Ball-by-Ball Commentary


Match State: Day 1 start scheduled for 11am local time (10am GMT/15.30 IST)

       Good Morning!
       Welcome to Trent Bridge in Nottingham for the second npower Test
        match between England and India.
       England lead the four-Test match series 1-0 after beating India
        rather convincingly by 170 runs at Lord's.
       Both the teams have made some major changes.
       17-year-old Parthiv Patel makes his Test debut for India. Ajay
        Ratra has an injured toe.
       Harbhajan Singh replaces Anil Kumble.
       There are two debutants for England: Fast bowler Steve Harmison and
        opening batsman Robert Key.
       Ashley Giles has been left out, which also means that Dominic Cork
        plays.
       The news about the pitch is that, there is some dampness to it. It
        is not a bald one by any chance, there is enough grass to keep the
        fast bowlers happy.
       Sourav Ganguly has won the toss and elected to bat.
       The teams are as follows:
       England: MP Vaughan, RWT Key, MA Butcher, *N Hussain, JP Crawley,
        +AJ Stewart, A Flintoff, C White, MJ Hoggard, DG Cork, SJ
        Harmison.
       India: W Jaffer, V Sehwag, R Dravid, SR Tendulkar, *SC Ganguly, VVS
        Laxman, +PA Patel, AB Agarkar, Harbhajan Singh, Z Khan, A Nehra
       It is not a sunny morning here - a few clouds hanging around. The
        current temperature is around 17 degrees Celsius.
       The forecast is for some showers later in the day.
       Play will start in just about eight mins or so.
       Play is about to start here
       The first hour is going to be very important - India does not have
        a good record at Trent Bridge - least with the first wicket
        partnership
       The highest opening partnership for India at Trent Bridge is 34
        runs - between Pankaj Roy and NJ Contractor in 1959
       The umpires and players are in the middle
       Wasim Jaffer is to take strike, three slips, a gully and point.
        Matthew Hoggard has the new ball with him
       The Umpires: RE Koertzen (SA) and RB Tiffin (Zim)
       Here we are!

        fast delivery, a touch outside the off, Jaffer leaves it alone,
        ball did not swing too much, too close to the off stump for
        comfort, starts off with a maiden over!

       After electing to bat first - India have scored 61/2 off 28 overs
        in the first session
       Jaffer was the first batsman to be dismissed, bowled by Hoggard for
        a duck! Playing away from the body to a beautiful outswinger and
        inside edging it onto his stumps
       dravid played and missed on numerous outswingers and finally got an
        edge to one from Hoggard and Robert Key at first slip took a neat
        catch - Dravid made just 13
       Sehwag is unbeaten on 37, beaten a lot of times outside the off.
       Tendulkar took some 16 balls to get off the mark - has not looked
        all that good so far. Survived a very close call for lbw too. He
        is unbeaten on 10
       Hoggard has easily been the best bowler with the figures of 10-4-
        17-2
       Cork too got the ball to swing a great deal - bit was on the
        expensive side
       Debutant Harmison has been given a brief - go around the wicket and
        dig it in short - he has bowled four maiden over so far.
       Freddie was guilty of not attacking the batsman enough.
       India will be pleased that they have not lost more wickets before
        lunch.

       The umpires offer the light to the batsmen - they are only too
        happy to walk back
       Loud boos around the ground, it is getting a bit dark here for sure

       The final session of day-1 is to start in just about five  mins
       The umpires and players are in the middle
       We are all set for the re-start, Harmison to bowl right-arm over
        the wicket to Sehwag
       The light has not improved that much
  51.1 Harmison to Sehwag, no run, back of a length, outside the off, left

  51.3 Harmison to Sehwag, FOUR, short and wide outside the off, just
        can't do it to Sehwag, rocks back and cuts the ball in the air and
        to the deep backward point fence for four, moves to 93 now
  51.4 Harmison to Sehwag, no run, angling in to the batsman, gets right

       Sehwag is not out on 96, a boundary away from a Test hundred
  53.1 Harmison to Sehwag, FOUR, short and wide outside the off, cuts the
        ball in the air, Vaughan should have taken the catch, only gets a
        hand to it, ball goes past and into the fence at point for four
        and that is his hundred, well played Sehwag!
       That should go down as a missed opportunity

  53.3 Harmison to Sehwag, no run, angling in, pushed to the on side

       Freddie and Ganguly have had some personal battles in the middle -
        in the past, each trying to get the better of the other
  54.1 Flintoff to Ganguly, FOUR, digs this one short, begs to be hit,

        takes his chances - which makes his batting - very exciting.
  54.6 Flintoff to Sehwag, no run, sharp bouncer! Sehwag in some trouble
        trying to get out of its line

