Bresnan to PA Patel, SIX, little dynamo, incredible shot.... he has walked at Bresnan and flicked him for a six! The flick-pull, what wrists. Just charges at Bresnan and gets under this shortish delivery, hits the skirting at the midwicket boundary

India 19/0   PA Patel 18* (12b 2x4 1x6)   TT Bresnan 1.1-0-16-0

Bresnan to PA Patel, SIX, Patel is reading as though the bowlers' intent is written on the big screen. Sits back deep, gets under this bouncer, which doesn't get up mind you, and pulls it up and over the area between deep square leg and deep midwicket

India 29/0   PA Patel 28* (16b 3x4 2x6)   TT Bresnan 1.5-0-26-0

Broad to Rahane, SIX, after bowling some lovely outswingers last over, Broad goes back to bowling short! Rahane has absolutely launched it rows into the crowd behind deep square. That's a proper dismissal of a short ball

India 49/1   AM Rahane 9* (8b 1x6)   SCJ Broad 1.4-0-12-0

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)   JW Dernbach 3-0-24-0

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

India 152/4   SK Raina 22* (10b 1x4 2x6)   JW Dernbach 3.3-0-32-0

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

India 170/5   SK Raina 36* (14b 3x4 3x6)   TT Bresnan 2.4-0-36-1
