India vs England Second Test at Trent Bridge

IND v ENG 2nd Test, Trent Bridge, Day 5 : India beat England by 7 wickets (IND 1:0)

India, who needed only 73 runs to beat England in the Trent Bridge Test, won by 7 wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series on Tuesday.
India lost their first wicket with the score on 48 as opener Wasim Jaffer retuned to the pavilion. Seven runs later, his partner Dinesh Kaarthick was out as they both made 22 and were scalped by Chris Tremlett. Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site, who top-scored with 91 in the first innings, made just 1 and he too was removed by Tremlett. With the final morning proving bright and sunny, Ryan Sidebottom, James Anderson and Chris Tremlett were unable to shake up the openers, but a couple of wickets took the gloss off India's overwhelming win.
Two Wasim Jaffer boundaries off Sidebottom's fifth over put India within touching distance of victory. Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly remained unbeaten on 11 and 2 respectively. Pre-Match Report: Play on the fifth and final day of the second cricket Test between India and England was expected to begin on time with the sun shining brightly in the morning at Trent Bridge.
The Indians need just 63 runs to wrap up the match and take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. Chasing a meagre target of 73 for victory, India were 10 for no loss with Dinesh Karthik (6) and Wasim Jaffer (3) at the crease at close on the penultimate day.

IND v ENG 2nd Test, Trent Bridge, Day 4 : India need 63 more to win the Trent Bridge Test

India needed just 73 to beat England in the Trent Bridge Test and secure a 1-0 lead in the three-match Test series after bowling out the hosts for 355 on the fourth day on Monday.
At close of play, India were 10/0 in 3 overs, needing a further 63 runs to win the Test. Openers Dinesh Kaarthick (6) and Wasim Jaffer (3) were sitll at the crease. England captain Michael Vaughan produced a superb 124 and put on 112 with Paul Collingwood to lead a fight back. When Vaughan was going great guns, England were in front with still seven wickets remaining.
However, the last seven wickets tumbled for just 68 runs and Zaheer Khan , who picked 5-75, produced some inspired seam bowling. Collingwood made 63 and Andrew Strauss 55, but other key batsmen just failed. Leg-spinner Anil Kumble mopped up the tail and finished with 3-104 while RP Singh claimed 2-52 with his support act. Reported Earlier: England recovered from an early setback to frustrate India's hopes of making inroads as they attempted to prevent defeat in the second Test at Trent Bridge.
Resuming the fourth morning trailing by 240 runs on 43 without loss, England knew they had a major task just to make the tourists bat again in this match. That objective became even tougher when England lost opener Alastair Cook in the third over of the day to leave them reeling on 49 for one, with seamers Zaheer Khan and Sreesanth swinging the ball prodigiously.
But Andrew Strauss and Michael Vaughan rode their luck to forge an unbroken 80-run partnership and guide England to a more respectable 129 for one at lunch, although they still trailed by 154 runs.
Second Test, Trent Bridge, Day 4 (stumps) : England 198 & 355 v India 481 & 10-0

IND v ENG 2nd Test, Trent Bridge, Day 3 : England 240 runs behind India on day 3

India imposed a huge lead of 283 runs on England before being finally bowled out for 481 in their first innings on day three of the Nottingham Test.
England, in reply, ended the day at 43 for no loss in 16 overs in their second innings, still trailing the visitors by 240 runs. England was bowled out for 198 in their first innings.
Openers Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook were batting on 21 and 17 respectively when stumps were drawn. England bowlers stuck to their task and gained some success late on day three, with Monty Panesar finishing with 4-101 and Chris Tremlett 3-82. Reported Earlier: Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site who was playing extremely well at 91 became a victim of a bad decision from umpire Simon Taufel, as he was declared out LBW. The poor decision denuded Tendulkar of his 38th Test century. The delivery from Paul Collingwood was clearly missing the off stump.
India were 338 for 3 at lunch on day 3 of the second Test match against England at Trent Bridge on Sunday. India continued to perform splendidly on day 3 too as they added another 84 runs in the first session without losing a wicket. Sourav Ganguly completed his 28th Test fifty against England with some marvellous strokeplay. Ganguly looked more focused and avoided playing reckless shots.
Second Test, Trent Bridge, Day 3 (stumps): England 198 & 43-0 v India 481-10

