Highlights
Praveen Kumar to Cook, FOUR!!, A very good start for PK, this was nipping away from a good length and took the edge as Cook poked at it, it flew well to the left of Raina at second slip and he gets off the mark with a streaky boundary
Praveen Kumar to Cook, out Bowled!! Praveen Kumar draws first blood, poor shot from Cook, he was cramped up for room once more but looks to cut it, gets an inside edge instead and drags it on, great start this for India. Cook b Praveen Kumar 4(10) [4s-1]
Praveen Kumar to Kieswetter, FOUR!!, Praveen Kumar errs in line just a bit, on the middle and leg, Kieswetter shuffles a bit and tucks it down very fine for a boundary, neatly done
Vinay Kumar to Trott, FOUR!!, top shot from Trott, it was pitched up and well outside off, he leans forward and opens the face of the bat to get between cover and point for another boundary
Vinay Kumar to Trott, FOUR!!, another one in the same area, this time he eases it in the gap comfortably, no fielder had a chance there, that one sped to the boundary
Praveen Kumar to Kieswetter, out Lbw!! That was as plumb as it gets, nipping in and Kieswetter is caught in the crease as he tries to keep it out, is also a little late on the shot and replays show that it would have hit the top of middle, Kieswetter's struggle has come to an end, he was definitely not in his elements today and PK is delighted. Kieswetter lbw b Praveen Kumar 6(19) [4s-1]
Vinay Kumar to Trott, FOUR!!, That was majestic, was in absolute control, it was full and outside off, Trott leans forward and creams it through extra cover for another boundary, very well played

Highlights
Anderson to Patel, FOUR!!, Loverly shot! It was a regulation half volley on off stump, Patel's bat came as straight as a ram-rod and once the ball met the bat, it went racing away straight down the ground, past the stumps, the umpire and Rahane, Patel can play those exquisite strokes and suddenly throw it away, but he needs to play a big one for India today
Bresnan to Rahane, FOUR!!, short and Rahane looks a pretty good player of the short ball, rocks back and puts the pull shot away, hit well and Rahane will get his first boundary of the innings
Bresnan to Rahane, FOUR!!, words exchanged between Rahane and Bresnan, but Rahane just smiles and gets on with it. Rahane getting a bottom edged pull wide of fine leg, it kept low and Rahane crouched to put it away, swivelled and then helped it along
Broad to Rahane, FOUR!!, capitalises on the full offering outside off by smashing it straight back over Broad's head, was there to be hit and Rahane didn't miss out. Rahane looks to be a very good talent - one from the Rahul Dravid school of batting - treating each ball on its merits
Broad to Patel, FOUR!!, brilliantly done! Patel might be a short man, but he is one of the best players of the short ball in this Indian side, swivelling on to the backfoot and pulling a chest higgh short ball wide of fine leg, a couple of bounces over the ropes, superbly done by the pint sized Patel
Anderson to Patel, FOUR!!, down leg and Patel had to get some bat on it, which he did, by swivelling on the pull and putting it away, fine leg was too wide and he had no chance. India moving along quite well - this has been a very good opening stand
Broad to Rahane, FOUR!!, the 50 of the stand comes up with a good flick, it was on middle stump and Rahane intentionally hit it up and over mid on
Broad to Rahane, FOUR!!, now shows another dimension to his batting by charging out and giving himself room to go inside out, sliced over cover and he will get another boundary
Anderson to Patel, FOUR!!, SMG calls that an innovative shot. Can't disagree with him more. That shot has been played in ODIs from ages. It was on a short of length outside off, Patel arched his back and then just guided it with an open face wide of third man
Anderson to Patel, FOUR!!, now steers it softly and to the same third man region, it was expertly done by Patel who calmly tapped on it as the ball was passing his bat, it was outside off and a delicate dab from Patel will get him consecutive boundaries
Dernbach to Rahane, FOUR!!, beautiful hit! Length ball outside off and Rahane went up and over mid on with a clean swing of the bat, it was there to be hit and Rahane hit it superbly, one bounce over the ropes
