View dismissal AJ Strauss lbw b Pathan 7 12 11 1 0 63.63
2.5 first blood and that's a beauty! good length delivery, pitched on middle and off and this one straightened after hitting the deck, Strauss is utterly and completely foxed, plays down the wrong line and is trapped plumb in front 10/1
View dismissal MJ Prior c †Dhoni b Sreesanth 14 26 13 2 0 107.69
5.2 Sreesanth too joins the party! good length delivery, pitched in the channel of uncertainty and shaping away late, Prior pushes forward to defend and ends up with a thin edge, Dhoni makes no mistake, umpire Koertzen was unmoved but Prior walks! 27/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Yuvraj Singh b Harbhajan Singh 77 110 82 6 2 93.90
28.3 Harbhajan strikes! tossed up and turning in, Pietersen gets forward looking to slog it away and for once things go wrong, ball clips the top edge and balloons up towards backward square leg, Yuvraj at square leg nice hustles under it - what a breakthrough! 153/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood c & b Yuvraj Singh 36 68 48 4 0 75.00
21.2 stunning catch! good length delivery on the middle and leg stump line, turning across the right-hander, Collingwood - looking to work it away on the leg side closes the face of the bat bit too early and the ball pops up off the leading edge, Yuvraj drives well forward and takes it inches away from ground - amazing one handed effort! 117/3
View dismissal A Flintoff* c Dravid b Yuvraj Singh 12 31 21 1 0 57.14
29.4 gone! slightly shot and bit wide outside the off stump, Flintoff fetches it from wide outside the off stump and the idea was to force it past the fielder at midwicket but the ball clips the toe end of the ball and goes low in the air towards short midwicket, Dravid there dives well forward and takes a fantastic catch. 155/5
View dismissal VS Solanki b Powar 12 21 20 2 0 60.00
33.6 tossed up delivery, Powar hits the rough outside the off stump and the ball rips back in, Solanki pushes forward to defend but gets nowhere, ball turns in and crashes into the woodwork - another one bites the dust! 172/6
View dismissal GO Jones run out (Pathan/Agarkar) 49 82 66 3 0 74.24
48.4 Pathan to Anderson, all over! played away towards midwicket, Strauss running for Jones takes off for a quick single but Anderson stands his gorund and that leaves Strauss stranded in the middle, throw comes in at the bowler's end and Pathan flicks the bails, England all out with 1.2 overs to spare! 237/10
View dismissal ID Blackwell c & b Sehwag 6 27 13 0 0 46.15
40.1 seven down! well flighted delivery on the middle and leg stump line, bit too full and Blackwell ends up driving it straight back to Sehwag, it doesn't get easier that this, Spinners on a roll here! 197/7
View dismissal GJ Batty lbw b Sehwag 2 6 6 0 0 33.33
42.2 tossed up and turning in, Batty pushes forward to defend and gets hit on the pad, impact was touch outside the line of the off stump, loud appeal and under pressure umpire Hariharan rules in favour of the bowler, Batty bit unlucky there 203/8
View dismissal MJ Hoggard run out (Agarkar) 7 17 12 0 0 58.33
47.3 Agarkar to Jones, slower delivery, Jones defends it down on the off side, 'yes' 'no' calls - Agarkar moves in quickly and scores a direct hit at the bowler's end, Hoggard grounds his bat and they take a couple on the overthrow, a late enquiry and the umpire goes upstairs - RED light flashes, Hoggard was just short of his crease! 231/9

View dismissal V Sehwag c Solanki b Blackwell 26 47 33 4 0 78.78
10.4 gone!! just short of good length this time, Sehwag rocks back and pulls it away to deep midwicket, the ball comes off the middle of the bat and looked headed into the stands, but on that occasion Sehwag didnt get as much elevation, it was more height and less distance, Solanki runs to his right and takes a good catch. That's a big wicket for England! Blackwell strikes immediately 54/1
View dismissal R Dravid* c Hoggard b Flintoff 65 109 73 9 0 89.04

View dismissal IK Pathan st †Prior b Blackwell 46 78 56 6 1 82.14
27.4 another victim of the PowerPlay syndrome! nothing delivery outside the off stump, Pathan comes down the track and swings widely, misses the target, Prior quickly whips of the bails and that's the end of that. Rush of tomato juice and he plays dearly 152/3
View dismissal M Kaif c Anderson b Flintoff 5 23 13 0 0 38.46
28.3 this is getting interesting! slower delivery outside the off stump, Kaif picks it up and flays it away in the air towards cover, Anderson there times his jump to perfection and plucks it out of thin air - Kaif's horrible run in ODIs continue, India four down and in a spot of bother here 152/4
