Pakistan innings
Bhuvneshwar to Hafeez, FOUR, edged and wide of 2nd slip! That one straightened after pitching, it was angled in initially, Hafeez poked at it and got a thick outside edge, Ashwin at 2nd slip dives to his right but the ball goes wide of him and into the third man boundary
Bhuvneshwar to Hafeez, FOUR, Oh dear! The ball finds the edge, but it doesn't find Ashwin's hands seconds later. Hafeez was lured forward, he went hard at it, thick outside edge and it flew past Ashwin who dived to his right, races away to the third man boundary, Bhuvneshwar shouldn't lose heart, it was a great ball
Dinda to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, you can't bowl at his pads! He has been in terrific touch, it was risky, there was Ashwin waiting for the catch a few yards in front of the conventional square leg position, but Nasir Jamshed clipped it well over the fielder, a couple of bounces and it reaches the boundary
Bhuvneshwar to Hafeez, FOUR, too much width on offer, friendly pace too, Hafeez walks down the wicket and steers it between point and cover for a boundary
Bhuvneshwar to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, not the first time they've got a boundary off an edge, Nasir Jamshed plays at one outside the off stump with not much feet movement, goes wide of 2nd slip, Dinda runs to his left and dives, touches the ropes as he pulls the ball back, four more!
Bhuvneshwar to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, on the pads this time and pays the price. He has not been too consistent today, he has done really well in patches though, too easy for Jamshed this time, glances it to the fine leg boundary
Ishant to Hafeez, FOUR, back of a length and around the off stump, Hafeez punches it between point and cover, great timing, he will get four more. Hafeez is slowly starting to get better
Dinda to Hafeez, FOUR, elegant! Superb shot that, full and swinging back in, Hafeez drives it between mid on and mid wicket, neatly done, Dinda stands in disbelief
Dinda to Hafeez, FOUR, runs have started to come with ease now! Hafeez gets forward and pushes it through cover, he has been placing the ball in the gaps all day, even the edges, but this time a well timed shot, moves to 37 already
Ashwin to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, quick outfield huh? That one pitched on leg and middle, turned across taking the outside edge, goes past Kohli at first slip, it races away
Ishant to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, almost Saeed Anwaresque from Nasir Jamshed! Bad delivery, on the pads and that's a gift for Jamshed who just whipped it away forcefully, beating deep backward square easily. Timing was top notch
Bhuvneshwar to Hafeez, FOUR, top shot! Goes back and across, shifts the weight onto the backfoot, Kumar drags it short, all three stumps were visible as Hafeez shuffled across and pulled it over mid wicket, four more, moves to 48 with that
Bhuvneshwar to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, Nasir Jamshed waits for the ball to come to him, opens the face of the bat and guides it wide of the keeper, deliberately played, he knew that there was nobody at slips, runs are coming thick and fast now
Raina to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, Nasir Jamshed stays back and slaps the short ball through extra cover, in the gap and they get another boundary
Raina to Hafeez, 1 run, has been a good innings from Hafeez, gets to his 15th ODI fifty, first against India. He has a hundred against India though. Hafeez flicked it towards deep square leg for a single
Raina to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, short and punished! Nasir Jamshed pulls it handsomely over mid wicket, one bounce over the ropes, this is turning out to be dangerous, the partnership between these two
Ashwin to Nasir Jamshed, 1 run, edged again! Doesn't carry to Sehwag at first slip. Umpteenth time an edge hasn't caused any problem today, the ball bounces in front and goes wide of Sehwag, they collect a single
Ravindra Jadeja to Hafeez, FOUR, played late and played very well, around the off stump, came at a nice height, Hafeez just pushed it wide of Sehwag at first slip, it will run away to the boundary
Ashwin to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, Nasir Jamshed comes down the wicket and wristily chips it over mid wicket, gets to his 7th ODI fifty, 2nd against India, it's been a good knock despite all the edges
Ravindra Jadeja to Hafeez, FOUR, top edge and safe! Hafeez was looking to sweep, only managed to get a top edge, falls in no man's land, Dinda runninng behind the ball gives a funny chase taking a leap before diving, doesn't save!