  55.2 Harmison to Ganguly, no run, defended

  55.4 Harmison to Ganguly, no run, and immediately to prove a point,
        Harmison gives Ganguly a lot of width outside the off, hit
        straight to the fielder

  55.6 Harmison to Ganguly, no run, rising delivery, outside the off,

        wicket - Matthew Hoggard
  56.1 Hoggard to Sehwag, no run, hint of outswing, defended
  56.2 Hoggard to Sehwag, no run, this time the genuine outswinger,

  56.4 Hoggard to Ganguly, no run, outside the off, defended
  56.5 Hoggard to Ganguly, FOUR, still getting the ball to swing in the
        air, bowled it a bit too full outside the off, Ganguly leans

        through mid-off for four.
  56.6 Hoggard to Ganguly, no run, outside the off, left alone

V Sehwag 105* (174b 18x4) SC Ganguly 17* (49b 3x4)

  57.1 Harmison to Sehwag, no run, now this is a fast delivery, almost at

        evasive action
  57.2 Harmison to Sehwag, one run, tucked behind square leg

       Bowling change: Craig White
       The ball is 59 overs old and it should get a bit of reverse swing
  59.1 White to Ganguly, no run, down the leg, late swing, through to
        Stewart
  59.2 White to Ganguly, one run, misfielded by Butcher at point, easy
        single
       White has been in impressive form for Yorkshire - both with the bat
        and ball, Hussain has not used him much today
  59.3 White to Sehwag, OUT: Bowled'm! Sehwag's feet going nowhere, plays
        down the wrong line, ball hits middle stump - Bingo! End of a good

       The delivery that cleaned up Sehwag was clocked around the 87 miles
        mark, there is nothing in cricket like a sight of the middle stump
        going for a walk!
  60.1 Hoggard to Ganguly, one run, taps the ball to Crawley on the on
        side and goes through for a risky single, direct hit would have
        got Ganguly
  60.2 Hoggard to Laxman, no run
  60.3 Hoggard to Laxman, no run
  60.4 Hoggard to Laxman, FOUR, juicy half volley outside the off, down on

        a rising delivery - fair amount of pace too, Laxman manages to
        keep it down

  61.1 White to Ganguly, no run, full and down the leg, Ganguly misses out
  61.2 White to Ganguly, one run, beaten by pace, playing a loose shot,
        thick inside edge and ball goes too close to the leg stump, almost
        drags it back onto the stumps

        sways away, loud shout for a no ball - the first of the day!
  61.3 White to Laxman, FOUR, short delivery, laxman goes for the hook, a

       The umpires offer the light to the batsmen - what happens next is -
        you know what! They walk back to the pavilion.
       Bad light stops play
       Play has not been called off for the day - we will be back as soon
        the light improves.
       Good Morning!
       Hello and welcome to a wet Trent Bridge in Nottingham for the
        second npower Test match between England and India.
       Today is the second day of the Test match, and things don't look
        good at all.
       It has been pouring down all night - and a lot of water has come
        down.
       It would take anything close to a couple of hours after the rain
        stops to get the ground ready.
       According to the groundsman, we might have a start sometime later
        in the day - probably close to the scheduled Tea time.
       It is going to be a long wait for the players and everyone as we
        wait for the sunshine here at Nottingham.
       Having said that, the forecast is not that good for the day - more
        heavy showers expected later in the day.
       We will keep you updated about the weather.

       There is a little bit of drizzle here, umpires and players go back
        in.
       1615 Hrs GMT: Update from Trent Bridge: It is still raining
       Hello and welcome back to Trent Bridge.
       This time it is to say good bye for the day. It is still raining
        here in Nottingham.
       Another short day's play, India have moved on to 302/8.
       We will be back tomorrow at 1000 Hrs GMT, 1530 Hrs IST. Even though
        the forecast for the next two days is not all that promising, let
        us hope for the best. Thanks for being with us. A very good
        evening to all.

