Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
145.5OUTChawla to Anderson, out Caught by Pujara!! Sharp catch and that's Chawla's 4th wicket! Flighted ball on the legs, Anderson works it to the on side but Pujara, at forward short leg, shows good reflexes and catches it. The ball nearly popped out but he held on to it with his elbow. That ends England's innings. Anderson c Pujara b Chawla 4(17)330/10
143.4OUTChawla to Swann, out Lbw!! Chawla has the last laugh in this over. This was pretty plumb too. Flat delivery, pitches on middle and doesn't turn, Swann looks to reverse sweep and misses it. The ball would have gone on to hit middle and leg, that ends a very imporant knock from Swann. Swann lbw b Chawla 56(91) [4s-6 6s-2]325/9
143.3SIXChawla to Swann, SIX, smashed! That adds to Chawla's frustration. Flighted delivery, Swann comes on the frontfoot and smashes it high and over long on325/8
142.4OTHERAshwin to Swann, 1 run, FIFTY for Swann. Frustration for India but elation for Swann and the England dressing room. Defends it to point region and runs across, removes his cap and shows-off to the dressing room. How vital will this knock turn out to be?319/8
142.3FOURAshwin to Swann, FOUR, superb shot. Swann is showing some attacking skills now. Comes out of his crease and lofts it straight over mid off for a boundary318/8
140FOURChawla to Swann, FOUR, smashed down the ground to long on, well flighted again, Swann comes on the frontfoot and drives it hard between Chawla and long on307/8

Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
140.1OUTPanesar to Ojha, out Bowled!! No celebrations from Panesar even though he is getting a wicket after 50 overs. That says it all - England don't really want wickets here. Lot of turn from outside off, Ojha looks to defend but gets an inside edge onto the stumps. Will India declare? No. Ojha b Panesar 3(32)317/9
130.1OUTSwann to Chawla, out Bowled!! England have fought back splendidly. The last hour has changed the game around quite dramatically. Tossed up from round the wicket and turning away a bit, Chawla presses forward to defend but is beaten by the turn and it hits the top of off stump. That will be stumps on day 3. Chawla b Swann 1(2)297/8
129.1OUTAnderson to Dhoni, out Dhoni Run Out!! Dhoni run out (Alastair Cook) 99(246) [4s-8 6s-1]295/7
124OUTAnderson to Ravindra Jadeja, out Lbw!! That was as plumb as it gets. Nipping in sharply from way outside off, keeping a little low too. Jadeja is struck low on the front pad and that would have crashed into middle stump. Anderson is all pumped up. That's his 4th wicket. Ravindra Jadeja lbw b Anderson 12(31) [4s-2]288/6
121.4FOURAnderson to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, nipping in from outside off, Jadeja tries to jab it on the offside but it keeps low and hits the bottom of the bat before rolling between Prior and the man standing at slip to the boundary286/5
119.2FOURBresnan to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, streaky but gets Ravindra Jadeja a boundary. It was short and outside off. Jadeja tries the cut but gets a thick outside edge that flies past the lone man at slip280/5
