Bresnan to Rahane, 2 runs, turned away off the back foot ot the right of fine leg, dives full length to make it back just in time despite an accurate throw from the deep


Bresnan to Rahane, 1 run, nipping away after landing on a good length on middle, gets on the back foot and opens the face slightly to guide it behind point for a single

India 8/0   AM Rahane 3* (2b)

Finn to Rahane, no run, ooh, bangs it hard outside off and it nips away just a hint, a threatening deviation that, just beat the outside edge as Rahane poked at it


Finn to Rahane, no run, goodish length on the off, gets a stride out and defends it confidently towards cover


Finn to Rahane, no run, back of a length outside off, nipping away as well, drops his hands on that one


Finn to Rahane, 1 wide, down the leg side, Rahane doesn't bother chasing, called a wide by the umpire


Finn to Rahane, 1 wide, a touch too wide on the off side this time, landed wide and moved away further


Finn to Rahane, 2 runs, angling in towards middle and leg, turned away wide of square leg for a couple more runs


Finn to Rahane, no run, full on leg stump, tries to work it into the leg side, misses, appeal for lbw, would have probably gone down as he missed it while attempting the flick


Finn to Rahane, no run, good length a touch outside off, gets forward and dabs that towards cover

India 12/0   AM Rahane 5* (8b)

Bresnan to Rahane, no run, Bresnan gets some work on the new ball, shaping it away from Rahane, who raises his arms high tp leave


Bresnan to Rahane, 1 run, a probing delivery from Bresnan, nipping away off the pitch once more, but it's well played by Rahane, who softens his wrists and plays it down through gully

India 14/0   AM Rahane 6* (10b)

Finn to Rahane, no run, a splice-jarring length from Finn keeps Rahane pinned back in his crease


Finn to Rahane, no run, fuller, and a touch wider from the gangly fast bowler. Rahane lets it go outside off


Finn to Rahane, 1 leg bye, Finn thunders to the crease, knees pumping high, and hits the deck hard, the ball nipping off the seam and stinging Rahane's thigh


Finn to Rahane, no run, Finn is bowling with vim and vigour. Again he hits the seam, the ball buzzing in past Rahane's bat to hit him on the thigh


Finn to Rahane, no run, too much for Rahane. Too quick, and the extra bounce and seam movement means bat beats ball once again

India 18/0   AM Rahane 6* (15b)

Bresnan to Rahane, no run, full and straight. Rahane turns it off the pads to midwicket

India 19/0   AM Rahane 6* (16b)

Bresnan to Rahane, no run, full and straight, Rahane nudging to wide mid-on


Bresnan to Rahane, no run, metronomic stuff from Bresnan, but Rahane is well forward with bat and pad together to keep it out


Bresnan to Rahane, no run, Rahane continues to sit in defence, defending another length delivery


Bresnan to Rahane, no run, nudged just wide of point, but nowhere near the middle and there's no run to be had


Bresnan to Rahane, 1 run, a touch too straight from Bresnan, and Rahane finally finds the single down to fine leg

India 20/0   AM Rahane 7* (21b)

Finn to Rahane, no run, this could be Finn's quickest ball of the day so far. It's full and straight, Rahane cracking it back down the pitch before Finn gets a palm to it in his follow-through


Finn to Rahane, 1 run, ah, Rahane might have made more of this were he in a more attacking mood. A low full toss is sent down but just a single is the result, the ball being flicked down to fine leg


Finn to Rahane, 2 runs, dropped by Samit Patel at third man! Rahane gave himself room and sliced at the ball, scooping it high towards third man where Patel ran round and set himself to take a regulation chance ... but spilt it and let it through his legs


Finn to Rahane, no run, and now an appeal for lbw. But it's turned down, and rightly so. The ball had seemed in sharply to strike Rahane on the thigh, and would've sailed well over leg stump


Finn to Rahane, 1 run, Finn is full to end the over, Rahane stretching forward and tapping a drive just wide of mid-off for one

India 27/0   AM Rahane 11* (26b)

Bresnan to Rahane, no run, rare lapse from Bresnan, but he's not punished as Rahane's cut is stopped at point by Bell


Bresnan to Rahane, FOUR, not this time! Bresnan is short and wide once again and this time Rahane takes full toll, the ball pinging out of the middle of a cut and racing away


Bresnan to Rahane, no run, straighter from Bresnan, and Rahane hops back to defend to leg


Bresnan to Rahane, no run, another full-ish, straight length delivery is pushed softly back towards the bowler


Bresnan to Rahane, no run, after a poor start to the over Bresnan has come back well, a third delivery is fired at the top of off to draw a defensive stroke from Rahane


Bresnan to Rahane, FOUR, another boundary! Rahane lifts the ball to long leg with a scoop-flick. Several fielders set off after it, but none can get there in time, and that over has ruined Bresnan's figures a touch

India 35/0   AM Rahane 19* (32b 2x4)

Finn to Rahane, no run, Finn stays full to the right-hander, who nudges to the man at midwicket


Finn to Rahane, no run, a Finn lifter outside off is prodded to point


Finn to Rahane, no run, that is a snorter of a delivery! Again Finn finds disconcerting bounce outside off at good pace. Rahane fishes at it, but the edge is beaten


Finn to Rahane, FOUR, edged! And four! As in the last match, Finn is finding no reward for some very probing bowling. Rahane was totally squared up by one that left him off the pitch, the ball almost taking the leading edge but flying through third slip and down to the boundary


Finn to Rahane, 1 run, Finn targets the yorker to finish but isn't quite on target, the ball glanced to fine leg

India 43/0   AM Rahane 24* (37b 3x4)

Dernbach to Rahane, 2 leg byes, great start! Dernbach seams his first delivery sharply back in, beating Rahane on the inside edge and rapping him on the front pad. The appeal is turned down as the ball rolls to third man ... Close shout


Dernbach to Rahane, 1 leg bye, again he hits the pad, but this time the ball goes to leg to allow a single


Dernbach to Rahane, 1 run, nudged into space by Rahane, another sharp single the result


Dernbach to Rahane, no run, deceived by the slower ball! Well Dernbach didn't wait long to use his favourite weapon, and Rahane didn't really read it at all. He was through his leg-side push before the ball even got to him

India 49/0   AM Rahane 25* (41b 3x4)

Finn to Rahane, no run, good intent from Rahane, charging the tall fast bowler. The execution isn't quite there, however, as the ball takes a thick inside edge and cannons off the pad


Finn to Rahane, no run, the movement in to the right-hander means the ball takes the inside edge again - this time off a drive - and rolls into the leg side


Finn to Rahane, 1 wide, Finn loses his radar, spearing one down leg. He's very displeased at his own effort, and gives himself a good ticking off as he marches back to his mark


Finn to Rahane, no run, that's better. Bang on target and Rahane defends


Finn to Rahane, no run, turned wristily into the leg side, but straight to the fielder


Finn to Rahane, 1 run, and just a single to finish what has been another reasonably tight over from the bowler

India 52/0   AM Rahane 26* (46b 3x4)

Dernbach to Rahane, OUT, gone! Dernbach strikes. Rahane attempted a mow to leg, but the ball - quite possibly another slower one - took the top edge and looped down to third man, where Finn sprinted across to his left and took a great diving catch

AM Rahane c Finn b Dernbach 26 (54m 47b 3x4 0x6) SR: 55.31

India 52/1   AM Rahane 26 (47b 3x4)
