    7.5 Bresnan takes out Sehwag, with a little bit of help from Prior. It was a back of length delivery outside off, it came pretty slowly off the track, Sehwag thought ok then, I see some width, let me steer it through the vacant slips. Mistake. The ball wobbled off the face of the bat to right of Matt Prior who dived to take a good one-handed catch. Sehwag tucks the bat under his arm and walks off. The crowd... you know what they would have done, don't you... 46/1
    38.2 Tendulkar falls! He was looking to the leg side once again, but went a touch too early at the ball and a leading edge loops gently to cover. Anderson strikes, no doubt with great relief! What an innings that was for Tendulkar, he's set his team up for a massive total 236/3

    29.4 gone! Against the run of play Swann has got the breakthrough. It was a good ball, biting into the pitch and spinning past what was another very lazy nurdle from Gambhir. It looked like he was trying to get it down to third man, but the feet went nowhere. Poor shot, and it's got England back into the game 180/2
    45.6 and gone. Stadium goes quiet for a moment, just a moment. Short and Yuvraj just got it off the bottom of the bat out to deep midwicket where Bell held a simple catch. No great celebration from England, hardly surprising really. Good work from Yuvraj and crucially for India as the tournament goes on, he's found his form 305/4
    46.1 Dhoni falls now! Two in two for England. Shortish ball that Dhoni swung hard at but straight to Luke Wright at deep midwicket. 305/5
    48.1 Swann gets this one right, Pathan again swinging wildly but the slower ball meant he mistimed it and it looped out to mid-off 327/6

    48.2 and another! Bresnan getting good reward for being England's best bowler. Yorker length, Kohli gives himself room, too much room in fact and it thuds into the base of off stump. Here comes Zaheer 327/7
    48.4 Three in four for Bresnan to give him his 5th wicket! Full, swinging in late and striking Harbhajan on the back boot right in front of the stumps. Harbhajan reviewed but it was still very out. That's also Bresnan's career-best ODI figures. England finishing well, just the first 46 overs that cost them 328/8
    49.5 India innings ends with a whimper, but there was plenty of bang for most of it. England ended up bowling India out as Zaheer tries to steal a second after pulling the ball to midwicket. And Munaf Patel has not placed the bat inside the crease during the first run. One short. And hence no runs this ball 338/10
    49.4 free hit ends underwhelmingly as Chawla bunts straight back to Anderson, sets off for a run that would never happen and Anderson takes the bails off 338/9

    42.5 this match is alive! Zaheer has flipped it on its head again. What a delivery! Searing yorker, swinging in late and it's crashed into Strauss's boot in front of middle. Ends an innings of the highest highest quality but will it be in vain? 281/4
    9.3 Hello Hello! This is a Youtube moment from Munaf. KP had smashed a full delivery back to Munaf, who put his hands out, to catch and more to save his face i reckon, even as he slipped to the ground. The ball popped up of his palm and gravity took it right back to Munaf, now sitting on the ground, who puts his left hand up and pouches it very calmly. KP can't believe it. The crowd love it. And for some reason, Munaf even throws in an appeal! 68/1
    16.4 Chawla strikes! It was so plump Trott pretty much walked. Went back to play across the line, should have been forward, missed it and India have their second 111/2

    42.4 Powerplays always cause trouble and Bell has gifted his wicket away! Struggling with cramp perhaps, he's tried to clear the field with a real heave, skews it off the edge and it loops to mid-off. Wild celebrations, this is far from over 281/3
    44.3 Zaheer is the man! Collingwood down the track to try and swing to leg but Zaheer slipped it in slower, such smart bowling, gripped off the pitch as well and pegged back off stump. Incredible spell this. India are favourites again! Is there are influential player than Zaheer? Take him out the India attack and it's threadbare. Good luck Michael Yardy... 285/5
    45.2 The crowd erupts! Harbhajan has Prior now, the light fading for England. Prior tried to mow this out of the ground over midwicket, Harbhajan always gets that extra bounce though and it found an edge and soared high in the air for midwicket to pouch 289/6
    47.3 Yardy is out, and England must be as well now. Strauss has his head in his hand, he deserved more. Yardy tried to flip this over short fine leg but couldn't get enough on the slower ball and it spooned straight to the man 307/7

    48.6 Chawla strikes back! One way and another this match is going! Bresnan tried again to to find the boundary, he had to, but it's quicker and flatter and through him onto off stump 325/8
