Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150  | Overs 151-200

69.2

Taylor to Pietersen, 1 run, and where's this gone? A pokey, nervy jab from outside off and he gets a thick inside edge

England 242/2   KP Pietersen 1* (1b)

70.1

Powell to Pietersen, no run, well wide of the off stump, Pietersen leaves it alone

70.2

Powell to Pietersen, no run, again, Pietersen can comfortably leave this alone

70.3

Powell to Pietersen, no run, pats this out to mid-off

70.4

Powell to Pietersen, no run, a little straighter - not much, but enough that Pietersen can tuck him to midwicket

70.5

Powell to Pietersen, FOUR, on-driven for four. A bit of a slappy, across-the-line stroke but he's got such a good bat that it earns him four

70.6

Powell to Pietersen, no run, an extravagant leave by Pietersen, as ever

England 246/2   KP Pietersen 5* (7b 1x4)

72.1

Powell to Pietersen, no run, driven, but another inside-edge onto the pads. Pietersen's feet aren't yet moving

Powell to Pietersen, no run, on the pads and flicked off the hip, but can't beat short leg

72.3

Powell to Pietersen, no run, pushed into the covers

72.4

Powell to Pietersen, no run, driven with intent into the covers, but lacking the requisite timing

England 247/2   KP Pietersen 6* (13b 1x4)

73.1

Nash to Pietersen, no run, good length to start, defended with respect

73.2

Nash to Pietersen, 2 runs, flicked off the pads, and Pietersen wants two straightaway. That was a bit risky, but the throw was wayward

73.3

Nash to Pietersen, no run, outside off, swinging away, and that is a fluffy little waft from KP. A nothing shot

73.4

Nash to Pietersen, no run, outside off, begging to be thwacked, but Pietersen is like a doberman on a choker faced with a basket of fluffy kittens, as he watches that lavisciously into the keeper's gloves

73.5

Nash to Pietersen, no run, outside off again. Ok, I probably mispelt "lavishwhatever" but there's not enough time between balls to check dictionary.com

73.6

Nash to Pietersen, 1 run, driven into the covers, and through they scuttle

England 250/2   KP Pietersen 9* (19b 1x4)

77.2

77.6

Nash to Pietersen, no run, a filthy full toss slapped with equal amounts of filth straight to cover

England 259/2   KP Pietersen 13* (30b 1x4)

83.2

Taylor to Pietersen, no run, teased outside off. Pietersen ignores

83.3

Edwards to Pietersen, no run, too wide. And swinging wider still

86.3

Edwards to Pietersen, 1 run, onto the hook - the dreaded hook! - and this is skied miles and miles in the air to deep midwicket. A horrid shot and Taylor comes scurrying in, diving, but couldn't quite cling on

England 278/3   KP Pietersen 21* (54b 2x4)

87.1

Powell to Pietersen, FOUR, well, this barely hits the cut strip, so Pietersen just slaps him through cover for four

Powell to Pietersen, 1 run, nudged to leg for a strolled single

England 295/3   KP Pietersen 27* (57b 3x4)

88.1

Edwards to Pietersen, 3 runs, good ball, good thinking to send in this yorker. It's clipped through midwicket though, as it came out on the full

England 301/3   KP Pietersen 32* (64b 3x4)

90.5

Edwards to Pietersen, 1 run, short and lifting into Pietersen's ribs. Spicy delivery but reasonably well played in the end, out to square leg

England 307/3   KP Pietersen 33* (65b 3x4)

91.1

Taylor to Pietersen, no run, a very, very gentle loosener. Outside off, too short to tempt a stroke, left alone

91.2

Taylor to Pietersen, no run, outside off, no stroke offered again

91.3

Taylor to Pietersen, 2 runs, on the pads, too gentle again, and tapped with minimum fuss to midwicket

91.4

Taylor to Pietersen, no run, that's the ball. Almost another Jamaica exocet this time - a late-outswinging yorker that Pietersen just gets his bat down on in time. Luckily for him he wasn't looking to be aggressive, or that could have been curtains

91.5

Taylor to Pietersen, no run, full length outswinger, curls onto the bat

91.6

Taylor to Pietersen, no run, full length again, a good finish to the over, he's finding that probing length now. Pietersen can only defend

92.2

92.3

Edwards to Pietersen, 1 run, a hop into line, and a dink into the leg-side

92.6

Edwards to Pietersen, no run, a horrible swish, that was wide and going wider, and Pietersen dropped down on one knee and flashed extravagantly at thin air

England 312/3   KP Pietersen 36* (74b 3x4)

94.1

Edwards to Pietersen, 1 run, that's a bit of an adventurous run. Pietersen was back on his heels as he tapped to short cover, but Collingwood responded quickly to the call

94.3

Edwards to Pietersen, FOUR, on the pads and clipped away with gusto. There's no cutting that off

94.4

Edwards to Pietersen, OUT, full length, on the stumps, Pietersen attempts to whisk through the leg side again and that looks utterly plumb on first viewing! Umpire Tiffin agrees, Pietersen does not, and so it goes to a referral. But that is so out it's almost come in again through the other side!

KP Pietersen lbw b Edwards 41 (117m 77b 4x4 0x6) SR: 53.24

England 318/4   KP Pietersen 41 (77b 4x4)
