    18.1 and gone first ball! Tossed up on the stumps, Sehwag skips down and takes it on the full, except its right up in the air and down long-on's throat, end of an entertaining innings 117/2
    7.5 would you believe it, Broad's cleaned up Tendulkar first ball after the delay! What scenes! Broad pitches on a really good length, fuller than what he's bowled to far, and gets Tendulkar driving on the up, the ball sneaks back in and disturbs the furniture as Tendulkar shapes to play through the line but the ball cut back in past the gap 38/1
    20.2 Swann gets another, and well bowled! Gambhir skips out, makes room, Swann holds back the length and turns the ball away from Gambhir, who ends up smacking it over the infield and down to Anderson near the ropes, who takes his second easy catch of the evening 142/3

    21.5 timber! Patel gets a wicket with his fifth delivery, a full and flat yorker which hits the base of leg stump after Dhoni backs away and plays another of those whips to leg, thats just reward for whats been an excellent final over, a great way to keep these two batsmen quite at the death 160/4

    1.2 oh well held, Ishant! The hair cut has worked wonders for the tall, lanky fast bowler! Munaf drops on a length and Bopara pulls across the line, looks to be hit okay but suddenly Ishant throws himself around full stretch to his right at mid-off, going parallel, and clutches onto a beauty to send Bopara back ... a fabulous start from India and England are 1 for 1 in the second over 1/1
    7.4 goddim! Harbhajan slows the pace, tosses it up on the stumps, Bell gets down and swings, misses, and the ball hits the sticks, simple as that 44/2
    16.5 and Zaheer gets Shah, standing and twirling the bat at this one on a length, he absolutely makes a mess of it and Tendulkar takes a simple catch at point 134/4
    8.5 bowled 'em! Thats a big wicket, Ishant draws a loose stroke from England's captain, upping the pace after the slower ball, Pietersen backs away and shapes to sort of steer that down to third man except the ball is too straight and smashes his stumps flat 52/3
    17.4 slower ball does the trick! Flintoff backs away and spoons the ball straight to Zaheer's lap at extra cover and India have taken control of the batting Powerplay emphatically 141/5
    21.5 ho hum, Collingwood swings straight to Tendulkar at midwicket 178/8
    19.6 Gambhir holds onto one! Patel gets back and slaps a low full toss to mid-off, where Gambhir crouches down and takes it, then sees it pop back out, so dives forward and takes it on the second attempt ... his team-mates rush towards him to slap him on the back for holding on 161/6
    21.4 easy as pie, Collingwood pushes a very full ball back to Munaf, Swann takes off and makes for the other end, Collingwood doesn't even react, Munaf collects and effects the easiest run out of his career with both batsmen saying hello to each other at one end 178/7