Dernbach to Patel, FOUR!!, wonderful pull shot again, it was short and heading towards the head of Patel who swivelled to crunch it towards the vacant deep square leg fence, one bounce over the ropes, that shot should give Patel a lot of confidence
Broad to Rahane, out Caught by Patel!! Broad again, that man who was India's nemesis in the Test series has provided the break for England. A very good short ball and Rahane is an instinctive puller, he fails to keep the top edge down and Samit Patel didn't have to move an inch at fine leg. End of a promising innings from Rahane. He looked in top nick till he departed. Rahane c Patel b Broad 40(44) [4s-6]
Broad to Dravid, out Caught by Kieswetter!! Well, well. The Third umpire has gone on the basis of sound here, he believes there was a faint nick that Hot spot did not pick and Dravid has to begin the long walk back, big wicket this for England and Broad, they are fighting back well. Dravid c Kieswetter b Broad 2(6)
Dernbach to Patel, FOUR!!, short again from Dernbach, no real pace on it though, Patel swivels in the crease and pulls it hard, finds the gap too and gets it wide of the man at backward square leg, was in complete control of that, top shot
Dernbach to Patel, 2 runs, just outside off, Patel dabs it down to third man and takes a couple to bring up his 4th ODI FIFTY, it has been a gutsy innings and spunky too, he needs to make this start count now
Bresnan to Patel, FOUR!!, Excellent shot again, the short one and Patel continues to go for the pull, plays it superbly, rolls his wrists over and gets it wide of the man at deep square leg, top shot
Bresnan to Patel, FOUR!!, Bresnan tries another short one and Patel goes for the pull again, even better this time, well wide of the man at deep square leg and the ploy to pepper him with short ones is clearly not working
Dernbach to Kohli, FOUR!!, that was asking to be hit and Kohli obliges, dug in short with no real pace, Kohli had enough time to rock back and pull it handsomely through mid wicket for another boundary
Dernbach to Patel, FOUR!!, angled in from round the wicket now, the mid on was up in the circle and Patel just chipped it wide of that man, timed it nicely too and picks up another boundary, very good batting this
Patel to Patel, FOUR!!, the calculated assault continues, this one was tossed up and outside off, Patel picked his spot and sweeps it hard in the air through mid wicket for another boundary
Trott to Patel, FOUR!!, poor bowling this from Trott, drags it short on a slow track and Patel does not miss out, goes for the full blooded pull and sent it racing to the mid wicket fence
Trott to Kohli, FOUR!!, short and outside off, Kohli backs away a bit and steers it square on the offside, does well to get it past point and picks up another boundary
Broad to Kohli, FOUR!!, edge. four. Short ball from Broad, Kohli rocks back and goes for the pull, gets a top edge that flies over the keeper's head.
Anderson to Patel, out Caught by Kieswetter!! No 100 for Parthiv. Wicket number 200 for Anderson. Oh boy, he deserved a century! This was bowled full and wide from round the stumps, Parthiv is tempted into the drive, only manages a thick edge to the keeper. No hot spot required for those. Anderson has a few words to say to Parthiv as he walks off - certainly not 'well played, young man'.Patel c Kieswetter b Anderson 95(107) [4s-12]

Broad to Kohli, FOUR!!, edge. four. Short ball from Broad, Kohli rocks back and goes for the pull, gets a top edge that flies over the keeper's head.
Anderson to Patel, out Caught by Kieswetter!! No 100 for Parthiv. Wicket number 200 for Anderson. Oh boy, he deserved a century! This was bowled full and wide from round the stumps, Parthiv is tempted into the drive, only manages a thick edge to the keeper. No hot spot required for those. Anderson has a few words to say to Parthiv as he walks off - certainly not 'well played, young man'.Patel c Kieswetter b Anderson 95(107) [4s-12]
Anderson to Raina, FOUR!!, superb shot! Fullish from round the wickets, Raina goes on his knees and plays the inside out drive over cover for a boundary
Anderson to Kohli, 1 run, FIFTY for Kohli. His 16th in ODIs, gets there with a push to point. Mr. consistent in ODIs continues his good form!
