England tour of India, 2008/09 / Commentary

England in India ODI Series - 4th ODI

India v England

India won by 19 runs (D/L method)

7.5

Broad to Tendulkar, OUT, would you believe it, Broad's cleaned up Tendulkar first ball after the delay! What scenes! Broad pitches on a really good length, fuller than what he's bowled to far, and gets Tendulkar driving on the up, the ball sneaks back in and disturbs the furniture as Tendulkar shapes to play through the line but the ball cut back in past the gap

SR Tendulkar b Broad 11 (40m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 52.38

India 38/1   V Sehwag 26* (26b 6x4)   SCJ Broad 3.5-1-19-1

18.1

Swann to Sehwag, OUT, and gone first ball! Tossed up on the stumps, Sehwag skips down and takes it on the full, except its right up in the air and down long-on's throat, end of an entertaining innings

V Sehwag c Anderson b Swann 69 (102m 57b 9x4 3x6) SR: 121.05

India 117/2   G Gambhir 33* (31b 6x4)   GP Swann 0.1-0-0-1

20.2

Swann to Gambhir, OUT, Swann gets another, and well bowled! Gambhir skips out, makes room, Swann holds back the length and turns the ball away from Gambhir, who ends up smacking it over the infield and down to Anderson near the ropes, who takes his second easy catch of the evening

G Gambhir c Anderson b Swann 40 (70m 37b 7x4 0x6) SR: 108.10

India 142/3   Yuvraj Singh 16* (7b 2x6)   GP Swann 1.2-0-7-2

21.5

Patel to Dhoni, OUT, timber! Patel gets a wicket with his fifth delivery, a full and flat yorker which hits the base of leg stump after Dhoni backs away and plays another of those whips to leg, thats just reward for whats been an excellent final over, a great way to keep these two batsmen quite at the death

MS Dhoni b Patel 9 (5m 5b 0x4 1x6) SR: 180.00

India 160/4   Yuvraj Singh 25* (11b 3x6)   SR Patel 2.5-0-18-1
