10.1

Anderson to Kohli, no run, Kohli stays in his crease and defends a length ball towards cover

10.2

Anderson to Kohli, OUT, Kohli's struggle has ended and this is now too easy for Anderson. He pitches just short of a length outside off and seams the ball away, Kohli stays in his crease and hangs his bat out, getting an edge to the wicketkeeper. Soft, soft dismissal. Anderson is having a terrific game, three wickets and a direct hit, in his 150th ODI.

V Kohli c †Kieswetter b Anderson 7 (18m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.88

India 25/4   V Kohli 7 (18b)