Match State: Stumps - Day 2

       Good Morning!
       Hello and welcome to Trent Bridge in Nottingham. Today is the third
        day of the second Test.
       We have some good news for you, even though the skies are grey, we
        will have a start on time today.
       So no rain in Nottingham at this moment, though the forecast is for
        some showers later in the day.
       The maximum temperature for the day should be around 19 degrees
        Celsius.
       India will resume on their overnight score of 302/8. Harbhajan
        Singh and Zaheer Khan are the two batsmen.
       And with last man Ashish Nehra to come in, India would be more than
        happy if they could get to 350.
       The tourists would be hoping for some early break-throughs when
        England go out to bat.
       There is something in the track for the fast bowlers. Apart from
        Matthew Hoggard, no English bowler has been able to put pressure
        on the Indian batsmen.
       If Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra and Ajit Agarkar can make some early
        inroads, England would find themselves on the back foot.
       There is not much of a change to the track. After all the water
        that came down, there must be a great deal of moisture in it
       The umpires and players are in the middle. We are all set for the
        start.
       It is a gloomy summer day. Zaheer Khan is the batsman on strike.
        Andrew Flintoff is the bowler
       To bowl right-arm over the wicket
  91.1 Flintoff to Khan, no run, beaten, outside the off
  91.2 Flintoff to Khan, no run, well, it doesn't look like India getting
        to 350, late movement away, squares up the batsman and beats him
        completely
  91.3 Flintoff to Khan, no run, again, plays and misses outside the off -
        as three slips and two gullies wait for the edge.
  91.4 Flintoff to Khan, no run, fast delivery, just outside the off, goes
        right through the defence, through to Stewart
  91.5 Flintoff to Khan, no run, almost got him! Fired in straight, Zaheer
        Khan once again squared up, gets a bat on it, blocks it.
  91.6 Flintoff to Khan, no run, pace and extra bounce outside the off,
        left alone

        curving away late, Harbhajan Singh defends

        middle and off, hint of late swing too, gets right behind the line
        and blocks it
  92.4 Hoggard to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, full, wide of the off stump, big
        outswing on it, opens the face of the bat and runs it between
        slips and gully - down to third-man for four, useful runs!
  92.5 Hoggard to Harbhajan Singh, no run, big big outswinger again, left
        alone
  92.6 Hoggard to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, ooh! Plays at the big outswinger,
        gets a thick edge and the ball flies right between slips and gully
        for four, would have been an easy catch for the fourth slip

        left alone

End of over 96 (10 runs) India 333/8
A Flintoff 26-6-82-1 - Pavilion End
Z Khan 9* (18b 2x4) Harbhajan Singh 36* (20b 8x4)

       Harbhajan Singh has made 36 off just 20 balls, with the help of

 100.3 Harmison to Harbhajan Singh, OUT: Gone! Harbhajan Singh couldn't
        deal with the extra bounce from Harmison, gets a leading edge and
        ball goes in the air towards covers, Hussain run sin and completes

       India 356/9, Partnership of 61
       Harbhajan Singh  c Hussain b Harmison  54 (37b 10x4 0x6)

A Nehra 0* (1b) Z Khan 14* (30b 3x4)

       This (61 runs) is the highest 9th wicket partnership for India at
        Trent Bridge - beating the 60 added by R Dravid and BKV Prasad in
        1996
 101.1 Hoggard to Nehra, OUT: All over! Nehra nicks a beautiful outswinger
        through to Stewart - almost an unplayable delivery, would have got
        even a much better batsman with it, India bowled out for 357.

       India 357/10, Partnership of 1
       A Nehra  c Stewart b Hoggard  0 (2b 0x4 0x6)
       Z Khan 14* (30b 3x4) MJ Hoggard 35.1-10-105-4 (2w)

       India must be very happy to have scored 357 runs after electing to
        bat first on a track that helped the seamers a great deal
       Hoggard was easily the best bowler 35.1-10-105-4
       Even though Harmison picked up three wickets, English bowling gave
        away too many easy runs.
       Credit should also be given to Sehwag (106), Ganguly (68) and
        Harbhajan Singh (54)

        the catch, not out says Koertzen
   1.3 Khan to Key, no run, defended
   1.4 Khan to Key, no run, this boy has a safe pair of hands, takes the

        kid showing so much of enthusiasm

       Not much of a help for the Indian bowlers from this track. Mind
        you, there is still a lot of moisture in this track, it is just
        that Zaheer Khan and Nehra has got carried away - and have been

        is protection at the fence

        single, fifty partnership
       Umpire Tiffin gives Zaheer Khan the second official warning for

  30.3 Khan to Butcher, no run
  30.4 Khan to Butcher, four runs, played to covers, takes a couple of

        the bat
  40.4 Ganguly to Vaughan, FOUR, this is slaughter! Vaughan in prime form
        and in great touch, Ganguly offers a short pitched one, Vaughan
        would take that any day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, rocks

        four!
  40.5 Ganguly to Vaughan, no run, outside the off, pushed to covers

       Brilliant sunshine here at Trent Bridge - at the moment all the

       Patel standing back now
  44.1 Tendulkar to Vaughan, no run, outswinger, left alone
  44.2 Tendulkar to Vaughan, no run, big big outswinger, left alone

  44.4 Tendulkar to Vaughan, no run, this one swings back in, big banana

        Vaughan once again sweeps Harbhajan Singh with so much of ease

        the line of leg, defended

  48.5 Tendulkar to Butcher, one run, played down to long leg
  48.6 Tendulkar to Vaughan, two runs, driven so nicely through covers to
        Sehwag in the deep, takes on his throw, makes the second run look

  50.5 Harbhajan Singh to Butcher, one run, faster delivery, on the pads,
        played behind square for a single
  50.6 Harbhajan Singh to Vaughan, three runs, This shot says it all! The
        ease with which Vaughan has batted - that too against Harbhajan
        Singh, the spinner has not been able to pose any threat at all,
        slow turnign delivery, delicate late cut for three runs, 200 on
        the board.

