Dawlat Zadran to Gambhir, FOUR, wrong line, Gambhir missed out once in the previous over, this time he doesn't, it was on the pads, short of a length, glanced fine for four

India 14/0   G Gambhir 9* (6b 1x4)   Dawlat Zadran 0.5-0-6-0

Shapoor Zadran to Sehwag, FOUR, Sehwag doesn't stop going for his shot even if he has just been beaten, that was a length ball on the pads, a lofted whip to the midwicket boundary

India 20/1   V Sehwag 7* (7b 1x4)   Shapoor Zadran 1.5-0-12-1

Gulbadin Naib to Kohli, FOUR, lovely stroke, from Kohli this time, driven on the up, doesn't try to power it too much, it races through to the cover boundary, this guy is in some form

India 33/2   V Kohli 6* (9b 1x4)   Gulbadin Naib 0.2-0-4-0

Karim Sadiq to Kohli, FOUR, drilled powerfully down the ground, dances down the pitch and drives it a touch uppishly to the right of long-off, four more to Kohli

India 56/2   V Kohli 21* (19b 2x4 1x6)   Karim Sadiq 1.2-0-12-0

Karim Sadiq to Kohli, FOUR, lashed down the ground by Kohli, once more Kohli gets an on-the-up drive to the right of the mid-off fielder, plenty of power on that one

India 79/3   V Kohli 33* (28b 3x4 1x6)   Karim Sadiq 3.1-0-24-1

Shapoor Zadran to Kohli, FOUR, Kohli is one of the best when it comes to hitting towards extra cover, he shows that again here, he charges out and lofts that over extra cover, doesn't bother keeping it down, the fielder at long-off races to his left but can't get near the ball

India 92/3   V Kohli 45* (34b 4x4 2x6)   Shapoor Zadran 3.2-0-23-2

Shapoor Zadran to Raina, FOUR, straight as they come! Raina doesn't bother getting to the bounce of the ball, launches that one on the up, straight towards the sightscreen, bounces before reaching the rope

India 97/3   SK Raina 8* (9b 1x4)   Shapoor Zadran 3.4-0-28-2

Shapoor Zadran to Raina, FOUR, a Twenty20 heave from Raina, he gets a boundary though he didn't time it too well, it was a poor delivery from Shapoor, a high full toss on the stumps, basically asking Raina to put it away wherever he wants to, Raina loves the midwicket heave

India 101/3   SK Raina 12* (10b 2x4)   Shapoor Zadran 3.5-0-32-2

Samiullah Shenwari to Raina, FOUR, full and wide, sliced away by Raina, who wanted to send that towards cover but gets it instead behind deep point for four

India 106/3   SK Raina 17* (12b 3x4)   Samiullah Shenwari 0.1-0-4-0

Samiullah Shenwari to Raina, FOUR, full ball outside off, and that is crashed towards sweeper cover, and another mistake in the field by the man in the deep, he doesn't bend enough to get his hand on the ball, a boundary results, and the fielder seems to have pulled his hamstring as well

India 121/4   SK Raina 27* (21b 4x4)   Samiullah Shenwari 1.3-0-15-0

Mohammad Nabi to Raina, FOUR, that Raina midwicket heave makes an appearance again, that was a length ball outside leg stump, dismissed by Raina

India 126/4   SK Raina 32* (26b 5x4)   Mohammad Nabi 2.2-0-14-0

Dawlat Zadran to Dhoni, FOUR, over the wicket, a length ball, sat up for MSD, bludgeons it to the wide long-on boundary

India 143/4   MS Dhoni 8* (5b 1x4)   Dawlat Zadran 3.5-0-25-1

Mohammad Nabi to Raina, FOUR, power from Raina, a full toss on the pads, Raina skips away from leg stump and hammers that to the wide long-on boundary

India 147/4   SK Raina 38* (32b 6x4)   Mohammad Nabi 3.1-0-23-0

Mohammad Nabi to Dhoni, FOUR, MSD power, another attempted yorker, this time Dhoni gets under it, absolutely murders it down the ground, no stopping that one

India 153/5   MS Dhoni 12* (8b 2x4)   Mohammad Nabi 3.5-0-29-1
