ICC World Twenty20, 2007/08 / Commentary

ICC World Twenty20 - 21st match, Group E

England v India

India won by 18 runs

4.1

Joginder Sharma to Maddy, no run, swivels in his medium pace and beats him, the ball jumping over his bat

4.2

Joginder Sharma to Maddy, FOUR, a touch of width and cut behind point

4.3

Joginder Sharma to Maddy, no run, tighter line, and a good delivery now - play and a miss through to the keeper

4.4

Joginder Sharma to Maddy, 1 run, driven out to mid-on and the strike's rotated again

4.5

Joginder Sharma to Solanki, FOUR, calamity. RP Singh trips at third man on his way to trying to catch a huge top edge. He can only make a fumbling, desperate grope at the ball as it rejects his advances to fly on its merry way through. RP checks his studs afterwards

4.6

Joginder Sharma to Solanki, SIX, over wide long-on

England 45/0   Joginder Sharma 1-0-15-0

7.1

Joginder Sharma to Solanki, no run, innocent delivery, outside off, Solanki tries the cut, is nowhere near it and a dot results

7.2

Joginder Sharma to Solanki, 2 runs, low full toss and RP Singh's studs don't give out this time as he does well to meet the straight swipe at long-on

7.3

Joginder Sharma to Solanki, 1 run, dropped. Easy chance to Yuvraj at gully off the back foot

7.4

Joginder Sharma to Pietersen, 1 run, driven out to cover for a quick single

7.5

Joginder Sharma to Solanki, 1 run, an easy single eased out to mid-off

7.6

Joginder Sharma to Pietersen, FOUR, firmly struck in front of midwicket, Pietersen standing tall and delivering

England 74/1   Joginder Sharma 2-0-24-0

11.1

Joginder Sharma to Pietersen, 2 runs, slower ball, and Pietersen doesn't quite pick it. The ball was in the air for an age, but just plopped out of reach of deep cover. A bit of good fortune for England

11.2

Joginder Sharma to Pietersen, 1 run, driven firmly but no great power, down to long-on

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

11.5

Joginder Sharma to Pietersen, SIX, deposited into the stands! Far too short from Joginder, and KP climbed into it, over midwicket

11.6

Joginder Sharma to Pietersen, FOUR, now he's too full, and the umpire is in danger as Pietersen drives hard and straight. Another boundary

England 117/2   Joginder Sharma 3-0-42-0

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

16.2

Joginder Sharma to Shah, 1 leg bye, full toss and a loud appeal as Shah misses with a cross-batted nurdle, but he's hit outside the line

16.3

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

16.4

Joginder Sharma to Shah, SIX, short and pulled ... all the way for a maximum! There's a good catch in the crowd to boot, and England give themselves another lifeline

16.5

Joginder Sharma to Shah, FOUR, short-arm jab and that's another six! Joginder has the same glazed look as Stuart Broad, and England have a smidgeon of hope

16.6

Joginder Sharma to Shah, 1 run, over midwicket again, but not timed on this occasion

England 167/3   Joginder Sharma 4-0-57-0
