ICC World Twenty20 - 21st match, Group E

England v India

India won by 18 runs

2.1

Flintoff to Sehwag, 2 runs, nudged away fine as Flintoff gives a touch of width, well fielded by Mascarenhas on the boundary's edge

2.2

Flintoff to Sehwag, no run, left alone outside off, but a lovely length

2.3

Flintoff to Sehwag, no run

2.4

Flintoff to Sehwag, 1 run, fast and straight, and deflected for a single

2.5

Flintoff to Gambhir, no run, full-hearted effort, but Flintoff grimaces in his followthrough once more

2.6

Flintoff to Gambhir, 1 run, short of a length but tight to off stump. Gambhir cuts but is cramped for room, a single nonetheless

India 17/0   A Flintoff 1-0-4-0

5.1

Flintoff to Sehwag, no run, outside off stump and climbing through to the keeper

5.2

Flintoff to Sehwag, 2 runs, fuller and straighter, Sehwag hustles his shot into the leg side and finds the gap

5.3

Flintoff to Sehwag, no run, strange shot that time, Sehwag hops across to whip into the leg side, but is beaten by the bounce. Nipped off the seam and through to the keeper

5.4

Flintoff to Sehwag, no run

5.5

Flintoff to Sehwag, 1 wide, too much room that time

5.5

Flintoff to Sehwag, 2 runs, cracking effort from Broad at third man, hauled in a certain four after a bit of width from Flintoff

5.6

Flintoff to Sehwag, 1 run, raps the pads and runs away to gully

India 41/0   A Flintoff 2-0-10-0

17.1

Flintoff to Dhoni, 1 run, firm cover drive but not into a gap in the deep

17.2

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

17.3

Flintoff to Dhoni, 1 run, full toss, driven on the bounce to Collingwood at long-off

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   A Flintoff 3-0-22-0

19.1

Flintoff to Dhoni, 1 run, after the Lord Mayor's Show ... reverse sweep for a single

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

19.6

Flintoff to Dhoni, 2 runs, a low-key finish as Dhoni works it to leg, but even a six out of the ground would have been low-key after Yuvraj's fireworks

India 218/4   A Flintoff 4-0-33-1
