Match drawn

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

69.1

Nash to Strauss, no run, just a touch of bounce here, which is a surprise given how small Nash is

69.2

Nash to Strauss, 1 run, busy, industrious run-up and he lands this on middle, Strauss whips to leg

69.3

Nash to Shah, no run, left outside off

69.4

Nash to Shah, no run, again he leaves this alone. Touch of shape away

69.5

Nash to Shah, no run, Shah shoulders arms once more

69.6

Nash to Shah, no run, another extravagant leave by Shah to a little dibbly dobbler outside off

England 245/1   BP Nash 1-0-1-0

71.1

Nash to Shah, no run, wide of the off stump. Shah shuffles across and flicks to leg

71.2

Nash to Shah, 1 run, again Shah is walking miles across to the off side before he flicks this to midwicket

71.3

Nash to Strauss, 1 run, another easy run, just dropped out to midwicket

71.4

Nash to Shah, no run, well, well wide of Shah's off stump. No need for him to play at that

71.5

Nash to Shah, no run, again left alone. No swing on offer for Nash

71.6

Nash to Shah, no run, slapped to mid-off

England 251/1   BP Nash 2-0-3-0

73.1

Nash to Shah, no run, too wide, Shah chases but doesn't make contact

73.2

Nash to Shah, no run, across to that wide off stump line in a pre-meditated stride, but pushed straight into the covers

73.3

Nash to Shah, no run, more width, Shah is doing his best not to get frustrated

73.4

Nash to Shah, no run, left alone outside off stump

73.5

Nash to Shah, no run, still plugging away on an unreachable line. It's effective but not very pretty

73.6

Nash to Shah, no run, that one is close enough to block, and tails in a touch from outside off as well. A maiden over

England 253/1   BP Nash 3-1-3-0

75.1

Nash to Strauss, no run, defended solidly

75.2

Nash to Strauss, no run, on off stump, and driven straight back to the bowler

75.3

Nash to Strauss, no run, forward and defended into the covers

75.4

Nash to Strauss, no run, shorter and swished at, but Strauss can't connect properly

75.5

Nash to Strauss, FOUR, he's connected this time, but very nearly holes out to midwicket! Sarwan was the man, not Benn alas, and that clears his leap by a foot

75.6

Nash to Strauss, FOUR, short again and that's poor bowling. Strauss is into position in a flash and pulling hard behind square leg

England 262/1   BP Nash 4-1-11-0

77.1

Nash to Strauss, no run, outside off and keeps low again. I wonder if that's the infamous centre circle coming into play?

77.2

Nash to Strauss, 1 run, that'll do, a dink into the leg-side, and that's a coolly acknowledged ton-and-a-half

77.3

Nash to Shah, no run, a big step across the crease and defended into the covers

77.4

Nash to Shah, no run, outside off stump again, defended resolutely

77.5

Nash to Shah, FOUR, sweet. A compact drive, straight down the ground. He's waited patiently for that

77.6

Nash to Shah, no run, outside off, no stroke this time. Another over notched up

England 267/1   BP Nash 5-1-16-0

79.1

Nash to Shah, no run, on middle stump, Shah clouts it back to him

79.2

Nash to Shah, no run, prepares to absolutely murder this to cover but can only find mid-off. Gave it a fair old thwacking though

79.3

Nash to Shah, no run, good ball, cutting back into the right hander who defends

79.4

Nash to Shah, 1 run, cleverly played. He shuffled across to the off side, went back and pushed it off the back foot defensively before scampering through for a single.

79.5

Nash to Strauss, no run, firmly behind this on the back foot

79.6

Nash to Strauss, FOUR, ooh close! So close to inside-edging that onto his leg-stump. That was mighty close; I reckon it just shaved the stumps, too. You could hear a noise from the stump mic

England 276/1   BP Nash 6-1-21-0

81.1

Nash to Pietersen, no run, on middle-and-off, Pietersen shuffles across and tries to whip this to leg

81.2

Nash to Pietersen, no run, again, another whip to leg but he can't time it. That was remarkably slow, that delivery

81.3

Nash to Pietersen, no run, ignored outside off. Angled across him

81.4

Nash to Pietersen, no run, stands tall and punches this off the back foot

81.5

Nash to Pietersen, no run, cautiously defended

81.6

Nash to Pietersen, no run, and again it's wide of the off stump and left alone

England 277/2   BP Nash 7-2-21-0

142.1

Nash to Prior, no run, angled across Prior who strokes it powerfully to cover

142.2

Nash to Prior, FOUR, what a shot! He is a brilliant cover-driver, Prior, and that's absolutely drilled for four

142.3

Nash to Prior, no run, cautiously defended this time

142.4

Nash to Prior, 1 run, late cut and very nearly drags this into his stumps! That was mighty close indeed

142.5

Nash to Collingwood, no run, a touch of spit off the pitch which takes the splice of Collingwood's bat

142.6

Nash to Collingwood, no run, Collingwood drives this but inside-edges into his boot - and it bobbles up back to Nash who appeals. This could be out! But replays show the ball probably bashed into the ground, then the foot, and you can see the puff off dust

England 448/6   BP Nash 8-2-26-0

144.1

Nash to Collingwood, no run, another dibbly dobbly delivery pushed out to the off side

144.2

Nash to Collingwood, FOUR, outside off, Collingwood lifts this over midwicket for four. He could've hit that anywhere

144.3

Nash to Collingwood, no run, wide of the off stump - he can barely reach it - it's pushed out to cover

144.4

Nash to Collingwood, no run, better, tighter delivery which is defended

144.5

Nash to Collingwood, no run, off-driven powerfully to mid-off

144.6

Nash to Collingwood, no run, firmly defended

England 462/6   BP Nash 9-2-30-0

146.1

Nash to Prior, no run, guided out to cover

146.2

Nash to Prior, OUT, Prior tries to whack this over the top but skies it miles and miles in the air. Chanderpaul readies and steadies himself at mid-off to take an easy catch

MJ Prior c Chanderpaul b Nash 39 (84m 61b 6x4 0x6) SR: 63.93

146.3

Nash to Collingwood, no run, sweetly driven to mid-off

146.4

Nash to Collingwood, no run, wide of the off stump, as ever, and it's pushed out to the off side

146.5

Nash to Collingwood, no run, pushed out to the off side

146.6

Nash to Collingwood, 1 run, driven once more

England 468/7   BP Nash 10-2-31-1

148.1

Nash to Collingwood, 1 run, nuggety little flick - he has such a short backlift, Collingwood, and he barely seemed to lift the bat at all then.

148.2

Nash to Broad, 1 run, this keeps low but Broad keeps his eye on it, punching it out to the off side

148.3

Nash to Collingwood, 1 run, whipped from outside off to midwicket

148.4

Nash to Broad, no run, that's a much better ball, on the off stump and shaping back into Broad

148.5

Nash to Broad, no run, a touch too straight, allowing him to flick to leg

148.6

Nash to Broad, no run, angled to point

England 482/7   BP Nash 11-2-34-1
