India won by 153 runs

10.1

Narine to Sehwag, SIX, and Sehwag has been expecting Mr Narine. First ball. Length ball, outside off. Sehwag opens up a bit, and nonchalantly lofts it over long-on

10.2

Narine to Sehwag, 1 run, plays this with an open face, past point for a single

10.3

Narine to Gambhir, no run, good sharp and quick offbreak, starts around leg, bites away, beats the edge outside off

10.4

Narine to Gambhir, 1 run, this starts too straight, and he works it away past square leg

10.5

Narine to Sehwag, 1 run, this is the the one that goes the other away, but it is too short, and Sehwag cuts it away for one

10.6

Narine to Gambhir, no run, another offspinner's wrong'un. Gambhir is surprised. He is shaping up to cut this, but it comes back in, and cramps him up

Narine to Gambhir, no run, offbreak again, on off, cuts it away, but can't beat the electric fence that Pollard is at point

14.3

Narine to Gambhir, FOUR, the other one, but is starts too straight, and would have been a wide had Gambhir not deflected it deftly, past short fine leg. Hundred up for the stand

14.4

Narine to Gambhir, 1 run, looks to work this to leg, from around off, gets a soft leading edge for a single into the covers

14.5

Narine to Sehwag, no run, the away spinner again, Sehwag gets a leading edge towards cover

14.6

Narine to Sehwag, SIX, Air Virender is soaring high here. Goes to his fifty with a monstrous hit over long-on. This is pitched up enough to be in his swinging arc, and swing Sehwag does, well over long-on. His first fifty of the series

India 108/0   SP Narine 3-0-23-0

28.1

Narine to Sehwag, no run, Narine's other one. Sehwag tries to sweep but is beaten. However this can't be given lbw because it hasn't straightened enough

28.2

Narine to Sehwag, 1 run, drives this one to sweeper-cover for a single

28.3

Narine to Raina, 1 run, short of a length, on the stumps, pushed down to long-off for one

28.4

Narine to Sehwag, no run, another offspinner's wrong'un, but it starts around leg and doesn't straighten enough to get him the leg-before

28.5

Narine to Sehwag, 1 wide, this is the regulation offbreak, and turns well down the leg side

28.5

Narine to Sehwag, no run, short of a length, on the pads, pushed to straight midwicket

28.6

Narine to Sehwag, FOUR, top-quality shot. Short of a length, quick, no room, and Sehwag stands there nonchalantly to guide it fine on the leg side. This is not a sweep, not a pull. Not even a scoop. More like a vertical sweep

India 217/1   SP Narine 4-0-30-0

30.1

Narine to Sehwag, 1 run, charges at him, is beaten in the flight, and mis-hits it, which is just as well because the mis-hit means it doesn't carry to long-on

30.2

Narine to Raina, 1 run, runs this offbreak behind square for a single

30.3

Narine to Sehwag, 1 wide, wide down the leg side. Starts outside leg, and keeps going

30.3

Narine to Sehwag, no run, well bowled. This one goes the other way, after it is flighted around off. Beats the edge

30.4

Narine to Sehwag, 1 run, quicker one, on the pads, worked away for a single

30.5

Narine to Raina, 1 run, worked away off the pads for a single to fine leg

30.6

Narine to Sehwag, 1 run, the away-spinner again, but Sehwag seems to be reading them now, and pushes this to sweeper-cover for one

India 231/1   SP Narine 5-0-36-0

32.1

Narine to Sehwag, FOUR, lovely shot. Sehwag is definitely picking those awayspinners, and he makes room to take this length ball from just outside off, and punches it to left of sweeper-cover

32.2

Narine to Sehwag, FOUR, one better than the other. Narine goes for the old-fashioned flight this time, and Sehwag's response is to come down the track, right down to the pitch of it, and wallop it over Narine' head

32.3

Narine to Sehwag, no run, looks to work this around the corner, but finds short fine leg

32.4

Narine to Sehwag, 1 run, fullish, around middle and leg, driven to long-off for one

32.5

Narine to Raina, 1 run, flighted outside off, pushed down past the diving straight extra cover

32.6

Narine to Sehwag, no run, turning down the leg side, Ramdin appeals for the catch. Tony Hill seems to have been bluffed. Doesn't call it a wide. Sehwag lets Ramdin know exactly what he thinks, and they have a good laugh

India 248/1   SP Narine 6-0-46-0
