England tour of India, 2008/09 / Wicket commentary

England in India ODI Series - 2nd ODI

India v England

India won by 54 runs


Broad to Sehwag, OUT, inside edge and timber! Broad gets the ball to cut back in after pitching on a good length and Sehwag is a little late in covering the movement, the ball takes the inside edge and strikes the base of the offstump. Sehwag played a similar shot off Anderson in the previous over but got away. Not this time.

V Sehwag b Broad 1 (6m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

India 4/1   G Gambhir 1* (4b)   SCJ Broad 0.2-0-0-1


Broad to Raina, OUT, very soft dismissal and Broad has two now, the ball pitches on a good length on middle and leg, Raina expects it to come on quicker and is too early on the stroke, he ends up chipping it tamely to Patel at short square leg who falls forward and takes it comfortably

SK Raina c Patel b Broad 4 (10m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

India 15/2   G Gambhir 7* (9b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 1.4-0-9-2


Broad to Sharma, OUT, He's thrown his wicket away, a sudden rush of blood from Rohit Sharma, he attempts to hook a short ball on a slow pitch and fails to carry off the stroke, Owais Shah at midwicket takes a sitter, Broad is the star of the morning

RG Sharma c Shah b Broad 3 (16m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 23.07

India 29/3   G Gambhir 18* (19b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 3.3-0-12-3


Pietersen to Gambhir, OUT, the bowling change has worked! Gambhir walks across his stumps and tries to fetch it from outside the off stump and work it to the on side, he tries to clip it away but gets an inside edge which rolls on to his stumps

G Gambhir b Pietersen 70 (132m 76b 6x4 1x6) SR: 92.10

India 163/4   Yuvraj Singh 74* (79b 9x4 2x6)   KP Pietersen 1-0-7-1


Collingwood to Dhoni, OUT, temporary respite for England, Dhoni tries to improvise by glancing to third man with very little room outside the off stump, the offcutter nips back in and shaves the off stump

MS Dhoni b Collingwood 15 (31m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.69

India 206/5   Yuvraj Singh 100* (107b 12x4 2x6)   PD Collingwood 7-0-39-1


Broad to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, and finally England have found a way to dismiss Yuvraj, Broad pitches it up outside off and Yuvraj throws everything at it, there's a feather touch and Prior takes the offering easily

Yuvraj Singh c †Prior b Broad 118 (153m 122b 15x4 2x6) SR: 96.72

India 239/6   YK Pathan 13* (13b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 7.4-1-37-4


Flintoff to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, direct hit, he makes room and clubs a full delivery straight to Pietersen at mid-off who's back on the edge of the circle, he takes aim and knocks the stumps at the bowler's end and Harbhajan doesn't even wait for the umpire's signal, he walks

Harbhajan Singh run out 8 (14m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

India 258/7   YK Pathan 24* (20b 1x4 1x6)   A Flintoff 7.3-0-41-0


Broad to Khan, OUT, well for a change there's some wood on leather and it beats the bowler, he pushes it to Patel at mid-on and sets off for a very risky run, he hits the timber, no need for the replay, Zaheer's misery ends

Z Khan run out 1 (6m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

India 261/8   YK Pathan 25* (22b 1x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 9.5-1-49-4


Harmison to Singh, OUT, makes room to heave it over midwicket but misses, Harmison bowls it bang on the leg stump line, the ball goes through straight and pegs the legstump back

India 274/9   YK Pathan 33* (25b 1x4 2x6)   SJ Harmison 6.1-1-33-1
