ICC World Twenty20 - 21st match, Group E

England v India

India won by 18 runs

5.4

Pathan to Maddy, OUT, goes now - holing out to mid-on, who runs in from long-on to a straightforward chance

DL Maddy c Gambhir b Pathan 29 (22m 20b 3x4 1x6) SR: 145.00

England 53/1   VS Solanki 23* (14b 3x4 1x6)   IK Pathan 0.4-0-8-1

10.3

Pathan to Solanki, OUT, at last, India hold a catch! Solanki made room again, and swished up and over the off side. This time he couldn't get enough bat on it, and mid-off circled for an eternity before clinging onto a comfortable chance

VS Solanki c Sharma b Pathan 43 (41m 31b 5x4 1x6) SR: 138.70

England 96/2   KP Pietersen 20* (12b 2x4)   IK Pathan 1.3-0-14-2

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

England 126/3   PD Collingwood 11* (11b 1x4)   Harbhajan Singh 2.1-0-14-1

17.3

Singh to Shah, OUT, short and Shah swings towards his favourite midwicket boundary, but it's high on the bat and plops straight into the hands of the fielder! England lose another well-set batsman, and their predicament just gets worse

OA Shah c Joginder Sharma b Singh 21 (15m 13b 3x4 1x6) SR: 161.53

England 170/4   PD Collingwood 28* (18b 2x4 1x6)   RP Singh 3.3-0-27-1

17.5

Singh to Collingwood, OUT, moved outside off, went for a massive hoick over square leg, missed again. This time the bowler didn't. And that's comprehensively bowled

PD Collingwood b Singh 28 (32m 20b 2x4 1x6) SR: 140.00

England 170/5   A Flintoff 0* (0b)   RP Singh 3.5-0-27-2

19.5

Pathan to Wright, OUT, that's an incredible catch from Harbhajan on the long-on boundary! He reached up and back and plucked the six from thin air, inches inside the rope and right in front of the England dug-out! Risked life and limb and came up trumps!

LJ Wright c Harbhajan Singh b Pathan 16 (8m 9b 1x4 1x6) SR: 177.77

England 196/6   A Flintoff 4* (3b)   IK Pathan 3.5-0-33-3
