View dismissal UT Khawaja c †Dhoni b Nehra 14 10 6 2 0 233.33
2.2 84.4 mph, and Khawaja is gone. Lovely delivery from Nehra. Khawaja goes without facing a dot. It's the first time he might have got out for under fifty in a long long time. Nehra gets this length ball to hold its line, Khawaja's defensive push is not the greatest, and the outside edge carries to Dhoni. Just the right ball: not driving length, not to be pulled, and he defends just with the hands. Doesn't get close to the ball 16/1
SR Watson* not out 124 86 71 10 6 174.64
View dismissal SE Marsh b Ashwin 9 22 12 1 0 75.00
7.4 54.4 mph, slower through the air, tempting Marsh, who pays for it. Looks for the big slog sweep, but the ball doesn't quite arrive. He is well early into the shot, and is bowled 69/2
View dismissal GJ Maxwell c Raina b Yuvraj Singh 3 5 5 0 0 60.00
9.1 58.6 mph, and Yuvraj has found a new bunny after KP. First ball Maxwell looks to will a shot over extra cover, but the thing with Yuvraj is, he gives you no pace to work with. Maxwell gets no power behind this shot, and finds the man at extra cover 75/3
View dismissal TM Head b Jadeja 26 32 19 1 1 136.84
16.6 63.5 mph, fires in a yorker at 102ks, and squeezes it under Head's bat to knock the middle stump over. Some solace for Jadeja after he was put on a hiding to nothing bowling to a set Watson with the short leg-side boundary 168/4
View dismissal CA Lynn c Jadeja b Bumrah 13 12 9 2 0 144.44
19.4 86.0 mph, lovely bowling by Bumrah and a lovely catch by Jadeja. Follows Lynn with a full ball as Lynn back away. Lynn manages to scoop it towards cow corner, but Jadeja makes a lot of ground to his right from deep midwicket and takes this with a dive 193/5

View dismissal RG Sharma c Watson b Boyce 52 57 38 5 1 136.84
12.3 50.7 mph, Boyce gets the wicket after building the pressure going at a strike rate of 100. Sharma plays a tired chip shot off the toes, and finds midwicket with it. Sharma has done his job, though. Asking rate less than what it was when they started the chase 124/2
View dismissal S Dhawan c †Bancroft b Watson 26 18 9 4 1 288.88
3.2 81.9 mph, golden arm if ever there was one. Dhawan steps out of the crease, gets a shortish delivery, looks to repeat the dose, but the ball bounces a touch more than expected and takes the edge. Watson is doing it all by himself 46/1
View dismissal V Kohli b Boyce 50 49 36 2 1 138.88
14.5 48.9 mph, Kohli is bowled in a roundabout way. Boyce has kept Australia in the contest. This has been a good contest between him and Kohli. Kohli has been charging at Boyce who has still been managing to york him with some dip on his deliveries. This one takes the cue end, hits the pad, ricochets into the stumps 147/3