End of over 51 (7 runs) England 201/1 (trail by 156 runs)
Harbhajan Singh 18-2-56-0 - Radcliffe Road End
MP Vaughan 130* (166b 16x4) MA Butcher 43* (99b 5x4)

       That is tea on day-3, England go in with 201/1 on the board, Robert
        Key the only man to be dismissed, dragging a short ball back onto
        the stumps after making 17 on Test debut
       Michael Vaughan has played at what must be said as - sublime best!
        Stroking the ball through covers and also through the on side for
        runs. He is unbeaten on 130 off just 166 balls, which is extremely
        good going in Test cricket.
       Mark Butcher has scratched around and survived a tough return catch
        that was put down by Harbhajan Singh.
       The Indian bowling has cut a sorry figure. The only bowler who has
        bowled well in this Test match is Matthew Hoggard.
       Young Pargiv Patel has kept very well indeed, there were a few
        sharp takes behind the stumps. The kid has a lot of talent.
       We will be back shortly after a cup of tea.

       Bowling change: Ashish Nehra
       There is still some shine here at Trent Bridge, though there is a
        large dark cloud making its way...
  52.1 Nehra to Butcher, FOUR, pushed firmly to mid-off, dear-oh-dear!
        Ajit Agarkar! Runs over the ball, allows the ball to go through

        man

       Ganguly does some fine tuning to the field
  54.5 Nehra to Vaughan, (noball) no run, yet another no ball

  56.3 Nehra to Hussain, one run, driven to covers, Harbhajan Singh

  57.1 Harbhajan Singh to Hussain, OUT: Got'm! Young Parthiv Patel has his
        first Test victim, Hussain going for a pre-meditated sweep, plays
        it a bit too early, ball kisses the gloves and pops up, Patel
        accepts the catch gleefully, all the players congratulate
        Harbhajan Singh

        Patel takes the catch, there might have been an edge, silly to be
        bowling no balls
  58.2 Nehra to Vaughan, FOUR, shocking stuff! Rubbish bowling this is, a
        long hop! And that too to a batsman on 142, Vaughan rocks back and
        hits the ball high towards square leg fence, one bounce and over
        the ropes!
  58.3 Nehra to Vaughan, no run, angling away, left alone
  58.4 Nehra to Vaughan, FOUR, Michael Vaughan take a bow! Glances this
        fine - to deep fine leg for four - that his 150 off just 187

       Umpires discussing the light. 9 overs left today.
       England offered the light and they take it.
       Mixture of boos and applause from crowd.  Not terribly dark at the
        moment.
       No lights on the light meter, though we can't tell if it is
        actually switched on
       Umpires staying out there for the time being to take readings and
        chat to the groundstaff.  Bails have been removed.
       Players doing warm-down exercises just inside the boundary,
        protected by a line of stewards.
       Wheeled covers now coming onto the ground, and that is officially
        it for the day.
       So join us again tomorrow at 1000 GMT for the fourth day of this
        Test, but for now from Trent Bridge, goodnight.

  94.2 Agarkar to Stewart, FOUR, this is simply superb batting against a
        clueless bowling, ove rpitched on the pads, struck just wide of
        mid-on, one of those Mark Waugh strokes, caressed all along the
        ground for four
       England have moved into the 400s - they are 405/5 now. Ganguly not
        at all enthused by what is going on, makes some changes to the

C White 16* (26b 3x4) DG Cork 17* (26b 4x4)

       127 runs scored in the first session - off just 24 overs. England
        lost the wickets of Stewart (87) and Flintoff (33), both bowled by
        Zaheer Khan in the same over.
       23 boundaries were hit in the session, remarkable indeed.
       England lead by 111 runs and are in a position to dictate terms to
        India.
       The fact that just 24 overs were boeld in the first session (which
        also includes 4 overs from harbhajan Singh) says a lot about the
        discipline.
       81 overs remain to be bowled in the day.
       Clearly the star of this session has been Alec Stewart.
       We will be back at 1240 Hrs GMT, 1810 Hrs IST

        the leg side.
 122.2 Khan to White, no run, and this one way outside the off, must be
        part of some plan, otherwise this is pathetic bowling.

        hardly any pace or threatening bounce, worked away behind square

Match State: Drinks

       Tendulkar bowled four good overs yesterday to Vaughan, was the only
        bowler to get some prodigous swing... And Ganguly has not given
        him another over. If Tendulkar is not carrying any injury of
        sorts, then there is something seriously wrong