Patel to Kohli, FOUR!!, poor ball and Kohli gives it what it deserves. Short and slow on middle, he goes back and pulls it over mid wicket. Too easy for a man battnig on 50+
Patel to Kohli, out Bowled!! Four and a wicket! Flat and just outside off, Kohli goes for the cut but didn't have enough room for that shot, ends up getting an inside edge onto the stumps. Good innings from Kohli comes to an end. Kohli b Patel 55(73) [4s-4]
Broad to Dhoni, FOUR!!, shot! Fractionally short around off, Dhoni goes back quickly and cuts it hard through point for a boundary. Powerful bottom hand!
Broad to Raina, FOUR!!, good shot. Not so good fielding. This was angled across around off, he goes back and steers it wide of point, Dernbach runs across from third man and puts in the slide only to parry it to the fence. Broad is not impressed at all
Broad to Raina, SIX!!, give him a blue jersey and he will do this to you! Broad troubled Raina in the Test series, but it is a completely different ball game now! Nothing wrong with the ball - a normal back of a length delivery around off, Raina clears his frontfoot and smashes it over long on. Way over long on.
Dernbach to Raina, SIX!!, where has that gone?! Massive six that! Poor delivery though - full and down the leg, asking to be hit, Raina swings his bat and deposits it into the fine leg fence for a maximum
Bresnan to Dhoni, FOUR!!, that bottom hand! Fullish on the middle and leg, he stays in the crease and swings it along the ground to deep square leg fence
Dernbach to Raina, out Caught by Cook!! Clever bowling! Bowls the slow bouncer from round the stumps, Raina waits and waits and waits before playing the pull shot, only manages to hit it straight to short fine leg where the skipper takes a dolly. Entertaining contribution from Raina comes to an end. Raina c Cook b Dernbach 38(29) [4s-2 6s-2]
Bresnan to Dhoni, out Caught by Kieswetter!! Goes in search of the big stroke. Good bowling this - he knows that MS is strong through the on side and bowls it wide outside off, Dhoni looks to pick it up from there and smash it over the on side but gets a thin edge to the keeper. Dhoni c Kieswetter b Bresnan 33(36) [4s-2]
Bresnan to Ashwin, out Bowled!! Ashwin comes. Ashwin goes. Very good death bowling from Bresnan who is on a hat-trick now. Perfect yorker around off, Ashwin gives himself some room and looks to steer it through the off side, misses and finds his off stump disturbed. Ashwin b Bresnan 0(1)
Anderson to Patel, FOUR!!, Loverly shot! It was a regulation half volley on off stump, Patel's bat came as straight as a ram-rod and once the ball met the bat, it went racing away straight down the ground, past the stumps, the umpire and Rahane, Patel can play those exquisite strokes and suddenly throw it away, but he needs to play a big one for India today

Patel to Kohli, out Bowled!! Four and a wicket! Flat and just outside off, Kohli goes for the cut but didn't have enough room for that shot, ends up getting an inside edge onto the stumps. Good innings from Kohli comes to an end. Kohli b Patel 55(73) [4s-4]
Broad to Dhoni, FOUR!!, shot! Fractionally short around off, Dhoni goes back quickly and cuts it hard through point for a boundary. Powerful bottom hand!
Broad to Raina, FOUR!!, good shot. Not so good fielding. This was angled across around off, he goes back and steers it wide of point, Dernbach runs across from third man and puts in the slide only to parry it to the fence. Broad is not impressed at all
Broad to Raina, SIX!!, give him a blue jersey and he will do this to you! Broad troubled Raina in the Test series, but it is a completely different ball game now! Nothing wrong with the ball - a normal back of a length delivery around off, Raina clears his frontfoot and smashes it over long on. Way over long on.
