 England tour of India, 2016-17     








IND 381/6 (50.0 Ovs)

  CRR: 7.62
49.6
Woakes to Jadeja, no run
49.5
Woakes to Jadeja, SIX, a low skimmer.
49.4
Woakes to Jadeja, FOUR, shuffles across and gets inside the line, the bottom-hand comes into play and splits the two men in the deep. Landed just inside the ropes at the deep mid-wicket fence. Woakes didn't hit the yorker and turned out to be an easy across the line hit for Jadeja
49.3
Woakes to Hardik Pandya, 1 run, goes outside off and looks for the paddle, it is on a length and he scoops it well in front of fine leg

49.2
Woakes to Jadeja, 1 run, low full toss outside off, Jadeja had to reach out and did so, getting a single to third man
49.1
Woakes to Jadeja, 2 runs, low full toss outside off, steered square of the wicket and they rush back for the second

48.6
J Ball to Jadeja, 1 run, yorker length on off, Jadeja digs it out through cover. For a single-retaining single
Yes and Ball will complete the over
48.5
J Ball to Hardik Pandya, 1 run, crikey! That has nearly taken Ball's head off. Good job that he put his hand up as his first form of defence. On seeing the ball come at him at the rate of light. Murdered by Hardik Pandya and at the face of the bowler. The ball strikes the right wrist and deflects away to long-on. There is concern in the Egland camp as Ball feels the pain of the blow, but a slight break is enough I suppose

48.4
J Ball to Jadeja, 1 run, to sweeper cover
48.3
J Ball to Hardik Pandya, 1 run, to long on
48.2
J Ball to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, to long off
48.1
J Ball to Jadeja, 1 run, to sweeper cover

47.6
Plunkett to Dhoni, out Caught by Willey!! Holed out to deep square. Low full toss and Dhoni has clipped it head high to the man. Didn't generate enough power to clear the man Dhoni c Willey b Plunkett 134(122) [4s-10 6s-6]
Plunkett to Dhoni, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
47.5
Plunkett to Dhoni, SIX, a rare occasion when Dhoni has played a lofted extra cover drive. Still in pain mind you. Backed away and took it on the full, everyone are in on the off-side and he cleared the ropes on the full. Just, but good enough. A slight grimace as he holds his left hand again

47.4
Plunkett to Dhoni, SIX, to deep mid wicket

47.3
Plunkett to Hardik Pandya, 1 run, to deep mid wicket
47.2
Plunkett to Dhoni, 1 run, to mid on
47.1
Plunkett to Dhoni, SIX, wow! What a blow. Comes down the track and swipes it across the line. Monumental hit. The ball sailed a long way into the stands. Used his wrists to great effect and powered the ball. Since he came down the track, he could take it on the full

46.6
J Ball to Dhoni, 1 run, full toss again, punched past Ball

46.5
J Ball to Hardik Pandya, 1 run, full toss and hit to Morgan at mid-wicket. Who hits Hardik Pandya with the throw, he was aiming for th stumps and missed. Instead found Pandya. Immediately apologises
46.5
J Ball to Hardik Pandya, wide, goes for an encore and takes it outside the tramline. Wide called
46.4
J Ball to Hardik Pandya, no run, yorker length outside off, Hardik Pandya can't squeeze it out
46.3
J Ball to Hardik Pandya, SIX, can Stokes get it? At deep square. No he can't. Despite leaping and getting a hand on that. A muscular pull by Hardik Pandya as the length was short, Stokes was in with a chance but the ball just had enough to evade his leap. And someone - I guess one of the ballboys - while returning the ball back, with Stokes looking the other way, pings the Durham fiery lad on the cheek. He isn't chuffed and has a long stare. As Nasser on air points out, it was purely accidental. Stokes doesn't feel that way.
46.2
J Ball to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, mid-off is in and it has been hit wide of him. Low full toss outside off and Hardik Pandya has blasted that through the gap. Off the mark first ball
46.1
J Ball to Dhoni, 1 run, low full toss outside off, Dhoni slaps it straight to the fielder at sweeper cover

