Tremlett to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, driven uppishly over the covers, he gave himself room and timed that sweetly

India 159/3   Yuvraj Singh 4* (2b 1x4)

17.2

Flintoff to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, swung into the leg side, well picked up

17.4

Flintoff to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, half-volley which he squeezes with an open face over point for a one bounce four ... a high-risk shot but his connection was sweet

17.5

Flintoff to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, short, hooked into the heavens where it hangs for several seconds before plopping two yards in from the boundary and perfectly between two approaching fielders

17.6

Flintoff to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, chipped to long-on

India 171/3   Yuvraj Singh 14* (6b 3x4)

18.1

Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, that's out the ground, super shot over cow corner and it just kept going up

18.2

Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, now that really is sweet, no more than a dismissive flick off his legs, swatting a fly, and the ball arcs deep into the crowd beyond backward square leg

18.3

Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, he's hitting them everywhere, he steps to leg and smashes the ball over extra cover and it keeps on travelling ... the fireworks start on top of the scoreboard ... they've been going off in the middle for some time

18.4

Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, Shiver me timbers!: Broad goes round the wicket, bowls a filthy wide full toss and Yuvraj steers it over backward point and it clears the rope again

18.5

Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, down on one knee and larruped over midwicket, that one was more nine iron, it went into the night sky and dropped with a thud in the jubilant crowd ...

18.6

Broad to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, and he has, Yuvraj leans back and smacks that over wide mid-on ... it was the maximum from the moment it left that bat and the crowd were roaring as it flew

India 207/3   Yuvraj Singh 50* (12b 3x4 6x6)

19.2

Flintoff to Yuvraj Singh, no run, full toss and a wide one - it pitched nearer the keeper than the stumps - Yuvraj leaves and then he and Flintoff chat

19.3

Flintoff to Yuvraj Singh, 2 runs, improvised chip into the leg side, he stepped to the off and eased it one bounce to deep midwicket

19.4

Flintoff to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, Flintoff's turn to suffer, a full swing and launched over long-off

19.5

Flintoff to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, finally he doesn't quite get hold of one and thwacks a full toss to long-on. It matters not one jot, he's done his job and the crowd stand in appreciation

Yuvraj Singh c Collingwood b Flintoff 58 (14m 16b 3x4 7x6) SR: 362.50

India 216/4   Yuvraj Singh 58 (16b 3x4 7x6)
