View dismissal CH Gayle c Suppiah b Thomas 86 46 4 8 186.95
17.5 now just where was Suppiah earlier? he has held another high catch, Gayle has to go finally, it was short of a length and Gayle tried to swing it over midwicket, got it high in the air and Suppiah was waiting, again, but Gayle has done enough damage you would reckon 188/5
View dismissal TM Dilshan b van der Merwe 23 16 4 1 143.75
4.3 bowled 'em, round his legs, Dilshan had moved across his stumps, trying to get as close to the line as possible in order to play the slog sweep, but VDM outthought him with one fired in full around leg stump, Dilshan missed again, this time for the last time in this game, he's lost his off stump 38/1
View dismissal V Kohli b Kirby 33 22 4 1 150.00
11.1 he's bowled Virat! it was bowled in the blockhole on leg, Virat closed the face early to tuck it in front of square leg, it crashed in to the stumps off the boot, Kirby lets loose a war-cry, Somerset engulf him 108/2
View dismissal SS Tiwary c Suppiah b Kirby 18 15 1 1 120.00
15.3 Somerset have caught something finally, Tiwary goes after a full delivery, it is also a slower one, and his attempted slog-swing goes high in the air but Suppiah at deep midwicket manages to get under it, he even holds on to it, the crowd descends in to silence 157/3
View dismissal MA Agarwal c Suppiah b Thomas 19 8 1 2 237.50

View dismissal PD Trego c Vettori b Bhatkal 58 38 6 3 152.63
16.1 that's it for Somerset then, Trego looks to smash a length ball out of sight, cannot clear the offside infield though as he backs away a shade to much, catch taken cleanly by Vettori at mid off, and he walks off in disgust 131/5
View dismissal C Kieswetter c †Arun Karthik b Vettori 26 19 3 2 136.84
4.2 well, batsmen pull out of shots, now the keeper has pulled out of the stumping, but that is because he realises he has caught the ball off the outside edge, Kieswetter charged hastily down the track, probably a touch too early, Vettori has seen it all, he holds it back a touch, it beats him in flight, turns and takes the edge to lodge in to the keeper's gloves 42/1
View dismissal RE van der Merwe c †Arun Karthik b Vettori 6 3 0 1 200.00
4.5 Vettori gets on top again, he floats this one up a touch slower, RVDM lines up another slog-sweep, gets a top edge though and the keeper settles under it, 48/2
View dismissal JC Hildreth c †Arun Karthik b Nannes 15 15 1 0 100.00
10.5 Nannes strikes with a 139 kph nasty short one, too quick and tight to do anything, he tried to pull, but only got a top edge to the keeper 109/3
View dismissal JC Buttler c Tiwary b Aravind 4 12 0 0 33.33
13.1 Buttler's struggle is over, he tries to back away and lift Aravind down the ground but cannot get enough under it, long off has a lot of time to come in and take a simple catch 118/4
NRD Compton not out 17 20 1 0 85.00
View dismissal AV Suppiah b Aravind 1 3 0 0 33.33
17.1 bowled 'em! Aravind hits the middle stump, Suppiah swings inside the line of one leaving him with the angle, and the ball crashes in to wood, the wrong kind for the batsman 135/6