45.6
Plunkett to K Jadhav, out Caught by J Ball!! Caught at mid-wicket? Yes. Ball with the catch. The bat turned on impact as he tried to go after the full toss. The closed face of the bat is found and that spoilt all timing. Ball got forward and took a good tumbling catch. End of Jadhav for today. K Jadhav c J Ball b Plunkett 22(10) [4s-3 6s-1]

Plunkett to K Jadhav, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

45.5
Plunkett to K Jadhav, FOUR, played a cheeky late ramp last over and follows it up with another one now. Closer to his body and cramping him up, but he arched back and then opened the face of the bat to guide it away to the third man fence. Used the back of a length delivery to his advantage
45.4
Plunkett to K Jadhav, SIX, Jadhav has shown off there. Much like how Yuvraj did earlier on. This is ripe for the loft and he plays with so much style and poise. Holds the pose for the cameras as the high elbow and all that came into effect. Just a mere extension of the arms and the ball landed beyond the sightscreen
45.3
Plunkett to Dhoni, 1 run, tight delivery on off stump, Dhoni pushes it defensively to mid-off
45.3
Plunkett to Dhoni, wide, down leg, wasted delivery and called wide
45.2
Plunkett to Dhoni, 2 runs, full and on the stumps, Dhoni called for two as soon as he hit it, placed well wide of long-on and they come back for the second
45.1
Plunkett to K Jadhav, 1 run, length ball and angled in, Jadhav knocks it into the mid-wicket gap for a run

44.6
Stokes to K Jadhav, 1 run, to backward square leg

44.5
Stokes to K Jadhav, FOUR, to deep mid wicket

44.4
Stokes to Dhoni, 1 run, to long on

44.3
Stokes to Dhoni, FOUR, an umpire-killer this one. Good to see Anil Chaudhary take evasive action
44.2
Stokes to K Jadhav, 1 run, high full toss on the stumps, Jadhav pushes it past Stokes
44.1
Stokes to Dhoni, 1 run, unnecessary from Morgan. Dhoni and Jadhav weren't looking for the single. He shies and hits direct, the ricochet allows the quick single to be taken. Another shy to Buttler and nearly another one. Madness in the field from England

43.6
Plunkett to K Jadhav, FOUR, cheeky and effective. Slightest of room given, outside off, Jadhav opens the face of the bat and ramps it to the third man fence. Beat the fielder with ease

43.5
Plunkett to K Jadhav, no run, short of length and tight on off, Jadhav defends off the back foot

43.4
Plunkett to Dhoni, 1 run, short of length and cramping Dhoni for room, pushed defensively through cover

43.4
Plunkett to Dhoni, wide, down leg, clips and misses
43.3
Plunkett to Dhoni, byes, FOURthis is a weird law. Plunkett has bowled Dhoni off the free-hit. Won't count. But the deflection off the stumps leaves Buttler helpless and runs away to the fence. Given as byes. Morgan has a wry smile and shakes his head. But that's the law - so has to get on with it

43.3
Plunkett to Dhoni, no ball, 2 runs, getting worse and worse for England. Plunkett oversteps and Dhoni gets back for two with a flick through square leg

43.2
Plunkett to K Jadhav, 1 run, short outside off, Jadhav controls the pull and manages to get off the mark and give Dhoni the strike back

43.1
Plunkett to Dhoni, 1 run, low full toss outside off, Dhoni taps it through cover and gives Jadhav the strike

42.6
Woakes to Yuvraj, out Caught by Buttler!! Yuvraj c Buttler b Woakes 150(127) [4s-21 6s-3]

Woakes to Yuvraj, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

42.5
Woakes to Dhoni, 1 run, in the air and can Hales get there? No he can't. 100 for Dhoni. Kohli pumps the air with his right fist. Dhoni is Dhoni. Just a raise of the bat and that's about it. Not a man for exuberant celebrations. Hales did a brilliant job running to his right from deep square, tried to cup it with his right hand on the dive. Couldn't grasp it and seems to have done some damage to his left elbow


