    3.5 Parthiv is in big trouble. Run out at the non-striker's end, backing up too far. It was overpitched in Rahane's zone and he played the perfect straight check drive. Finn, on his follow through, tried to stop it with the right hand and ended up helping it along to the stumps. Parthiv was not even in the picture. 17/1
    11.4 Rahane will want to forget this innings as soon as possible. Swann again strikes in his first over. Rahane's worked himself into a shotless corner, and suddenly tries to break free against spin. He tries to step out to Swann and loft through the off side, but Swann's canny drift takes the ball away before it dips and breaks in, easily beating the shot. Kieswetter completes an easy stumping. 52/2
    17.5 the back of the hand slower one does for Gambhir. The full toss is now a genuine wicket-taking delivery! The ball just looped out in slow motion out of Dernbach's fingers, and Gambhir did a double take as he saw it take its time traversing the 22 yards. He tried to slap it away, but missed and was hit on the full just in front of leg stump. Very weird stuff, but I guess that was a good call from umpire Billy. 79/3
    28.5 KP more than redeems himself for that misfield at long on earlier with a superb leaping take on the edge of the long off boundary, Kohli's look shows it all, he looks disgusted in disbelief, he had got to the pitch this time and lofted inside-out over extra cover but KP was around on the boundary and leaped two feet in the air to catch it 123/4
    38.5 he lives and falls by the shot again, tries the slog-smash off a widish going across outside off and slices it high for point to take a tumbling catch as he hurtles back, Raina gone in the Powerplay just when he was starting to hurt England, big breeak 195/5

    45.6 sharp work from Bresnan, he has caught Jadeja short after he backs away too much, Dhoni squeezed out a yorker outside off, Bresnan raced towards the ball even as Jadeja charged up the wicket, saw Bresnan was already on to the ball, turned around and ran back, but Bresnan caught him short with a direct hit 260/6
    48.2 Finn runs Ashwin out, Dhoni stayed back again but could not get enough under this full delivery, they went for the single, but Finn kept running in his followthrough, and lobbed the ball on to the striker's stumps with Ashwin well short 282/7

    22.4 gone! There's the breakthrough as Cook gives it away. Uses his feet and tries to clear the boundary at deep midwicket but can only pick out the boundary rider 111/3
    2.2 edged, and gone! Praveen has struck with the new ball. He zinged one down on a full length and got the ball to seam away from Kieswetter, who fished at it away from his body and sent a clear edge through to Dhoni. India will be mightily pleased with this early strike, which will stall England's hopes of attacking the new ball 7/1
    9.1 Pietersen is run out! Where was the dive? He nudged to mid on and set off - as he has done a couple of times in the last few overs - but this time the fielder sprinted in quickly and fired in a shy, finding KP inches short. It was Ashwin with the throw, and the crowd are cheering Pietersen's demise 40/2

    24.4 gone! Back-to-back wickets for India and both set batsmen have gone. An ugly shot from Trott as he tries a big sweep and the ball hits leg stump. So it's 26 off 42 balls for Trott. That won't silence the debates 120/4
    25.6 gone! And another. England falling apart as Bopara drives a return catch to Ashwin. Defeat in the air and early on the shot. Simple take for the bowler 124/5
    26.5 gone! This is a proper collapse and now Bairstow chips a return catch. Went for the drive, played it firmly, and Jadeja's held a regulation chance. What a spell for him. England falling fast 126/6

    33.5 well, that was unnecessary. The last shot was classy, this one was just atrocious. He knows the ball is keeping low, but he swings merrily across the line at a straight length delivery, and is cleaned up. And that's about it for England. Dernbach comes out to face the music, and this shouldn't take long 163/9
    29.2 that's No. 7, a real old-style England collapse. Fired down the leg side which beat Bresnan as he came down the pitch. MS Dhoni was very alert with a smart stumping 134/7
    31.4 undone by the low bounce! He should've been on his guard after that last delivery. Yadav moved his line a little straighter but again Swann swished across the line, again a low, scuttling delivery buzzed under his bat, but this time it clattered into the stumps. Swann has an accusatory look at the pitch as he walks off, but that's not the first one to have kept low today 148/8

    36.1 all over! Dernbach has a massive mow across the line, is beaten by an offspinner and loses his leg bail. Ashwin ends the game with his third wicket, and this was a real whomping 174/10
