Ashok Dinda301826.00103000
18.1 to SR Patel, no, Patel holes out straight to long-off! Dinda went for the full bunger, it was in the slot but Patel didn't middle it and sent the ball flat and straight into the welcoming arms of Rahane, a couple of yards in from the rope. 138/5
18.4 to TT Bresnan, Bresnan goes first ball, picks out Kohli coming in off the boundary at long-on! He had to plunge forward to take the catch, bags it well and he celebrates in the manner we've become accustomed to, eyes bulging, fists pumping. 139/6
Ravichandran Ashwin413318.25111300
3.1 to MJ Lumb, swept at, missed, strikes the pad and given out lbw it looked pretty adjacent to off stump, he was a reasonable way down with a good stride so maybe it might have gone down with the angle but with a bit of grip it probably would have hit the stumps, a fair enough decision. 21/1

10.1 to LJ Wright, floated up and heaved down the ground, didn't get to the pitch and that will be safely pouched at long-off! Wright skipped out and tried to belabour Yuvraj over the fence, came off the toe of the bat and he knew that was going to the fielder as soon as he hit it. 89/2
12.2 to AD Hales, slides on, Hales plays slightly the wrong line and is bowled! Double strike from Yuvraj, this didn't turn much, Hales advanced for a big ole blow down the ground and effectively played around it to lose middle pole. 99/3
12.4 to EJG Morgan, slogged straight up and Morgan is out too! Big wicket for India, Yuvraj gulling England's captain. It was flat, a bit quicker than Morgan expected maybe, and he sliced it high, high into the sky, the ball eventually lobbing gently to mid-on. 100/4

Jade Dernbach302709.0062130
Tim Bresnan302628.6671210
4.3 to G Gambhir, pulled away, nailed it this time has he, not quite because he finds deep square leg who takes a smart grab with two hands high above his head, the first wicket in international cricket for Bresnan since September. It was banged in short and Gambhir I thought had nailed it off the meat of the bat but he found the fielder. 42/1
4.6 to AM Rahane, tries to go over the infield but gets it high on the bat and mid on takes the catch that's a good chance taken retreating by Patel, a slower ball bouncer from Bresnan and Rahane mistimed the stroke badly having come down the pitch and spooned it up in the air. 44/2
Stuart Meaker3.502817.3093040
12.1 to V Kohli, bowled him, Kohli chops on! This stayed down, Meaker maybe rolled his fingers on it, the ball drifting back in from outside off and Kohli attempted a back-foot pull, it clipped the bottom of the bat and clattered into off stump, Meaker bellowing the full-blooded celebrations this time around. 110/4

Luke Wright302418.0051120
9.6 to Yuvraj Singh, back of a length ball, swung into the Indian night and taken on the boundary big blow for England. He took a step down the wicket and lifted it off the tow of the bat miles into the air, Meaker held on well at deep square leg. 93/3