Ashwin to Hafeez, FOUR, Hafeez gets under the ball, lofts it over mid off as he plays it on one knee, he is starting to get very dangerous, beautifully played this!
Ashwin to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, wrong line for the field, Nasir Jamshed gets on his knee and tickles it to the fine leg boundary, the fielder was pretty wide, boundaries are flowing at the Eden Gardens
Ravindra Jadeja to Hafeez, out Bowled!! There comes the much needed breakthrough. Rush of blood from Hafeez. He tries to sweep hard a delivery that pitched on middle stump but completely missed it. The middle stump is knocked out and the crowd lets out a huge roar. Ravindra Jadeja is pumped up too. Hafeez b Ravindra Jadeja 76(74) [4s-10]
Ravindra Jadeja to Azhar Ali, out Azhar Ali Run Out!! Hilarious sequence of events there. Azhar Ali looked to sweep, it went off the glove, Ravindra Jadeja thought he'd got his man and appealed for an LBW, Billy Bowden shook his head and said no, between all this Azhar Ali was looking for a non existant single, the ball had just gone a couple of yards to the left of him, Nasir Jamshed sends him back, Dhoni runs, throws the ball to Sehwag and he does the rest. In fact, Azhar Ali slipped while turning back which led to his downfall. Azhar Ali run out (Dhoni/Sehwag) 2(10)
Dinda to Nasir Jamshed, SIX, Nasir Jamshed breaks the shackles. Two wickets had fallen in succession and there was some pressure on Nasir Jamshed, he pulls and pulls it hard, over deep square leg for a maximum, top shot! Poor ball too from Dinda
Raina to Younis Khan, out Lbw!! Raina gets the breakthrough. However, it is a poor decision from the umpire. Flatter delivery zipping through on middle and off, Younis Khan attempts the sweep and gets a big inside edge, Raina appeals but umpire Vineet Kulkarni does not spot it and raises the finger, Younis trudges off disappointed. Younis Khan lbw b Raina 10(20)
Ashwin to Misbah-ul-Haq, out Lbw!! Pakistan are in dire straits here. Tossed up delivery and Ashwin bowls it with a pause again, it spins back in as Misbah plunges forward and looks to glance it to fine leg, the ball hits the inside half of the front pad and Ashwin appeals, umpire Bowden raises the finger, that would have gone on to comfortably hit the stumps. Misbah-ul-Haq lbw b Ashwin 2(5)
Dinda to Nasir Jamshed, SIX, terrific shot from Jamshed, he was struggling with his timing for some time now but this will give him confidence, length ball on middle, Jamshed stays on the front foot and swings through the line to launch it over the sightscreen straight down the ground
Ashwin to Nasir Jamshed, FOUR, what a way to get to his third ODI century, tossed up delivery just outside off, Jamshed gets underneath the delivery and smokes it over mid off for a boundary, all three ODI tons have come against India and he becomes the second Pakistani player after Zaheer Abbas to score three consecutive ODI tons against India, Jamshed has established a solid love affair with India
Ravindra Jadeja to Nasir Jamshed, out Stumped!! Finally, India manage to dismiss Nasir Jamshed. Flighted delivery and keeping it on the stumps, Jamshed charges down the track and gets beaten in the flight, the ball sneaks through Jamshed's defence and Dhoni fluffs the take the first time, however, Jamshed was so far down the track that Dhoni gets a second chance, he gets a second chance as Dhoni whips the bails off with his left hand with Jamshed well short of the crease, well played. Nasir Jamshed st Dhoni b Ravindra Jadeja 106(124) [4s-12 6s-2]
Ravindra Jadeja to Kamran Akmal, out Caught by Sehwag!! Jadeja is causing havoc out there. Tossed up delivery just outside off, it lures Kamran Akmal into the drive but the ball spins away late, he gets a thick outside edge that flies to first slip, Sehwag latches onto it at the second attempt and Jadeja roars out in delight. Kamran Akmal c Sehwag b Ravindra Jadeja 0(2)
Yuvraj to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, horrible ball from Yuvraj, he drags this really short on the stumps, Malik sizes it up and shovels the pull shot to the straightish mid wicket fence
Yuvraj to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, nicely done by Malik, quick and slow delivery outside off, Malik opens the bat face and uses the pace to guide it past Sehwag at first slip, it races away on this Billiards table like outfield for a boundary
Ravindra Jadeja to Umar Gul, SIX, Gul did this a lot to South Africa during the T20 World Cup, tossed up delivery just outside off, Gul slog sweeps it into the stands at deep mid wicket, the connection was superb
