ICC World Twenty20, 2007/08 / Commentary

ICC World Twenty20 - 21st match, Group E

England v India

India won by 18 runs

4.2

Broad to Gambhir, SIX, avast, the first six of the innings. Short and clobbered over midwicket

India 30/0   G Gambhir 14* (13b 1x6)   SCJ Broad 1.2-0-11-0

6.4

Mascarenhas to Sehwag, SIX, up up and away, opened the blade to a bit of width, and that's hit a spectator at deep point like a cannonball

India 53/0   V Sehwag 26* (25b 1x4 1x6)   AD Mascarenhas 0.4-0-12-0

7.1

Tremlett to Sehwag, SIX, short and Sehwag uses the extra bounce to lift that clean over the head of third man. That's always the danger for Tremlett in one-day cricket

India 62/0   V Sehwag 35* (28b 1x4 2x6)   CT Tremlett 0.1-0-6-0

9.4

Collingwood to Sehwag, SIX, wonderful timing - not a lot wrong with the ball, but just too much width. Sehwag slapped it brutally up and over the point boundary. It's already an expensive miss

India 85/0   V Sehwag 46* (37b 1x4 3x6)   PD Collingwood 0.4-0-8-0

18.1

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

India 177/3   Yuvraj Singh 20* (7b 3x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 3.1-0-30-0

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

India 183/3   Yuvraj Singh 26* (8b 3x4 2x6)   SCJ Broad 3.2-0-36-0

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

India 189/3   Yuvraj Singh 32* (9b 3x4 3x6)   SCJ Broad 3.3-0-42-0

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

India 195/3   Yuvraj Singh 38* (10b 3x4 4x6)   SCJ Broad 3.4-0-48-0

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 ...

India 201/3   Yuvraj Singh 44* (11b 3x4 5x6)   SCJ Broad 3.5-0-54-0

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)   SCJ Broad 4-0-60-0

19.4

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

India 216/3   Yuvraj Singh 58* (15b 3x4 7x6)   A Flintoff 3.4-0-31-0
