View dismissal WTS Porterfield* c Yadav b MM Sharma 67 106 93 5 1 72.04
31.2 80.5 mph, gone! Came down the track, and looked to chip the ball into the leg side, from outside off, against the angle. Takes the leading edge and pops in the air, easy catch for the backpedalling Umesh at mid-off 145/3
View dismissal PR Stirling c Rahane b Ashwin 42 60 41 4 2 102.43
14.6 53.0 mph, oh, man. That's a tame end to a promising innings. Ashwin, to his credit, held it back just a bit and beat him in the air as Stirling looked to hit over the top. Ended up checking his shot, and scooping the simplest of catches to long-off. Poor choice of shot, considering the fielder was in the deep. 89/1
View dismissal EC Joyce b Raina 2 7 9 0 0 22.22
17.2 57.4 mph, gone! That was angled in again, a bit round-arm, and was neither short enough nor wide enough to cut. Made himself room, and it hurried through him and took out his middle stump 92/2
View dismissal NJ O'Brien c Yadav b Mohammed Shami 75 88 75 7 3 100.00
42.1 80.8 mph, he won't get it! Shami spears it full on off stump, and he took a step down the track and shuffled across to clip it through the leg side. Hit it uppishly, straight to Umesh Yadav at backward square leg 226/7
View dismissal A Balbirnie c Mohammed Shami b Ashwin 24 28 24 3 0 100.00
38.6 got him. Looks for the sweep again, and that shot has been fraught with danger today. There's a bit of extra bounce and he top-edges it, loops to the left of short fine leg and Shami takes a good running catch 206/4
View dismissal KJ O'Brien c †Dhoni b Mohammed Shami 1 6 2 0 0 50.00
39.3 81.3 mph, there won't be any KOB fireworks today. Lovely delivery from Shami, straightening a touch, very close to off stump. He drove hard without coming forward, and sent a thin nick through to Dhoni 208/5
View dismissal GC Wilson c Rahane b Jadeja 6 9 7 1 0 85.71
41.2 53.9 mph, another batsman is out playing the sweep. This was angled down the leg side, but again he top-edged it, may have gone off the toe-end, in fact, and Rahane, running to his left from short fine leg, took it on the dive, nice and low 222/6
View dismissal SR Thompson run out (Kohli) 2 10 2 0 0 100.00
42.3 Mohammed Shami to Mooney, back of a length outside off, and that is a super throw. He punched to short cover and Thompson took off for the single but Mooney sent him back. Kohli hits the stumps direct at the bowler's end, and the diving batsman is nowhere near the crease 227/8
JF Mooney not out 12 36 16 1 0 75.00
View dismissal GH Dockrell c †Dhoni b Yadav 6 14 12 0 1 50.00
45.3 83.1 mph, nine down. It's a shortish ball from Umesh, outside off, and Dockrell had backed away to make room. Looked for the pull, there was a bit of extra bounce, and he sent a thick, loud edge through to Dhoni 238/9
View dismissal AR Cusack c Yadav b Mohammed Shami 11 18 13 1 0 84.61
48.6 84.2 mph, and that is 50 wickets in five matches. It's short over off stump, he leaned away to ramp it and landed it straight into third man's hands 259/10

23.2 74.3 mph, chopped it on! It was back of a length, and it nipped back just a touch from outside off. Rohit was trying to guide it to third man and inside-edged it into his off stump 174/1

27.4 79.5 mph, Dhawan goes, and Thompson gets his second. It's a length ball on off stump, and he looks to hit it over the leg side. It straightened off the pitch, and he skewed it high over cover off his outside edge. Porterfield took it very, very well, turning around and running away from the batsman 190/2
