Wide and India win.
Dhoni and Gambhir shake hands before accepting the congratulations from the Pakistan fielders. It wasn't a close game in the end but the packed house seem to enjoy it a lot. Hopefully, we would get similar good crowds for the main tournament. That's it from us. And so the warm-up games are done and dusted with. The real action begins on June 5th. Join us then. Alvida!
full pitched delivery and Dhoni, who usually bludgeons and biffs boundaries, caressed it gently, smoothly down the ground
from round the stumps, short in length, bouncing in, tapped to backward point
sliced away to point region
fuller, on the off stump, defended towards backward point for a quick single and Malik went for the non-striker's end but misses and it runs away to the boundary! Fifty up for Gambhir who has used the occasion to spend some time and get some runs
the high bouncer ..... Asad Rauf no balls it.
the bouncer down the leg side
bangs in a bouncer, pulled down to fine leg
cutting in to the middle, defended to midwicket
full in length and outside off stump, Dhoni flays it through covers ... hit on the up
fullish but slips down the leg side
Rohit exits the scene after playing a fine hand. He went for the swat-pull but got the top edge. Up she swirled behind midwicket and Ahmed Shezhad ran back.. The ball seemed to fall safely before him but he dived out to hold on to a very good catch. Fine innings comes to an end
moves outside leg, Aamer follows him, Rohit tries to swat flick it away ala Gibbs but doesn't connect
tries to walk down, Aamer hurls in a bouncer, Gambhir short-arm pulls it to backward square leg
full in length, outside off stump, opens the bat-face and glides it away to wide third man
another bouncer, on the middle stump line, Gambhir goes down under
fires in a bouncer , ducked under
slightly short, turning in from outside leg, pulled away to long leg
stays back to work it to fine-leg
runs down the track to drive to long-off for a single
