Tim Bresnan903614.00324000
18.4 to AM Rahane, that is some catch! Kieswetter lunges to his right to grab a thick outside edge with one hand! The ball was full from Bresnan and Rahane reached for it and drove away from his body. England have stormed into this match, and how.. 80/3
Steven Finn1024724.70387010
17.1 to G Gambhir, bowled off the inside edge! Gambhir tried to cut a short of a length ball off the back foot, it was a touch too close to him and he played it on to his stumps. 80/1
17.6 to V Kohli, Kohli hasn't offered a shot and has lost off stump! That ball landed on a good length outside off stump and cut in off the pitch, Kohli moved forward and lifted his bat out of the way, only to the watch the ball come back at him and hit the top of off. It was too full to leave, so Kohli wouldn't have expected that to cut back off the pitch. Double strike from Finn.. 80/2
Stuart Meaker1006516.50347130
27.2 to MK Tiwary, caught behind! Tiwary pushed forward at good length ball that held its line outside off and got a nick through to Kieswetter, easy catch. 123/4
Samit Patel905736.33222200
43.4 to RA Jadeja, Jadeja falls to a great catch! He ran down at the bowler, who sent the ball down wide of off. Jadeja wasn't quite to the pitch and ended up swiping across the line to send the ball towards midwicket, where a leaping Bell held the stinging chance cleanly. 206/6
45.4 to R Ashwin, Ashwin holes out at long off! He used his feet and tried to lift this down the ground, but didn't quite get to the pitch and didn't fully go through with the shot. An easy catch for the fielder. 215/7
49.2 to P Kumar, but now he perishes in the pursuit of another boundary. This was perhaps a little shorter and flatter from Patel, and Praveen was cramped for room as he targeted the leg side again. He could only get the ball as far as Bairstow, who took a well-judged catch at long on. 259/8

Ravichandran Ashwin902833.11332000
22.6 to IR Bell, and another! The innings is losing its way as Bell gets a thin edge through to Dhoni as he played off the back foot.. 137/3
36.2 to SC Meaker, again Meaker misses the glance to leg, this time to a quicker ball, and is struck in front. There's a huge appeal, and he's sent on his way!. 174/9
36.6 to ST Finn, there we go, end of the match and the clean sweep for England. Finn sweeps across the carrom ball and the top edge loops straight up to be easily taken by Dhoni. 176/10
Manoj Tiwary502815.60174020
31.5 to TT Bresnan, chipped straight to the man at cover! This was a really harmless delivery from the part-time legspinner, and all Bresnan could do was chip it straight to Raina. An awful shot, and India inch closer to the series whitewash. 156/7
Ravindra Jadeja803344.12303100
21.4 to C Kieswetter, gone! Double strike for India. They are back in the game. Kieswetter is beaten by an arm ball and there was little doubt about that. Hitting middle half-way up. 134/2
23.3 to IJL Trott, it's four! This is now a proper collapse. Beautiful bowling from Jadeja as he tossed it up to lure the drive, which Trott obliges by playing and gets a edge to slip. 137/4
25.5 to JM Bairstow, the game of skittles continues! Bairstow didn't really have a clue. He tried to go over the leg side, against the turn, and gets a thick outside edge that loops to backward point. 141/5
35.1 to SR Patel, got him! Wonderful bowling from Jadeja. He ripped this one pretty hard, it gripped and zipped off the surface to bounce and touch Patel's glove on the way through to Dhoni. 167/8
Varun Aaron301916.3393010
20.2 to AN Cook, done him! The change works and India have their breakthrough. Cook was caught on the crease and the ball squeezed past the inside edge to take off stump. It may also have kept a fraction low. 129/1
Suresh Raina40912.25191010
30.4 to RS Bopara, there goes another one! An odd shot from Bopara. He got right across to off stump and set himself for a big sweep, even as Raina trundled in from round the wicket. Ball zipped past bat and clattered into leg stump to spark Indian celebrations. 155/6