IND v ENG 2nd Test, Trent Bridge, Day 2 : India 254 for 3 on day two

India were 254 for 3 at stumps against England on Day 2 of the second Test match at Trent Bridge on Saturday. Bad light forced the umpires to end the day which was pretty much dominated by Indian batsmen. Englands bowling attack looked lacklustre as top bowlers like Ryan Sidebottom and Chris Tremlett failed to make a mark.
Meanwhile, India lost the key wicket of Rahul Dravid who guided Panesars delivery straight into the hands of Ian Bell. Disappointed Dravid left the ground after making a strong partnership of more than 90 runs with Sachin.
Earlier, Dinesh Karthik was dismissed by Monty Panesar as India suffered their second setback in the Test match. Karthik who batted extremely well in the first two sessions of the day was dismissed on the first ball after tea. He made 77 runs. India were 49 runs behind England and were 149 for 1 at tea. India dominated the second session of the day too except the 1 wicket of Wasim Jaffer. Chris Tremlett claimed the first Indian wicket as Wasim Jaffer was caught behind by Matt Prior. Bowling change worked well for England as Tremlett was able to break a 147 run partnership. Jaffer made 62 runs.
Dinesh Karthik ruptured Englands bowling attack to make his 5th Test half-century in the second Test match at Trent Bridge against England on Saturday. Karthik played a mature and credible innings to dodge the swing of English bowlers. After Karthik it was Jaffers turn to call the shots as he too plundered his 8th Test fifty. India grazed past the score of 100 runs without losing a wicket as Dinesh Karthik and Wasim Jaffer hammered the bowlers all over the ground. Reported EarlierIndia openers Wasim Jaffer and Dinesh Karthik successfully survived a testing morning examination from England's pace attack on day two of the second npower Test match at Trent Bridge.
The new-ball combination of Ryan Sidebottom and Jimmy Anderson beat the bat on several occasions, in conditions still condusive to swing and seam bowling. But they failed to make the breakthrough as India reached 40-0 from 16 overs by lunch in reply to England's 198 all out.
Second Test, Trent Bridge, Day 2 : England 198 (65.3 overs) v India 254-3 (79.0 overs)

IND v ENG 2nd Test, Trent Bridge, Day 1 : England post 169 for 7

England were 169 for seven in their first innings at the close of the first day of the second test against India at Trent Bridge on Friday.
India reduced England to 94 for three at tea after asking the home side to bat on a rain-delayed opening day of the second test at Trent Bridge on Friday. Andrew Strauss (4), captain Michael Vaughan (9) and Kevin Pietersen (13) were all back in the pavilion before the total had reached 50 after Rahul Dravid had won the toss.
At tea, after play had begun four hours late because of heavy rain this week which had soaked the outfield, Alastair Cook was on 35 and Paul Collingwood had scored 25.
Left-armer Zaheer Khan accounted for Strauss and Vaughan on a pitch offering plenty of movement for quicker bowlers. Khan dismissed Strauss when the left-hander pushed at a full-pitched delivery and guided it straight to Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site at first slip. Vaughan followed to the same combination when Khan produced a perfect delivery on off-stump from around the wicket and Tendulkar scooped up a low chance.
Pietersen, taking a large stride forward to counter the late swing, struck three fours but was then LBW RP Singh. The first Test at Lord's ended in a draw on Monday with India one wicket away from defeat. Reported Earlier: Zaheer Khan took two quick wickets as England were reduced to 94 for 3 at tea on the opening day of the second Test at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Friday.
The left-armer pacer dismissed Andrew Strauss (4) and Michael Vaughan (9) in his first spell to give India early command on a pitch offering considerable help to seam bowlers.
Kevin Pietersen , who scored a century in the previous Test at Lord's, did not last long, falling fell leg before wicket to R P Singh for 13. Alastair Cook survived early jitters to remain unbeaten on 35, including five boundaries, at the tea break.
The start of play was delayed by around four hours because of a wet outfield due to overnight rain. Both India and England retained the squads that played in the drawn first Test at Lord's. Reported Earlier: The start of the second cricket Test match between India and England has been delayed due to a wet outfield caused by overnight rain.
Umpires Simon Taufel and Ian Howell will inspect the ground at 1130 hrs local time (4 p.m. IST) before taking a decision on start of play. After two days of rain, the sun has broken out since morning and the groundsmen were seen mopping up the outfield using four super-soppers.
Second Test, Trent Bridge, Day 1 (stumps): England 169 for 7 (55.0 overs) v India

IND v ENG 2nd Test, Trent Bridge: Threat of rain looms large, again

As rain continued to pour down onto the Trent Bridge outfield, just a day before the start of the second Test between England and India, the tourists were gearing themselves up for another stop-start contest.
Bad light and rain came to Indias aid on the final day of the first Test at Lords, where with England needing just one more wicket for victory, the opening fixture in a three-match series was abandoned as a draw. Now, with huge pools of water visible all over the Trent Bridge, the chances of the match starting on time today even if the rain stops appear to be diminishing by the minute although, with other parts of the country victims of flooding, it looked as if Nottingham had enjoyed an escape by comparison. India Team (from): Wasim Jaffer, Dinesh Karthik, Rahul Dravid (Captain), Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site, Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Wicket Keeper), Anil Kumble, Zaheer Khan, RP Singh, Sreesanth, Yuvraj Singh, Ranadeb Bose, Ishant Sharma, Ramesh Powar, Gautam Gambhir.
England Team (from): Andrew Strauss, Alastair Cook, Michael Vaughan (Captain), Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Ian Bell, Matt Prior (Wicket Keeper), Ryan Sidebottom, Chris Tremlett, Monty Panesar, James Anderson, Stuart Broad.

IND v ENG 2nd Test, Trent Bridge: Ganguly doubtful for second test

After a disastoruos showing in the first Test, Team India now have a scare in the form of Sourav Ganguly's injury ahead of second Test at Trent Bridge starting on July 27.
The Indian team's spokesperson Yuvraj Singh did not say much about the injury but confirmed ''Sourav has a slight lower back strain.'' The former captain was clearly hampered by a back problem during the second innings of the first Test at Lord's and was unable to take part today's net practice which was moved to the National Academy at Loughborough because of persistent rain at Nottingham. If he is ruled out, then Yuvraj will replace the 'Bengal Tiger' as India look for a vastly improved batting performance after surviving with only wicket in hand against England's rookie attack.
But Yuvi is confident the team will make the most of their fortunate escape in the first Test.
