   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match: J Dernbach Old Trafford, Manchester (31 August 2011)

India got off to a quick start with Rahane proving why he is so highly rated. Parthiv fell but even Dravid’s scratchy start didn’t matter as India raced away to 79/1 after 10 overs with 52% COW. In the next over Dravid smashed 3 sixes but fell soon afterwards triggering a collapse as India stuttered to 117/5 after 14 overs with 54% COW. Raina smacked a few around but the collapse continued as India was bundled out for 165 in 19.4 overs. PK continued his dream tour with an early wicket but Kieswetter and KP made most of wayward bowling and sloppy fielding to score rapidly before both fell with England at 64/3 after 8 overs with 69% COW. Morgan then nullified Rahane’s fifty with a super quick 49 off his own but Bopara and Samit’s scratchy partnership kept India in hunt till the very last over before Samit managed to hit 3 fours to seal the match with 3 balls to spare.

  1st Innings (India) - 20 overs Maximum  
arrow 5 overs: IND 40/1 IND 51% Rahane was out to prove a point
      even as Parthiv fell for 12 as India raced away to a quick start. India scored 40 runs in these 5 overs but a wicket meant their COW remained unchanged at 51%.
arrow 10 overs: IND 79/1 IND 52% Rahane continued in good touch
      to score a fifty on his debut but Dravid’s scratchy knock kept India in check as they scored 39 runs in this period. India’s COW went up by 1% to 52%.

arrow 19.4 overs: IND 165/10 IND 55% Raina launched an attack on the

  2nd Innings (England : Target 166) - 20 overs Maximum  
arrow 5 overs: ENG 43/1 ENG 60% PK removed Hales for a duck
      but Kieswetter and KP made the most of poor bowling and fielding as England scored 43 runs in this session. This increased their COW by 15% to 60%.
arrow 10 overs: ENG 90/3 ENG 73% The onslaught continued despite
      India getting both Kieswetter and KP as Morgan tore apart the Indian bowling attack. 47 came in this session as England gained control with their COW up by 13% to 73%.

arrow 19.3 overs: ENG 169/4 ENG 100% Morgan fell for 49 and some