Dinda to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, run-out chance missed, short in length delivery outside off, Malik cuts it to backward point and takes off for a suicidal single, Jadeja lines up and has a shy at the striker's end but he misses, Gul was a goner by a long way if that had hit
Ishant to Shoaib Malik, out Caught by Yuvraj!! Ishant's wonderful day continues. Full and slow delivery just outside off, Malik looks to drive it inside out over extra cover, the bat face turns on impact and he miscues it completely, tamely holes out to Yuvraj at extra cover who takes a simple catch. Shoaib Malik c Yuvraj b Ishant 24(30) [4s-2]
Ishant to Umar Gul, FOUR, poor ball from Ishant, a high full toss on the middle and leg stump, Gul helps it along the way by tickling it to the fine leg fence, the ball possibly slipped out of Ishant's hand
Bhuvneshwar to Ajmal, FOUR, amazing shot from Ajmal, short in length delivery outside off, Ajmal uses the bat as a ramp and scoops it to fine leg, couple of bounces and into the boundary boards
Bhuvneshwar to Ajmal, out Caught by Sehwag!! Bhuvneshwar gets his first wicket and he will heave a huge sigh of relief. Short delivery and aimed at the body, Ajmal is cramped for room as he attempts the pull, he goes through with the shot but mistimes it completely, Sehwag at square leg jogs to his right to take a simple catch. Ajmal c Sehwag b Bhuvneshwar 7(7) [4s-1]
Ishant to Mohammad Irfan, out Bowled!! Mohammad Irfan's height goes against him. A fast and straight delivery on middle, Mohammad Irfan does not get behind the line and the ball knocks the middle stump back, Pakistan will be disappointed with this collapse. Mohammad Irfan b Ishant 0(2)
India innings
Mohammad Irfan to Gambhir, leg byes, FOUR, back of a length delivery on the pads, Gambhir looks to flick, it goes off the thigh pad down to the fine leg fence. First boundary for the home side.
Mohammad Irfan to Sehwag, FOUR, back of a length delivery outside off, Sehwag gets on his toes again, punches it through cover, finds the gap to perfection and gets four for that shot. He did not try to hit that hard at all.
Junaid Khan to Gambhir, FOUR, back of a length delivery outside off, Gambhir goes back and cuts hard, it races across the field to the backward point boundary. M Irfan was just a few feet away at third man, he puts in a despairing dive, but can't get a hand to that
Mohammad Irfan to Sehwag, FOUR, typical Sehwag, short and outside off, Sehwag made just a bit of room and cut it fiercely past point. The ball was past the rope before the third man fielder could even move.
Junaid Khan to Sehwag, FOUR, this is a lovely shot from Sehwag, good length delivery outside off, Sehwag gets forward and drives it through point for a boundary. Excellent timing and even better placement.
Junaid Khan to Gambhir, out Bowled!! That's not the best ball he's bowled today, but gets a wicket nonetheless. Full and wide outside off, Gambhir went forward to drive, did not move his front foot and got an inside edge which crashed into the stumps. A disappointed Gambhir makes his way back. Gambhir b Junaid Khan 11(25) [4s-1]
Junaid Khan to Virat Kohli, out Caught by Kamran Akmal!! What a brilliant catch by Kamran Akmal. Good length delivery down the leg side, Kohli needlessly played at that, tried to flick and got a bit of wood on that. Akmal dived full length to his left and caught it while he was air-borne. Breath-taking catch by a man who has dropped many a sitter. Virat Kohli c Kamran Akmal b Junaid Khan 6(9) [4s-1]
Umar Gul to Sehwag, out Lbw!! And he is out LBW next ball. Lethal delivery from Gul, back of a length delivery pitching outside off, it came in sharply and hit Sehwag on the pads, bang in front of the middle stump. The opener had not moved his feet at all and was caught on the crease. The only question to be asked was if it would have missed leg stump. The umpire has no problems with that, raises the finger immediately. Sehwag lbw b Umar Gul 31(43) [4s-3]
Umar Gul to Yuvraj, out Caught by Kamran Akmal!! That's actually a very tame dismissal. Short and angled in from around the wicket, Yuvraj looked to pull, got an under edge on that one. It went straight to Akmal who took it cleanly. India in deep trouble, yet again. Yuvraj c Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 9(19)
Hafeez to Raina, FOUR, poor delivery, darts it on the pads, Raina gets a faint tickle on that, it runs down the turf to the fine leg fence. That is Raina's first boundary.
