16.4 Sandeep Sharma to AJ Tye, out, goes back to the yorker and topples middle stump. No need to be funky if you can nail this ball. And it even reverse swings into the right-hander, looking to heave it over long-on. Tye misses, Sandeep hits | Apr 23, 2017
13.1 KC Cariappa to AD Nath, out, does not pick the very straight, very full carrom ball, plays all across it and is trapped plumb in front. Nath, in his first match of the season, under immense pressure, backfires | Apr 23, 2017
12.6 AR Patel to DR Smith, out, has he got all of this? No. Smith's holed out to long-off. This seemed like the ball that could get the batsman going. Slow, loopy, almost overpitched. The loft over long-off is a logical option, but there is a man there, a good fielder, Stoinis. Smith backs himself to clear him, but his power fails him this time | Apr 23, 2017
11.6 KC Cariappa to RA Jadeja, out, leading edge, and Cariappa takes the catch himself, diving forward. The around the wicket angle from the offspinner - and the fact that he is bowling flat and quick, not really trying to turn the ball - makes Jadeja close the face of the bat a bit too early. This time, though, the ball holds in the pitch and deviates from the straight. Cariappa sees the mis-hit, realises he has an opportunity and dives forward to take a good, low chance | Apr 23, 2017
8.6 AR Patel to SK Raina, out, excellent work by Maxwell, first in placing himself at a hot spot - deep midwicket for Raina - and then pulling off a fine catch right on the edge of the boundary. He positions himself as far back as he could, has his eyes on the ball all the way, realises he has to jump, times that perfectly, and comes away with the ball in hand. So a short ball has possibly turned the game. The gun batsman backs himself to clear the man in the deep, but his timing is just a shade short of what it needs to be | Apr 23, 2017
