View dismissal G Gambhir c Shah b Patel 51 91 63 8 0 80.95
19.5 England have got their first wicket. Gambhir came down the track and chipped it to left of long-off. He didn't hit it hard, just sort of chipped it and couldn't find the distance. I didn't notice it but SMG on air says, "Sehwag gave him a mouthful for not hitting it hard!" There you go. Simple policy. 127/1
View dismissal V Sehwag c Bell b Patel 85 108 73 10 3 116.43
23.6 Bell takes a beauty at midwicket to get rid of the imperious Sehwag. England strike back. Sehwag is down the track but ends up dragging his big heave to the right of midwicket. Bell flung himself to his right and picked the ball inches off the turf. Supremely athletic effort. Great to watch. Entertaining innings comes to an end. 153/2
View dismissal SK Raina c Collingwood b Flintoff 43 77 44 0 3 97.72
36.5 Caught by the diving Collingwood at backward point. Dipping low full toss outside off, Raina slices it to right of Colly who dives to take it. India have lost their third wicket. 242/3

View dismissal IR Bell c †Dhoni b Khan 25 47 35 3 0 71.42
10.3 edged and taken! Zaheer angles one wider across Bell, who cannot resist having a nibble when he sees width and succeeds in getting a nick to an ecstatic Dhoni, England three down 34/3
View dismissal MJ Prior c Sehwag b Patel 4 15 9 0 0 44.44
3.2 Munaf gets the first wicket. Prior is back. It was slanted across Prior who was sucked into the chase and edged it to first slip where Sehwag held on. 12/1
View dismissal OA Shah c Sehwag b Khan 0 7 5 0 0 0.00
4.5 Good catch by Sehwag, diving to his left at first slip. Zaheer hurled it full and across Shah, who was squared up completely and got a thickish edge; the ball flew to left of Sehwag, standing wide, and he did well to lunge to his left to take the catch. England are wobbling here at Rajkot. 17/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen* run out (Sharma/†Dhoni) 63 98 56 7 2 112.50
27.1 Sehwag to Bopara, KP is run out by Rohit Sharma. It was pushed to left of covers, Rohit picks and fires in a low throw, Dhoni lunges, collects, and breaks the stumps. Third umpire says out. KP already knows it. The crowd roar. England slip further. 150/7
View dismissal A Flintoff lbw b Khan 4 3 3 1 0 133.33
10.6 two in the over! Now Flintoff departs to one that pitches on a length just outside leg stump and striking him on the knee roll to hit him in front of middle stumps ... he's given out but thats a harsh call from the umpire 38/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood c †Dhoni b Singh 19 31 23 3 0 82.60
17.4 And facebook arguments might get difficult today for the Englishmen. From round the stumps, RP gets one to straighten a touch outside off and Collingwood has a lame poke at it. Gone! 76/5
View dismissal SR Patel st †Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 28 31 28 0 2 100.00
26.1 Done in by the doosra. Patel charged down. Panic. Desperate swing. Air. Death knell. Patel couldn't reach the pitch of the ball, tried to chase it as it turned away but couldn't connect. Harbhajan signals bye bye to him. 147/6
RS Bopara not out 54 45 38 2 5 142.10
View dismissal SCJ Broad c Gambhir b Sehwag 26 28 25 2 0 104.00
35.3 Again too much elevation and it drops into Gambhir's hands at long-on. Eight wickets down. Bopara now, no one is going to argue hopefully, left with tail enders 195/8
View dismissal SJ Harmison run out (Harbhajan Singh/†Dhoni) 0 2 0 0 0 -
35.6 Sehwag to Bopara, Harmison is run out. It was turned to Harbhajan Singh at short fine-leg and they go for the risky single. The throw comes in right on target and Dhoni breaks the stumps. 207/9
View dismissal JM Anderson lbw b Pathan 0 6 4 0 0 0.00
37.4 Game over. Fired in full and straight, Anderson misses the attempted paddle. Hawk eye suggets it would have turned and missed the off stump. India have won by 158 runs. 229/10
