TMS tempt fates

The tempted fates strike again

1545: One of the most amazing shots you will ever see from Pietersen, who reverse sweeps Muralitharan for six over point. He follows up by berating someone for moving behind the sightscreen.

'England are in such control that you almost feel it's fading out as a contest. I can't imagine Murali has been treated like this by many batsmen.'
TMS analyst Gus Fraser "

1546: WICKET ENGLAND 290-6 Pietersen 142

Groans from the crowd and Pietersen walks off shaking his head after Hair decides he is out lbw this time to a Muralitharan doosra. A good decision from the umpire robs the crowd of more entertainment.

1551: WICKET ENGLAND 290-7 Flintoff 6 Malinga beats Flintoff for pace and rips out his off-stump with a good delivery. The skipper had been unusually subdued and registers a rare failure. England have lost their two kingpins in successive overs but are still in control with a lead of 149.
