India v England

Match drawn

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150  | Overs 151-200

1.6

Broad to Sehwag, OUT, well, there you go...this game is a great leveller, gets a thin outside edge on this drive and Prior takes an easy catch by his ankles. Broad makes a major mark early on his return and what a confidence booster that is for England

V Sehwag c †Prior b Broad 0 (12m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 6/1   G Gambhir 6* (9b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 1-0-1-1

109.5

Swann to Gambhir, OUT, he comes down the pitch, Swann fires one in wide of off stump, Gambhir miscues an attempted drive and the ball loops off an outside edge to Cook who holds a comfortable catch at backward point

G Gambhir c Cook b Swann 179 (466m 348b 25x4 1x6) SR: 51.43

India 320/2   R Dravid 130* (313b 18x4)   GP Swann 23.5-5-67-1

113.3

Swann to Dravid, OUT, one brings two ... Dravid looks to hit the ball over long-on, but his feet aren't in the right place and he only manages to loft the ball to Panesar at deep mid-off

R Dravid c Panesar b Swann 136 (471m 328b 19x4 0x6) SR: 41.46

India 329/3   SR Tendulkar 3* (7b)   GP Swann 25.3-5-69-2

119.4

Swann to Tendulkar, OUT, gone! And Graeme Swann has his third, Tendulkar goes down for the sweep-turned-paddle and is struck on the front pad...a huge appeal from Swann and eventually Daryl Harper puts his finger up. He was struck in line with off stump and that was heading for middle

SR Tendulkar lbw b Swann 11 (45m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.30

India 337/4   VVS Laxman 0* (18b)   GP Swann 28.4-5-75-3

120.6

Flintoff to Laxman, OUT, and another goes, Flintoff has reward for all his efforts as he traps Laxman with one that nips back off the seam and takes him in front of middle. The ball would have gone on to take the top of middle and leg. He was set up by all the short stuff, then Flintoff pitched this one further up...well bowled

VVS Laxman lbw b Flintoff 0 (34m 24b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 339/5   Yuvraj Singh 2* (2b)   A Flintoff 23-7-44-1

140.3

Panesar to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, the softest of dismissals sets Panesar whooping and hollering ... Yuvraj tries to work to leg but the bat twists to much as the ball pops and it loops oh-so-gently to Prior as he skips from behind the stumps

Yuvraj Singh c †Prior b Panesar 27 (82m 66b 3x4 1x6) SR: 40.90

India 379/6   MS Dhoni 14* (54b 1x4)   MS Panesar 18.3-2-66-1

146.5

Anderson to Dhoni, OUT, he uses his feet and slams it right to midwicket where substitute fielder Shah makes a sharp catch - two-handed above his head - look very easy

MS Dhoni c sub (OA Shah) b Anderson 29 (101m 73b 3x4 0x6) SR: 39.72

India 418/7   Harbhajan Singh 24* (19b 2x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 28.5-4-77-1

147.2

Panesar to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, and another goes, Harbhajan tries to go over the top but finds mid-off who was about half way back to the boundary. Another wicket for Panesar, but India clearly just trying to have a crack

Harbhajan Singh c Swann b Panesar 24 (32m 21b 2x4 1x6) SR: 114.28

India 418/8   Z Khan 0* (1b)   MS Panesar 21.2-2-78-2

154.3

Flintoff to Khan, OUT, and he strikes, Zaheer going for a wild drive through the off side and gets a thick inside edge into leg stump. Nothing less than Flintoff deserved.

Z Khan b Flintoff 7 (37m 21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

India 446/9   A Mishra 21* (23b 1x4 1x6)   A Flintoff 28.3-9-52-2

158.2

Flintoff to Mishra, OUT, and that's that, Flintoff bursts through Mishra's defences and wraps up the innings with his third wicket

A Mishra b Flintoff 23 (47m 31b 1x4 1x6) SR: 74.19

India 453/10   I Sharma 1* (15b)   A Flintoff 30.2-10-54-3
