20 October 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Vinay Kumar to Kieswetter, FOUR, short ball and Kieswetter hooks off the front foot, but not very well. He hits it high in the air but the ball falls well wide of Praveen at fine leg and he can't run quickly enough to stop the boundary either

England 13/1   C Kieswetter 8* (11b 1x4)   R Vinay Kumar 1.5-0-8-1

Kumar to Kieswetter, FOUR, Kieswetter pushes forward to an inswinger and gets an inside edge that evades leg slip and deep backward square and goes to the fine leg boundary

England 18/1   C Kieswetter 12* (13b 2x4)   P Kumar 2.3-0-9-0

Vinay Kumar to Trott, FOUR, shot! He makes room by moving towards leg this time, he had moved forward as well, and drives a length ball past mid-off

England 26/1   IJL Trott 6* (15b 1x4)   R Vinay Kumar 3.5-1-13-1

Yadav to Kieswetter, FOUR, too straight, easy pickings off the hips, Kieswetter dispatches the ball to long leg with a firm glance

England 52/1   C Kieswetter 35* (35b 3x4 2x6)   UT Yadav 0.4-0-9-0

Kohli to Pietersen, FOUR, that's too full on the pads, Pietersen glances to the fine leg boundary

England 59/2   KP Pietersen 5* (2b 1x4)   V Kohli 1.4-0-9-1

Yadav to Trott, FOUR, speed is all very well, but Umesh needs some work on direction and length. This one is short and Trott short-arm pulls it into the gap on the square leg boundary

England 65/2   IJL Trott 17* (29b 2x4)   UT Yadav 2-0-16-0

Kohli to Trott, FOUR, shorter ball and Trott pulls it into the gap on the deep midwicket boundary, Rahane dives valiantly to pull it back but then watches the ball go towards the rope, he tries to get up but slips

England 70/2   IJL Trott 21* (30b 3x4)   V Kohli 2.2-0-14-1

Kohli to Trott, FOUR, short ball outside off stump, Trott waits for it and cuts it into the gap at backward point and places it wide of third man

England 76/2   IJL Trott 26* (32b 4x4)   V Kohli 2.5-0-20-1

Ashwin to Pietersen, FOUR, Pietersen prods forward at an offbreak and gets a thick outside edge that runs fine to the third-man boundary

England 82/2   KP Pietersen 13* (11b 2x4)   R Ashwin 0.3-0-6-0

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

England 87/2   KP Pietersen 18* (15b 3x4)   P Kumar 5.3-0-23-0

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

England 91/2   KP Pietersen 22* (17b 4x4)   P Kumar 5.5-0-27-0

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

England 101/2   KP Pietersen 29* (23b 5x4)   P Kumar 6.1-0-31-0

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

England 105/2   KP Pietersen 33* (24b 6x4)   P Kumar 6.2-0-35-0

Jadeja to Trott, FOUR, reverse sweep! Trott connects with the innovated shot, sending the ball bouncing down to third man

England 130/2   IJL Trott 41* (53b 5x4)   RA Jadeja 2.4-0-13-0

Jadeja to Pietersen, FOUR, four more! Pietersen rushes to a 48-ball half-century with a slashed cut to deep backward point. Expensive over

England 135/2   KP Pietersen 51* (48b 7x4)   RA Jadeja 3-0-18-0

Yadav to Pietersen, FOUR, an odd shot, but an effective one! Yadav pitched short on off stump and Pietersen rocked back to pull, but ended up flat-batting the ball in the air to wide long on. Four runs!

England 143/2   KP Pietersen 56* (52b 8x4)   UT Yadav 2.2-0-21-0

Yadav to Pietersen, FOUR, and another, this time off the front foot! Yadav targeted the stumps but couldn't find the right length and was picked away to long leg with a powerful glance

England 147/2   KP Pietersen 60* (53b 9x4)   UT Yadav 2.3-0-25-0

Jadeja to Bopara, FOUR, edged, wide of slip! Bopara went back to cut but the ball turned and bounced to take a thick edge that flew very quickly past a leaping Parthiv at slip. A really tough chance

England 158/3   RS Bopara 4* (4b 1x4)   RA Jadeja 3.5-0-22-1

Yadav to Bopara, FOUR, ah, but the follow-up is not good! Yadav tries to send down the yorker, one presumes, but it's another full toss and this time he's punished, the glance flying down to fine leg

England 177/3   RS Bopara 15* (17b 2x4)   UT Yadav 6.4-0-39-0

Vinay Kumar to Bopara, FOUR, short ball, rubbish length when fine leg is in the circle, pulled past the fielder to the long-leg boundary

England 185/3   RS Bopara 20* (26b 3x4)   R Vinay Kumar 5.4-1-25-1

Vinay Kumar to Trott, FOUR, lucky boundary! Trott steps out of his crease and backs away towards leg to make room, Vinay follows him with a short of a length ball and cramps him. Trott pulls to see what he can get, the top-edge flies over the wicketkeeper

England 190/3   IJL Trott 63* (86b 6x4)   R Vinay Kumar 6-1-30-1

Ashwin to Trott, FOUR, shot! Trott steps out, gets to the pitch and lofts the ball back over the bowler's head to end the batting Powerplay with a boundary

England 207/4   IJL Trott 72* (93b 7x4)   R Ashwin 10-0-45-0

Yadav to Patel, FOUR, short ball, far too short from Yadav, and Samit sits on the back foot and hoists it into the gap between deep midwicket and long-on. He had space to free his arms

England 211/4   SR Patel 9* (7b 1x4)   UT Yadav 7.1-0-43-0

Vinay Kumar to Patel, FOUR, short ball on leg stump, Samit flicks the ball in the air off his hips wide of the fielder at fine leg

Vinay Kumar to Patel, FOUR, short ball and Samit pulls it into the gap on the deep midwicket boundary, Rahane dives and just manages to save it. Oops, his boot was on the boundary as he made contact so that's four after all

England 229/4   SR Patel 22* (15b 3x4)   R Vinay Kumar 6.4-1-39-1

Yadav to Trott, FOUR, length ball around off, Trott makes room and drives the ball flat and in the air over the leaping Raina at cover

England 240/4   IJL Trott 84* (104b 8x4)   UT Yadav 8.1-0-51-0

Yadav to Patel, FOUR, the yorker gone wrong, it's a friendly full toss on the pads, Samit puts it away to the long leg boundary with a flick

England 245/4   SR Patel 30* (21b 4x4)   UT Yadav 8.3-0-56-0

Yadav to Patel, FOUR, slower ball that's a bit short and Samit swings for the stands, he makes contact too and sends the ball towards deep midwicket, it hits the rope on the full so that's six. Odd, Bowden asked the third umpire and then signalled four

England 279/4   SR Patel 55* (39b 5x4 1x6)   UT Yadav 9.5-0-67-0

Yadav to Patel, FOUR, well that is certainly four, it's nearly a yorker but Samit manages to edge it through his legs and past Dhoni

England 283/4   SR Patel 59* (40b 6x4 1x6)   UT Yadav 10-0-71-0

Vinay Kumar to Patel, FOUR, slower ball outside off, Samit came out of his crease, made room and lofted the ball into the gap between long-off and sweeper