Dernbach to Raina, SIX!!, where has that gone?! Massive six that! Poor delivery though - full and down the leg, asking to be hit, Raina swings his bat and deposits it into the fine leg fence for a maximum
Bresnan to Dhoni, FOUR!!, that bottom hand! Fullish on the middle and leg, he stays in the crease and swings it along the ground to deep square leg fence
Dernbach to Raina, out Caught by Cook!! Clever bowling! Bowls the slow bouncer from round the stumps, Raina waits and waits and waits before playing the pull shot, only manages to hit it straight to short fine leg where the skipper takes a dolly. Entertaining contribution from Raina comes to an end. Raina c Cook b Dernbach 38(29) [4s-2 6s-2]
Bresnan to Dhoni, out Caught by Kieswetter!! Goes in search of the big stroke. Good bowling this - he knows that MS is strong through the on side and bowls it wide outside off, Dhoni looks to pick it up from there and smash it over the on side but gets a thin edge to the keeper. Dhoni c Kieswetter b Bresnan 33(36) [4s-2]
Bresnan to Ashwin, out Bowled!! Ashwin comes. Ashwin goes. Very good death bowling from Bresnan who is on a hat-trick now. Perfect yorker around off, Ashwin gives himself some room and looks to steer it through the off side, misses and finds his off stump disturbed. Ashwin b Bresnan 0(1)
Anderson to Patel, FOUR!!, Loverly shot! It was a regulation half volley on off stump, Patel's bat came as straight as a ram-rod and once the ball met the bat, it went racing away straight down the ground, past the stumps, the umpire and Rahane, Patel can play those exquisite strokes and suddenly throw it away, but he needs to play a big one for India today
Bresnan to Rahane, FOUR!!, short and Rahane looks a pretty good player of the short ball, rocks back and puts the pull shot away, hit well and Rahane will get his first boundary of the innings
Bresnan to Rahane, FOUR!!, words exchanged between Rahane and Bresnan, but Rahane just smiles and gets on with it. Rahane getting a bottom edged pull wide of fine leg, it kept low and Rahane crouched to put it away, swivelled and then helped it along
Broad to Rahane, FOUR!!, capitalises on the full offering outside off by smashing it straight back over Broad's head, was there to be hit and Rahane didn't miss out. Rahane looks to be a very good talent - one from the Rahul Dravid school of batting - treating each ball on its merits
Broad to Patel, FOUR!!, brilliantly done! Patel might be a short man, but he is one of the best players of the short ball in this Indian side, swivelling on to the backfoot and pulling a chest higgh short ball wide of fine leg, a couple of bounces over the ropes, superbly done by the pint sized Patel
Anderson to Patel, FOUR!!, down leg and Patel had to get some bat on it, which he did, by swivelling on the pull and putting it away, fine leg was too wide and he had no chance. India moving along quite well - this has been a very good opening stand
Broad to Rahane, FOUR!!, the 50 of the stand comes up with a good flick, it was on middle stump and Rahane intentionally hit it up and over mid on
Broad to Rahane, FOUR!!, now shows another dimension to his batting by charging out and giving himself room to go inside out, sliced over cover and he will get another boundary
Anderson to Patel, FOUR!!, SMG calls that an innovative shot. Can't disagree with him more. That shot has been played in ODIs from ages. It was on a short of length outside off, Patel arched his back and then just guided it with an open face wide of third man
Anderson to Patel, FOUR!!, now steers it softly and to the same third man region, it was expertly done by Patel who calmly tapped on it as the ball was passing his bat, it was outside off and a delicate dab from Patel will get him consecutive boundaries
Dernbach to Rahane, FOUR!!, beautiful hit! Length ball outside off and Rahane went up and over mid on with a clean swing of the bat, it was there to be hit and Rahane hit it superbly, one bounce over the ropes