India Vs England , 2nd ODI , Barabati Stadium, Cuttack


42.4
Woakes to Dhoni, no run, very full outside off, still can't get there. Squeezed straight to the fielder at extra cover

42.3
Woakes to Dhoni, no run, goes short and at pace outside off, Dhoni pulls and misses. Too high for him to be fetching it from there as well
42.2
Woakes to Dhoni, SIX, he has nailed that. Take that. Full and outside off, Dhoni lambasts the lofted hit into the second tier. Strikes one of the ad-hoardings and comes down. Monstrous hit that
42.1
Woakes to Dhoni, no run, length ball outside off, smashed with no timing to extra cover

41.6
Stokes to Dhoni, 1 run, slower delivery down leg, glanced to fine leg

41.5
Stokes to Yuvraj, 1 run, 150 for Yuvraj. Driven to long-off. A raise of the bat and a little prayer after looking heavenwards. Very measured celebration

41.4
Stokes to Dhoni, 1 run, Stokes takes one on the chest. Smiling and at the same time, rubbing that wounded area. Driven back to him and the ball escaped past his hands to strike him. Ball bobbles away to the cover region

41.3
Stokes to Yuvraj, 1 run, yorker length outside off, jammed to cover for an easy single
46.6
J Ball to Dhoni, 1 run, to long on
46.5

J Ball to Hardik Pandya, wide
46.4
J Ball to Hardik Pandya, no run
46.3
J Ball to Hardik Pandya, SIX, can Stokes get it? At deep square. No he can't. Despite leaping and getting a hand on that. A muscular pull by Hardik Pandya as the length was short, Stokes was in with a chance but the ball just had enough to evade his leap.
46.2
J Ball to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, mid-off is in and it has been hit wide of him. Low full toss outside off and Hardik Pandya has blasted that through the gap. Off the mark first ball

46.1
J Ball to Dhoni, 1 run, low full toss outside off, Dhoni slaps it straight to the fielder at sweeper cover

IND 268/3 (41.0 Ovs)

  CRR: 6.54

Woakes to Dhoni, FOUR, to fine leg
India Vs England , 2nd ODI , Barabati Stadium, Cuttack

40.1
Woakes to Yuvraj, no run, pitched up outside off, Yuvraj has to reach out as it is slanting away from him, just inside the tramline as well, can't get bat to ball

39.6

Stokes to Yuvraj, 1 run, pitched up outside off, Yuvraj drives and off the toe end, Morgan at extra cover tidies up


39.5

Stokes to Dhoni, 1 run, to long on

39.4
Stokes to Yuvraj, 1 run, to deep extra cover

39.3
Stokes to Yuvraj, SIX, flat. Flat. Such a flat six. Won't see many of this in ODI cricket. Stokes missed the yorker, as he bowled the slower delivery, turned out to be the perfect hitting length and the right elevation for Yuvraj to get under that one. Lofted it minimal followthrough but with a high backlift. The ball thudded into the LED light boards outside the ropes.

39.3
Stokes to Yuvraj, wide

39.2
Stokes to Yuvraj, FOUR, short fine is in and Yuvraj has got inside the line to flick the full ball to his right. Enough to get four. Short fine had no chance. Stokes has a grimace on his face

Field changes being made by Morgan for Yuvraj who will be on strike

39.1
Stokes to Dhoni, 1 run, slower delivery outside off, Dhoni went for a big muscular hit, sliced it but landed in the vacant areas in front of sweeper cover

Woakes to Dhoni, no run

38.4
Woakes to Yuvraj, 1 run, to long on

38.3
Woakes to Yuvraj, no run

38.2
Woakes to Yuvraj, SIX, he is teeing off now. Stands tall to this shortish ball and muscles the pull high. Right in between deep mid-wicket and long-on. Eludes them both and lands outside the ropes.