 126.1 Khan to White, no run, forward in defence
 126.2 Khan to White, FOUR, ho ho ho! Absolutely terrible and dismal
        fielding at cover fence, Laxman the culprit, allows the ball to go
        through his legs, it was a cracking cover drive from White for
        sure, gifts three more runs, Fifty for White anyways!
       Now now now, this is also the fifty runs partnership for the ninth
        wicket!
 126.3 Khan to White, one run, pushed firmly to deep mid-off for a single
 126.4 Khan to Hoggard, no run, outside the off, pushed to covers
 126.5 Khan to Hoggard, no run, bowling around the wicket now, just can't
        produce one quality yorker, bangs in a bouncer, sways away, more
        work for the kid behind the stumps, diving take
 126.6 Khan to Hoggard, no run, short of a length, rising delivery, fended

        complete control of that stroke anyways, was reaching out for
        that.
  10.4 Hoggard to Tendulkar, no run, much better delivery, just outside
        the off, good shape on that, little curve away from the batsman,
        left alone nicely

        alone

       real battle going on here

  15.5 Harmison to Dravid, no run, outside the off, through to keeper
  15.6 Harmison to Dravid, four runs, driven to midoff, Hussain misfields!
        and then again slips trying to stop the ball within the boundary,
        Tendulkar runs like a race horse and eggs Dravid to complete an
        all run four - the first probably for an Indian... given how slow
        Indians are betwee

Match State: Stumps - Day 4

       Hello and welcome to Trent Bridge, where the weather - possibly the
        most crucial player in this Test - looks promisingly good.
       Not that India will have too many complaints if a massive
        thundershower were to draw the Test without a ball being bowled.
       Survival has been difficult over the past few days at the wicket,
        but if India had to pick two batsmen to stick it out at the
        wicket, they would be Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar.
       Tendulkar in particular seemed in feisty spirits yesterday, making
        a mockery of whatever field placements were thrown at him and
        striking 11 fours in the course of his stay at the crease
        yesterday.
       Dravid at the other end is the perfect foil, calmly rotating the
        strike and putting the bad balls away as if he were playing a club
        match in his native Bangalore.
       Nasser Hussain will be hoping that, on the morning of the final
        day, his bowlers can use the early morning juice to break this
        threatening partnership and get into the rest of the middle order.
       105 overs are to be bowled in the day, to make up for the
        iknterruptions on the previous days.
       Steve Harmison running up to complete his over from yesterday.
  19.3 Harmison to Dravid, no run, short and outside the off-stump, a
        loosener that Dravid is content to let go.
  19.4 Harmison to Dravid, one run, more of middle-stump line this time,
        and Dravid tucks it away to square leg for a single, bringing up
        India's 100.
  19.5 Harmison to Tendulkar, no run, just outside off-stump, ut too short
        to make any impact, so easily defended.
  19.6 Harmison to Tendulkar, no run, short and heading down leg, and
        Tendulkar ducks easily inside it and lets it past.

End of over 20 (1 run) India 100/2 (trail by 160 runs)

  20.1 Hoggard to Dravid, no run, nice length from Hoggard, just outside
        off-stump and seaming away a touch.
  20.2 Hoggard to Dravid, no run, a tad shorter this time, and Dravid
        tries to play it down. The ball squirts off the outside edge to
        gully for no run.
  20.3 Hoggard to Dravid, two runs, drifting down leg, and Dravid easily
        guides it to midwicket for two.
  20.4 Hoggard to Dravid, one run, drifting onthe pads yet again, and
        Tendulkar plays it away for one.
  20.5 Hoggard to Tendulkar, no run, on target, just on off-stump, and
        defended stoutly.
  20.6 Hoggard to Tendulkar, two runs, short and on middle stump, and
        Tendulkar wristily works it away to the onside for a brace.

  21.2 Flintoff to Dravid, no run, outside off stump and left alone.
  21.3 Flintoff to Dravid, no run, short and outside the off, and Dravid
        leaves it alone easily again.
  21.4 Flintoff to Dravid, FOUR, fuller this time, and Dravid bangs down
        on it. The ball squirts off the outside edge, runs away past
        gully, and goes to the third man fence for four.
  21.5 Flintoff to Dravid, one run, easy forward push to cover for a
        single.
  21.6 Flintoff to Tendulkar, no run, short and Tendulkar ducks under it
        easily.

