ICC World Twenty20, 2007/08 / Commentary

ICC World Twenty20 - 21st match, Group E

England v India

India won by 18 runs

10.5

Pathan to Collingwood, 1 run, Collingwood is a self-professed lover of the nurdle off the pads. And it does the trick to get him off the mark

England 98/2   PD Collingwood 1* (1b)

11.3

Joginder Sharma to Collingwood, FOUR, stand and deliver. Collingwood steps inside the line and swats that firmly behind square. Top shot. A fraction too short, and the man drops back at deep midwicket

11.4

Joginder Sharma to Collingwood, 1 run, dabbed into the leg-side, and Collingwood threatens to take two. Pietersen isn't so keen

England 107/2   PD Collingwood 6* (3b 1x4)

12.1

Pathan to Collingwood, 1 run, pitches outside leg, and Collingwood helps it on its way to midwicket

12.3

Pathan to Collingwood, no run, short but straight. Collingwood cuts but can't beat the man at point

12.4

Pathan to Collingwood, no run, full, yorker length, and Collingwood misses. Dhoni does well to stop the byes

12.5

Pathan to Collingwood, no run, lovely bowling again. Another yorker, outside off stump this time, and a very sharp take from Dhoni who whips off the bails, but Collingwood's foot is anchored

12.6

Pathan to Collingwood, 1 run, flapped into the covers, too straight to work with, and that's another cracking over

England 120/2   PD Collingwood 8* (8b 1x4)

13.1

Singh to Collingwood, 1 run, short again. Collingwood was back on his stumps in a pre-meditated move, and couldn't quite time his attempted pull

13.3

Singh to Collingwood, 1 run, short and slogged out to midwicket. That's not Collingwood's best game. Maybe he should try to dink a few boundaries off his hips

13.5

Singh to Collingwood, 1 run, another energetic smear from Collingwood, but it's not coming off for him. One more single to short midwicket

England 125/2   PD Collingwood 11* (11b 1x4)

14.3

Harbhajan Singh to Collingwood, 1 run, full length, and driven back to the bowler

14.6

Harbhajan Singh to Collingwood, 1 run, backs away and pushed into the covers. England's asking rate rises again

England 135/3   PD Collingwood 13* (13b 1x4)

15.1

Sreesanth to Collingwood, SIX, sixes are what England need, and Collingwood delivers! That was clean as a whistle, into the midwicket stand

15.2

Sreesanth to Collingwood, FOUR, sweetly timed. Stepped across to clip an off stump full-toss backward of square leg. England are brawling. Sort of

15.3

Sreesanth to Collingwood, 1 run, across his stumps again, and thumped into the covers

England 146/3   PD Collingwood 24* (16b 2x4 1x6)

16.1

Joginder Sharma to Collingwood, 1 run, twirled onto a good length and driven hard into the covers. A quick call as the shy came in, but the throw is a fraction too high to pull off the run-out

16.3

Joginder Sharma to Collingwood, 3 runs, clumped over extra-cover and picked up in the deep

England 156/3   PD Collingwood 28* (18b 2x4 1x6)

17.4

Singh to Collingwood, no run, moved outside off, went for a massive hoick over square leg, missed

17.5

Singh to Collingwood, OUT, moved outside off, went for a massive hoick over square leg, missed again. This time the bowler didn't. And that's comprehensively bowled

PD Collingwood b Singh 28 (32m 20b 2x4 1x6) SR: 140.00

England 170/5   PD Collingwood 28 (20b 2x4 1x6)