38.1
Woakes to Dhoni, 1 run, back of a length outside off, slapped to sweeper cover

37.6
J Ball to Yuvraj, FOUR, follows it up with a full toss, easy for Yuvraj to place it between cover and mid-off. No-one deep at long-off or cover. So Yuvraj didn't hit it too hard, placed it and got four

37.5
J Ball to Yuvraj, FOUR, Ball is not learning. Third time in two overs he has been pulled over mid-wicket. Bowling the off-cutting short ball. Begs to be punished and Yuvraj pummels it over square leg flat, nearly six, one bounce over the ropes

37.4
J Ball to Dhoni, 1 run, Plunkett at short fine saves three with the dive and stop. Went to his left to rein that pull from Dhoni in. Not going at great pace, mind you, but still had to be stopped

37.3
J Ball to Yuvraj, 1 run, full on the stumps, Yuvraj plays a checked on-drive, not going full-throttle because he doesn't want to hole out. The ball bounces in front of the fielder

37.2
J Ball to Yuvraj, no run, shortish on the stumps, Yuvraj pulls but picks out backward square to perfection. Missed out

37.1
J Ball to Dhoni, 1 run, pitched up outside off, slightly uppish drive, but well wide of cover

36.6
Woakes to Dhoni, 1 run, very full outside off, squeezed out to sweeper cover

36.5
Woakes to Dhoni, SIX, last game he played a similar shot and got out. This has carried over long-on for six. Much meatier blow it must be said. Charged Woakes and was cramped for room on the pull, played a flat-batted pull in the end, using all his strength in those arms of his. Does enough to carry the ball over the ropes

36.4
Woakes to Dhoni, no run, goes full and wide outside off, Dhoni is beaten on the big hit over cover. The ball goes under his attempted shot and doesn't carry to Buttler

36.3
Woakes to Yuvraj, 1 run, pitched up outside off, Yuvraj drills the drive to sweeper cover, too good a shot for just a run

36.2
Woakes to Dhoni, 1 run, a splice-jarring length ball on the stumps, Dhoni mistimes the pull, but wide of mid-wicket

Break in play. A short one and back on now

STAT: This is now the highest 4th wicket stand v Eng by any team. Previous best: 172* by Hashim Amla & AB de Villiers at Trent Bridge in 2012

36.1
Woakes to Dhoni, no run, hurries onto Dhoni on the pull, who gets an inside edge onto the flushy part of the left leg , just missing the sensitive groin area. Still is seen smiling as he calls for the physio. Timeout called!

35.6
J Ball to Yuvraj, FOUR, to deep mid wicket

35.5
J Ball to Yuvraj, no run, yorker outside off, much better option

35.4
J Ball to Yuvraj, FOUR, smashed. This slower short ball sits up at a nice height for Yuvraj. From outside off and hit over mid-wicket. One bounce and over the ropes. No real height on that one from Ball

35.3
J Ball to Dhoni, 1 run, this short ball rises on Dhoni, who gets up high to bunt it down into the vacant square leg area

35.2
J Ball to Dhoni, no run, Dhoni wants the single after Mo fumbled on the dive at mid-wicket. Yuvraj isn't interested and sends him back. Slower short ball, Dhoni went too hard on the pull and mistimed it badly

35.1
J Ball to Dhoni, no run, Dhoni missed out there. Takes the short ball from outside off, finds Mo at mid-wicket with the pull

34.6

Plunkett to Yuvraj, FOUR, goes hard on the flowing cover drive, thick edge and it has raced away to the third man fence. England finding it very difficult to stop this deluge now


34.5
Plunkett to Dhoni, leg byes, 1 run, down leg, brushes the pad of Dhoni, Buttler fumbles on the dive and they take an extra

