0.1

Kumar to Cook, no run, Praveen starts around leg and middle and swings it across Cook who stays in his crease and defends on the off side, was squared up a bit by the movement

0.2

Kumar to Cook, no run, 122kph, good length with movement across Cook, who stays in his crease and blocks

0.3

Kumar to Cook, 2 runs, too straight from Praveen and Cook gets going with a firm clip off his pads towards backward square leg

0.4

Kumar to Cook, no run, good length outside off with more movement away from Cook, who takes a stride forward and shoulders arms

0.5

Kumar to Cook, no run, good length on middle and off, Cook stays in his crease and punches to mid-off. The pace off the pitch seems rather slow. Or is that just because Praveen is bowling?

0.6

Kumar to Cook, no run, defended on the off side once again

England 2/0   P Kumar 1-0-2-0
2.1

Kumar to Kieswetter, 1 run, short of a length delivery and Kieswetter was well out of his crease when he pushed it towards wide mid on, Rahane intercepted from midwicket with a dive, sprang up and threw hard at the stumps at the bowler's end. He missed and Raina dived to his left to prevent overthrows

Kumar to Kieswetter, no run, this time he gets hit on the pad as he walks forward and across to play the ball from off and middle on the leg side, Praveen appeals but Kieswetter was very far down the pitch

2.6

Kumar to Kieswetter, no run, the length is shorter this time and Kieswetter gets hit high on the thigh as he plays off the back foot. Well back foot, but after walking out. He's trying to bat like Pietersen does

England 8/0   P Kumar 2-0-5-0
4.1

Kumar to Trott, no run, good length outside off stump, defended towards cover on the front foot

4.2

Kumar to Trott, 1 leg bye, Praveen swings a good length ball sharply into Trott who tries to whip off his pads after moving forward and across, he misses and gets hit on the pad. Praveen appeals for lbw but that was missing leg stump

6.1

Kumar to Kieswetter, no run, huge appeal for caught behind as Praveen swings the ball into the right-hander and finds the gap between bat and pad. It hit Kieswetter's thigh pad. Dhoni went up immediately, Praveen a little later

6.2

Kumar to Kieswetter, 1 run, flicked off the front foot in front of square

8.1

Kumar to Kieswetter, no run, short and wide outside off, Kieswetter can't put it away, hitting the ball too early to cover

8.2

Kumar to Kieswetter, no run, Kieswetter moves forward again, well forward and then plays a good length ball towards point. The dots mount.

8.3

Kumar to Kieswetter, 1 wide, that's much too wide down leg side

8.3

Kumar to Kieswetter, no run, a good length ball swings into the right-hander, he defends on the front foot

8.4

Kumar to Kieswetter, no run, once again he steps out from his stance outside the crease and defends on the off side

8.5

Kumar to Kieswetter, no run, that's a Keegan Meth! Kieswetter makes room, comes forward, and slaps the ball hard at the bowler, Praveen stuck his left hand out and stopped it. Can't really call that a caught and bowled chance

8.6

Kumar to Kieswetter, SIX, there she goes! Kieswetter charges, Praveen drops a bit too short and Kieswetter has the space to swing freely and launch the ball into the sparsely-populated stands beyond deep midwicket

England 33/1   P Kumar 5-0-19-0
16.1

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, just short of a driveable length, KP standing tall and punching to mid off

16.2

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, deceptive stuff from Praveen. He looks so innucuous, yet always gets the ball to do a little more than expected. This was a slow legcutter that was defended back down the track

16.3

Kumar to Pietersen, FOUR, shot! There wasn't a great deal wrong with the delivery - perhaps just a hint of width - but Pietersen's power and placement through cover was spot on

16.4

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, an offcutter this time, Praveen straightening his line and drawing KP's defence again

16.5

Kumar to Pietersen, FOUR, four more! Again too much width is offered on this benign pitch, and Pietersen sends the ball screaming to the cover boundary with a firm slap

16.6

Kumar to Pietersen, no run, Praveen ends a mixed bag of an over with another straighter delivery that is met with watchful defence

England 91/2   P Kumar 6-0-27-0
18.1

Kumar to Pietersen, FOUR, KP's assault on Praveen continues! The batsman brings up England's 100 with a dismissive pull over midwicket. Like swatting a fly

18.2

Kumar to Pietersen, FOUR, and another! Pietersen is looking in ominous touch. Driven on the up through cover, and with the field restrictions that's four

18.3

Kumar to Pietersen, 1 run, fuller, straighter, but there's a single to be had close on the leg side

18.4

Kumar to Trott, no run, pitched up by Praveen, Trott getting in line with off stump to defend

18.5

Kumar to Trott, 1 run, glanced off the pad and out to long leg ... they might've pushed for the second, but settle for the single

18.6

Kumar to Pietersen, 1 run, KP keeps strike with a shuffle and a flick to fine leg

England 108/2   P Kumar 7-0-38-0
38.1

Kumar to Bopara, OUT, bowled him! Middle stump has been uprooted. Praveen returns to the attack and delivers a swinging yorker on off stump, Bopara tries to dig it out but ends up playing on

RS Bopara b Kumar 24 (34m 32b 3x4 0x6) SR: 75.00