        Hoggard yet again managing to extract prodigious outswing and seam
        movement as well.

        this time, Dravid watching it sail past harmlessly.
  22.3 Hoggard to Dravid, no run, shorter and on middle stump, and Dravid
        ducks under it.
  22.4 Hoggard to Dravid, one run, short ball on off, and Dravid gets up
        on his toes and steers it away to the offside for a single,
        bringing up the 100 partnership.
  22.5 Hoggard to Tendulkar, no run, outsdie the off, moving away.
  22.6 Hoggard to Tendulkar, one run, short and outside the off-stump, and
        although it is moving away even as Tendulkar hits it, there is
        enough bat on it. But Hussain has a deep sweeper on the cover
        fence, so the batsman gets just one.

  23.1 Flintoff to Tendulkar, no run, short ball on off, defended back to
        the bowler.
  23.2 Flintoff to Tendulkar, FOUR, short ball on middle stump, and
        Tendulkar works it uppishly to the midwicket fence, the ball
        keeping the fielder interested till it sidles over the rope.
  23.3 Flintoff to Tendulkar, no run, vengeful return from Flintoff. The
        bowler goes around the wicket and bangs the ball in short, the
        ball climbing just [ast Tendulkar's right shoulder.
  23.4 Flintoff to Tendulkar, no run, short again, but outside the off
        this time and heading fuirther away.

        Tendulkar lets it go past.

R Dravid 44* (70b 7x4) SR Tendulkar 63* (69b 12x4)

  24.1 Hoggard to Dravid, no run, what a beaut!! just on off-stump,
        seaming away ju-uu-uust a touch, making Rahul Dravid reach out for
        it. The batsman is beaten completely by that one.
  24.2 Hoggard to Dravid, no run, yet again Dravid is induced to play a
        stroke, even though the ball is swinging far outside the off.
  24.3 Hoggard to Dravid, no run, steered to the off this time, and
        Dominic Cork promptly cuts off any runs and keeps the presusre on
        the batsman.
  24.4 Hoggard to Dravid, no run
  24.5 Hoggard to Dravid, FOUR, and Dravid handles pressure wonderfully,
        as is seen from this stroke. Juicy half volleye outside the off,
        and Dravid times it superbly through the offside, the ball racing
        to the cover fence.
  24.6 Hoggard to Dravid, no run

End of over 25 (4 runs) India 120/2 (trail by 140 runs)

SR Tendulkar 63* (69b 12x4) R Dravid 48* (76b 8x4)

  25.1 Flintoff to Tendulkar, no run, short and outside the off, and
        Tendulkar steers it to gully, getting on his toes to play the ball
        down to the ground.
  25.2 Flintoff to Tendulkar, legbye: one run, short again and on leg-
        stump. Tendulkar looks to get out of the way, but the ball does
        much little than he thinks, hitting him on the elbow and running
        away to the legside for a leg bye.
  25.3 Flintoff to Dravid, no run
  25.4 Flintoff to Dravid, no run, fuller to Dravid, looking to make him
        drive. But Dravid is not tempted, shouldering arms comfortably.
  25.5 Flintoff to Dravid, no run, short again, Dravid keeps his eye on
        the ball all the time, and even when the ball is dying on him,
        Dravid is watching it and knows to get down further. Very well
        played.
  25.6 Flintoff to Dravid, FOUR, short and on leg-stump, and Dravid whips
        into the pull, putting the ball past Steve Harmison at square leg
        for a boundary. That is his fifty, and a very good one indeed.

A Flintoff 7-0-37-1 - Pavilion End
SR Tendulkar 63* (71b 12x4) R Dravid 52* (80b 9x4)

  26.1 Hoggard to Tendulkar, no run, swinging away outside the off-stump
        yet again, and Tendulkar goes for the drive but is beaten outside
        the off. Hoggard looking like he will be England's key bowler
        today.
  26.2 Hoggard to Tendulkar, legbye: two runs, the ball thuds into
        Tendulkar's pads, but it is heading down leg. In fact, it even
        runs away to fine leg for a couple of leg byes.
  26.3 Hoggard to Tendulkar, no run, on off stump, the ball not doing so
        much this time, and Tendulkar defends solidly.
  26.4 Hoggard to Tendulkar, three runs, full and drifting down legside,
        and this is meat and drink to Tendulkar. He is quick to whip it
        away towards midwicket, and although he does not get four for it,
        he gest three.
  26.5 Hoggard to Dravid, no run
  26.6 Hoggard to Dravid, no run, Dravid hit on the pads, but although the
        slips and the keeper go up in appeal, the ball is clearly heading
        down leg.

