Pakistan in India ODI Series - 3rd ODI

India v Pakistan

India won by 10 runs

4.3

Mohammad Irfan to Rahane, OUT, caught behind! Irfan strikes with a full delivery outside off, Rahane comes forward to drive it towards cover but the angle on the ball takes it across the batsman, it takes a faint edge to the keeper. Important strike by Irfan and Rahane loses another opportunity to impress

AM Rahane c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Irfan 4 (22m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

India 19/1   G Gambhir 13* (16b 1x4)   Mohammad Irfan 2.3-0-11-1

8.4

Mohammad Irfan to Gambhir, OUT, caught at point! Gambhir has given his wicket away playing a nothing shot. It was short. It was wide and instead of hitting it hard, he just guides it to the hands of point. He probably wanted to play that towards third-man, but the ball came a little slower and that messed up with his shot completely. Looked very bad.

G Gambhir c Umar Akmal b Mohammad Irfan 15 (43m 27b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

India 29/2   V Kohli 7* (14b 1x4)   Mohammad Irfan 4.4-1-17-2

9.3

Junaid Khan to Kohli, OUT, caught at second slip! the procession continues. Length ball, pitches on middle and goes across Kohli, who closes the face of the bat without either going forward or back, the ball takes an outside edge and flies low down to Younis at second-slip who completes a comfortable catch. India in deep mess again

V Kohli c Younis Khan b Junaid Khan 7 (25m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.17

India 37/3   Yuvraj Singh 8* (2b 2x4)   Junaid Khan 4.3-0-10-1

15.5

Mohammad Hafeez to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, and another one goes down, to a spinner this time. It was a flat and quick delivery, pitches on middle and off, and turns slightly. Yuvraj was on the back foot, trying to play it towards the on side but closed the face of the bat. The ball went past the outside edge to peg the off stick back. Yuvraj was completely squared up by that one

Yuvraj Singh b Mohammad Hafeez 23 (40m 23b 4x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

India 63/4   SK Raina 7* (18b 1x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 0.5-0-2-1

28.4

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, OUT, follows the quicker one with a tossed up delivery on the middle stump, Raina thrusts his pad out towards the off and plays outside the line, the ball hits him on the front pad and the umpire raises his finger. Raina falls after a useful stand of 48 with Dhoni

SK Raina lbw b Saeed Ajmal 31 (81m 60b 2x4 1x6) SR: 51.66

India 111/5   MS Dhoni 21* (35b 2x6)   Saeed Ajmal 3.4-0-6-1

28.5

Saeed Ajmal to Ashwin, OUT, first baller for Ashwin! The wheels are coming off. It was flatter, quicker and it spins in to Ashwin. The batsman stayed on the crease as he tried to play that to the leg side, gets hit on the back pad in front of off. Ajmal on a roll again.

R Ashwin lbw b Saeed Ajmal 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 111/6   MS Dhoni 21* (35b 2x6)   Saeed Ajmal 3.5-0-6-2

34.4

Umar Gul to Dhoni, OUT, caught at point! short and not much room, Dhoni goes for the aerial cut but it goes straight to the hands of Umar Akmal at point. Dhoni falls for the first time in this series and that wicket could be the difference between a 200-run total to a 150 one now.

MS Dhoni c Umar Akmal b Umar Gul 36 (77m 55b 1x4 3x6) SR: 65.45

India 131/7   RA Jadeja 4* (15b)   Umar Gul 5.4-1-36-1

37.5

Saeed Ajmal to Kumar, OUT, that was the doosra! It pitched on the middle and leg and was expecting it to turn it down leg, but it straightened and hit him on the front pad as Bhuvi was looking to turn it to square leg.

B Kumar lbw b Saeed Ajmal 2 (13m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

India 141/8   RA Jadeja 7* (24b)   Saeed Ajmal 6.5-1-11-3

41.6

Saeed Ajmal to Sharma, OUT, Ishant drives it straight back to the bowler! It was a tame shot and Ajmal got his right hand to it, fumbled but caught it on the second try. It's Ajmal's fourth

I Sharma c & b Saeed Ajmal 5 (21m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

India 160/9   RA Jadeja 20* (34b 1x6)   Saeed Ajmal 9-1-18-4

43.4

Saeed Ajmal to Jadeja, OUT, caught at long-on! Ajmal completes five as Jadeja tries to send this one out of the ground, only manages to get it as far as long-on. A comforatble catch by Umar Akmal and Ajmal is pumped after that wicket.

RA Jadeja c Umar Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 27 (71m 39b 0x4 2x6) SR: 69.23

India 167/10   Mohammed Shami 0* (5b)   Saeed Ajmal 9.4-1-24-5