Hafeez to Raina, out Stumped!! 5th wicket down. Good delivery from Hafeez - flights it up and invites Raina forward, Raina drags his backfoot out of his crease and reaches out for it but the ball spins past him, Kamran Akmal is quick behind the stumps and whips the bails quickly. Raina tries to drag his foot back but he doesn't ground it. Raina st Kamran Akmal b Hafeez 18(42) [4s-1]
Shoaib Malik to Ashwin, out Stumped!! Ashwin's struggle ends. The pressure was getting too big for him and he has succumbed. Gently tossed up delivery, Ashwin hurries down the track and plays a nothing shot, the ball goes straight past his bat and he is miles out of his crease. Dhoni is watching from the other end. Can someone just stay with him? Ashwin st Kamran Akmal b Shoaib Malik 3(22)
Ajmal to Ravindra Jadeja, out Caught by Junaid Khan!! The pressure gets another wicket. Nicely tossed up again, Jadeja puts his frontfoot forward and looks to loft, connects well but hits it straight to mid on. Pakistan are closing in on a series victory. Ravindra Jadeja c Junaid Khan b Ajmal 13(23)
Ajmal to Bhuvneshwar, out Lbw!! He's given him! That's a brave but a good decision. Flat delivery pitches on middle and turns in, Bhuvneshwar is stuck in the crease and gets hit on the pads in front of leg, would have probably gone on to clip leg stump. Bhuvneshwar lbw b Ajmal 0(2)
Ajmal to Dinda, out Lbw!! And another LBW! Ajmal is running through the tail. But that's a bad decision - it pitched outside leg. Fired in from round the wicket again, Dinda gets hit on the back pad, but that pitched outside leg. Dinda can be disappointed, but that won't matter. Dinda lbw b Ajmal 0(2)
Mohammad Irfan to Dhoni, FOUR, goes after Mohammad Irfan straightaway. Back of length and outside off, Dhoni gets forward and lofts him over mid off. A boundary scored after 100 balls.
Mohammad Irfan to Dhoni, no run, catch dropped by Shoaib Malik. This was full and angled in, Dhoni uses his bottom hand and lofts it flat to long on, Malik runs across and gets there but puts it down. They don't run as well
Junaid Khan to Dhoni, SIX, length ball and Dhoni helps himself to 6 runs. Comes forward and smashes it flat wide of long on
Junaid Khan to Dhoni, FOUR, smashed! Another low full toss, Dhoni expects it and picks it on the full, hits it hard between long off and the bowler
Junaid Khan to Dhoni, FOUR, that's another boundary, very full and outside off, Dhoni slices it to deep backward point for a boundary
Junaid Khan to Dhoni, FOUR, 4 more and that will be another FIFTY for Mahendra Singh Dhoni in ODIs. His 47th in ODIs, 9th against Pakistan. Flicks it off his pads wide of fine leg for a boundary. No celebrations from Dhoni but Duncan Fletcher stands up and applauds. Hope India's top order can learn some things from their skipper
Junaid Khan to Ishant, out Bowled!! Ishant doesn't survive this one. India's first home series loss in ODIs since Australia came here in 2009. This is how it happened: a lethal yorker on the off stump, Ishant can't get his bat down in time. Pakistan are overjoyed - they were the better team and deserve the result. Ishant b Junaid Khan 2(12)
