    0.4 gone! India strike early. Cook won't believe he's done that, it was short and wide but the England captain picked out backward point with a cut. Good catch above his head by Jadeja, early problems for the visitors 0/1
    1.5 and another! England in a mess, Kieswetter pushes hard outside off at a good-length delivery and sends a regulation outside edge towards the lone slip and it's neatly taken 0/2
    9.6 breakthrough! Just as England were fighting back Trott feels outside off stump and gets a simple edge through to Dhoni. Nice line from Vinay, but slightly lazy from Trott after such a good start 48/3
    25.2 huge wicket! Two quick strikes. How quickly the game can change. Pietersen drives at a wide delivery and gets a thin edge through to Dhoni who takes an excellent catch close to the ground. The umpires check with TV that it carried and it's fine 121/5
    24.5 gone! The partnership ends. Turns nicely from middle and leg to straighten on Bopara who hasn't got much of a stride in and Billy Bowden quickly raises the finger 121/4
    42.6 caught at long off! Again Bairstow used his feet, but this time he went through with the stroke. He sliced under it just a little, however, and Kohli was the man waiting under the ball as it plummeted down short of the boundary. That's actually a really good catch, he wasn't far from the rope but judged it well. Good all-round cricketer, this Kohli ... 211/7
    41.4 gone! Yadav's scattergun approach has proved effective. This one pitched short of a good length, Patel moving back to play it, but kept really low and struck him plumb in front. A promising stand is broken, and India move into the ascendancy once more 207/6
    45.6 an easy catch for Raina! Bresnan tried to loft a full delivery down the ground but didn't come close to timing it, scooping the ball tamely towards deep mid-off, where an unflustered Raina leapt to pluck it out of the air. There goes another one! 229/9
    45.1 off stump cartwheels! Kumar has struck straight away, picking up his third wicket with a length delivery that kept just a shade low to beat Swann's attempted glide to third man, crashing into the top of off stump. England are in serious danger of being bowled out short of their 50 overs. 227/8
    not out
    48.2 silly running! The ball was flicked to leg and there was certainly an easy single on offer. Dernbach certainly thought it was only one, he ran past the stumps at the non-striker's end, but Finn was set on a second run. A total communication breakdown, and even as Dernbach set off in the vain hope of reaching the striker's end before the ball, Finn was turning around with the same idea. Needless to say, Dernbach is easily run out and England are out for 237 237/10
