23,24,25,26 November 2012 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150

Anderson to Gambhir, OUT, Anderson strikes. Humid conditions, there is swing here, and Anderson cashes in. Length ball, swinging in, pitches on leg, holds its line. Gambhir plays across the line. Misses it. Hit in front of leg. Given

G Gambhir lbw b Anderson 4 (1m 2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

India 4/1   V Sehwag 0* (0b)   JM Anderson 0.2-0-4-1

Panesar to Sehwag, OUT, Monty strikes. Full, fired into the pads, Sehwag perhaps is looking to work it through that new gap created on the on. Misses it completely, the ball hits the pad, and then the off stumps. Monty is pumped. The crowd is somehow cheering the wicket. This is bizarre. But then again, who is the next man in?

V Sehwag b Panesar 30 (73m 43b 4x4 0x6) SR: 69.76

India 52/2   CA Pujara 17* (53b 1x4)   MS Panesar 5.1-1-17-1

Panesar to Tendulkar, OUT, Monty you beauty. What a ripper. Hits top of off after pitching leg. Can't ask for better from a left-arm spinner, especially when he is doing it at a pece that doesn't let you recover after being beaten in the flight. Tendulkar is forward but the ball is not full enough. It pitches leg, and turns away, Tendulkar can't cover the turn, and Tendulkar is bowled. Again. What joy for England. Pure ecstasy for Monty. What expressive face. Swann can't stop laughing either

SR Tendulkar b Panesar 8 (14m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

India 60/3   CA Pujara 17* (57b 1x4)   MS Panesar 6.5-1-24-2

Panesar to Kohli, OUT, gone! Panesar breaks through again. Loose from Kohli. Hint of width outside off, his eyes light up at the chance of a drive but he doesn't keep the shot down and Compton takes a good catch diving to his right at cover

V Kohli c Compton b Panesar 19 (65m 55b 3x4 0x6) SR: 34.54

India 118/4   CA Pujara 56* (122b 5x4)   MS Panesar 16.5-2-48-3

Swann to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, and another! Swann gets Yuvraj straight away. The ball doesn't turn, slides on past the edge, Yuvraj hasn't got a very big stride forward and his off stump gets struck.

Yuvraj Singh b Swann 0 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 119/5   CA Pujara 57* (127b 5x4)   GP Swann 8-3-18-1

Panesar to Dhoni, OUT, four for Monty! More turn and bounce. This climbs on Dhoni as he pushes forward, takes the shoulder bat and loops towards gully where Swann manages to get his fingers under the ball. But we are going to the third umpire to make sure. Replays look pretty good, fingers under the ball from all the angles we are seeing and, eventually, it's confirmed as out

MS Dhoni c Swann b Panesar 29 (86m 64b 4x4 0x6) SR: 45.31

India 169/6   CA Pujara 77* (191b 6x4)   MS Panesar 24.2-5-66-4

Panesar to Ashwin, OUT, Monty gets five. This is a smart dismissal that he built up to through some smart bowling and variations. Over the last 10 balls, he has troubled Ashwin with everything: loopy offbreaks, quick flat offbreaks, and the full straight one. Now he slips in the arm ball, decidedly quicker, and hits him pad first as Ashwin looks to cut. Plumb, in front of off. A good innings come to an end

R Ashwin lbw b Panesar 68 (140m 114b 9x4 0x6) SR: 59.64

India 280/7   CA Pujara 120* (301b 11x4)   MS Panesar 38.4-9-93-5

Swann to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, Harbhajan moves across, Swann bowls a smart flat and quick offbreak that doesn't turn much. Pitches outside off, hits him just in front of off. Aleem Dar thinks about it, is satisfied that Harbhajan hasn't got outside the line, and then raises his finger. No. 200 for Swann

Harbhajan Singh lbw b Swann 21 (46m 35b 2x4 1x6) SR: 60.00

India 315/8   CA Pujara 134* (344b 12x4)   GP Swann 32.4-6-70-2

Swann to Pujara, OUT, Pujara is finally done in. And Swann has done it with a wide flighted delivery. And this is one of the rare times when Pujara has been beaten in the flight after leaving the crease. Swann tosses it up wide, the ball doesn't turn - the natural variation from the pitch - and it beats the outside edge. Prior does well to stump him. Out for the first time in the series. That's 382 runs between dismissals. He has batted for 16 hours and 55 minutes, I am being told

CA Pujara st †Prior b Swann 135 (451m 350b 12x4 0x6) SR: 38.57

India 316/9   Z Khan 0* (7b)   GP Swann 33.5-6-70-3

Swann to Khan, OUT, Dar takes a long time to give this, and he has got it wrong by a long way. Appeal for bat-pad with the ball turning in sharply. Nowhere near the bat, hits the pad, then the chest, and off to short leg

Z Khan c Bairstow b Swann 11 (19m 11b 1x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

India 327/10   PP Ojha 0* (4b)   GP Swann 34.1-7-70-4