  27.1 Flintoff to Tendulkar, no run, short again, still around the
        wicket, and Tendulkar plays it down nicely, getting inside the
        line and managing to steer it past the short-leg fielder.
  27.2 Flintoff to Tendulkar, no run, a snorter again this time, rising
        into Tendulkar's body. The batsman gets on his toes to just play
        it down.
  27.3 Flintoff to Tendulkar, one run, fuller this time and on the pads,
        and Tendulkar flicks it towards fine leg. Hoggard on the ropes
        runs around and fields nicely, grestricting it to a single.
  27.4 Flintoff to Dravid, no run
  27.5 Flintoff to Dravid, no run, Dravid expects the ball to rise and
        sail outside the off, but the bounce is far lower, and the ball
        hits Dravid on his lowered hands.
  27.6 Flintoff to Dravid, (noball) no run, short yet again, with similar
        line, and this time the ball does rise enough for the bastamn to
        avoid playing it.
  27.6 Flintoff to Dravid, no run, pitched short again, but the bounce is
        low, and Dravid drops his hands yet again, only to find the ball
        following his hands.

  28.1 Cork to Tendulkar, FOUR, blatantly a loosener from Cork, but that
        doens't mean Tendulkar won't take advantage. Drifting on the pads,
        and Tendulkar works it away with felicity to the square leg fence.
  28.2 Cork to Tendulkar, one run, short and outside off, and Tendulkar
        tries to cut it away. The timing is not quite there, and he gets
        only one to deep point.
  28.3 Cork to Dravid, no run
  28.4 Cork to Dravid, FOUR, short and just outside the off-stump, but the
        length is so bad that Dravid can control the late cut to third man
        for a boundary.
  28.5 Cork to Dravid, no run, not as short this time, and the line is
        perfect, so Dravid is brought forward on teh front foot in
        defence, only for the ball to seam away at the last minute and
        beat him.
  28.6 Cork to Dravid, no run, further outside the off, and Dravid watches
        it sail past.

  29.1 Flintoff to Tendulkar, no run, short and on the off, played down
        quietly to the offside.
  29.2 Flintoff to Tendulkar, no run, outside leg, and Tendulkar swivels
        on his bat foot, watching it sail past to the wicket-keeper.
  29.3 Flintoff to Tendulkar, bye: one run, Tendulkar goes too far across
        to play at that one, and the bal eludes the bat and runs away for
        a bye.
  29.4 Flintoff to Dravid, no run
  29.5 Flintoff to Dravid, no run, short and rising so fast that Dravid
        can just get under it to let it past.
  29.6 Flintoff to Dravid, FOUR, fuller this time, and the minute the
        bowler strays - this time onto the pads - Dravid is quick to pick
        him off, flicking it away to the long-on fence. Flintoff gives
        chase himself, but the ball outpaces him.

  30.2 Cork to Tendulkar, FOUR, half volley on off-stump, and Tendulkar
        drives wonderfully through mid-off, beating the sole offside

        stump, and Tendulkar unleashes his cut through the point region.

  30.4 Cork to Tendulkar, FOUR, Cork errs in line this time, drifting down
        leg, and Tendulkar wristily glances it away to the onside, just
        behind square. Cork not doing too well here.
  30.5 Cork to Tendulkar, no run, on target, and applause from the crowd
        as Cork doesn't concede any runs off that ball.

        into the legside for a single, keeping the strike.

        Tendulkar expansive drive goes nowhere. The turn is enough to clip

Match State: Lunch - Day 5

       And that brings the first session to a close. Statistically, India
        have just lost one wicket, but what a wicket! England would
        probably have settled for removing Tendulkar before lunch, and
        they did, surprisingly courtesy Michael Vaughan.
       Rahul Dravid is stil at the crease, shutting up shop once Tendulkar
        was dismissed. He is accompanied by Ganguly, who looked nice
        during his stay at the crease, striking some sweet boundaries en
        route to 24.
       India still trail by 49 runs, and barring any terrific catastrophe,
        they should avoid the innings defeat quite easily.
       But England are still in with a shot to win this game, and India's
        batsmen - Dravid, Ganguly and vVS Laxman most of all - will have
        to make sure that they leave Trent Bridge today still only one
        down in the series.
       Will they do that? Stay with us after lunch to find out.
       Welcome back to Trent Bridge after lunch, where Matthew Hoggard is
        just getting ready to bowl.
  48.1 Hoggard to Dravid, no run, short and outside the off, letf alone.
  48.2 Hoggard to Dravid, no run, short again, but there is some hint of
        swing for Hoggard, even directly after lunch.
  48.3 Hoggard to Dravid, no run, fuller this time, almost in the
        blockhole, and Dravid steers it away to the off.
  48.4 Hoggard to Dravid, no run, great excitement as it appears that
        Dravid nicks a Hoggard outswinger behind to Stewart. There is a
        definite noise, but umpire Russell Tiffin shakes his head
        vigorously.
  48.5 Hoggard to Dravid, FOUR, rubbing salt into the wound now, Dravid
        tickles one through the slip cordon to the third man fence.

