16,17,18,19,20 November 2009 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150

Welegedara to Sehwag, FOUR, swing again but it's a bit wider and Sehwag plants his front foot out and drives sweetly between cover and point for four first ball


Welegedara to Sehwag, 1 run, strays outside leg stump and Sehwag gets a faint tickle on that

India 6/0   V Sehwag 5* (2b 1x4)

Prasad to Sehwag, no run, full ball, angling into middle and off and Sehwag jams it out nicely


Prasad to Sehwag, FOUR, bad ball, full on the pads and he turns that into the gap at square leg


Prasad to Sehwag, no run, big shout as this one angles down toward leg stump, not too much swing on the ball as Sehwag looks to pick that up off his pads, he misses but even to the naked eye it was clear the ball was moving down last leg stump


Prasad to Sehwag, 1 run, change of pace and length, he just pulls back the length a touch and Sehwag stabs at it, getting an inside edge onto his pad and the ball balloons up safely to the on side, had a forward short leg been in that would have been a nice catch

India 11/0   V Sehwag 10* (6b 2x4)

Welegedara to Sehwag, 1 run, on the pads and turned away toward midwicket with ease

India 14/0   V Sehwag 11* (7b 2x4)

Prasad to Sehwag, no run, another massive appeal from Prasad as he slants one into Sehwag, who doesn't move his feet much as he tries to turn the ball away, but it is again doing too much and is missing leg stump


Prasad to Sehwag, FOUR, shot, man! Prasad just pulls back the length outside off and Sehwag gets nice and tall and steady to steer the ball into the gap behind point for four

India 20/1   V Sehwag 15* (9b 3x4)

Prasad to Sehwag, 1 run, back of a length and he gets in line nicely, pushing it off the back foot to extra cover and calling Dravid across for the quick single

India 21/1   V Sehwag 16* (10b 3x4)

Welegedara to Sehwag, OUT, long thought and then its given! Welegedara pitches it on about middle and off, 134k, just shapes it in wee bit and strikes Sehwag flush on the front pad as he gets two-thirds forward, bat just late to come down, and after taking some time to ascertain whether there was any bat on it Tony Hill raises his finger, and on replays it shows he is spot on, that was hitting middle and off

V Sehwag lbw b Welegedara 16 (31m 11b 3x4 0x6) SR: 145.45

India 27/2   V Sehwag 16 (11b 3x4)
