21 April 2009 (20-over match)

Ganguly to Bopara, 1 run, on middle and leg, pushed wide of midwicket for a single


Ganguly to Pathan, OUT, the bowling change works! Meaty, length ball outside off and he slogs it well towards deep midwicket, but he doesn't time it well enough to clear the ropes as Kartik cups it standing right at the edge of the ropes, and ensures he doesn't lose his balance. Big blow that!

Ganguly to Sangakkara, 1 run, on middle and off, gets forward and dabs it wide of cover for a single

RS Bopara c †McCullum b Ganguly 15 (15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00
