India 118/1   V Kohli 14* (9b 3x4)   R Rampaul 4.2-0-23-0

18.6

Rampaul to Kohli, FOUR, misfield! Gayle signaled to Rampaul to target Kohli's helmet, he bowled it short as instructed and Kohli was equal to the task pulling in front of his helmet, the ball brushed past Pollard at short leg and the fielder at the boundary dived and made a mess of it

India 122/1   V Kohli 18* (13b 4x4)   R Rampaul 5-0-27-0

India 136/2   S Dhawan 56* (51b 7x4)   SP Narine 5.3-0-33-2
