23 February 2008 - day/night match (50-over match)
0.2

Mills to Mustard, no run, a swish and a miss outside off. That's a tempting line, angling across the left-hander

0.3

Mills to Mustard, no run, lovely line again, curving back in towards off stump, and just sneaking past the off stump. Looked like movement off the pitch there ...

0.4

Mills to Mustard, no run, outside off and shaping away this time. Mustard is in place for a cut, but leaves alone

0.5

Mills to Mustard, 1 run, clipped firmly off the toes, but straight to Jeetan Patel on the midwicket boundary

England 2/0   P Mustard 1* (4b)
1.1

Martin to Mustard, no run, round the wicket, angling in to off stump, defended to midwicket

1.2

Martin to Mustard, 1 run, back of a length, nudged to point where Jamie How swooped and shied. I think the batsman was just in, had the ball hit. Which it didn't

England 3/0   P Mustard 2* (6b)
2.1

Mills to Mustard, no run, back of a length and a hint of width, but Mustard finds himself cramped for room with an attempted cut

2.2

Mills to Mustard, OUT, oh dear, well, he was never going to hang around. A monstrous heave off a good length, a spiralling leading edge, and Jamie How judges the ball well at cover, as it holds up in the wind and plops from floodlight-height into his safe hands

P Mustard c How b Mills 2 (10m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

England 5/1   P Mustard 2 (8b)