34.4
Plunkett to Yuvraj, 1 run, shortish on the stumps, a swivel-pull to deep square leg

34.3
Plunkett to Yuvraj, no run, backs away outside leg, but Plunkett keeps it honest by tucking Yuvraj up, defended back

34.2
Plunkett to Dhoni, 1 run, gets an inside edge onto the thigh pad as he looked to tuck, the ball rolls away into the on-side. Single

34.1
Plunkett to Dhoni, FOUR, uses his feet and looks to flick, Plunkett follows him but Dhoni adjusts and clips it fine, to fine leg beating the fielder with ease. Runs flowing now

33.6
J Ball to Dhoni, 1 run, drifting down, clipped away to fine leg
33.5
J Ball to Yuvraj, 1 run, low full toss on the stumps, Yuvraj gets across and flicks to mid-wicket for a single

J Ball to Dhoni, 1 run, short outside off, Dhoni flat-bats the pull, to the left of mid-on
33.3
J Ball to Yuvraj, 1 run, in the air, and lands short of deep square leg. Went for a big pull and completely mistimed it, got lucky as the ball didn't carry to the fielder
33.3
J Ball to Yuvraj, wide, down leg, called wide
33.2
J Ball to Dhoni, 1 run, short outside off, chopped away to third man
33.1
J Ball to Yuvraj, 1 run, came off the toe end, the pull, stopped with a dive to his left at mid-on
Plunkett to Yuvraj, 1 run, 100 for Yuvraj. He has come back in great style. Raise of the bat to the skies and a gesture to the dressing room. Dhoni at the other end is quick to come up and congratulate. No outpouring of emotion from the man, when he got to the landmark. Now what do I see here - a tear or two in the eyes as he takes the helmet off. Yes definitely tears as replays give me a second glance at his celebration after getting to the 100. Taps the glove and the chest with his bat, hard and there are the tears of relief. Takes a moment or two to compose himself. Who better than Dhoni at the other end to take care of that aspect. A chat between the two as well, as Yuvraj soaks the moment in. Great scenes! Emotional scenes! Brilliant stuff
32.5
Plunkett to Yuvraj, no run, still can't get it away, tucked straight to the fielder at mid-wicket
32.4
Plunkett to Yuvraj, no run, a hush descends on the Barabati. Closes the bat face too early on the flick, soft leading edge rolls back to Plunkett
The crowd are on their feet as is captain Kohli
32.3
Plunkett to Yuvraj, FOUR, up and over mid-off. Too easy for Yuvraj now. Sees the width on that full delivery outside off, lifts it over the fielder inside the ring. Moves to 99
32.2
Plunkett to Yuvraj, 2 runs, to deep backward point,
32.1
Plunkett to Yuvraj, no run, tight delivery around off, Yuvraj defends to the left of point

31.6
Stokes to Yuvraj, 1 run, short and wide outside off, cut away to third man

31.5
Stokes to Yuvraj, FOUR, woof! Morgan is seen hiding his expressions under those dark glasses. He has played the cover drive, the off-drive and now the on-drive. Just a checked punch with no followthrough. High backlift and the ball has scorched away past the mid-on fielder. Stokes went a bit too full for Yuvraj's liking

31.4
Stokes to Dhoni, 1 run, "two" was the initial call, but will be just one. Slower ball outside off, chopped to the left of sweeper

31.3
Stokes to Yuvraj, 1 run, good length ball and angled in, punched to mid-on, easy single

31.2
Stokes to Yuvraj, FOUR, Stokes is kicking away in disgust. Not happy at all with that short and wide delivery outside off, Yuvraj cuts up and over point. No chance for third man who was running across

31.1
Stokes to Yuvraj, no run, full and on the stumps from round the wicket, driven straight to the fielder at mid-on



30.6
Plunkett to Yuvraj, 1 run, to cover

30.5
Plunkett to Yuvraj, no run, slower delivery on the stumps, Yuvraj eyed the deep square leg fence, went early on the flick, inside-edged onto the pad. Yuvraj suggests to Dhoni that Plunkett rolled his fingers across that one

