India won by 18 runs

6.1

Harbhajan Singh to Pietersen, 1 run, on off, wrists it behind leg for a quick single

6.2

Harbhajan Singh to Solanki, 1 run, on off again, pulled away in front of square

6.3

Harbhajan Singh to Pietersen, 1 run, on leg, flapped round through the 45

6.4

Harbhajan Singh to Solanki, 2 leg byes, on leg, swept very fine to a straight long leg

6.5

Harbhajan Singh to Solanki, 1 run, uses his feet and meets the ball at what becomes half-volley length, driving it out straight to long-on

6.6

Harbhajan Singh to Pietersen, 2 runs, full toss, Pietersen's turn to come down the track and drive to mid-on

England 65/1   Harbhajan Singh 1-0-6-0

8.1

Harbhajan Singh to Solanki, FOUR, short, outside off, and pulled high and in front of midwicket

8.2

Harbhajan Singh to Solanki, 1 run, driven out to cover for an easy single

8.3

Harbhajan Singh to Pietersen, 1 leg bye, huge and close shout as Pietersen shuffles over - big call that, Singh striking on the line and the ball would have perhaps hit leg

8.4

Harbhajan Singh to Solanki, 1 run, driven out to cover now

8.5

Harbhajan Singh to Pietersen, 1 run, full delivery, Pietersen waits and digs out a single in front of midwicket

8.6

Harbhajan Singh to Solanki, 1 run, doesn't quite come out as Singh was hoping, a leg-side full toss which is missed out on, with a tame flap to deep backward square leg

England 83/1   Harbhajan Singh 2-0-14-0

14.1

Harbhajan Singh to Pietersen, OUT, that's curtains for England! A rank full-toss and Pietersen clobbered it, but straight back at the bowler. It was self-preservation first and foremost, but a great take in front of his face, and Pietersen is gone!

KP Pietersen c & b Harbhajan Singh 39 (33m 23b 3x4 1x6) SR: 169.56

14.2

Harbhajan Singh to Shah, 1 run, Shah's off the mark, but singles ain't enough ...

14.3

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

14.4

Harbhajan Singh to Shah, 1 wide, fizzed down the leg-side, Dhoni takes well and pulls off the stumping attempt, but no-one's fooled

14.4

Harbhajan Singh to Shah, FOUR, excellent shot from Shah, that's what England need. A pre-meditated sweep from outside off stump, and that races away to fine leg

14.5

Harbhajan Singh to Shah, 1 run, another attempted sweep, but faster and flatter this time. Fine leg fields

14.6

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

England 135/3   Harbhajan Singh 3-0-23-1

18.1

Harbhajan Singh to Wright, no run, down the track to meet a thigh-high leg-side full toss - and misses out

18.2

Harbhajan Singh to Wright, 5 wides, wide down leg and the ball scurries away for four. That'll help

18.2

Harbhajan Singh to Wright, 1 run, full toss, almost follows Wright as he makes room. Cut to backward point

18.3

Harbhajan Singh to Flintoff, 1 run, Flintoff's getting and administering a bit of banter out there. Harbhajan sends down a low full toss, but it's not put away

18.4

Harbhajan Singh to Wright, 2 runs, full and straight again, and a near-miss at the non-striker's end. A direct hit would have been out

18.5

Harbhajan Singh to Wright, 1 run, makes room again and smeared into the covers, the shy comes in but misses

18.6

Harbhajan Singh to Flintoff, 2 runs, another wild swing, but to no great avail

England 183/5   Harbhajan Singh 4-0-35-1
