22 January 2017 - day/night match (50-over match)
  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JJ Roy b Jadeja 65 84 56 10 1 116.07
19.4 58.7 mph, does him again! The trajectory. It's all about the trajectory. This is flat, so Roy goes back, making room to cut. But the length is full. And as such the moment he chooses the shot he chooses, he is a sitting duck. The ball pitches, hurries off the pitch and crashes into middle and leg. Good innings from Roy, but a familiar end. Goes off muttering to himself. Once again he gets set and gets out 110/2
View dismissal SW Billings c Bumrah b Jadeja 35 76 58 5 0 60.34
17.2 57.9 mph, he's reverse swept straight to the only man anywhere in the vicinity. The shot is perhaps on because it is a fuller delivery and there is plenty of room and Billings is excellent with this shot. This time though he can't get enough power into the shot. And Bumrah, on the edge of the circle at short third man, leaps up and takes it reverse-cup over his head. Jadeja, without looking especially threatening, strikes 98/1
View dismissal JM Bairstow c Jadeja b Pandya 56 99 64 5 1 87.50
41.3 85.1 mph, he's cut it straight to backward point, and Jadeja diving forward collects it gleefully. Pandya's showing off his tricks at the Eden. This is a little short, a little wide, but oddly Bairstow does't carve it as powerfully as he perhaps should have. Is he surprised by the ball holding in the pitch a bit. Is this a little change of pace? Nope. Replays show it's got nothing mysterious about it. But whatever it is, England lose a set batsman 237/5
View dismissal EJG Morgan* c Bumrah b Pandya 43 56 44 2 3 97.72
33.4 80.0 mph, that's awful. Much like Billings, Morgan has picked the only man in the pincode. This is a silly old ball, way down leg and he looks for some easy runs by flicking it away off his hips. Doesn't mind Bumrah who is stationed there inside the circle, like he was for Billings, and he completes a simple catch. That's drinks 194/3
View dismissal JC Buttler c Rahul b Pandya 11 19 15 1 0 73.33
37.6 86.0 mph, no timing at all in his on-the-up drive. It's a fuller, wider delivery. Innocuous really. Buttler goes through with his shot taking on a well-populated offside field and picks out the man at cover 212/4
BA Stokes not out 57 60 39 4 2 146.15
View dismissal MM Ali c Jadeja b Bumrah 2 7 5 0 0 40.00
42.6 84.2 mph, top-edge, onto helmet and taken at backward point. Moeen's bounced out. He looks extremely suspect against this line of attack. The umpires ask the batsman to wait to check the no-ball, but this time Bumrah's fine. He cramps the batsman for room, makes sure the ball was rising up over his shoulder, up at his nose. And in such cases, the hook, with no room to work with, is a poor shot. Although usually it sails over the keeper's head... 246/6
View dismissal CR Woakes run out (Kumar/†Dhoni) 34 35 19 4 1 178.94
49.5 from Kumar, he's run out at the non-strikers' end. Stokes wants to pinch a single with the ball wandering down leg. Woakes has no chance of making his ground, considering Dhoni had tossed the ball to Bhuvi, to the righ tend and Woakes sacrifices his wicket 319/7
View dismissal LE Plunkett run out (sub [MK Pandey]/†Dhoni) 1 1 1 0 0 100.00
49.6 from Kumar, shimmies down the pitch and hammers a full toss to long-off. Plunkett goes for a second run, what does he have to lose, it's the last ball and the single is already in the book. This is good scampering from England. He dives in desperation but the throw from long-off beats him 321/8

  India innings (target: 322 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AM Rahane b Willey 1 8 6 0 0 16.66
1.4 82.5 mph, late swing, beautiful late, glorious swing and Rahane is out cheaply. His feet are shackled to the crease. He is driving down the wrong line. He is not ready for this full delivery to scythe through the air, through his gap between bat and pad and take the off stump. So England's cost for their non-appeal is one mere run 13/1
View dismissal KL Rahul c †Buttler b Ball 11 28 11 1 1 100.00
5.6 85.3 mph, that's straight up. This will take some catching and the man with the gloves calls for it. Sensible. Ball strikes in his first over. And he does so with Rahul trying to take the game on quite unnecessarily. He is on the front foot, looking to pull a back of a length delivery on middle. The bat comes down under the ball as it bounces more than Rahul expects. India repaying the favours Billings and Morgan did them. 37/2
View dismissal V Kohli* c †Buttler b Stokes 55 81 63 8 0 87.30
19.4 85.0 mph, they get him outside off! With just enough nibble, keeping the ball up, tempting Kohli to play on the up, play an expansive shot and the cover drive becomes a thick edge, so much that Buttler has to jump up and take the catch almost above his shoulder. The umpires check the no-ball, Stokes is safe and India lose their captain 102/3
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Billings b Plunkett 45 82 57 5 1 78.94
25.3 80.7 mph, he's found the man at deep midwicket. India making the same errors England did earlier. And we're even now. Takes a length ball on middle, flicks it in the air, despite the man in the deep, and pays the price for the carelessness 133/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni c †Buttler b Ball 25 45 36 1 1 69.44
31.4 83.9 mph, edged and taken by Buttler, another sharp catch, well above his shoulder to his right. Ball has had a fine night, coming back after putting Kohli down earlier. This one's on a good length, outside off, draws the big shot from Dhoni and a little extra bounce takes the top edge through to the wicketkeeper. Odd sort of shot from Dhoni, considering there is so much time left in the game, driving away from the body when all innings he hid on the back foot 173/5
View dismissal KM Jadhav c Billings b Woakes 90 118 75 12 1 120.00
49.5 85.6 mph, taken at deep point. Woakes does it. Billings does it. England edge ahead. This is a fuller ball outside off, Jadhav goes for a slice, he hasn't timed it. It's because the ball was wider, away from his reach. Robs him of his timing and off he walks having smashed 90 off 75! Top innings. Standing ovation from his team-mates. But will it be enough for India? 316/9
View dismissal HH Pandya b Stokes 56 67 43 4 2 130.23
45.3 82.0 mph, he's bowled him. Stokes, the talisman. England's gun player. He does it again. It's all quite simple really. Just a good length ball aimed at the stumps. You miss I hit territory and Pandya misses with an almighty slog. Walks off with a grimace 277/6
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Bairstow b Woakes 10 8 6 2 0 166.66
46.5 84.7 mph, picks out deep midwicket and Bairstow turns around to the crowd and exults. The game turns again! This is the back of a length delivery outside off, Jadeja hammers it right off the middle, but he fails to pick the gap. 291/7
View dismissal R Ashwin c Woakes b Stokes 1 5 3 0 0 33.33
47.5 82.1 mph, hits it straight up and Woakes takes a pressure catch at mid-on. Stokes exorcising the demons from the World T20. he goes for the length ball. He threatens the stumps. He makes the batsman make the play and Ashwin panics. Swings blind and mistimes badly 297/8
