Dernbach to Rahane, FOUR, anticipates another short-of-a-length delivery, and is waiting with the slog-pull. Nothing wrong with the delivery, but it's gone flying over midwicket

Patel to Rahane, FOUR, superb placement here, this is short of a length, he chips this on the up. It's like driving a long hop. But again dead straight. Gets four more

11.6

Patel to Rahane, 2 runs, flicked away off the pads, but wide enough of long-on to let them come back for the second

India 111/2   AM Rahane 47* (38b 5x4 1x6)

15.1

Bopara to Rahane, 2 runs, lovely late-cut, almost from inside Kieswetter's gloves. In fact it hits the gloves on the way through, which means it doesn't travel for four

15.2

Bopara to Rahane, 1 run, slower short ball, worked around the corner to bring up his maiden ODI fifty. A heart applause form the balcony, and shake of hands with Kohli. Sixty, forty, fifty (give or take) in his first three international innings

18.1

Swann to Rahane, 1 run, flicked off the pads, gets a single to short fine

18.5

Swann to Rahane, OUT, Kohli won't be running too many for Rahane. Ajinkya looks for the straight loft that he has played so well so far, but gets too close to the pitch of the ball here, and doesn't get optimum elevation. Swann takes a smart, overhead return catch

India 143/4   AM Rahane 54 (47b 5x4 1x6)
