Match drawn
9,10,11,12,13 August 2007 (5-day match)
  India 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal KD Karthik c †Prior b Sidebottom 91 216 151 10 1 60.26
51.1 wide and short of a length, Karthik plays a loose drive with no footwork and Prior does the rest, holding a thin but audible nick. Karthik stands motionless for a second or two before slowly heading off to a standing ovation 199/3
View dismissal W Jaffer c Pietersen b Anderson 35 69 47 6 1 74.46
14.4 width outside off, short-of-a-length and that was a deliberate strategy to entice Jaffer to upper cut off the back-foot straight to Pietersen at third man 62/1
View dismissal R Dravid* b Anderson 55 131 101 8 0 54.45
48.1 full, enough late swing to beat Dravid who was falling over as he shaped to clip the ball through midwicket and played inside it 189/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c Strauss b Anderson 82 298 192 11 0 42.70
112.6 well, well, Anderson makes the breakthrough just as Tendulkar was looking set to finally reach three figures in this series...outside off stump and Tendulkar pushes at it sending a regulation catch to Strauss at first slip who gobbles it well...Tendulkar leaves to standing ovation, he might get one more innings but who knows 417/6
View dismissal SC Ganguly lbw b Collingwood 37 128 77 4 1 48.05
79.5 well, the part-time bowler has made the breakthrough. The ball again nips back at Ganguly who is taken on the pad and a loud appeal is upheld by Ian Howell...but, oh dear, the replays show a big inside edge and Ganguly is unlucky. Collingwood gets his second scalp of the series, and both have owed plenty to the umpires 276/4
View dismissal VVS Laxman c †Prior b Tremlett 51 101 79 8 0 64.55
101.2 Prior's caught it, Tremlett bowled it short of a length outside the off stump and got it to seam away from Laxman who stood on the back foot and tried to hit it through the off side, he got a thick edge on that and Prior took the easiest of catches 354/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni c Cook b Pietersen 92 120 81 9 4 113.58
130.5 doesn't work this time and he holes out to Cook at deep square. He couldn't resist standing up and trying to deliver a scoop but doesn't get enough under it, Cook taking a good catch, low 508/7
A Kumble not out 110 217 193 16 1 56.99
View dismissal Z Khan c Anderson b Panesar 11 75 52 1 0 21.15
150.3 flighted delivery outside off stump, Zaheer moves his front leg out of the way and tries to slog it down the ground, he gets a top edge that flies high in the air and straight to Anderson at mid-off who takes an easy catch 570/8
View dismissal RP Singh c & b Anderson 11 23 21 2 0 52.38
156.4 excellent reflexes from Anderson, good length delivery on off stump, RP Singh doesn't move his feet and tries to smash it past Anderson who sticks out his left hand on his follow through and clutches on to a ball that is travelling at some speed 591/9
View dismissal S Sreesanth c Vaughan b Panesar 35 49 32 6 1 109.37
169.6 down the track and swipes up towards gully where Vaughan takes a resigned catch, palms upwards. Panesar tries to give Sreesanth a stare, which doesn't work on a number of counts 664/10

  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss c Sreesanth b Khan 6 18 13 1 0 46.15
4.1 and Zaheer strikes just before stumps - Strauss pulling high off the bottom of his bat, sailing over to Sreesanth at long leg who takes a calm, collected catch 12/1
View dismissal AN Cook c Singh b Kumble 61 148 98 11 0 62.24
31.2 caught! Kumble bowls a loopy delivery that is drifting down leg side, Cook leans forward and tricks to flick, he's far too early on the shot, he's almost finished playing it before the ball reaches him, the ball hits the back of the bat and lobs up tamely to RP Singh at mid-off who takes a simple catch 119/3
View dismissal JM Anderson lbw b Singh 16 71 48 3 0 33.33
19.4 full and it straightened, Anderson caught on the back foot, a loud appeal and Howell takes an age to raise his finger but eventually - and correctly -does so and the nightwatchman departs 78/2
View dismissal MP Vaughan* c & b Kumble 11 66 36 2 0 30.55
33.3 massive wicket on the stroke of lunch, Kumble tosses up the googly on off stump, Vaughan leans forward and tries to drive, the ball stops on him a little and he hits it with the inside half of the bat back to Kumble who moves a step to his right and takes a simple catch 124/4
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Dravid b Tendulkar 41 124 107 4 0 38.31
60.1 sucker punch! Pietersen launches a swishing drive, the ball spins and a thick edge is well taken by Dravid at slip 202/5
View dismissal PD Collingwood lbw b Sreesanth 62 201 120 9 0 51.66
81.6 there's the breakthrough, Collingwood plays across the line and Ian Howell raises his finger after a short think, but it looks like a dodgy decision as the ball was heading down the leg side - although the replay shows it was just clipping leg - and Collingwood clearly wasn't happy...the end of a fighting innings, but another England batsman goes after doing the hard work 288/6
View dismissal IR Bell c †Dhoni b Khan 63 107 96 11 0 65.62
86.2 the new ball brings another wicket, a tame dismissal, short and wide from Zaheer and Bell goes for a limp cut - more a dab, really - and gets an edge through to Dhoni. Deserved reward for Zaheer, but a soft end to Bell's innings...it's amazing we've only seen one century so far in this match 303/7
View dismissal MJ Prior c Tendulkar b Sreesanth 0 38 15 0 0 0.00
89.2 Prior's shocking game continues, a regulation edge to a regulation outswinger and it's well taken low at first slip by Sachin Tendulkar and England are nearly done and dusted...that was a very painful duck 305/9
View dismissal RJ Sidebottom c & b Khan 2 4 4 0 0 50.00
86.6 he bowled for that, another short ball and Sidebottom top-edges his pull straight up and Zaheer gets underneath it for a simple catch...the innings is ending quickly 305/8

View dismissal MS Panesar lbw b Kumble 9 55 42 2 0 21.42
103.1 Panesar lunges forward, misses the ball and that looks straight ... a loud appeal and Ian Howell agrees it was hitting. Much like the one in the previous over, but no no-ball to save Monty 345/10

3.6 a much better line, Karthik forced to play, and a thick outside edge is well taken falling to his left by Paul Collingwood at second slip. His footwork was slightly lacking there 10/2
View dismissal W Jaffer lbw b Anderson 0 10 6 0 0 0.00
2.2 Jaffer steps back into his crease and shoulders arms, completely misreading the inswinger and is struck slap-bang in front of the stumps ... Ian Howell thinks ... and thinks ... and after a delay which would make Steve Bucknor look like the master of hastiness, he lifts his finger. The only thing there was height and it it did look as if it might be going over as Jaffer is a tall man and it hit him on the top of his pads ... and Hawk-Eye, for what it's worth, agrees 10/1
