    3.3 bowled him! And that's what the Superstars needed! Full, fast and straight, a devastating yorker right into the blockhole. Bell jams his bat down but deflects the ball onto his leg stump. And now we've got a game 21/1

    3.5 bowled him! Round his legs as Prior danced across the crease to whip a boundary through fine leg! A misjudgement and an untimely one. His leg stump goes flying and now England have got all the problems! 22/2
    5.5 incredible! After all the drops there have been this week, that was an astounding take from Dave Mohammed, although he nearly caused a calamity by not calling! A wild swish into the leg-side, a spiralling top-edge, and two men converged at square leg, and almost touched shoulders as the catch went in 29/3
    7.5 now there's real trouble for England! Pietersen walks across his stumps, Sammy responded by pitching it right up to leg stump, and there's no hope of getting back on ball as the leg stump goes flying for the third time in the innings! 33/4
    11.3 he's gone now! Another slower ball, held back a touch, Flintoff swings, misses and his off bail has been pinged off! 51/5
    12.2 slog-sweep, and Sarwan stoops to pluck a sitter at deep midwicket! England have given up all pretence now. They don't even want the money any more 54/6
    19 that's ever so slightly average. Never run on a misfield. Chris Gayle dived in the covers and seemed to have knocked the ball away. But his return was bullet-like, and Patel had no chance 92/8
    13.5 swiped in the air to long-on, and there's Sammy! He doesn't drop those! Coolly taken a yard inside the rope, and pandemonium is ensuing. This is turning into an utter rout! 59/7

    14.4 it's a total procession! Quicker, straighter, yorker. Swann gave himself room but had no response! 63/8

  • Dancing with the devil

    It feels like a 21st century reincarnation of the Oxford-Cambridge boat-race, a sporting oddity in a world where wealth has supplanted learning as the means to obtaining power
