0.6

Maxwell to Pathan, 1 leg bye, full, on the pads, turns a little, beats a half-sweep, concedes a leg-bye

India 8/0   IK Pathan 0* (1b)

1.1

Starc to Pathan, 1 run, length ball, angling in, pushed into the leg side for one

1.3

Starc to Pathan, no run, length ball, angling in towards top of off, punched to mid-off

1.4

Starc to Pathan, 1 leg bye, short, skiddy, beats him for pace on the pull, but Pathan gets a leg-bye

India 11/0   IK Pathan 1* (4b)

2.1

Cummins to Pathan, 1 run, length ball, outside off, push-driven wide of mid-off

2.6

Cummins to Pathan, OUT, great footwork from Cummins. Short of a length, gets a little big on him, he drops it just off the pitch and runs. On most occasions these result in singles, but Cummins has other ideas here. he strides towards the ball, and kicks it towards the stump, dislodging the bails a second before Gambhir's bat has slid in. Top work from Cummins

G Gambhir run out 17 (12m 12b 3x4 0x6) SR: 141.66

India 21/1   IK Pathan 2* (6b)

3.1

Starc to Pathan, 1 run, pitched up, middle and leg, flicked away to deep square leg

3.4

Starc to Pathan, 1 run, pulled away off the front foot, gets a single to deep square leg

India 28/1   IK Pathan 4* (8b)

4.2

Watson to Pathan, SIX, allrounder to allrounder, Watson will not be pleased. Length ball, outside off, and Pathan has lofted him right over his head. An evidence of the batting talent

4.3

Watson to Pathan, no run, drops this into the leg side, finds short midwicket

4.4

Watson to Pathan, 1 run, full, on the pads, flicked away for a single

4.6

Watson to Pathan, FOUR, top shot from Pathan again. Jumps out of the crease, makes room too, takes a length ball from off and lofts it over point. That's a difficult shot to play

India 42/1   IK Pathan 15* (12b 1x4 1x6)

5.2

Christian to Pathan, 1 run, dragged from outside off, gets a single to mid-on

5.4

Christian to Pathan, 1 run, Pathan gives him the charge, he bowls the slower ball, Pathan guides it fine on the leg side, Watson makes a diving save at short fine leg

India 46/1   IK Pathan 17* (14b 1x4 1x6)

6.1

Hogg to Pathan, FOUR, stars off with a big wide down the leg side, but Pathan sees an easy four for himself and guides this between the keeper and short fine leg

6.2

Hogg to Pathan, 1 run, gets the length and line better, on a length, middle and leg, turning away, worked into the leg side for one

6.4

Hogg to Pathan, no run, huge shout for lbw short delivery, skids on, pitches leg, but doesn't straighten enough

6.5

Hogg to Pathan, no run, another shout, this one doesn't turn, though, and is sliding down leg. Pathan is playing for the turn, but is not quite getting it here, and has twice come close to being given out lbw

6.6

Hogg to Pathan, no run, tossed up, this turns after pitching outside leg, beating his sweep. He won't even get a leg-bye here

India 56/1   IK Pathan 22* (19b 2x4 1x6)

7.3

Cummins to Pathan, 2 runs, full, on off, goes off the outer half of the bat, a misfield from Warner at point costs them two runs

7.4

Cummins to Pathan, 1 run, it's the bouncer again, but Pathan's mis-hit doesn't carry to deep midwicket. Top effort from Starc, though. A bit too quick for Pathan, but it never looks like carrying. Starc charges in, though, puts a full-length dive in, but reaches it on the half-volley

India 59/2   IK Pathan 25* (21b 2x4 1x6)

8.6

Hogg to Pathan, 1 run, flighted generously, almost a yorker, dug out for a single to the right of short extra cover

India 66/2   IK Pathan 26* (22b 2x4 1x6)

9.1

Maxwell to Pathan, 1 run, driven to long-on for one

9.3

Maxwell to Pathan, no run, looks for a vertical-bat pull, is beaten by the pace off the pitch

9.4

Maxwell to Pathan, 1 run, Pathan charges at him, mis-hits, which is just as well because it doesn't carry to long-on

9.6

Maxwell to Pathan, no run, appeal for lbw as this short ball skids and stays low, but it is also headed down leg side

India 70/2   IK Pathan 28* (26b 2x4 1x6)

10.2

Watson to Pathan, 2 runs, another mis-hit from Pathan, and it is safe again. Short from Watson, looks to pull it, gets a bottom edge past the keeper

10.3

Watson to Pathan, no run, length ball, on the pads, worked away, but not through the infield

10.4

Watson to Pathan, 1 run, pulled away to deep square leg for one

10.6

Watson to Pathan, OUT, Watson strikes again. India might even be thankful that Pathan is out. Memories of Ravindra Jadeja's promotion all those years ago when he tried his best to hit out but just couldn't. This is full, on the pads, flicked away, straight to short midwicket

IK Pathan c White b Watson 31 (48m 30b 2x4 1x6) SR: 103.33

India 74/4   IK Pathan 31 (30b 2x4 1x6)