30.4
Plunkett to Dhoni, 1 run, this time turns it wide and to the right of mid-wicket. Easy single

30.3
Plunkett to Dhoni, no run, short of length and on the stumps, tucked to mid-wicket

30.2
Plunkett to Dhoni, no run,

30.1
Plunkett to Dhoni, 2 runs, can he get two this time? Yes he can. How he got there, only he will know. Simple tuck behind square and gave Root no chase at deep backward square leg

30.1
Plunkett to Dhoni, wide, short ball on the stumps, too high and called a wide

29.6
Stokes to Dhoni, 1 run, to sweeper cover

29.5
Stokes to Dhoni, FOUR, two consecutive fours. One to third man, this to fine leg. Drifting into the thigh pad, neatly glanced away to the fine leg fence, beating the fielder. Just needed a tickle and Dhoni provided more than that

29.4
Stokes to Dhoni, FOUR50 for Dhoni. Despair for Stokes and England. Flashes at a length ball outside off, gets a thick edge which was flying to the keeper's right. Too quick for Buttler who went full-length on the dive to his right. Eventually, didn't even get a fingertip on that. Raced away

Dhoni on 49 now

29.3
Stokes to Yuvraj, 1 run, full and angled in, flicked to deep square leg

28.1
Plunkett to Dhoni, no run,

27.6
Moeen Ali to Dhoni, 1 run, comes down the track and pushes to long-on to take a single

27.5
Moeen Ali to Dhoni, SIX, there comes the helicopter. Dhoni is seen smiling as he enjoys the shot with Yuvraj. The bat coming down on the ball with minimal followthrough. All work done by those monster forearms and the ball has landed beyond the deep mid-wicket ropes. Got under that brilliantly

27.5
Moeen Ali to Dhoni, wide, darted down leg, hoping to catch Dhoni off-guard, he stays in his crease. Called wide

27.4
Moeen Ali to Dhoni, no run, he has missed out on a rank long hop. Yuvraj sticks his tongue out in surprise. Short and going down, Dhoni went for too much power and horridly mistimed it to short fine

27.3
Moeen Ali to Dhoni, no run, misses out on a full toss. Skip down the track and hit back to Moeen Ali on the bounce

27.2
Moeen Ali to Dhoni, 2 runs, uses his feet and whips it to deep square leg, told Yuvraj that he has completed the run and gets two with ease

26.4
Willey to Yuvraj, no run, poor. Such a poor shot. At best he would've got two

26.2
Willey to Yuvraj, no run, tight delivery on the stumps, Yuvraj is hit on the splice, the ball rolls to point

26.1

24.6
Willey to Yuvraj, 1 run, square of the wicket

24.5
Willey to Dhoni, 1 run, back of a length on the stumps, Dhoni gets inside the line and tucks to deep backward square, wants two, it isn't there. Square boundaries too small even for Dhoni

24.4
Willey to Dhoni, FOUR, now Dhoni gets into the act. Full on middle, Dhoni eases the drive, just a push and look at that go away past the diving mid-off. Mid-on knew that his mate would struggle to get there, gave chase, but this outfield gives you no chance

24.3
Willey to Dhoni, no run, good length on off stump, Dhoni gets forward and defends it back to Willey

24.3
Willey to Dhoni, wide, down leg, called wide

24.2
Willey to Yuvraj, 1 run, 100-run stand is up. Shortish outside off, cut away to sweeper cover

24.1
Willey to Yuvraj, FOUR, keeps getting better and better. Swing for Willey, towards off and middle, flicked emphatically between mid-wicket and mid-on. Raced away across the super fast outfield. Got his front leg across and then the bat came down

23.6
Moeen Ali to Yuvraj, 1 run, defends it close to his body
England tour of India, 2016-17

23.5