        merely helps it along, touching it through to the boundary.
  92.3 Harmison to Agarkar, no run, short and a tad wide, and Agarkar
        essays a cut shot. He is immediately angry with himself, because
        it is too close to cut.
  92.4 Harmison to Agarkar, no run, on target, and defended stoutly.
  92.5 Harmison to Agarkar, legbye: FOUR, prdigious movement for Harmison,
        nipping back sharply and rapping Agarkar on the pads. The ball is

  93.3 Flintoff to Agarkar, FOUR, sweetly, sweetly timed! just a tad short
        and outside the off, and Agarkar forces it away beautifully,
        keeping it down and driving through the cover point region.
  93.4 Flintoff to Agarkar, wide: no run, short and wide outside the off
        stump. Agarkar has a dart at it, but cannot reach, and the umpire
        calls a wide, the first of the innings.
  93.4 Flintoff to Agarkar, wide: no run, wide yet again, the bowlers
        trying to put it out of reach of the batsmen.
  93.4 Flintoff to Agarkar, no run, closer to the stumps this time, and
        seaming further in, and Agarkar leavs well enough alone.
  93.5 Flintoff to Agarkar, three runs, nice shot, a mere defensive push
        but loaded with timing, and the ball races through the covers,
        bringing Agarkar three more.

  94.1 Harmison to Ganguly, no run
  94.2 Harmison to Ganguly, no run, short and wide outside the off stump,
        and Ganguly - on 99 - has an airy dart at that one. It beats him,
        but he is quick to indulge in some self-reprimand.
  94.3 Harmison to Ganguly, OUT: tragedy strikes! Ganguly, perhaps still
        jittery from the previous flirt with a moving delivery, plays
        outside the line of one, inside edging it onto his stumps.

       The off stump is uprooted, and Ganguly - no doubt enormously
        disappointed at the end of what was a fine, fine innings that
        deserved three figures - walks off almost immmediately.

        ducks under it easily enough.
  94.5 Harmison to Patel, no run
  94.6 Harmison to Patel, no run, around the wicket this time, and Patel

        towards square leg.

 101.1 Vaughan to Agarkar, OUT: on target right away, and the ball turns

 102.1 Harmison to Harbhajan Singh, no run, raps Harbhajan Singh on the
        pads on the way to the wicket keeper down the legside, but the
        stifled appeal dies out quickly.
 102.2 Harmison to Harbhajan Singh, no run
 102.3 Harmison to Harbhajan Singh, no run, an attempted push goes awry
        when the ball just rebounds on to the pad.
 102.4 Harmison to Harbhajan Singh, no run, that goes trhough Harbhajan,
        the ball beating the inside edge.
 102.5 Harmison to Harbhajan Singh, OUT: full and swinging, and Harbhajan
        Singh has no answer to this one. He plays all over it, and the
        furniture is considerably rearranged. Harbhajan goes, and England
        may not quite know what to make of this now.

       England finally ends the agnoy, calling off play realising that
        neither side has any chance at a win in the remaining 10
        overs.Parthive Patel walks out unbeaten after a nice innings of
        19.
       England sportingly allows the 17 year old Patel to walk in first,
        everybody very obviously wishing the youngster well and pleased at
        his success in this match. A very pleasant example of
        sportsmanship from England to end this Test.
       And with that ends the second Test of this four-match series, India
        fighting back after a dismal bowling performance to draw the game
        honourably, fighting till the last drop.
       Rahul Dravid's peerless hundred will be the highlight of this
        innings, made first in the company of Sachin Tendulkar and then
        Sourav Ganguly, epitomising every quality that he has come to lend
        to the Indian middle order  - stability, resilience and styli
       Tendulkar, approaching something near his best after a long hiatus,
        threw it all away in a sloppily expansive drive, falling to part-
        timer Michael Vaughan for 92. His captain fell even closer to a
        fine century - on 99, edging a Harmison delivery onto the
       stumps.
       The lower middle order was no less stubborn, with Ajit Agarkar and
        Parthiv Patel in particular helping India edge closer to safety in
        this match and go to Leeds still only one Test down.
        India, as in the first Test, made their higher total in the second
        innings - if only they could replicate that form in the first
        essay.
       Much can be said of the bowling in this match, with neither side
        fully managing to make use of the helpful conditions.
       Matthew Hoggard in fact was the most impressive bowler in this
        Test, although he can count himself desperately unlucky not to
        come out with more.
       Michael Vaughan, the Man of the Match, played a splendid hand in
        England's first innings, scoring 197 stylish runs before returning
        to emerge as surprise wicket-taker with two wickets.
       The npower Test series now moves to Vaughan's home ground of
        Headingley, Leeds, when the third Test starts there on the 22nd of
        August. Join us then for at 10:00 GMT and 15:30 IST 9:00 BST. Till
        then, goodbye.