Dernbach to Patel, FOUR!!, wonderful pull shot again, it was short and heading towards the head of Patel who swivelled to crunch it towards the vacant deep square leg fence, one bounce over the ropes, that shot should give Patel a lot of confidence
Broad to Rahane, out Caught by Patel!! Broad again, that man who was India's nemesis in the Test series has provided the break for England. A very good short ball and Rahane is an instinctive puller, he fails to keep the top edge down and Samit Patel didn't have to move an inch at fine leg. End of a promising innings from Rahane. He looked in top nick till he departed. Rahane c Patel b Broad 40(44) [4s-6]
Broad to Dravid, out Caught by Kieswetter!! Well, well. The Third umpire has gone on the basis of sound here, he believes there was a faint nick that Hot spot did not pick and Dravid has to begin the long walk back, big wicket this for England and Broad, they are fighting back well. Dravid c Kieswetter b Broad 2(6)
Dernbach to Patel, FOUR!!, short again from Dernbach, no real pace on it though, Patel swivels in the crease and pulls it hard, finds the gap too and gets it wide of the man at backward square leg, was in complete control of that, top shot
Dernbach to Patel, 2 runs, just outside off, Patel dabs it down to third man and takes a couple to bring up his 4th ODI FIFTY, it has been a gutsy innings and spunky too, he needs to make this start count now
Bresnan to Patel, FOUR!!, Excellent shot again, the short one and Patel continues to go for the pull, plays it superbly, rolls his wrists over and gets it wide of the man at deep square leg, top shot
Bresnan to Patel, FOUR!!, Bresnan tries another short one and Patel goes for the pull again, even better this time, well wide of the man at deep square leg and the ploy to pepper him with short ones is clearly not working
Dernbach to Kohli, FOUR!!, that was asking to be hit and Kohli obliges, dug in short with no real pace, Kohli had enough time to rock back and pull it handsomely through mid wicket for another boundary
Dernbach to Patel, FOUR!!, angled in from round the wicket now, the mid on was up in the circle and Patel just chipped it wide of that man, timed it nicely too and picks up another boundary, very good batting this
Patel to Patel, FOUR!!, the calculated assault continues, this one was tossed up and outside off, Patel picked his spot and sweeps it hard in the air through mid wicket for another boundary
Trott to Patel, FOUR!!, poor bowling this from Trott, drags it short on a slow track and Patel does not miss out, goes for the full blooded pull and sent it racing to the mid wicket fence
Trott to Kohli, FOUR!!, short and outside off, Kohli backs away a bit and steers it square on the offside, does well to get it past point and picks up another boundary
Broad to Kohli, FOUR!!, edge. four. Short ball from Broad, Kohli rocks back and goes for the pull, gets a top edge that flies over the keeper's head.
Anderson to Patel, out Caught by Kieswetter!! No 100 for Parthiv. Wicket number 200 for Anderson. Oh boy, he deserved a century! This was bowled full and wide from round the stumps, Parthiv is tempted into the drive, only manages a thick edge to the keeper. No hot spot required for those. Anderson has a few words to say to Parthiv as he walks off - certainly not 'well played, young man'.Patel c Kieswetter b Anderson 95(107) [4s-12]
Anderson to Raina, FOUR!!, superb shot! Fullish from round the wickets, Raina goes on his knees and plays the inside out drive over cover for a boundary
Anderson to Kohli, 1 run, FIFTY for Kohli. His 16th in ODIs, gets there with a push to point. Mr. consistent in ODIs continues his good form!
Patel to Kohli, FOUR!!, poor ball and Kohli gives it what it deserves. Short and slow on middle, he goes back and pulls it over mid wicket. Too easy for a man battnig on 50+
Patel to Kohli, out Bowled!! Four and a wicket! Flat and just outside off, Kohli goes for the cut but didn't have enough room for that shot, ends up getting an inside edge onto the stumps. Good innings from Kohli comes to an end. Kohli b Patel 55(73) [4s-4]
