b Kohli 21 25 25 1 1 84.00
14.4 64.7 mph, Patel falls! He tried to slog this over midwicket but sliced underneath the ball, and Tiwary found himself under an easy chance at cover. Is there a twist in this tale? 100/3
