17.1

Dernbach to Raina, no run, regulation pace, low full toss, hit to midwicket

17.2

Dernbach to Raina, 1 run, short of a length, plants the leg outside the line of the ball, and pulls it to deep square leg

17.4

Dernbach to Raina, 2 runs, slower legcutter, cramps him up, Raina looks to steer it, Bresnan gets a bad turn at short third, Raina gets the second run too

17.5

Dernbach to Raina, 2 runs, gets the front leg out of the line and pulls this shortish delivery between deep square and deep midwicket

17.6

Dernbach to Raina, SIX, Aha. Right in Raina's range. Length ball, regulation pace, ripe meat for Raina, who throws the front leg out of the way to heave this over cow corner for six

India 137/3   SK Raina 11* (5b 1x6)

18.2

Swann to Raina, no run, drifts in towards the pad, Raina is looking for the turn, and can only play it back to Swann

18.3

Swann to Raina, FOUR, lovely shot, charges at Swann, makes room, gets inside the line, and goes over extra cover with a late wristy flick in the end

18.4

Swann to Raina, 1 run, driven down the ground, a diving Swann gets a hand to it, but they get the single

India 143/3   SK Raina 16* (8b 1x4 1x6)

19.2

Dernbach to Raina, no run, slower short ball, 112ks, it's short and wide with all off-side fielders up, but Raina is beaten by the slowness

19.3

Dernbach to Raina, SIX, The regulation pace! The regulation hit! Length ball. Clear the front leg. Heave it over cow corner

19.4

Dernbach to Raina, FOUR, That hitting over the cow corner has got him a four to long-on! His hitting across the line has made sure the long-on is wider than usual, and this mis-hit goes to long-on, to the right of the man. Bell mistimes the dive too

19.5

Dernbach to Raina, FOUR, one wide slower ball too many... the off-side field is all up, and Raina smartly waits for this before lofting this over cover

19.6

Dernbach to Raina, no run, another slower ball, this one is closer to off, Raina tries the slog sweep, gets an inside edge through to the keeper. It reaches Kieswetter on the 55th bounce

India 160/4   SK Raina 30* (13b 3x4 2x6)

20.4

Bresnan to Raina, SIX, and what striking Raina is indulging in! This is some superb wrists and timing. This is a length ball outside off, he makes room, and then punches this with an open face, over deep point. Lovely hitting

20.5

Bresnan to Raina, 1 run, a mis-hit for a change, as he inside-edges this into his ankle. However, he charges through for one

India 171/5   SK Raina 37* (15b 3x4 3x6)

21.2

Dernbach to Raina, 1 run, Tiwary is surely jetlagged. He has run straight into Raina as they take a single off the pull. No damage done as they slow down just in time

21.4

Dernbach to Raina, 2 runs, slower length ball, Raina has nearly cleaned up Tiwary with this club. Bell runs to his right at wide long-on, and makes a sensational dive to keep them down to two

21.5

Dernbach to Raina, 1 leg bye, Missed out. That was a gift. Regulation pace. On a length. Into the pads. With the fine-leg up. Gets only a leg-bye

India 178/5   SK Raina 40* (18b 3x4 3x6)

22.1

Bresnan to Raina, OUT, Stokes makes amends for that misfield. Raina gets too much under this length ball, trying to clear deep square, but the leading edge seems to have touched the moon and come back. Stokes at deep square keeps his eyes on it, and has to dive forward at last moment to complete the catch. What a cameo from Raina, though

SK Raina c Stokes b Bresnan 40 (30m 19b 3x4 3x6) SR: 210.52

India 182/6   SK Raina 40 (19b 3x4 3x6)
